What’s good dirty dancers?! This Thursday in Santa Monica our friends from London label Metamimetic will be gracing the decks at our weekly Versus party. Showcasing fresh talent from their roster, the guys at Metamimetic have invited along dynamic LA house producer Urulu to headline the show, the lineup for which reads like this:
LDN This weekend Metamimetic are piloting the first of the label’s Sunday tech-house sessions. From 4pm – Midnight, Metamimetic residents Fazhands and SweetFA, will be laying siege to the legendary Old Blue Last, joined by special guests Scrub, Lucian, and a B2B set from Potty Mouth Disco‘s Red Ben and Mike OK. With the emphasis on a deep and groovy sound, this the perfect way to end the weekend on vibes.
Scope out SweetFA’s Deep In Thought Promo mix below:
In a similar vane to TJ’s dope 2010 Festivus mix posted last week, I just compiled my January mix. The recent techno roundup brought with it a grip of controversy, so this mix comes with an advisory label: it contains techno. Currently working on an EP which is set to drop on Metamimetic in early Spring. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy this mix with some fresh material as well as a couple of oldies in there for good measure:
02. Zombie Disco Squad – Esperanto (Solo Remix) 03. Julian Jeweil – Polaroid (Sebastien Leger Remix) 04. Saeed Younan & DJ Wady – DC 2 MIA (Paolo Mojo Remix) 05. Lutzenkirchen – Kansas City Shuffle 06. Mumbai Science – Hoot
07. Nouveau Yorican – Chiuso 08. Umek – Novi Sad (Uto Karem Remix) 09. Pan-Pot – Black Horse Down 10. Para One – Nevrosis 11. Electric Rescue – Money (Citizen Kain & Phuture Traxx Remix) 12. Jan Driver – MecaFunk 13. Electric Rescue – Empire Of The Desert 14. Para One – Animal Style 15. DJ T. – Dis (Kink Remix) 16. Tom Flynn – Seduction 17. Julian Jeweil – Polaroid
What’s good Dirty Dancers?! It gives us great pleasure to announce our first ever European show, which we’re throwing in connection with Metamimetic at London’s legendary East Village on Friday 29 October! We’ve curated a lineup which includes very special friends, but also some of the freshest talent the electronic music scene has to offer. After all it’s Halloween, so the emphasis is on blooding new artists…
This summer, GottaDanceDirty homie and Metamimetic label-mate Tre has been hard at work in the studio, putting the finishing touches to his debut EP: Donna. From Los Angeles, Tre’s live sets are epic affairs of heavy electro and dubstep; Control regulars will most likely have caught one of these spectacles in the Honey Lounge this year in support of acts like Simian Mobile Disco and Don Diablo. Tre’s unmatched charisma behind the turntables comes from several years experience as the frontman for a screamo punk band, and his instrumental EP is certainly influenced by this. Donna features 5 originals, including the reworked ‘Get Up’, a track that we featured back in February. Dubstep and classical influences are pretty resonant throughout, with a well rounded debut that is as raw and overdriven, as it is mellow and melodic. So get at it:
For all you UK based Dirty Dancers: this Wednesday we’ll be heading up North and laying siege to Leeds Cockpit where Metamimetic are hosting Room 2 at a new night called Drop The Phone. Sets come from ZX, Fazhands and yours truly, SweetFA. So roll through and say what’s up. In the meantime, here are a couple of tracks to get the Tech-House juices flowing for Fazhands’ forthcoming EP, set to drop in October:
LA – This Wednesday our pals over at ShiftyRhythms are hosting their high powered GET SHIFTY night at Main on Main in Santa Monica. This is their first event of the school year, so it’s guaranteed to be a wild and shifty affair with $4 bev’s and free entry before 11pm ($5 after).
Beats will be provided by ShiftyRhythms residents Doc P and The KiD, and an opening 9-11 set from yours truly: SweetFA – what a privilege. You can whet your whistle for Wednesday by checking out their recent promo vid below. See you on the dancefloor!
Sorry for the extended hiatus everybody. I had a holiday break full of tequila, border police, and snow bunnies, and I have to say it’s wonderful to be back in school. I hope you all had an excellent new year and got some sweet strange ass at midnight. But now, it is a new decade and why not celebrate the big ’10 with us at the Avalon in Hollywood with Drop The Lime and Designer Drugs this Friday? Tear down those Christmas lights and throw away that gross egg nog, it’s time to rave again.
The GDD™ room will be going off this week with our good friend Taylor from kidcityblog making a special guest DJ appearance as well as ///BONES, Mr. Anderson, and your favorite British DJ in Los Angeles sweetFA.
