Trap House is in and there’s no denying it. Fusing Dance elements with Hip Hop sensibilities, Brooklyn’s Baauer is coming onto the scene strong with the Harlem Shake EP, released today on Mad Decent‘s sub-label, Jeffree’s. So far, ‘Harlem Shake’ has been big upped by Diplo, Brodinski, and Flosstradamus, and it was just recently included in Rustie’s Essential Mix on BBC Radio 1. We’re going to be doing a Spotlight feature on this dude soon, so keep your eyes out. Until then, download both tracks off of the EP for free below! √+ Continue Reading

Our good friends Botnek were kind enough to send over a preview of their newest remix they did of the Crooker’s track “Hummus” that came out today on Mad Decent/ Southern Fried records. Let me tell you one thing, this remix is huge. I highly suggest you check it out. It really shows how talented this up and coming production duo is.

Do not forget to check out the rest of the remixes from the EP over on beatport

If the rapidly rising Italian producer, NT89, isn’t on your radar just yet, it will be after you soak in his latest release out on Bad Life Records, Payne EP. Deep, dark, and grungy are the first adjectives that come to mind after listening to the 3 track EP, complete with two originals and a remix from Bang Gang/Mad Decent rep, Obi Blanche. Already picking up hype from Mumbai Science, Bobmo, Paul Chambers, and more, I’m pretty sure we might even witness the big guns like Tiga and Erol playing out this Future Techno masterpiece known as Payne. Pick it up on Beatport now.

Yesterday, our boys Josh & Angelo from PeaceTreaty sent us over a pair of previews of their upcoming remixes that will be hitting Beatport in the next couple of weeks, and we are impressed as usual. The first track is a hot n’ heavy new take on Moby‘s ‘After,’ complete with a light synthy Big Room build and a heavy bassline drop that I can’t wait to hear on some professional speakers. Already gaining support from Steve Angello, Hardwell, and Tommy Trash, this remix will be released on Moby’s Lil Idiot Records on Monday, October 31st. The second remix on our plate is Diplo & Oliver Twizt‘s ‘Go,’ and personally, I can really hear the always-improving PeaceTreaty signature sound in this one. This EP will be released on Mad Decent on November 8th, and you probably have heard it played out already by some people you may have heard of: Tiesto, Benny Benassi, Afrojack, Chuckie, and Mr. Aoki. Keep ’em coming fellas!

If there is one thing we love to do @ GDD, it’s help the up-and-comers get a chance to showcase their fresh faced production to all of you dirty dancers and the EDM scene. Some of our good buddies – The KiD and Korova – from the LA blog Shifty Rhythms have poured heart and soul into compiling their breakthrough EP, The Red Panda Chronicles Part 1. Derived from personal experiences (including working directly for Mad Decent) and a culmination of their styles, this EP embodies influences from everything in electronic music today. Lucky for you, we get an exclusive breakdown of each track and the entire compilation, all being offered up for FREE. Here’s what they have to say about it:

Red Panda Chronicles Part I is the first of an indefinite number of our EP releases… citing influences including everything from tribal tech, to moombahton, to global groove, Red Panda Chronicles is a compilation of 6 tracks made for moving… in the club, in the car, in your bedroom.The title is not so much a reference to anything contained within the EP, as much as the most appropriate collaborative image of our art.We embody the Red Panda, and the Red Panda embodies us. So Get Shifty. Whenever. Wherever.
