2012 hit a sad note for Crookers fans when the duo announced that Bot would be going his separate way while Phra carried the Crookers name as a solo venture, and we’ve been waiting ever since to hear something from Bot‘s solo studio sessions. And it looks like the wait is finally over; on April 9th, devoted fans will finally get a sampling of what sort of saucy sounds Bot can make on his own as he releases “Vamos / Go Down” on Dim Mak Records.
This is huge, y’all! Once you’ve heard this track, you’ll be totally salivating for more of what this Italian mega-machine can do. The sounds of “Vamos / Go Down” are completely unlike anything we’ve heard before; it’s like the dance gods took extra special care in forming a talent as refined, energetic, and absolutely unique as Bot’s. The teaser video below is reminiscent of the Saved By the Bell opening credits, but with thunderous beats and super charged layers blazing into your ears over psychedelic visuals. With a video like this, and a breathtaking producer like Bot, this release is going to be one for the history books.

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.
Hailing from London, the trio known as Scanners have spent the past seven years crafting some of the most diverse music out on the market.

In celebration of this they plan to kick off a Spring Tour, making quite a few stops throughout Germany. If you happen to find yourself in that part of the world, be sure to check out one of their performances. You won’t regret it.
Now that we’re all fully recovered from SXSW and Ultra Music Festival we’d like to share with you raw footage from our Austin Showcase of Will Brennan free styling.

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…
