Botnek makes an emphatic return to Dim Mak with the gargantuan 4-track EP “Connecting?” With the two sinister lead singles “Clickbait” and “Losing My Mind” creeping their way into live sets across the festival circuit, the boys are back to continue their sonic assault with the full-fledged project. From the gritty hyper house effort “Bad Bitch” to the mid-tempo electro offering “Touch Me,” the Canadian duo’s signature sound is on full display as they prove once again they are among the top sound designers in the game.
Making his New Noise debut, bass music whiz-kid Jameston Thieves delivers the spellbinding house number “Alterspace (Rest).” In impressive fashion, the Phoenix native weaves bouncy bass guitar plucks with sultry male vocals before uncorking a menacing bass house drop.
Steve Aoki unleashes his club-oriented opus “4OKI.” Aligning with some of Dim Mak’s most promising talents, Aoki sets the dancefloor in motion with this forward thinking 4-track EP. Teaming up with label-mate Autoerotique for the project’s intro track, “ILYSM” features drop-tuned vocals, a funky bassline and a melody of fluty synths that thrust the record to the mainroom. Aoki then collabs with extended Dim Mak fam Shaun Frank on “Dope Girlz,” a bass house jam with a low-pitched vocal account that beckons you to keep sippin’. Old school then meets new school in the form of a Steve Aoki x Reid Stefan collaboration. Newcomer Stefan brings his booty music influence to “Bring The Funk Back,” a wubby underground tune made club-ready by electrifying Aoki synths. To close out 4OKI, recent Dim Mak affiliate MORTEN steps into the ring with Aoki for the massive bass-heavy electro earworm “Kids.” The hard-hitting track boasts the contagious refrain, “The drum kick hits and the kids will die.”
Garmiani’s mainstage weapon “Bomb A Drop” receives a remix package of atomic proportions. Dim Mak’s MORTEN injects his signature bass-infused electro house sounds into the original, while Bay Area young gun T-Mass gives the track a roaring trap makeover. The package is rounded out with a blistering dubstep rework from Atlanta duo Sunday Service.

The prolific “Hot N*gga” producer Jahlil Beats solidifies the partnership between his newly-christened Tandem Music imprint and electronic music powerhouse Dim Mak Records via a fiery collaboration with his protégé Bok Nero entitled “Hop Out The Phantom.” Having recently introduced the partnership via the raucous “NERO NERO” on Dim Mak’s New Noise imprint, the two Philly phenoms make an undeniable statement with this club-ready hip hop beast. Under Jahlil’s wing, budding MC / vocalist Bok Nero is ready to take his dynamic hip-hop / EDM crossover sound global as he prepares to release his highly anticipated EP “Lorde of Legions” on Tandem Music / Dim Mak.
