GDD™ favorite and ultimate legend, Green Velvet, has released his 7th studio album as Green Velvet today on his own Relief Records, boasting 13 new collaborations with established and budding talent. Guys like Riva Starr, Harvard Bass, Oliver $, and our mate Craig Williams lend their expertise to the LP in addition to new names like Boooox, Saso Recyd, and Zcarab, who all won their way into the studio with Curtis through a worldwide production contest.
Chicago House, Techno, and Acid are all prevalent in Unshakable, calling upon lasting influences while injecting new sounds for an incredibly balanced record. More than 20 years after “Coffee Pot,” Green Velvet proves his relevance without fail. What cannot be shaken will remain…

Coming off a huge tour w/ Zedd and Alex Metric, the LA rising duo Oliver follow up their finely tuned Mechanical EP with an all-star remix collection that casts their already-diverse originals in a stunning new light. Kicking off with a stomping, fan favorite mix of “Night Is On My Mind” by festival king Dillon Francis, Mechanical Remixes kicks into even higher gear with Nom De Strip‘s big room take on “Control,” before pulling a moody left turn with Tchami‘s bouncing funky house version of “MYB,” and closing out strong with a high energy remix of “Mechanical” by new young producer Values. Machine music on all levels!

Oliver made their Fool’s Gold Records debut back in January with the 4-track EP, Mechanical, which truly illuminated the diversity of the duo’s production. Not to be labeled as Nu Disco DJs, Oliver included the late-night, 100BPM mover, “Night Is On My Mind,” on the release, featuring pitched down vocals and a heaviness that many would deem somewhat uncharacteristic of the talented producers. Over 6 months later, the tune has been given a video treatment, and I must say, it’s absolutely brilliant. I’ll give you a few keywords that should tickle your fancy — LA Gear, mobile rave station, blonde in heels, and ass. √+ (obviously)
From living with no hot water or cell phone after a commercially unsuccessful first album to being named Rolling Stone’s “Best Secret Weapon” in 2011, writing eight #1 singles in the year alone, Bonnie McKee‘s career appears to be taking on new direction. As she bursts into the pop music scene for round two, business mixes with pleasure as her boyfriend Oligee (1/2 of Oliver) teams up with his musical other half, U-Tern, to remix her hit single, “American Girl.” The product of this talented power couple is a club anthem set to have you shuffling at the dance breaks and belting the lyrics when the chorus hits. The original by McKee is available to purchase on iTunes.

Our LA friends Oliver and Thee Mike B did a funky new update on the Blondie classic “Heart Of Glass”, paying homage to the golden tune and also not a bad way to groove into the summer vibes… here’s what they had to say:
“We wanted to give something away when we hit 10K on Twitter. This one is for all the fans and DJs that have supported us, we love you! This is a record that we grew up with as children so we wanted to keep it classic, and groovy. Hope you enjoy it!”
