I know what you’re thinking – Yes, that dirt babe has a GDD tattoo. Well, according to photoshop she does. The 42nd edition of The Dirt is a good one. Encompassing multiple genres and artistic styles, Jonah and Bones have come up with a 10-pack of tunes that hit all the right spots to get you ready for the weekend. Let’s get dirty.

1st Part: jonahberry – The Dirt #42 .zip

• Dennis Ferrer – Hey Hey (Atjazz Remix) √++
A great Deep House track. I love the continuous build of the vocalist’s intensity. A must have for late nights and early mornings.

• Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs – Trouble (Chad Valley Remix) √+ [Beatport]
Mellow, summertime vibes. From it’s opening avian sounds to Orlando’s soothing vocals, this remix released on Polydor earlier this summer will be a crowd pleaser to any sun-drenched soiree.

• Brenmar – Waiting On (Original Mix) √+ [Purchase]
This track was released on Buraka Som Sistema‘s Enchufada label for their 6th edition of Hard Ass Sessions. If you’re into Kuduro, you’re into this.

• Sound Pellegrino Thermal Team – Bassface (Ardalan Remix) √+ [Beatport]
It was such a pleasure having Teki Latex play our VS. party last week. This is the remix of Bassface that he played and the crowd went wild.

• Duck Sauce – Radio (Bastille Edit) √+
Our friends, Bastille, just came out with this edit of Duck Sauce‘s latest track, and it’s a goodie. 100% party starter. Come on out to VS. in Santa Monica tomorrow night to see these guys get down.


2nd PART: BONES – The Dirt #42.zip

• Spencer & Hill – Shy Boy (Ron Vellow Remix) √+
A groove master killer track, first time I heard this I was bouncing off the walls. Vellow takes S&H’s progressive house vibes with soulful vocals and rips in an unforgiving bassline that makes this a huge club favorite.

• Etienne De Crecy – Hope (Alternate Studio Version) √+
The already well known track got a rework by the Cube master himself, and it proves superior for the DJ set. Perfect if you’re like me and love a vocal intro you can blend into the previous track before it rips into its own transition.

• Slap In The Bass – Egypt (Neki Stranac Moombahton Edit) √+
First heard this seeing Nadastrom @ HARD Summer this year. The bass in this is humongous, definitely meant for big systems to do it its justice. If you dare download this one make sure you have some low end to really give the full effect. You’ll know what I’m talking about if you do.

• Alex Kenji – Let’s Get This Thing Started (Original Mix) √+
Great intro track for those tech house, minimal or fidget sets. This sample has been used in several different tracks, but Alex Kenji proves it’s not overdone and makes sure of that in this funky techy tune.

• Tensnake – Need Your Lovin (Original Mix) √+
You can’t go wrong with most of the disco production these days, and one of the leaders in that regime is Tensnake. His live album is pure gold from start to finish, and this is one of the many tracks you can’t listen to just once. You’ll get hooked and I’m betting this will get some serious play in your automobile. Make sure to pick up the Tensnake live mix HERE.

Remix contests can be a lot like that movie AVP: Alien vs. Predator: whoever wins, we lose. Not only does the sheer quantity of entries make it difficult to find the quality (especially as a blogger), but by the time the winner is declared, most of us are burnt out on hearing the same stems used over and over again (extra credit: can you name me the winner of the Beatport-sponsored “Latin Fever” contest without looking?). Then you have 16-year-old Madeon from France, who Rob Swire crowned the victor of Pendulum’s “The Island” remix contest. Listen to Madeon’s unique style of feel-good call-and-response disco pop and I’m sure you’ll agree that this youngster is no one trick pony. Stream an original and remix of The Killers directly from our site and be sure to check out the rest of his work on soundcloud.

• Madeon – Shuriken

• The Killers – Smile Like You Mean It (Madeon Remix)


• Spencer & Hill – LESS GO! (Porter Robinson Remix)
Speaking of teenage electro prodigies, here’s the latest from Porter Robinson if you haven’t been minding those Beatport charts.

What’s good dirty dancers?! Right now, I’m en route to Belgium, for what promises to be a ripper of a weekend ahead. This Saturday marks the 15th anniversary of the famed I Love Techno, taking place in Gent, and we’re going to be bringing you coverage of the event. If you’re based in Continental Europe, there’s only one place you should be this weekend, tickets are still available for 50 Euros a pop, well worthy of the mind blowing lineup.
