Dirt 120 Troy Kurtz Burn Unit

Apologies for the hiatus, friends. Last week that evil siren Vegas clutched the GDD™ crew tightly in her grasp and forbade us from blessing your ears with that week’s dosage of The Dirt. Alas, here we go, with ten tracks curated by our own Troy Kurtz & Burn Unit, fresh off two killer sets aboard the GDD™ Presents: Wide Awake Art Car Stage at Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas. Get it into you.

Viceroy’s at it again, sticking to his “Summertime, All the Time” mantra on his brand new remix of Washington, DC indie electronic band Brett.  Viceroy takes the funky feel of the original and splashes it with his trademark summer colors.  Sunny piano, sweet, bouncy lyrics and frolicking disco vibes make Brett + Viceroy the perfect fit to keep those dark days full of light.

Out October 30th on iTunes!

After a number of releases with support from names like Mikix the Cat, Angel Stoxx, Trockensaft, Umek, Dubfire and many more, Dark & stormy brings us a new EP.  As suspected, he delivers full force with this new Ep Dance to This out on Metamimetic Records.

While sticking to his roots and maintaining his signature Tech House and Tropical sound, Dark & Stormy adds a more accessible element to the lead track “We’re Gonna’ Have a Good Time” which is a all out party tune for ANY occasion.  Harkening back to the days of parachute pants and bad hair, this 90’s house stomper brings the heat with a great mixture of 90’s house, Tech House and Hip House.

Grab the EP after the jump!

We begin the week-long WMC marathon sprinting out of the gates at Bardot tomorrow night for our first ever GDD Showcase featuring Maxxi Soundsytem, Cassian, Plastic Plates, Finger Prince, Mickey, Pirate Stereo, and myself. In addition to that lineup, it’s been rumored that Jonah, Burn Unit, and ///Bones have formed a neo-tropical super group and could potentially be going live tomorrow. We’ll just have to wait and find out. Pre-sale tickets are up for only $10 and doors swing wide at 10pm.

In a similar vane to TJ’s dope 2010 Festivus mix posted last week, I just compiled my January mix.
