Tristan Garner – Imperium

February 11, 2014 Tim Gauthier New Music Tags: ,

Fresh off massive remixes for the likes of Zedd, Avicii, Tiesto and Armin Van Buuren, Tristan Garner puts forth his stunning debut for Dim Mak, “Imperium.”

“Garner comes out swinging with a fat and fierce electro bassline with a heavy rhythmic bounce. The Paris native puts his technical music knowledge to work by contrasting this powerful sound with an elegantly harmonious breakdown, eventually transitioning into a full, big room progression. Garner truly displays his raw talent with ‘Imperium.’”Dancing Astronaut

If you’ve been a fan of Dim Mak for awhile now, the name Kele Okereke probably rings a bell. If it doesn’t, the name Bloc Party definitely should. Kele is the frontman for award-winning British rock band Bloc Party who released their self-titled EP on Dim Mak back in 2004! Bloc Party also performed at our beloved #DimMakTuesdays at Cinespace and we’ll always consider them to be a special part of the Dim Mak family.

Yolanda Be Cool‘s “All That She Wants ft. SYF & Fritz Helder” juxtaposes cheeky & fun with dark & haunting all wrapped around the irresistible vox of the “Hungry for the Power” boys and one of THOSE baselines.

On the remix tip, Defected Records and Hot Creations artist Human Life gives a nod to the original on his housey re-work while Pete Tong future stars pick Walker & Royce keep things dark, but oh so cool with their remix and their bonus deep space dub mix.

#FreeFriday Episode No. 073: Borgore feat. Waka Flocka Flame & Paige – ‘Wild Out’ (Boots N’ Pants Remix)

January 24, 2014 Tim Gauthier #FreeFriday Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

Deep house is on the rise and even a label that shows a clear appreciation for high-energy electro such as Dim Mak Records wants to give us a taste. A couple relative newcomers on the US west coast electronic music circuit, Boots N’ Pants have expressed their prowess dabbling in the deep end with their remix of Borgore’s “Wild Out” featuringWaka Flocka Flame and Paige. The LA duo strip out the hip-hop components and festival-electro drop for a classic 4/4 beat with shuffling high-hats and rhythmic tom embellishments. Paige’s sensual voice compliments the verse’s ominous vibe with a couple of Waka’s lines sampled and looped, just until the deep pulsating bass lead hits your eardrum. This seems to be the first of a batch of remixes set to be released on January 28th. (via Dancing Astronaut)

Keys N Krates join Vimeo’s Top 10 Videos of 2013

January 20, 2014 Tim Gauthier Video Tags: , , ,

With its long, ambiguous buildup in outer space, the opening to this video kills us. The music is bumpin’, the handclaps are going, we’re ready to go, but to where? Then BOOM! The video’s concept kicks in, and it’s grins from ear to ear. We don’t believe in guilty pleasures, but this vid is pretty sinful, and when it finishes we’re ready to press play and indulge again. Ohji definitely knows how to treat us right. (Jason Sondhi)

Widely recognized as the originator of the ‘Dirty House’ movement, Vato Gonzalez is no stranger to groundbreaking club music. Following his recent Beatport smash ‘Sushi Riddim’, he now makes his Dim Mak debut with ‘Volfied Riddim’. Tired of the same old ideas and sounds, then you’ve just found your weapon of choice. ‘Volfied Riddim’ is that one record that can turn any club upside down, boasting heaps of raw & relentless energy. Earlybird support from David Guetta, Steve Aoki, Diplo, Nicky Romero, Bingo Players, W&W, The Crystal Method, Alvaro, Tommie Sunshine, Dirtyphonics, Mightyfools, and Angger Dimas indicates that this could be another big one for the original Dirty House bastard.

FEADZ (Ed BANGER) IS BACK IN LA FOR HIS ALBUM RELEASE PARTY @ #DimMakTuesdays!

January 13, 2014 Tim Gauthier Events, Interviews Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Tomorrow evening, January 14th, we are pleased to once again have our good friends at the legendary Ed Banger Records in the house for Feadz’s album release party where he’ll be promoting his latest LP Instant Alpha. Joining Feadz on the decks will be Sydney-based tech house producer Light Year, up and coming production duo Phantoms whose self-titled EP is out now on OWSLA’s Nest, LA-based producer Mike B, and our trusty resident Bones! This isn’t the first time Feadz has brought the beats to our beloved #DimMakTuesdays – last March, he tore up the decks with Oliver Twizt and gave LA a rare taste of what he and the Ed Banger crew have been cooking up over in Paris. Recently, we had the opportunity to chat directly with Feadz before the big event tomorrow and, needless to say, this producer is one game-changing BADASS.

Enjoy an exclusive preview of Instant Alpha  (100% satisfaction guaranteed) which is now available for purchase exclusively on Beatport!

[highlight style=”default”][highlighttext title=”Get schooled on all things Feadz in our exclusive interview with him!” titlesize=”h6″ subtitle=””][/highlighttext][/highlight]

1.     What can people expect from your set this week at #DimMakTuesdays?

I hope the unexpected.

2.     This isn’t your first time playing #DimMakTuesdays – in fact, you played here last March with Oliver Twizt! What do you think about #DimMakTuesdays?

I had a warm welcome and reaction and I love the fact that it is on a Tuesday. For me it represents people’s concern about music and not a random crowd who is going out on the weekend.

3.     You’ve been referred to as “a child of hip hop,” can you tell us some of the artists who’ve influenced your music from the beginning? How do you feel your sound has evolved throughout the years from hip hop style turntablism to more techno-sounding productions?

Public Enemy has been the major influence in my life – so much room for scratching and so much great music, pitched down or up or manipulated in extreme ways for a result that is unexpected and not regular  in a classic music eye. I think hip hop is becoming more & more techno over the years – it’s more minimal, it’s more synthetic, and I think my sound has followed the same path unconsciously.

4.     You were in a scratch band in the early 90’s, what was that like?

It was a lot of guys, of lot of smoke, a lot of sweat, and a lot of technical practice. It was great for a while.

5.     You’ve been with the legendary Ed Banger Records since 2005, how did that partnership first come about?

Paris is small and Pedro Winter has always been an influential DJ, so from my first records, I was giving them to him and he was liking my sound. As soon as he created the label, he offered to release my music.

6.     It’s been awhile since you’ve been in LA, what are you most looking forward to while being out here? What’s your take on the LA music scene?

Of course i’m looking for better weather than here, and I’m very glad to show LA the music that I consider to be the best . I feel very far from the scene, being at the Hard Festival last year in LA I couldn’t believe the amount of horrible music I heard. For a country who invented techno music, I can’t believe the direction it went in and the music that is popular out there. I’m sorry to say that but I think Americans have terrible taste when it comes to electronic music. But on the other hand, it’s never been that popular so it’s still good and I got faith on many U.S. producers who are gonna level it up.

7.     You’ve done remixes for Boys Noize, Cashmere Cat, Surkin, & Mr. Oizo to name a few. What have been some of your favorite collaborations so far?

All those mentioned here are collabs that have made me very happy . I couldn’t really choose a favorite amongst them.

8.     What’s your take on the evolution of djing and what do you see as the future of edm?

DJing is turning more and more has a producer representation. It’s a little sad that the original job of the DJ – finding great music for you to discover and dance to – is thought less of than your average entertainer (who is gonna play easy and raise his hands on every track to put you in the mood). And as I was saying, I think the music can only get better as I think it’s pretty horrible right now – just my opinion though, I’m known to be pretty critical but it’s just because it’s important to me.

Los Angeles is about to get BASSED with AC Slater! #NightBass

January 13, 2014 Tim Gauthier Events, Interviews Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

On January 30th, we’re kicking off the year with the launch of Night Bass, a new event series curated by the king of heavy bass house AC Slater and his Brooklyn-based record label Party Like Us. Starting January 30 at Sound Nightclub in Los Angeles, Night Bass features a diverse array of talent highlighting leaders of the U.K. bass-driven scene and caters to the night owls of the world.

Serving as Los Angeles’ best new underground event, Night Bass brings the sound that’s bubbling out of the bass bins from dark clubs and warehouses the world over direct to local audiences. Expect to hear cutting-edge house, garage, bassline, and boundary-pushing music. Together with Dim Mak, Party Like Us, and AC Slater, Night Bass brings the most unique party to Los Angeles.

For the opening event, Night Bass welcomes original Dirtybird player Christian Martin, who brings his tech-house flavor to the dance floor, along with Party Like Us label head AC Slater himself, who adds his unique spin on house and bass music. Main Course co-founder Astronomar joins the night with additional support from LA bass head Petey Clicks and local LA tastemaker Bones.
 

[highlight style=”default”][highlighttext title=”For the 411 on this exciting new event series, check out our exclusive interview with AC Slater!” titlesize=”h6″ subtitle=””][/highlighttext][/highlight]

1. Dim Mak: You are gearing up to present a collaborative party between Dim Mak and your label, Party Like Us. The night is being introduced as a home for cutting-edge house, garage, bassline, and more. Can you elaborate on the type of music party-goers will hear?

Think high-energy bass music with some soul. Somewhere between the big world of EDM and the underground sound of house music, that’s where Night Bass lives.

2. Describe the Party Like Us brand.

We want to share our musical influences and tastes with everyone. Party Like Us is bringing unique sounds to America on a regular basis via our releases. We want to shake things up and show music fans new sounds to keep them excited about dance music.

3. What can partygoers expect from an event thrown by Party Like Us and Dim Mak?

People can expect a well-curated night of fresh, bass-heavy house music that Party Like Us specializes in with the hype and excitement of a Dim Mak production.

4. How will Night Bass be different from any other party in the LA area?

This isn’t an event about standing and watching crazy visuals or an LED wall light up. This is about enjoying music on a nice sound system in a great atmosphere. On top of that, you will not hear a lot of this music anywhere else in LA. That’s the difference, something fresh for the city, an alternative to the norm.

[one_half]

5. You will be spinning at these parties. What are some tracks that you think will set the tone for the night?

You’ll hear me play a lot of forthcoming, unreleased Party Like Us tracks as well as tunes from labels like Black Butter, Four 40 Records, Rinse, Trouble & Bass, and much more. Exciting, forward-thinking music, from uplifting vocal tracks to dark, driving bassline tunes.

I’ve also created a special Night Bass Spotify Playlist featuring songs I’ve been playing out for the past month or so that always get the party going, along with some dope tracks by the artists performing at the very first Night Bass event.[/one_half][one_half_last]

[/one_half_last]

6. Fast-forward one year: You have the amazing opportunity to curate a very special Night Bass 1-Year Anniversary Party. Who are those special guest DJs that would grace the decks?

My 1-year anniversary dream line up might be:

U.K. Garage legend DJ EZ
Zinc
Claude VonStroke
Taiki & Nulight
AC Slater & Petey Clicks (B2B)

7. Anything else you want to tell your fans and friends?

Shout out to Sound and Dim Mak for helping us bring this to life. Shout out to all the Party Animals coming to get involved in the Night Bass movement every month!

Let’s get Uberjak’d

January 9, 2014 Tim Gauthier Interviews, News Tags: , , , , ,

uberjakd logo colorDim Mak Records is proud to welcome our newest artist Uberjak’d to the family! Uberjak’d is an Australian producer, who recently exploded onto the global electronic music scene with his electro-influenced Melbourne Bounce sound. This past year Uberjak’d mixed Australia’s #1 dance compilation Ministry of Sound The Annual and joined the nationwide tour, performed for 15,000 people at the Stereosonic festival, and celebrated his spot as the #1 podcast in Australia on iTunes, beating out Hardwell and Tiësto.

Uberjak’d is hoping to bring the Melbourne Bounce sound to the U.S. with the release of his upcoming EP on Dim Mak Records. Uberjak’d isn’t a stranger to Dim Mak, featuring on the Autoerotique Asphyxiation (Remixes) EP.

 

[highlight style=”default”][highlighttext title=”To find out more about this rising artist check out our exclusive interview!” titlesize=”h6″ subtitle=””][/highlighttext][/highlight]

1.    Hi Uberjak’d, welcome to Dim Mak! We’re excited to have you as part of our family. Can you tell us a bit about why you joined Dim Mak?

Thanks! Pleasure to be part of the family. I have always been a big fan of the label. I see Dim Mak as a label that isn’t afraid to push sounds that are new, fresh, or different from the normal.

2.    Describe your sound. Any artists and/or genres of music that have been particularly influential in your productions?

Melbourne Bounce obviously! I have been hooked on that sound ever since I discovered it while skipping class at uni to listen to music and as well as living in Adelaide. I wasn’t lucky enough to go check out this music in the clubs, so I had to compromise and downloaded the tunes off the Melbourne Bounce forums. At the time I’d heard nothing like this sound. This was the early days of the sound, so like Orkestrated, Kalus, Dean Del were all guys producing this underground, really techno-influenced electro. That was about five or six years ago, way before I even considered DJing myself. So fast forward a couple years and I had established myself as a DJ in my hometown Adelaide. I’d also been playing a few gigs in Melbourne and really wanted to put my own harder electro/rave influence on the Melbourne Sound, and I guess you will hear a lot of that sound on my new EP.

