When this show was first announced I couldn’t believe it. Jamie XX — the musical prodigy illustrious for his percussive talent in UK Platinum band The XX as well as his solo work remixing the likes of Gil Scott-Heron, Florence + The Machine, and Adele — is coming to Hollywood to throw down a DJ set atop the roof of The W Hotel at Drai’s. But wait, it gets better. Joining Jamie in the black Red Bull booth will be another GDD™ long-time favorite, Jacques Greene, the soulful and extremely talented producer out of Montreal. If you trust anything we’ve ever told you here on GDD™, listen to me now. Check out this show and we promise you will not regret it.
Tre +Korbz put together a playlist to help you in your wars against sobriety and dehydration on this long 4th of July weekend . Tre’s tracks are full of deep, funky, and undeniably groovy vibes that will keep you going late into the night, while Korbz’s tracks are perfect for late mornings, dark sunglasses, and spiked coffee.
Good morning! After the black out on Wednesday, the GDD™ Morning Update is back in full effect with a wealth of great content for your viewing pleasure. There is too much for me to list out, so please read on after the jump for the full stories, videos, and music.

The three-track, vinyl only release, features an edit and 2 Daphni originals, and it’s the B-side ‘Yes, I Know’ that really stands out – a ballsy slowburner that combines acid with soul:
