First debuted in his mix for Diplo&Friends on BBC Radio 1xtra, our friend Valentino Khan‘s new tune, “Cavepaint,” goes into the Jurassic era with caveman chatter and enough pumping bass to feel like you’ve been hit over the head with a club. “Cavepaint” also comes along with a Trap VIP counterpart, where Valentino slows it down and brings in the real dinosaur bass. What is dinosaur bass you say? Only one way to find out. And make sure to catch Val’s upcoming remix for Felix Cartal out on Dim Mak in the next few weeks!

With all the craziness of the holidays I almost missed this new track from Felix Cartal. As the B-side to his recently released “No Sleep” also with Natalie Angiuli, “Lullaby” slows things down a bit and shows us Felix’s more melodic side. In his own words “I wanted to create something less aggressive, something more memorable and song-oriented…” Well, I definitely think he hit the mark with this one! Best part…you can download it below!
If you haven’t noticed, our homie Clockwork has been climbing the ladder pretty quickly in the past 6 months, with multiple releases on Dim Mak, a remix on Interscope, as well as a supporting tour for Felix Cartal and an upcoming tour with Dillon Francis. He’s also just signed a two-track EP titled Titan with Diplo‘s Mad Decent imprint due out on August 7th, and this morning Henry sent us over “BBBS,” the B-side of the release that is an absolute bassline monster. Stream after the jump and make sure to catch Clockwork on Dillon’s Wet And Reckless Tour this fall. √+Continue Reading
Next Tuesday, May 29th will see the release of Felix Cartal‘s ‘Black To White’ remix EP on Dim Mak Records, featuring new renditions from Angger Dimas, Clockwork, and The Loops of Fury. Today, Felix has been kind enough to give us an exclusive listen to the remix from Indonesian Big Room maestro, Angger Dimas, in which Dimas stays true to form and provides a heavy Progressive Electro take on the vocally-driven original. A calming build for the first couple of minutes leads to a thumping breakdown fit for any main room or festival stage. Listen here first and make sure to pick up the full EP with all remixes next Tuesday on Beatport. Continue Reading

GDD™ fav, Felix Cartal, will be releasing his sophomore album, Different Faces, on Dim Mak Records next Tuesday, March 27th, and today we are able to exclusively premiere the heaviest, rawest song from the LP, ‘Triple Deke.’ This track brings me back to the first thuds that I heard from FC back in 2007/2008 — the winding breakdowns and dancefloor smashing hooks are signature Felix Cartal. Here’s what he had to say about it:
“Possibly the heaviest track on the record, also the most effective on the dance floor. One of the few songs on the record that touches on my roots of making very aggressive, almost punk rock energy in dance music. I named it Triple Deke to allude to my past, a hockey reference, a big part of my life when I was younger, the same way this heavy music was important to me when I was younger as well.”Continue Reading
