It’s The Dirt #141 brought to you by Steven N. Ewald + aRod. It’s a brand new year and we’re taking things up a notch. We’ve got a 12-pack of freebies from big hitters like Treasure Fingers & The Knocks, Chromeo, Salva, Dillon Francis feat. TEED and the latest French Express release from Lane 8. Plus plenty of other freshness from our GDD mates Traveler, a blissed out Chris Jylkke remix of a Lana del Rey “classic” & plenty of straight up HOUSE MUSIC to kick this year into gear. Strap in for this week’s wild ride…
It was surprising to hear this Lana Del Rey song so much in sets lately from the likes of Tiesto and Kaskade, but then again not really. And I can’t say I was even that excited to click play on another LDR remix. But Serge Devant went for a more hypnotic and sexy deep house remix to the original, and it’s much unlike any rendition out there. Stripping away the track to it’s bare essentials, then pitching Lana’s voice, and sampling only what he needs to complete the track in proper remix manner, makes this track interesting to me. Be sure to check back and subscribe to his Soundcloud channel to be on top of when this get’s released as a free download.
The haunting and melodic vocals of Lana Del Rey’s “Summertime Sadness” has seen countless remixes even still since last year, and we have managed to find another gem among the masses. UK up-and-comer Maff Boothroyd has just released his special rework for FREE on his soundcloud, after quickly reaching his ’1000 listens’ goal. His powerful deep basslines and garage house appeal landed him with our GDD supported friends Maison Records and we’ve been playing out many of their tracks in our sets across the pond. Grab these baby below and be on the look out for more!

Long weekend? I know my ears are still ringing after a few nights of open bar and noisy monitors DJing inside of a freakin’ gondola, so this GDD™ exclusive World premiere is exactly what I need right now. Combine the soothing vocals of Brooklyn-based diva Lana Del Rey’s smash hit ‘Video Games’ with Montreal’s Grandtheft‘s knack for turning a song on its head and into a groovy jam and we have lift off. If you remember Grandtheft’s take on The Weeknd’s ‘Rolling Stone’ from a few months back then you’ll be jumping out of your seat to get this one.
