Free Willy Wednesdays are back for 2013! Willy Joy and Gotta Dance Dirty are starting your year off right by giving you a brand new exclusive tune from Willy every Wednesday in January…for free!
This week brings one of the biggest dance tunes of the moment into Willy’s sights. Porter Robinson and Mat Zo‘s “Easy” gets a total makeover from the ground up. The sample sounds more wistful here, but when Willy’s remix drops, the tune turns into pure bliss. Giant waves of bass wash up against slippery synths and sharp percussion. As with Porter and Mat’s original, Willy’s remix has paid a lot of attention to detail. This sounds equally huge in a big club or in your ipod headphones. Enjoy!

After just being featured in our guest mix series last week, JackLNDN has given us a track from his private collection to give out to you lucky GDD™ readers. If you didn’t already hear his edit of Porter Robinson‘s “Language” in his guest mix, you can expect a chopped and screwed, funky fresh disco take on the progressive house hit. Jack always does an excellent job at putting tracks in his own context, and this edit is just more evidence proving that fact. This is the beginning of a JackLNDN‘s weekly track premiere schedule, so be on the look out for these exclusives on the next couple of Tuesdays to come. Show support with a ♥ on the Hype Machine!

As some of you may or may not know, we’ve started up a new project here at GDD™, bringing in a video element to the brand called GDD.tv. Our team (big shout out to Alex, Laura D + KMOC) was hard at work out in Las Vegas a couple weeks ago; locking down interviews with some of the scene’s best musicians that were out in the desert for the biggest dance music festival in North America. Our brilliant videographer, Alexander Jacob, has put together a teaser video of some of the artists that we had the pleasure of chatting with, so have a quick watch and keep an eye out for the full interviews to surface in the near future!

About an hour ago Electro wunderkind and GDD™ fav Porter Robinson posted on his Facebook that he’d be giving away one of his patented live edits once the post reached 400 shares. Those edits, until now, have been reserved only for him and those witnessing one of his sets in the flesh.
20 mins later, the post had well exceeded its goal thanks to his nearly 180,000 fans. I’ve heard the balloting was neck and neck, so Team Porter has decided to release all four edits for free! Just in time for one of the biggest weekends in Electronic Dance Music.
