D. Ramirez has always been a favorite producer of mine. His style can be characterized by clean-lined production with an edgy take on House and Tech House, exemplified here in his newest EP released on Toolroom this week, Get Down. The two-track release features the title track, ‘Get Down,’ which leans to the dark-yet-bouncy Tech House taste of D. Ramirez, as well as ‘Won’t Give Up,’ which reaches into the realm of vocal, Big Room Tech. Both of these impressive tracks are featured in the new Deep Dark Vocal Tech Mix from D. Ramirez along with a slew of great Tech jams from Maceo Plex, Subb-An, Jamie Jones, and more. Preview the EP and download the mix below. Continue Reading

Amidst the chilling winds and the sporadic downpours, Insomniac Event’s Beyond Wonderland was a huge success ringing true to the dedication of the festival goers who withstood the unfortunate weather conditions to see some of the best in dance music all night long.

What’s good dirty dancers? It’s Friday, and there are few better ways to soundtrack your weekend than with this latest helping of The Dirt! Troy Kurtz & Sweet FA have been hard at work, handpicking a few of their favorite tunes of the moment, so without further ado, we’re happy to present The Dirt #48…
• Casino Times – That’s The Truth (Original Mix)
Beautiful slow-burning house from a duo to watch closely in the coming months. This is a rework of the De La Soul and Chaka Khan track ‘All Good’. Vibes!
• Mercury – Sweetness (Original Mix) √+
Giving the nod to old school house with their combination of electronic piano and soulful vocal stabs, Mercury‘s new Sweetness release is an absolute gem. Can highly recommend the full EP, which also features a stellar remix from Catz N’ Dogz.
• Groove Armada – RJ’s Theme (Original Mix) √+
Progressive tech-house from Groove Armada‘s recent Red Light project. The synth build is pretty much identical to Danny Daze‘s summer smash ‘Fall Away From Love’ which is maybe why I dig it so much.
• Jack Dixon – Clear (Original Mix)
Awesome piece of uptempo house music from Londoner Jack Dixon. The percussion on this track is so crisp. Looking forward to checking out his Knowledge EP which drops next week on Losing Suki.
Eliphino – More Than Me by somethinksounds
Set for release on Halloween via Somethinksounds, Eliphino‘s new track ‘More Than Me’ has been on repeat for the past couple weeks. The versatile London-based producer has already had a release on Gilles Peterson‘s Brownswood imprint, and he’s bound to kick up a great deal more heat with this tune when it finally drops.
The new M83 album Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming was officially released earlier this week, and it sits comfortably atop the contenders for album of the year. This track is from one of Anthony Gonzalez’s earlier albums, and might be one of my favorite songs of all time.
• ASAP Rocky – Wassup
NY drug dealer turned man rapper ASAP Rocky is the truth. He’s got a promethazine infused swagger, and it slow-grinds all over this Clams Casino beat (same guy who produced the mesmerizing I’m God.)
• Bombay Bicycle Club – Lights Out Words Gone (Dark Sky Remix)
Dark Sky is back again with an extremely emotional mix of Bombay Bicycle Club. Never one to disappoint, a hypnotically deep groove bounces around crooning vocals. Buy the track here.
If you haven’t heard, the consummate businessman that is one Sean Combs AKA genius has teamed up with Guy Gerber to form the 11:11 project. Even though it sounds a bit kooky, the likes of Jamie Jones, Soul Clap, and Renaissance Man have already been on the remix cartel.
• Solomun & Stimming – See You Everyday
I’ve been slamming this one in a lot of sets lately. I really dig the rain/thunder samples. Well played.
I’ll leave you with some witch†haus to get you in the mood for Halloween. And a birdy told me there is a /// Halloween mix dropping sooner than you can say, “OMG LOOK AT WHAT THAT GIRL IS WEARING I CAN SEE HER EVERYTHING!”
Los Angeles, I can confidently say that this Saturday marks one of the best dance music events to ever happen in this city.

With some of the biggest names in the global underground scene, Get Lost LA should be a bequest of auditory knowledge to all electronic music enthusiasts in this city. Find all necessary info below and make sure to read after the jump to see what Los Angeles’ trio, Droog, have to say about Get Lost, the Culprit label, and how Jamie Jones and Lee Foss helped them be where they’re at now.

Earlier this year, I interviewed Miami DJ & producer Danny Daze about upcoming projects, ambitions, and warehouse raves in the late 90s. At the time, I had no idea that he was about to take the house world by storm with one of the most mystifying and anticipated records of the year. During WMC this March, Hot Creations front man Jamie Jones literally took Danny’s CD that had his unmastered track ‘Your Everything’ on it, and shortly after that the buzz around the tune hit fever-pitch with the likes of Seth Troxler rinsing the hell out of it at festivals all over the world. Now, Danny is signed to Hot Creations and the record is set to drop at the end of this month with a vinyl release (digital release a week later). Here’s a mix he made to celebrate the moment: clocking in at a little over an hour, Danny features a collection of deep house gems both new and old. Perfect time-waster for your early summer doldrums.
Our buddy Orlando, also known as Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, was recently in Los Angeles a couple weeks ago shooting the music video for his new single, Trouble, slated for release on Polydor Records on June 20th. The video, directed and produced by General Assembly, features Orlando in the midst of a strange and maverick party with some interesting characters all around. Take a look and make sure to keep your eyes out on June 20th for the release including remixes from Jamie Jones, Chad Valley, and Lapalux.
