Music Monday with Dirty D: EDC edition

I am back as your host, Diana a.k.a Dirty D (as some of you may call me LOL). I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.  Let’s get right down to business.  If you didn’t know, the spectacular Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) was this weekend! This year was once again it hosted in the notorious sin city, Las Vegas NV at the Motor Speedway.  EDC is one the largest electronic music festivals in the United States and its reputation keeps growing, so much so that this year was the first year to sell out.  Thousands of tickets were sold.  EDC is 3 days of 12 hours of nonstop music and each day seeming more spectacular than the next.  Now that’s how you party it up in Las Vegas!  This year EDC had 7 stages each with their own theme/style of electronic dance music.  Just to name a few different styles: trance, electro, house, dubstep, dnb, and hardstyles.  EDC is a place where you can be yourself or be who you want to be. You can dress up in outrageous outfits or be an average Joe in your everyday clothing and it would all be accepted.  That’s the beauty of the EDM scene there are no judgments.

Not only does EDC feature amazing musical talents but there is much more.  EDC has plenty visual amusements to keep you entertained in the whole experience there. In keeping with the carnival theme there are carnival performers all over the motor speedway grounds. Not only that, there are numerous carnival rides.  There is a giant Ferris wheel, a drop-zone type ride, a slide, and much more.  And before the night ends or should I say before the sun rises there is mind-blowing fireworks show that makes you stop what you’re doing to watch it. 

This year’s EDC also featured EDC week which means that there were many artists performing at different clubs/venues a week before the actually event; so if you didn’t get a chance to get tickets to EDC before they sold out, you had the opportunity to check some of artists out if you were in Las Vegas during the week. For more information about past EDC’s or for future ones go to or to

Unfortunately I wasn’t able to attend this year’s EDC for many reasons out of my control but I hope some of you did get a chance to go it, because it is a once in the life time experience that should at least be experienced once.

Sticking to the theme of EDC, I will be sharing music from a number of artists that performed at this year’s EDC.  I hope you enjoy!

Music Mondays in June with Diana!

It’s that time of the week readers; MUSIC MONDAY! Well let me introduce myself; my name is Diana Garcia and I am a big music fan of all genres but lately I have focused on the electric dance music (EDM), DNB/Jungle & Dubstep.  I enjoy sharing my love of music with my friends and family so one of my closest friends Valerie asked if I would help her out with Music Monday’s for her blog for this month of June.

There is just so much music out there I am always discovering something new and I would like to share some of my discoveries with you.  For this week’s Music Monday I will be sharing some dubstep tracks. I feel that it’s appropriate to start with dubstep since Tuesday is GRIMEY.

GRIMEY is Sacramento’s own dubstep/bass night and it’s located at Townhouse every other Tuesday featuring the latest dubstep/bass DJ’s and producers. GRIMEY’s residents are DJ WHORES and DJ CRESCENDO and the sound is by FathomSound.  The tremendous sound system of FathomSound and combination of great bass artists at GRIMEY is an event that you wouldn’t want to miss.  If hearing/feeling hard-hitting bass is your thing than this is the place to be on Tuesday.

Well let’s get back to the music. I have selected a few artists from one of my favorite dubstep music labels; DubPolice.  I have had the pleasure to see some DubPolice’s artists live at several different venues.  Dub Police has chosen some of the most talented artists to be on their label so I am not surprised that every time I have seen one of their shows I have never been disappointed. Here are just a few of my favorite artists and their tracks from DubPolice and I hope you enjoy:

“Champion Skank” – Caspa

“Fabrication” – Emalkay

“Ultra Skank” – KGB

“Turn Me On” – Subscape

Sneak Peak for next week’s Music Monday:

Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) is this upcoming weekend so I will be featuring music from artists that will be performing at EDC. Stay tuned in.
