“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).

Pre-sale tix are still available for $10, and doors are opening at 8pm.

Opening and closing tunes will be provided by Pirate Stereo and myself.

Miami Horror – Make You Mine (Codebreaker Remix)

Miami Horror – Sometimes (Universe Remix)

Here’s to:
Feelin’ up your date tonight
Going on a moonlight drive
Slow dancing in the dark
Skipping the bullshit + going straight to getting ravaged under the sheets

MillionYoung – Easy Now
Miami Horror – I Look to You (Tim Fuch’s Makeout Remix)
Hercules & Love Affair – Leonora
Douze – We Got the Love
Christian TV – Let’s Just Fuck


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.

First up is a fun little DJ-friendly edit by Shield Your Eyes. All I know about this dude is that he’s from Chicago and he wears glasses, so you know the edit will be solid:

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”.

Miami Horror – I Look To You (feat Kimbra)
Breathy female vocals and funky basslines, I wish I could dance dirty enough to this one.

In other news, be sure to check out Hot Biscuits this Friday for the release of my first mixtape in over a year and half alongside mixes from ///BONES and Troy as well!

Upon its arrival back in October, Miami Horror’s radiant synth monster, Sometimes, was an instant, dreamy classic (complete w/dreamy video). Since then, G.L.O.V.E.S. took it up a notch with his soaring version of the track. And now fellow Aussie, Shazam, keeps it rolling with his brand new remix of Sometimes, part of the recently released Moon Theory single.

No word yet on any new Miami Horror album info (all I have heard is that they have 11/12 tracks completed and are heading back into the studio to tighten up production). It is definitely one of the most eagerly awaited releases of 2010. With tracks like Make You Mine, Don’t Be On With Her, Sometimes and now Moon Theory under their belt, Miami Horror’s new album is a can’t miss (especially with collaborators like VEGA & The Golden Filter!).

Miami Horror – Sometimes (Shazam Remix)

**It’s nice to see that the whole violent Perth/Melbourne, East coast/West coast rivalry from the 90s has cooled off.

You know you have the flu when wacking-off doesn’t even feel good. But, it also means a lotta good music for you! Well, actually tons of very good music. While I’ve been aching and tossing in bed, the past month has been a billowing heaven for awesome nu-disco and feel good jams. I’ll let the music speak for itself, and make sure you download ALL of it, because yes, it ALL is worth it. You can thank me later.
Breakbot Does it again, adding sweet funkified nectar to this dark drive home. LoveFoxx’s, aka lead vocals for CSS, voice is beautiful bringing this clouded masterpiece together.
Can’t get enough of Mr. Russ chimes. Its dreamy and dancey at the same time. Goes together like peas and carrots.
OK.ok, i know this was #1 on hypeM and blogged all over the place, but i couldn’t resist. Its just that damn good. Its indie-infused which i’m a huge sucker for, and we gotta give it up for our friends, LightsOverLA.
Cassian and Miami Horror, what could be sweeter? Probably only sugar cane dropping from the teet of megan fox.
Another remix from GDD favorite Bubblegum Sci-fi AKA Anthony Ross AKA The Grey Ghost AKA the sultan of sweetness!
Barretso is one of my new favorite acts, if you’re just reading this now, grab the previous post here. This song is pure glitchy happy glory. Keep your eyes peeled for both Redial and Barretso in the future, they’re taking over a light up dance floor near you.
“This is not a Malfunction!” just a very groovy track. Perfect song to toss in to those early or late night sets when the crowd starts-a-talkin’ with their hips.
Funky fresh! All of this new grum is really giving me the heebee-geebies. Here’s the video to his new single “Can’t Shake this feeling.” Its out may 3rd directed by the General assembly and produced by TownHall.

In the next ten, twenty years or so, when we decide to trade in our skinny jeans and fixed gears for a mortgage and a BMW, which songs are we going to revisit in outdated formats to remind us of our youth? In the same way that younger generations continue to fall in love with the likes of Led Zeppelin and The Rolling Stones, whose music from this generation will be rediscovered by the next? As bangers come and bangers go, funky bass and sparkly synths make this classic collaboration from Fred Falke and Miami Horror as timeless as it gets. “Embrace” is one track that I hope sees plays beyond the end of a great decade in music.

Think: steam-powered tin robot doing the robot. Now listen to this song.
