Welcome to Vol. 5 of our weekly feature here at Gotta Dance Dirty™ : The Weekly Mix up.Every Friday we post a new selection of mixes from around the world. Some new, some old, and some GDD™ Exclusive. So whether you’re powering through your last day at the office or prepping for a weekend night out, check back here every Friday… Ya never know what is going to end up in The Mix Up!
This week in The Mix: Bassnectar releases his newest ear drum pleaser, our very own ///Bones shows you the deeper side of house music, up and comer Justin Jay does a GDD™ guest mix & Daft Punk throws it down like its 1997.
With this week’s guest mix from the teenage Los Angeles native, Justin Jay, we’re kicking up the tempo and keeping things groovy for all of your deep/bassline needs and desires. The old saying goes, “Love has no age,” but in today’s electronic music industry, it’s becoming ever more clear that “globally-recognized musical talent” can be readily substituted for “love,” and Justin is the perfect example of that. With matured taste and production skills that are well beyond his years, he continues to impress with no sign of slowing down. We’re proud to present you with an hour of fine mixing and curated tunes, along with a free bonus download of the original mix of “The Dip,” as well as Prince Club‘s “Dip it Good Re-work.” Enjoy! √+
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again. Watch out for Justin Jay. The 19-year-old phenom has been making some serious noise in the bassline department, and it hasn’t gone unseen. Jay was quickly discovered by Claude Von Stroke and the DirtyBird crew, landing a spot as the youngest member of the San Francisco record label. His newest tune “The Dip” is available now exclusively on DirtyBird’s Drip.Fm membership – and will be FREE to the general public in 2 weeks. Check it out below, and don’t sleep on this kid.
Bring out your dry rubs and get ready to kiss the cook — dirtybird have just released their latest compilation, BBQ Trax, today featuring 4 new ones from Nick Monaco, Justin Jay, A1 Bassline, and Shadow Child & James Talk. Head honcho Claude VonStroke explains, “Before dirtybird was a record label it started as a San Francisco barbecue party based on sunshine, great music and carne asada. Friends playing good music out in the park for anyone who would show up. In celebration of the energy and spirit of the BBQ party we bring you this 4 track release with that summery open air vibe.” So fire up those charcoal grills and turn the volume up, dirtybird is bringing the fire. Pick up the release on Beatport now. √+Continue Reading
This week we welcome some youngbloods at VS at The Central in Santa Monica including the most junior member of the Dirtybird family, Justin Jay. We’ve been watching this guy for a bit now, and we’ve been so impressed by his original productions that we needed to bring him over to the West Side to showcase his unbelievable sound. In addition, we also have the meteorically rising Techno producer, Vakkuum, who is fresh off of a European tour, has releases on Tiga‘s Turbo Recordings, and has already gained support from Fake Blood, Brodi, Mumbai Science, and more. Come on out this week to hear the next generation of top talent.
Without a doubt, dirtybird is one of the top labels in dance music. Their unique sound has infiltrated all corners of the globe, and the amalgam of Ghetto Tech, Tech House, and Bass has gained the attention of music lovers everywhere, and this Friday, CONTROL at the Avalon in Hollywood will host a label showcase featuring Justin Martin, Claude VonStroke, Worthy, and the young gun, Justin Jay. Expect good tunes and bring out your groovy dance moves — this one is going to be good.

The newest addition to Dirtybird Records, Justin Jay, & Jack Healy produced a track that’ll definitely get you in the mood to get down. I love songs that seem to transport you into a completely different environment and this tribal tech-house gem does just that. Justin Jay has been receiving great feedback for his first release, How Goes The Dynamite?, and it is already evident that he is paving his way to fame.
