DJ Fashen has been one of the top club DJs in the US for at least the last ten years, but this is his first release of original music. He’s an absolute genius on the turntables, an incredible performer, and his energy and knowledge translates perfectly in this three song EP.The Phoenix native (he came up with Z-Trip) had already been ripping for years on commercial radio and in nightclubs all over the US before being hand picked by DJ AM for Deckstar, which propelled him into the upper echelon alongside AM, Jazzy Jeff and Steve Aoki. This landed him gigs playing for Kanye West, Snoop Dogg, 50-Cent, and the Kardashians, and as a Skam Artist DJ he continues to tour the world, somehow also finding time to hold down Dim Mak Sundays at Drai’s Hollywood with Thee Mike B.
The YouTube Viral King has created another web-isode, with a new feature towards Skeet Skeets’s forthcoming single “Stand Again”. Watch as the duo lip-sync throughout the entire 5:13 track, in a ‘sway’ of bromance.
“Stand Again” represents Dim Mak’s emergence of our next artist and hit single. Stay tuned, as more will be announced in the coming weeks!

RollingStone caught up with Datsik backstage at Coachella to see how it feels to headline Coachella, play 2 major shows in 2 weeks, and to be at the pinnacle of the dubstep & EDM lime light:
“I’m on this big scissor lift and throughout my set, I raise up over 10 feet,” enthused dubstep DJ Datsik backstage about his Coachella set, which headlined the festival’s electro-driven Sahara Tent on Friday night. “I have these crazy-looking robotic cryomen decked from head to toe in blue L.E.D. and eight feet tall. They’ve got blue and green and red lazers and they spray the whole crowd with cryo, super-cold mist stuff.”
If you ever need a heightened sense of our dystopian present, attend an Atari Teenage Riot show. Certainly the long-running German trio — now consisting of Alec Empire, Nic Endo and Rowdy Superstar — has had progress in its sights for a long time. The group began in Berlin in 1992 as a proactive response against neo-Nazism in Germany and has been fighting the good fight through techno-juiced hardcore (and strobe lights!) off and on for two decades. (The band took a decade-long hiatus in 2001 after the death of founding member Carl Crack before returning last year.) But no length of fandom or YouTube-by-proxies is quite like being in Atari Teenage Riot‘s present presence: through hyperreal energy and palpable political resolve, the group acts as cheerleaders for resistance, and the constant indictments of skewed global politics are actually transformative. We’re living in a time of tumult, but ATR’s imagining a better future, if we want it. The crux of their music, battering, insistent, and of the rabble, is just a reminder that along the path there, chaos is tantamount. And fun.
Vitamin D has serviced Datsik’s first full-length release with his newest label-home; Dim Mak Records. After coming off his co-headlined tour across the US and Canada, Steve and Datsik finally got a chance to sit down with MTV to reflect on the chaos that has become the last 3 months of their lives:
When MTV News caught up with Aoki recently, he revealed that he and Datsik bonded at the Identity Festival last summer.
