The Interview

DM:
Tell us about Friends of Friends. How did you come up with the concept?

BROWN:
It was just a way of tying a bunch of things together. When I used to shop for records, I would always looks at 3 things. The art, the collabs and the label. Those three would basically tell you about someones aesthetic, who they’re friends with or who respects their music enough to work with them and their general vibe. I wanted that all to ring true immediately for FoF releases, so I ask every artist about who they might know that can help them make their release special. Would way rather that than some random a&r decisions like “get a hot vocalist” or whatever. We try and make it about building a community of friends that all make great art. And the releases come out great because of it.

DM:
What separates FoF from other labels/brands in the same market? Your website states that the name “Friends of Friends” is “the driving force behind the label and website, referring to the most effective way (yet traditional way!) people learn about new music: through Friends!” Tell us how this process works!

BROWN:
I kind of touched on it in the last answer but basically the people closest to you are the ones who want to see you succeed the most. So we try and incorporate all of FoF’s artists friends and our friends of friends in our planning of say, releases and remixes, all the way down to our website’s news and bookings for events etc. It’s about hopefully showing the world that FoF is a network of talented and passionate people that can all build careers by supporting one another’s art.

—-

DM:
Young Adults is your side project with David Fisher. Tell us how this collab came about and the connection with your label.

BROWN:
Ah, D is just one of my oldest and best friends. We’ve DJed together for about 8 years now. We played house parties mostly for years… total bedroom DJs. For the longest time the US wasn’t really fucking with what we playing. A lot of German techno, old disco and house records etc. We just kept it low-key for a while. But a few years back we started really talking about starting a label and last year we finally made it a reality. YA is FoF’s “sister label.” We wanted to push vinyl, slow mixes, long songs and all that as a counter to the laptop DJ culture that’s been everywhere. We’ve put out 3 records now and have played started playing out a ton. This summer we got to take over the Ace Hotel Palm Springs for a weekend, opened for Omar S at A Club Called Rhonda and now headlining Dim Mak Tuesdays. Been a pretty awesome ride so far :)

—-

DM:
We’ve heard Friends of Friends referred to as “a collective.” Who exactly comprises this collective and how does one become a part of it?

BROWN:
Honestly it’s pretty nebulous. I can name so manyyyy people who are extended fam but i guess it starts by the artist releases put out by the label. Salva, Shlohmo, Groundislava, Tomas Barfod, LOL Boys, Jerome LOL, Ernest Gonzales, Evenings and our newest signees Kyson and Perera Elsewhere all make up the crew now. But we’ve also had amazing more friends built through compilations, artist/project collabs, remixes and shows etc. People like Daedelus, Baths, Grenier, Low Limit, Robot Koch, Toy Selectah, the Wedidit and Anticon teams…I mean really this paragraph could go on forever. We’re very fortunate to have an extended network of rad talented people. On the video/visual side as well! I see you Great Nordic Swordfight, Video Marsh and Sus Boy :)

—-

DM:
What are your plans/dreams/goals for 2013, both individually as an artist as well as for Friends of Friends? How would you like to expand FoF?

BROWN:
MY DREAM IS EVERYONE FALLS IN LOVE WITH KYSON & PERERA ELSEWHERE(our newest signings) LIKE I HAVE. Haha, but seriously my goal is to just stay on course. Definitely been building the infrastructure of FoF as a label. We signed a distribution deal in UK/EU with !K7 which I’m really excited about. We’ve been wanting to get our music out internationally way more so that’s definitely a great step. And really focus on continuing to develop good relationships and partnerships with other people doing rad things. Oh I guess also planning our anniversary stuff for ’14. Can’t believe it’s gonna be 5 years!!

#FreeFriday

TGIF? No! TGIFF! “Thank god it’s f*cking Friday” with this week’s #FreeFriday giveaway!

Who knew driving speed limit could be so good?! The track has an authentic Texas chop/screw vibe with shades of an Atlanta trap influence.

