As the holiday season continues to sneak up on us with colder temperatures and earlier sunsets, we’ve got a grip free downloads to keep your spirits up. In this 137th installment of The Dirt, we have an exquisite new edit from Maceo Plex, a 2013 touch up of TLC courtesy of Bixel Boys, a sexy new take on Marvin Gaye from Kygo, electro meets rock courtesy of Coyote Kisses and the very first Golden Pony original.

The emerging bass music producer, Druid Cloak, and I are proud to present you with the 117th edition of The Dirt. Together we bring a varied offering of current favorites ranging from experimental to deep house, and everything in between. Enjoy our selections and be sure to grab my free downloads zipped up for your convenience.
Big thank you to Druid Cloak for providing his picks with commentary!
Perhaps for the better, LA has temporarily lost one of its top producers to the UK. Yung Taylor Freels, who goes by the name Urulu, has quickly established himself atop the ranks of sophisticated house listeners with a grip of chart-topping tracks on Exlpoited, petFood, and most recently Needwant. He’s reworked The Weeknd’s ‘Twenty Eight‘ into a balearic symphony of warm pads and soft vocal croons. If you find yourself sailing around with a bevy of babes, you’d most definitely want to impress with this tune, however, it still pairs very well with your morning coffee. Grab the free download below.
Toronto gentleman Poupon is trekking back over to the states for a quick US tour after kicking off his new residency at Velvet in Montreal on the 12th.
In celebration and anticipation of the upcoming shows, Poupon has released his newest version of his mixtape series “Cooked Up”. Cooked Up Volume 7 keeps with the tradition of the previous mixes by putting together the latest and greatest across the range of house music. Keep an ear out for new tracks from producer friends Forrest, Urulu, and Cyril Hahn, along with tracks from Poupon’s upcoming releases: an EP on Detroit imprint Incorrect Music, a collaboration with Prince Club on the legendary Nervous Records, and a collaboration with French DJ/producer D.FINE.
Listen to & download the mix below and be sure to check out Poupon if you’re local!
It’s been a journey. Since its inception in the summer of 2010, our longest lasting weekly feature, The Dirt, has brought a staggering amount of free music to the masses, and we’re proud to still be here 100 editions and 100 Dirt Babes in the books. It’s a tough feat to get these tracks together each week (probably why we have some gaps in the mix here and there, apologies), but it’s been an amazing experience sharing music with all of you, which, of course, is the main reason why we’re here.
We wanted to put together something special for the centennial episode, so 11 of our writers have included 2 songs each — one from one of the 99 past Dirts that we’ve posted and any other song that we felt was exceptional enough to make the cut of such an outstanding post. We hope you enjoy these as much as we enjoyed putting them together. Here’s to another 100. Continue Reading
YEEEW! Dirt time & all I gotta say is I am very DTF with all of the songs so generously being put into the mix this week. Very much a theme again here, slowed UK vibes and really strongly percussion-based tracks in my picks, and a bit of everything from Jonah; ubiquitously groovy of course. Tons of free jams for everyone to enjoy, and we’re really stoked on all of the producers below & highly recommend checking more of their stuff out! Download all 11 tracks after the jump… Continue Reading
It’s hard to believe that September is now upon us. The summer here in the Northern Hemisphere is coming to a slow-rolling close, but September also brings along Insomniac’s Nocturnal Wonderland — a spectacle of an experience located here in Southern California at the NOS Events Center in San Bernardino. This year, GDD™ has teamed up with Insomniac and our friends at Vagabond to curate the lineup for the WIDE AWAKE Art Car which is fully equipped with a mobile Funktion One sound system and will be roaming about the festival grounds on Friday the 21st. Vagabond’s Ahh-G has put together a mix to portray the vibe we’ll be going with as we roll around the NOS Center, and he’s included some exclusive, unreleased new material from the likes of Prince Club, Urulu, Astronomar, and more. Make sure to pick up your tickets to the festival here, and snag this mix and tracklist after the jump. Continue Reading
This four track EP by Steve Huerta on Amadeus Records is sexy, deep house with a club-friendly demeanor geared for the summer. Throbbing bass, bubbly synths, intricate vocal work and sampling, spot-on grooves and percussion, filtered pad work. It takes you deep– very deep– but in a friendly sort of way that Steve is carving out as his signature. I’ve always loved what he does with the vocal samples that he combs the sonic world to find, and he’s got a hauntingly good sense of atmosphere that is at this point unmistakable. All wraps up nicely by an even deeper remix by Urulu, another favorite of ours. Everything these two put out just keeps getting better and better. I’m on board and hereby offer my unconditional endorsement.
Looking forward to this week’s CONTROL at the Avalon in Hollywood with LA’s own Daedelus and Nosaj Thing headlining supported by Two Fresh and our friends Valerna and C-Town. Also, the Honey Lounge will be hosting two of our very good up and coming friends Urulu and Koncan. Get yourself there.

A really great video of Daedelus playing live on a rooftop here in Los Angeles. The guy knows his stuff.
LA’s young gun and GDD familiar URULU has just released ‘The Untitleds’ EP for absolutely FREE. The rising producer has recently become apart of Faceless management, alongside Prince Club, Poupon and Meech.
