What’s good dirty dancers? It’s Friday, and there are few better ways to soundtrack your weekend than with this latest helping of The Dirt! Troy Kurtz & Sweet FA have been hard at work, handpicking a few of their favorite tunes of the moment, so without further ado, we’re happy to present The Dirt #48…
•Mercury – Sweetness (Original Mix)√+ Giving the nod to old school house with their combination of electronic piano and soulful vocal stabs, Mercury‘s new Sweetness release is an absolute gem. Can highly recommend the full EP, which also features a stellar remix from Catz N’ Dogz.
The new M83 album Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming was officially released earlier this week, and it sits comfortably atop the contenders for album of the year. This track is from one of Anthony Gonzalez’s earlier albums, and might be one of my favorite songs of all time.
• ASAP Rocky – Wassup
NY drug dealer turned man rapper ASAP Rocky is the truth. He’s got a promethazine infused swagger, and it slow-grinds all over this Clams Casino beat (same guy who produced the mesmerizing I’m God.)
If you haven’t heard, the consummate businessman that is one Sean Combs AKA genius has teamed up with Guy Gerber to form the 11:11 project. Even though it sounds a bit kooky, the likes of Jamie Jones, Soul Clap, and Renaissance Man have already been on the remix cartel.
I’ll leave you with some witch†haus to get you in the mood for Halloween. And a birdy told me there is a /// Halloween mix dropping sooner than you can say, “OMG LOOK AT WHAT THAT GIRL IS WEARING I CAN SEE HER EVERYTHING!”
