dm482Named after the basketball legend, the duo’s first collaboration scores big.

MIchael Jordan’s legacy is untouchable. His six NBA Championship rings are proof of it. They’re drawn in the artwork of Carnage and Tony Junior’s new single named after His Airness. The two DJ/producers were inspired by the man commonly recognized as the greatest basketball player of all time when naming the tune. Listen to the premiere, exclusively here!

“When we were testing out the track, people jumped like crazy on it, so we thought about someone that could jump really high,” Junior explains. “Then Carnage said, ‘Let’s call it ‘Michael Jordan!’ And the name was born.”

Aoki Files #35 w/ Autoerotique

419 267 Tim Gauthier

You won’t want to miss this exclusive interview with rapidly evolving DJ god Autoerotique as he gives Aoki the 4-1-1 on his hot new single “Apshyxiation.” Not only has the track blown up the Beatport charts in recent days, but it’s also launched viral web buzz with the incredibly erotic (no pun intended) music video featuring a bunch of scantily clad sex vixens playing an intense game of dodgeball. In other news, Autoerotique dishes on the recent remix EP for his Beatport-charting collaboration single with Felix Cartal, “The Alarm.” Be sure to head over to Autoerotique’s artist profile on the Dim Mak website to check out all of his latest releases and follow him on Twitter (@autoerotique) as he keeps making moves.

Teaser Time: Carnage & Tony Junior – ‘Michael Jordan’

841 470 Tim Gauthier

Los Angeles-based producer/DJ CARNAGE is teaming up with Dutch producer TONY JUNIOR to release their next major single “Michael Jordan” on Dim Mak Records July 23. “Michael Jordan”—an homage to the iconic basketball player and his legendary jersey number #23—shows CARNAGE and TONY JUNIOR flirting with enormous trance builds and thrashing hardstyle flavor for a new sound set to take the EDM crowds by storm. “Michael Jordan” is a genre-blurring track that carries a unique style only CARNAGE and TONY JUNIOR can call their own.

In this preview teaser of the “Michael Jordan” track, we see CARNAGE and TONY JUNIOR rocking the festival crowds and fans losing their collective minds. Grab “Michael Jordan” and listen for it at all major music festivals this year.

Happy Tuesday everyone, I hope you made your weekends vast and epic as you should. I just wanted to touch base with everyone, catch up, and recap some time I spent last weekend with Infected Mushroom. The Israel-bred, LA based duo is made up of Amit “Duvdev” Duvdevani, and Erez Eisen. They started collaborating in 1997 in Kiryat Yam, Haifa District, Israel.

In addition to twice being voted into the top 10 for DJ Magazine’s Top 100 DJ’s, they have also left footprints in both dance and rock genres, having worked with Perry Farrell from Jane’s Addiction and Jonathan Davis from Korn.

The two have released such hit albums as 2009’s Legend of the Black Shwarma, which peaked at #9 on Billboard’s Top Electronic Albums chart, scored such dance hits as “Killing Time” and “Smashing the Opponent,” and to top it all off, they average about 120 live performances a year. Boom goes the dynamite. Also, out today on Dim Mak Records, “Friends on Mushrooms, Vol. 2.”

Now these live performances brought about a revolutionary live show, which I’m sure you’ll know what I’m talking about if you’ve ever been to one of their gigs. The set is a 3D landscape designed by Vita Motus Design Studio and V Squared Labs; it is truly one of a kind, and they brought it to the Avalon this past Saturday, July 7th to have a little playtime with the L.A. fans. I had the good fortune to steal a quick conversation with them before they hit the stage. (via MAGNETIC MAG)

Electro rock/dance duo INFECTED MUSHROOM—composed of founders Amit “Duvdev” Duvdevani and Erez Eisen—announce the release of Friends on Mushrooms, Vol. 2, out now via Dim Mak Records. The second installment of their Friends on Mushrooms series, Friends on Mushrooms, Vol. 2 sees the Israeli psychedelic dance music progenitors teaming with a slew of new collaborators, including electro artist Savant, who lends his touch to the breathtaking opener “Savant on Mushrooms”; New Zealand-born singer Kelsy Karter on “Now is Gold”; and Norwegian duo Pegboard Nerds on “Nerds on Mushrooms.” Also included on the EP are tracks “Trance Party,” which takes listeners on a sonic journey that appeals equally to INFECTED MUSHROOM’s core fan base as well as new generations to come, and closer “The French.” On Friends on Mushrooms, Vol. 2, INFECTED MUSHROOM forges new sonic territories, while taking giant leaps in creating a complex and captivating soundscape.

Yolanda Be Cool’s newest single “Sweat Naked,” off their latest album ‘Ladies and Mentalmen’ out now on Dim Mak Records, undeniably lives up to its racy name. This rhythmically driven tune, with its industrial drum sound and unique, hypnotizing vocals, encompasses the classic underground vibe that takes you back to the good ol’ warehouse rave days. Powered by Yolanda Be Cool’s love for diversity and juxtaposition, inclusion and craziness, “Sweat Naked” will make you want to bare down and do just that!

Music Video: Botnek – “Through The Night” [THUMP Exclusive]

398 347 Tim Gauthier

Steve Aoki star students Botnek are back with a new video for “Through The Night,” their first single since last year’s spicily-titled Sriracha & Beer EP. Think of the two dudes, Erick Muise and Gordon Huntley, as Montreal’s version of Crookers (you know, while there were still two of them)—two party maestros who love emotional piano breakdowns, double fisting beers, and helping you have a TOTALLY EPIC time.

Fittingly, the video chronicles one long night out with the boys as they tumble from their studio to the center stage of a club filled with unicorn heads and hot chicks, before ending up at a groupie-packed after-party with even more hot chicks. Two themes persist throughout their perilous odyssey: getting wasted and awkward dancing. (via THUMP)
