DA’s Best of the Rest: Tuesday July 17, 2012
It is almost impossible to keep up with the constant influx of new music that hits our inboxes here at Dancing Astronaut but that doesn’t mean we won’t try our best to keep our loyal readers on the pulse of everything dance music related. There were two huge event announcements today from Goldenvoice and Insomniac, a unique remix of an indie classic from Robbie Rivera, a making of video featuring two of the most beautiful women in dance music today, some nu-disco gems and a radio show from none other than Thomas Gold. Read on after the break for the Best of the Rest from Tuesday, July 17th 2012.