3.    You’ll soon be releasing an EP on Dim Mak followed by a spring U.S. tour. What can you tell us about the EP? How do you hope to impact the dance music scene in the U.S. through this new partnership with Dim Mak?

I’m stoked for this EP. It’s really an Uberjak’d & Friends EP with collaborations with Chardy, Krunk!, and Sarah Bodle supplying some amazing vocals for another. The first track with Sarah Bodle is a bit big room meets techno meets Melbourne. I was inspired in elements by the old anthem and one of my favorite tunes of all time “Stranger To Stability” (Len Faki Podium Mix). Sarah did a great job on the vocals and this is my second track with her, so we have worked together and she has also performed live at some of my shows. The track with Chardy, “All Aboard,” was something we wrote about eight months ago, but have kept it tight and I’m so stoked it’s coming out on this EP. That one is a bit hardstyle, a bit Melbourne. Not sure what it is, but I think that’s why I like it! The track with Krunk!, my boy back in Adelaide, is definitely hardstyle, but we really rip it back in the break and get melodic and chilled, so it’s a bit of a contrast. The final tune, “Static,” is a solo track and is rave vs. Melbourne. I like the riff in it, sort of reminds me of bag pipes. Maybe it’s some of my Scottish blood coming through in that track.

4.    There seems to be a surge of Australian producers taking over electronic music (Flume, Anna Lunoe, Will Sparks, the Stafford Brothers to name a few). What do you think is the reason for this? Do you feel that where you’re from has had an influence on your music in any way?

I think that Australia has always been a place that embraces and pushes forward-thinking sounds, which gives artists the freedom to do something different. I think where you live, more importantly the shows you perform as a DJ, has a huge effect on your sound. As a DJ, I want to make music that the fans at my shows enjoy, and different places always have a different vibe. Thanks to social media and SoundCloud, being so accessible these days and getting your sound out to people has never been easier.

5.     You’ve been at the forefront of the growing Melbourne bounce scene in Australia alongside artists like Will Sparks. Do you think the Melbourne Bounce sound will catch on in the U.S.?

Hahaha! I hope so! I guess if I love this music so much, if Australia loves it this much, then why can’t America or the world? Will Sparks has just returned from his tour and it looks like the reception for him and the sound was really good, so hopefully that’s a sign for good things. I think the great thing about EDM, as it’s known in the U.S., is that it’s about innovation and looking for something fresh. I guess electronic dance music has always been about that, so I hope that people are up for this sound. A funny thing is that when I first started to play Melbourne Bounce outside of Melbourne, there was a track I played at my gigs. I won’t name the artist or the track, but it’s now a bit of an anthem over here. I used to play the track at my gigs and literally people would walk off the dance floor. They didn’t understand it and it was something so different to what they have heard or were used to. About 6-8 months later, people are requesting it on their phones during gigs and they know all the lyrics to it and can’t get enough of the track. So what I’m saying basically is you might not love Melbourne Bounce the first time you hear it…but you will eventually.

 6.    You recently did a remix for Autoerotique’s “Asphyxiation,” which was released on Dim Mak Records this past July. Can you tell us more about that remix? What can you tell us about your remix process?

Yeah, I actually had a lot of fun remixing that one! I guess when approaching a remix, you don’t want to change the essence of what makes that track great. For me, it was those chords and the vocal, so I knew I had to keep them. And then it’s just a matter of adding your flavor to it because that’s why someone would want you to do a remix. Some advice to producers and DJs: If a label asks you to remix in a certain style to fit their remix pack, don’t do it. A remix is about adding your style, find what makes your sound unique and use the shit out of it!

7.    Dream collaborations? Any Dim Mak artists you’d like to collaborate with in the future? A certain Steve perhaps?

Ohh yeah! Of course I would love to collab with the big man! I have a collab with Deorro as well, which started when we were both in Amsterdam for ADE last year, as well as a collab I started with Autoerotique. So maybe keep an ear out for them in 2014.

8.    You recently posted on Facebook, “I think 2014 will be the year of deep house and hard style…” Why do you say this and what’s your take on the future of EDM?

