June 27, 2013 Tim Gauthier Lifestyle, Video Tags: , , , , , , , , , , ,

Dim Mak goes south to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, in the next installment of the Up All Night video series. Following the debauchery worldwide, the Up All Night video series documents the Dim Mak lifestyle on the road and across the globe as seen through the eyes of Dim Mak artists and crew as well as founder Steve Aoki.

In this Spring Break special edition of Up All Night, we are joined by bass heads Datsik and Borgore as well as Congorock, Autoerotique, Jerome LOL, Anna Lunoe and more. In the video, Datsik downs the beer and margaritas, Borgore sings a capella, and Autoerotique and Jerome LOL slay the decks.

At Dim Mak, we’ve got the girls, we’ve got the booze, we’ve got the pool parties, we’ve got the floaties. All we need is YOU!

Clockwork feat. Wynter Gordon – Surge [Thump Exclusive Video Premiere]

June 13, 2013 Tim Gauthier Music, Video Tags: , , , , ,

Dim Mak allstar Clockwork has just provided us a stellar video to go along with his uplifting and hard-hitting anthem “Surge,” which features some sweet vocals from Wynter Gordon. This track was one of the huge anthems of 2013 and if you made it out to any major festivals over the last six months you probably heard it dropped and perhaps even did a little fist-pumping to one of the track’s bleepy drops. The video echoes the high-energy nature of the track and features everything from friends running through the forest to electrified zombies dancing on some sort of post-apocalyptic beach. Points for creativity on this one… (via THUMP)

In this final installment of our 3 part series, the Dim Mak crew takes a day off (from our oh so hard lives) to enjoy a second day on the yacht where we got a visit from Xtreme Fly Board. They were nice enough to let us steal one of their jet-skis as well as let us try to fly around the bay. After a nice day, we ended our long week at Ultra Music Festival. We followed Steve to UMF for his second weekend performance at the festival…

Artist Spotlight: AutoErotique ‘Asphyxiation’

June 10, 2013 Tim Gauthier Music, Video Tags: , ,

AutoErotique‘s breathtaking new single “Asphyxiation” undoubtedly lives up to it’s name. This pulsating electro track will have you gasping for air but wanting more as you fight back the urge to get up and dance.

No strangers to the production game, the widely inspired Toronto based duo have been behind the scenes producing various genres of music for years before officially joining the dance music community and singing to Dim Mak Records in early 2009. Every track AutoErotique puts out showcases the perfect blend of electro, techno, house, Dutch house, Dutch-colonial house, rave, rock, rave-rock, indie-rock, and even ska inspired elements.

Gladiator, AutoErotique’s first single released on Dim Mak Records in September 2009, received immediate attention from the likes of Steve Aoki, DJ AM, Klever, Larry Tee/Alexander Technique, The Faint, AC Slater, and Milano whom have all remixed the epic track, making AutoErotique a heavyweight name in the EDM scene. AutoErotique has since showed off their ambiguous musical talents with their own remixes for Benny Benassi, Felix Luker, Tiesto, Etienne de Crecy, Joachim Garraud, Sarah McLeod, Lykki Li, Shinichi Osawa, Chris Cornell & Timbaland, Diplo & Laidback Luke, Larry Tee, B. Rich, Disco Bisquits, Fischerspooner and Weezer. A recent collaboration with fellow Dim Mak artist Felix Cartal has given birth to the stellar summer single “The Alarm”, which is scheduled to be released June 6th on Dim Mak Records.

The sexy ass-filled video for “Asphyxiation” will premiere on May 28th and the track will also be available for purchase on iTunes and Beatport.

June 4, 2013 Tim Gauthier Music Tags: , , ,

THIS JUST IN: Our boy Clinton VanSciver hit us with a sensational teaser for his upcoming EP “Indie Anna Jones” to be released on Dim Mak Records June 11 – just one week away! It’s obvious after listening to the track that VanSciver stays true to his trademark, self-dubbed “dirty pop” style for which he’s received wide acclaim from bloggers as well as prominent sites like Beatport. In describing the album, VanSciver states, “The Indie Anna Jones EP is an amalgamation of everything squeaky-clean and smart about retro pop music with a modern-day grit. It’s the music I’ve wanted to create since I was young.” We’ll cheer to that!

Dim Mak Invades Miami – Part 2

May 28, 2013 Tim Gauthier Video Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

The party never stops when the Dim Mak crew is on scene. If you thought day 1 in Miami was wild then days 2 and 3 of WMC 2013 were nothing less than savage.

Things got wet and, well, weird as we hosted our highly anticipated Dim Mak Records Pool Party on Day 2. The Raleigh Hotel pool was full of babes in bikinis and dudes ready to dance their faces off. With rousing performances by Steve Aoki, Dzeko & Torres, Dirtyphonics, Laidback Luke, Keys N Krates, Yolanda Be Cool, Borgore & Carnage, Clockwork, and Benny Benassi, just to name a few, the day turned into night and back to day before anyone even realized it happened.

The insanity continued on day 3 as we made our way to the OWSLA Party at Red Bull House where we undoubtedly had our share of fun.

Make sure you stay tuned for “Dim Mak Invades Miami – Part 3″ to catch us at Ultra Music Festival.

