615 469 Tim Gauthier

Welcome to The Aoki Files. This is a new web series Steve Aoki is doing focusing on all the new Dim Mak artists and their releases. Every week he will interview different artists that have released a new record on Dim Mak Records.

Steve Aoki twerks it out at the Dim Mak Pool Party with Keys N Krates for episode #26 of Aoki Files *MIAMI EDITION*. There is nothing ordinary about this toronto-based-trio whose sound is just as unique as their music making process. Adam Tune, David Matisse, and Jr. Flo fill Steve in on the live jam that became their masterpiece new single, “Treat Me Right” released on Dim Mak Records.

KNK also explain their traditional band-like production process which gives that “live feel” to all their music and performances.

“Treat Me Right” hit number one on Hype Machine and charting on Beatport. Be sure to keep your ears open for their next EP coming out soon on Dim Mak Records.

Following the release of their REMIX ALBUM and razor-sharp performances at this year’s Ultra Music Fest and SXSW, AZARI & III is unleashing their final ‘Remix EP’ off their stellar “Azari & III” full length. The LOST IN TIME EP is out today, featuring the original version of “Lost In Time”, along with 2 celebrated remixes from Finnish house producer/DJ Jori Hulkkonen and Los Angeles techno/house duo VCO.

The original version is centered on lush house beats, and reels through rich percussion, all the while marrying with a gorgeous vox. Jori Hulkkonen delivers a different sonic depth; building with distorted, systemized thumps and gleaming synths.  Lastly, VCO gives the “Lost In Time” a solid workout, and the result is a pulsing throng of synths and splattered arpeggios.

Out Now: GTRONIC – Morpheus & Dufus

Belgian titan GTRONIC drops his first EP of 2013, ‘MORPHEUS & DUFUS’ with 2 new originals, remixes from the likes of MOONBOOTICA, DIRTY DISCO YOUTH, THE SNEEKERS, OSTBLOCKSCHLAMPEN and RUSTY WARRIORS, and a free bonus track “Moticon”. It’s all about crunchy sounds and pulsating baselines.

The first track is homage to the god of dreams, “Morpheus”. This musical demon brings you into a whole new dimension; a perfect balance between uplifting melodies and raw baselines. “Dufus” is a more techno-influenced, bass heavy tune. Its huge pounding drum-kicks accompanied with dirty sub-bass make it irresistible to stand still. And, lastly “Moticon” is an experimental piece of art where emotions collide with rough baselines.

How animals eat their food…

349 259 Tim Gauthier

The Earth is a precious rock covered in meat sacks (humans) hurtling through space at a seemingly unending spiral of universal epicness. But it’s not just us human skin bots! We share this gorgeous and strange planet with millions of gorgeous and strange creatures (and I don’t mean your relatives). As the saying goes, knowledge is power, and the more we know about the animals that help make up our ecosystem, the better we can learn how to coexist. Thankfully, the fellas at MisterEpicMann and Onkel Bernis Welt have graced us with two videos that demonstrate the various eating styles of some of our furry and feathered friends; this is like next level PBS Nova shit right here. After watching these videos, you’ll be able to go to your family reunion, full of people who think they are better than you, and demonstrate your extensive knowledge of how a kangaroo gets his grub on. You can take joy in saying “Take that, cousin Mark, with your fucking Doctorate’s! I can eat this salad like a goddamn rhino! Bet they didn’t teach you that at Stanford!” and then give him a sample of the Cheetah dining ritual. >Boom.
