It’s exactly the sultry psychedelic boogie that’s been missing from your life. As All We Are preps for their debut album to hit stores early in November, the Liverpol trio shares a single from the record that can be downloaded by pre-ordering their Freshmen LP on iTunes. It brings an air of cool from first strum that inhabits your inner rhythm until you’re one with the dance floor and ready to get lost. Enjoy!
Australia’s RÜFÜS have released a preview for the first single off their upcoming debut record, ATLAS, packed with all the essential down under vibes that have boosted their name into the dance music scene. If this jazzy driving dance tune is any indication as to what the finished album will sound like, the sounds of summer will be bottled up perfectly in 11 track fashion. For those who want more than just the anticipatory snippet, “Sundream” is available in it’s entirety for those who pre-order their freshmen LP on iTunes although the U.S. store does not currently carry the project yet.
Our favorite lost boy alien (babe) PennyBirdRabbit has just released her follow up SAFER EP and we are so happy to hear the new funky house vibe. Penny is infamous for her angelic vocals lent to the sounds of powerhouses Skrillex and The M Machine, but the energy and soul reflected in her own production is amplified with every track included in this EP – fans of Disclosure and Bondax will love the vibes on these (Our fav is RUN – see video below)… Get your hands on Penny’s SAFER EP!
Back again are the Bingo Players with the latest installment of their Hysteria Radio. This months mix currently holds the #8 spot on the iTunes overall music podcast chart and is packed with some hugeee hits like “Pogo,” by Laidback Luke, the ballin’ Tom Staar and Kryder remix of Depeche Mode’s “Enjoy The The Silence” and “Grid” by Bassjackers and Dyro…definitely a few tunes to get you ready for festival season!! And if you’re in New York, I hope you snagged tickets to the Bingo Players’ show Friday at Webster Hall, it’s sure to be epic. Tracklist after the jump!
Sinden has just released his latest single, ‘Keep It 1000,’ this week on his own imprint, Grizzly, and yesterday we saw Fader give out the drum-heavy Techno remix from Night Slugs‘ L-Vis 1990. The first time I listened to it, a sudden sense of anxiety came over me — not positive whether it was a good or bad thing. The constant beat made we wonder if L-Vis called this one a “Construction Remix” because he had a renovation team breaking the walls down in the studio next to him. Personally, I’m a bigger fan of the Duke Dumont remix on this release, but this is still a good one to add to the library nonetheless. Download it below and pick up the 3-track EP on iTunes.

All 4 remixes go their own ways, taking ‘Wonky’ to multiple spheres of Dance music. Stream the whole EP after the jump and pick it up on iTunes. Continue Reading
GDD™ fav, Felix Cartal, will be releasing his sophomore album, Different Faces, on Dim Mak Records next Tuesday, March 27th, and today we are able to exclusively premiere the heaviest, rawest song from the LP, ‘Triple Deke.’ This track brings me back to the first thuds that I heard from FC back in 2007/2008 — the winding breakdowns and dancefloor smashing hooks are signature Felix Cartal. Here’s what he had to say about it:
“Possibly the heaviest track on the record, also the most effective on the dance floor. One of the few songs on the record that touches on my roots of making very aggressive, almost punk rock energy in dance music. I named it Triple Deke to allude to my past, a hockey reference, a big part of my life when I was younger, the same way this heavy music was important to me when I was younger as well.”Continue Reading

On Sunday we were treated to a fantastic gig from Moby as London’s month long iTunes Festival drew to a close. Camden’s Roundhouse was packed to the rafters with special guests and competition winners being treated to a really intimate show that lasted almost 2 hours. Moby ripped through a set that included hits ‘Natural Blues’, ‘Why Does My Heart Feel So Bad?’, ‘Honey’, and the mighty ‘Porcelain’, while also showcasing a handful tracks from his new Destroyed record such as ‘Be The One’, ‘Sevastopol’, and ‘Lie Down In Darkness’. If you haven’t already heard Destroyed, I think it’s his most impressive work since 2002’s 18 album and one of the best records I’ve heard this year.
Sunday proved not only that Moby’s one of the most prolific songwriters and electronic producers of our age, but also that unlike so many musicians, his live shows are even more monumental than his studio work – His band were really tight, and the female vocalist who joined him had a sensational voice. Overall a great gig to be at, and you can stream the whole thing for free from iTunes here.
Special thanks to the guys at Isklar for having us along.
