Joachim Garraud has definitely made his presence known in the US this year, with festival appearances at Ultra, EDC, and Spring Awakening. Along with these performances came his Space Invader takeover — complete with alien masks, wild live visuals, and, of course, the keytar. Joachim’s US invasion continues this summer as his next single, “I’m Invaded,” will see its digital release on Monday on Believe. The French producer will also be moving to LA this weekend, so I’m sure we’ll all be seeing a bit more of the Space Invader in coming months. Check out the hilarious new music video first here.

Joachim Garraud & Alesia‘s ‘Nox’ is the upcoming second single from their Hillside West EP due out on Dim Mak Records in April. The sound of ‘Nox’ is unlike anything Joachim has ever released before — tying in lighthearted piano riffs at the beginning of the track with monstrous, snarling Dubstep elements that pushed me back in my chair a bit. In coincidence with the release of ‘Nox’ on Beatport on April 24th, a remix competition has been announced with some epic prizes from Pioneer, Serato, WeSC, and more.

Read on for rules, prizes, and stem downloads! Continue Reading

Today marks the exclusive Beatport release of the first single, ‘Hook,’ from Joachim Garraud & Alesia‘s new collaborative EP, Hillside West, due out on Dim Mak next month. Teaming up with the fresh new French trio, Alesia, has proven to be a great influence on this new single from Joachim. Utilizing his mastery of Electro and Techno, Joachim also developed new Progressive and Dubstep influences into Hillside West, and the anthemic synths married with grungy, almost Skrillex-esque womps deliver a side of Joachim’s production that has never been heard before. With support already in from Axwell, Bingo Players, Angger Dimas and more, I’m sure that we’ll be hearing this a fair amount during festival season. Pick up ‘Hook’ on Beatport today and click on after the jump for the preview. Continue Reading

Joachim Garraud – Everybody In The Place (AutoErotique Remix) by Electric Zoo Festival

The Dirt is back in action again this week with submissions from the first 2 members of Gotta Dance Dirty, jonahberry and Tropicool (aka Dr. Schlongo, aka Daddy O’Climax, aka David LaMelza). We’ve put together 10 great tracks, new and old, for your listening pleasure, so kick back, relax, and enjoy these tasty tunes with a tall frosty IPA in one hand and a naughty school girl in the other.

DARK GROOVES
• Donovans – FX1 (Canblaster & Panteros666 Remix) √+
Parisian duo, Donovans, released their FX1 EP in early June on Cheap Thrills, equipped with a fantastic remix from Rynecologist and this one from Canblaster and Panteros666. I just can’t get enough of the unique sound of Canblaster. Make sure to pick up his Totem EP out on Marble now.

SEXY GROOVES
• Brenmar – Taking It Down (Original Mix) [Beatport] √++
Now this track was released at the end of last year, but its inclusion in ///BONES’ most recent Summer Mix has invoked a revival of this song for me. Brenmar is also one of my top producers, as his sound meshes the aggressiveness of hip hop with the smooth sensibilities of great House music. Big fan.

BANGING TECHNO
• Joachim Garraud – Bang Bang (Dalcan Rmx) √+
This is a throbbing remix from French producer, Dalcan, off of Joachim Garraud‘s most recent EP, Bang Bang. The legendary DJ/producer has had an extremely busy spring and summer, releasing a full lenth album, 3 EPs, a release on Toolroom‘s Ibiza 2011 compilation, and seminal sets at Ultra Music Festival and Coachella. The Frenchman will also be playing live at Lollapalooza in a collaborative set with the Jane’s Addiction rocker, Perry Farrell. Wow.

DISCO VIBES
• MyKill – Falling (Original Mix) √+
MyKill is a DJ from San Francisco that makes some fantastic funky ass disco. I actually found this track on our good friend Nate’s blog a while back and got into it again just in time for summer. Head on over to MyKill’s Soundcloud for some more great groovin’ goodies.

FUNKY ELECTRONICA
• The 2 Bears – In My Brain Is Like A Computer (Telling Me What To Do) (Original Mix) [Beatport] √++
Raf Rundell and Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard are The 2 Bears. They make music and they wear bear costumes. Both are fantastic. Give this one a listen from their latest EP, Bear Hug.

Jonah’s Zip

Foreword from Tropicool:
These tunes are meant to make you infectiously dance in a unstoppable sex-craved fashion. Handle with care; both your marbles and your lady friend(s).  Stay horny my friends. (all are check plusses DUH!)

Tribal Disco
• Shindu – Happy House (Herr Styler Remix)
I was first captivated by the original in the Magician’s Magic Tape 11, only to then learn about the stellar remix package.  Herr Styler adds a very tropicool vibe showcasing tribal drums, flutes, and cowbells nestled atop a funky keys riff.  This song never ceases to make me smile, take off my clothes, or eat raw meat.  It’s the opening tune to Tropicool’s “A Turd in the Punch Bowl” mix.

Tropical Disco Funk
• Beni – It’s a Bubble (Round Table Knights Remix)
Everything we love from Round Table Knights has been eclipsed by their newest remix of Beni‘s “It’s a Bubble”.  Steel drums, Funky bubble sounds, and an infectious rhythm disco that leads me to believe I have restless leg syndrome.  Get creepy, and don’t go home at night.  ”Hey street walker!”

Sexy Funky House
• Telonius – Last Night (Extended Club Version)
Telonius is a very sexual creature.  Listen to the lyrics; live the music video.  He has inseminated an incredible single here that’s dancefloor, afterhours, and bedroom ready, all hot and bothered.  Fucking element of sexy house, funk, and disco all in one has truly created an infectious, jean-tightening, jam!

Nudisco Glory
• Mighty Mouse – Between the Pavement and the Stars (Edwin Van Cleef Remix)
We can always expect pure genius when a song drops under the knife of Edwin Van Cleef or is presented live by the Mightiest of the Mouses.  These 2 juggernauts have come together to transform like Megatron and create one Decepticon ass-kicking tune. Euphoric yet groovy, very full bodied.  Includes lyrics.  Pregnant woman should not consume this beverage.

Sexy Feel-Good Funk
• Toro Y Moi – Still Sound (Voodoo Bear Remix)
I first heard this jam in the Mustang June Mix, and as the corners of my mouth began to curl up in utter happiness, the funky stings hit and I lifted out of my seat.  What a glorious feel-good song.  Summer daze, cold beers, and the hot curves of your buddy’s sister.  Truly a song of the senses; Get amongst it!

jonahberry & Tropicool

One of the biggest surprises to me at Ultra Music Festival in Miami last month was the BANGING set by Joachim Garraud in the Root Society Dome on Friday night. The smiley Frenchman blew me away with his signature edits and a nifty little live keytar performance, so naturally I can’t wait to see his Invasion Live performance at Coachella this Saturday at 4PM in the Sahara tent. He’ll be sandwiched in between Sander Kleinenberg and Chuckie, so it might be a good spot to stay for a bit on Saturday evening. In honor of his upcoming performance, Joachim has released AutoErotique‘s remix of the new track ‘Everybody In The Place’ off of his new album, Invasion 2011, that came out in late March. Go pick up the whole album on Beatport and grab this little ditty while it’s hawt.
