The roots of modern dance music lie in late-night discos, weekend circuit parties, and the urban underground counter-cultures of New York, Miami, Berlin, Amsterdam, London, Los Angeles, and, of course, San Francisco. This month, we celebrate dance music’s colorful past, present, and future within the global LGBTQ community including the 10 landmark moments, musical heroes, nightclubs, releases, and parties that have inspired us all to dance. Respect where respect is most definitely due.

Welcome to our tight Wednesday edition of the Morning Roundup. Today, we’ve got Richie Hawtin chatting a possible Deadmau5 collaboration, The Juan MacLean prepping their third album In A Dream, and Horse Meat Disco live and in-the-mix for Boiler Room. Right this way for our complete wrap-up.
GusGus are one the most influential bands to emerge from the notable electronic music scene in Iceland. Their ability to effortlessly weave together combinations of techno, house, and experimental pop has led to both an impressive back catalog spanning nearly two decades, and an uncompromising aesthetic that is distinctly their own. This week, GusGus release their ninth studio album, Mexico — a vibrant, pop driven affair that follows on from 2011′s broody but dancefloor friendly Arabian Horse. Setting an instantly playful tone, Mexico delivers a collection of smooth, intelligent, and slickly-produced tracks that combine cutting-edge pop sensibilities with a lighter, more emotional club feel. Last week, Beatport News was fortunate enough to chat to Biggie Veira and Högni Egilsson about the recording process, their studio gear, and their future plans.
