This week’s guest mix comes courtesy of the Oakland resident and bass music maestro, Gladkill. After seeing him kick off his Summer festival season as a headliner for the sold-out Lucidity Festival, I was certain that we needed to feature him. If you’re not already familiar with Gladkill, he has built a name around his soulful brand of melodic dubstep that provides for an emotive, down-to-earth vibe. He launches his brand new mix series, “Sessions,” that serves to showcase some of his new original music while exploring sonic and spacial territories.

In the midst of this guest mix and his recent performances, he has been deep in the studio gearing up for a stacked schedule of more live dates and festivals including Lightning in a Bottle, Shambhala, Bounce Festival and Enchanted Forest, among others. Enjoy this mix, and keep an eye out for future installments of his mix series, as well as a new release due out in Fall 2013.

After hearing Andrea‘s consistently stunning tracks, and watching his all too brief Life is a Banana live set, I was inclined to feature him on a GDD™ Guest Mix. As a producer/DJ from France, he doesn’t quite fit the general style that typically comes to be associated with the European country. Andrea has a keen sense of the bass-driven underground as he tends to gravitate towards a soulful, downtempo sound with lush atmospheres and a hint of hip-hop influence. His excellent 30 minute mix exhibits his distinctive taste and strong vibes that will keep you coming back for more.

One of Brooklyn’s finest up and coming producer/DJs, Sleepyhead, is building his name around a refined deep house style that exudes a reminiscent old school vibe. In addition to his strongly emotional Endless Island EP out on Symbols Recordings, he has created a number of other forward-thinking tracks that only serve to strengthen his distinctive brand of dance music. Enjoy an hour of Sleepyhead’s groovy, hand-picked selections that maintain his inimitable style. Catch him live tonight in New York at Broke City 28!

Our friend and fellow New York native dBerrie has been making some big moves lately with his recent spot on the massive Generation Wild tour alongside Deniz Koyu, Danny Avila and Mikael Weermets as well as with his forthcoming release “Zenith” on Flamingo Recordings, supported by the likes of David Guetta and Fedde Le Grand. So it was natural to assume that he would eventually make an appearance with a guest mix, and he definitely didn’t disappoint! Featuring hot tracks like Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike’s “Wakanda,” Zedd’s “Stache,” Sidney Samson’s “Torrent” and several of his own originals and edits, this mix is absolutely worth the listen.

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.

Kicking off our guest mix series in 2013, we have the pleasure of hosting a GDD™ favorite, Ardalan, who currently resides in the beautiful city of San Francisco. With numerous floor filler tracks out on prominent labels such as dirtybird, he has consistently shown his prowess and raw artistic ability in the studio. Ardalan’s musical talent certainly carries over when he’s behind the decks, and this guest mix (recorded live) showcases his impressive DJ capabilities and exquisite taste for booty shakin’ beats.
