Following up some ace releases on both Main Course and OWSLA in recent months, Denver-based Wuki has announced an all-new download series titled WUKILEAKS, where he’ll be giving away one bootleg a week for the next 9 weeks. He’s kicked off the project today with a breaky, techy rendition of one of my all time favorite high school freak dancing songs — Mystikal’s “Shake Ya Ass.” Give the dude a like on Facebook to get it for free and keep your eyes on GDD for all weekly episodes of WUKILEAKS.
To really turn up the season of giving, our friends over at Main Course have bundled up a gargantuan gift package with originals, remixes and VIP edits from the likes of Astronomar, Bot, Clockwork, AC Slater, His Majesty Andre, Wuki, Wax Motif, Neoteric and more… read below what they had to say about the giveawat and everything thats included!

If you were looking for a little pick-me-up on this Monday, then our buds at Main Course have just the treat for you. This free snack is compliments of LA’s rising talent Wood Holly, who delivers a thumping 808 bass demon in the form of Bowser. With early support from the likes of Worthy, Kill Frenzy, and the head honchos at Main Course, we figured you’d also like to enjoy this tasty bite.
The newest release from the Main Course camp comes from Washington, D.C. based producer Nacey on this bouncy, two-side EP. Uptown Skank is a driving dance track punctuated by piercing stabs and hypnotic synths before finally giving way to a demonic bassline. Dirty Sweet is the flipside of the release, and maintains a smoky, backroom vibe as it chugs along before letting a funky sax riff take over. Like all Main Course releases, the music is free to download, but if you’re so inclined, you can support the artists by picking up the release on either Beatport or iTunes.
Like a phoenix rising from its ashes, the third installment of my Haute & Bothered mixtape series has arrived after a year’s hiatus. The aesthetic draws heavily from certain tracks that disavow basic genre umbrellas, and after crawling out of the deep house black hole that I found myself in the last year, it seemed right to enter the autumnal equinox with a grip of new tracks that subscribe to this mantra from the likes of Curses, Canblaster, SCNTST, as well as an original track from myself mixed into the fray.
Back once again with the 129th installment of The Dirt with Troy Kurtz & Three Wise. We’re covering all the bases this week with some tasty new snacks courtesy of our friends over at Main Course, an energized remix of Beyonce, as well as Kastle‘s impressive rework of Drake which is nothing short of class.

Our friend Will Eastman just released his Caroline/Rabid EP via GDD™ fav imprint, Main Course, and I can seriously say that I wish “Caroline” had been out when I had my Joshua Tree visionquest earlier this summer. It’s tastefully trippy, using ritualistic percussion and acoustic guitar to round out a great leftfield tune. And the video is the cherry on the trippy top. Watch the video and pick up the EP on Beatport!

Celebrating their eighth release today, the relatively new Main Course label has firmly established themselves as one of the brightest imprints we’ve seen this year. Label boss Neoteric teams up with Australian heavy hitter Wax Motif with a seriously pounding track in Das Machines. The package also comes with a bit shorter, slightly more ‘epic’ dub that’s just as mighty. Both are available for free download, however, Main Course wants to feed their artists as well, so you also have option to support them on Beatport & iTunes if you feel up for it. For those of you in Australia, fellow Main Course label boss Astronomar is gearing up to start his tour Down Under in just a few days. More info + music video after the jump.
Main Course maestro, Astronomar, just sent over the latest offering from his newly launched label last night — a 2-track EP from Italian producer His Majesty Andre who is showcasing a new style and sound via this release. The A-side “Sunshine” features the beautiful vocals of GDD™ favorite Anna Lunoe, and don’t be confused by the song title as HMA and Anna have brought “Sunshine” into a dark place with deep bass and filters ready for the club. “Moonlight” serves as the flip side of the release, and once again His Majesty Andre goes with a deep, jacking bassline that rolls it’s way through the track. Main Course has said that this is their best release so far, and I wouldn’t disagree with that claim whatsoever. Pick it up on Beatport.
