As we get ready to slide into the weekend, rising Miami talent Artec dishes out a nostalgic touch-up of Calvin Harris‘ hit track Bounce. Instead of hitting you over the head with overly anthemic synth patches or obnoxious amounts of white noise, he delivers a solid club track that tugs on your guilty pleasures while Kelis‘ familiar vocals do some work to get stuck in your head for the first time since 2011. Grab the free download below and be on the lookout for more Artec material in the near future.

You hear his name more now than MTV (quote unquote) musicians. His tracks have been supported and praised by almost every DJ you’ve ever seen. His work has been a staple of house music for years on end, but now David Guetta is facing mixed reviews for being called a pioneer in bridging the gap between electronic music and pop and hip-hop. The release of his Grammy award winning album One Love earned him much deserved attention in the electronic community, but more importantly is becoming the reason those “Do you only play techno here?” club-goers are finding satisfaction and respect for the genre. Say what you will about his commercial collaborations and his Top-40 driven rise in popularity, but Guetta is making all the right moves for electronic music as a movement. Personally, I’ll play a David Guetta track any day over any rap or teenie bopper request.

Still not heavy enough? If you haven’t seen his DJ sets, then you have no room to bad mouth because they’re a high energy ride on the Dutch train. I couldn’t of been happier to see him drop ‘Kernkraft 400′ into ‘Riverside’ @ EDC 2009 in front of a crowd of tens of thousands.

To my DJs and dirty dancers – If you have only heard the radio edits of Guetta’s One Love album, then obviously you missed the release of his XXL Limited Edition version, which features over 30 tracks of extended mixes and some of the biggest and baddest remixes to be released. Why am I tootin Guetta’s horn? Because he’s playing this weekend @ The Hollywood Palladium, so you know I got a nice lil’ Saturday planned. I would invite you to come but it’s already sold out. It’s okay, just come tonight to the preview party of our new GDD weekly, starting officially in 2011.

Here’s one of my favs off the album as well as a great club bootleg to add to your mainstream sets:

Legendary DJ and prominent party-starter Donald Glaude will be making some noise at CONTROL this Friday at the Avalon in Hollywood. I actually saw Donald’s set at Playhouse earlier this summer with LA Riots, and let me tell you it was a loud one. I’d never heard a DJ use one before, but DG brought a truck horn along with him that shook the shit out of that club. I’m curious if he’ll have that in his arsenal on Friday. Supporting Donald’s headlining spot will be Trouble & Bass goth man Deathface, along with GDD™ buddy Rifat Ziadeh, Daniel L’Amour, and Steve Prior. Good times for all!

Please RSVP names to JONAH@GOTTADANCEDIRTY.COM to be on our discount ticket guestlist for the evening. Pricing will be as follows:
21+: FREE before 11pm, $10 after
18+: FREE before 11pm, $15 after

An oldie but goodie from our friend TJR.

To keep you gettin ready for the festival masses, here’s an arsenal of summer slammers that have the epic build-ups that all follow with solid ass drops that definitely show off that the ‘siren-horn-alarm’ still can’t be beat.
