This past WMC, we had Yuksek slated to play at two of our parties. We were devastated to learn that the Frenchman had to cancel all his WMC dates to illness, so we’re elated to announce that he will finally be performing on the red carpet at Bardot this Thursday in Miami. Supporting Yuksek will be UK bliss-pop sensation Chad Valley, who is set to release his debut album ‘Young Hunger’ on October 30th. Pre-sale tickets for the event are $12.

Good morning! Today’s stories include The 2 Bears’ new mix album, the WMC 2013 Dates, and TNGHT’s ‘Mission Statement Mix’. Please read on after the jump.
Building tremendous anticipation since WMC this march and its debut on Annie Mac’s show last month, Pleasurekraft‘s ‘Skeleton Key’ is out today on Great Stuff Records. With the help of house legend Green Velvet (aka Cajmere), The haunting tech house of Pleasurekraft take on the bouncey vocals of Green Velvet and create a rollercoaster ride bigger than either of them probably expected. This is one of my top tunes for the year already as well as coolest collaboration yet. I strongly suggest you pick up this tune on beatport, plus check out more of Pleasurekraft and Green Velvet below!

Here’s some of the best of what we caught during the week. Continue Reading

Continuing our showcase of young talent this week in the spirit of the Winter Music Conference and Miami Music Week, I am pleased to present to you the completion and debut EP of Kurtz & Bomber, aka GDD’s own Troy Kurtz and Miami based studio wiz Panic Bomber. Just in time for this weeks full fledged WMC plethora of the only the best in electronic music, the self-titled release features 3 original productions that drive to the deepest limits. The tracks thrive on a bassline-driven deep house direction that is both retrospective to early house music but fresh in its delivery. Here’s what the artists themselves had to say about the tracks:
“After an extremely positive response to our first track ‘Never Sleeping’, we were eager to get back in the studio to complete our EP. ‘Work on Me’ is a pumping bassline number that has been a secret weapon in our DJ sets lately. Just a few days ago, we finished our last track ‘Such a Rush’, which features both of our vocals. It’s an eerily dark theme song for the after-hours.”
Support from: Danny Daze, Jeremy Glenn, Neoteric, Meech, Prince Club, Raffa FL, Aquarius Heaven
RELEASE DATE: TBA
We begin the week-long WMC marathon sprinting out of the gates at Bardot tomorrow night for our first ever GDD Showcase featuring Maxxi Soundsytem, Cassian, Plastic Plates, Finger Prince, Mickey, Pirate Stereo, and myself. In addition to that lineup, it’s been rumored that Jonah, Burn Unit, and ///Bones have formed a neo-tropical super group and could potentially be going live tomorrow. We’ll just have to wait and find out. Pre-sale tickets are up for only $10 and doors swing wide at 10pm.
In just a few days, thousands of vagabond partiers will flock onto the shores of Miami eager to experience the glorious week long extravaganza that we call WMC. In between yacht parties and after-hours sets, Gotta Dance Dirty, along with Overthrow, Embrace, and Karma Loop, will be presenting Pyramid Club Miami at Mamushka’s on March 22, featuring Tensnake, Fred Falke, Treasure Fingers + more. It’s been a few years since I fell in love with Tensnake’s tropical anthem ‘Coma Cat‘, and as this will be his first trip to Miami, I’m extremely excited to see him perform. The entire line-up:

Another great name making their prominence known early this year have been Jokers Of The Scene. The Canadian duo just last week released a techno shaped 5-track EP on Fool’s Gold Records called J0T5, with a seasoned RMXD EP on deck. Over the weekend we were able to sit down (on the internetz) with the Jokers to hear a little more about the EP and what else is new. So give it a read! You might just learn a thing er 2… Oh did I mention the exclusive remix they wanted to give the GDD readers just because they love you that much? SCORE.
