As Summer comes to a close, we can only look forward to the chilling air to fill our lungs at HARD Day Of The Dead as the Halloween season approaches. The second installment of HARD’s DOTD mixtape series comes from one of our personal favorites: Amine Edge & DANCE. The French G-house globe trotters have been infecting the scene with their gritty funk and thumping bass that make up the sound they truely can call their own. This mix is comprised of all their own originals and remixes, a true showcase of what’s to come at the festival. Dig into this one and get your funky costume ideas flowing…

The dust hasn’t even settled and neither has any of our excitement from the HARD Summer Music Festival… with so many incredible sets that made it conflicting to catch everything planned, the Redbull Music Academy Radio did us all a solid and recorded most of the top sets from the weekend. We’re sure more are going to surface this week, but for you thirsty folk out there we got a pretty good first batch for you to froth over and get through the week. Enjoy!
Listen to sets from Disclosure, Duke Dumont, Empire Of The Sun, Flosstradamus, Nick Thayer, Clockwork, Breach, Busy P, Flux Pavilion, Tommy Trash, Green Lantern, 2 Chainz, and Destructo (after the jump) Continue Reading
This mix is fly. Fans of Disclosure, Breach, and all things that pop to bassy, sexy house music should dig this mix by the duo consisting of Foamo and RackNRuin. Right after you catch our very own BONES on the HARD Stage, stay put and see Gorgon City perform on the same stage right after at HARD Summer 2013 on Sunday, August 4.
The clouds have finally broken as HARD maestro Destructo has finally dropped his much anticipated HIGHER EP today, being released on both OWSLA and Boysnoize Records (and making for one hell of a debut). CO-produced with U-Tern, The EP single features a special extended mix, along with 2 monstrous remixes from Tommy Trash and Brodinski, both flexing their styles respectively onto the already anthemic original. The package also includes the B side “2112″, which highlights Destructo’s obsession with technology and futuristic sounds as the bouncing bass ebbs and flows from beginning to end.
Listen below, and make sure to pick up the EP today on Beatport!
It’s time for the weekend – and what better way to kick it off with a special HARD edition of The Dirt, bringing you (15) tracks to pump all the way through. We welcome the HARD bossman Destructo to the selection, along with his #2, mister D BELL himself and our very own BONES. Some of these you can download (where you see the DL link given), but some you just have to listen and wait because they’re either too good to be FREE or their quite frankily not even out yet. All in all, gems abound. Dig in, my weekend warriors.
