SAVOY – S.C.R.E.A.M. (w/ Lobounce & Bright Lights)

We are now getting very comfortable with the collaborators SAVOY and Bright Lights as the team has released both a popular rock infused electro collab “I Dare You” and their more recent, more dubstep-esque endeavor “12 So Bad.” The team seams to work well together as each release shows their evolution and maturation in the music industry. They are back yet again with another new original this time the co-conspirators are also joined by a brand new addition, Giancarlo Pasquesi. Known in the music world by his moniker, Lobounce, the young DJ brings his signature “drippy bass” into the mix. This, like all of SAVOY’s music, is available for free download!

Solidisco (ft. Nina Simone) – Feeling Good

Solidisco is the fastest growing name in disco house music. With a fresh recipe that revitalizes the classic house sound with today’s musical trends, it’s no surprise they’re gaining popularity at unprecedented speeds. Having just remixed The Knocks and Kanye West, we are now gifted a free, original download from the duo hailing from Buffalo. This record has been a staple in their sets for a while now but only as an ID. Finally the full version has surfaced bringing the swing movement into electronic music. “Feeling Good” is a blast to dance too, so be sure to catch Solidisco at the Sunset Music Festival this Memorial Day Weekend!

Paces – Can’t Touch Me Feat. Madeline Vida

Following on from the radio and online success of his previous EP “Julian” Paces is back with another slice of good vibes. Featuring the vocal talents of Madeline Vida ‘Can’t Touch Me’ sees Paces staying true to his unique sound; kalimbas, bright chords, catchy pop vocals, a dash of Jersey Club and Future Beats, and most importantly… vibes for days. The single ‘Can’t Touch Me (feat. Madeline Vida)’ is out today on Perth electronic label DIEHIGH. Guys like Paces, Ta-Ku, and Cashmere Cat are all set to have break out years as the genre blending beats they are releasing are grabbing the attention of the masses. It may be another year before he leaves his island paradise in Australia, but I’m sure when he hits the states there will be a cult following for this guy!

AC Slater – Back To The Floor EP

It’s been nearly a year since the inception of Skrillex‘s multi-purpose media platform, Nest HQ, and now the curatorial site will also serve as home to a free-release label known simply as Nest. Today Bassline aficionado AC Slater kicks things off with his club-ready inaugural EP, Back To The Floor.  AC Slater has compiled a collection of five club-ready jams, in which the heavy bass champion provides a call to action to return to a focus on music and not so much the DJ. AC explains – “Back to the Floor is just a statement of where my head is at musically. Taking the focus from the superstar DJ concert back to the clubs. The whole “put your hands up” and shit is cool but it’s kinda played out for me personally. I want to focus more on the music and how it makes the individual feel. Everyone having their own experience and vibing out in the club rather than watching someone tell them what to do. It doesn’t have to be on 10 all the time. It’s okay to zone out and get lost in the music…” We couldn’t agree more with what AC Slater says and his music truly lifts up to his words. Download the EP here or through the Soundcloud links below.

ODB – Shimmy Shimmy Ya (Worthy’s Raw Remix) [FREE DOWNLOAD]

Today we present to you a completely new piece of music from the vaults of Worthy, available exclusively for you to play, download, share with friends, burn, edit, remix, bootleg, the possibilities are boundless. Worthy, a member of the Dirtybird team, remarks, ”I had an idea a year ago to do a remix of ‘Shimmy Shimmy Ya’, but was so focused on producing my full-length album that I had to put it on the back burner. When I went at it this year, it just came together so perfectly. I think since Wu Tang recently came out with new material, the energy was out there and the Shaolin came down and blessed me creatively. The track is the perfect blend of bass and suspense that I love in my songs.” Get ready to shimmy right into your weekend with this one! Also be on the lookout for his EP coming out April 21st via OWSLA!

We should also point out that Worthy and the rest of the Dirtybird crew received the 2014 IDMA (International Dance Music Awards) award for Best Indie/Underground Music Label. This is a huge honor and shows you just how far Claude VonStroke’s label has come. It’s impressive that a producer like Worthy and anyone else on the Dirtybird label can all have similar sounds but stay supremely unique in their own ways. That booty bass, Tech-House sound will always exist throughout Dirtybird productions but it really takes these special artists to remain exclusive in sound. Big ups to Worthy on “Shimmy Shimmy Ya”!
