DIRT151

It’s another amazing round of hot new tracks courtesy of your boys Stevie Ewald + aRod.  And when we say hot new tracks, we mean it.  All ten tracks in The Dirt #151 are fresh out of the oven.  And the best part?  They’re all free for your taking.  A brand new remix by The Twelves (of The Knocks, no less!)…yeah, that’s in there.  New originals from Cyril Hahn, Gorgon City, Figgy & Cory Enemy?  Those are in there, too.  Plus heaters by our homies Panic Bomber and Huerta, Tchami, and a ridiculous  anthem by Mayhem, Antiserum, Gents & Jawns.

Get’em while they’re hot.

Stevie Ewald + aRod


Looking for a bit harder indie-electro version of The Knock’s catchy anthem ‘Comfortable’? Well, look no further. Ben Negative has put his personal spin on the track, receiving heavy support from The Knocks boys themselves. Listen to this one with headphones; your puny labtop won’t do the roaring, rolling bass any justice.


The Knocks are on fire. Their newest single ft. Connie Mitchell of Sneaky Sound System is an electro pop hit we’re dying to see live. Filled with infectious hooks, driving basslines, and of course Connie’s signature sexy vocals, we’re quite mesmerized. Out February 18th on Neon Gold Records.

lenno durante remix

This Monday, Finnish feel-good tunesmith, Lenno, will be releasing a remix EP for Never Stop — the 4-track EP that came out in early November on NYC-based imprint, Heavy Roc Music, run by The Knocks‘ B-Roc. On board for the remix release is the young gun and GDD™ homie, Durante, who has completely flipped the title track from Lenno, adding in thick, snarling Electro synth stabs to complement Lenno’s vibey Nu Disco style for a rework that highlights the inherent abilities of Durante while not fully giving up the mojo of Lenno’s original mix. Listen first below and look out Monday for the full release.

New York’s burgeoning producer/DJ duo, Solidisco, brings a modern edge to the classic house sound, riding on the fringes of Studio 54 sensibilities. They consistently bring the funk and keep it groovy – as proven by their latest jam, “Top of the World” featuring Skyy. For this week’s GDD™ Guest Mix, Solidisco offers up a tasteful concoction of only their own originals, bootlegs, remixes, and unreleased tracks.  Download/listen below and mark your calendars for Solidisco‘s remix of Mystery Skulls’ “Ghost,”  featured alongside Fred Falke, Claude VonStroke, and Viceroy for a massive remix package out on February 18th.

doses mimosas

Nashville Indie Dance duo, Cherub, will be releasing a 4-track collection titled Antipasto next Tuesday, December 10th, via Columbia Records, with 3 originals including the guys’ huge viral hit, “Doses & Mimosas,” which has recently been remixed by GDD™ favs, The Knocks. Undoubtedly already a party anthem, “Doses & Mimosas” gets a nice Indie Electro re-vibe from the NYC duo — a perfect addition to the trio of Cherub originals on the release. “Doses & mimosas, champagne & cocaine help get me through…” Enjoy the premiere below.