USA Today: 6 emerging artists to catch at Lollapalooza [Keys N Krates]

August 3, 2013 Tim Gauthier Uncategorized Tags: , , , ,

While it’s all well and good to rattle off a list of accomplishments, sometimes it’s just easier to name-drop. Keys N Krates has toured and played alongside Bassnectar, Skrillex, Kid Cudi, Pretty Lights, Major Lazer, Girl Talk and Zeds Dead in recent years, and received support from notable electronic artists such as Diplo and TNGHT. There’s a smorgasbord of talent in this Toronto-based trio — Dave Matisse on keyboards, Adam Tune on drums and Jr. Flo on turntables — which has been blending electronic and trap music with rap beats since 2008. They played SXSW, Ultra and Wakarusa music festivals, and are getting ready to release their SoLow EP in September. (via USA Today)

Nobody does up all night DIRTY like the Dim Mak boys at Beatpatrol Festival 2013. In fact, if we were to rate the content of this video according to tit size, we’d say it’s pretty much THE DOUBLE DEEZ. Witness Tai, Deorro, Datsik, Autoerotique, Angger Dimas, South Central, Dirtyphonics, Proxy, Haezer, and the boss man himself Steve Aoki, as they bring the party to Europe, Dim Mak style, in Part I of our Beatpatrol 2013 series. We’re talking vodka flowing like wine, bottles poppin’, hot girls, fire explosions, crowd-surfing, pulsing lights, heavy beats…in the words of Autoerotique, “EDM man, this is all EDM right here.” Erotic Drunken Mayhem? We’ll let you be the judge! Stay tuned for Beatpatrol Part II as the Dim Mak crew takes their 48-hour European all nighter to the next level!

A STATE OF CARNAGE (EDC 2013 Aftermovie)

July 30, 2013 Tim Gauthier Video Tags: , , ,

If there’s one DJ that’s really making a mark on both EDM music and culture right now, it’s Carnage. With DJ support from Tiësto, Avicii, A-Trak, Porter Robinson, and Paul Oakenfold, to name a few, his own “Carnage Presents: INCREDIBLE” radio show on Sirius XM’s Electric Area, and his explosive performance at EDC 2013, Carnage has become an EDM icon – a trance god. In this fourteen minute documentary-style video, Carnage grants us an all-access, VIP backstage pass to his life as he parties on a first-name basis with heavy hitters like Tiesto and Morgan Page, takes his “trill as f*ck” grandma with him to EDC, lays down the beats in front of thousands of people, and describes the exhausting yet surreal journey he’s been on as he continues to, in his own words “do this for the people.” DISCLAIMER: only watch this video if you don’t mind hearing “twerk, turn up, and trill” used in the same sentence. But we know you love it.

With the recent release of His collab “Michael Jordan” with Tony Junior, which has received DJ support from tastemakers such as Martin Solveig who dropped it in his set at Tomorrowland over the weekend, Carnage’s star is rising to the top at an unprecedented speed.

CARNAGE TOUR DATES

[Thump Exclusive] Felix Cartal – Young Love Feat. Koko LaRoo (Official Video)

July 29, 2013 Tim Gauthier Video Tags: , , , , , ,

Felix Cartal’s new video for “Young Love,” the first single off his upcoming Past Present Felix EP and starring vocals from Koko LaRoo, is basically about a bunch of babes in bikinis bouncing on bicycles and bashing balloons at boys. Hope you like the letter B.

Opening shot: four ripped bros strolling down a Vancouver sidewalk. “I just finished lunch with the guys,” the main muscly guy who forgot to button his shirt says on his phone [italics are mine]. “I’m just chilling at the pool with the girls,” purrs a buxom babe at the end of the line as she slowly spreads oil all over her assets [italics again mine]. This delineation between the sexes is extremely important because it sets up the rest of the storyline, which is a—spoiler alert—PRANK WAR: GIRLS VERSUS GUYS!!!

As soon as the bros arrive at the pool (so jelly of that gigantic floating pretzel btw), guns and carnage ensue. Is this a sly political commentary on gun control laws in America? Nah… let’s just stick with balloons and boobs.

Past Present Felix comes out August 6 on Dim Mak Records. Pre-order the EP here, or grab this track on iTunes.

Ubiquitous drummer Travis Barker and electro master Steve Aoki have joined forces on a remix of “Push ‘Em”, a track from Barker and rapper Yelawolf’s 2012 EP Psycho White.

“Travis Barker is hands down my favorite musician to work with,” Dim Mak label founder and veteran remixer Aoki tells Rolling Stone. “Whether it’s original material like we did on ‘Misfits’ or ‘Cudi the Kid,’ or doing this remix for his group. . . [Barker] has the best vocal samples to use for a stomping club record.”

