LIL DEATH, the distopia-done-right party that every cyberpunk in LA has darkly adored is coming to Miami this week, with a stacked lineup full of longtime GDD favorites. Our friends The Overthrow, Trouble & Bass, and Paris’ Bromance Records are all involved to bring you a very special night of Tech Noir vibes straight out of Gotham, with a very special guest.
What’s more? All this can be yours for a night with one free RSVP.
After recently winning Dim Mak’s Autoerotique WTF Remix contest, the Miami native and Overthrow brethren Damaged Goods jumped right back on the chains and took on Kaskade‘s newest single “LLOVE”. For those who love the melodic tones of the original but wanted it rougher on the edges – this version takes an anthemic build up and drops you straight into a hard hitting pipeline. Eat your heart out.
For the past 6 months, The Overthrow Collective and I have been performing this sort of experimental party in Downtown LA called Lil Death. The project is essentially a weekly event centered around a very specific tech-noir sound that we like to call “Gotham Wave.” To tantalize your curiosity, I’ve just released version 2.0 of our Lil Death mix series with influences of post-punk, industrial, french techno, and witch house.
Lil Death’s slogans “Long Live the new Flesh” draws it’s inspirations from the post-physical reality that we get closer to ever day. This eclectic mix is electronic and organic sound is an homage to the ever wavering struggle we have with totally accepting this new prosthetic digital nervous system that has begin to connect us all.
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:

A few months ago, two sleep-deprived Italians named Fare Soldi showed up at my door-step. I was going out of town for a show and my manager called an hour before asking if they could crash at my apartment. Knowing that I’ll one day be in their shoes down the road, I welcomed them in. Fare Soldi makes really fun dance music, and today they’re giving away their remix of Spinstyles‘ track No Regrets, which was released today on Overthrow Music Authority. The other track on Spinstyles’ EP called Quick Flick features fellow Kansas City badboy Tech N9ne. Grab the EP here on Beatport.
After barely surviving a week at the LA GDD penthouse, I had to get back to work and curate a mix for my Friday night residency at Arkadia in Miami. Arkadia is quickly becoming one of the premier house music venues in Miami, and I’m stoked to be on board. Tonight I’ll be warming up for EDX, along with a special guest from the West Coast who has been known to start some riots. For more info about upcoming events or ticket sales, click HERE.
Overthrow and Deathface have a thick as blood releationship, literally. The first time I met him in Miami a few years ago, we killed a girl on stage. Since then, he’s branded his own style of demonic bass music, and he was commissioned to do the second chapter of the Lil Death mixtape series. However, instead of an hour of dubstep, Deathface serves up 58 minutes of warehouse techno. If after listening to the mix you feel inclined to lurk into the night, he’ll be playing at Lil Death tonight. More info here.
Colorado underground hip-hop and all around bass producer Timeline has just released an EP on Overthrow Music Authority. The three track dubstep EP is filled with classic samples and some beautiful melodies that separates his sound from a lot of the noise that is now commonly associated with the genre. He gave us an exclusive track called ‘Somebody’, which is a groovy Hospital Recs inspired DnB tune that’s been graciously stuck in my head for the better part of this week. Purchase the EP on Beatport.
