I was truly taken aback when I first heard Mosh‘s full-length album Monarchy. I felt like I had time-traveled back to 2007, when French electro acts like Justice and SebastiAn ruled the roost. I remember after Cross dropped a plethora of people began to experiment with DAWs, attempting to recreate those magical rock-inspired French grooves. Now nearly five years later, Mosh has succeeded where most have failed.
Mosh’s album Monarchy is a true full-length album. Mosh has not only managed to make Monarchy listenable in its entirety, but has also made it enjoyable from start to finish. Monarchy encapsulates everything that made 2007 seem so special, throws it into a blender and serves it up cold. The album really has it all: hip-hop inspired house beats, dark distorted bass lines, head-nodding grooves, and most importantly, power.
Mosh was also kind enough to put together an exceptional mix just for you. Both his album and the mix are available for FREE download below.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! As you sit back and relax with good food, family and friends check out this newest installment of The Dirt by Tre and yours truly. This week we have a groovy mix that features a lil bit of everything. From House, to dub, Acid House and some dark electro, this line up is perfect for an afternoon of recovery and rallying before all the Turkey parties start!
TONIGHT the Avalon in Hollywood will play host to a mind-blowing, highly anticipated live set from Ed Banger‘s SebastiAn. It’s been over 4 years since the last time I saw SebastiAn when he played one of the best dance music events I’ve ever attended. Yes, that would be Daft Punk, Ratatat, SebastiAn, and Kavinksy at the Sports Arena in Los Angeles in July of 2007. With a newly orchestrated live set as well as supporting sets from Sharooz, Destructo, Brazzabelle, and Andy D’Arrigo, I’m sure this will be a night of CONTROL to remember.

“The waves ≠ raves consists of hand-picked gems that inspire us, tickling and tempting our creative juices. Some are old, some are new, but it is what we are listening to now. They are groovey, flowing, and sun-kissed just like that perfect wave. They are uplifting and guaranteed to put a smile on your face. They sound the best with a babe in one hand, a cold brewski in the other, and the sand beneath your feet. Stay Dreamy.”
Foreword from Viceroy:
While the music market continues to grow into an ‘over saturation’ of electronic blogs, the majority of them seem to only know how to post those same absolute jams that their competition managed to post in previous features. That alone is not enough to make a blog stand out in my mind. I have been and always will be a huge fan of Gotta Dance Dirty. Why? They not only have the most up to date jams from the big dogs, but they support up and coming artists too. How many well-established blogs do that? I can’t name many. Supporting my summery beats since I started in February, Gotta Dance Dirty has given me the honor of hand selecting the tracks for Waves ≠ Raves Mixtape Vol. 14. Looking for some sun-kissed disco to cap off your summer fun? Look no further.
Enjoy, and stay frothy my friends.
