LIL DEATH, the distopia-done-right party that every cyberpunk in LA has darkly adored is coming to Miami this week, with a stacked lineup full of longtime GDD favorites. Our friends The Overthrow, Trouble & Bass, and Paris’ Bromance Records are all involved to bring you a very special night of Tech Noir vibes straight out of Gotham, with a very special guest.
What’s more? All this can be yours for a night with one free RSVP.
FREE WITH RSVP — EARLY ARRIVAL STRONGLY ENCOURAGED.
Read more about the party in the interview here, and be sure to check out the mix above by our very own GDD writer and Overthrow DJ, Tamara Sky, for a taste of what’s to come.
We’ve been big supporters of T&B for years now, and we love when the Brooklyn Bass collective brings their sounds over to the left coast. This Saturday, we’re teaming up with our friends at iheartcomix for a massive event at one of our favorite venues, The Central in Santa Monica, where Drop the Lime will be headlining the night with a massive underbill featuring T&B’s The Captain, Tamara Sky, BONES, and CC Sheffield. Coincidentally, Trouble & Bass just put out a new mix today, featuring 12 collaborations with artists around the world, “spanning the gamut between house, dubstep, club music and rap — often all within the same tune.”

For the 72nd installment of The Dirt, I’m teaming up with GDD’s newest member Tamara Sky, who also happens to be my sister in Overthrow. We’ve packed together some of our secret weapons to kick-start your summer indulgences. If you get really turned on by Tamara’s picks, you can catch her tonight at VERSUS. 10 tracks for download after the jump.
We’ve been lucky enough to host many of the best up-and-coming acts @ VERSUS, but we have yet to showcase the female force in electronic music that tear it up with the best of them. This week, we are proud to bring you a full fledged lineup of some of the best lady-djs from Los Angeles – featuring newest GDD member and Overthrow vixen Tamara Sky, deep techno and Bromance queen Louisahhh, disco grooving young gun Docta Nelson, and the provocative house veteran DJ Moni. This one is gonna get HOT, so we strongly encourage you to not miss out!
RSVP HERE for FREE ENTRY before 11PM.

For the past 6 months, The Overthrow Collective and I have been performing this sort of experimental party in Downtown LA called Lil Death. The project is essentially a weekly event centered around a very specific tech-noir sound that we like to call “Gotham Wave.” To tantalize your curiosity, I’ve just released version 2.0 of our Lil Death mix series with influences of post-punk, industrial, french techno, and witch house.
Lil Death’s slogans “Long Live the new Flesh” draws it’s inspirations from the post-physical reality that we get closer to ever day. This eclectic mix is electronic and organic sound is an homage to the ever wavering struggle we have with totally accepting this new prosthetic digital nervous system that has begin to connect us all.

You may have heard about Gotta Dance Dirty’s newest addition Tamara Sky numerous times here on the site already. We’re excited to announce that she is now on board as our first female contributor to GDD™ and we think her impeccable and eclectic tastes will only add to your experience here as a valued and loyal reader.
In addition to being an all-around bad ass chick and superstar DJ extraordinaire, Tamara is an artist, model, horror movie enthusiast, and generally a multi-tasking phenomenon. She recently moved from Miami to LA, and is helping expand our brethren collective The Overthrow with their already notorious weekly party project Lil Death, which takes place in DWNTWN LA, and may or may not feature regular human sacrifices.
Stay tuned for some upcoming posts!

Miami based creative collective, OVERTHROW, has been
not so silently plotting to take on the West Coast with the debut of their Sunday night party called LIL DEATH, which is this Sunday in Downtown LA. After the wicked success of the infamous Black Sunday party in Miami, evil masterminds Alexis Mincolla and Caleb Gauge have scripted the party along the fascination with Le Petite Morte. OVERTHROW mistress Tamara Sky is set to play this weekend, and she has curated the first installment of the LIL DEATH mix series. Perhaps I should have mentioned this earlier, but the party is FREE if you RSVP, and you’re also rewarded with complimentary Jose Cuervo Platino, PBR, and Prometheus Springs (while supplies last).
I feel like it’s been a while since I’ve put up a nice, feel-good mix and even longer since I’ve let you guys know what our friend Tamara Sky has been up to, so allow me to bestow some beachy vibes and classic tunes to cap your summer off right. Here is how Tamara defines Jet Lag Volume 2:
“Jet Lag is the Mixx tape series to Tamara’s cross-continental DJ adventures, scoring the changing time zones, first class seats, and hotel room mini-bars. The consummate mix of tracks have enough zip to help finish a round of Bloody Marys before catching the red eye to the next gig without a headache. Chill & quick mix of Italo Disco / Nu Wave / Shoegaze influences with drops from Roxy Cottontail, Señor Stereo and Drop The Lime.”
