YEEEW! Dirt time & all I gotta say is I am very DTF with all of the songs so generously being put into the mix this week. Very much a theme again here, slowed UK vibes and really strongly percussion-based tracks in my picks, and a bit of everything from Jonah; ubiquitously groovy of course. Tons of free jams for everyone to enjoy, and we’re really stoked on all of the producers below & highly recommend checking more of their stuff out!

I’ve pronounced my love for San Francisco imprint Smoke N’ Mirrors a few times in the past, and my open love for Deep Disco continues as I share with you the new rework from Shiny Objects of The xx‘s “Angels.” Shiny Objects adds a deep, sexy bassline to the already flawless original from the UK band, placing it into the “jimmy jam” category according to the Smoke N’ Mirrors Soundcloud. Grab it for free below. √+ Continue Reading

When this show was first announced I couldn’t believe it. Jamie XX — the musical prodigy illustrious for his percussive talent in UK Platinum band The XX as well as his solo work remixing the likes of Gil Scott-Heron, Florence + The Machine, and Adele — is coming to Hollywood to throw down a DJ set atop the roof of The W Hotel at Drai’s. But wait, it gets better. Joining Jamie in the black Red Bull booth will be another GDD™ long-time favorite, Jacques Greene, the soulful and extremely talented producer out of Montreal. If you trust anything we’ve ever told you here on GDD™, listen to me now. Check out this show and we promise you will not regret it.

The buzzing quartet from Toronto known as Azari & III have been undeniably one of the breakthrough acts of 2011. With their debut album out now on limited edition vinyl and digital retailers and the global and physical release coming on January 22nd through Island Records, Azari & III have a busy several months ahead of them. In advance of the global release, the guys will be releasing another single, ‘Reckless (With Your Love),’ on January 15th from the self-titled album, which will be accompanied by an all-star remix team including new versions from Riva Starr, Julio Bashmore, and Tiga, as well as a radio edit and mix from super-producer Paul Epworth. Yes, I really just said all of those names in the same sentence. Before these release dates, Azari & III will be touring the UK with a mindblowing live show that has already garnered support from The XX, Tinie Tempah, and even Johnny Depp!

Music is what fuels us and feeds us. It makes rainy days better, and mondays go smoother. Today I have whipped up some smoothies that ill be cruisin’ and groovin’ to while i scrub the paint out of my furniture. Don’t expect womp, but be on the lookout for euphoric, nu-disco, indie-electro intergalactic, panty-dropping, and sweet smooth sounds from the way out. All files are direct downloads, right click > download linked file.
Bit Funk tastes like a little piece of glorious heaven scooped from a golden cloud. It sounds bright and smooth. Don’t put this on your walk-man for your morning jogs because you’ll start flying and get no exercise.
Wow this sounds like Elliot Smith on a happy day…Wish he had more of these.
Probably my favorite song in this post. Can’t wait for more productions from this lad. Japayork hails from London and is 22, but now is hopping back and forth between japan and new york hence the name. Dreamy and synthy with beautiful vocals. Easy on the hips
The New Justin Faust. French, Synthy and pretty upbeat. Just like the rest of his stuff, the production is top notch.
New Russ Chimes, god damn i love this guy
Midnight Club is something Kavinsky listens too in his ferrari testarosa driving home at midnight, but this time with a girl in the car and not hunting for his ghost.
The title says it all, all you need is some champagne and moon-boots. Myspace
Another incredible XX remix. Play it for your girlfriend, then play with her.
Have an awesome week my beautiful people!
