As the first introduction to UK based Luxury‘s SoundCloud career, a curious record by the title of “J.A.W.S” has surfaced with the caption, “Out soon on Method Records. Produced with Disclosure.” Letting the music speak for itself, a bright synth driven record grounds the piece as the syncopated percussion adds a heavy splash of dance to the track. You hear Disclosure in the drums and Luxury certainly makes his presence known with the synth line but it will be interesting to see what the young producer can accomplish on his own.
Really loving what Cardiff duo Bodhi is up to as of late. After initially catching on to them a few weeks back for their extremely pleasant remix of Charles Murdoch, I’ve been keeping them on the radar and today they’ve given XLR8R a free download of a remix they’ve put together for SBTRKT collaborator, Sampha. It’s another wonderful House tune from the gents, adding in their lightweight synth work with Sampha’s beautiful-as-always vocals laid atop. Stream below and grab the mp3 over on XLR8R. √+
In a year that’s seen the fusion of genres like garage and house reach a fever-pitch, UK bass producer Hostage has been at the forefront of the sound. He’s giving away a pumping, low-end monster in the form of Nowhere to Hide. With a thick, bubbling bass and jacking drums, this tune could fit nicely in many an arsenal.
Main Course maestro, Astronomar, just sent over the latest offering from his newly launched label last night — a 2-track EP from Italian producer His Majesty Andre who is showcasing a new style and sound via this release. The A-side “Sunshine” features the beautiful vocals of GDD™ favorite Anna Lunoe, and don’t be confused by the song title as HMA and Anna have brought “Sunshine” into a dark place with deep bass and filters ready for the club. “Moonlight” serves as the flip side of the release, and once again His Majesty Andre goes with a deep, jacking bassline that rolls it’s way through the track. Main Course has said that this is their best release so far, and I wouldn’t disagree with that claim whatsoever. Pick it up on Beatport.
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.
Wankelmut is a subtle star. It’s not common for DJs who sell over 1.3 million copies for an official remix on Sony and garner 100 million plays on YouTube to be “behind the scenes” so to speak, but it appears that Berlin-based Wankelmut doesn’t need a Billboard cover or a headline festival slot to keep doing what he loves. Back in January, Wankelmut released “My Head Is A Jungle” featuring Emma Louise, which was championed by Pete Tong and Annie Mac vigorously on BBC Radio 1 in addition to strong DJ support around the world. 8 months later, the big tune will be seeing a re-release on Positiva, featuring the original accompanied by 6 mixes including remixes from MK, Friend Within, Gui Boratto, Solee, and Kasper Bjorke as well as an extended Vocal Mix from the original producer. The EP will be released on September 15th, but until then, stream the MK remix as well as the original below.

Apologies for the hiatus, friends. Last week that evil siren Vegas clutched the GDD™ crew tightly in her grasp and forbade us from blessing your ears with that week’s dosage of The Dirt. Alas, here we go, with ten tracks curated by our own Troy Kurtz & Burn Unit, fresh off two killer sets aboard the GDD™ Presents: Wide Awake Art Car Stage at Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas. Get it into you.
