Los Angeles-based folk/electronic band, DWNTWN, have just put out their latest single, ‘See My Eyes,’ on the most recent Kitsuné America compilation, and today, the duo from Caen, France known as BeatauCue have added their own spin on the original. It’s a beautiful take on DWNTWN’s production — reminiscent of something that Kaskade might play to thousands of happy fans just before sunset. If you’re in LA, DWNTWN will be playing live on June 25th at Bardot in Hollywood, so head on over to their Facebook for ticket information as well as the latest on all of their releases including their next EP which will feature four new original tracks.

The last time I was in Vegas it was 3am and I wasn’t quite ready to let the party die. Naturally, I wandered over to Marquee at the Cosmopolitan, and Kaskade was in the middle of yet another of his marathon sets that have highlighted a stellar 2011 in Las Vegas. If there’s anything better than confetti, champagne, classy ladies, and choons by a world-class DJ to be had at 3am in Vegas then let me know, but until then I’ll keep coming back to Marquee and Kaskade.
GDD™ wants to help you be a part of the experience, and so we’re giving away two tickets to his show at Marquee this Saturday, November 12th. On top of that, the one lucky winner will receive his recently released ‘Fire & Ice’ double-disc CD that was undoubtedly one of the most anticipated releases of the year.
All you have to do is head to the GDD™ Facebook page, ‘Like’ it, and leave a comment with why you think you deserve to win, or follow us on Twitter and tweet @gottadancedirty with why you want to see Kaskade this Saturday! (21+ only please!) Winner will be announced tomorrow afternoon so you have time to plan ahead!
