Today’s lesson:Be a bully,wind up homeless.Even if you’ve already seen sixth-grade metal band Unlocking The Truth rocking out in New York’s Times Square(See Below) or Apollo Theater, it’s worth watching this beautiful new video, in which they open up about their private lives…
Dim Mak’s newest signee, Clinton VanSciver, has made his first major debut in the dance music scene with his Indie Anna Jones EP, released on Dim Mak Records just two days ago. The recent USC graduate has hit the Beatport charts by storm with his “Summer Serotonin” playlist which features the gritty synth and vocally enthused new single ‘Indie Anna Jones’ along with other stylistically similar tracks that he describes as “[all] the songs I’ve been enjoying (or creating) instead of applying for a f*cking do-nothing job this summer”. Get your hands on this fresh anthem here on Beatport and be prepared to sing your heart out to this lyrically driven dance tune!
The Partysquad has teamed up with The Death Set and Diplo for another monumental Beatport Chart topping collaboration titled ‘P.O.V. 2.0’, released on Dim Mak Records. This time they come at you with a feel-good summer carnival sound reminiscent of circus tents, flashing lights, festival games, and that oh-so-sweet cotton candy. Be sure to get your copy of this Electro House Top 10 track here on Beatport just in time for EDC Vegas!
Dim Mak allstar Clockwork has just provided us a stellar video to go along with his uplifting and hard-hitting anthem “Surge,” which features some sweet vocals from Wynter Gordon. This track was one of the huge anthems of 2013 and if you made it out to any major festivals over the last six months you probably heard it dropped and perhaps even did a little fist-pumping to one of the track’s bleepy drops. The video echoes the high-energy nature of the track and features everything from friends running through the forest to electrified zombies dancing on some sort of post-apocalyptic beach. Points for creativity on this one… (via THUMP)
In this final installment of our 3 part series, the Dim Mak crew takes a day off (from our oh so hard lives) to enjoy a second day on the yacht where we got a visit from Xtreme Fly Board. They were nice enough to let us steal one of their jet-skis as well as let us try to fly around the bay. After a nice day, we ended our long week at Ultra Music Festival. We followed Steve to UMF for his second weekend performance at the festival…
AutoErotique‘s breathtaking new single “Asphyxiation” undoubtedly lives up to it’s name. This pulsating electro track will have you gasping for air but wanting more as you fight back the urge to get up and dance.
No strangers to the production game, the widely inspired Toronto based duo have been behind the scenes producing various genres of music for years before officially joining the dance music community and singing to Dim Mak Records in early 2009. Every track AutoErotique puts out showcases the perfect blend of electro, techno, house, Dutch house, Dutch-colonial house, rave, rock, rave-rock, indie-rock, and even ska inspired elements.
Gladiator, AutoErotique’s first single released on Dim Mak Records in September 2009, received immediate attention from the likes of Steve Aoki, DJ AM, Klever, Larry Tee/Alexander Technique, The Faint, AC Slater, and Milano whom have all remixed the epic track, making AutoErotique a heavyweight name in the EDM scene. AutoErotique has since showed off their ambiguous musical talents with their own remixes for Benny Benassi, Felix Luker, Tiesto, Etienne de Crecy, Joachim Garraud, Sarah McLeod, Lykki Li, Shinichi Osawa, Chris Cornell & Timbaland, Diplo & Laidback Luke, Larry Tee, B. Rich, Disco Bisquits, Fischerspooner and Weezer. A recent collaboration with fellow Dim Mak artist Felix Cartal has given birth to the stellar summer single “The Alarm”, which is scheduled to be released June 6th on Dim Mak Records.
THIS JUST IN: Our boy Clinton VanSciver hit us with a sensational teaser for his upcoming EP “Indie Anna Jones” to be released on Dim Mak Records June 11 – just one week away! It’s obvious after listening to the track that VanSciver stays true to his trademark, self-dubbed “dirty pop” style for which he’s received wide acclaim from bloggers as well as prominent sites like Beatport. In describing the album, VanSciver states, “The Indie Anna Jones EP is an amalgamation of everything squeaky-clean and smart about retro pop music with a modern-day grit. It’s the music I’ve wanted to create since I was young.” We’ll cheer to that!
Also, be sure to check out VanSciver’s recent mix for Dim Mak Studios on Evolution 101.7. Get stoked!

Everything they were and everything they are breathes in Asphyxiation. From the iconic rises of Bubonic, the rumbling bass of ‘Turn up the Volume’ and the confusing yet perfectly executed triplet mayhem of EKG – it’s all there in unison.
