Tony Senghore and Dave Spoon have joined forces to create their latest Dim Mak Records release, “Be 4 Ever” which was unveiled last week on the LA label. This track brings listeners to otherworldly dimensions with heavy bass, guttural robotic vocals, and haunting synths. Don’t be fooled by the name; this apocalyptic track is anything but sweet. The Swedish and British producers are well known for their ability to create entirely fresh and progressive sounds, but their underground “Be 4 Ever” is an unparalleled aural sensation. Today, Tony has unveiled his own personal remix of the collaborative original which you can grab after the jump!

Pay attention kiddos, big tunes ahead!  In this week’s edition of “The Dirt,” we are proud to present the incredibly talented, Linus Eklow, aka Style of Eye.  The Stockholm native is known for his eclectic sound, which stylistically utilizes a fresh blend of techno, house and a healthy dose of raw, grinding electro. He has had a considerable amount of success with releases on Dirtybird Records, whom you’ll recall from the from Claude VonStroke/Justin Martin CONTROL at Avalon last Friday.  With support from some of dance music’s biggest names (John Dahlback, Tiga, and Swedish House Mafia to name a few), Style Of Eye is on track to fulfilling DJ Mag’s prediction of becoming an “Important Future Star.”  We predict he will continually blow us away with innovative productions, pumping DJ sets and generally just being a really cool guy.  Most of these are unreleased or brand new so read more for streams of his top tracks with my commentary after the jump…

So the Party Like Us Records guys have made their decision. The winner of the GDD™ ‘Stumble’ Remix Competition is Detroit native/LA resident, Rob Darke. Rob actually just recently got into EDM in the past couple years, saying that he really got into it after using it as a sleep deterrent while writing essays in college, but since his first few dance music experiences, he knew musical production was something he wanted to do. With the help and guidance of his brother Brian, Rob Darke has quickly become keen to the ways of making a solid electronic track, and with influences such as Canblaster, Wolfgang Gartner, and Tony Senghore, it’s safe to say that a bright future lies ahead for this up and comer. Here’s what Udachi had to say about the winning remix:

“I think Rob Darke’s remix is a good example of a nice solid tune, nothing overdone, just straight good. The vocal on the original is tricky because it starts a quarter note late from the 1, and I think it threw a lot of people off. But Rob Darke’s remix makes sense musically and has his own personal flair. The mix is nice and clean, and I love the big build into the 4×4 tease into the soca snare bit. I can hear this in a variety of DJ’s crates; from sunrise sets, to setting the pace for the night. Real classy and gleamin’!”

Find Rob’s remix as well as remixes from the first and second runners up below, and make sure to pick up the full Stumble EP on Beatport!
