We’ve made it to the better side of the week, and that calls for a reward. Continuing on our highlight of the GDD x Sweat It Out! WMC showcase to come, we bring a free download from the Sydney native and Sweat representative Danny T. With a very special rework of AlunaGeorge‘s haunting beautiful “Outlines”, Danny pushes deeper vibes into freak mode with this one. Fans of his Anna Lunoe Remix or Le Youth Remix (also below) with be ALL OVER THIS. Listen and grab it for free!
Perseus and his French Express label mates are no strangers to our weekly party in Miami, and the man in charge of the dynamic pack is back on the carpet at Bardot tonight alongside the trio of residents. After storming onto the scene late in 2011, the French Express name has found respect in the underground markets while also having that cross-over appeal that’s seemingly difficult to accomplish. Pre-sale tickets for tonight’s event are still available here. Continue Reading
In celebration of reaching 5k fans on facebook, our GDD familiar Craig Williams is finally giving away his secret heater ‘Miami’ on his soundcloud. A master of his craft, this original is a full fledge techno trip with a barrage of crashing tribal drums and a haunting vocal sample. The outcome is a huge club track for the late night sets… grab it below!
Para One is a busy dude with many musical talents: from having dipped in the honey pot of the rap scene a variety of times (his work with French group TTC, production creds on A$AP Rocky’s “Wild For The Night”) to being a part of his own label (Marble, with Teki Latex and Bobmo). After a well-regarded release of his track “Passion” last year, Para One is back with a bigger, badder version thanks to the vocal talents of none other than Cam’Ron. As a sidenote, I can’t write or think about Cam’Ron without seeing this picture in my head, so here. #killuh
I spoke to Para One yesterday just before his trek to the US to tour starting in Miami, where I’m sure inevitably we’ll run into each other. Another sidenote, a definite party to check out that we’ll be at and Para One will be playing at is Lil Death’s NYC vs Paris this Friday. So read on about what Para One had to say after the jump, and as for myself I hope to see many of you out and about!
Portugal’s maestro of deeply tinged disco will be gracing the carpet at Bardot tomorrow night for our monthly GDD showcase. After putting out his mind-bending edit of Nicolas Jaar’s And I Say a few months ago, he’s followed it up with some magical remixes of Poland’s Kamp! and fellow Portuguese artist Moullinex, both of which are out now via Discotexas. Tickets for the show are available here.
Daedelus has always been a champion of pushing unique live presentations, and his Magical Properties tours are a wonderful platform with which to showcase both his amazing live show and the wonderful talent he chooses to bring on board. This time he’s joined by the likes of “the remix Ryan Gosling” Ryan Hemsworth and Body High boss Samo Sound Boy for a 6 week tour, with pop-up support from Salva, Shlohmo, and Two Fresh.
I spoke with Samo Sound Boy just as the weekend was approaching about the tour and what’s up in his world and the Body High world. Samo’s a really great dude who I’m super pleased to see hopping on the Magical Properties tour. Go peep our conversation after the jump, where we talk about California weather, how to party in Miami, studio essentials, and more:
• SPIN Magazine halts print publication
• Visionquest launch 13
• Benoit and Sergio prepare Hot Creations EP
• Miami’s Mansion Nightclub apologizes for cutting DJ Shadow‘s set short
• Machinedrum: “There’s a lack of underground in the USA but I’m not giving up on it”
While Miami is most notorious for the madness that occurs every March for WMC and Ultra Music Festival, thousands of art and music lovers from across the world converge in the beginning of December for Art Basel. We kicked things off in style last night at our weekly Slap & Tickle party at the beloved Electric Pickle with LA’s Rick Rude, and are gearing up for a massive evening tomorrow night at one of Miami’s newest venues, The Garage. The rising UK duo Bondax will be preforming an exclusive Art Basel set alongside Body High label boss Samo Sound Boy. The best part about this event is that its FREE, as long as you head over to the Slap & Tickle page and send us your names before 6pm tomorrow. To get you in the mood, check out the latest Slap & Tickle promo mix.
Miami is in for a magical treat on Halloween night. Heralded as the DJ’s DJ, the dance floor maestro, and the mixtape assassin, The Magician has quickly taken the title of the godfather of good times. His acclaimed Magic Tape mix series grew from an audience of select bloggers and fans who were aware of his departure from Aeroplane, to a massive international group of listeners just wanting to bask in the glory of his tropical aura. Tickets for this Magical Edition of Slap & Tickle at Bardot are still available for $20. For more information about the event, click here.
