Take a dash of funk, a spoonful of electro, two cups of dub, and pound of dance. Mix it all together. Chill it out. Sprinkle with Diplo. Serves a billion. Now, prepare yourself for the tasty and groundbreaking release of “P.O.V 2.0”, the follow up release of the original “P.O.V” by The Death Set. With “P.O.V 2.0”, a mastermind reworking has been produced by Diplo and The Partysquad, and it is just a whole new level of gritty/sexy/delicious fun. Described as “a punk, electro banger”, this track has something that will appeal to basically anyone who enjoys good music in all its various incarnations. Put together so flawlessly, “P.O.V. 2.0” is a work of art that will make you dust off your mirror and brush up on your twerkin’ skills, or (in my case) just dance like a total maniac because when music is this good, who cares about dance moves. Plug in, turn it up, and get down on this anthem of epic proportions.

IllSkillz has a very important question to ask of you today, and that question is “Who Is Crazy?” with the release of his newest EP, out right freaking now on Dim Mak Records! IllSkillz introduces fans to thundering beats and tingling vibrations with “Who is Crazy”, an EP made up of three tracks that will make your windows quake and your ass bounce as you dance yourself into insanity. The track “Let it Go (Original Mix)” has distinct and hyper sounds with the lyrical persuasion of Red N Pink sporting their signature grimey sound, while “Let it Go (Instrumental)” focuses more on the actual dubstep qualities of the same track. Three songs that would make any bass head proud to be an IllSkillz fan, “Who Is Crazy EP” brings us high quality bangers that we are indeed crazy about.

♫ Out Now: Keys N Krates – Treat Me Right EP

Keys N Krates have been around for like, five years and it seems to me like there is no better time to become a super fan of this duo than right freaking now. With the release of “Treat Me Right EP” and its respective remixes (provided by the likes of GRANDTHEFT, LAZERDISK PARTY SEX, AND THUGLI), they’ve given us the gift of a low-key yet outrageously dance-worthy masterpiece. The tempo is steady, the vocal overlay isn’t overwhelming and gets straight to the point, and there is an overall feeling of hearing musical magic that just feels right; it’s memorable and oh-so-enjoyable without feeling like you’re getting punched in the face by basslines and wibbly wobbly wubs. Keys N Krates bring their unique minds and musical prowess together brilliantly, as proven by “Treat Me Right” in all of its mellow and perfectly executed magic.

Romanthony: The Wanderer

344 246 Nikki

Screen Shot 2013-06-06 at 7.29.57 PM

Back in April, Dim Mak Records was proud to be the home of music legend ROMANTHONY for his release “The Wanderer” with Kevin McKay; a chill, laidback track with a handful of incredible remixes. “The Wanderer” was an instant hit with old fans of Romanthony’s and the gateway to his extensive music career for new fans. As you know, ROMANTHONY passed away at the beginning of May, leaving the music industry and thousands of fans shocked and deeply saddened by such a major loss.

Global website RESIDENT ADVISOR sat down with Romanthony’s friend and collaborator, Kevin McKay, for an interview about the legend perhaps most famously known for his work with Daft Punk; but, as McKay explains in the article, Romanthony’s career was far more intense, creative, and profound than many are even aware of. When describing the talent that is Romanthony, McKay had this to say: “He’s really great musically. Brilliant keyboard player, brilliant bass player, brilliant guitarist. Like, ‘Done, idea, that’s it, it’s happening, let’s go.’ Really quick and really creative, so really able to respond to each thing in the track”. 20 years of music under his belt, ROMANTHONY showed the kind of drive, determination and talent that is responsible for turning him into an international superstar. McKay states in the interview “I love his songs. I’m just a total fan. It’s really, really fucking sad that he’s not going to write any more songs”, which is perhaps the exact sentiment friends, family, and fans all share.

With such an enormous and natural gift as that possessed by this late musical genius, it’s no doubt that music industry has been forever changed. However, McKay offers a glimpse of hope in saying “I’ve had a chance to speak to his family and his closest advisors and we’re going to carry on as we did before bringing his songs to a new generation of dance fans, with the proceeds going to look after his kids.”
