After asking readers last week to define ‘banger’ and ‘mixtape’, let’s kick off the week and ask the audience,
What’s the difference between a cover and a remix?
I’ve picked the following three jams to help spark some discussion.
Honestly, no surprises here but a solid remix nonetheless.

Recently I’ve been listening to a lotta Grum, and in honor of Grum, i have been keeping it grimey. Its imperative that we all go showerless, wear the same briefs from the dirty dancing night before, and same funky socks to get the most out of this music. Dedication is key for anything worth while in life. Grum is from Leeds and therefore doesn’t make it over to north america much, but if you happen to be abroad and stumble upon a tour date, i highly suggest you take the time to check it out. Believe me, the tunes will take you where you want to go!
And here come the tunes…
• Grum – Heartbeats (Extended Mix) (link removed by request)
I figured since we are on the verge of a new Chromeo album, and the first single is quite a goodie (bit darker than Fancy Footwork, but with all the groove), i’d throw it in for ya…lemme know what you think!

Nu-disco fans rejoice! Back in April, we featured remixes from the talented duo of Anthony Ross and Mezzir. If you liked their remix of Franz Ferdinand’s “Ulysses”, you’re going to fall in love with San Diego-based Grey Ghost, Anthony Ross’ new side project. Grey Ghost’s carefully crafted arpeggios and phasers set from stun to kill are sure to please the fans of French veterans Fred Falke and Lifelike. Gotta Dance Dirty™ is proud to present exclusive Grey Ghost remixes of Felix da Housecat’s new single, “We All Wanna Be Prince”, and Passion Pit’s “The Reeling”.
p.s. Thanks to the staff of El Dorado, Villains, and especially DJ Groundfloor for showing me such a good time last night in San Diego. Cheers!
