In celebration of the roster addition, Jackmode is re-releasing Penner + Muder’s single ‘Another’ which originally came out in 2010 on the Wazi Wazi imprint.

Sorry for the brief Dirt hiatus folks. We’ve been all over the grid lately — Detroit, San Francisco, San Diego, Las Vegas, etc, but now we’re back on track and ready to bring you 10 tracks all for download each Thursday here on out. This week, I’ve teamed up with the youngest member of our family, Toks, for an eclectic collection of tunes that should tickle a bit of everyone’s fancy. Get into it. Continue Reading

Yolanda Be Cool – Le Bump (Round Table Knights Remix) by Round Table Knights

Beni – It’s A Bubble (Round Table Knights Remix) by Round Table Knights



The Dirt is back in action again this week with submissions from the first 2 members of Gotta Dance Dirty, jonahberry and Tropicool (aka Dr. Schlongo, aka Daddy O’Climax, aka David LaMelza). We’ve put together 10 great tracks, new and old, for your listening pleasure, so kick back, relax, and enjoy these tasty tunes with a tall frosty IPA in one hand and a naughty school girl in the other.

• Donovans – FX1 (Canblaster & Panteros666 Remix) √+
Parisian duo, Donovans, released their FX1 EP in early June on Cheap Thrills, equipped with a fantastic remix from Rynecologist and this one from Canblaster and Panteros666. I just can’t get enough of the unique sound of Canblaster. Make sure to pick up his Totem EP out on Marble now.

• Brenmar – Taking It Down (Original Mix) [Beatport] √++
Now this track was released at the end of last year, but its inclusion in ///BONES’ most recent Summer Mix has invoked a revival of this song for me. Brenmar is also one of my top producers, as his sound meshes the aggressiveness of hip hop with the smooth sensibilities of great House music. Big fan.

• Joachim Garraud – Bang Bang (Dalcan Rmx) √+
This is a throbbing remix from French producer, Dalcan, off of Joachim Garraud‘s most recent EP, Bang Bang. The legendary DJ/producer has had an extremely busy spring and summer, releasing a full lenth album, 3 EPs, a release on Toolroom‘s Ibiza 2011 compilation, and seminal sets at Ultra Music Festival and Coachella. The Frenchman will also be playing live at Lollapalooza in a collaborative set with the Jane’s Addiction rocker, Perry Farrell. Wow.

• MyKill – Falling (Original Mix) √+
MyKill is a DJ from San Francisco that makes some fantastic funky ass disco. I actually found this track on our good friend Nate’s blog a while back and got into it again just in time for summer. Head on over to MyKill’s Soundcloud for some more great groovin’ goodies.

• The 2 Bears – In My Brain Is Like A Computer (Telling Me What To Do) (Original Mix) [Beatport] √++
Raf Rundell and Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard are The 2 Bears. They make music and they wear bear costumes. Both are fantastic. Give this one a listen from their latest EP, Bear Hug.

Foreword from Tropicool:
These tunes are meant to make you infectiously dance in a unstoppable sex-craved fashion. Handle with care; both your marbles and your lady friend(s).  Stay horny my friends. (all are check plusses DUH!)

Tribal Disco
• Shindu – Happy House (Herr Styler Remix)
I was first captivated by the original in the Magician’s Magic Tape 11, only to then learn about the stellar remix package.  Herr Styler adds a very tropicool vibe showcasing tribal drums, flutes, and cowbells nestled atop a funky keys riff.  This song never ceases to make me smile, take off my clothes, or eat raw meat.  It’s the opening tune to Tropicool’s “A Turd in the Punch Bowl” mix.

Tropical Disco Funk
• Beni – It’s a Bubble (Round Table Knights Remix)
Everything we love from Round Table Knights has been eclipsed by their newest remix of Beni‘s “It’s a Bubble”.  Steel drums, Funky bubble sounds, and an infectious rhythm disco that leads me to believe I have restless leg syndrome.  Get creepy, and don’t go home at night.  “Hey street walker!”

Sexy Funky House
• Telonius – Last Night (Extended Club Version)
Telonius is a very sexual creature.  Listen to the lyrics; live the music video.  He has inseminated an incredible single here that’s dancefloor, afterhours, and bedroom ready, all hot and bothered.  Fucking element of sexy house, funk, and disco all in one has truly created an infectious, jean-tightening, jam!

Nudisco Glory
• Mighty Mouse – Between the Pavement and the Stars (Edwin Van Cleef Remix)
We can always expect pure genius when a song drops under the knife of Edwin Van Cleef or is presented live by the Mightiest of the Mouses.  These 2 juggernauts have come together to transform like Megatron and create one Decepticon ass-kicking tune. Euphoric yet groovy, very full bodied.  Includes lyrics.  Pregnant woman should not consume this beverage.

Sexy Feel-Good Funk
• Toro Y Moi – Still Sound (Voodoo Bear Remix)
I first heard this jam in the Mustang June Mix, and as the corners of my mouth began to curl up in utter happiness, the funky stings hit and I lifted out of my seat.  What a glorious feel-good song.  Summer daze, cold beers, and the hot curves of your buddy’s sister.  Truly a song of the senses; Get amongst it!

Alright, so I feel a bit bad about not posting this one for a bit, but better late than never right?

After working in the electronic music scene for quite some time now, I have seen so many acts so many times that occasionally the repetition of over-saturated artists in Los Angeles can create a strong sense of redundancy. But now, with the emergence of the VS. party in Santa Monica, GDD™ and DANCEiSM have vowed to bring the West Side of Los Angeles a breath of fresh air by trying to insert exciting, top notch acts that will smash all notions of duplication. With this in mind, we are very proud to be hosting our second VS. party tomorrow night at The Central in Santa Monica with Made To Play and Deadfish stars, Round Table Knights. This will be the first date on their North American tour, and we couldn’t be more excited to have them as our first big headliner in 2011. Supporting RTK will be our good friends, Bareback DJs, and GDD™’s own, ///BONES.

RSVP at DANCEiSM.com for $10 tickets at the door. This is a small price to pay to see the Los Angeles debut of such a huge talent! This event is 21+.
I had a chance to ask Marc and Biru a few questions the other day, so have a look at our interview below and we’ll see you all tomorrow night!

Tom Elkington, or eLDOKO, has been on my radar since sweetFA did a post a couple months ago on Woodworm Blues, eLDOKO’s debut EP on Monkey Safari‘s What! What! label. Since then, Elkington has been working on a few remixes, two of them I felt the need to share with you today. According to his Soundcloud bio, eLDOKO finds and executes a fusion between Jazz, Swing, Tech, and House, resulting in a unique sound that you’d be hard-pressed to sleep on. Grab these goodies and let me know what you think.

Extremely impressive take on the massive track from James Blake released earlier this year. Add it to your collection.
I love this track. Something about the vocals always gets stuck in my head and eLDOKO adds a little more magic to the mix. He was offering it in WAV for free on his Soundcloud, so if you want a 192 mp3 version instead of the giant WAV file, click on the alternate link (•).

Fantastic remix from Round Table Knights recently released on the lauded Deadfish label. They’ll be coming over to North America this January so keep your eyes out for a stop near you! Pick up this in full quality, along with the rest of the massive Deadfish Remixed Vol. 1, at Beatport. It’s $12.99 well spent. Trust me.


LDN This Saturday our pals at Pelski are throwing a mammoth night at Counter Culture underneath London Bridge in association with Jackmode. With a lineup that reads like a tropical fairytale and two of the most bumping soundsystems in London, where else would you be?
