Utrecht-based Dem Slackers is riding this wave of dance music explosion like a champ. The dude has had releases on the world’s top dance music imprints including Tiesto‘s Musical Freedom, Dim Mak, and most recently Ultra Music, and word on the streets is that he just finished his latest EP less than a week ago. I suppose we’ll see where that one ends up. On top of his consistent release schedule, Dem Slackers will be starting up a brand new radio show and will be heading up a HUGE showcase night at ADE this year alongside Style of Eye, Mightyfools, and more. With all of this going on, he still had time to put together a pumping Electro House mix exclusively for us here at GDD™. Stream + download below and tracklist after the jump!

Italian-born, Los Angeles resident, Congorock, has just released the remix pack for his smasher ‘Ivory’ on Ultra Music today, and it’s suited with an all-star cast of producers including Laidback Luke, The Bloody Beetroots, Mumbai Science, and NT89.

Laidback Luke’s new rendition is more of an edit, staying true to Rocco’s initial arrangement while deepening and darkening the original with some additional heavy bass. The Bloody Beetroots stay true to their grungy Electro roots, while Mumbai Science and NT89 bring on the Techno in a big way. Stream the whole EP and take a look at Congorock’s North American tour in June after the jump, and make sure to pick up the EP on Beatport pronto! √+ Continue Reading
