This week we continue our series of exclusive giveaways: every Wednesday, Willy Joy & GDD™ have teamed up to give you Free Willy Wednesdays! Each week we’ll give you a new tune out of Willy’s vault. Some are remixes, some are bootlegs, some are 100% originals. Some of them you may have heard played by your favorite DJ or in an exclusive mix, but now they’re yours… for free!

This week brings a massive original tune straight from Willy’s “secret weapons” folder. It’s called Shock The System, and one listen will tell you why! A slow burning thugged out breakdown explodes into siren synths and massive bass, a peak time tune for sure. This is shock therapy at its best!

Coming off of a three week tour of Australia, a tour of North America with Feed Me, a handful of parties in Miami, and a recent relocation to Los Angeles, AC Slater comes back hard out of the studio with the bass-heavy Electro release, Sidewinder, due out on Brooklyn’s Trouble & Bass Recordings on May 8th. Sidewinder features a two-pack of originals from AC, along with a pair of big and bassy remixes from pals Drop The Lime and RackNRuin. Just what you’d expect from a member of the T&B family, AC Slater delivers some low-end Electro that begs for a massive system. Get it into you after the jump. Continue Reading

This past Friday we had the whole Trouble & Bass crew take over CONTROL @ The Avalon, led by head honcho Luca Venezia aka Drop The Lime. If you missed this earlier this week like I did, Luca released a Winter Afterhours mix thats simply the cat’s meow. Packed with vintage styles of rock, electronic, blues, and reggae blended to create “house for the drive home.” Great for background music (when you wanna leave something on in your room, ya know) and definitely a cool change of pace for the Brooklyn badman.

I’ve always felt like CONTROL at the Avalon provided a home away from home situation for the Trouble & Bass crew. Drop The Lime and AC Slater were some of the first acts that I ever saw at CONTROL, and it’s been great watching the artists and the party grow up together over the past 3 years. This week, the Heavy Bass Champions will return once more to 1735 Vine St. for a full-on takeover, featuring DJ sets from Drop The Lime, AC Slater, Star Eyes, The Captain, and Samo Sound Boy. What a lineup, right? Right.

Please RSVP names to RSVP@gottadancedirty.com to be on our discount guestlist for the evening. All names must be submitted before 5:30PM on Friday.

With the T&B takeover at CONTROL at the Avalon this Friday, it only made sense to premiere the new Star Eyes EP, The Night, for you guys this afternoon! Set for release on January 17th on Trouble & Bass, the EP features the original from Star Eyes as well as remixes from Hostage, Deathface, and Bad Looks. The melodic original mix is equipped with chilling vocals, light airy synths, and a gripping grungy sound found in the peak of the track. The trio of remixes goes in all directions. Hostage embarks on an uptempo journey while utilizing Star Eyes’ stems very well, Deathface brings out the big guns as he throws in some major whomps and wiggles, and The Bad Looks remix incorporates some breaky drums and even furthers the wonky, grungy synth used in the original.

Enjoy streaming the EP before the release on the 17th, and make sure to come check out Star Eyes drop it this Friday at the Avalon!



Our friends over at Trouble & Bass have a heavy release slated for the 13th of December from the bass fiend from Chicago known as Willy Joy. You might remember seeing Willy up here on GDD™ a month or two ago when we posted up a fall mix as well as Flinch’s √+ remix of ‘Woman Like Me,’ and now he receives our support once again for the absolutely banging Whispering Woods EP. As the T&B guys so aptly described it, the title track “is a face-blistering chunk of electro stabs and drum rolls that recalls your first metal show as much as a bad trip in the forest,” which probably scares and intrigues you simultaneously as it does for me. Fans of Electro, listen here first and pick it up 12/13.

I’ve been waiting for this one for a while as I’m sure many of you have. Trouble & Bass boss, Drop The Lime, is bringing his live band to the Avalon in Hollywood in 2 days, and I’ve heard only amazing things about this highly anticipated performance. In addition to this monstrous headliner, we will also witness another CONTROL appearance from GDD™ fav, Alex Metric, as well as the Finnish firestarter, Huoratron, and West Coast T&B rep, Samo Sound Boy. This is going to be a good one boys and girls.

As you may or may not know, the Trouble & Bass DJ/Producer from Brooklyn known as AC Slater teamed up with Atlanta’s indie rapper, Dell ‘080’ Harris, last year for a full length dance/rap crossover album that was released by the always fresh NY streetwear company, Mishka Clothing. The album was produced by AC, featured vocals from Dell, and also hosted a roster of featured artists including Drop The Lime, Ninjasonik, Megan Thomas, and more. The guys have just released the the title track of the album, ‘Right Now,’ today as an EP along with the instrumental and a raunchy little rendition from Party Like Us Records rep, Udachi, that has already been getting support from Starkey, DJ Mehdi, Rico Tubbs, and more. Grab the Udachi remix in full quality and make sure to check out the awesome music video for ‘Right Now’ below.
