ATTENTION blogaholics: one of our favorite up-and-coming DJ duos NO BODY have just hit a home run. Making the first jump into the remix pool, they’ve tackled TJR‘s Beatport chart-topping tune ‘Funky Vodka’ and sent it through the grinding gears of heavy hitting electro. Already a dance floor anthem for 2012, the NO BODY boys have just cleared this track for big room liftoff. We’re lucky enough to be giving you dirty dancers the exclusive download and we hope it turns your summer funky into festival fire. I SAID YA’LL HAVIN A GOOD TIME OUT THERE?

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.

The veteran Dj duo have just released their next EP on DJ Dan’s InStereo Recordings called WEEKEND IN CALIFORNIA, featuring “Honey Love” and “Big Bright Lights.” WhiteNoize are known for digging up old disco classics and reviving them with club electro, fidget, and tech-house body parts.
