This hot season is winding down but that doesn’t mean the music is cooling off at all… Our aussie friends Yolanda Be Cool have given us the exclusive premiere on their version of Indian Summer’s pumping track “Grand Rapids”, off their recent release Foreign Formula on Sweat It Out! music. The YBC duo loved the original so much they wanted to ‘Rechunk’ that would fit perfect into club sets… DJs don’t sleep on this one!
Following their chart-topping collaborative EP release Careless, the infamous slime of duo Jack Beats has teamed up with label collective OWSLA once again with an evolved sound (that we’re really happy to hear). Off their forthcoming EP Somebody To Love, their first single off the release “Just A Beat” is a deeper and minimally executed (almost garage-like) production that still rings true to the signature Jack Beats sound we’ve all grown to salivate over.

The Toronto trap trio, Keys N Krates, seem to always out do themselves remix after remix. Their latest effort is this excellent remix of Adventure Club, and of course they deliver a huge tune that takes their blend of styles into a fresh direction. As per usual, just about everything is on point and well done, from the drums to synths and everything in between. Hear how Keys N Krates are continuing to innovate and grab the free download below.

If you have been festival bound this summer then chances are you’ve seen our boys Dada Life destroying stages with the high energy DJ sets they’re known for. They have been on a massive US tour for the past few months and haven’t stopped for anything (example: they literally played 4 different gigs in 3 cities in 24 hours). One of the best things about seeing the Dada live is the surprises they always have in their infamous bootlegs, the GUERILLA FART series. Now, if you’ve done your homework and have paid attention to the new tunes they’ve been dropping in their sets, you would notice some new versions they’ve beefed up and squeezed out (Sausage Fattener, anyone?) with that infamous Dada noise. Today, they’ve given us the exclusive release of their newest ‘Guerilla Fart #12,’ a festival bootleg of Laidback Luke & Steve Aoki’s ‘Turbulence’ smashed with the silly classic Rednex anthem ‘Cotton-Eyed Joe.’ This has been a huge party break track in their sets and went off huge at this year’s Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas. Enjoy it now for your own sets or just for that party playlist!

Easy Dirty Dancers, this week we’ve got an exclusive new tune from recent GDD intervieweeD.O.D. The track’s a bootleg of Duck Sauce‘s new single ‘Big Bad Wolf’, which sees Dan O’Donnell taking the original apart, to bring in ravey Dominator synthlines and a moombahton backbeat. The tune’s a banger for sure, and with a drop-tempo 45 seconds in it’s perhaps the most DJ friendly moombahton track you’ll find…
Last month we teamed up with Louis La Roche to premiere his innovative new mixtape project entitled Scenery. The mixtape, which incorporates a wide range of production ideas he’s worked on, is to be delivered in three parts on the first of each month between May and July – So today being June 1st, we are able to unveil part 2.
Chatting with GDD™ in April, Louis La Roche told us: “there will be no tracklisting, the idea is that Scenery’s a listening experience of short songs that create a journey for the listener. This is a free project, released digitally by myself, and each part will come with individual artwork.”
