Bot is of the future. Half man, half-machine; fully Italian. Exiled in West London, locked in the studio since departing legendary duo Crookers, Bot (his creators named him Andrea Fratangelo) has disassembled any expectations and rebuilt his sound for 2018. Futuristic techno and unorthodox club rhythms are welded with hip hop influences, and a nod to the sounds and sprit of classic house. What we have here folks, is the new tomorrow.

SonicC, the young prodigy behind the mind bending “Stickin” is all grown up now. “Hades” takes you on a journey into a devilish banger showcasing his trademark intense buildups and drops. “Pulse” continues the descent into the underworld with an evil bassline and huge buildups that only leave you wanting more. “Androids on Acid” wraps up the EP with a taste of old school house and a drop that can not be ignored.

Remember the days when dance music was a little chill, a little vibey, a little relaxed? The kind of music that sounded perfect coming from your computer speakers as you stayed up late to do your homework, and just as perfect coming from your car speakers while you cruised your city at dusk? It could be played loud, but wasn’t so nuts that your mom would inform you that you’d be deaf by thirty if you didn’t turn that racket down. There’s a fine line between noise for the sake of noise and perfection at its purest, and at Dim Mak Records, we strive to bring you the latter.

That’s exactly the case with the release of “The Wanderer”, brought to your ear holes by Romanthony vs. Kevin McKay. A sound harking back to the early days of dance, but with modern twists and turns that are sure to get you hella amped, “The Wanderer” is a subtle yet undeniably catchy tune that comes packing heat. While the original track is more laid back, the remixes grow increasingly more intense as you go through the EP, and each version of the song showcases a unique turn on an already golden original sound. Turn up the volume, sit back and relax, and let the summer of 2013 roll in on the back of “The Wanderer”.

Teaser Video: Bot – Vamos / Go Down EP

814 450 Tim Gauthier

2012 hit a sad note for Crookers fans when the duo announced that Bot would be going his separate way while Phra carried the Crookers name as a solo venture, and we’ve been waiting ever since to hear something from Bot‘s solo studio sessions. And it looks like the wait is finally over; on April 9th, devoted fans will finally get a sampling of what sort of saucy sounds Bot can make on his own as he releases “Vamos / Go Down” on Dim Mak Records.

This is huge, y’all! Once you’ve heard this track, you’ll be totally salivating for more of what this Italian mega-machine can do. The sounds of “Vamos / Go Down” are completely unlike anything we’ve heard before; it’s like the dance gods took extra special care in forming a talent as refined, energetic, and absolutely unique as Bot’s. The teaser video below is reminiscent of the Saved By the Bell opening credits, but with thunderous beats and super charged layers blazing into your ears over psychedelic visuals. With a video like this, and a breathtaking producer like Bot, this release is going to be one for the history books.

811 466 Tim Gauthier

There is no such thing as ordinary in the world of Steve Aoki, especially when it comes time to interview Dim Mak Artists. This fact rings especially true for the 22nd episode of AOKI FILES Miami Edition where Steve talks to Felix Cartal and AutoErotique and tries to get a word in edgewise.

The two Canadian producers, who recently collaborated on the completely insane track “The Alarm”, discuss what it would be like if they did a country-wide tour together (it involves a small hatchback) and who deserves the credit for making the phenomenal “The Alarm” (Felix is pretty sure he deserves all the credit). Felix and Keith both drop some fresh-out-the-oven information about new tracks coming up as, well as upcoming collaborations with other huge names in the game. One thing is for sure, when these two mega-producers get together with an extremely excited Aoki, the outcome is sure to make you do some ball grabbing of your own.
