It wasn’t long ago when Jon Pegnato made up half of LA Riots, but now, he has embarked on a solo mission under the Hot Mouth moniker, bringing Electro and House to the masses. In the past couple of months, Hot Mouth has been busy. Besides signing with Liaison Artists and playing at the Palms in Vegas every week, he’s been working on collaborations with Felix Cartal, Nom De Strip, TJR, and more, as well as putting together a monthly mix series for our lucky ears here at GDD™. Now, it is time for Hot Mouth to make his VS debut at The Central in Santa Monica, and we couldn’t be more excited. Support on the night will come from SF’s Realboy, Gojira, and Check&Mate.

RSVP HERE for free entry before 11PM! Read on for more info and tunes. Continue Reading

Our friends Felix Cartal and Dim Mak Records are celebrating the release of Felix’s new single, ‘Don’t Turn On The Lights,’ out today on iTunes and Beatport. Utilizing the beautiful vocals of Polina, Felix Cartal balances a monster single that you’d expect on Dim Mak with a Big Room sound that you’d expect to hear at XS in Vegas. Well done sir.

For our thirty-sixth edition of the infamous DIRT, we bring you a top 12 chart of some of the best tracks right now in electronic music from pretty much across the board. Though they all share a common dirty-ness to them, we chose these tracks for unique reasons – and what better way to convey that then to charm you with our personal opinion on why you should direct yourself to the download link immediately (the best way we know how to).

drink up dirty dancers…

///BONES

DIRTY
Felix Cartal & Keatch – Lazy Bird (Original Mix) √+
I’ve literally waited over a year for this track to be released, and for it to have stayed locked away until just a week ago is a marvel in its own. We all know that Felix Cartal has caught our attention once again with his recent productions, but the help of Belgium-based Keatch makes their collaborative EP’s Solar and now Animals unmatchable. Grab this in 192 and do yourself a solid and purchase the full EP here.

BIG ROOM
Swanky Tunes & Hard Rock Sofa – Feedback (Original Mix) √+
This summer wherever you are in festival mode, you’re gonna hear headliners from the main stage (you should know who) playing this massive collaboration between big room track kings Swanky Tunes and Hard Rock Sofa. This one also has the same riff as Daft Punk’s ‘Rollin & Scratchin’ – but takes it to a level suitable for crowds in the 25,000+ category. BIG.

DIRTY DISCO
In Flagranti – Worse For Wear (Punks Jump Up Remix) √+
The first time I heard this in the Light Year Summer Mix, I played the mix over and over just because of this track. The howling bass line behind the drums, claps and cowbells (with a hint of dirty sax) turn the original vocal into a drunken disco fire-starter.

BASS
DJ Fresh – Louder (Club Mix) √+
Even though I don’t play out dubstep (or bass music for that matter) in my sets, I still respect it very much because of anthems like this one. This track is special however because of the newly found sound of drum & bass hero DJ Fresh. Groundbreaking tune, a MUST even if you don’t care for dubstep. Grab this 192, but get serious with the 320 here.

FUNKY
Julio Bashmore – Battle For Middle You √+
This officially came out at the very start of this year, but I haven’t been able to stop playing it out in my sets, in my car, or any where I can feel some low end with this baby. Julio Bashmore creates a love child with funk, soul and bass driven rhythm. In fact, the lyrics in the tune actually ring true because they definitely make me wanna get up, stomp my feet, and get down.

FUTURE
Kry Wolf – 3001 (Original Mix) √+
AC Slater struck gold when he discovered Kry Wolf and signed him to his Party Like Us label. His production flies across the board, but this track is titled ’3001′ because it is takes you that far ahead in time to the future of the drop. Let this one grow on you, it’s the best kind of WEIRD you could ask for.

SUMMER BLOCKBUSTER
CSS – Hit Me Like a Rock (Dillon Francis Remix)
Another killer free tune from Mr.Francis. Radio rips have been floating around for awhile, but it was finally released this past week.

DRUM & BASS
Botnek – Jerpa (Botnek Drum & Bass Remix)
An uncommon Drum & Bass remix from this up and coming Canadian Duo. If you like this track, check out the guest Dirt they did a few weeks back for some more major tunes. They are definitely a group to watch.

