I was truly taken aback when I first heard Mosh‘s full-length album Monarchy. I felt like I had time-traveled back to 2007, when French electro acts like Justice and SebastiAn ruled the roost. I remember after Cross dropped a plethora of people began to experiment with DAWs, attempting to recreate those magical rock-inspired French grooves. Now nearly five years later, Mosh has succeeded where most have failed.
Mosh’s album Monarchy is a true full-length album. Mosh has not only managed to make Monarchy listenable in its entirety, but has also made it enjoyable from start to finish. Monarchy encapsulates everything that made 2007 seem so special, throws it into a blender and serves it up cold. The album really has it all: hip-hop inspired house beats, dark distorted bass lines, head-nodding grooves, and most importantly, power.
Mosh was also kind enough to put together an exceptional mix just for you. Both his album and the mix are available for FREE download below.

Last year turned out to be a great year for the 19-year-old German born producer Etnik and for good reason. With a plethora of well known producers praising the young prodigy for his dark and unique sound, Etnik exploded all over the EDM scene. The final kicker may have been when Skrillex shared Etnik’s newest remix of the track, Summer, by the Berlin-based indie duo, I Heart Sharks. Ever since, Etnik has been on powerful producers’ radars as he continues to churn out brilliant tunes left and right. I consider Etnik to be one of my favorite producers, so I could barely contain my excitement when he agreed to do a GDD™ interview and record an exclusive mix just for you dirty dancers.
