In August, we threw a remix competition in conjunction with the release of Booth, the debut EP from Metamimetic artist and GDD homie, Sam Wilkes. We received a grip of entries, and have thoroughly enjoyed listening to them all – there were some really sick submissions, but there could only be one winner. Big ups to DJ Avedon, an LA-based New Yorker, whose Dutch House rendition of the Wilkes track really stood out among some stiff competition:

Other notable mentions go to Dreamweaver for his disco-house take on the track, and the innovative tropical fidget of Tiny Giant, whose remix was already featured on Pelski last month:

If you remember back to a time on le hypemachine before the popular charts were invaded by shitty kid cudi mashups, then you might remember a trio called DiscoTech that would regularly be seen at the top with smashing remixes. After a hiatus, they’ve returned with a club-ready EP titled ‘Devestating’, which they’ve sent over fo’ free, so you poor ass college kids can go save your money for a tallboy of PBR for after class. They also sent along the acapella to your future girlfriend’s favorite track ‘IMMIA’, so all you budding producers out there without the tight connects can get to working, because I’ll be posting the top three remixes right here. Send all entrances to jonahdancesdirty@gmail.com and go tell DiscoTech how you burned the soles of your fav disco shoes on their twitter

ATL’s freshest kids from White Light recs just sent over an exclusive joint called “White Girls”, which matches their talent for rapping over an infectious b-more inspired bassline with a hint of southern swag. We here at GDD thought it to be a great idea to collab with White Light to bring you our first remix competition after they said that AC Slater, Klever, and others are going to be working on it, so we figured why not give our faithful readers a shot at the big leagues. While official rules/prizes/etc have not been established, I have the acappella so if you’re really really eager to get to work, shoot me an email at troykurtz@mac.com
