After a number of releases with support from names like Mikix the Cat, Angel Stoxx, Trockensaft, Umek, Dubfire and many more, Dark & stormy brings us a new EP.  As suspected, he delivers full force with this new Ep Dance to This out on Metamimetic Records.

While sticking to his roots and maintaining his signature Tech House and Tropical sound, Dark & Stormy adds a more accessible element to the lead track “We’re Gonna’ Have a Good Time” which is a all out party tune for ANY occasion.  Harkening back to the days of parachute pants and bad hair, this 90′s house stomper brings the heat with a great mixture of 90′s house, Tech House and Hip House.

Tre’s Picks

Fazhands – Downtown Sound *320

I couldn’t be more excited to give away this Fazhands track on this week’s dirt!  Downtown Sound is a pleasurably deep and intelligent tune that is perfect for that closing club set.  Look out for more Fazhands in the future!

Purloid – Lochmachinoch *320

Now this is my kind of jam!  Purloid‘s Lochmachinoch is a dark techno masterpiece that will make you bare your teeth and nod your head. The track’s bass line is nothing short of hypnotizing and Purloid keeps you interested with intelligent synthesis and sequencing.

Steve Huerta, formally known as GO FUNK URSELF, is a rising star in the LA Deep and Tech House scenes.  A UCSB alum, Steve is no stranger to us here at  GDD™,  and was previously featured with  Yooj for the track “On One.” We caught up with him one sunny afternoon to discuss production, crossing genres, and of course, his beverage of choice.

The British Tech-House producer, Jordan Peak‘s newest release, Mean Streets is full of late night beats.  The entire EP is massive and not only features the well-polished sounds of Jordan Peak but also contains remixes from Chris Carrier and Sishi Rosch.  Mean Streets is a Techy delight full of swinging House grooves, catchy samples and hypnotizing basslines. Check it out after the jump!

India’s own Arjun Vagale just dropped his newest EP, Danger Mouse and it’s nothing short of a Tech-House bomb!  The EP is exactly what you would expect from the massive producer: dark, hypnotic and brilliant.  Arjun Vagale’s talent shines bright throughout the entire EP but I’ve taken a partcular liking to the title-track, Danger Mouse.  Danger Mouse‘s complex sequencing and catchy lead have me listening to the song on repeat! Check it out after the jump!

Smash TV‘s EP, Steroids to Heaven was nothing short of phenomenal and it comes as no surprise that the remixes are brilliant as well. Pol_On, Kiki, and Hector all rework Steroids to Heaven, with each artist adding their own unique stylistic approach to the already incredible original EP. I’m particularly digging Smash TV’s rework of Made for Eachother.

Many of the die-hard Tech fans have been watching Colour with amazement, it seems the English producer really can do no wrong. Don’t believe me?

Dark & Stormy brings us some of his unmistakably brilliant sounds in the form of this brand new two-track EP.  The title track, Rasta House, is a dark tech bomb, with the levity of tripped out Rasta vocals.  The not-to-be overlooked B-side, Can You Feel It Coming On, is a banging new tech masterpiece that brings flavors of 303/Hotfingers, Made to Play, Toolroom Records and Juggernauts of the like to a simmer, then adds a pinch of underground.

This week CaPa‘s Aurora EP dropped on Harkee Records and I couldn’t be more excited. The EP is massive, delivering a wide range of takes on the already exceptional title track, Aurora. CaPa has really blurred the lines here, producing a track that takes you on a journey through different EDM sounds and genres. Aurora starts as a techy jam complete with intelligent percussion and a melodic, well-produced melody. Just as you think you have found your groove the track drops you into a big room explosion that would make any progressive house head sweat.

Don’t miss this one folks!!! [Purchase Link]
