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!

New music from our good friend Fashen – “So Complete”

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.

Atari Teenage Riot Takes Hold of NYC — A Recap By MTV Hive

April 23, 2012 Tim Gauthier Blog Tags: , , ,

If you ever need a heightened sense of our dystopian present, attend an Atari Teenage Riot show. Certainly the long-running German trio — now consisting of Alec Empire, Nic Endo and Rowdy Superstar — has had progress in its sights for a long time. The group began in Berlin in 1992 as a proactive response against neo-Nazism in Germany and has been fighting the good fight through techno-juiced hardcore (and strobe lights!) off and on for two decades. (The band took a decade-long hiatus in 2001 after the death of founding member Carl Crack before returning last year.) But no length of fandom or YouTube-by-proxies is quite like being in Atari Teenage Riot‘s present presence: through hyperreal energy and palpable political resolve, the group acts as cheerleaders for resistance, and the constant indictments of skewed global politics are actually transformative. We’re living in a time of tumult, but ATR’s imagining a better future, if we want it. The crux of their music, battering, insistent, and of the rabble, is just a reminder that along the path there, chaos is tantamount. And fun.