Happy Tuesday everyone, I hope you made your weekends vast and epic as you should. I just wanted to touch base with everyone, catch up, and recap some time I spent last weekend with Infected Mushroom. The Israel-bred, LA based duo is made up of Amit “Duvdev” Duvdevani, and Erez Eisen. They started collaborating in 1997 in Kiryat Yam, Haifa District, Israel.

In addition to twice being voted into the top 10 for DJ Magazine’s Top 100 DJ’s, they have also left footprints in both dance and rock genres, having worked with Perry Farrell from Jane’s Addiction and Jonathan Davis from Korn.

The two have released such hit albums as 2009’s Legend of the Black Shwarma, which peaked at #9 on Billboard’s Top Electronic Albums chart, scored such dance hits as “Killing Time” and “Smashing the Opponent,” and to top it all off, they average about 120 live performances a year. Boom goes the dynamite. Also, out today on Dim Mak Records, “Friends on Mushrooms, Vol. 2.”

Now these live performances brought about a revolutionary live show, which I’m sure you’ll know what I’m talking about if you’ve ever been to one of their gigs. The set is a 3D landscape designed by Vita Motus Design Studio and V Squared Labs; it is truly one of a kind, and they brought it to the Avalon this past Saturday, July 7th to have a little playtime with the L.A. fans. I had the good fortune to steal a quick conversation with them before they hit the stage. (via MAGNETIC MAG)

Music Video: Botnek – “Through The Night” [THUMP Exclusive]

July 15, 2013 Tim Gauthier Video Tags: , , , , , ,

Steve Aoki star students Botnek are back with a new video for “Through The Night,” their first single since last year’s spicily-titled Sriracha & Beer EP. Think of the two dudes, Erick Muise and Gordon Huntley, as Montreal’s version of Crookers (you know, while there were still two of them)—two party maestros who love emotional piano breakdowns, double fisting beers, and helping you have a TOTALLY EPIC time.

Fittingly, the video chronicles one long night out with the boys as they tumble from their studio to the center stage of a club filled with unicorn heads and hot chicks, before ending up at a groupie-packed after-party with even more hot chicks. Two themes persist throughout their perilous odyssey: getting wasted and awkward dancing. (via THUMP)

The Bloody Beetroots Premiere Video for “Out Of Sight” feat. Paul McCartney & Youth

July 9, 2013 Tim Gauthier Music, Video Tags: , , , ,

McCartney & Youth on MTV! The video, directed by Charlie Lightening (P!nk, Arcade Fire, Bjork) who also directed the video for “Church of Noise,” sees The Bloody Beetroots in his natural habitat, rocking out and orchestrating a haunting choir – with an appearance by the legendary Paul McCartney himself! The Bloody Beetroots will release the forthcoming album HIDE on September 17th (Ultra Music). PRESS HERE to purchase “Out of Sight” on iTunes.

Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo, alias The Bloody Beetroots has always been an anomaly amidst the cocooned trends and coddled pedigrees of dance music. After fits and starts in Italian garage-punk bands, Rifo launched The Bloody Beetroots in 2007 and over the next few years, he would win the support of electro house heavyweights Etienne de Crecy and Alex Gopher in Europe and Dim Mak’s Steve Aoki stateside. On Rifo’s watch, anything’s not only possible – but from the sheer vastness of sounds and media that have materialized – probable as well. From the start Mr. Bloody Beetroot has been capable of seamlessly crossing genres, diving into everything from new wave to the primal screams of hardcore punk.

His most recent collaborations include studio sessions with Youth and remixing Killing Joke, an opportunity very few are entitled to. After working closely with Dennis Lyxen from The Refused on the single smash club record “Church of Noise,” Rifo developed an online community and cult following that embraces the freedom of art, speech and chaos – www.therealchurchofnoise.com. From one-man studio production to full live band shows with The Bloody Beetroots Live and DJ show touring as The Bloody Beetroots DJ set, Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo is a pioneer, reinventing the landscape of electronic music. Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo is currently touring as The Bloody Beetroots LIVE – See below for upcoming tour dates!

For all EDM’s pop aspirations, it rarely nails that elusive crossover as perfectly as this extended serotonin rush of a song, which floods your brain just as forcefully whether you hear it in a field full of wide-eyed first-time ravers or waiting in line at the grocery store.
