After barely surviving a week at the LA GDD penthouse, I had to get back to work and curate a mix for my Friday night residency at Arkadia in Miami. Arkadia is quickly becoming one of the premier house music venues in Miami, and I’m stoked to be on board. Tonight I’ll be warming up for EDX, along with a special guest from the West Coast who has been known to start some riots. For more info about upcoming events or ticket sales, click HERE.
If you didn’t make it out to our 1 Year Anniversary event last week, have a look at this recap video to check out the wild night we had. Special guest sets from LA Riots, Congorock, and Clockwork, as well as a few cameos you might recognize in there.
About a month ago, I was driving home from lunch and received a call from the music director at the Fontainebleau in Miami beach. He told me that he just confirmed Deadmau5 on the first day of 2012, and that I would be opening. As you can expect, I almost crashed my car. Now, less than a week to go before the gargantuan show and I’m frothing to see the event unfold. I’ll be warming up the party alongside Stephan Luke and Damaged Goods. It kicks off at 7pm poolside and pumps until 11pm, at which point everyone will head over to the after-party inside Arkadia. Tickets for the show are available here.
We have a special Versus this Thursday celebrating the birthday of our very own BONES. He has procured a hand-selected lineup, featuring an international secret guest headliner who happens to be in town for the weekend This event will fill up quick, plus its FREE before 11 – so get out to the Central early and come party hardy with BONES and the rest of the GDD/DANCEiSM crew. LEZGO.

Last summer, fellow blog bros Tron Jeremy, ///Bones, and I made exclusive mixes for our good friends over at Hot Biscuits. We were told they could be any genre, any style, any whatever. At the time, I had a major falling out with our lascivious lover, Miss Electro, and went pretty left-field, which spawned the first Haute and Bothered. Since then, the obscurity of artists like James Blake, Julio Bashmore, and Canblaster have filled that hole in my heart was left gaping after my sorrowful break-up. Raise your glasses, folks. We’re toasting to the future.
ATTENTION ALL DIRTY DANCERS IN THE DIRTY DIRTY SOUTH:
This Saturday (May 14th), 0ur Overthrow brethren are hosting their infamous Sloppy Seconds party in Atlanta – this time showcasing their family ties with Gotta Dance Dirty and inviting your very own BONES to bring my LA noise to the east coast alongside Tamara Sky and of course our GDD/Overthrow lovechild Troy Kurtz. If you are anywhere in a 200 mile radius I expect you not to miss this one – not just because the poster artwork is too cool for the pool, but because were gonna make ATL get bass-face banana tits. Yeah, you heard right.
Get your swag started with TKO’s moombahton remix of GDD fav Peacetreaty‘s ‘Change’ and of course their original summer heater ‘Cabo Fuego’ below:
Muchachos and Senoritas, we are proud to present the first official release of our own Troy Kurtz, alongside his Overthrow brother Damaged Goods. If you’re a tropical, rave, moombahton fan – or just a fan of the Cabo San Lucas sleaze in those dirty clubs (you know what I mean), then boy do we have a treat for chu. We are premiering to you the exclusive 320 download, so break out the tanning oil, chips & salsa, and the 2 for 1 cervezas because its time to CABO FUEGO. ¡Aye, Tan Sucia!
What better way to kick off Miami Music Week tomorrow than with a live performance by Australian good guys Miami Horror. Without a doubt, one of the most intimate and eccentric venues Miami has to offer, Bardot will surely be slammed with pre-sunburned bodies from around the world, as well as cameos from select members of the GDD family (stickers in hand).
