SHADY x DIM MAK x THE WELL LA x FAVILA

900 600 Tim Gauthier

This past Saturday, Dim Mak and The Well LA hosted the Shady Pool Party up in the beautiful hills of Hollywood (oh soooo cool). The event hosted LA’s hippest party goers, along with some the industry’s most familiar faces. We’d like to thank Red Bull for providing energy, The Cobra Snake and Rony’s Photo Booth for supporting the event, and the beautiful Saturday afternoon that we were blessed with!

Take a look at some of the photos from Neil Favila / www.neilfavila.com.

Atari Teenage Riot Goes for the Lulz With Anonymous

849 392 Tim Gauthier

… To begin with, Alec Empire has a history with Sony — he’d sued them for copyright infringement after another song was included in a Sony ad without permission, and he settled, still feeling ripped off. Part of his dissatisfaction was hearing his music in a commercial at all.

Now Sony was back in Empire’s life — and asking this time. Empire knew at once what he wanted to do.

“I was actually on the phone and had to slow down my pulse and breathe… so the excitement wouldn’t be audible in my voice.”

Life on the Road (through my tour rider)

710 150 Dim Mak

My rider is now public information and seems to be the talk on my Twitter timeline so I’ll break down some of the more juicier bits of it since people are asking.
I travel with a small crew. Usually I am with my road manager, videographer and now sometimes a photographer as well so at any given show I am with 2 to 3 other people that I have to take care of.

Dim Mak x Neil Favila x EDC

900 600 Dim Mak

Originally, I hadn’t planned on attending EDC – but a few days before the festival, my buddy Ryan gave me a proper pep-talk and convinced me to go, further telling me that “I wouldn’t be coming correct, If I didn’t attend”. It was decided, I was all-in for a bender of a weekend (which undoubtedly laid ahead). I reached out to my buddy Keith (Autoerotique), and sorted out credentials, so that I could bring my camera in without hassle. I’ve photographed numerous shows, gigs, festivals, etc…, but I’ve never been to / shot EDC. Naturally, I wanted to do something different with my photographs. A majority of the EDC photos that surface are typically edited in a similar manner, and shot from 1 or 2 perspectives: on stage (behind the dj) or from the crowd (facing the dj). In an effort to mix things up a bit, I decided to shoot the entire festival with my vintage 35mm film camera, while focusing on everything but the dj’s – more of a documentary approach.

710 150 Tim Gauthier

Last year I was contacted online by some Anonymous activists regarding the Atari Teenage Riot song “Black Flags”. We collaborated on a viral video project that became a document of activism around the globe from the past six months. People sent in material from student protests in Chile, the Occupy movement, Anonymous and activists in Japan demonstrating against Tepco, the corporation responsible for the nuclear disaster in Fukushima.
