Could Mumbai Science be coming on any stronger right now? Ladies who spend most of their nights out constantly fending off overly aggressive, creepy dudes … I now feel your pain. First the Belgian duo commandeered Halloween’s biggest sound system, as seemingly every DJ at HARD Haunted Mansion in LA dropped ‘Ancova,’ and now their new release ‘Gold’ off Lektroluv apparently stole the biggest global event of last weekend too, I Love Techno 2010. Find out why everyone (Erol Alkan, Boys Noize, Crookers, Sound of Stereo, Djedjotronic and Fake Blood, to name a few) have been banging their tracks out recently.
• Mumbai Science – Gold [Buy on Beatport]
Check out their latest mix out on Lektroluv Records on their Soundcloud.
The NOOB and NT89 remixes meet the gold standard as well, so pass on that cheeseburger combo tomorrow, and grab this EP off iTunes/Beatport instead. Or better yet grab the GOLD VINYL* from the Lektroluv Shop!
*Seriously, the vinyl is fucking gold!
You stay classy, internet …

Halloween is approaching fast and what better way to finish off your Friday night than with two of electro’s scariest producers: Cheap Thrill’s Fake Blood and Huoratron (whose beard could hold its own against Brian Wilson’s). Blasthaus is throwing the official Subsonic Spookfest afterparty where Fake Blood will be throwing down an extended late night set alongside some secret guests. The first reader (21+ only plz) to send an email to tronjeremy at gottadancedirty dot com naming Fake Blood’s two side projects will score a pair of tickets to the late night festivities. As always, here’s some tunes from Friday night’s artists for the uninitiated.

HARD 13 was incredible. deadmau5 was the special guest, playing alongside Steve Duda and Tommy Lee. The balcony was raging harder than the floor and pretty much every person in the place was clearly “on a good one.” Here’s a couple clips I took followed by some longer clips of each artist, plus the tunes you may in fact be dying to snag after you watch said clips. Oh, dear readers, what a night…
In the clip above, Jack Beats engaged a very enthusiastic crowd with some tunage by our dear friend Sonic C.
As you can see, the balcony was the spot to be, with easy access to the upstairs stage and our most distinguished special guests.
Boy 8-Bit was the partiest motherfucker in Club Nokia. I was very pleasantly surprised by his set, which was my clear favorite of the night. And he looks exactly like Tyler Carlson √+
He closed out his set with a very pretty transition between these two:
Heaps of totally fun HARD beach balls were released from the top at the end of Jack Beat’s set. This made many people very, very happy and is always a nice touch. Adding simple little extra details like this to your party can have a big effect and is always recommended.

Fake Blood closed off the main stage with Chilly Gonzales‘ haunting piano cover of Boys Noize and Erol Alkan’s brutalizer “Waves” and his own “The Dozens” off his Fix Your Accent EP, which also comes highly recommended. Buy the proper 320 on beatport after you give it a listen.

Finally here’s a couple clips of WTF (deadmau5, Steve Duda + Tommy Lee) playing in the very cozy upstairs lounge/bar area. Seeing them play what felt like a house party set with everyone crowded around was a very cool experience and topped off a most impressive HARD event. We were able to stand right behind the mau5 and see what he’s doing on his Jazzmutant Lemur in addition to being able to check out Steve Duda’s screen, which full of all kinds of complicated geeky waveforms and wonderment. Tommy Lee just generally kept things pretty party.
All in all, a HARD well done. Nice work Gary Richards.
Not studying for finals,

While our friends to the south will be getting HARD to Fake Blood and Boy 8-Bit on Saturday, we here in San Francisco have the head start on our weekends thanks to Blasthaus, who is hosting both acts at Mezzanine alongside local DJ heros Nisus and Sleazemore. Tickets are still on sale! Mr. Berry and I will be in attendance, passing out our brand new Gotta Dance Dirty stickers like genital warts in Tijuana.

After asking readers last week to define ‘banger’ and ‘mixtape’, let’s kick off the week and ask the audience,
What’s the difference between a cover and a remix?
I’ve picked the following three jams to help spark some discussion.
Honestly, no surprises here but a solid remix nonetheless.

If you thought Calvin Harris’ next single from his upcoming album was going to sound more like last year’s “Dance Wiv Me” or even “I Created Disco” (guilty as charged), think again! Calvin surprised many of us earlier this year with his first single “I’m Not Alone”, which I can only describe as…singer-songwriter trance ballad. Upon first listen of “Ready for the Weekend”, I really didn’t know what to think (except of Elton John), but it’s really starting to grow on me. Take the ultimate Gotta Dance Dirty™ challenge: try to have a bad day while listening to this song. You can win two free tickets from Jonah if you’re really having that bad of a day!
Don’t expect a snarler like “Blood Splashing” from the Fake Blood remix, but this is a must download this if you’re a fan of his remix of Little Boots‘ “Stuck on Repeat”. I love how Fake Blood has the original vocalist sing his name cuts up the “ORIGINAL acapella, and assembling the words with individual vowel and consonant sounds” for each of his remixes (source).

Wolfgang Gartner vs Fake Blood – Flashback to Mars (Denzal Park Mash Up)

Fear not readers; I wouldn’t stick you with a cheesy blend of “Flashback” and “Mars” forced together, but a real treat from duo Denzal Park, featuring Kam Denny from Vandalism. Borrowing those jock jam baseball organs from Fake Blood, this mashup turns “Flashback” into a real ass shaker, you know, if you’re into that sort of thing.
This and “Flat Cold Medina” are my favorites from “The Mash Up Machine”.

i always feel the need to put new fake blood up on here whenever i get a chance, so here is his new remix of hot chip’s “touch too much”. If you are in the LA area before Christmastime you should definitely stop by the Vanguard on the 17th to see a free show sponsored by Scion. hey, i’ll be there, so you should too! have a good week everyone.

who is fake blood? where is fake blood? what is fake blood? i have absolutely no idea but his music is incredible. of course you’ve heard of the banger ‘mars’ but check out some of these nasty remixes done by the mysterious fake blood.

here’s a little bonus too. a pretty decent remix of fake blood’s mars.
