This week in the guest mix we’ve got Florida’s slamming duo SLDGHMR. Signed to Le Castle Vania’s Always Never Records, SLDGHMR brings a creative and tightly-produced fusion of banging electro and barreling techno in a way that’s all their own. Their 40 minute mix explores the world of this savage, energetic, rampaging blend with tracks from the finest artists in that spectrum like Proxy, Maelstrom, Gesaffelstein, and Boys Noize. Looks like there’s some brand new unreleased tunes from them in there as well!
You can listen to the mix on Mixcloud below and make sure you go check out SLDGHMR’s amazing Reset EP. Tracklist after the jump!

Oh boy I am very excited about the guest mix this week. One of my latest and most exciting discoveries is young French beat boy Phazz, and in this fine week of July he’s handed over an absolutely wonderful exclusive guest mix to us. Chock full of exclusives, intelligent re-works, and various unique up-and-comers, the mix explores the beat-based jambalaya of everything from jazz, R&B, and club influences and beyond. I see huge amounts of potential in Phazz, his work with vocal-pitching on remixes of Ryan Leslie and Cassie is really astounding and the direction he’s been taking as of late has a huge appeal.
You can stream and download his mix via our Soundcloud, and check out the tracklist and our interview with him after the jump. I predict big things from Phazz, really excited to see what’s next!
If you haven’t caught on by now that I hold LA-based label/collective Friends of Friends very near and dear to my heart, then you’re either slippin or just really don’t care. Well I’m just not OK with either of those. From their work with Boiler Room to cultivating the musical careers of left-field artists like LOL Boys, Groundislava, Shlohmo, Young Adults, and more, FoF have been making a well-deserved name for themselves since their beginning. The FoF-er that I bring to you today goes by the name of Epcot, who is not only part of the Friends of Friends team, but also runs Salva’s label Frite Nite. He came fresh with an exclusive guest mix for us chock full of artists who enjoy coloring outside the lines of house and techno; From Randomer to Sinden, acid to analog, Epcot keeps the vibe alive with an intelligent selection of provoking dance music.
You can stream and download his GDD Exclusive through our Soundcloud below, but be sure to check out Epcot’s and Frite Nite‘s Soundcloud as well. He’s also playing down at the Belly Up Tavern next week with a few other Frite Nite artists, details HERE.

The Mexicali/Indio duo known as Thee Cool Cats take the reigns on the GDD guest mix, dropping us an hour of G house (which if you didn’t already known stands for gangster house – a funky deep house backbone with a thugging hip hop spirit.) These dudes are on the come up and have forthcoming releases on NYC’s Nurvous Records and Amine Edge‘s new label CUFF. I’ve been supporting them since day one in my sets, and these tracks go off huge for any crowd. Listen below and get ta’ groovin.

Up for this week’s edition of the GDD Guest Mix is Kloak, a good friend of mine who with the start of 2013 announced his new musical identity and direction. Having worked in past years under the pseudonym EMU, he shed his dark and deeper dubstep disposition to take a new, housier direction. With that of course comes a new name; thus Kloak was born. Combining a steady flow of new original tracks appearing with an expanded palette for a wide and rich spectrum of house and garage influence tracks, he’s been making strides as Kloak.
You can peep his exclusive mix for us via the SoundCloud stream below, it’s a fast paced juggle of house, garage, and other derivatives of the dancier end of bass music. Tracklist is after the jump, and be sure to stay tuned here at GDD for more from Kloak… oh and in the mean time go peep his own soundcloud here.
After hearing his debut track, “FSK,” in late January, we immediately became fixated on the latest mystery producer out of the UK, Vails, and had to ask him to put together a guest mix for us that really illuminated his style and sound. Two weeks later, the guy sent back 48 minutes of electronic bliss, featuring a range of electronica aimed at the heart of sophisticated dance music enthusiasts. Vails included two of his originals in the guest mix — the aforementioned “FSK” as well as his forthcoming release on Fool’s Gold, “Beaster.” Download it below. √+
In this week’s GDD™ guest mix, we’re getting down with the dreadlocked funky disco maestro that goes by the name Cassian. Hailing from Australia, he has developed a particular style and taste that carries a sought-after carefree vibe fit for tastemaker clubs and pool parties alike. In this mix that marks the beginning of his brand new monthly series, Cassian goes deep into the groove with some exclusives as well as tracks from Amine Edge, Duke Dumont, Kolombo, and Benoit & Sergio, among others. Needless to say, it’s boogie time. Listen/download below.

This week’s guest mix comes from a producer/DJ from the UK, Tom Flynn, who has graced us with a generous offering of the finest house and techno. Earlier this week, we supported his newest release, the Work It Out EP, that has been played out by several prominent dance music artists such as the techno specialist Dubfire. Despite the successful release, Tom Flynn is back again with a more comprehensive auditory illustration that represents his great taste and keen sense of style. Have a listen to the mix and download it for safe keeping.
