It wasn’t long ago when Jon Pegnato made up half of LA Riots, but now, he has embarked on a solo mission under the Hot Mouth moniker, bringing Electro and House to the masses. In the past couple of months, Hot Mouth has been busy. Besides signing with Liaison Artists and playing at the Palms in Vegas every week, he’s been working on collaborations with Felix Cartal, Nom De Strip, TJR, and more, as well as putting together a monthly mix series for our lucky ears here at GDD™. Now, it is time for Hot Mouth to make his VS debut at The Central in Santa Monica, and we couldn’t be more excited. Support on the night will come from SF’s Realboy, Gojira, and Check&Mate.
Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend and I wish for you to have a great week ahead of you. I have news featuring Dave Grohl, possibly Thom Yorke, Melt! Festival 2012, and TJR’s latest release. Please read on after the jump!
The golden tune is finally coming out next week. After months of mystery and anticipation, TJR is unveiling ‘Funky Vodka’, his soulful swingin’ ruckus of a jam. Prepare for what I’ve BEEN calling (since last year) one of the best tracks of 2012. Set to release on Chris Lake’s Rising Music on February 20th, I can’t wait to see the widespread success and support (not to mention the remixes that will follow!)
We’re kickin off this weekend RIGHT NOW. The main man TJR has just put out (2) phenomenal mixes for the masses, representing the electro edge and the funky fidgety techno side. In celebration of TJ performing @ our VERSUS party tonight in Santa Monica, he has given us the exclusive unveiling of the track listing for his mysterious ‘Funky Tekno’ mix – we’ll wait a second while you go “YESSSTTTTHHHHH.” Packed with staples from this madman’s DJ sets, you’re bound to find some gems in these track listings. TJR has huge releases forthcoming on Chris Lake’s Rising Music label, along with support from the likes of Tiesto, Fatboy Slim, Chuckie, Benny Benassi, Dada Life, Calvin Harris, Steve Aoki and so many more…
The moment we’ve all been waiting for is finally here. The sultan of the sky-hook.

In addition to the birthday festivities, GDD™ Top 10 DJ of 2011, TJR, will be headlining the night along with support from Casino Gold, Kid Lightning, and of course, a Matt Black-ed Out closing set from Burn Unit.

Still riding the recent chart-topping success of ‘One Love’, TJR delivers again with another massive re-creation of the hip-hop anthem ‘California Love.’ The track was officially released today on Pop Rox Muzik, an LA/NY label known for their big room electro house cross-over sound. California Love was recently debuted on BBC Radio 1 by Dirty Dutch kingpin Chuckie, and has already gained massive support from Fatboy Slim, Chris Lake, Mightyfools, and Loose Cannons. Think you’re excited about it already? In celebration of the release, we have teamed up with Pop Rox and TJR to give you 2 versions of the track exclusively on GDD – for FREE.
