April 4, 2013 Tim Gauthier Video Tags: , , , , , ,

There is no such thing as ordinary in the world of Steve Aoki, especially when it comes time to interview Dim Mak Artists. This fact rings especially true for the 22nd episode of AOKI FILES Miami Edition where Steve talks to Felix Cartal and AutoErotique and tries to get a word in edgewise.

The two Canadian producers, who recently collaborated on the completely insane track “The Alarm”, discuss what it would be like if they did a country-wide tour together (it involves a small hatchback) and who deserves the credit for making the phenomenal “The Alarm” (Felix is pretty sure he deserves all the credit). Felix and Keith both drop some fresh-out-the-oven information about new tracks coming up as, well as upcoming collaborations with other huge names in the game. One thing is for sure, when these two mega-producers get together with an extremely excited Aoki, the outcome is sure to make you do some ball grabbing of your own.

Dim Mak’s Dirtyphonics and Showtek top Beatport charts!

April 2, 2013 Tim Gauthier News Tags: , , , , ,

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!

6799994It 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.

dm397Those 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.
