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!

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.

French electronic dance music quartet Dirtyphonics brings the noise with “No Stopping Us,” featured on their debut album Irreverence, out now on Dim Mak Records. The track is a hard-hitting banger featuring critically acclaimed U.K. rap/grime/dubstep group Foreign Beggars.
In an industry permeated by genres on top of genres, finding a producer who can seamlessly fit multiple styles into one track is incredibly refreshing. Such is the case with FUNKAGENDA and his release of “Samsara”, a two-track, heavy-hitting single made of unadulterated dance madness…
The “Asphyxiation” remix package features four hot remixes done by Skitzofrenix, LOUDPVCK, Botnek, and Uberjak’d. As if the original wasn’t sexual enough, this diverse compilation of remixes is sure to give you a series of eargasms like none you’ve ever had before!
Canada’s dubstep sensation, Datsik, presents “Light The Fuse”, another bass-fueled track that promises to wobble, kick, and wobble some more. After putting out a number of remixes for some of the biggest names in the scene and countless collaborations with some of the hottest…
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.
Travis Barker and Yelawolf Get an EDM Overhaul in ‘Push Em’ (Steve Aoki and Travis Barker Remix) – Song Premiere
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.”
