It’s hard to believe that September is now upon us. The summer here in the Northern Hemisphere is coming to a slow-rolling close, but September also brings along Insomniac’s Nocturnal Wonderland — a spectacle of an experience located here in Southern California at the NOS Events Center in San Bernardino. This year, GDD™ has teamed up with Insomniac and our friends at Vagabond to curate the lineup for the WIDE AWAKE Art Car which is fully equipped with a mobile Funktion One sound system and will be roaming about the festival grounds on Friday the 21st. Vagabond’s Ahh-G has put together a mix to portray the vibe we’ll be going with as we roll around the NOS Center, and he’s included some exclusive, unreleased new material from the likes of Prince Club, Urulu, Astronomar, and more. Make sure to pick up your tickets to the festival here, and snag this mix and tracklist after the jump. Continue Reading

LA’s young gun and GDD familiar URULU has just released ‘The Untitleds’ EP for absolutely FREE. The rising producer has recently become apart of Faceless management, alongside Prince Club, Poupon and Meech. As a token of his gratitude to listeners, he presents this to you: “3 singles, all unreleased and previously unheard of, kept in the depths of my hard-drive until now. Enjoy, and thanks for following.”
Yesterday, Them Jeans graciously gave away his remix for Prince Club’s “Fruit Boots” on SoundCloud. Them Jeans presents his take on the already dance-floor ready track which includes the same spliced vocals and piano on the original, but also more of a drop after the intro, some added textures, as well as a bouncier and full-bodied bassline. See which version you like better and check out PIE Artists to stay up to date with artists that you should know about if you don’t already.
Ever since The Weeknd started sexin’ up the scene back in March, I’ve been on the lookout for some proper, well done remixes/edits of any of The Weeknd’s tracks off their (his) album “House of Balloons”. After months on the prowl, it looks like someone finally delivered the goods…a solid house edit that maintains the sexy late night/early morning vibe of the original while giving the tune a pulse. And who better to deliver the goods than GDD’s favorite Canadian combo, Max & Zach, aka Prince Club.
