It was the coldest dance floor that ever was at the Los Coyotes Indian Reservation as 96 hours of House, Techno, and Love warmed you from the inside out. What the weather lacked in warmth was more than made up for with supernova sets from some of the biggest names in underground. Now, the energy is focused on the 13 date City Hearts tour to keep the Desert Hearts vibe alive and it’s sure to warm your winter spirits. Watch the recap above and find out where to catch a groove at a city near you after the jump! Continue Reading

It’s your favorite time of the year, yet again– 2015 celebrations start in about 24 hours and you have no clue how you’ll be ringing it in.
This is what you read GDD™ for. I’d say Let’s Party NYE. Set in the gorgeous and epic (and Legendary) Park Plaza Hotel, you have one last chance to join me and a few of my closest friends for live sets by Blood Orange and Classixx, as well as DJ sets by GDD™ favorites (Thee) Mike B, Yacht, and yes, Blake Anderson from Workaholics. Make no mistake, this is the only celebrity DJ set I will endorse for 2015. Hopefully ever.
I rang up the organizers for #LetsPartyNYE to congratulate them on having a pretty cool name, and in doing so was able to arrange a 10% discount code for the GDD™ Extended Fam as a little holiday gift to us all. What’s more, they indulged, is that this sexy, three-stage soirée goes until 3AM, and each ticket comes with open bar. Easy, dear readers, easy…
Promocode GDDNYE gets you 10% and I look forward to seeing you workin’ that floor tomorrow night.

It’s been a while, you could say, since it was last possible to catch Audion (Mathew Dear’s Techno Alter Ego) on tour. In that time you may have discovered your love for techno, as he discovered a love for changing the way you receive Techno live. With a career expansive album in the works titled, “Audion X,” Mathew Dear has put together an evening long odyssey to accompany the immersive audio visual content from his forthcoming album. SUBVERTICUL will feature a custom stage setup that was built by Heather Shaw (of Amon Tobin’s groundbreaking ISAM tour fame), whose team has created a labyrinth sculpture based off the Audion “A” that pulses, spins, and grows in response to Audion‘s ever shifting rhythms. We recently had the chance to speak with Dear about what to expect this Saturday at the El Rey, how it all came together, and how it is all still coming together. Continue Reading

Porchester Hall in London yielded three sold out shows for trance trio Above & Beyond where they performed acoustic versions of their original productions for sold out audiences, some set to be released on their upcoming project. Based off the London performance’s success, two special Los Angeles performances have been slated for Oct 13th and 14th. Those who follow A&B on facebook saw that the historic Greek Theater has been chosen as the home for this special performance. Along with the announcement of venue, a one minute preview of “Love Is Not Enough” was released to quell anticipations of what an acoustic set could bring.
