As we roll right into Ultra music week, GDD can’t be more excited to be back at it in Miami teaming up with our brethren Overthrow to help bring you one of the first and best events going down. The Windish Agency is spreading their wings to showcase some of their brightest, newest talent in the IVORY TOWER @ 1111 Lincoln.
Ivory Tower presents a dynamic event featuring the cutting edge in music, art, fashion, and lifestyle in a world renowned architectural wonder. Designed by world famous architects Herzog and de Meuron, the 1111 Lincoln is one of the finest buildings in the city. With open air panoramic views, the building creates the sensation you are floating above the landscape and has to be experienced to be believed. The event will also present The global art collective Primary Flight, A-Morir by Kerin Rose (designer behind Lady Gaga and Rihanna’s shades), and Sole Bicycles.
Mako Records – The Proxy‘s label out of Russia, is dropping some serious noise right now. Their newest EP ‘Mad Soldier Take A Rifle’ by The Mould is a huge example of why you shouldn’t mess with Russia. Check out two of the tracks on the EP below, including a Volatile Remix that’s so frightening I don’t know when I could ever play it. That’s up to you dirty DJs out there.
Moving on, we also have half of the new EP ‘Drag On/And Then’ from Urchins. If you didn’t know, Urchins is also a part of the infamous PalmsOutSounds blog, and hail from the UK, along with the culprit responsible for the murderous remix of ‘Drag On’ on the EP– High Rankin.
Now that everyone is finally recovering from Hard and this week has finally set into full speed I have some new tracks for all you kids to hear. Definitely a complete range of sounds for all of you out there. Going from some dubstep to disco to the classic electro banger sound to some fresh dutch house from one of the worlds top producers. Today’s post really has a little bit of it all.
•Yolanda Be Cool & Dcup- We No Speak Americano (High Rankin’s Bait Wobble Remix) “Bored of a morning i decided to ask Twitter what i should do a cheeky bootleg of to give away for chuckles. Turns out they wanted a mix of No Speak Americano so i only went and bloody did one. Some people didnt quite get the joke but as i do so like to say, fuck um if they can’t take a joke. Here it is, enjoy “— straight from High Rankin’s twitter. Resulting remix actually is good. First and only dubstep mix I have heard of this song and I like it. •Congorock-Babylon (Fare Soldi – Babbylorso Remix)*thanks to our friends @ Deathelectro Nice disco twist to one of the biggest songs of the year. Fare Soldi is one of my favorite italian production duo’s out there. Definitely check out more of their stuff on their myspace if you have not already. Also deathelectro has an interview with them up now, go check that as well!

High Rankin and Evolve or Die, we featured last week with their recent Gramophonedzie remix. This week the two have teamed up again and dropped a heavier dubstep edit of Delerium‘s trance classic ‘Silence’. For enormous nostalgia value if nothing else, you need to hear this track:
The record sees Azlan team up with his buddies The Others, Rusko and Markomen, who have produced some vibin’ mellow dubs for Azlan to spit over. Starkey‘s remix of ‘Jah Live’ is filled with glitchy synths and distorted basslines; replacing the roots dub feel of the Rusko produced original mix. Meanwhile, Unitz take the keys of original ‘Selektah!’ (produced by The Others) up to a major key – If the original was made for smoking zoots in underground clubs, the Unitz track takes things above ground for some beach blazin’. Check it:
One guy I’ve been paying a lot of attention to lately is Audio Phreaks artist Bar 9, from the UK. His dubs have been kicking up a lot of heat lately and his sets are annihilation on a small scale. Example‘s ‘Kickstarts’ EP is set to drop at the beginning of June, featuring remixes from the expected dutch house crowd, but this for me, is the reason you’ll want to purchase the EP on Beatport – it blows the other tracks out of the water. Bar 9 is definitely one to be keeping an eye out for in 2010, so watch this space.
One of the latest signings to the Trouble & Bass label, The Boogaloo Crew have been putting out some big tracks recently. Their remix of DRT‘s ‘Rising Sun’ was what put me onto them at the end of 2009, and this new bootleg of Jose Gonzalez ‘Crosses’ is pretty dank. From the UK, these boys have an awesome work ethic, also playing out as side-project Dark Sky, which has recently been picked up by the Bristol based Black Acre label. Dark Sky produce some sick UK Garage, keep your eyes and ears peeled for their remix of The xx ‘Crystalised’, a blitz track that’s due to drop sometime soon.
From one Trouble & Bass artist to another, AC Slater‘s just been remixed by Doorly, who GDDfeatured a few weeks ago. Just when I was confidently bigging up his move from dubstep to more of a funky sound, he goes and puts out another electro-dub track. Not sure what to make of this effort though, I dropped it last night into Doctor P‘s ‘Sweet Shop'; not a fan of the spin-backs, they kind of do my nut in, but take those guys out and you’ve got a pretty clean track.
Big ups toPalms Out Sounds for this next one, I picked it out of their Remix Sunday zipper last week and meant to post it sooner. Jazz and soul into dubstep; full marks for innovation. With dubs raining out of all genres, I was pretty surprised this hadn’t been done to death yet. High Rankin, a sickeningly good dubstep producer from Brighton, UK has teamed up again with Evolve or Die to produce a huge tune.
I’d describe this one as Baltimore House-step. Buying into the insanity of Gorillaz‘s nonsensical new single featuring De La Soul; Toddla slams out a melee of club house, wonky bass and the well know Lyn Collins B’more sample. Well worth a look.