A Duet for Leaves & Turntable

May 23, 2013 Tim Gauthier Music, Video Tags: , , , , ,

Composer and sound artist Diego Stocco released a clip featuring his experiments with a new turntable and a few freshly gathered leaves. More specifically all bass, kick and snare sounds heard in the video were made by alternating the leaf type, angle, pressure as it was applied against the turntable. Amazing isn’t it? (via #vinyloftheday)

[hr]

Recently I bought a turntable to use it for an experiment, but that didn’t turn out as I was expecting.
Then, I noticed the equally spaced ridges on the plate and got an idea for something else.
For about an hour I recorded short musical phrases by rubbing leaves against the turntable (the type of leaf, angle, pressure and fold determined the sound), then I combined the different takes together. Every element comes from those recordings, including the bass, kick and snare sounds (shaped with EQ, compression and resonators).
If you’d like to see more of my musical projects based on trees and other natural ingredients here’s “Music from a Tree” bit.ly/9hRhB2 and “Music from Nature” bit.ly/ID6Vow Enjoy!

Artist Spotlight: Azari & III ‘Hungry for the Power’

May 20, 2013 Tim Gauthier Music, Video Tags: , ,

Groovy basslines, feel-good rhythms, and dark yet hooky vocals, three signature elements you can certainly count on house music masters Azari & III to integrate into every one of their hypnotic tracks. The Toronto based quartet takes us on a ride back in time and drops us off during the classic Chicago house era where chill synth textures and syncopated overtones ruled the scene. Azari & III fuse classic house revivalism with modern interpretation. Their featured track, “Hungry for the Power (Jamie Jones Ridge Remix)” released on Dim Mak Records, highlights their back to the future type sound.

Azari & III have the power to captivate you with their upbeat dance moves and expressive stage presence. The music video for “Hungry for the Power” is a compilation of live performance footage from the Sonar North American tour and the 2013 Dim Mak Records showcase in Austin, Texas. The soulful house collective command the stage as Dinamo Azari and Alixander III handle the live electronics while Starving Yet Full and Fritz Helder take charge of the vocals.

In October of 2012, the Canadian house music group released their self titled album Azari & III on Dim Mak Records, which features “Hungry for the Power”. Dim Mak founder, Steve Aoki boasts “[Azari & III] bring up sounds from the past, but it’s what I think the future sounds like. And Azari & III are beyond any trends, which makes this one of the best albums of our generation. They also recently released an EP with their latest single “Lost in Time”, also released on Dim Mak Records in April 2013.” Both are available for purchase on iTunes.

Azari & III will be touring the states in late May/early June with shows in Hollywood, San Francisco, New York, and Philadelphia.

Remembering Romanthony

May 20, 2013 Tim Gauthier News Tags:

20130519-romanthony-thumb-306x306-1368999202On May 7th, 2013, the world of house music and the fans who live in that house suffered a shocking loss. Romanthony, renowned for his vocal work on Daft Punk’s “One More Time”, passed away at the age of 46. Back in April, Dim Mak Records was proud to release a collaboration involving this pioneer of dance, Romanthony vs. Kevin McCay’s “The Wanderer EP”, which was met with much adoration from old and new fans alike.

Tommie Sunshine released a statement in regards to this massive loss of genius, stating that “we lost the most important voice of the second generation of House Music; without Romanthony, music will never be the same.”

We here at Dim Mak Records would like to extend our most heartfelt condolences to Romanthony’s family and friends in this time of mourning.

Evolve. Transcend. Prepare. The future is near, and from the looks of it in Steve Aoki and Angger Dimas’ video for “Singularity” ft My Name is Kay, it’s going to be a bumpy ride. In this voyeuristic video, Steve is at the merciless hands of mad scientist My Name is Kay and her henchman as they turn Steve into a lab rat cyborg with major rager issues, all while the brilliant Ray Kurzweil narrates what the future of mankind will look like. Part science fiction, part futurist theory, the video for the chilling track “Singularity” begs one question: are you prepared for the Neon Future?

Artist Spotlight: Scanners ‘Control’

May 6, 2013 Tim Gauthier Video Tags: , , , , , ,

Dark pop/alternative indie band, Scanners performed their featured track “Control” at the Dim Max x Buygore Austin 2013 Showcase where the band played live alongside some of Dim Mak and Buygore’s biggest artists. “Control” is the melodic and gritty guitar filled single off their new album ‘Love is Symmetry’. The music video for “Control” is a compilation of different live performances the band did in Austin and highlights their passionately energetic stage presence and their signature folky alternative sound.
The London based band is making their highly anticipated return back to the world of music after two years of silence with the release of their new album ‘Love is Symmetry’, their third full-length album on Dim Mak Records scheduled to be release in June 2013.

Scanners have been a part of Dim Mak’s roster of artists since 2006, after Dim Mak chief, Steve Aoki, came across their track, “Violence is Golden” on the internet and later made a trip to London and signed the band. Since then, Scanners have released their debut and sophomore albums, ‘Violence is Golden’ (2006) and ‘Submarine’ (2010) on Dim Mak as precursors to ‘Love is Symmetry’. But their success does not stop there. They have also been featured on a number of popular television shows including Gossip Girl, Shameless, One Tree Hill, Entourage, and a live performance on the ‘Carson Daly’ Show. Along with their television show features, Scanners have supported distinguished acts worldwide including Silversun Pickups, Devo, and Juliette and The Licks among many others.

In April, the band toured around Germany in celebration of ‘Love is Symmetry’ and will continue touring the States and Europe throughout 2013.

The Mexico EP, which features their single “Control”, is out now and available for purchase on iTunes.

This video has everything: doves, CO2 guns, footage of festival grounds packed with diehard fans dancing their asses off, gorgeous girls swingin’ their hair around, buff dudes fist pumping, and all the raver booty you could ever hope for…and it’s all set to the anthem of “SLOW DOWN”, which demands you throw your mother f*ckin’ hands up! In addition to all that, it shows just what kind of crazy good time you can expect from a SHOWTEK show.
