HAEZER SHANGO TOUR DATES
If there is anyone in the electro world right now that knows something about making stellar mix tapes and playlists, that person is undoubtedly Billy the Kit. The former host of several radio shows, heading up MTV’s Totally Summer on Tour, and playing nonstop at clubs for years, Billy has the experience to know what it takes to make a slamming Beatport Chart. Featuring other Dim Mak Records releases, such as Steve Aoki and Showtek, as well as a few of his original sounds, Billy The Kit’s chart is jam packed with speaker destroying tracks. Head on over to Beatport and get this epic collection of songs before your ears perish from boredom!
Felix Cartal has gone global in a whole new way! The Deichmann Group, a shoe company based out of Germany, has used Felix Cartal’s “Tonight” feat Maja Ivarsson in their spring collection campaign. The campaign video, which you can watch below, shows fashion-forward men and women having crazy good times to the stunningly catchy “Tonight”. This track has crossed over from club favorite to international commercial status; now let’s just hope those shoes can handle the good vibrations of festival season! Glückwünsche, Felix!
I think we need to have a moment of silence, out of respect for the Beatport charts that are getting slayed by Dim Mak artists!
It was only five short days ago when we last heard about SHOWTEK storming the Beatport charts, and now they’re taking it to a whole new level as “Slow Down” sits at the #1 spot on the Electro House Top 100! It’s almost like they knew it would be ironic to name such an impossibly good track “Slow Down” when they have no intentions of doing so.
And that’s not all, folks. Nope. Do not adjust your computer screen even though what you’re about to read may seem highly badass… I assure you that this is real life.
Those filthy DIRTYPHONICS guys have earned the coveted #1 spot on Electro House Top 100 Releases with the gnarly sounds from “IRREVERENCE”. With ten unprecedented and unique tracks, “IRREVERENCE” is a mighty force to reckon with and has taken its rightful spot at the very tippy-top of this chart. Oh, and guess who else is sitting high and mighty on the Electro House Top 100 Releases? It’s SHOWTEK at #5 with their “Crunk/Slow Down” EP!
I’ll tell you what; it does the heart and the ears good to see these hard working and uber talented artists from Dim Mak Records kick so much butt. Keep up the good work Showtek and Dirtyphonics, we’ll keep dancing, and the charts will continue to bow down.
Staying true to their titles of electric innovators, INFECTED MUSHROOM have once again graced us with a dance floor breaking tune. Just released on Dim Mak Records, “Never Mind” has all the wobbly pitches and unexpected (yet brilliant) build ups into high energy drops, guaranteed…
This is the record that will blow up every dancefloor worldwide. This is the record that will rock every mainstage on every festival this year. This is the record that combines electro house mayhem with one of the biggest drops to hit yet! “This Record”,…
Following a veritable slew of chart-topping dubstep releases, blossoming producer MUST DIE! presents with Water Temple an EP that is anthemic, nostalgic, and already beloved by industry insiders. Foremost, the title track pulls at our heartstrings as solidly as it drops…
Now that March has come to an end and April is in full effect it’s time to start counting down the days until the April 16th release of GTRONIC’s EP, ‘Morpheus & Dufus.’ With only 15 days until the release, GTRONIC has uploaded a full preview on SoundCloud. You can take a listen now as well as grab GTRONIC’s previous release, Sergeant Bass.
After months of speculation, Lollapalooza put all rumors to rest this morning with the release of the 2013 line up. Among the long list of talented artists performing this year, Dim Mak is pleased to be making its way to Grant Park with performances by Steve Aoki, Keys N Krates, and Alvin Risk. If you’re not up to date on their recent releases on Dim Mak I highly suggest you check out Steve Aoki’s “Ooh” featuring Rob Roy, “Treat Me Right” from Keys N Krates, and “Infinity” from Alvin Risk.
3- day passes for the festival are currently sold out, however day passes will go on sale April 3 for $95. You can grab more information on Lollapalooza.com.
The beginning of Irreverence dabbles in intricate melodic piano ambiance that one may expect from a historic four-piece of classically trained French gentlemen – so it’s mildly shocking to know that Dirtyphonics first honed their production skills with metal riffs. After teasing bass fanatics with more than a half-decade spent tempo-shifting club bangers from the Bloody Beetroots (“Warp”) to Benny Benassi (“Electroman”) and Krewella (“Killin’ it”), the collective builds the initial drop of their debut LP across nearly five minutes and two tracks — the classical arrangement of ”Prelude (White)”, and the epic march of “Prelude (Black)” — before finally rewarding fans with a devastating rolling bass release.
Similar to Korn’s The Path of Totality, Irreverence fuses the brutality associated with late-’90s nu-metal and current bass-music. Unlike their predecessors, “Los Angeles”, which features fellow European electro-metal outfit Modestep, and “Walk in the Fire” are an earnest bridge between the sound of their youths toward today’s obsession with bass wobbles and not a feeble attempt to maintain relevancy…
