It only takes hours before the newest popular single gets bombarded with bootleg remixes and spreads like wild fire across the blogosphere. The unique recreations however, are always worth the wait. Our friend and GDD familiar Craig Williams had something to prove towards Tyga’s “Rack City” – fashioning a club worthy ghetto-tech spin on the popularized hip-hop anthem.
The end product is pure gold, straying away from overdone bootleg formula and creating his own monster. We’ve teamed up with Craig Williams to give it away for FREE, so grab it below and let the system crank.

After a massive response from their hard-hitting bootleg of Funky Vodka, the rising duo NO BODY have answered back quickly with 2 remix versions for Wolfgang Gartner‘s newest single ‘Redline.’ The deluxe version features a certain anthemic vocal for those big room lovers, while the instrumental mix focuses on piping electro lead (similar to Nicky Romero’s ‘Toulouse’) that does justice to the cheesy chords of the original. Once again, NO BODY takes things to a higher and heavier level. Grab them both below, and decide which is your fav!
Dirty Dancers! With the recent release of Dim Mak‘s New Noise Vol. 2, we have been proud to promote many of our friends on the compilation, and encourage you to support the young talent that are making serious waves. BUT – today we are giving you guys an exclusive giveaway from one of the biggest artists on the album. The German heavyweight Tocadisco offers up his take on New Noise Vol. 2 with “Jump,” a bouncey club techno tune that screams for big room delivery. Grab the tune below, and make sure to check out the rest of the Dim Mak compilation, available now on beatport and itunes.
We have the pleasure of premiering a remix and video from the Los Angeles trio, Religion. They were brought on to put their innovative, raw energy to the Gosteffects tune “House Of God.” The pumping track provides for a type of anarchist vibe, similar to The Bloody Beetroots, and with the political video, it is a perfect match. In addition to this, I recommend checking out some of Religion‘s other tracks on their Soundcloud for great listening material. Enjoy.
Still riding the recent chart-topping success of ‘One Love’, TJR delivers again with another massive re-creation of the hip-hop anthem ‘California Love.’ The track was officially released today on Pop Rox Muzik, an LA/NY label known for their big room electro house cross-over sound. California Love was recently debuted on BBC Radio 1 by Dirty Dutch kingpin Chuckie, and has already gained massive support from Fatboy Slim, Chris Lake, Mightyfools, and Loose Cannons. Think you’re excited about it already? In celebration of the release, we have teamed up with Pop Rox and TJR to give you 2 versions of the track exclusively on GDD – for FREE.
On Saturday, Smirnoff’s hotly anticipated Sensation event rolled into London for an unparalleled night of mischief in white. The setup – which drew together 22 fountains, 13 laser systems, 100 different pyrotechnic effects and 16 6-meter wide jellyfish – was like nothing we’ve ever seen. Following on from last week’s chat with the man behind it all, creative director Duncan Stutterheim, one thing he said resonated with me: “the show is close to perfection”. I’ll be the first to admit that the statement sounded a little arrogant initially, but after experiencing Saturday, I find myself in agreement.
The show was beautifully executed, and no expense was spared as the London crowd piled into the O2 Arena to be treated to a spectacle that incorporated performance art, installations, new technologies, and music from some of the world’s finest DJs. The DJs performed from a rotating booth in the centre of the dance floor, while legions of clubbers hailed them like gods dressed head to toe in white. This was a clubbing experience like no other.
The most enjoyable set on the night came from Joris Voorn and Nic Fanciulli, who really set the standard with some awesome techno and house, before Fedde Le Grand and Martin Solveig took the party to the next level with some huge big-room anthems. All DJs were really well received, but the night was less about the music than it was about the experience and overall staging of the event which was a total sensory overload. We had a great time, and would like to thank the Smirnoff team for their awesome hospitality.
On a night out, it’s always nice to hear praise for the work we do here at Gotta Dance Dirty, and when that praise comes from a world renowned DJ it’s even more flattering and lets us know that we must be doing something right. Getting kudos for our blog from Martin Solveig was a surreal highlight on Saturday night when we caught up with him before his headline set. You can read our exclusive interview with him after the jump… Continue Reading
