For some reason or another, over the years most holidays that otherwise have a rather solemn connotation have merely become another day off from school/work to drink and bask in the sun in the good ol’ United States of T&A. While I feel compelled to advise you to take a minute to reflect on what Memorial Day really is all about, who are we at GDD™ to break with tradition. Hell, I know we’ll all be poolside ourselves with a cocktail or twelve in our system.
So when you’re getting drunk shaking your bum at the pool over this three-day weekend, cue up this special guest mix offered up by our Canadian homie and frequent Diplo collaborator Grandtheft. It’s stacked full of Grandtheft originals, edits, and remixes, as well as a bevy of GDD™ friends and favorites, including Cashmere Cat, RL Grime, Willy Joy, Skream, Major Lazer, Kendrick Lamar and more. With 33 tracks packed into a one-hour show you know the good vibes will keep on comin’.
Best part about it: 1. It’s free to download, and 2. It’s uncensored! Scroll over the image above to download, and get the tracklist after the jump!
Kicking off his High Beams US tour this month, our two-faced GDD fav RL Grime just released a giveaway remix for Chief Keef’s “Love Sosa” for FREE download via The Fader to celebrate his favorite rap song of last year. Big horns and a major layered clap make this one another hood anthem for Henry in the books. Hurry and grab it fast, it won’t be available for long!
Well what originally started as entirely a joke between young Three Wise & myself quickly escalated into one of the most popular posts on GottaDanceDirty…. and for that we’d like to thank SEXY DJs and the apparent thousands of people who want to know who they are. Any way, we’re back & although there’ll be slightly less pretty pictures for you to look at this week there’s definitely no shortage of sexy jams. — Laura.
It’s been a journey. Since its inception in the summer of 2010, our longest lasting weekly feature, The Dirt, has brought a staggering amount of free music to the masses, and we’re proud to still be here 100 editions and 100 Dirt Babes in the books. It’s a tough feat to get these tracks together each week (probably why we have some gaps in the mix here and there, apologies), but it’s been an amazing experience sharing music with all of you, which, of course, is the main reason why we’re here.
We wanted to put together something special for the centennial episode, so 11 of our writers have included 2 songs each — one from one of the 99 past Dirts that we’ve posted and any other song that we felt was exceptional enough to make the cut of such an outstanding post. We hope you enjoy these as much as we enjoyed putting them together. Here’s to another 100. Continue Reading
RL Grime has the trillest costume on the block today with his † HALLOWEEN MIX 2012 †, with the GoosebumperRL Stine himself co-signing on a creepy intro for the thing. Haunted-ass trap chopped up with creepy goodies galore… and “CLIQCLIQ- ??????” Huge. I’m trying to get real scared and keeping this on repeat for a couple hours.
Your favorite trap-star has given back to the people again. The NYC/LA transplant RL Grime has released another FREE heater that (as the vocals ring true) will flood the block with alarming sirens that carry a rough neighborhood of bass. You know the drill – go show our boy some luv and LIKE his page to grab the DL. Need we say… another certified hood classic? √+
The Dirt #78 is all wrapped up and ready to go courtesy of aRod + Steven N. Ewald. This week’s Dirt brings you Summertime in various ways. While the aRod selections may be better served during the day while tannin’ that ass, Mr. Ewald’s tracks take you deep into the Summer night as you’re shakin’ + slappin’ that ass. It’s a soundtrack fitting for how your Summer days and nights should unfold. Cocktailing, beach frolicking + making out in the sand during the day followed by gritty, dirty, grind it out dance parties until 5am. If that sounds like your Summer agenda, then The Dirt #78 brought to you by aRod + Steven N. Ewald is just what you need.
Believe it or not, the already popular ‘Mercy‘ by Kanye West just got better. Remixed by the dark & twisted future-bass pioneers of the moment, RL Grime & Salva, this raved out Post-Apocalyptic Trap take on the single will without a doubt be a dance-floor killer this summer. Only available to stream at the moment. Enjoy!
Our boy Henry Steinway, aka Clockwork, aka Big Sleazy (I made that one up), aka RL Grime just uploaded his thugged out version of Pacha On Acid – a gift to his fans for “manufacturing issues with the patches that came with the Grapes EP.” Either way, FREE TRAP HOUSE for us. Don’t stop git it git it.
To kick things off proper for the start of madness in the desert, VERSUS this week we’ll feature some heavy artillery to get your Coachella juices flowing. Making a stop on their US Tour, the Italian bad boys Blatta & Inesha will be gracing the decks for their second time. On top of that, we have the LA debut from the NY-based hood haus sounds of RL Grime. Supporting the night will be local heroes Matzerath (Dim Mak), Bangarang, and Zach V. Whether you’re going week one, week two, or not at all, come get your festival fix and forget about Friday morning.
