[info_box_3 title=”ABOUT THE RELEASE”]

“I put together this EP using many different ideas and sounds, drawing inspiration from artist such as W&W, Deorro, Showtek, Diplo, Kendrick Lamar and Tyga . I wanted to fuse all of these elements together with the goal of coming out with something truly unique. I went for making a Big Room feel by creating and combining Dutch, House, Hip Hop, and Massive Electro sounds. I also included a few of my PandaFunk friends on the EP with vocals by Erick Gold and Pasha, and guest production by Duvoh.


I’m excited to share with you guys the WildLife.”

Well, well, well- lookie here! It’s a new remix of early 90’s anthem, “Smells Like Teen Spirit” from Nirvana. The leader in the Seattle grunge scene, in fact their beloved In Utero album turned twenty years old last week. We get that this rock song has been redone for over twenty years, so we thought we should giveaway a remix that one-ups the competition for #FreeFriday. Carlos Melange versus Move & Harren in this remix, complete with a big electro drop that is sure to light any and all flannel shirts on fire. Dim Mak is NOT responsible for your flannel shirt related spontaneous combustion.

The new talent is not the only major tour announcement being made though. A proponent of pro-social causes and a philanthropist in his own right, AOKI’s Steve Aoki Charitable Fund is donating a dollar for every ticket sold throughout the tour to a charity selected by his fans via Facebook. Furthermore, for every year AOKI has been alive, he will match a corresponding $1,000 for a total of $36,000 on the tour. Fans will be encouraged to vote for their chosen charity from a group of four pre-selected organizations, including: American Brain Foundation, committed to curing brain disease; University of Rochester – Memory Care Program, providing diagnosis, treatment, and care of neurodegenerative conditions that affect the elderly and the aging nervous system; Brain Preservation Foundation, evaluating “plastination” and “cryonics,” two ways doctors might inexpensively preserve the brain of a dying person; and Infusio, pushing the fusion of cutting-edge science and the newest developments in complementary medicine placed in a spa-like healing environment. Fans can vote via a dedicated poll on STEVE AOKI’s official Facebook page (www.facebook.com/Steve.Aoki) starting October 9 through November 23. Following the tour, AOKI will hand deliver the check to the chosen charity.

On one of the staple releases for Dim Mak this summer, Carnage and Tony Junior teamed up for the ultimate basketball ode, “Michael Jordan”. Delivering the proper testament to this courtside legend, the original track brought the ever needed energy to dancefloors and festival grounds the world over. Dim Mak is back for another slam dunk with the Michael Jordan remixes, featuring LOUDPVCK, Ookay, Bare, BeTa, and Ranidu.

LOUDPVCK’s remix manipulates the lead synth of “Michael Jordan” into a mashed-up frenzy, opting for a trap edged drop with finger snaps to boot. Ookay takes the vocal sample and gives it a different workout through every drop, each more wild than the last. On Bare’s take, the drop gets fattened up for a jaw-dropping trap tune, turning up the sub frequencies to new heights. BeTa’s OT remix features a distorted bass and rage-friendly electro, perfect for getting the crowd jumping. Drums are aplenty on Ranidu’s Bailatronic remix, unleashing a fury of snares over a variation on Carnage and Tony Junior’s original lead sounds. Whether it is trap or electro, each remix is something that would make Michael Jordan himself proud.

Say hello to the Hollywood EP (Remixes), featuring the likes of Angger Dimas, BAR9, Chris Avantgarde, Haezer, and Sawgood. The Indonesia native and Dim Mak standby Angger Dimas reworks the “Star Wars” original track by transforming it into the ultimate house record to stomp along to. He’s not the only one to keep this theme in mind either–BAR9’s remix for “Bassmonster” is equally as heavy. Chris Avantgarde and Haezer take “Armageddon” and “Jaw Drop” respectively on a ride with a rather industrial-meets-grime sound. Finally, Sawgood has his remix of “Jaw Drop” edited by SOUTH CENTRAL, unleashing a furious dubstep track that truly does justice to its title.

[Billboard Premiere] Keys N Krates, ‘SOLOW’ EP: First Listen

430 430 Tim Gauthier

keys-and-crates-hard-summer-2013-650Were someone to describe Keys N Krates as an artist who includes Diplo and Annie Mac as friends, one whose schedule includes appearances at festival stages like HARD, Mad Decent Block Party and Electric Zoo, and one who is signed to Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak label, you might have and idea of who this artist is. But as a live electronic band, Toronto-based trio Keys N Krates, are anything but a typical EDM act.

In fact, as they show on their new EP, SOLOW, out this Tuesday, there’s still a lot of room for originality in a genre typically defined by similarities. Check out the first listen of SOLOW here, on CODE.
