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…

Aaaah, spring time. A time for flowers, soft rain showers, and… GROUND BREAKING ANTHEMS? What?! This ain’t your grandma’s season anymore. Leading the pack of up and coming crowd pumping anthems to be released in the next few months is “This Record” by Jacob Van Hage and Billy the Kit, out on Dim Mak Records on April 2nd.
“This Record” is a heart racing, sweat inducing track that takes what you thought you knew about electro house and mind numbing drops and makes your knowledge look like that of a two year old with a toy piano. We’ve come to expect nothing less than pure music magic from the duo Jacob Van Hage and Billy the Kit, so when these forces combine as they have for “This Record”, the result is sure to be devastating to sound systems for the rest of the year.
Check out a sneak peak of “This Record” and start counting down the days until April 2nd when this scorching track can be yours to bump indefinitely, courtesy of Dim Mak Records.
Our Belgium friends of super sexy boyband “Sound of Stereo” made another great EP for you all! The EP is called “TFA”, which stands for “Time For Action”. Today we’re going about this feature a little differently… We’re pulling from their super secret vaults an unreleased remix by one of Canadas-finest; Botnek.
“Here’s a remix we did for our friends Sound Of Stereo’s new, but not-so-new single. For a limited time only, we’re offering this at flat-zero discount, at 100%-off… So buy now, sort of…”

Veteran producers SHOWTEK are not new to the world of dance music. In fact, for the last thirteen years they have been making music that has garnered high praise and the attention of some of the biggest names in pop music today. 2013 is shaping up to be another exciting year for the Dutch duo as they climb charts with absolutely no intention of slowing down at all.
Earlier this month SHOWTEK released “Slow Down” on Dim Mak Records, and just a few days ago this hyper tune sat at #8 on Beatport’s Top10….but oh what a difference a few days (and unyielding support from fans) can make! As of today, “Slow Down” is now sitting pretty at #2! And for good reason…I mean have you heard this track? It’s fun, it’s alive, it’s energetic, and it’s looking at the #1 spot with fire in its eyes while cracking its knuckles.
This isn’t the first time SHOWTEK have seen some chart love; “Slow Down” is the fifth release from these producing brothers to make it into the Beatport Top 10, and we here at Dim Mak Records are ultra proud to be the home of this latest chart-climbing, epic dance anthem that is sure to be on every playlist/mixtape/countdown for the rest of the year. Listen to the track below and let’s get these guys to #1 all across the board!

In 2008 Beltek‘s career was launched with his original track “Copacabana”, which garnered the attention of Pete Tong. Since then he was been on the grind, producing massive originals and creating remixes for major artists such as Booka Shade, Gareth Emery, Tiesto and more. In 2012 he created “Party Voice” which became the official track for Ultra Music Festival‘s remix competition. This year in celebration of his success, the man himself has crafted a compilation of what can be described as nothing but the most epic of tracks out on the market. Featuring many of his own originals as well as other electro and progressive tracks from the likes of Showtek, Armin Van Buuren, and Sidney Samson, this DJ chart is one you absolutely do not want to miss out on…trust us.

Whether you prefer the sounds of dubstep bassiness or fast flowing, mind numbingly good lyrics (or perhaps a mixture of both), I have fantastic news; warm up your “high five” hand because we here at Dim Mak Records are super psyched to announce that our very own Will Brennan has landed at #9 on TrackItDown’s “Top 100 Dubstep Songs”!
It really shouldn’t be a surprise, especially if you’ve heard which song TrackItDown chose; RNR (Enferno Remix). This remix is nice and chunky, like delicious southwest salsa, and every bit as hot. Released exactly a week ago today on Dim Mak Records, “RNR” and its creator Will Brennan have had an incredibly exciting March. He tore up the stage at the Electric Lounge during SXSW, unleashed the “RNR” EP plus all its delicious remixes into the world, and now he’s hanging out at #9 on a list chock full of heavy hitters. I’d say that all the hard work this young Florida native is putting in has paid off, but the success of “RNR” and Brennan’s placement on the chart speaks loud and clear. Congrats Will & Enferno!
