JFK (of MSTRKRFT) is back on the piano keys to bring you another melodic anthem in “Radar” – but with the help of Autoerotique, it’s become a monster. Expect to hear this one shredding across festival sound systems all summer long.
*Look out for Autoerotique’s new single “Asphyxiation” coming out on May 28th on Dim Mak Records. Watch this teaser (a REAL teaser for sure)…
Coming off the massive release ‘Pari’ with Bart B More, the newly LA-settled Harvard Bass wastes no time in dropping a huge new EP teaser on us to start the weekend. The PLEX EP is forthcoming on Teenage Riot Records (headed by JFK of MSTRKRFT), and features the new original along with three incredibly eclectic versions provided by Ego Troopers, St. Mandrew and John Roman. Ringing true to his sound, the EP title track ‘Plex’ is a whirlwind of techno, driven by HB’s signature buzzing leads and stabbing kicks. The remixes, however, make it ‘something for everyone’ – from Ego Troopers’ dutch house, the chainsaw electro of St. Mandrew and the deeper bass and staggering tribal sounds of John Roman. Check it out below, and grab it on July 31st.
To celebrate this week’s release of Autoerotique‘s EKG EP, Dim Mak Records is giving away the special JFK (of MSTRKRFT) Edit of the massive single ‘Roll The Drums.’ Cutting down the melodic breakdown and relieving the vocals from Marissa Jack, JFK sends this one into rave mode focusing on the enormous drum lines, epic build ups and synth leads. Listen and grab it below for FREE!

Man this week is stacked with events and giveaways, but I don’t think there is such a thing as giving too much good stuff away, so GDD™ will be giving 5 (yes 5!) pairs of tickets away for Into The AM this Saturday at The Grove of Anaheim with JFK, Harvard Bass, and Bird Peterson. To enter to win, please head on over to our FACEBOOK PAGE and write down your social security number on our wall. Just kidding don’t do that…how about the first dance music song/artist that broke you open into the world of electronic music. Winners will be announced tomorrow afternoon. Fire away!
The giveaways continue here at Gotta Dance Dirty™ as we gear up for a month packed with events. This Thursday night in San Francisco, catch a DJ set from the notorious Jesse F. Keeler of Death From Above 1979 and MSTRKRFT fame at Mighty with support from homies Nisus and Shane King. You might want to grab your tickets before this one sells out, but if you’re feeling lucky, check out our giveaway over on our facebook page. Stay tuned for more giveaways for The Twelves, Dada Life, Bart B More, and more!
JFK remixes JFK! Some long-time readers might be turning your noses at me for posting this obvious classic, but newer readers need to know what’s up. Believe me when I say every time the DJ dropped this disco ****jam back in the day (and by ‘the day’ I mean 2005), things would start getting X-rated on the dancefloor. Still one of my favorite songs ever.
If I was obligated to do a one-word-festival-preview this would just say “INSANITY,” but fortunately for you I get to give you the real dirty dirt on what’s going down at the NOS Events Center this Saturday. Compliments of the crew over at Insomniac, this weekend’s 16th annual Nocturnal Festival is not to be missed.Even though it’s a bit off the beaten path out in San Bernardino, I for one totally love the set-up and location, and apparently so do about 40,000 others every September. The stages are set up in massive hangars, spacious tents, and something zuuper special and unique for the massive trance arena trucked in all the way from NYC.
On the grounds there is plenty of space to roam and explore and a wicked water feature that GDD™ does not condone swimming in! In addition to the top of the line production that has always been synonymous with Insomniac events, this year delivers top of the line talent across the entire spectrum of electronic music. From Steve Angello to Ferry Corsten, from JFK to ATB, to a CAN’T MISS set by Noisia, all the way to a Caspa, Benga, Skream trifecta taking place in the Sunken Garden, each stage is rife with opportunities for you to get your dirty little jig on. To get you psyched for the festival I got five essential performances for you to witness, and five crackin’ tunes to jack you up on the ride to the Events Center.
Gotta give it up for Olle and Stefan. Does anyone know how to get the party started harder than these guys? You always know what you’re gonna get when you do the Dada … HOT FIRE!
The Masters of the Breaks. Their set at Coachella two years ago was out of control. Or maybe I was out of control? Whatever. Don’t miss it.
As mentioned above this trio is a must-see. Everyone who is anyone in DnB will tell you these guys are simply an elite, top notch talent. If you’re really not in to DnB, then allow them to be your introduction. If you haven’t heard their essential mix, then go hear it.
4. Steve Angello
Seen him both by himself, and as 1/3 of the Swedish House Supergang at EDC, and I think it’s safe to say he always brings the house down. Feel good tunes are guaranteed.
5. Ferry Corsten
Ferry’s set at Together As One three years ago will forever hold a special place in my heart. The man just knows how to play trance with some real energy to it. Throw in a stage/arena nearly 60ft tall with a 100,000 sq ft dancefloor + the chance to hear ‘Beautiful‘ on a proper system = something you don’t want to miss.
The Sunken Garden stage potentially going Plastician > Skream > Benga > Caspa back to back to back to back? Bassheads, make sure you take a five minute water break at least once.
This Friday the long awaited arrival of Monsieur Oizo to CONTROL will finally be satiated. The show needs no hyping on my part because as you know this Frenchman is a present day musical mastermind and a massive name behind the Ed Banger label. He doesn’t cruise through here on a very consistent basis, so I highly recommend going on Friday just to get lost in the majesty of his brilliant performance. The House Party room will also be packed full of some of our favorite friends/DJs including DJ Winner (SF), aRod (SB), Hammerwolf, and of course ///BONES, so come on out and have a fun Friday with all of us.
Be sure to RSVP at JONAHDANCESDIRTY@GMAIL.COM to make sure you are on the GDD guestlist for discount tickets (10$). Also, try to arrive early this week as there will be an extremely packed house for Mr. O.
And now for the goods. I picked out a few remixes of the master that I thought you might enjoy…
