Our GDD familiar and LA local Valentino Khan has a serious treat for you this week. WOW.

“Week three of my Trap Thursdays series! I took Sidney Samson’s classic tune “The World Is Yours” and originally had made this remix as a VIP for my DJ buddies, but I kept getting asked about a release once it got in a few mixes. So by popular demand here it is for all of you! -VK”

Last week, I said we’d be changing it up with our next interview, so we’re doing just that. I was lucky enough to catch up with Ibiza House legend Roger Sanchez a few weeks ago, to talk about new material, DJ polls and his forthcoming residency in Vegas. Here’s how it played out…

GDD™: Roger, how’s it going?

Roger Sanchez: Good man, very well, how about yourself?

GDD™: Very well indeed, mate. Thanks for taking the time. Where in the world are you at the moment?

RS: Right now, I’m at the airport in New York, getting ready to go to Bolivia.

GDD™: Starting from the beginning: How well did New York City serve as a launch pad for your DJing career?

RS: New York City was very important, because it was the home of house music, hip-hop, break dancing and all the different things that culturally formed me in my early years – musically speaking . Then that really impacted on what I decided to do from a production standpoint later on. The house scene and everything, was from here in New York.

GDD™: I understand you initially started off in art and design, how did you fall into the world of music?

RS: Well, I used to break dance. That all really started when I was in high school of art and design, so that’s what really got me in to it. From break dancing, I got into DJing, and we used to have little battles outside of art and design, then I started doing events and house parties in my home town of Queens and that’s really how it all got started for me in the art scene there.

GDD™: I read somewhere that you were initially enrolled to study architecture and yet you still managed to find music from there?

RS: Well the interesting thing is all the arts are in some way interrelated, and one of the ways in which the industry created atmosphere was that you had a lot of artists who were also graffiti artists, that turned into break dancers, and so I think it’s one of the interesting things from that subculture that really became a major part of our scene.

GDD™: From what I hear, it still seems to continue in New York City, it seems pivotal?

RS: Well the interesting thing is, now it’s a little bit different from when I was growing up. What’s happened now, more than anything, the breakdance scene has become more like the cool kids; the new kids taking it to a more club environment. The scene now is not the full-on culture that it was back then – now it’s hip-hop mixed with everything, but back then it was more of a movement.

GDD™: You’re releasing a new record soon on your Stealth label – when’s that out and what can we expect? I hear there are some big name collaborations you’ve got going on?

RS: Definitely, well the next single is coming out November 9, and that’s with this band called Far East Movement, they have the number one record right now in the States. I’m then doing stuff with Maroon 5, Taio Cruz, a lot of different artists right now.

GDD™: You’ve had a really colorful career so far, but where do you consider to be your home away from home?

RS: Probably Ibiza, where I have a house. I’m there the entire summer time, so I think that really qualifies as my home away from home.

GDD™: I understand you have a family, and that your job dictates for you to travel the world, as well as pretty much live in Ibiza each summer – have you ever reached the point where you might have to stop DJing, almost a breaking point in your career?

RS: The difficult thing is to be able to have a family and do this effectively. I haven’t reached the point with DJing, but it’s definitely gotten to the point where I need to rebalance everything so that I can spend quality family time as much as working. My wife understands the necessity for doing what we do, it’s how we live and how we eat – at the same time, it’s who I am. So you know, I’m still in the process, I’ll let you know in a year or so [laughs]. I’ll figure it out.

GDD™: So when you’re trying to get away from the world of work, how do you kick back and relax?

RS: I personally like to hang out on a beach – Places like Thailand or the Caribbean, and then we’ll do a cultural city like Paris or Rome, so it’s a balance between the two.

GDD™: I was at DJMag’s Top 100 awards ceremony last night. If I put it bluntly, it didn’t really seem like a full representation of the plethora of electronic artists out there. How well do you think those types of polls represent the electronic genre, and how seriously do you take them as a DJ?

RS: It’s kind of hard to be honest, because I often find that a lot of these top 100s tend to be generated by internet, and the percentage that are looking online, may not be actual club-goers, but read a review for that artists that have a release. I tend to find that the voting’s often from a younger crowd who don’t necessarily go out all the time. It’s kind of a mix: there’s some true representation there, and then there are some acts where you go: “really?! I’ve seen a lot of other acts who’ve been playing the top festivals but they’re not represented there”. It’s kind of difficult, but then, the top 5-10 tend to be close to what’s really happening. Below the top 10, you start getting past it, the results tend to wave in and out. I try not to put too much focus on it, but then again, it’s an interesting barometer to see what people are paying attention to.

GDD™: For sure, so who would be your top 3 DJs for 2010?

RS: In terms of popularity right now, you’ve definitely gotta say that David Guetta has to be either number 1 or number 2. Tiesto and Armin Van Buuren have to be up there too, myself probably up in the top 20, but I think that Swedish House Mafia have had a big year, so they have to be in the top 5. Speaking about the people who’ve been making a lot of noise, especially on the sales department, I think those guys have really been doing it this year. But it’s funny, I’ve been in the top 5 before, and I feel like I could see myself up there again, but it’s very cyclical. It’s very interesting.

