“I want you to all smell a dubplate because they smell really good. You might never get to smell one ever again…”
Vivian Host, aka Star Eyes hands me a dusty disc, an old DnB record from Renegade Hardware. I smell it and have to admit, it smells perfect. Like old musty books but better, because it’s music. On the bed sits Jess Gentile, better known as Jubilee. We’re chillin’ in the infamous 181 spot in Brooklyn, Vivian’s current residence, while our lovely photographer, Kaitlin Parry of Shoot People, sets up for this Gotta Dance Dirty exclusive look into the lives and music of two of the best bass DJs and producers around.

Tonight, things are leaned out, grimey and late night. We’ve scoured the sonic landscape for these picks that have been taking us over the edge and into the abyss lately. Embrace your inner afterparty weirdo. Go deep. Get ‘em into you.
World-renowned turntable impresario, Klever, has put this infectiously feel-good summer anthem out on Main Course Media as their second release. You know that point in the night when it gets late and everyone is loose in the zone, when dancing gives way to a mass of bouncing and swaying? My favorite part of the night as well. Grab the free download after the jump. Discobelle just premiered Rinse FM’s Roska on the flip, which you can grab here as well, in all its signature future-bassy, grime-clappy goodness.
