Everybody likes the opportunity to do something for free, right? Because we love you so much, we’ve got 2 tickets to giveaway to next week’s Django Django and Beat Connection show at the 9:30 Club! For those unfamiliar with the artists, Django Django is an English art-rock/electronica group that has been compared to Hot Chip, Kraftwerk, and Cut Copy. They recently released their sophomore album, Born Under Saturn, which the Alternative Press hailed as “a worthy trip to a spacey dancehall.”
Seattle’s Beat Connection, on the other hand, is an electronic act that has drawn comparison to other contemporaries such as the Knocks and RAC. With indelible of remixes of Odesza and Jungle in recent memory, the group is now pushing forward in new directions seen on their latest single, “Illusion,” as they gravitate towards a fuller, lush vibe.
To win the tickets, ‘LIKE’ our Facebook page and send us a caption for the photo below with your name to email@example.com with the subject line ‘Django 9:30.’ The winner will be announced on Tuesday, 7/28. Good luck! Here’s the photo:
In March, we covered Yomimbi’s track “Ibiza Part II” that featured Ameer Dyson’s vocals. Ameer and Yomimbi have teamed up again for a track they are releasing with Jackin Records, a European artist collective/record label/collective. The track, titled “South Beach,” has all the ingredients of a proper house tune: a bouncy bass line, a catchy melody and vocal hooks, and a beautiful use of percussion and effects. There’s no doubt Yomimbi and Ameer Dyson are a match made in #HouseHeaven. Listen and download “South Beach” for free:

To help get you in the mood, here’s the new single from Shift K3Y & Born Dirty. It’s a massive club track that’s a throbbing, bass hungry monster guaranteed to melt the floor. It’s a fun cross between more club oriented, electro sounds and the current G House trend that makes you want to bounce as soon as the bass drops in. Check it out:
Texas-based artist Pass the 40 just released a track on Main Course that will shake you to the core. As the saying goes, everything is bigger in Texas, and “American Pimp” exemplifies this. With its thumping kick drum and sub bass, this track has an enormous sound that bumps like no other. The vocal sample pertains to pimping and makes the track even more intriguing.
