March is by far the busiest, yet most fun month of the year for dance music lovers and professionals. SXSW (Austin) and WMC (Miami) both host tens of thousands of enthusiasts from around the world, and this year we teamed up with our good friends TAVIK, a music driven lifestyle brand designed for active individuals engaged in modern beach culture, for an epic RV road trip across America, hitting stops from Los Angeles to Miami over the course of nearly two weeks, starting Tuesday, March 19th. With our very own GDD DJs Bones, Troy Kurtz, and Burn Unit in tow, we hopped on board a few of our friends’ showcases, as well as presented a couple ourselves. Here’s how it all went down…

Nothing is impossible. Boiler Room took over a penthouse suite at the W Hotel London and threw the badman Skream on the decks b2b with phenom duo Disclosure, in 70 minutes of incredible music and (what looked like) one hell of a party. Watch this madness and get inspired.

After a massive performance at HARD Summer Music Festival, we’re teaming up with Louisville-based producer Amtrac to bring you his forthcoming ‘Hey There Kiddo’ mixtape exclusively on GDD. Check out the video preview above, which teases in tracks and samples from the mix w/ subliminal imagery that gives you feel of a vintage public service announcement.
