Yesterday, we premiered the unreleased Black Cards remix of synthpoppers, Cobra Starship, as a teaser to the first mixtape release from the new Pete Wentz + Spencer Peterson project. Over the past 24 hours, it’s been extremely well-received, with thousands of ears on it already, and today we are happy to unleash the full club-thumping mixtape from Black Cards that is Up The Anti | Volume 1. The new duo has included a multitude of good tunage in this first mix, including big time tracks from Afrojack to Porter Robinson to Dillon Francis, as well as a handful of remixes of their own.

October 8th marks a monumental event with some of the absolute biggest names in electronic music descending upon Southern California all in the same day. The Club Life College Invasion tour featuring Tiesto, Diplo (just added), Dada Life, & Porter Robinson is coming to the Home Depot Center. A mix of thoroughly established veterans and impressive young talent makes this a must-see show. There are discount tickets for students (w/ ID), so for all of you young ones, there really is no excuse not to go. Regardless, I’d grab a ticket now before it’s too late!

Over the past year, Porter Robinson has grown to be synonymous with the word “prodigy” and he has become a sort of phenomenon in the electronic music community. Known for his hard electro-house, Porter has skyrocketed in popularity and I believe it’s only a matter of time before he is ranked as one of the world’s Top 100 DJ’s. It’s interesting to see how technology plays such a large role in the music industry today with the ease of production that allows younger artists to make professional music, and also as a promotional tool with social media, music blogs, and simply, the virtual inter-connectedness that we share and we are able to take advantage of. Anyway, Porter‘s debut release, the Spitfire EP, will be dropping this Tuesday the 13th on Skrillex’s new label, OWSLA. As if the lines of genres weren’t getting blurred enough already, you can expect a creative mix of dubstep, electro-house, progressive house, and even some moombahton, all packed into individual tracks. The release also includes heavy remixes from Knife Party, Mikkas, Downlink, SkisM, and Kill The Noise. Go stream it exclusively on Grooveshark (see link below) and be sure to purchase it Tuesday on Beatport! Check here to see if Porter will be coming to your town this Fall on Tiësto’s College Invasion tour.
For our thirty-sixth edition of the infamous DIRT, we bring you a top 12 chart of some of the best tracks right now in electronic music from pretty much across the board. Though they all share a common dirty-ness to them, we chose these tracks for unique reasons – and what better way to convey that then to charm you with our personal opinion on why you should direct yourself to the download link immediately (the best way we know how to).
drink up dirty dancers…
• Felix Cartal & Keatch – Lazy Bird (Original Mix) √+
I’ve literally waited over a year for this track to be released, and for it to have stayed locked away until just a week ago is a marvel in its own. We all know that Felix Cartal has caught our attention once again with his recent productions, but the help of Belgium-based Keatch makes their collaborative EP’s Solar and now Animals unmatchable. Grab this in 192 and do yourself a solid and purchase the full EP here.
• Swanky Tunes & Hard Rock Sofa – Feedback (Original Mix) √+
This summer wherever you are in festival mode, you’re gonna hear headliners from the main stage (you should know who) playing this massive collaboration between big room track kings Swanky Tunes and Hard Rock Sofa. This one also has the same riff as Daft Punk’s ‘Rollin & Scratchin’ – but takes it to a level suitable for crowds in the 25,000+ category. BIG.
• In Flagranti – Worse For Wear (Punks Jump Up Remix) √+
The first time I heard this in the Light Year Summer Mix, I played the mix over and over just because of this track. The howling bass line behind the drums, claps and cowbells (with a hint of dirty sax) turn the original vocal into a drunken disco fire-starter.
• DJ Fresh – Louder (Club Mix) √+
Even though I don’t play out dubstep (or bass music for that matter) in my sets, I still respect it very much because of anthems like this one. This track is special however because of the newly found sound of drum & bass hero DJ Fresh. Groundbreaking tune, a MUST even if you don’t care for dubstep. Grab this 192, but get serious with the 320 here.
• Julio Bashmore – Battle For Middle You √+
This officially came out at the very start of this year, but I haven’t been able to stop playing it out in my sets, in my car, or any where I can feel some low end with this baby. Julio Bashmore creates a love child with funk, soul and bass driven rhythm. In fact, the lyrics in the tune actually ring true because they definitely make me wanna get up, stomp my feet, and get down.
• Kry Wolf – 3001 (Original Mix) √+
AC Slater struck gold when he discovered Kry Wolf and signed him to his Party Like Us label. His production flies across the board, but this track is titled ’3001′ because it is takes you that far ahead in time to the future of the drop. Let this one grow on you, it’s the best kind of WEIRD you could ask for.
• CSS – Hit Me Like a Rock (Dillon Francis Remix)
Another killer free tune from Mr.Francis. Radio rips have been floating around for awhile, but it was finally released this past week.
DRUM & BASS
• Botnek – Jerpa (Botnek Drum & Bass Remix)
An uncommon Drum & Bass remix from this up and coming Canadian Duo. If you like this track, check out the guest Dirt they did a few weeks back for some more major tunes. They are definitely a group to watch.
• Tittsworth & Alvin Risk – Pendejas
Great new track from two of Washington DC’s best. More along the lines of moombahcore. If you dig artists like Munchi & Dillon Francis you will love this track.
• Lady Gaga – The Edge of Glory (Porter Robinson Club Mix)
I am usually not a huge fan of any of the new pop electro house that has been going around these days. But I must admit, I really like this track. The drop in the middle is worth the download!
• The Dirt #36 – ///BONES & KMOC.zip (all 12 tracks!)
