We’ve got you covered with The Dirt #95. Future bass, jacking technohouse, video game trap, and booty tech. Oh and a bit of rave for good measure. Get it into you.
When this show was first announced I couldn’t believe it. Jamie XX — the musical prodigy illustrious for his percussive talent in UK Platinum band The XX as well as his solo work remixing the likes of Gil Scott-Heron, Florence + The Machine, and Adele — is coming to Hollywood to throw down a DJ set atop the roof of The W Hotel at Drai’s. But wait, it gets better. Joining Jamie in the black Red Bull booth will be another GDD™ long-time favorite, Jacques Greene, the soulful and extremely talented producer out of Montreal. If you trust anything we’ve ever told you here on GDD™, listen to me now. Check out this show and we promise you will not regret it.

Jeff Montalvo, aka Seven Lions, is giving us a proper start to our week with a beautiful remix of Florence and the Machine’s hit, “Cosmic Love.” He received a massive amount of support for his “You Got To Go” remix months ago, and now he’s on to the next bass-heavy and blissfully melodic tune. Seven Lions is gaining recognition very quickly, and it is certainly well deserved. Check out the track after the jump and grab the FREE download on his Facebook.

So grab ahold of the new year with this boomer, and I hope to see you all on Tuesdays @ Dim Mak Studios.

OK, A LOT going on here. “Take Care” is a song by Drake featuring Rihanna. “Take Care” samples the Gil Scott-Heron song/Jamie XX remix “I’ll Take Care of U”. Recently, Florence and the Machine, an admirer of all parties named thus far, decided to do a cover of Drake’s “Take Care”. As expected, she nails it (see for yourself).
Not to be outdone, ColeCo (fresh off the MASSIVE success of “Can’t Stop”) have decided to bring some deep disco to the bunch with their super stunning Midnight remix of “Take Care”. Enjoy the beautiful boogie…

This week’s edition of the Dirt comes to you from the musical stylings of BONES and TRE. Can’t say much to start you off other than these top tunes are hot off the press and we wouldn’t wanna share the news with anyone else but our very own dirty dancers. In a sense, all the tracks below are what’s been deemed in the blogosphere as “highly recommended” (if you will). Now dig in kids.
• Surkin – Orbital Highway (Voodoo Mix) √+
I don’t know whether its his infamous 909 + stabbing lead combo, or the magic of creating intergalactic ghetto-tech, but France’s little bad boy just gets it— and you should (get this) too.
• Autodidakt & John Disco – Fake Fred Perry ft. Spoek Mothambo (Instrumental) √+
This original tune became huge this year and had a massive EP release to back it. As much as I love the Sharkslayer Dub on the package, I like the simple crunchy stomp of the original instrumental. (This can be heard in Bart B More’s intro for sets hes played in the last month er so)
• Zeds Dead – Rumble In The Jungle (Original Mix) √+
Had to show some love for ZD’s new tribal bass anthem. Something about the congas, wood block and meanest low end that takes you straight to the Jungle. *Check out our girl Mollie Tarlow’s video from the Mad Decent tune HERE
• Bastian Van Shield – Nobody (Original Mix)
Bastian Van Shield takes us on a fidget techy ride that breaks down into a legendary monologue that any DJ would appreciate. From there, its vocal sampling behind the wheel of this bouncy bus ride.
• Wafa vs. Wolfie – Tom Tom (Slap In The Bass Remix)
Huge remix from the full-fledged EP that recently came out on Malente’s prospering No Brainer label. Must have for those Foamo and Trouble & Bass enthusiasts.
• BONES – The Dirt #47 (zipped)
• Florence & The Machine – What the Water Gave Me (Denzal Park Club Mix) √+
The talented duo from Melbourne, Denzal Park bring us a DJ friendly club mix of Florence and the Machine‘s newest single, What the Water Gave Me. This track captures the essence of the original track while still delivering a techy, groove driven beat.
• Dark & Stormy – Para Los Chicos √+
Everything this kid touches turns to gold! This brand new track from the Boston underground legend is a tech-heads wet dream. Para Los Chicos never gives the listener a dull moment with it’s intricate percussion, dark reminiscent chords and overall groove, make sure to grab this gem!
*Oh and by the way, Dark & Stormy has sent us this track as an exclusive for this week’s dirt!
• Tyler Bates – Two Perfect Moments (Thieves Bootleg)
Los Angeles natives Thieves bring us a melodic and well constructed remix of Tyler Bates‘ single, Two Perfect Moments. Catchy vocals, well thought out sampling and complimentary synth lines give this remix an overall warm and groovy vibe that is impossible to resist.
• Tube Lord – My First Castle (Lemmy Ashton Remix)
This remix has been blowing up the London club scene receiving support from the likes of Scarlett Etienne and many other artists. Lemmy Ashton‘s remix is of Tube Lord‘s single, My First Castle is pure fire! But don’t take my word for it, grab the track and play it out until your hearts content.
• Rebecca & Fiona – Luminary Ones (Denzal Park Remix)
Here is one more must-have from Denzal Park for good measure : )
• TRE – The Dirt #47 (zipped)
Hailing from South London, Breakage has been throwing down beats for almost a decade. Evolving from d’n'b through to jungle and dubstep, he’s shown himself to be an extremely versatile producer and inspiration for London’s Scientific drum & bass movement. Lately his work’s been more dubstep oriented. Check out his new downtempo remix of Florence & The Machine’s Dog Days…