MOOMBAHTON
Tittsworth & Alvin Risk – Pendejas
Great new track from two of Washington DC’s best. More along the lines of moombahcore. If you dig artists like Munchi & Dillon Francis you will love this track.

ELECTRO DISCO
LBCK – Instant Party
Great new track with a great summer vibe, Huge EP from the Long Beach based duo.

GRINDCORE
Bassnectar – Upside Down
A new release from one of the bass game’s heavyweights. It is just what we have come to expect from Bassnectar over the years: HEAVY HEAVY bass.

ELECTRO HOUSE
Lady Gaga – The Edge of Glory (Porter Robinson Club Mix)
I am usually not a huge fan of any of the new pop electro house that has been going around these days. But I must admit, I really like this track. The drop in the middle is worth the download!

ZIPPED UP
• The Dirt #36 – ///BONES & KMOC.zip (all 12 tracks!)

This week marked the official start of summer, and what better way to welcome my next mix – dedicated the almighty festival season and of course the infamous 3 month vacation that all you people know and love. I’m sure most of you will be hitting the road to Las Vegas this weekend for the big one, so this is your goto firestarter for the road trip ahead. For all those otherwise, pump this at work, while you’re pre-gaming before going to the Avalon (or our VERSUS party), stuck in not cool traffic, or when the DJ you booked for your ‘glow’ party just ain’t bringin it. Welcome to summer my dirty dancers, get after it.

Pay attention kiddos, big tunes ahead!  In this week’s edition of “The Dirt,” we are proud to present the incredibly talented, Linus Eklow, aka Style of Eye.  The Stockholm native is known for his eclectic sound, which stylistically utilizes a fresh blend of techno, house and a healthy dose of raw, grinding electro. He has had a considerable amount of success with releases on Dirtybird Records, whom you’ll recall from the from Claude VonStroke/Justin Martin CONTROL at Avalon last Friday.  With support from some of dance music’s biggest names (John Dahlback, Tiga, and Swedish House Mafia to name a few), Style Of Eye is on track to fulfilling DJ Mag’s prediction of becoming an “Important Future Star.”  We predict he will continually blow us away with innovative productions, pumping DJ sets and generally just being a really cool guy.  Most of these are unreleased or brand new so read more for streams of his top tracks with my commentary after the jump…

SAN FRANCISCO! I am pleased to announce that our friends at Our House Records will be putting on yet another electrifying night in the City on April 30th at 330 Ritch with the one and only, Felix Cartal. OHR artists Realboy will be there for support as well as Bay Area residents, Dynamics. Now, for those that have never seen Felix play out before, this is a STRONG recommendation from yours truly to see the man at work. For those that have seen him before and might think that he’ll play just another Electro set, I strongly disagree. I was lucky enough to catch Felix’ closing set at Nikki Beach at No Sugar Added in Miami last Friday, and I can solidly state that he was the most on-point I have ever seen him, not to mention the GIANT new bombs that he dropped on the sweaty 4:30AM crowd. Take it from me, you will not be disappointed. Buy tickets HERE now!

And if you haven’t already, check out these monsters that Felix will unleash on ya…

Kung Lao’s Theme by Felix Cartal

I’m sure many of you have seen the name Clockwork before. Whether it was on GDD™, Hype Machine, or on the winner’s list of multiple big time remix competitions, it is pretty apparent that this young lad has made some waves in Electroland in the past year. Originally from LA, now transplanted in NYC, Henry Steinway (Clockwork) is on the rise in the world of Electro, but he doesn’t want to bore you with 2008 sidechaining and heard-that-before bangers. His unique take on the over-saturated genre ostracizes his music from the repetition that we are all getting a bit sick of.

I got a chance to chat a bit with Henry about some exciting upcoming releases and his recent Dem Slackers remix competition win as well as his stance on Electro and where he sees it going from here. We were also lucky enough to snag a GDD™ Exclusive mixtape from Clockwork featuring a handful of unreleased and exclusive tracks, so make sure you grab that with the interview after the jump.
