July 17, 2013 Tim Gauthier Music, Video Tags: , , ,

You won’t want to miss this exclusive interview with rapidly evolving DJ god Autoerotique as he gives Aoki the 4-1-1 on his hot new single “Apshyxiation.” Not only has the track blown up the Beatport charts in recent days, but it’s also launched viral web buzz with the incredibly erotic (no pun intended) music video featuring a bunch of scantily clad sex vixens playing an intense game of dodgeball. In other news, Autoerotique dishes on the recent remix EP for his Beatport-charting collaboration single with Felix Cartal, “The Alarm.” Be sure to head over to Autoerotique’s artist profile on the Dim Mak website to check out all of his latest releases and follow him on Twitter (@autoerotique) as he keeps making moves.

Happy Tuesday everyone, I hope you made your weekends vast and epic as you should. I just wanted to touch base with everyone, catch up, and recap some time I spent last weekend with Infected Mushroom. The Israel-bred, LA based duo is made up of Amit “Duvdev” Duvdevani, and Erez Eisen. They started collaborating in 1997 in Kiryat Yam, Haifa District, Israel.

In addition to twice being voted into the top 10 for DJ Magazine’s Top 100 DJ’s, they have also left footprints in both dance and rock genres, having worked with Perry Farrell from Jane’s Addiction and Jonathan Davis from Korn.

The two have released such hit albums as 2009’s Legend of the Black Shwarma, which peaked at #9 on Billboard’s Top Electronic Albums chart, scored such dance hits as “Killing Time” and “Smashing the Opponent,” and to top it all off, they average about 120 live performances a year. Boom goes the dynamite. Also, out today on Dim Mak Records, “Friends on Mushrooms, Vol. 2.”

Now these live performances brought about a revolutionary live show, which I’m sure you’ll know what I’m talking about if you’ve ever been to one of their gigs. The set is a 3D landscape designed by Vita Motus Design Studio and V Squared Labs; it is truly one of a kind, and they brought it to the Avalon this past Saturday, July 7th to have a little playtime with the L.A. fans. I had the good fortune to steal a quick conversation with them before they hit the stage. (via MAGNETIC MAG)

Music Video: Botnek – “Through The Night” [THUMP Exclusive]

July 15, 2013 Tim Gauthier Video Tags: , , , , , ,

Steve Aoki star students Botnek are back with a new video for “Through The Night,” their first single since last year’s spicily-titled Sriracha & Beer EP. Think of the two dudes, Erick Muise and Gordon Huntley, as Montreal’s version of Crookers (you know, while there were still two of them)—two party maestros who love emotional piano breakdowns, double fisting beers, and helping you have a TOTALLY EPIC time.

Fittingly, the video chronicles one long night out with the boys as they tumble from their studio to the center stage of a club filled with unicorn heads and hot chicks, before ending up at a groupie-packed after-party with even more hot chicks. Two themes persist throughout their perilous odyssey: getting wasted and awkward dancing. (via THUMP)
