This week’s Dirt is a compilation of many different vibes and grooves brought to you by Burn Unit and me. Although my colleague and I share many of the same tastes for music, we gather much of our new tunage from different outlets, making the combination of our curation a wholesome, healthy platter of solid tracks that we see fit only for GDD™‘s longest standing feature, The Dirt. Have at it and have a great weekend ladies and gentlemen!
DIDDY HOUSE • 11:11 – Tourist Trap (Jamie Jones ‘Miss X’ Remix)√√√+++ [192kbps] Diddy recently completed work on an album with techno guru Guy Gerber under the moniker 11:11 and the remix package for ‘Tourist Trap’ features Visionquest, Soul Clap, this gem, and more. Personally, I think it’s great for the industry that Diddy is on board with such incredibly talented underground artists. Guy is calling the collab the “future of electronic pop.”
There’s really nothing quite like a big room Phoenix remix to generate a little movement in the lumber yard. The GTA boys have had this out for a minute, but just recently made it available for download. Click through to SoundCloud to grab it in all its glory!
NOT SURE WHAT TO CALL IT BUT IT’S GOOD HOUSE • No Body – Start Again√+ Imagine that Bart B More and Benny Benassi had a baby, then that baby grew up and knocked up Dirty South’s baby, and then yeah, you get the point… that’s what this sounds like.
I will always associate any rendition of this song with Mehdi. Pretty much the most absurd tagteam set ever was going down between Boys Noize, A-Trak, Busy P, Riton, Diplo and Mehdi at an Electric Zoo afterparty when one of the guys (I think Pedro) dropped ‘How Deep Is Your Love.’ The place went apeshit, I went upstairs to get a drink, and that’s the last memory I have of DJ Mehdi behind the decks. I’ll never forget that moment… You should click through to SoundCloud and read the description A-Trak wrote for this dub he did. Truly touching. Always remember to keep on smiling. RIP Mehdi.
Los Angeles, I can confidently say that this Saturday marks one of the best dance music events to ever happen in this city. Crosstown Rebels, the lauded label run by the mysteriously interesting Damian Lazarus, and Flaunt Magazine are bringing the infamous Get Lost party to the West Coast after multiple successful and wildly hedonistic events during WMC in Miami in years past. With some of the biggest names in the global underground scene, Get Lost LA should be a bequest of auditory knowledge to all electronic music enthusiasts in this city. Find all necessary info below and make sure to read after the jump to see what Los Angeles’ trio, Droog, have to say about Get Lost, the Culprit label, and how Jamie Jones and Lee Foss helped them be where they’re at now.
