WE HAVE MOVED

2013-11-16T09:41:48.622+00:00


The blog isn't dead, far from it. We've just made the move to tumblr (the new blog looks really slick). So click HERE to head on over and follow us for all the latest posts, DJ mixes and announcements from the GETDOWNORDIE crew.




DISCLOSURE / F FOR YOU / ONRA REMIX

2013-10-01T02:43:27.724+01:00


Disclosure + Onra = 'F is for You' suddenly becoming a track that you can listen to at any time of the day or night, on or off the dancefloor. Grab it/listen to it below.

CHROMEO / OVER YOUR SHOULDER

2013-09-16T22:44:58.136+01:00


Chromeo. Are. Back.

Fuck you Daft Punk. Take your Random Access Memories and go suck on a big fat disco dick (just kidding, I can't get enough of that album you gaizzz). Grab the rather splendid new track below and stroke your own disco dick to it until the new album hits the shelves.

LEMMY ASHTON / OCTOBER MIX

2013-09-13T18:49:34.278+01:00


Lemmy Ashton makes his return with this rather splendid mix for October. With the return of the good old British rain, Summer is officially dead. So what better time than now - with everyone getting wrapped up in wooly jumpers, mittens and the ever fashionable rain mac - to explore the darker side of  the disco. As always, Lemmy delivers the goods. Prepare for jam after jam after booty bouncin' jam. If you're not going out tonight due to the shitty weather, have a bedroom party. Or if you do plan on braving the rains, get your weekend started right. You can download the mix below if you want to stick it on your iPoop.

Don't forget to catch Lemmy playing at Paradise, Scala, XOYO or The Nest from the 20th of this month onwards. His sets do not dissapoint.

SOUNDCLOUD CHART 005

2013-09-10T11:08:02.388+01:00


So Tokyo Wax went ridiculously well. A shit ton of hot babes and men in jazzy shirts rolled up so there was eye candy for all. Oh and the music was 100% on point from opening until closing. Soundstream, the Wolf Music guys and Henry Fry all got the kids dancing into the early hours. As per usual, keep your peepers peeled for news of our next party (we've got some really really REALLY fun stuff in the works).

Part five of the Soundcloud chart comes in at just under two and a half hours and there is sooooo much good shit rammed in there this time around. Originals and remixes from the likes of Dark Circles, James Curd, NT89, Paradise 100 and Visionist. Sit back, pop your headphones on and enjoy all that goodness.

TOKYO WAX / SOUNDSTREAM / WOLF MUSIC

2013-08-14T21:23:49.769+01:00


The next Tokyo Wax night is almost upon us. Are you ready for eight hours of the best in disco and house, crazy japanese people screaming at everything and everyone else just being super hot and super fine? If you find that party, let me know, it sounds fucking amazing. BUUUUT if you want something else to do on Saturday the 31st of August (that's this month by the way), then come on down to Peckham Palais (that's in Peckham by the way) and dance the night away to a special 3 hour set from the incredible Soundstream (that's an alias of Soundhack by the way) as well as sets from WOLF Music head honchos, Matt Neale and Stu Clark AND Henry Fry will be back again spinning the specials (he plays some really freaky eclectic shit but it's still really good and a whole lot of fun to dance to).

Tickets are available HERE and you can check out the Facebook Event page for more info HERE.

Plus, have a listen to the mixes below to get in the mood AND finally, check out the crazy video promo from Daruma Vision at the bottom of the post (do you like rabbits?).

SOUNDCLOUD CHART 004

2013-07-30T14:05:12.355+01:00


We're back after another rather little break (which I mainly spent getting boozy and eating far too much steak). This latest instalment of the Souncloud chart series is a big old pile of steaming goodness. All thirty tracks come to just under two and a half hours so you'll have no problems finding something to listen to today. I'll be posting about our next party either tonight or tomorrow so keep your eyes peeled for all the info.

STAY POSITIVE - BLOOD BROTHER: TÂCHES REMIX

2013-07-19T18:53:30.389+01:00


TÂCHES is a total wave machine right now. As in, he/she is making waves in all the right places. It's the right sound at the right time. This latest remix is going to sound great at 9PM on the balcony or by the pool. Ben Westbeech (otherwise known as Breach) supplies the vocals which make this perfect for singing along to when it gets dropped in 'the club'. Have a listen below and have a little dance. With rumours of TÂCHES releasing some completely new material in the Autumn, this summer and the months to come after are looking to be in TÂCHES favour.

BRANDON ROSSI & VILLA: BLACK PASSPORT

2013-07-18T01:03:56.694+01:00


Brandon Rossi and Villa of Practice Bravery are back again with some welcome backup from Curtis Williams. 'Black Passport', much like 'Friends & Foes' and 'Arena', takes things slow but that doesn't mean you can't vibe to it. Pump it loud in the car one afternoon this summer with the top down for full effect.

As solo artists, each of them are great. Together, they are incredible. I'm excited to see what else they churn out in the months to come.

HENRY FRY / JACK IT UNDER THE SHEETS

2013-06-18T11:04:29.788+01:00


For those of you who aren't familiar with our pal Henry, you may know him under his former guise of Good Hair or from his sets as one of the much loved Orlando Boom DJs. If that still doesn't ring any bells, this rather special mix should make you a lifelong fan. Rammed full of highly alternative disco jams for you to have highly alternative disco sex to. If you like what you hear and fancy a bit of a boogie-woogie, you can catch him supporting Zebra Katz tonight at White Heat (click HERE for event info).

