Lunar Lunes: Just A Gent flips RL Grime and graves, The Knocks put their spin on Houses’ ‘Fast Talk’ + moreJust A Gent

Each week, New Music Friday sweeps through with torrential force, showering streaming platforms with immeasurable amounts of new tunes. Just like Dancing Astronaut rounds up 25 of the biggest songs of the week for the Hot 25 Spotify playlist each New Music Friday, Lunar Lunes serves as a landing pad for SoundCloud users who want a whole new dose of tunes to kick off the work week.

Just A Gent steps up to the remixing plate once again with a fierce reworking of RL Grime and graves‘ “Arcus,” as do The Knocks with their remix of Houses’ “Fast Talk.” Dillon Francis crafts his most contagious song yet with “Catchy Song,” featuring That Girl Lay Lay and T-Pain, and techno duo Gettoblaster bring “Get Dat” to Dirtybird. Paris Blohm taps Romysa for a gorgeous new single, “Warriors.” Flite flexes his drum & bass muscles on a feisty remix of Skrillex and Habstrakt‘s iconic “Chicken Soup,” and Kwon puts a laid-back spin on Hotel Garuda‘s “One Reason.” Adrian Lux unveils an extended cut of “Meditation,” and Kramder goes all in on a “raw sauce mix” of Splinta’s “Shock Therapy.” GANZ takes on Kovacs’ “My Love” in a new remix, and Barely Alive turn up the volume on a ferocious dubstep original, “Wack.”

The selection is updated every Lunes (Monday).

Los Angeles is not just Sacha Robotti‘s new home, but also his residence.

The news is out that Sound nightclub has officially booked the Dirtybird veteran and Sloth King for a summer residency beginning on June 23. To boot, each show will also be an open-to-close affair, allowing him to showcase his full essence as an artist.

Ahead of this expansive collaboration, Robotti has prepared an exclusive Sloth Sanctuary mix for Dancing Astronaut ears to consume. He fits quite a large breadth of tunes within its one hour span, starting off slow and grooving before heading into the dark and driving techno realm. It breeds further interest as to what a six hour set by this stalwart might sound like while also packing in a high charged mix of tunes that is sure to boost any pre-game.

DA Premiere: Mikey Lion & Sacha Robotti fire up the grill with ‘Glide,’ from forthcoming Dirtybird BBQ compilation [Full Tracklist]

This post was originally published on this site

Summer is upon us — and with the scorching summer heat means it’s barbecue time…at least for the Dirtybird crew. This year, Claude VonStroke has announced plans to roast up three lucky U.S. cities with house music mischief as Dirtybird BBQ plans to touch down in Los Angeles, Austin, and Oakland.

To celebrate the annual summer affair, Dirtybird Records is releasing a massive compilation, dubbed Filthy Flavor, full of familiar friends and fresh faces. The album brings that extra bit of sauce to get the flock fired up for the upcoming tour. Featuring Dirtybird favorites Kill Frenzy, German Brigante, Justin Martin, and Will Clarke, the all-star compilation kicks off with a booty shaking collaboration, titled “Glide,” by label mainstay Sacha Robotti and Desert Hearts head honcho Mikey Lion.

“Sacha Robotti and I work so well in the studio together and we made this track specifically with Dirtybird in mind,” Mikey Lion tells Dancing Astronaut. Lion elaborates,

“I feel like this release is a crazy full circle story because back in 2009, I accidentally stumbled upon Claude’s private birthday party with all of the Dirtybird Crew playing. Before that party I was playing hard, banging electro-house and that show really opened my eyes to much more sophisticated styles of house music. To have our track, “Glide,” be featured on the BBQ Compilation on one of my favorite labels is a major milestone for me.”

Similarly, Robotti was also excited to work with the crew at Dirtybird,

“After our “Ol’ Dirty Hearts EP” that Mikey Lion and I released on Desert Hearts last year, I’m very happy that our newest creation ‘Glide” found a home on one of my favorite labels ever Dirtybird. “Glide’ has been destroying dance floors wherever we played it, so we’re excited to share it with you on the Dirtybird BBQ “Filthy Flavor” Compilation! Thanks for your support!”

Marked by clean kicks, bouncy bass lines, and catchy synth progressions, “Glide” is the leading track off the album compilation ahead of Dirtybird BBQ, which will be smoking meats and spinning beats this weekend in Austin, Texas. Stay tuned for Dancing Astronaut‘s live Snapchat takeover Saturday, May 19th, beginning at noon CT.


Be on the look out for the full Filthy Flavor compilation, arriving Friday, May 18, with preorder available here. Tickets to Dirtybird BBQ are on sale now.
