Beers and Bro-Dates

May 3, 2012 Tim Gauthier Blog, Lifestyle Tags: , , ,

This Saturday a small crew from the office made the adventurous journey into the Valley to do “normal” people things. For a fairly new transplant to LA this means a tribute to the weird and fairly often boring nights in the Midwest. We started our night by meeting up at the train station to catch the Metro, which happened to be a first for most of us. Then off to the glamorous Universal City Walk for dinner and some good wholesome fun. This turned out to mean a few, very large beers and some bowling. It doesn’t take long to realize the Midwest boys have an advantage in the fine art of throwing heavy things long distances. The night wrapped up with a, shall we say stereotypical meal at Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. Thanks to the Dim Mak locals for showing us a great night and lets hope there are more of these outings to come!

May 2, 2012 Tim Gauthier Blog, Music Tags: , ,

DJ Fashen has been one of the top club DJs in the US for at least the last ten years, but this is his first release of original music. He’s an absolute genius on the turntables, an incredible performer, and his energy and knowledge translates perfectly in this three song EP.The Phoenix native (he came up with Z-Trip) had already been ripping for years on commercial radio and in nightclubs all over the US before being hand picked by DJ AM for Deckstar, which propelled him into the upper echelon alongside AM, Jazzy Jeff and Steve Aoki. This landed him gigs playing for Kanye West, Snoop Dogg, 50-Cent, and the Kardashians, and as a Skam Artist DJ he continues to tour the world, somehow also finding time to hold down Dim Mak Sundays at Drai’s Hollywood with Thee Mike B.
