Clancy – Take It Slow

Clancy

Clancy continues to thrive as one of House music’s best mood setters.  Whether it’s a one on one exchange with a beautiful stranger on a dark dance floor or a late night drive through the Hollywood Hills, the mood is always elevated when Clancy’s sounds are pulsating through the speakers.  His latest track, “Take It Slow”, is another quality mood setter that gives you a feeling like you’re about to do bad things but makes you end up realizing that making wrong decisions & doing bad things were the right things to do all along.

Ghostea – Still Sippin EP

Ghostea - Still Sippin

Central coast California producer Nathaniel Stevens, aka Ghostea, is a an excellent fit for the Perfect Driver Music crew.  Perfect Driver are on a roll this year with a string of cutting edge, stylish & intelligent releases.  Like their February release of “Got Em” by Lux Groove, Ghostea incorporates a much welcomed Breaks sound into his songs & the result is a refreshing new style that puts Perfect Driver well ahead of the curve.

The “Still Sippin” EP is full of deep, atmospheric breaks & smooth vocals (by Millie Mayz) and still packs a formidable punch.  The “Still Sippin” EP is out now via Perfect Driver Music.

Craig Williams & Charles I – “This Is It” EP

this is it

The collaboration between Craig Williams & Charles I is a pairing of two highly skilled production maestros with great heads of hair.  The two L.A. based producers (Craig by way of Sydney) are craftsmen when it comes to making electronic music.  Each has a diverse style but both have excelled when it comes to producing gritty Electro & after hours Techno.  Craig Williams & Charles I’s new “This Is It” EP lives up to that reputation.  The opening title track is a late night warehouse track with the perfect amount of glossy bass & energetic effects to pump up any 4am crowd.  The peak time track on the EP is “Increase The Doses” driven by its dynamic synth work & scintillating percussion.  The closeout track, “Work”, is a deep Techno workout capped off with brassy Electroclash vocals – a most fitting bookend to this dark, sweaty, super stylish EP.

The production is multi-layered & brilliant, each track is memorable & outstanding and the artwork is badass – THIS IS AN EP NOT TO BE MISSED.  “This Is It” EP is out now via Discobelle Records.

Nikitin – This My Shit [The Beatangers Remix]

this my shit

Sometimes a quick shout out on social media can go a long way.  Yesterday our friends over at Harder Blogger Faster Tweeted four simple words: “This is very good”.  The Tweet was accompanied by a link to The Beatangers remix of “This My Shit” by Nikitin.  And now, here we are posting about it.  If you like a song, say something about it.  The repost button on SoundCloud, a YouTube link on Facebook or a simple Tweet…these things can go a long way.

The remix package for “This My Shit” is a stellar one with remixes by Kolombo, Sammy W & Alex E and L.O.O.P.  The personal stand out for me is The Beatangers remix.  It’s a dirty combination of Indie-Electro & G-House, giving the song a Blog House feel harking back to a sound that mid-2000s Tiga perfected & late-2000s Grum ran away with.

“This My Shit” remix pack is out now via LouLou Records.

Pat Lok – Move Slow [GANZ Remix]

pat lok x ganz

Last month we featured Pat Lok’s new single “Move Slow”, a song that takes seductive sleaze to a whole new level.  ”Move Slow” is classy, trashy, unique and fun.  This time around, Dutch producer GANZ darkens things up on his remix, turning “Move Slow” into a chilling, sexy anthem.

The “Move Slow” remix EP featuring Ganz, SirOJ, WMNSTUDIES, & Jeffrey Jerusalem is out April 4th on BMKLTSCH RCRDS.

The Cure – Just Like Heaven [The Penelopes Remix]

cure x penelopes

As a rock band whose style is heavily influenced by dark, synth-based, big bands of the 80s, it makes perfect sense for The Penelopes to remix their heroes, The Cure.  The Penelopes’ exquisite remix of “Just Like Heaven” by The Cure is so full of sunshine & bounce that even the most pale, sun deprived Goth wouldn’t think twice about putting on their best black swimsuit & frolicking in the sun while dancing to this one.  Don’t forget that SPF 100 & waterproof mascara!

The Penelopes have a big 2014 lined up with a brand new single coming out in mid-April along with an accompanying video & hot remix package.  Can’t wait for that!  Until then, enjoy this heavenly new remix…

Jonas LR – Cockiness

Property of Gotta Dance Dirty

It’s hard to imagine sexpot Rihanna sounding anymore desirable than she already does but her 2011 throwback track “Cockiness” gets sex-leveled up by 18-year old Leeds producer Jonas LR.  With chopped up, smoothed out vocals over luscious UK garage/future bass beats,  RiRi never sounded so hot.

This Jonas LR sex jam has made the rounds on a few fantastic mixtapes recently including Kloak’s GDD™ Guest Mix and Kaytranada’s Spring Mixtape for Bromance.  Ooh la la.

Disclosure – You & Me ft. Eliza Doolittle

Property of Gotta Dance Dirty

 

I couldn’t have imagined a better way to close out Coachella this year than by watching the Disclosure boys rock the Gobi Tent.  Their blistering set was the perfect end to an amazing weekend.  The set ended with two special guest vocalists, Jessie Ware on “Running” and Sam Smith on “Latch” (see below).  No offense to the Red Hot Chili Peppers or Eric Prydz, but if you weren’t at Disclosure to close out the festival, you were doing it wrong.

Midway through their set, Disclosure announced that they were playing a new track off their upcoming album.  The track turned out to be “You & Me” featuring Eliza Doolittle, and despite the fact that nobody in the crowd had heard the song before, it did little to deter them from cuttin’ some serious rug (or in this case, some serious grass).  Check out “You & Me” below and get to steppin’.

• New single ‘You & Me’ available April 28th
• November UK Tour Announced! Pre-Sale details here: www.disclosureofficial.com
• Album featuring ‘Latch’, ‘White Noise’ and ‘You & Me’ available for pre order www.disclosureofficial.com
• The Album ‘Settle’ out June 3rd

Jakwob – Fade [Le Youth Remix]

Property of Gotta Dance Dirty

It’s always a treat to hear something new from our L.A. compadre Le Youth.  The sound of Le Youth transcends the overly familiar brands of tropical/deep/nu disco sounds we’ve been over exposed to over the last few years.  Le Youth has created a brand of electronic all his own.  It’s a modernized throwback sound that fuses together all the right elements of sunny disco & old school house.  His latest remix of “Fade” by Jakwob balances that disco/house sound brilliantly.  Whether it’s billowing through the speakers at a club & filling the room with joy or sweeping over the sands of a beach party, Le Youth’s remix of “Fade” will keep any party going, daytime or night.
