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.
We have a tremendous amount of respect for our boy TJR over here at GDD™. Not because he throws down one of the best DJ sets we’ve ever seen, but from the eye-opening fidget production that’s come out of his huge recent remixes and incredible upcoming original tracks. If you’re in Southern California, make it a point to see how crazy his DJ sets get at one of the dates below. If not, we’re happy to present to you with a preview of some of his newest tracks and 3 FREE original bootlegs (TJR’s specialty) that’ll rock the rest of your summer.

FUNKAGENDA is taking CONTROL tomorrow night! Toolroom staple, Funk Farm owner, and one of my favorite DJ/producers at the moment, Funkagenda is a legend in the world of House music. His flawless blends of Progressive, Tech, and Electro are world-renowned and if you saw his earth-shaking set at Beyond Wonderland this year, you know that there is only one place to be tomorrow night. Besides the blissful hour and a half set from the Londoner, CONTROL will host an incredibly solid underbill featuring a DJ set from synthpop phenom Anoraak, an Avalon debut from our friends Savoy, and opening and closing sets from our pal ///BONES and Potty Mouth‘s TJR. Wow.

Back with the one of his dirtiest to date, Potty Mouth’s own TJR has teamed up with vocalist DJ Gant-Man to release their “Juke It.” The full length EP is perfect for the versatile DJ set, equipped with the radio mix, original vocal mix, dub mix, and his own “TJR For The Heads” Remix. This track is down right fire and is essential for those who wanna drop the vocal mix in a more mainstream set, or drop the dub mix amongst the experienced dirty dancers (Not to mention his own remix for when you wanna set all systems to rave). Check out the booty smackin’ video above, and make sure to grab the full EP – which was just released today on Beatport
To show the homie love that we have with TJR, he has given us the premiere release of his new remix for Thomas Bangalter’s ‘Spinal Scratch,’ as well as his groovy bootleg of The Doors ‘Riders On The Storm.’
Legendary DJ and prominent party-starter Donald Glaude will be making some noise at CONTROL this Friday at the Avalon in Hollywood. I actually saw Donald’s set at Playhouse earlier this summer with LA Riots, and let me tell you it was a loud one. I’d never heard a DJ use one before, but DG brought a truck horn along with him that shook the shit out of that club. I’m curious if he’ll have that in his arsenal on Friday. Supporting Donald’s headlining spot will be Trouble & Bass goth man Deathface, along with GDD™ buddy Rifat Ziadeh, Daniel L’Amour, and Steve Prior. Good times for all!
Please RSVP names to JONAH@GOTTADANCEDIRTY.COM to be on our discount ticket guestlist for the evening. Pricing will be as follows:
For those of you not able to make the trek out to Miami next weekend, don’t fret for there will be a killer show at the Avalon, just like every Friday. Headlining the night will be the Chicago native duo Santiago & Bushido, and if you’ve seen their DJ sets before you know what a flawless performance those guys put on. Supporting S&B will be blog phenomenon Don Diablo. I’m actually a bit bummed that I won’t be able to make it this Friday as I’ve wanted to see this guy for a long time, and his recent collaborations with Sidney Samson have been absolutely killer. So wipe that Miami-less frown upside-down and come shake it in Hollywood next Friday.
As always, please RSVP and send names to JONAHDANCESDIRTY@gmail.com to be on our discount ticket list. 21+ enter through the left side Honey Lounge entrance and youngsters enter through the main central entrance. Pricing will be $10 before 11pm and $15 after so get there early and have a drink
