I’m probably going to get a lot of shit for this one. So just as a precautionary disclaimer, I’m not really trying to encompass the infinite realm of what defines “acid” in both musical and personal experience senses of the term. So before you get your panties in a bunch that Phuture isn’t on here or your favorite Plastikman track is missing or one of these doesn’t have an “acid bassline,” just know that I am pulling the typical Burning Man “I don’t know man, you just gotta experience it yourseeeeelf” move and letting you know this is my personal derivative of what, to me, starts to entertain the idea of the drug we like to call “acid.”
Hi, I’m Laura. A few of you may know me as the discreetly evident “little sis” of the GDD family, but it’s my great pleasure to announce that my newest sisterly duty is helping my lovely bros out with content. Now that Gotta Dance Dirty has a little bit of girl power up on the site (shouts to Tamara & Olyvia…) I figure it’s time to hold things down by presenting my own unique weekly content. Enter Science Sundays. Myself being a mega science-buff (ie: nerd) I’ve always been fascinated by the way both chemicals and music can alter your brain state. Pretty magical stuff, right? They don’t call music a drug for nothing…
Each weekend, I’ll be focusing on one substance and its general effects on the body, but much more importantly I’ll be including a few of my favorite jams that go hand in hand in enhancing or defining the way that particular substance makes you feel.
To kick off the first round of Science Sundays, we’ve got perhaps my all-time favorite neurotransmitter: Oxytocin. Read more & check out the tunes that are reminiscent of the “love hormone” after the jump!

Chromeo‘s ‘Night By Night’ has become a classic in the funky duo’s large arsenal of originals. In the past couple of years, it’s been remixed by scores of producers — including Skream and Siriusmo who made the cut for the original remix EP in 2010. Now, our good mate from Sydney has put his touch on it, adding in a pair of excellent breakdowns which lead into a banging Electro/Techno revision. If you’re looking to add some Chromeo into a heavier set, this remix from Wax Motif is the one for you. Download after the jump! Continue Reading

Carl Cox has claimed that he was playing dubstep, “three years before anyone even called it dubstep.”
Cox made the claims in an interview with Time Out, going on to say, “I never got known for playing that style. I don’t mind the now generation being seen as the pioneers, but there had to be a Carl Cox opening the doors for these guys.”
