This hot season is winding down but that doesn’t mean the music is cooling off at all… Our aussie friends Yolanda Be Cool have given us the exclusive premiere on their version of Indian Summer’s pumping track “Grand Rapids”, off their recent release Foreign Formula on Sweat It Out! music. The YBC duo loved the original so much they wanted to ‘Rechunk’ that would fit perfect into club sets… DJs don’t sleep on this one!
Yolanda Be Cool on
Sweat It Out!
It’s time for the weekend – and what better way to kick it off with a special HARD edition of The Dirt, bringing you (15) tracks to pump all the way through. We welcome the HARD bossman Destructo to the selection, along with his #2, mister D BELL himself and our very own BONES. Some of these you can download (where you see the DL link given), but some you just have to listen and wait because they’re either too good to be FREE or their quite frankily not even out yet. All in all, gems abound. Dig in, my weekend warriors.

Yolanda Be Cool‘s massive rebranding effort from their 2010 hit single, “We No Speak Americano,” has proved to be very fruitful. Signing to Dim Mak Records for the U.S. release of their new album turned a lot of heads, and their mix for the label’s pool party in Miami stirred up a lot of passion. With many ID’s on their way according to some facebook activity, a new song and video titled, “A Baru In New York,” has come into being.

After a one week hiatus, CONTROL is back with a dancey lineup featuring two big shots of Disco House, the DnB gone Disco producer from Atlanta known as Treasure Fingers and one of the biggest up and coming names in the genre, BURNS. Unfortunately, a disco rollerskate boogie is most likely not allowed inside the Avalon in Hollywood on Friday night, but be sure to expect one happy crowd and two sensational DJs going all night.
Please RSVP names to JONAH@GOTTADANCEDIRTY.COM to be on our discount ticket list for the evening. All names must be submitted before 5:30pm Friday night.
21+: $10 before 11pm
18+: $15 before 11pm
Also, grab Treasure Fingers’ new remix of BURNS & Fred Falke in sweetFA’s post from yesterday HERE
Alright alright I know this song is played out to the max and I’m sure you’ve put it in the depths of your memories like I have, but in case you ever need to put some Dutch bang into a song request, give this one a go. Hopefully our friends, SAVOY, will be coming to LA soon!
I know it’s a little late notice, but it’s a big night at Cinespace tonight kiddos! As you can see above, Midnight Juggernauts will be performing live off of their new album, The Crystal Axis, which was released on Siberia Records in June. Main stage will also play host to another live performance from Las Vegas electro trio, Afghan Raiders, who will also be making an appearance at HARD Summer in August. I don’t know about you all, but I love to see live shows as often as possible, so I would definitely suggest making it out to catch both of these acts.
On top of the live sets in the main room, an all star DJ lineup will also be in effect including Dances With White Girls
(one of the masterminds behind the epic summer hit ‘We No Speak Americano’), and your friendly resident DJs Them Jeans
and Dan Oh

From Lyon, France via Buenos Aires, Argentina, Hugo Douster‘s kicking up a storm at the moment. We’ve posted a couple of his tracks already this week, but I figured I’d write a post bigging up the man himself. Douster gets his tribal and dancehall sound from cumbia villera, which is music from the shantytowns of Buenos Aires, and fuses it with catchy fidget and electro. A couple of us were lucky enough to hear him headlining a Mad Decent party with Diplo a few weeks ago at a pub in LA, where he brought the house down with one of the best sets I’ve seen in a year.
Check out the latest Douster remix which dropped last week on Rusko‘s Woo Boost EP:
• Rusko – Woo Boost (Douster Remix)
• Riva Starr – I Was Drunk (Douster Remix)
gypsy fidget with a beautiful ending
• Yolanda Be Cool – Afro Nuts (Douster Remix)
whistles + bongos. ’nuff said
