We’re proud to present a new section on the Dim Mak blog called “Holland Days with Jamal”. In these weekly series our newest intern Jamal will interview various artists and at the same time learn a lot about the American culture and the Dim Mak family.

Jamal’s first interview is with Trap artist SALVA, who will be playing at the Steve Aoki x Grammy After Party. SALVA is mostly known for his legendary remix with RL Grime of Kanye West’s “Mercy”. To buy tickets for the Grammy After Party, click here.

Interview

Hi Salva, how are you doing on this fine and sunny day?
Chillin out :)

Whats the meaning behind the Pope as your profile photo? Do you just love him that much?
Yeah I wanted to be the pope when I was a little kid… Haha for real though.

How did the process of the Mercy remix you did with RL Grime go?
I had the idea when I was in the studio at Power 106 when Big Sean premiered the original “Mercy”.. I was sitting there remembering that Madlib and Dilla used that reggae sample before. Brought RL in to do the track with me because we started working together recently, I remixed one of his tracks for Wedidit and I was always playing his stuff out… so we collabed on it and didn’t think too much about it.. Just had fun with it and it came out really good.

Did you think the remix would take off like it did? How much did it impact your life/career?
Yeah it’s helped get me a lot of exposure for sure..thankful for that.. just really helped me get in front of bigger crowds — been DJing all my life so it was a good platform to show kids what I do.

Are you still running around coloring the streets? If so where can we see some of your work?
No haha I don’t paint.

J Dilla’s birthday was today (February 7th). How important is he as a person to you?
Really big influence on all of us who were into golden era Hip Hop to modern underground stuff…his productions, his rap. He produced so many classics, if you were into Hip Hop at all the past 20 years — whether you know it or not you love Dilla’s music.

Don’t you just hate that remake of “Fright Night”?
Ha yeah it really wasn’t the best.. The OG is my fave though, of course.

Are we going to see you scratching during the Dim Mak Sundays night this Sunday February 10th?
A little bit maybe, I’ve been kinda forced into using CD-Js as of late, turntables are dissapearing accross the world!!! :(

Would you say that Bucharest, Romania is the best place to party? And why?
Kids just go really hard there, and the average party goer probably knows more about new electronic music than I do…they’re just really hungry for what’s next there for some reason.

How awesome was it when Pusha T came and did his verse over your remix during RBMA Culture Clash?
Yeah that was probably one of the best things that came out of doing the “Mercy” remix for sure.. He’s the illest man what can I say!! Pusha just shines on everybody.

What are the future releases on the Frite Nite label you’d like to tell us about?
We have really cool things popping, more underground style — for instance Jimmy Edgar and Adbourke remixes of The Starship Connection record we did last year, and an EP from Ana Sia that is really cracking tribal bass stuff.

Are you excited for your show this Sunday? Any surprises up your sleeve?
Probably no Pusha T this time hahaha (but maybe again soon).. nah I’m just gonna do me, I’ve wanted to come play Drai’s for a minute.. feel it’s gonna be a good platform to play some big rap songs and some banging dance tracks too. Very excited… and it’s GRAMMY’S NIGHT!!

After the first release the Russian artist is set to take you to his next journey of dark synths and vibes. The release will be followed by a European Tour.

PART II forces an unconditional surrender with a mix of acid (“Audio 15″), ambient (“Nanomed”), Eastern-flavored pop (“Coke”) and hip-hop inflected head-nodders (“9000″). The second part has been crowned by Mixmag as “Electro album of the month. 5/5”.
They say “It follows on from the first part, which was released in November of last year, and is a sterling showcase of the Russian producer’s slamming take on electro. You have been warned. This one’s a ripper. And to celebrate its release, Mixmag has the exclusive first play.”

We present an exclusive premiere of “Jack Hammer” which is the hard hitting new single from a collaboration between well known London producer Riton, who started DJ’ing in Newcastle at the tender age of 14, and London born but now based in Germany house artist TAI.
This track is based around a pounding beat and what does sound alot like a sampled jackhammer combined with furious, wailing synth stabs and then with the occasional bleepy horns weaved in around the breaks.

TAI is part of the Dim Mak family and has released multiple EP’s on our record label. We’ve also released Riton’s “Ritontime” EP back in 2011. On February 12th TAI will be releasing another EP on Dim Mak called “Tailand”. This EP is a 2-track EP, along with a remix by Peking Duk. You can now pre-order the “Tailand” EP on iTunes.

The grand and driving production provided by Keys N Krates provides a perfect backdrop for Brennan’s inspirational rhymes.

‘#Arrow’ scoop: @SteveAoki to play Oliver’s party — EXCLUSIVE

February 5, 2013 Tim Gauthier News Tags: , , , , , ,

steve-aoki_510x335Oliver Queen is set to open his Starling City night club and he’s getting one of the best house musicians in the world for opening night.
Grammy nominee Steve Aoki is set to guest star on Arrow, playing himself.

In the hour — titled “The Huntress Returns” (yay), Oliver (series star Stephen Amell) has a new romance brewing, is launching his nightclub and is more content than he’s ever been since coming back from the island. But when his ex, The Huntress (Jessica De Gouw) returns to town, she “threatens to destroy everything and everyone Ollie cares about.”

During the episode the Wonderland artist and DJ will make his scripted series debut performing at the grand opening of Ollie’s club (an evening that we suspect won’t go off without a hitch).

Bloody Beetroots Launch Social Media Platform, Church of Noise

February 4, 2013 Tim Gauthier News Tags: , , , ,

IKB_3zEuBVX5MBr4EBHYxATp-JxgRUI-zjs0BtyQ338

Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo aka The Bloody Beetroots is unashamedly one of the most forward thinking musicians in the electronic music industry and his next announcement shows he has no sign of stopping. Using the team and technology behind Lady Gaga’s Little Monsters, Rifo has worked closely with US agency, Backplane, to launch the first full interactive social media platform exclusively for an electronic artist. The platform is effectively a “cultural-musical movement” which allows for artists, musicians and fans alike to join an exclusive network and share their music and art, and collaborate with others within the community.

Integrating YouTube, Soundcloud, and photos, Church of Noise is an online safe-haven enriched by the ability to upload, comment and share your own creations and have them exist as part of a congregation of similar minds. Its aim is to cultivate freedom of speech and provide a platform to be shared within a congregation and ultimately get you one step closer to Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo. Status will be awarded to more regular users starting their journey as a Rebel, a more frequent user will quickly be upgraded to an Advocate and once truly part of the revolution will become a Champion. The launch of the new platform takes place during the world premiere of the new Bloody Beetroots LIVE show in Australia, and will see the platform host an array of unseen and exclusive content relating to the new live show.

The Church Of Noise community started out in 2011 as a result of the same-titled track, originally a collaboration with Dennis Lyxzén of Swedish hardcore punk-pioneers Refused and The (International) Noise Conspiracy. The song holds a siren-call of strings, bass and lyrical manifesto: “…It only takes a sound to change the beaten path/It only takes love and courage to take it all back”… View the video HERE:

You can sign up to the platform: http://www.therealchurchofnoise.com to become part of the revolution.

On the Road w/ Steve Aoki #48 NFL Pro Bowl / Block Party

February 4, 2013 Tim Gauthier Video Tags: , , , , , , ,

So we all know that Football is probably the best thing around right now and probably won’t be over anytime soon… But before everyone was sitting in the dark, we were in beautiful Hawaii for the NFL Pro Bowl. Steve took over the streets in Waikiki the night before with a street filled performance for the NFL block party. Kids filled the streets… traffic light climbers and all. Oh yeah… remember your first friend from Myspace? He was there too. But now that JT has a hold of it, Tom spends his time traveling the world and photographing some pretty epic shit. lol about his Instagram handle: “MYSPACETOM” but hey…If it weren’t for you Tom, we’d never get the opportunity to learn HTML, Thanks. Anyways, We were invited to the Pro Bowl Game at Aloha Stadium where Steve gave Football and the Stadium a little taste of icing (since we were told to withhold from throwing any cakes) which turned out to be a…hole in one.

Boiler Room, Los Angeles 015

January 31, 2013 Tim Gauthier Music Tags: , , , ,
22090_10101617722343352_3071630_n
Tuesday night I had the chance to visit the infamous Boiler Room in Los Angeles hosted at Innovative Leisure headquarters. The night included a solid lineup featuring sets from  Gossamer, D-Tiberio, Low Limit, Classixx, Nosaj Thing, and a live performance from Rhye. Each artist brought a different touch to the table creating a flow of energy that continued throughout the night.  Some of my personal highlights included Low Limit dropping Foe Tha Love of $ by Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Classixx unveiling new tracks, and finally witnessing Nosaj Thing live. After streaming Boiler Room sets from my computer for sometime is was interesting to finally be on the other side and see how the night played out from beginning to end.

If this is your first time hearing about the Boiler Room then I highly suggest you get familiar with the program. The Boiler Room began in 2010 in London and has since then expanded to cities across the world hosting underground events in secret locations with live streams hosted on their website. Some of the artists that have made their way behind the lens for sessions include Toro Y Moi, Flying Lotus, RL Grime, Diplo, Alexander Split, and others. You can catch up on past sessions and stay up to date with upcoming streams on their website. Enjoy!

After causing a bit of hysteria with a NSFW Go-Pro video full of lady topers, BXXX (pronounced Bronx) “Lies” reappears but this time with a remix by NYC based producer/DJ Dances With White Girls. BXXX first single “Lies” is a re-imagining of the Arcade Fire “Rebellion (Lies)” as a bonafide nightlife anthem.

Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Coone “Madness ft. Lil Jon” is true to the purity of it’s title; completely frenzied and insane. The track is a luxe combination of hardstyle bass, porgressive synths, house and crunk, appropriated slung in by Lil Jon. I know, I know it has been a long way coming since it graced us at EDC and Tommorrowland, but smile because now you can get “to the top”, all you want, when you want with Lil Jon.
