For some reason or another, over the years most holidays that otherwise have a rather solemn connotation have merely become another day off from school/work to drink and bask in the sun in the good ol’ United States of T&A. While I feel compelled to advise you to take a minute to reflect on what Memorial Day really is all about, who are we at GDD™ to break with tradition. Hell, I know we’ll all be poolside ourselves with a cocktail or twelve in our system.
So when you’re getting drunk shaking your bum at the pool over this three-day weekend, cue up this special guest mix offered up by our Canadian homie and frequent Diplo collaborator Grandtheft. It’s stacked full of Grandtheft originals, edits, and remixes, as well as a bevy of GDD™ friends and favorites, including Cashmere Cat, RL Grime, Willy Joy, Skream, Major Lazer, Kendrick Lamar and more. With 33 tracks packed into a one-hour show you know the good vibes will keep on comin’.

ATL’s Heroes x Villains know Trap music. Not the kind of Trap your younger brother is making in his bedroom. It’s the kind of shit that Atlanta has born and bred for years. Put best by the Dirty South duo, “We’re only interested in making music you can fight or strip to.” Not a bad mantra whatsoever, and it seems to be doing them well as they’ve been commissioned by Major Lazer for an official remix of ‘Jah No Partial,’ due out on Diplo‘s Mad Decent next month. Big time roots n bass with this one.
GDD’s own Tropicool delivers a warm musical mosaic comin’ in hot & bothered sure to tickle the fruit of your loins and tease the audible palate with euphoric tones, smooth rhythms, & sexy funk. Whether your pouring warm cream over them curvaceous twin nippily peaks or dripping hot wax all over that sweet, sultry V, these hand-crafted, carefully selected tunes will metamorphasize you into a modern day Don Juan El Capitãn. Be careful, they may fall in love.

Major Lazer has become a movement. Amidst touring the world with their massive collective and spreading the noise, Mad Decent chief Diplo and his new partners in crime Jillionaire and Walshy Fire teamed up this year with UK bass aficionado Flux Pavilion to create “Jah Not Partial,” putting the Rasta spirit into a heavy dub driven anthem. The music video for the track premiered today, focusing on the life & times of the group at festivals and road trips far and wide. Oh, Mister Marshall…
Major Lazer is at the forefront of dance music genre fusion. Diplo‘s innovative style has taken influence from Dancehall, Hip Hop, and Reggae, and injected the contemporary sounds of Electro and Moombahton — creating a distinct flavor unmatched by any of his peers. Following up the 2009 debut album, Guns Don’t Kill People — Lazers Do, Switch-less Major Lazer will be releasing the sophomore album Free The Universe on November 6th via Downtown Records. The album will feature massive collaborations including Tyga, Wyclef Jean, and Flux Pavillion, as well as this first single, “Get Free,” with Amber Coffman of Dirty Projectors. This music video directed by SoMe truly illuminates the inspiration Diplo finds for his music in Jamaica — giving credit to the culture and people that influence the creed of Major Lazer.
Pete and Spencer of Black Cards are digitally releasing a new EP titled Use Your Disillusion on Beatport and iTunes next Tuesday the 17th of July, and the guys have been kind enough to allow us to premiere the stream for one of the tracks from the release, ‘End Of Pretend feat. Matthew Koma.’ It’s a vocally-driven Electro House monster, and it’s safe to say that the guys’ grasp on producing Big Room Electro has been solidified after their success with multiple remixes for Major Lazer, Cobra Starship, and Example, as well as this anticipated new original EP. Keep an eye out next week for all of Use Your Disillusion.
