AFFKT is the stage name of Spanish producer, Marc Martinez Nadal, who has been on a path of House music regeneration in the past few years — borrowing sounds from Soul, Latin, Pop, Funk, etc. to bring back a Chicago feel to his originals and remixes. It’s because of this unique fusion approach that AFFKT created his own label, Sincopat, where he and his like-minded peers could exercise their experimentation and eclecticism. Today, however, AFFKT made his upcoming 2-track EP, Dorola/Kruso, available on the Skint Records Soundcloud, and both originals are jackin’ to the max. The EP will be available September 17th on Skint Records. Stream after the jump! Continue Reading

A couple weeks back I posted the new single, ‘In The Blood,’ from British dance music vets, X-Press 2. The House jam released yesterday on Skint Records has a throwback feel to it, incorporating vocals from Alison Limerick who contributed her voice to many successful dance tracks in the 90s. Needless to say, I was impressed by the release and I wanted to check in with Diesel and Rocky of X-Press 2 to see what they were up to and get their seasoned perspective on some aspects of the burgeoning dance music scene. In addition to our chat, the guys also put together a fantastic, exclusive hour-long mix just for GDD™ that is available for download below. Get into everything after the jump and cruise on over to Beatport to pick up ‘In The Blood’ with remixes from AFFKT, Chocolate Puma, and Seamus Haji. Continue Reading

England’s X-Press 2 is a legendary dance music duo (used to be a trio until 2009) that has been on the scene for nearly two decades now. From their breakthrough hit single, ‘London X-Press,’ in 1993 to their massive collaboration, ‘Lazy,’ with Talking Heads frontman David Byrne in 2002 to this upcoming release featuring illustrious 90s House vocalist Alison Limerick, X-Press 2 have always managed to stay ahead of the curve. ‘In The Blood’ is a blast from the past masterpiece with incontrovertible influences from House music of the 90s, and the remixes from Chocolate Puma, AFFKT, and Seamus Haji assist in making this an overall √+ release. The EP will be released on May 28th via Skint Records. Continue Reading
