Okay so here’s what we know:

Gérard de la Disco is (was?) allegedly a “disco legend” who’s tracks are just now surfacing. His remix of Giorgio Moroder‘s classic, “From Here to Eternity” has been entered in this contest with his consent. Moroder is a pioneer and godfather of electronic music and disco; the original is of course a timeless masterpiece.  But you already knew that.  Gérard, on the other hand?  Who knows.  Fun story?  Actual legend?  No idea.  The individual who sent me this did a good job of being equally mysterious.  In any event, listen, enjoy, and be sure to vote for it in the remix competition.  If the track does well in this contest, we’ve been told to stay tuned for more music from Gérard as more of his body of work begins to see the light of day (there is more).

Our good buddies and Dim Mak‘s own Matzerath and Bais Haus are taking on Lollapalooza’s contest via do312.com and bringing analog back into swing of EDM production. The two DJs rip into San Diego rockers Delta Spirit’s new single “California”, transforming the indie rock piece into a Belgian Techno infused track. Their remix steps up to the plate with an arsenal of sonic tricks similar to that of producers Mumbai Science, Gesaffelstein, and Junior. Check it out below, and help them get to play at Lollapalooza!

CONTEST DETAILS:


Joachim Garraud & Alesia‘s ‘Nox’ is the upcoming second single from their Hillside West EP due out on Dim Mak Records in April. The sound of ‘Nox’ is unlike anything Joachim has ever released before — tying in lighthearted piano riffs at the beginning of the track with monstrous, snarling Dubstep elements that pushed me back in my chair a bit. In coincidence with the release of ‘Nox’ on Beatport on April 24th, a remix competition has been announced with some epic prizes from Pioneer, Serato, WeSC, and more.
