Dirty Dancers! With the recent release of Dim Mak‘s New Noise Vol. 2, we have been proud to promote many of our friends on the compilation, and encourage you to support the young talent that are making serious waves. BUT – today we are giving you guys an exclusive giveaway from one of the biggest artists on the album. The German heavyweight Tocadisco offers up his take on New Noise Vol. 2 with “Jump,” a bouncey club techno tune that screams for big room delivery. Grab the tune below, and make sure to check out the rest of the Dim Mak compilation, available now on beatport and itunes.
Hot off the press, our Canadian buddies Botnek have sent us their newest remix, taking on the sounds of house mogul Tocadisco. These guys keep impressing me with their innovative directions on every remix, always testing the limits of the original tracks. This version goes from a hard hitting club bassline, to a almost glitch hop breakdown, and then resurrected back to its uptempo slimy techno. GET WEIRD.

Last week I went utterly ape s**t upon finding out that my favorite German dance duo Booka Shade are about to embark on a six date tour of the US in May. Here’s a glimpse at their schedule:
05.25 – Music Hall of Williamsburg, New York, NY
05.27 – Henry Fonda, Los Angeles, CA

These tour dates are in conjunction with the release of their forthcoming LP entitled More! which is set to drop on their Get Physical label in Germany on April 23rd, and the rest of the world ten days later. Don’t ask why there’s a delay – I’m guessing it’s a home ting. The album marks the follow up to 2008’s Sun & The Neon Light LP, which was massive, so I’m excited to check out their new stuff. The ‘Shade were also kind enough to provide everyone with a promo track from the forthcoming album via their website, you can check it out here:
