Out Now: Yellow Claw & LNY TNZ – Last Night Ever (Single + Remixes)

September 2, 2014 Tim Gauthier Blog, New Music Tags: , , , , , ,

Amsterdam trio Yellow Claw and Dutch duo LNY TNZ have partnered to unleashed the perfect party-starting anthem in the form of “Last Night Ever.” The Dim Mak fixture encourages the “you only live once” mindset in this explosive electro track helmed by jagged drumrolls, thunderous hardstyle breakdowns and raspy vocals reminding listeners to act like tonight’s the last night ever.

After an eclectic musical career careening between trap, dubstep, electro, hip-hop and moombahton, Yellow Claw has combined their assorted production prowesses in their latest release “Last Night Ever.” The multi-faceted trio has touted their signature brassy sound across the globe, performing at festivals like Tomorrowland and Made In America and releasing music on influential imprints like Dim Mak, Mad Decent, Spinnin’ Records, Fool’s Gold and Ultra Records.

Launching into the spotlight with “Last Night Ever,” LNY TNZ make a bold entrance to the dance music sphere and show no signs of slowing down. The Dutch duo has already produced alongside Diplo and Yellow Claw for “Techno,” and released “Shotgun” under Spinnin’ Records sub-label SPRS.

Last Night Ever” was reupholstered by Canadian duo Thugli and Netherlands producer Isaac. Premiered on Thump, Thugli‘s remix slowed the rapid-fire track down to a more relaxed tempo centering around anticipatory vocal drops and crawling drumrolls. Netherlands producer Isaac also reworked the tune, taking a more melodic approach with atmospheric synth work and hardstyle-infused bridges.

NEW EP & MASSIVE TOUR COMING FROM KEYS N KRATES!

August 8, 2014 Tim Gauthier Blog, Music, News Tags: , , , , , ,

After several months of patient waiting, fans of the three-piece live electronic sensation known as Keys N Krates are about to be rewarded by Every Nite, the fresh new EP from the Canadian musical masterminds. Still flying high off the success of their undeniably catchy hit “Dum Dee Dum,” Keys N Krates are ready to launch into the next phase of their journey with this 6 track offering, which aptly demonstrates their evolution as a band, as well as their loyalty to the unique fusion of hip-hop and electronic music that they’re known for. Set for release on September 23 on Dim Mak Records, Every Nite displays the seamless blend and complementary juxtaposition between the drums, keys, turntables, and live sampling that so clearly distinguishes Keys N Krates.

Ahead of the EP, Keys N Krates are presenting the first single “Are We Faded,” which is set for release August 26. About “Are We Faded,” Billboard says, “The new single, ‘Are We Faded,’ is dizzyingly sexy, pushing along at a slower tempo that’s ideal for sweaty, middle-of-the-dance-pit grooving. It’s carried by choppy female vocals that bounce around in tandem with the synths, vanishing every once in a while to let a low voice chime ‘f-f-faded.’

[button color=default-button3 url=”http://geni.us/3It9″ size=”big-button” target=”_self”]PRE-ORDER “ARE WE FADED” ON ITUNES[/button]

Keys N Krates have celebrated recent success with “Dum Dee Dum” (off their SOLOW EP) nearing the 100k downloads sold mark (99,659 as of July 30), and with the accompanying video amassing more than 2.2 million views on YouTube. Other recent achievements include the Tove Lo flip of “Habits” into “All The Time,” which has collected over 5 million Soundcloud plays, as well as the entirety of their acclaimed SOLOW EP, including “Treat Me Right,” which shot to #1 on Hype Machine, received instantaneous support from figureheads such as Diplo and Flosstradamus and was debuted by Annie Mac in the UK. They have also been featured on some of the biggest and best festival stages around the world including HARD in Los Angeles, Voodoo Festival in New Orleans, and Lollapalooza in Chicago, with USA Today singling them out as emerging artists to catch.

In celebration of the Every Nite EP, Keys N Krates are embarking on a massive fall tour, co-headlining with Gladiator and with support from Thugli, that will take them across the expanse of North America. Aside from their noteworthy talent as producers and studio musicians, Keys N Krates truly set themselves apart by their performances, where they bring their live electronic instrumentation to the stage together as a band. With stops in Los Angeles, Denver, Boston, Philadelphia, Phoenix, and countless more, Keys N Krates are canvassing the continent making sure no fan gets left behind.

Loudpvck & Gladiator‘s new track “Tony” is set for release on Ultra Music August 12, following Gladiator‘s collaboration with A-Trak, a remix of Foster the People’s “Best Friend.” Also Joining Keys N Krates on the tour are fellow Torontonians, Thugli. Loved by Diplo, A-Trak, Flosstradamus and Bauuer for their distinctive sound, described as a hybrid of dirty south rap combined with a love of melodic builds and heavy synth, Thugli will be releasing their debut EP this fall, and their remix of Diplo & GTA‘s track “Boy Oh Boy” features on Diplo‘s new album.

Aoki spits the truth!

August 8, 2014 Tim Gauthier Lifestyle, News Tags: , , ,

When I perform, I don’t think about the haters, the Internet trolls, or anyone else. I care about giving the person in front of me something they won’t forget. And that’s why I bring the cake and raft out.

Where do I begin?

I haven’t had a chance to really to speak about all the controversy around my on-stage entertaining: DJing vs. The Cake (which includes the cake, the raft, the champagne, the stage dives…the entertainment part of the show). The haters and the trolls have always used me as an excuse to make fun of something that is out of the ordinary, something that doesn’t necessarily make sense to them. For whatever reason, I have always been a target that people love to attack. From not being American enough as a kid growing up in an all-white neighborhood, to not being indie enough for the die-hard hipsters in my 20s and now today, not being a “real DJ” for the electronic music purists…

#FreeFriday Episode No. 097: Kenna – Relations (Kevin Focus Remix)

August 1, 2014 Tim Gauthier #FreeFriday Tags: , ,
“I’ve had some really awesome opportunities making music, but remixing Kenna, it personally was one for the books. I’ve been a uber huge fan of Kenna since his first album & to get the nod to be able to remix his Dim Mak debut, I was more than stoked! It was difficult choosing what to use from the original because I wanted to use it all. The end result was reusing some of the track percussion and I snatched a part of Kenna’s vocal that had resonated the most to me. I did my best to remold the track in a new light with heavy energy and into the guise of a Dim Mak banger… ‘Lets have Relations!'”Kevin Focus

Shaun Frank Joins the Dim Mak Crew

July 23, 2014 Tim Gauthier Interviews

uberjakd logo colorWe could not be more excited to welcome Shaun Frank to the Dim Mak team! The Toronto-based producer first caught our ears with his fine-tuned vocals on tracks like “We Are”, then later captured our hearts with his studio skills and solid mixing chops. Having already remixed and covered a bevy of artists including Coldplay, Avicii, Lorde, John Newman and The Neighbourhood, Shaun’s plunging into the world of original productions and we’re stoked to have one of his first with “Vagabond.” 

Shaun Frank’s collaboration with Vanrip “Vagabond” will be out on Dim Mak Records on August 5.

[highlight style=”default”][highlighttext title=”To learn more about Shaun Frank, see our exclusive interview!” titlesize=”h6″ subtitle=””][/highlighttext][/highlight]
1. WELCOME TO DIM MAK, SHAUN! WE’VE BEEN FOLLOWING YOUR RELEASES FOR THE PAST FEW YEARS AND ARE THRILLED TO HAVE YOU. WHAT PART OF JOINING THE DIM MAK TEAM ARE YOU MOST EXCITED ABOUT?

Thanks for having me! Dim Mak has such a great roster of artists, including a lot of great Canadian artists like Felix Cartal, Botnek, Autoerotique and Keys N Krates. This label has broken so many new artists, and I’m really looking forward to working with the team on my upcoming singles to really get my music heard on the world stage. We have some really exciting and creative ideas, and so far the label has really been on the same page as me with everything I want to do musically. I can’t see a better fitting label to be working with for where I’m currently at in my career. 

2. YOU’RE MAKING YOUR DIM MAK DEBUT WITH “VAGABOND,” YOUR COLLABORATION WITH VANRIP. TELL ME A LITTLE ABOUT HOW THE TRACK CAME TOGETHER AND WHY YOU CHOSE TO WORK WITH VANRIP ON YOUR FIRST EVER ORIGINAL COLLABORATION.

This track came in as a demo to my manager. The Vanrip guys had a drop written that I really thought would kill on the dance floor, so I took the ideas and worked out the track around that drop. I wanted to get really cinematic with the breakdown, so I did a lot of epic sounding tribal drum stuff and wrote chords that I thought would compliment the track. I’m pretty pumped about this one – I’ve been playing it out live and it’s been crushing. It was really a pleasure to debut this track with Steve Aoki at the Dim Mak Beach Party at WMC this year.

3. YOUR CAREER BEGAN AS A LEAD SINGER OF TORONTO ROCK BAND THE ENVY. HOW HAS THAT EXPERIENCE PLAYED INTO YOUR PERFORMANCE TECHNIQUES WHEN DJING?

I think being the lead singer in a band for so many years and being on stage constantly has just really helped my overall confidence when DJing. I mean, there’s the technical side of the whole thing, but I think the most important thing is giving the crowd a super hyped up and emotional experience. It’s what I always strived to do in my band, and now with DJing it’s even more fun to push the limits. 

4. I KNOW YOU BROKE INTO DANCE MUSIC BY PROVIDING VOCALS FOR ELECTRONIC TRACKS LIKE “WE ARE” ON ARMADA MUSIC, BUT AT WHAT MOMENT DID YOU REALIZE YOU WANTED TO TAKE YOUR CAREER IN A MORE PRODUCER/DJ DIRECTION?

The truth is I have always been producing music, and have always spent most of my time in the studio. Before I was even singing on dance tracks, I was doing a lot of writing and producing for other artists. I’ve spent a lot of time in Los Angeles, New York and Nashville just writing songs and building up my catalogue. Armada reached out to me because they heard my work on an Arty demo, and I sang the “We Are” track, which was kind of my entry into doing this thing as my own project. That was a pretty exciting time because the concept of being a solo artist was never really something I had considered, but then I looked at the catalogue of songs I had, and combined with my love for electronic music, I kind of just dove in.

5. AS BOTH A VOCALIST AND PRODUCER, YOU’RE KNOWN FOR SPICING UP YOUR LIVE SETS BY SINGING AND SPINNING SIMULTANEOUSLY. DO YOU HAVE ANY PLANS FOR PROVIDING VOCALS ON YOUR OWN ORIGINAL WORKS, SIMILAR TO CALVIN HARRIS’ RECENT RELEASE “SUMMER?”

Absolutely! There are already some unreleased tracks with my voice on them. I’m also doing a series of club covers where I take a song that you normally wouldn’t hear in the club and redo it with my own vocals. We released the first one for The Neighbourhood called “Sweater Weather” six months ago, and we got a lot of great support from it. The latest was for Coldplay’s “Magic,” and we are working on a new one that’s almost done as we speak. They’re all for free download on my Soundcloud.

6. COMING FROM YOUR LIVE PERFORMANCE BACKGROUND, DO YOU PREFER DJING OVER PRODUCING? OR DO YOU TRY TO FIND A HAPPY MEDIUM BETWEEN BOTH?

I get a little restless if I’m stuck in the studio for too long. My favorite place to be is on stage, it’s truly where I feel at home. Having said that, I think being in the studio is a good way for me to stay grounded, and stay in some kind of a reality. The road is a very surreal place and you lose yourself a bit out there, so sometimes it’s really nice to just get back home and make music again. I kind of feel like the shows are the rewards for all the hard work I put into the studio.

7. YOU’VE ALREADY REMIXED TRACKS FROM VARIOUS INDUSTRY HEAVY-HITTERS INCLUDING AVICII, LORDE AND MARTIN GARRIX. IS THERE ANYONE ON THE DIM MAK TEAM YOU’RE EYEING TO REWORK?

I love the vocals on a lot of the Keys N Krates stuff, I think it would be super fun to mess around with that stuff in my style. I’ve also always been a huge fan of what Botnek does – I think they’ve been one of the most underrated producer teams to date and I’m super happy they’re blowing up right now. I’d love to mess around with their sounds as well.

8. BETWEEN YOUR REMIXES, ORIGINAL WORKS AND VOCALS, YOU’VE DABBLED ACROSS GENRES AND STYLES. DO YOU SEE YOURSELF HEADING IN A MORE SPECIFIC DIRECTION WITH YOUR UPCOMING RELEASES OR CONTINUING TO KEEP YOUR OUTPUTS DIVERSIFIED?

I don’t really think about it too much. I really love so many genres of music, and when I go into the studio or grab my laptop to create something I just go with what comes out. I think I would get really bored if I made too much of the same thing – being free to do whatever I want is what really keeps me inspired. Lately I’ve been writing my tracks on this old broken grand piano I have at my place. I find that if I write the whole song before I even touch the computer, I can really get to the essence of the music without getting bogged down in the technical stuff.

8. WHAT’S NEXT FOR SHAUN FRANK?

Well… “Vagabond” is the beginning of me releasing my own tracks as Shaun Frank, so it’s pretty exciting. I’ve done remixes and club covers so far, but now I finally get to start releasing my own solo work. I’ve got a bunch of tracks that I’m really excited about, and some really great collaborations coming up that I can’t really talk about but they’re going to be really sick. It’s going to be a super fun 2015 – I’ve never felt so on top of my game as I do right now.

#FreeFriday Episode No. 096: Clockwork – Champion (Michael Wayne Remix)

July 18, 2014 Tim Gauthier #FreeFriday Tags: , , , , , ,

It’s Friday and here’s a new remix for you to love!

“As I was remixing Clockwork’s Champion track, I wanted to go outside the norm of a tradition dance track by incorporating some non-conventional sounds, that’s why I turned to a Kontact orchestra library to add some organic instruments to the track. Clockwork mentioned he wanted people to get as original as possible while calling on all genres and all producers. I also kept in mind Dim Mak’s taste in dance music at the same time. Bridging those two gaps is what created my remix. While the original track had no vocals, I had to use the lead synth as my remixing source; I chopped up this lead into a new riff that added excitement to the remix while keeping the core idea of the track at hand. I also added violins, cinematic drum smashes, trap snares, Melbourne bounce bassline with an overall big room house feel to the track to keep things original, fun and fresh!”

Moby and Darth & Vader – Death Star

July 1, 2014 Tim Gauthier New Music Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

With a name like “Death Star,” you already know this track is going to be a dramatic force of energy, and it does not disappoint. The pairing of Moby and Darth & Vader create a dark and driving tune, which you can just as easily imagine soundtracking The Empire Strikes Back as you can a dark nightclub.

[Beatport News] Botnek’s ‘#SELFIE’ slam soars to #1

June 23, 2014 Tim Gauthier Music Tags: , , , , ,

Congratulations go out to Botnek, as his remix of The Chainsmokers#SELFIE” takes over the #1 position in our Beatport Top 100.

Less of a remix and more of a rip on the trending track that even made it’s way to American Idol, Botnek’s remix is playful in its reproach. Bless the New York-based Chainsmokers (aka Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall) for having the sense of humor to approve this track, as it’s climbed the top 100 to take over #1 in just over a week.