I always say this, but what I mean is not that all DJs will start playing this style, but it will influence what is popular. I think we have already seen the big hardstyle kick thing go crazy, and I think the groove-driven vibe of deep house will somehow start being heard more in different genres. Innovation is what makes music so interesting. A few people have asked me, “Why no Melbourne Bounce??? ” Of course I hope it has a big year for all my boys in Australia. There is so much talent here with guys like J-Trick, Joel Fletcher, Reece Low, Chardy, and SCNDL. I think it’s time we all came over to the US to show you how we do it!

Coone & Substance One – Drowning (Official Video)

“Drowning” with Substance One is a featured track on Coone’s recently released full-length album “Global Dedication.” The track demonstrates the more melodious spectrum of “Global Dedication,” spotlighting harmonious vocals. A mixture of plush chord progressions and intricately sewn melodies shows off the diversity possible in modern hardstyle. Most impressive of all is how the serene vocals truly capture the emotional context in “Drowning.”

After much consideration of a whopping assortment of multi genres submissions, the winner of the Dancing Astronaut, Dim Mak & WAVO “Bring You To Life (Transcend)” remix competition has been awarded to REGOTON!

Regoton has utilized smart production, an irresistible Melbourne-Bounce lead and great variation that edged out the other contenders. However the competition was so fierce, we felt two other remixes were very close so we have awarded them our Staff Choice winners: Hallvard Vaaland Remix and Inscape Remix, both bringing two unique takes. Hallvard Vaaland creates high energy anthemic vibes that will impress progressive house fans and on the flip side, Inscape takes a direction opposite to many of the other submissions by demonstrating how chill & downtempo influences can be implemented in reworking a track into a wholly different vibe.

Beatport Play hosts remix contest for Coone & Jim Ferren’s ‘150 BPM’

January 7, 2014 Tim Gauthier Music, News Tags: , , , , , , ,

Over the past decade, Belgian DJ extraordinaire Coone (aka Koen Bauweraerts) has been building a name for himself in dance music circles as a global ambassador for hardstyle, the bass-heavy, high-BPM genre that’s managed to wallop its way over the Atlantic from Europe. And stateside clubbers have indeed taken notice, with LA-based arbiter of taste Steve Aoki signing Coone to his own Dim Mak label. Hardstyle, it seems, is set for worldwide take-off. Now here’s your chance to make your mark in 2014 by remixing Coone’s hard-storming anthem “150 BPM” from his latest album, Global Dedication. Enter this Play contest before February 3 for your chance to win a Novation Launchkey 49, a Novation Launchpad S, and an official release on Dim Mak Records.

Autoerotique continues to be a powerhouse for production, performance, and panache. Though his most recent release, “LZR BASS”, may qualify as an eighth step back in intensity from this year’s favorite, “Asphyxiation”, it can still only be described as an unrelenting electro house track. Full alarms blaring, no bass retreating, that’s Autoerotique’s style.

Safe to say that “Nasty” furthers his signature style and jocular attitude. The track plays host to a dominating vocal chorus, “I Like It Nasty”, which sounds rather like Siri (if we are picking from well-kown female robotic voices).

Battle of the Beats is a feature from Dancing Astronaut that pits two remixes against one another to determine which production made better use of the original. With remix packages growing in length and increasing in frequency, the number of reworked tracks has skyrocketed. After wading through the archives, we are opening it up to our readers to weigh in on whose rendition takes the proverbial cake.

Kaskade & Project 46 – Last Chance (Dirtyphonics remix)

France’s Dirtyphonics make good on their name with their remix of Kaskade and Project 46′s uplifting Atmosphere collab. Ratcheting the tune from 128 to 140 bpm, the quartet beef up the bassline while modifying the melody into something a tad more face-melting. Supporting the vocals but snipping away a few refrains, the remix instead highlights a rebuilt dub framework complete with deep dips and a heavy dose of reverb. Only the second Ultra outing for the Dim Mak regulars, the Dirtyphonics remix of “Last Chance” demonstrates their versatility.

Kaskade & Project 46 – Last Chance (Clockwork remix)

Debuted at EDC Las Vegas, Clockwork‘s remix of the collab wastes no time getting to the punchline. An electro take on the euphoric tune, the track utilizes the pounding tribal-esque percussion popularized at festival grounds around the world this summer. Structured as a back and forth between vocal and vertigo-inducing builds, the tune also engages in a bit of piano chord play that allows the original’s plucky bridge to peek through. Spanning several genres while consistently hitting the crowd-appeal note, Clockwork’s rework has celebrated its success with a spot on the Beatport Top 100.
