“Youth in Trouble” is the first original track released by Australian electro duo The Presets since 2009, and we couldn’t be more ecstatic about it. It employs a harder Techno edge, allowing it to transcend its groovy Nu-Disco roots. “Youth in Trouble” is bizarre, dark, and delicious, all the while maintaining a casual feel. The music video accurately sums it up: an offbeat kaleidoscope that oscillates between disturbing and nonchalant. We look forward to hearing more from the Presets as their new album, Pacifica, is due out in September. Check out the original in the video above and stream the remix from our friends The Finger Prince and Light Year below. √+ Continue Reading

• Chromeo – When The Night Falls (Hercules And Love Affair Remix)
I posted the Breakbot remix of this track last week which had the standard Disco feel to it. This rendition from Hercules And Love Affair throws in a pretty catchy synth lead in the mix. Give it a go.
• Little Dragon – Ritual Union (Tensnake Remix) [Beatport]
The Swedish band, Little Dragon, released the EP for ‘Ritual Union’ last week on Peacefrog Records, featuring touch-ups from Tensnake, Maya Jane Coles, and Unknown Mortal Orchestra. Tensnake turns the tempo down in this remix to create a really great track. Grab Little Dragon’s full length album on July 26th.
Azari & III – Manic [The Finger Prince ‘Static Situation’ remix] by PurplePR
Great new remix from Bang Gang rep, The Finger Prince. Can’t wait for this release.
Shortly after smashing our VERSUS party on Cinco De Mayo and also claiming one of the better remixes on the ZZAfrika Turbo100 release, Bang Gang’s The Finger Prince brings us his CONDUCIVE II EP. TFP takes you on a journey through the minimal and malignant levels of techno, featuring 3 new originals with remixes from Charlie May, Ark and Bowski. My personal fav on the release is ‘The Noi’, but I approve of all of them so check out the full release below and they’re giving away the Charlie May remix FREE as well!
AYE! AYE! AYYYYEEEE!
This Thursday we will be celebrating cinco de mayo in the GDD fashion, bringing you yet another rockin VERSUS party at The Central in Santa Monica. This week, we have a real treat for you, as we host the Bang Gang Deejays tour with a special perfomance as their side project for Turbo Records, The Finger Prince. You should remember fawning over the Planet Turbo EP, and his remix of Boy 8-Bit’s ‘Yard Birds’… and if not, we have that for you below. On top of that, we also welcome Pasternak from Lemonade, all the way from NYC. If that doesn’t make you drop your chalupa then we’ll have you know that Danceism wild child Ben Oprstu will be laying down a set, along with Dub Frequency’s Bixel Boys and your one and only GDD groove-master A.Rod. Make sure you make it out early, because we have surprises planned for the beginning of the noche. Dirty Dancing contests? You bet. Free tequila shots? Let’s hope so. GDD stickers on your girlfriend? Count on it. ¡Vamanos!

• Alex Pasternak (Lemonade) – Colonial Mix 2011 [direct download]
Our good buddies Guns In The Sun have been bringing some killer up-and-coming talent out to California, and the month of May is no exception. Rolling along their showcase of the Bang Gang Crew from Australia, we are stoked to announce that Light Year will be starting their ‘USA Vacation Tour’ next Friday in Denver with our mile high homies London Dungeon, and then cruise out here the next day to start their domination of the Southwest. With 16 stops on this side of the Mississippi, you better get out your tune towel and safety helmet, because these shows are gonna get sweaty and reckless.
To get your panties in a bunch with excitement, the Light Year boys put together this promo mix to prep you for their proper USA vacation, which they claim as “a big bag of cali green and some fake titties in our faces”.
*Also make sure to check out the Bang Gang DJs ‘Techno Up Your Ass’ Tour, which has a stop (as The Finger Prince) this Thursday (CINCO DE MAYO!) @ Our VERSUS party… details on that up ahead!
It’s time to unleash the fucking Dada once again at CONTROL in Hollywood this Friday. The Swedish party boys have had quite a weekend in the Southland already the past few days, with appearances at both the Heaven & Hell event in San Diego and Sutra in Newport Beach, but they will be heading up the 405 to play this Friday alongside a quartet of serious supporting talent including Boy 8 Bit, Huoratron, Paparazzi, and ///BONES.
