Slap & Tickle resident DJ Santiago Caballero delivers an extremely tasty first installment of his Sanduguera mix series. Clearly inspired by the late nights that we’ve spent manning the decks together at Miami’s infamous Electric Pickle, his mix delivers a dollop of deep basslines and wondrous house tunes. For those of you in Miami this Halloween, you can catch Santi warming up for The Magician on October 31st at Bardot. Click here for more info.
Now, I don’t usually post unless something really strikes my fancy. Even more rare still will a mix inspire me to words. And the best part? It’s GDD’s very own Troy Kurtz today, absolutely nailing it with this mix he did with Panic Bomber, the first installment in their “Berlin Breeze” mix series. I’ve been consistently more and more impressed with what TK and Panic Bomber have been putting out of Miami since their deeper-than debut Never Sleeping. Life is good when it’s summertime and you can sit back and watch your colleagues and best friends become your favorite DJs in the world.
Since launching Slap & Tickle 15 weeks ago at the Electric Pickle in Miami, we’re throwing the biggest event yet on July 3rd with a 12 hour marathon of tunes. We’ve teamed up with SAFE to bring in the legendary house producer/DJ Danny Howells (Dig Deeper/London) who has confirmed that he’ll be playing upstairs for at least five hours. Outside, we’ve organized live performances from Kurtz & Bomber, Le Blorr, and Millionyoung. In support will be a supreme line-up of all the Slap & Tickle guests from the last few months. We’re opening doors at 5pm with a BBQ and free beer until 8pm, so get your 4th of July celebrations started early. For more info, click HERE.
The first warm kisses of summer’s lips are upon us, and we’re releasing the tension in style on Thursday at Bardot in Miami. French Express bossman and nouveau-tropical wunderboy Perseus cruises down with label mate Moon Boots for their first Magic City appearance alongside Pirate Stereo and myself. Doors swing wide at 10pm and pre-sale tickets are available for $12 online. Here’s a little taste of Moon Boot’s brand new tune ‘Monsoon Season’ that is forthcoming on Deep & Disco Records July 9th.
A few months ago, GDD launched the first Slap & Tickle at Miami’s favorite underground dance venue The Electric Pickle. Every Tuesday, the lure of $2 tequila shots and deep grooves swept through the city and manifested itself into one steamy dance party. Tomorrow night, we pick up the pace with Australian headliner BENI. Affiliated with Modular and Bang Gang imprints, his unique brand of house and techno was a shoe-in for our debut headliner. We kick things off tomorrow at 10pm with residents Troy Kurtz, Pirate Stereo, and Santiago Cabellero. Tickets will be $10 at the door. Click here for more info.
It’s an age-old illness of the mind. Once the clock strikes March, there’s only one thing on our minds here at GDD™ and that one thing never seems to disappoint. We’re talkin’ MIAMI. This year Troy Kurtz, jonahberry, BONES, and burn unit made their way down to the Magic City for Electronic Music’s annual non-vacation vacation. Here’s some of the best of what we caught during the week. Continue Reading
In just a few days, thousands of vagabond partiers will flock onto the shores of Miami eager to experience the glorious week long extravaganza that we call WMC. In between yacht parties and after-hours sets, Gotta Dance Dirty, along with Overthrow, Embrace, and Karma Loop, will be presenting Pyramid Club Miami at Mamushka’s on March 22, featuring Tensnake, Fred Falke, Treasure Fingers + more. It’s been a few years since I fell in love with Tensnake’s tropical anthem ‘Coma Cat‘, and as this will be his first trip to Miami, I’m extremely excited to see him perform. The entire line-up:

In trying to keep up with the boys out in LA, I’ve been busy in trying to organize more GDD events in Miami. Our weekly Slap & Tickle party on Tuesday’s at Electric Pickle has become quite a hot little dance party (maybe in part to $2 tequila shots) that’s encouraged me to get some more events happening. On Thursday, GDD teams up with the good folks at Poplife, Super Music Group, and Grand Central to bring you two rooms of good vibes. Amtrac and Brass Knuckles will be headlining the main room, and I’ll be headlining upstairs in The Garret, debuting a bunch of new stuff I’ve been trying to finish before WMC. The show is 21+ and starts at 11pm. Pick up pre-sale tickets here.
We’re proud to announce that GDD has teamed up with The Electric Pickle in Miami to launch our weekly Tuesday night party called Slap & Tickle, which launches tomorrow night at 11pm. The Electric Pickle is undoubtedly the premier venue in Miami for underground dance music (just check out their WMC line-up) and we are extremely stoked to breathe some life back in the Miami weeknight party circuit. Check out the promo mixes that residents Pirate Stereo, Santiago Caballero, and myself have curated. We look forward to meeting our MIA GDD fam tomorrow (PS NO COVER!)
