ODESZA, the Pacific North West-based production duo consisting of Harrison Mills (Catacombkid) and Clayton Knight (BeachesBeaches), just released an inventive new EP, My Friends Never Die, as a follow-up to their debut album, Summer’s Gone. Once again, the duo has created a purely original array of sun-soaked, soulful hip-hop grooves accented by glittering melodies and fine tuned vocal samples.
ODESZA now offers up a special GDD™ Guest Mix to supplement their new release. With the inclusion of their own tracks and others from Vindata, TEED, Bonobo, Djemba Djemba, and Kaytranada, among others, they’ve put together some great listening material for you all to enjoy.

Main Course maestro and recent GDD™ stage EDC artist, Astronomar, is giving away his wonky remix of Flume‘s “Insane” today, and he must have taken the song title to heart when putting together this rendition because it’s a wild one. Pick it up for free and give Mar some love on his Facebook.
For this week’s Artist Collab series for The Dirt, I’m very excited to be teaming up with one of the baddest DJs on the planet, Anna Lunoe. Along with her sorcery on the decks, Anna is a phenomenal producer, she has serious remix game, her apparel line rocks, she kills it all across social media & pretty much dominates at life.
Check out Anna’s picks of some of her hottest tunes of the moment and what she has to say about them. Together we bring you a 10-pack of ultra cool, hot new jams, a handful of which you can grab for FREE!

GDD has decided to put a new spin on our weekly Dirts, and instead of pairing up internally we’re branching out and pairing up with artists. So every Thursday, hop on board with us and some of our favorite artists – where you’ll get your weekly dose of 100% free tracks from us and a cool little selection of music that gives you a bit of insight into the minds of the DJs and producers you know and love.
I’ve partnered up with none other than one of my best friends, probably one of the funniest and coolest dudes in the business, the #10 gentleman on my Sexiest DJs list: Max from Prince Club. He’s the DJ version of Tom Hardy and smokes more than a chimney, and because of that we present his top 5 tracks to smoke to. Click the jump to see some of my favorite free tracks of the moment, and check out Max’s favorite stoner jams as well. Enjoy!
Yolanda Be Cool‘s massive rebranding effort from their 2010 hit single, “We No Speak Americano,” has proved to be very fruitful. Signing to Dim Mak Records for the U.S. release of their new album turned a lot of heads, and their mix for the label’s pool party in Miami stirred up a lot of passion. With many ID’s on their way according to some facebook activity, a new song and video titled, “A Baru In New York,” has come into being.
