While Clancy is finally starting to get some major label recognition with this most recent remix of Ellie Goulding, he has certainly remained the UK’s favorite secret weapon among many top bloggers. Clancy’s become one of the most exciting & prolific producers over the last twelve months & is always on point with his original production & his remix work. Clancy’s remix of “Tessellate” is another piece of quality deep house/deep disco, transforming the Ellie Goulding cover into a seductive dance floor track complete with a big Danny Daze-like pulsating bassline. Take a listen & get mesmerized…

For this week’s Artist Collab series for The Dirt, I’m very excited to be teaming up with one of the baddest DJs on the planet, Anna Lunoe. Along with her sorcery on the decks, Anna is a phenomenal producer, she has series remix game, her apparel line rocks, she kills it all across social media & pretty much dominates at life.

“New tune from Curses! Love the combination of bass/house/techno. I think we are all little tired of the 124 bpm deeper bassline house sound that got flogged last year, and this feels like its super fresh cooler cousin.”

We’ve been long time supporters of our good friend BetaTraxx, an L.A. producer who’s always been able to stay one step ahead when it comes to producing quality techno + electro. Following a similar philosophy as Boys Noize, BetaTraxx doesn’t set out to make cookie cutter, DJ-friendly, conventional dance music. He challenges himself to produce music that sets itself apart from the mainstream and, in the process, has come up with his own classical-inspired, synth-heavy brand of techno + electro.
Fresh off his “Rocktronica” collaboration with Chuckie & the one & onlySlash, we find BetaTraxx showing off more of his diversity with a couple of genre hopping remixes of Wiz Khalifa & The Killers. Big artists. Big remixes. BetaTraxx knows how to have fun with the big boys! Grab the two FREE downloads below and get loose.
It’s been a torrid 2013 for our LA compadres, Bixel Boys. Their short but sweet list of remixes/reworks/edits over the last several months reads like a who’s who of pop/R&B icons, both current and past. From Michael Jackson to Robin Thicke, Bixel Boys have put their own modernized stamp on popular (but not obvious) crowd favorites. This time around it’s the 1991 jam “Crazy” by Seal receiving the remix treatment. The remix fuses together sunny West Coast disco & house with deeper, soulful garage giving it a California UK vibe perfect for the upcoming Summer season. POOL PARTY APPROVED.

Louis La Roche’s latest + greatest song is a rework of the 1985 classic “Say I’m Your No. 1″ by Princess. LLR takes the RnB jam from yesteryear and flips it into a peak time disco charger. It’s high energy, it’s highly addictive and it’s free!
Grab the free download below + boogie like you’re No. 1!
The message is simple + the delivery is electrifying. Tesla Boy teams up with London crooner Tyson to ask the question “Do you want to dance?” And the answer is…most definitely. It’s that hot + heavy kind of dancing where you get just close enough to someone, you’re barely touching them. You can feel your breath on each other as you mirror one another on the dance floor. ”Broken Doll” is a dark + sexy electrosensual jam that will surely get your engine running on the dance floor and beyond.
Tesla Boy’s fantastic new album ’The Universe Made of Darkness’ is out now via iTunes. [HERE]
One of the standouts on Aeroplane’s most recent “Not-So-Monthly Mix” is the track “Love That Funk” by Alkalino. OG soul, funk, disco, house & techno producer Alkalino has been playing in clubs since the early 90s and knows what it takes to get a party going. ”Love That Funk” has party starter written all over with its energetic electro-boogie sound. A perfect Summertime party starter.
Thicke x Bix = bootleg flair. Our LA brethren Bixel Boys continue to keep things haute on the RnB tip with their latest edit of “Blurred Lines” by Robin Thicke. The one characteristic that sets the Bixel Boys apart from many other producers is they simultaneously have their fingers on the pulse of mainstream America AND underground America & continue to combine the two seamlessly & effortlessly. Simply put, when you put those two things together properly, you get real shit that’s real fun.
Grab this delicious new bootleg + enjoy…
ROBIN THICKE – BLURRED LINES [BIXEL BOYS VIP EDIT]
Not much else needs to be said about Clancy that we haven’t already said before. We love his sound & how he always seems to find the perfect balance between deep disco & deep house. Clancy elevates his game on each new track he puts out. His latest track, “The Way You Dance”, is a hypnotizing deep track with a repetitive groove. Even if you found yourself alone on the dance floor, “The Way You Dance” has the kind of infectious, repetitive groove that makes you just not give a damn, as long as you’re dancing.
