Tag Archives: Swanky Tunes

Of the dance music coming out of Eastern Europe and Russia these days, it’s safe to say that Swanky Tunes have been at the top of the list in the past year or so, with their pumping Electro House tunes seeing releases on Spinnin’, Size, Mixmash, and many more. They’ll be co-headlining this Friday night at CONTROL with our pal LA Riots, who hasn’t played the Avalon for many moons. Supporting the two headliners will be NYC’s Disco Fries and locals Sam Hiller and Mossberg Pump.

Please email names to RSVP@gottadancedirty.com to be on our discount guestlist for the evening. All names must be submitted by 530PM on Friday.

Pricing:
$15 before 11PM

In praise of the madness about to ensue in the desert for the next 2 weekends, I have created a celebration to the structure that will serve as a haven to much of the music that has built GDD™ to what it is today. I present to you the BONES SAHARA 2012 MIX, built on some of the biggest tracks in dance music as of current, along with a few surprises from the future. Coachella Music Festival gathers the spirit of music as a whole, but I know what you dirty dancers need to get that festival blood pumping as you voyage out to the desert lands of Indio… IN SAHARA WE TRUST.

For our thirty-sixth edition of the infamous DIRT, we bring you a top 12 chart of some of the best tracks right now in electronic music from pretty much across the board. Though they all share a common dirty-ness to them, we chose these tracks for unique reasons – and what better way to convey that then to charm you with our personal opinion on why you should direct yourself to the download link immediately (the best way we know how to).

drink up dirty dancers…

///BONES

DIRTY
Felix Cartal & Keatch – Lazy Bird (Original Mix) √+
I’ve literally waited over a year for this track to be released, and for it to have stayed locked away until just a week ago is a marvel in its own. We all know that Felix Cartal has caught our attention once again with his recent productions, but the help of Belgium-based Keatch makes their collaborative EP’s Solar and now Animals unmatchable. Grab this in 192 and do yourself a solid and purchase the full EP here.

BIG ROOM
Swanky Tunes & Hard Rock Sofa – Feedback (Original Mix) √+
This summer wherever you are in festival mode, you’re gonna hear headliners from the main stage (you should know who) playing this massive collaboration between big room track kings Swanky Tunes and Hard Rock Sofa. This one also has the same riff as Daft Punk’s ‘Rollin & Scratchin’ – but takes it to a level suitable for crowds in the 25,000+ category. BIG.

DIRTY DISCO
In Flagranti – Worse For Wear (Punks Jump Up Remix) √+
The first time I heard this in the Light Year Summer Mix, I played the mix over and over just because of this track. The howling bass line behind the drums, claps and cowbells (with a hint of dirty sax) turn the original vocal into a drunken disco fire-starter.

BASS
DJ Fresh – Louder (Club Mix) √+
Even though I don’t play out dubstep (or bass music for that matter) in my sets, I still respect it very much because of anthems like this one. This track is special however because of the newly found sound of drum & bass hero DJ Fresh. Groundbreaking tune, a MUST even if you don’t care for dubstep. Grab this 192, but get serious with the 320 here.

FUNKY
Julio Bashmore – Battle For Middle You √+
This officially came out at the very start of this year, but I haven’t been able to stop playing it out in my sets, in my car, or any where I can feel some low end with this baby. Julio Bashmore creates a love child with funk, soul and bass driven rhythm. In fact, the lyrics in the tune actually ring true because they definitely make me wanna get up, stomp my feet, and get down.

FUTURE
Kry Wolf – 3001 (Original Mix) √+
AC Slater struck gold when he discovered Kry Wolf and signed him to his Party Like Us label. His production flies across the board, but this track is titled ’3001′ because it is takes you that far ahead in time to the future of the drop. Let this one grow on you, it’s the best kind of WEIRD you could ask for.

SUMMER BLOCKBUSTER
CSS – Hit Me Like a Rock (Dillon Francis Remix)
Another killer free tune from Mr.Francis. Radio rips have been floating around for awhile, but it was finally released this past week.

DRUM & BASS
Botnek – Jerpa (Botnek Drum & Bass Remix)
An uncommon Drum & Bass remix from this up and coming Canadian Duo. If you like this track, check out the guest Dirt they did a few weeks back for some more major tunes. They are definitely a group to watch.

MOOMBAHTON
Tittsworth & Alvin Risk – Pendejas
Great new track from two of Washington DC’s best. More along the lines of moombahcore. If you dig artists like Munchi & Dillon Francis you will love this track.

ELECTRO DISCO
LBCK – Instant Party
Great new track with a great summer vibe, Huge EP from the Long Beach based duo.

GRINDCORE
Bassnectar – Upside Down
A new release from one of the bass game’s heavyweights. It is just what we have come to expect from Bassnectar over the years: HEAVY HEAVY bass.

ELECTRO HOUSE
Lady Gaga – The Edge of Glory (Porter Robinson Club Mix)
I am usually not a huge fan of any of the new pop electro house that has been going around these days. But I must admit, I really like this track. The drop in the middle is worth the download!

ZIPPED UP
