Like Kaskade, Chuckie is good at sporadically uploading free music to his SoundCloud — and yesterday was one of those occasions. Not only did he offer up an original bootleg of “Who Is Ready To Jump” and an SHM mashup called “Antikiss,” but he also gave us a preview of his upcoming release “Electro Dude.”
While the bootleg and mashup are good, the preview is even better. “Electro Dude” is so dirty you’ll probably need a shower after just one listen. The minor dirty Dutch elements mixed with electro sounds sound like a match made in musical heaven. Head over to Chuckie’s SoundCloud to claim your free downloads. Other DJ’s take note: sharing is caring.
Dancing Astronautfavorite Chuckie linked us to this exclusive preview last night. The dirty Dutch via Suriname DJ/Producer and fellow South Americans, Ortzy & Nico Hamuy, collaborate on this huge track that features uplifting chords and a classic house drop. No word on an official release date, but stay tuned.
This past Thursday, DJ Chuckie and DJ Vice brought their A-game — and SD cards — to Lavo NY for a night of debauchery, bottle-popping, and fun. We were there to soak in the sounds, which turned out to be quite eclectic and incorporated a refreshing bit of hip-hop into the usually house-heavy set. Vice and Chuckie alternated behind the decks for most of the night, with Mr. Dirty Dutch himself taking the mic multiple times during the night to shoutout New York City. One highlight was a never-ending bootleg of Sidney Samson’s “Mutate” with “Kick Out The Epic Motherfucker,” “One,” “Babylon,” and some Kanye West rap vocals. Like we said, it was eclectic. Head over to our Facebook page for the full album.
Beatport introduced Beatport Play today, a new platform designed to help give exposure to up-and-coming producers by offering exclusive remix contest opportunities. Launching alongside the service is a contest for Steve Aoki’s “Ladi Dadi,” off his latest album Wonderland (which we reviewed right here). There are also contests for Chuckie’s “What Happens In Vegas,” and Bingo Players’ “Rattle.”
The platform looks to be a direct competitor to Indaba Music, and supports submissions, voting, and judging all from within the Beatport site. Entrants can download parts of tracks to help them get started, but otherwise you’re able to get as crazy as you want. Given Beatport’s reach in the EDM community we’re sure that this’ll take off pretty quickly, and who knows, maybe we’ll end up with some more new breakout talent for the year 2012.
Marquee’s quest to become America’s undisputed #1 club continues with the announcement of its 2012 residencies. The list is impressive (by “impressive,” we mean “we have no idea how the folks at the Cosmopolitan can afford to bring in these guys each and every week, but we’re glad that they can”). In its second year, Marquee will welcome back Above & Beyond, Chuckie, Erick Morillo, Kaskade, and Markus Schulz. Redfoo will also return for his “Party Rock Mondays” residency, but with all due respect to the LMFAO-er, he didn’t belong in the previous sentence.
If you aren’t sufficiently impressed yet, Marquee will also bring ATB, Benny Benassi, and Dirty South to the Vegas strip.
Click past the break to see Marquee’s schedule for January, February, and March. See you all in Vegas.
Check out this Vegas-inspired free bootleg Chuckie threw up on his Soundcloud last night. Chuckie takes a pretty standard hip-hop track and turns it into a dancefloor destroyer with a huge electro sound and massive drop. Chuckie’s transition between the hard electro and uplifting synths in the middle of the track are a testament to why we feel he is one of the best artists in the game.
We don’t usually post radio rips but felt the need to make an exception for this one. Dillon Francis takes Chuckie’s “Who Is Ready To Jump,” one of the top tracks of November, and turns it into an even bigger tune. Dillon drops the moombahton sound he’s best known for in favor of the more traditional dubstep vibe. Huge buildup and a giant wompy drop sure to terrorize dancefloors. Give this a listen and wait for the full length release on Monday Big Beat/CR2 records.
With the absurd influx of big name EDM talent coming to college campuses and the proliferation of dedicated college tours, we had a feeling that the trend would carry over to the biggest party of the year at every college: Spring Break. Well, Electro Beach PV is stepping up to the plate by launching the first EDM-centric party package in Puerto Vallarta and they’re bringing in some big talent to set the bar high. Avicii and Steve Aoki were previously confirmed artists for the event, but Chuckie, Dada Life, Porter Robinson, Manufactured Superstars, and LA Riots have also been added to the list. We’re told that there are still more surprises in store in terms of shows and talent, so keep checking their website for more.
The Electro Beach experience will run for six weeks from February 24th to April 6th, and passes will be sold on a weekly basis. They can be purchased for $199 for entry alone, but $349 gets you all-inclusive drinks, and another $50 scores VIP access. If you book travel through Electro Beach, you can also secure a reduced rate, so be sure to check out the website for all the information. Full party list as of today is below, and ticket purchase links will be active imminently.
Kelly Rowland’s “Down For Whatever” gets a shot of adrenaline courtesy of the King of Dirty Dutch – Chuckie. Fresh off the release of “Who Is Ready To Jump,” Chuckie has been classified as one of the pioneers of new age club music. His live sets regularly consist of a nice blend of hip hop and pop bootlegs along with his normal Dutch oriented tunes. More recently, Chuckie has remixed Sarvi’s “Amore” which gives off the same sort of vibe as “Down For Whatever.” This one should do well at the box office due to its release on Motown Records.
Arguably the two biggest releases from our industry in the last two years (“Stereo Love” and “Levels“) get mashed up by the Dirty Dutch king – Chuckie. Yes, both songs may or may not have been played out, but you would be lying to yourself if you think that you wouldn’t lose your shit in a club or pool party to this combination. Just thinking about how crazy all the hot women will be going if this is dropped in a live set is enough to click the download button. Take our word, play this mash up often and use it as your ‘not so secret’ weapon.
