Forgive me folks. I’m a day late on posting Day 9 of our advent calendar. The GDD Holidaze Party (also my birthday celebration) got the best of me. The festivities on Saturday ran all the way into Sunday night, so Day 9 of the GDD Advent Calendar is happening on Day 10.
One lucky winner will receive (1) Vitalic Noise T-Shirt, (2) Viceroy USB Memory Sticks, (1) limited edition Miami Horror “World Tour” White Tee by Hugo Boss and (1) signed copy of Miami Horror’s LP “Illumination”. WOW! Fun stuff! Winner will be announced later this week.
How to win: Comment below, comment on the Facebook post or Tweet to us your favorite Miami Horror or Viceroy song or remix! It’s that simple. Bonus consideration points for those of you who tag Vitalic Noise and the artists and/or hashtag #GDDadvent and/or for sharing the Facebook post. OK, have fun + good luck!

CMJ rolled through town last weekend and we got a taste of almost everything the city-wide festival had to offer. However, one showcase in particular rose above the others in a party I soon won’t forget….
“The waves ≠ raves consists of hand-picked gems that inspire us, tickling and tempting our creative juices. Some are old, some are new, but it is what we are listening to now. They are groovey, flowing, and sun-kissed just like that perfect wave. They are uplifting and guaranteed to put a smile on your face. They sound the best with a babe in one hand, a cold brewski in the other, and the sand beneath your feet. Stay Dreamy.”
This week we are very happy to welcome the groovy Scot, GRUM, back to CONTROL at the Avalon, as well as a DJ set from the newly relocated US residents from Melbourne, Miami Horror. Supporting the pair of headliners will be Nicky Savage and our good friend, Gypsy Disco Caravan, so get ready for an all night sexy groovefest.
Please email names to RSVP@GOTTADANCEDIRTY.COM to be on our discount guestlist for the evening. All names must be submitted by 5:30PM on Friday. Guestlist pricing will be $15 before 11PM.
What better way to kick off Miami Music Week tomorrow than with a live performance by Australian good guys Miami Horror. Without a doubt, one of the most intimate and eccentric venues Miami has to offer, Bardot will surely be slammed with pre-sunburned bodies from around the world, as well as cameos from select members of the GDD family (stickers in hand).
With so many wonderfully diverse tracks, I think it’s safe to say that Miami Horror’s debut album, “Illumination”, will continue to get remixed to death until somewhere around 2012. The brand new single, “Holidays”, which features Neon Indian/Vega frontman Alan Palomo, already has a handful of remixes floating around and the track hasn’t even been officially released yet.
Dirty Dancers! Today marks the first day of a brand new season (the most underrated season, in my book). And setting the new season’s pace with a different kind of dirty dancing is my new Fall mix…I hope your equinox rocks:

After a number of disappointing full lengths from some of my favorite indie dance acts this year, I can’t tell you how excited I am for the debut album of Miami Horror this Friday. Following the trend of LCD Soundsystem and The Dead Weather, Miami Horror has been streaming their new album “Illumination” all week on USTREAM. After previewing “Illumination” repeatedly, I’m going to jump the gun and place it in my Top 5 of the year; not a single bad tune to be found! Stream the entire album above or check out this link to my personal favorite from “Illumination”.
