Now firmly cemented as one of the staple tracks in the Dirtyphonics discography, “Hanging On Me” made headlines earlier in 2013 for its huge dubstep sound. Now a number of versatile artists have lent their hands to remix this dancefloor devastator into wholly different creations.

Borgore and Ookay teamed up for their remix of “Hanging On Me”, bringing together two different genres into one tight package. The first drop in this track leans on devastating hardstyle sounds with its snapping kicks. The second drop however will surely leave crowds surprised, as it breaks into a full trap workout. The Kastle remix goes into a polar opposite direction. Pulling off the fresh new remixed sound seamlessly, the Kastle remix is proper 2-step garage. This track fits perfectly into club sets, with its warm lead sounds and triplet sections, all whilst keeping Liela Moss’s vocals intact. Finally, the Slogun & iOh remix turns “Hanging On Me” into the drum & bass we know and love. A sizable reworking of the original track’s synths turns this remix into a break-beaten killer track for the D&B massive.

SAVAGE SKULLS & DOUSTER released the Bass Kick EP in early 2013, a mixture of 808’s, garage and even Dutch influences across its tracks. The time has come for a number of producers to try their hands at these songs, with DON RIMINI, ASTRONOMAR, DONOVANS and SWICK at their respective helms for the Bass Kick Remix EP. DON RIMINI‘s take on “Bass Kick” is club-friendly house, filled with percussive and bass elements that’ll keep the crowd moving. The hip-hop touch for “Bass Kick” is provided by ASTRONOMAR, fusing breakbeats with the electronic elements we know and love. “TRT” is a garage highlight for 2013, and the DONOVANS remix goes one step further, taking the vocal one shots and piano leads of the original “TRT” and adding in a distinctly hard and distorted kick to amplify the drop portions. The SWICK remix of “TRT” turns up the dub end of things, opting towards a phat lead and tight hi-hats galore. Whether it be house, hip-hop, or garage, the Bass Kick Remix EP has something for everyone.

Kevin Focus shows us that, when it comes to electronic music, less isn’t always more. In fact “Less is Snore”. The long awaited follow up to Focus’s number one selling EP Stuck 7/Brock Out takes his progressive, big room sound and fuses it with his past underground roots. “Less is Snore” embodies Kevin Focus’s musical paradigm. An audio synthesis of genres and styles, “Less is Snore” is the end result of six months in studio and a three-year relationship between Focus and Dim Mak label head Steve Aoki. Equipped with “Less is Snore”, the last several months have seen Aoki secretly debut the track in clubs and festivals around the world, to great acclaim.

2013 has been a huge year for English alternative band, “Scanners.” This June marked the release of their long awaited third album, “Love is Symmetry” on Dim Mak Records. To follow up, 5 songs on the album have been chosen for 8 remixers to give their interpretation on Scanners. First off the Ep is Fei-Fei’s remix of the title track. She takes the song’s energy up a few notches with her invigorating, bass-heavy style. Next, Carpenter Brut’s electro spin does something similar on “Control” by including a heavy rock influence. T.W.I.N.S then takes “Mexico” and adds an indie dance vibe, resulting in a fun, playful beat. Then, “State of Wonder” gets a “hard bass” remix by Zeskulls. The intro keeps the good-feel vibes of the original tune, but then takes a quick turn as Zeskull’s signature wobbles takes the driving wheel. The 5th remix on the EP is another remix of “Control” by Boots N’ Pants. As you listen to this remix, let your mind and body get carried away with this relaxing, deep house groove. The energy picks up again with the second remix of “State of Wonder,” a pumping electro-house track tailored by Kevin Focus. Following next is a creative, beat-intensive, drum n’ bass remix by Aeronautica. Their expert sound design adds a unique touch to this remix of “Mexico.” Finally, the Remix Ep ends on a great note with Hiroshima Twinky’s take on “Control.,” a beautiful piece that is easy to fall in love with.

[SPIN Premiere] KASTLE Wrings a Bubbly 2-Step Remix out of Dirtyphonics’ Brutal ‘Hanging on Me’

820 546 Tim Gauthier

130926-dirtyphonics-kastle (1)

Is there any sound so tough that a U.K. garage refix can’t turn into something pliable and seductive? Apparently, not, at least judging from the Los Angeles producer Kastle’s remix of “Hanging on Me,” a new song from the French quartet Dirtyphonics. Their recent singles have typically trod the line between headbanging and Ed Banging: “No Stopping Us,” featuring Foreign Beggars, was hip-house via Alice in Chains, while “Walk in the Fire” was forged of blast beats and chugging metal guitars. “Hanging on Me” is similar, marrying Master of Puppets-inspired twinned leads to a shuddering, dubsteppy cadence and topping it off with vocals from the Duke Spirit’s Liela Moss, who here sounds, improbably but intriguingly, a little like Cat Power imitating Ozzy Osbourne. In Kastle’s hands, though, the tune flashes back to 2-step’s glory days, complete with bouncy organ bass line and synths as bubbly as a freshly uncorked bottle of Dom. In contrast to 2-step’s habit of making chipmunks out of its singers, he plays Moss’ vocals relatively straight, save for a judicious bit of glottal chopping, but he strays from convention by briefly flipping the groove into a brittle triplet rhythm that’s halfway between trap and Schaffel. If you’ve ever dreamed of a Lex Luger/Superpitcher collaboration, here’s the next best thing. (via SPIN)

Dim Mak x Earmilk x TomorrowWorld Announce The Official CHAMPION of The DJ Open!

1365 2048 Tim Gauthier

With over 700 submissions, the Dim Mak x Earmilk x TomorrowWorld DJ Open fueled one of the hottest competitive bonfires in electronic dance music history!

Hundreds of aspiring DJ’s from across the nation put their heart and soul into creating mixes that blew our minds. It would be an understatement to say that choosing a winner was not easy and we appreciate each and every person who submitted. However, after hours of listening to and researching each contestant, it soon became clear to us who the winner should be, based upon the rules and regulations we established from the beginning.

Not only did we pay special attention to the originality, creativity, and diversity of the mix, we also took into consideration the way in which the artist branded themselves to their fans and the hussle and drive they’ve put into making a name for themselves and their music thus far. In the end, we chose a well-rounded winner we believe to be not only extremely talented, but also excellent at strategically and creatively marketing themselves and their music to their audience while differentiating themselves from the competition.

And now, without further adieu, the artist we’ve chosen to open the Dim Mak Up All Night Stage at the first-ever TomorrowWorld 2013 is LA-based producer duo, 2 DEEP:

Dim Mak Krew TAKE OVER At The First Ever National Red Bull Flugtag! #ByAnyMeansNecessary

2000 1325 Tim Gauthier

This past weekend marked the first, national Red Bull Flugtag event in Long Beach, CA. Over 110,000 people spectators showed up to watch as 28 teams launched their clever flying contraptions off the Rainbow Harbor pier in hopes of taking home the title of champion and possibly breaking a world record.

Being Dim Mak, we can never resist a challenge, so we teamed up with our good friends at We Are Matik to create the Interactive Boombox Flugtag. While we didn’t take first place or set a world record, we did get a 7.5 for creativity and kicked it with the Workaholics doods (see below). Next year we plan on returning to the annual Red Bull Flugtag with a vengeance like no other – DOMINATION #BYANYMEANSNECESSARY

Peep the vid of our heroic flight, led by none other than CAPTAIN JENKS (see above).
