Tag Archives: Free Willy Wednesdays

It’s March already and it’s award-show season. This week Willy has responded to a large fan request and has re-upped, re-edited, re-mixed and re-mastered one of his best bootlegs – Chief Keef‘s “I Don’t Like”. This was previously only available for a single day before it was taken down, never to be seen again until now! Willy takes the hard-nosed drill sound of Keef and Young Chop and turns it on its head into a massive festival monster. Diplo caned this tune for months and now its your turn. Let us know what you think of this one and keep it locked for more Free Willy Wednesday tunes!

The last Free Willy Wednesday in February brings a smashing original moombahton tune from our pal Willy Joy. While not always mentioned in the genre’s history books, Willy has been a part of the moombahton movement since day one, and this tune serves as a great reminder why. “I’m Losing You” throws a screwed soul sample, classic house stabs, a Tom Morello-style lead and Willy’s signature room-flattening bass into a blender. What comes out is an undeniable primetime club mover. Let us know what you think of this one and keep it locked every Wednesday for more Free Willy Wednesday tunes!

This week, Willy Joy gives us another massive bootleg, this time of the one and only A$AP Rocky. “F**kin’ Problems” gets a serious rave rework at 100 BPM – that’s the new rave tempo, didn’t you know?! Categorize this however you want but make sure to play it on a big system – this is a speaker-rattler for sure. Cracking drums and giant synths – Willy’s back with another one! Let us know what you think and keep it locked every Wednesday for more Free Willy Wednesday tunes all throughout the month!

Free Willy Wednesdays have been extended! Due to the overwhelming response to the songs posted in January, Willy Joy and Gotta Dance Dirty are going to continue giving you a brand new exclusive tune from Willy every Wednesday through February! And the best part is, it’s all for free!

It’s the second week of February, almost Valentine’s Day, but Willy wasn’t interested in being romantic – we’re giving you his new tune “Jack Yo Body” and it’s one of the heaviest things Willy’s done in a while. Flexing his 110 BPM muscles, Willy delivers this slab of thick electro bass, bent vocals and alternately jacking and bouncing percussion. This one will go OFF on a packed floor, and Willy’s sharp mixing lets every sound rip through your speakers. Let us know what you think and keep it locked every Wednesday for more Free Willy Wednesday tunes all throughout the month!

The first week of February brings an exclusive VIP edit of “Infinity”, one of Willy’s favorite tunes off his Wildlife mixtape! Willy has been using this as a big tool to switch up the vibe at his shows, and now it’s available for you too! Infinity starts off with an old 90s sample (bonus points if you can identify it) that recalls Blade, Hackers, and other classic 90s techno rave sounds. From there, Willy flips it into a stripped down bass monster with nothing more than a kick, snare and metallic scream. When you get to the second half of the tune, however, everything starts to go haywire as tempos shift, horns blare and alarms sound. By the end this version of the song has morphed into a neck breaking beat for the funkiest dancers only. Enjoy, and keep it locked every Wednesday for more Free Willy Wednesday tunes all throughout the month! Continue Reading

After a few weeks of remixes and collaborations, this week brings a solo tune straight out of Willy‘s studio. If you’ve seen him live in the past few months you probably heard this one called “Hum“. It’s a big tune for a big room, but beyond that it’s hard to put into a box. It’s slow, low and has a lot of bass – but it also has a snaking big room melody as well as giant Hudson Mohawke-esque horn blasts. Willy borrows sounds and styles from several different genres to sew together this beast. Whatever you call it, play it loud in a crowded area!

This week brings one of the biggest dance tunes of the moment into Willy’s sights. Porter Robinson and Mat Zo‘s “Easy” gets a total makeover from the ground up. The sample sounds more wistful here, but when Willy’s remix drops, the tune turns into pure bliss. Giant waves of bass wash up against slippery synths and sharp percussion. As with Porter and Mat’s original, Willy’s remix has paid a lot of attention to detail. This sounds equally huge in a big club or in your ipod headphones. Enjoy!

This week, Willy gives you a collaboration he did with another top notch Chicago group, Team Bayside High. The song is called “Hands Up” and that’s exactly what should happen when you play it – 100% pure party tune here! The good vibes are running strong, this is one to just groove out and party your ass off to. Straightforward is sometimes the best!

To kick things off, Willy drops a massive remix of the new Chief Keef anthem “Love Sosa”. If the original version made you want to start a fight, Willy’s remix is going to make you want to start a full-fledged riot. Big room, big bass, BIG tune. The Chicago vibes are strong on this one!

Wily Joy is Back

Back with a New Format

Free Willy Wednesdays is back to a weekly format here on Gotta Dance Dirty! Every first wednesday of the month will bring a new free tune from Willy Joy himself, and for the rest of the month he will curate a selection of excellent tunes to share with you guys.

Willy’s Recommendation of the Week

This week Willy’s pick comes from the  the young princes of Jersey club music DJ Slink, DJ Rell and Nadus.

Willy says: ”There’s something about dudes who come from the bmore/philly/jersey club scene – they just know how to chop samples better and in a different way than anyone else. Here these guys take a classic Missy tune and throw it way into the future with insane chops and huge bass. I don’t always play a ton of stuff in this vein, but I’ll be playing this every set. Its just too good!”
