Stockholm’s John Andersson– aka Zoo Brazil, is one of dance music’s most underrated and innovative producers and already boasts a back catalogue of more than a hundred singles under various aliases. His DJ performances all over the world are highly acclaimed, and now he presents his first-ever mix compilation to show the world what a Zoo Brazil live mix experience stands for. As the title suggests, “Songs For Clubs” is a powerful and club aimed mix of fifteen stellar tech-house tracks that features Nic Fanciulli, Joris Voorn, Super Flu, Love Girls, Format B and remixes by Popof and Tocadisco. Grab the mix below, as well as some of the must have tunes!
Joris Voorn and Edwin Oosterwal established the Rejected imprint in 2006 with aspirations to curate “music to make the buttocks move,” but Joris found his calling as a DJ and dance music producer an entire decade before the birth of the label. Since 1997, the Dutchman has brought the best in House and Techno to the masses, and he’ll be illuminating 15 years of doing so this September 17th at Trouw in Amsterdam for the 15 Years Rejected Behind The Decks event. He’s put together an impressive mix full of classics from the past decade and a half, so give a listen and join us in congratulating a living legend reaching a massive milestone!

On Saturday, Smirnoff’s hotly anticipated Sensation event rolled into London for an unparalleled night of mischief in white. The setup – which drew together 22 fountains, 13 laser systems, 100 different pyrotechnic effects and 16 6-meter wide jellyfish – was like nothing we’ve ever seen. Following on from last week’s chat with the man behind it all, creative director Duncan Stutterheim, one thing he said resonated with me: “the show is close to perfection”. I’ll be the first to admit that the statement sounded a little arrogant initially, but after experiencing Saturday, I find myself in agreement.
The show was beautifully executed, and no expense was spared as the London crowd piled into the O2 Arena to be treated to a spectacle that incorporated performance art, installations, new technologies, and music from some of the world’s finest DJs. The DJs performed from a rotating booth in the centre of the dance floor, while legions of clubbers hailed them like gods dressed head to toe in white. This was a clubbing experience like no other.
The most enjoyable set on the night came from Joris Voorn and Nic Fanciulli, who really set the standard with some awesome techno and house, before Fedde Le Grand and Martin Solveig took the party to the next level with some huge big-room anthems. All DJs were really well received, but the night was less about the music than it was about the experience and overall staging of the event which was a total sensory overload. We had a great time, and would like to thank the Smirnoff team for their awesome hospitality.
On a night out, it’s always nice to hear praise for the work we do here at Gotta Dance Dirty, and when that praise comes from a world renowned DJ it’s even more flattering and lets us know that we must be doing something right. Getting kudos for our blog from Martin Solveig was a surreal highlight on Saturday night when we caught up with him before his headline set. You can read our exclusive interview with him after the jump… Continue Reading
We caught up with the man behind Sensation: Duncan Stutterheim for a rare interview, during which he puts to bed the question many of our Stateside readers are itching to hear an answer to: Will Sensation ever come to the US?

I seriously cannot recommend enough that you download this mix immediately. I think I’ve listened to it at least six times now in the last week. If you’re familiar with Shadow Dancer (three gold stars for you!) then this mix will be quite the surprise as I can positively say I’ve never heard this side of the brothers before, whether it be live or in their production. Filled with beautiful autumn grooves this entire mix evokes everything about their new track ‘It’s The Everything’ fresh off BNR‘s new sublabel, BNR TRAX.
Today I have quite the treat for you. A GDD™ exclusive interview with the man with the golden voice, Mr. Pete Tong. Famous for his BBC Radio 1 programs, contributions to the global music community, recent productions, Ibiza club nights, and that discerning ear for hot new talent, the man is also a world-class talent behind the decks. Pete will be headlining the House of Horror stage alongside Armand Van Helden, Felix Da Housecat + more at this Saturday’s Monster Massive 2010.
