The hip-hop influenced electronica masterminds from Canada, Zeds Dead, released a majestic remix of Marina & The Diamonds’ hit song “Lies.” After closing 2012 with an eclectic “Holiday Mix” as a gift to their loyal fans, they return to begin another massive new year in proper form.
Their remix of “Lies” draws vocals and melodic elements from the original and adds a gritty dubstep twist along with lush pads. Listen/download below and ♥ on the Hype Machine.
Following a massive run on his Stay Forever tour through North America, New Zealand, and Australia, Kastle finds the time to give back to his fans with an impressively original garage-infused deep house gem, “Baby, Keep It Real.” 2013 seems to be very promising for the San Francisco resident as he’s been working on his highly-anticipated debut album as well as establishing his record label, Symbols, as one of the premier outlets for forward-thinking electronic music. Despite his busy schedule, Kastle keeps it real and provides a plethora of sounds to help you enjoy the holiday season to the fullest. Enjoy this track, indulge in the bonuses after the jump, and feel free to congratulate him on making the iTunes’ Electronic Best Of 2012 list with his Stay Forever EP.
Last week, Pierce Fulton posted this remix of Mutemath’s “In No Time” and it’s a real change of pace. Slower than Pierce’s past work, the remix is a sublime combination of spacious vocals, subtle drums and melodic synths with an almost chime-like quality. This is one of those tracks that just makes me feel like everything is right with the world, and a perfect fit for late-night lairs or early morning chill sesh’s, grab it below!
To celebrate the 4th day of our GDD advent calendar, we’ve teamed up with Wooha! Records to bring you a huge exclusive from dutch duo Mightyfools. The recent release of their BITCHES EP on Wooha has gained massive support from the likes of Steve Aoki, Hardwell, Skream & Benga, and The Partysquad. However, they’ve been keeping a VIP trap remix to themselves… UNTIL TODAY – for us to give to you!
How about that butt? Nice, eh? Make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside? Now wouldn’t it be nice to have some aural accompaniment to increase said feelings of warmness and/or fuzziness? That’s what we’re here for, ladies and gents. Toks and myself coming through your speakers with some sexy jams to get you in the mood for some crisper air, cooler winds, and leaves with pretty colors or something like that (I don’t know what autumn is like, we fucking live in LA). Get it after the jump!
It only takes hours before the newest popular single gets bombarded with bootleg remixes and spreads like wild fire across the blogosphere. The unique recreations however, are always worth the wait. Our friend and GDD familiar Craig Williams had something to prove towards Tyga’s “Rack City” – fashioning a club worthy ghetto-tech spin on the popularized hip-hop anthem.
The end product is pure gold, straying away from overdone bootleg formula and creating his own monster. We’ve teamed up with Craig Williams to give it away for FREE, so grab it below and let the system crank.

One of my favorite groups in the trap music realm, Keys N Krates, have revitalized Zedd‘s once progressive house tune, “Follow You Down,” in bass heavy Southern hip-hop fashion. By taking a few elements from the original track, dropping the BPM, and applying their own originative flare and sound, they’ve successfully crafted a stellar floor filler remix.
Keys N Krates have quite the schedule ahead of them as they will be embarking on a Winter tour starting November 1st running through December 31st. Also, they’ve been working diligently on a new EP that is set to drop in the new year. Listen/Download this remix, see if they’re playing in a city near you, and be on the look out for announcements about their new EP!

I’m sure we can all agree on the respect and appreciation of artists that are pioneering new frontiers in dance music. My latest music discovery, a visionary rising star from Isreal that goes by the name Maor Levi, is doing just that. The lines between genres continue to blur, and Maor is responsible for taking trance on the ride of a lifetime by incorporating a much heavier dubstep and electro-influenced style fit for massive main stage sound systems. With support from the likes of Above & Beyond, Armin van Buuren, Arty, and Mark Knight, among many others, it’s clear that we have something truly special on our hands. Hear what Maor can do for yourself, grab the free download below, and check out two other stellar remixes after the jump. Also, be on the look out for the start of his new monthly podcast, “MOAR Bass.”
Last Saturday, the usual decadent Los Angeles debauchery was put on hold as The Do LaB brought a stellar lineup of Michael Menert, Phutureprimitive, Break Science, and Shpongle to the historic Hollywood Palladium. It was a night that turned out to be an enlightening journey accompanied by an incredible array of music that morphed and transformed perceptions of electronic music’s “status quo.” Read the full details after the jump…
Our boy Valentino Khan just released his official remix for Kreayshawn’s “Go Hard” and boy is it a monster. If you hadn’t already heard this newest single by the pop ratchet queen, VK runs this one through the buzz saw and creates moombahcore at its grittiest – or as he calls ‘Mid Tempo New Orleans Techno Moombahton’. Oh yeah, its another FREE download on his soundcloud. Have at it!