GDD™: You’re based in Ibiza, you must have seen a huge number of sets this summer, what was the biggest set you saw this year in Ibiza and who’s been the biggest surprise?

RS: One of the fun ones, was me doing my six sets from the beaches, some fantastic stuff with Release Yourself, it was amazing. The summertime beach vibe is really becoming deeper and tech-ier in sound, with people like Luciano and the Cadenza family really having a major impact on the more underground sound this year.

GDD™: You mentioned the Cadenza guys, do you see their style continuing on into 2011 and 12?

RS: I think that their sound is a really great underground and interesting sound. I think that their vibe is definitely strong – it’s good to see a return of the deeper house again because I think that everything starts to become a cycle, where everything begins to come back again. I think it’ll still be present in 2011.

GDD™: And how about the new year for youself – what does 2011 hold for Roger Sanchez?

RS: It’s gonna be a big year, I’m gonna be finishing up and releasing this next album, lots of collaborations, taking Release Yourself to the next level and definitely taking my stage production to a whole new level. I’m doing a residency in Las Vegas, it’s gonna be more global than ever next year. I’m gonna be getting around a lot and definitely do a lot of songwriting.

GDD™: That’s very cool. Which club and Casino’s that gonna be at?

RS: It’s gonna be at this club called Marquee, which is a brand new venue that the Tao group are opening up. An amazing brand new venue – huge – with incredible production in the place, I’m really looking forward to it.

GDD™: We’ll have to make it down there man, we look forward to checking it out.

RS: Definitely, you guys should come down.

GDD™: Again, thanks for taking the time mate, we appreciate it.

It’s no surprise that the lead singer from Toronto’s Dragonette is adored by electronic producers looking for that sexy but badass vocal sample. With 3 new EPs out in the last 2 months, Martina is working and remixing with the likes of Kaskade, Martin Solveig, Sidney Samson, Dada Life, Joachim Garraud, Villains, and Innerpartysystem. Dragonette’s recent collaboration w/ Martin Solveig entitled “Hello” is a big room house gem that’s catchy and not too poppy for playing out. I have the Club Edit for you dirty dancers (and DJs), along with an acidy-electro take on the track from Dutchman Sidney Samson.

Also, Martina did vocals working with Kaskade on an EP for the track “Fire In Your New Shoes,” which has two especially solid electro/disco/house remixes by Innerpartysystem and Ming. Get on em because they’re well mastered fire.
Check out the other remixes on beatport!
///BONES the ///halloween mix is on its way….

Now that everyone is finally recovering from Hard and this week has finally set into full speed I have some new tracks for all you kids to hear. Definitely a complete range of sounds for all of you out there. Going from some dubstep to disco to the classic electro banger sound to some fresh dutch house from one of the worlds top producers. Today’s post really has a little bit of it all.

DJ Sneak- Sourthern Girl (12th planet & Flinch Remix)
New remix off DJ Sneak’s new release by Scion. Another successful remix by this tag team remix team. Definitely highly recommended.

Yolanda Be Cool & Dcup- We No Speak Americano (High Rankin’s Bait Wobble Remix)
“Bored of a morning i decided to ask Twitter what i should do a cheeky bootleg of to give away for chuckles. Turns out they wanted a mix of No Speak Americano so i only went and bloody did one. Some people didnt quite get the joke but as i do so like to say, fuck um if they can’t take a joke. Here it is, enjoy :)straight from High Rankin’s twitter. Resulting remix actually is good. First and only dubstep mix I have heard of this song and I like it.

Congorock-Babylon (Fare Soldi – Babbylorso Remix)
*thanks to our friends @ Deathelectro
Nice disco twist to one of the biggest songs of the year. Fare Soldi is one of my favorite italian production duo’s out there. Definitely check out more of their stuff on their myspace if you have not already. Also deathelectro has an interview with them up now, go check that as well!

Aniki Ft. Whiskey Pete- Put On My Raving Kicks (Cold Blank Remix)
Another great remix from the LA based production duo Cold Blank. Check it out asap.

Dead Prez- Its Bigger Than Hip Hop (Sidney Samson Remix)
Last but not least a new track for all you dutch house fans out there. This one has all the classic feelings of a dutch house remix but at the same time goes heavier than most dutch house tunes ever dare.

Well check out these tunes and enjoy! Please support these artists further by going to beatport and checking out more their stuff!


After spending the weekend in Vegas for JonahDancesBirthday, I was impressed and a little surprised to see that the music and scene of our pool-party-day-raging was better than the mauafactured DJ playlists heard in the clubs at night. There is so much more electronic music played during the day, and the Vegas style that has mastered the art of the ‘bootleg.’ If you can balance enjoyable hip-hop vocals with dirty ass house music, then you have a solid pool party. Scope these new ones we dabbled this weekend:

Bassjackers – Clifton (Original Mix) √+ [link fixed!]
• Afrojack ft. Eva Simons – Take Over Control (Original Mix) link removed by request! gotta be quicker! Stream it here.

Oh, and dirty dancers! My SUMMER 2010 Mix finally drops this wednesday! Get ready for an hour of party power…
