#15 Clockwork, feat. Wynter Gordon – “Surge” (Dim Mak)
For all EDM’s pop aspirations, it rarely nails that elusive crossover as perfectly as this extended serotonin rush of a song, which floods your brain just as forcefully whether you hear it in a field full of wide-eyed first-time ravers or waiting in line at the grocery store.
Dim Mak welcomes Los Angeles producer Clinton VanSciver to its iconic roster! In this video—set to Clinton VanSciver‘s original track “Finding Other Doors” feat. Tyler Demorest—we see the newest member of the Dim Mak family visiting our headquarters for his official initiation. And what better way to celebrate than shots. Lots and lots of shots!
As his first official release on Dim Mak, Clinton VanSciver recently unleashed the “Indie Anna Jones” EP. Within the first week of its release, the 4-track EP hit Top 10 in the dubstep, progressive house, and glitch-hop genres and #11 in the electro house category on Beatport. The lead single “Indie Anna Jones” has garnered support from countless artists, including Dim Mak head honcho Steve Aoki, Armin van Buuren, Thomas Gold, and more, and it instantly rocketed to the #5 spot on The Hype Machine.
Music is universal. It transcends. It has the ability to transport the listener to another world, another time, displacing any worries he or she may have. There’s nothing like a track that delivers a powerful element of nostalgia.
Felix Cartal’s new single, “Young Love”, taken from his upcoming Past Present Felix EP, embodies the season that often evokes such memories …summer. With a sun-drenched beat, chilling vocals provided by Koko LaRoo, lyrics of youthfulness and the infectious energy that we’ve come to expect from Felix, “Young Love” is a melodious song with enough zest to amp up even the most discerning of music lovers. It’s classic, it’s fresh, it feels the way young love should…it’s everything we love about Felix’s flawless resonance.

Yolanda Be Cool is about to blow your summer into smithereens with the release of “Ladies and Mentalmen”, a 19 track album that shows you what it’s like to really get down be mental with bonafide rhythmic genius. From minute one, with the track “Change (ft Nola Darling)”, the bass gets to knockin’ like the police in the middle of the night, and the remaining tracks get increasingly sexier and bangin from there. Three of the tracks are EXCLUSIVE to Dim Mak Records, including “Sweat Naked”, “All That She Wants” (which features SYF & Fritz Helder from Azari & III providing the vocals on this pounding track), and “Cool Like” (featuring Fatlip)”. Head over to iTunes and get your lesson in cool from Yolanda Be Cool and Dim Mak Records.
It’s Friday and you know what that means – another bangin’ track to get the party started from yours truly at Dim Mak.
RNR 2.0 is Will Brennan‘s sexy summer follow up to his “RNR” single and, true to Will’s signature musical style, the song can’t be defined by just one genre. RNR 2.0 is infused with soothing acoustic melodies, the sensual voice of Jenny Reynolds, and a backdrop of trap beats provided by EthnikKds.
Combined with Will’s smooth rapping, this song is the perfect Friday night jam to blast in the car with friends on the way to wherever you’re about to GET WEIRD.

Be a bully,
wind up homeless.Even if you’ve already seen sixth-grade metal band Unlocking The Truth rocking out in New York’s Times Square(See Below) or Apollo Theater, it’s worth watching this beautiful new video, in which they open up about their private lives.
“Since I wear nail polish, which is not normal … people bother me about it,” says band member Malcolm Brickhouse, who hails from the Flatbush neighborhood of Brooklyn, N.Y. “At times it offends me, at times it doesn’t. So I just write songs about it.”
Jarad Dawkins, of Brooklyn’s Bed-Stuy neighborhood, who has been playing with Brickhouse since the two were just 5 years old, says he’s writing a book about people “who are being bullied in school.” His characters find wealth and fame after forming a band, while those who judged them “have become homeless.”
“It’s based on a true story,” Dawkins explains in the video.
Despite the teasing at school, these two are quickly gaining the fame (though perhaps not the cash) envisioned in Dawkins’ book.
Brickhouse may have summed up the irony best in an interview with The Village Voice in September: “You can hate all you want, but at least you’re talking about me.”
Dim Mak’s newest signee, Clinton VanSciver, has made his first major debut in the dance music scene with his Indie Anna Jones EP, released on Dim Mak Records just two days ago. The recent USC graduate has hit the Beatport charts by storm with his “Summer Serotonin” playlist which features the gritty synth and vocally enthused new single ‘Indie Anna Jones’ along with other stylistically similar tracks that he describes as “[all] the songs I’ve been enjoying (or creating) instead of applying for a f*cking do-nothing job this summer”. Get your hands on this fresh anthem here on Beatport and be prepared to sing your heart out to this lyrically driven dance tune!
The Partysquad has teamed up with The Death Set and Diplo for another monumental Beatport Chart topping collaboration titled ‘P.O.V. 2.0’, released on Dim Mak Records. This time they come at you with a feel-good summer carnival sound reminiscent of circus tents, flashing lights, festival games, and that oh-so-sweet cotton candy. Be sure to get your copy of this Electro House Top 10 track here on Beatport just in time for EDC Vegas!
Dim Mak allstar Clockwork has just provided us a stellar video to go along with his uplifting and hard-hitting anthem “Surge,” which features some sweet vocals from Wynter Gordon. This track was one of the huge anthems of 2013 and if you made it out to any major festivals over the last six months you probably heard it dropped and perhaps even did a little fist-pumping to one of the track’s bleepy drops. The video echoes the high-energy nature of the track and features everything from friends running through the forest to electrified zombies dancing on some sort of post-apocalyptic beach. Points for creativity on this one… (via THUMP)