SOUNDCLOUD CHART 003

2013-06-10T13:20:57.725+01:00


The third instalment in our Soundcloud chart series is HUGE. Thirty tracks which altogether comes to nearly three hours of music. There's a big selection of summery disco house tracks as well as some of that harder shit for those of you that aren't into that whole 'BBQ pool party on the rooftop' vibe.

IN FLAGRANTI / BRASH & VULGAR / DISCO 3000 EDIT

2013-06-06T17:25:48.450+01:00


Something rather special has just been dropped by Mustafa 3000. Otherwise known as Erol Alkan. This latest edit is up for free download. Grab it in preparation for the weekend's antics.

LUXE / MIXED BY LUXAR

2013-05-29T18:12:16.596+01:00


A few weeks ago, we got in contact with Tom Oke, that brilliant producer known as Luxar. We asked him if he'd be up for putting together a mix-tape for us. He said yes. Here is that mix-tape.

I think I (James) can safely say that this is definitely my favourite guest mix to date. It's quite unique in comparison to the rest with lots of nice little edits and sound clips making it more than just a mix. Featuring classic jams from the likes of Janet Jackson, MJ and Stevie Wonder as well as a few modern ones from Daft Punk, Darius and Luxar himself, this fifty minute musical trip has something for pretty much everyone. Stream it below or grab it as a download for later.

P.S. Watch out for the new Luxar EP coming later this Summer on Juicy.

PAWSA / TOMORROW

2013-05-17T18:35:27.320+01:00


Some brilliant new artists have popped up this year. There are a few that we plan to keep an eye on as they release new tracks, in the hopes that every release will be an improvement on the last. One artist who has been doing just that, is the cool cat known as Pawsa. Have a listen below to what he's managed to do with the vocals from the Gorillaz' 'Tomorrow Comes Today'. I think you'll agree with us when we say 'this is much better than the original and the Gorillaz should burn every copy of the original track and pay Pawsa a lot of money to produce every single one of their future releases'...

Maybe we went a bit over the top with that last bit...or all of it...

Nevertheless, if you like it, also have a listen to his brand spanking new, super fresh mega dope mix that's just full of those house jams we all love. Seriously though. Listen. Now.

CUE LOVE / 31.5.2013

2013-05-11T13:12:11.382+01:00


We're super excited about this one you guys. Friday the 31st of May, Dukes, London. Isaac Tichauer heading up the bill with support from Copy Paste Soul, Panda and - one of our favourite duos -  Just Kiddin. There's a lot of hype surrounding this event and with just a few weeks to go, you might want to grab yourself a ticket from HERE before they're all snapped up.

If you're not familiar with the artists on the bill (which if you should be if you're a regular reader of this blog), check out our post with a free download of Isaac Tichauers' latest EP by clicking HERE. If that's not enough, then check out the mixes we've chucked in below. Get acquainted then get your a$$ down to Dukes on the 31st for something special.

PRACTICE BRAVERY

2013-05-09T00:38:50.717+01:00


I don't usually post hip-hop or R&B as this has always mainly been an electronic music blog but I've been hitting up A VOLTA a lot recently and I have decided that Practice Bravery deserve a post. The coupling of Brandon Rossi and Villa (not the Villa you're thinking of) is just perfection. You can drive to these tracks, you can slow wind to these tracks and you can waste time to these tracks. Those are the only things that matter to me when it comes to hip-hop/R&B. Listen below and if you like what you hear, grab the tracks for yourself.

GETDOWNORDIE PRESENTS: CORCOVADO

2013-04-26T21:08:54.709+01:00


Every time Alex Moreno aka. Corcovado releases a new track, I download it. I import it to iTunes. I make sure I have enough room to move. I press play. I dance like a maniac for the next four minutes. Every time.

When I asked him to put together this mix, I didn't know what to expect as his style ranges from deep house to disco to booty-bass. What I got was the perfect combo of ghetto bass and the kind of house music that you listen to on those hot summers nights when things start to get really sticky. Corcovado has basically supplied us with one of the most perfect party mixtapes ever. Oh and guess what. It's yours. For free.

Listen below or download it for later. Either way, this mix is absolutely essential for your future happiness. Peace, Love and Corcovado.

LUXAR / SPRING EDITS

2013-04-21T17:32:34.897+01:00


Those who know me, will know that I've got a whole lot of time for anything that sounds like it's straight out of an 80's movie OST (Big Trouble in Little China, The Breakfast Club, The Warriors etc.). It's got to be guitar or synth heavy and it's got to be suitable for love making.

One of the reasons that I love Luxar so much is that everything he churns out has that wonderful retro sound that makes me want to drive to the beach and get weird in the sand with one of the locals for the summer. Which is EXACTLY how well produced synth-pop should make EVERYONE feel.

Go and purchase both tracks by clicking HERE. You can name your price so give the guy a ton of cash or if you're stingey, grab both of them for free.

SOUNDCLOUD CHART 002

2013-04-16T11:29:05.150+01:00


We're back once again. The past thirty days have seen nothing but great new releases from the likes of Bicep, Corcovado, French Horn Rebellion, Touch Sensitive and Viceroy (plus all the Daft Punk album teasers we've all seen flying around).

Now, I'm not speaking for the whole GETDOWNORDIE crew but I think this might have been the best month for new music in 2013 so far. Next month can't come soon enough (Random Access Memories - Expected on the 20th of May).
