It’s been a journey. Since its inception in the summer of 2010, our longest lasting weekly feature, The Dirt, has brought a staggering amount of free music to the masses, and we’re proud to still be here 100 editions and 100 Dirt Babes in the books. It’s a tough feat to get these tracks together each week (probably why we have some gaps in the mix here and there, apologies), but it’s been an amazing experience sharing music with all of you, which, of course, is the main reason why we’re here.
We wanted to put together something special for the centennial episode, so 11 of our writers have included 2 songs each — one from one of the 99 past Dirts that we’ve posted and any other song that we felt was exceptional enough to make the cut of such an outstanding post. We hope you enjoy these as much as we enjoyed putting them together. Here’s to another 100. Continue Reading

Ninety-nine. We’re one Dirt away from that magical century mark. But before we get there, The Dirt #99 is what’s happening NOW. It’s the latest killer tracks all in one place: a Jesse Rose remix of Duke Dumont’s “The Giver” (with female vocals!), The Chromatics covering New Order, a MASSIVE Italo/French House remix of Estelle’s classic “American Boy”, a new GLOVES remix, a new Monarchy track, that Disclosure remix of Artful Dodger (the exclamation point on a stellar year for the Disclosure boys) and more. Peep the tunes below + grab that hot (FREE) ten pack of tracks! And don’t forget your 99 Red Balloons on the way out…
The Dirt #99:
Few cool releases from a wide range of talented producers from all over the world out this week and what better way to be my eclectic bad self than slap them all into one post.

Either way, keep that booty shaking and those feet tapping. All EPs with streams and buy links (along with a bonus download) after the jump…
It’s been an incredible year for Oliver $. ‘Doin’ Ya Thang’ set records across the board, with the titles of ‘#1 Downloaded Song on Beatport,’ ‘#1 Most Charted Track of All Time,’ and ‘Mixmag’s Top 10 Track of 2011′ under its belt. 2012 also seems to be off to a great start for Oliver $ and his Play It Down labelmate, Jesse Rose, as they’ve set off on a 3-month global tour featuring extended back-to-back sets from the two. In celebration of the Sample Pleasures tour, the lads have been kind enough to give away two collaborative tracks as well as a wicked new mix. Grab everything below. Continue Reading
It was a delight this morning to open my inbox to find news about Zombie Disco Squad‘s debut album, Brains, due out on Jesse Rose‘s Made To Play imprint on the 28th of May. The first single from the full length features the soulful vocals of 80s legend, Omar, and stays true to the Housey sound that ZDS has always produced. As an added bonus to the album release, label boss Jesse Rose will be procuring an edit to each and every single off of the album. What a guy right? Get the preview for the single, ‘Righteous Sound,’ below, and buy it on Beatport when it’s released on Monday, March 19th. Continue Reading

I can’t believe the weekend is here again already! As always, CONTROL is set with a stacked double-headliner night tomorrow with Kill The Noise and Jesse Rose each throwing down an hour and a half set. After seeing the live interview that the Avalon did with Kill The Noise on Twitter yesterday, I’m pretty excited to hear some brand new heat from the Los Angeles producer. And of course, it’s always a pleasure to hear some Made To Play jams from the legendary Jesse Rose.
