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.

Happy Monday guys. I hope you all had a party-filled, safe weekend and aren’t hurting too badly this morning. I was happy to see my buddy Urulu‘s name pop up in my inbox over the weekend as he has just finished an exclusive mixtape for Montreal-based blog, What’s For Dinna, including some of the greatest contemporary House music that you’ve probably never heard of. To this day, I can safely say Urulu has one of the best music tastes of anyone I’ve ever met, and you’ll see why when you throw this guy on…
