Dim Mak x #blu eCigs x #ElectricLounge x Austin, TX

March 25, 2013 Tim Gauthier Lifestyle, Music Tags: , , , , , ,

For one week out of the year, all eyes are on the Lone Star state as thousands of fans, bands, bloggers, vendors, and film geeks swarm the Texas state capital for SXSW.

This year, from March 14-16, a new venue with the electronic set in mind popped up on historic 6th street. Sponsored by blu eCigs, the Electric Lounge held free shows featuring some of today’s most popular and rising stars of the dance movement; so naturally, there were some incredible Dim Mak Records artists included in the lineup. We all know it’s not a party until it’s a Dim Mak party, and SXSW attendees learned that lesson first hand. Featured at the Electric Lounge were DMR artists Datsik, Keys N’ Krates, and Will Brennan. Playing to a packed, yet intimate crowd, the lounge was popping off like the buttons of a too-tight shirt on a too-round man.

Datsik did what he does the absolute best (see: blow minds) by playing tracks off of his newest EP, Cold Blooded(Firepower), as well as crowd favorites from the “Vitamin D” album.

The triple threat trio of Keys N’ Krates brought the house down with pumping vibrations, giving fans a taste of what’s to come in 2013 with “Treat Me Right”, the trios newest single that is placing on charts all across the board.

Will Brennan, riding the waves of his latest releases “RNR” and “Fall In Love” in celebration of the re-release of his album “Prodigal Son”, the hip hop/electro darling gave Electric Lounge a performance that dared the attendees to not throw their hands up and get down.

All in all, Dim Mak Records artists showed native Austinites and international visitors alike that the label features diverse artists who know how to please an equally diverse crowd. Thanks to everyone who supported our hard working artists at this years SXSW, and an extra special thanks to #blu eCigs and #ElectricLounge for shining their spotlight on Dim Mak Records.

Check out some of the madness that took place in the photobooth on Thursday. See the full set here.

A Night In Review: Flosstradamus @ Club Nokia

March 7, 2013 Tim Gauthier Lifestyle, Music Tags: , , , , ,


“Club Nokia was the epicenter of Trap music Friday night, with big-time performances from AraabMuzik and Flosstradamus. There were also other great opening sets by Congorock, gLAdiator, Noizfiend, Alex Bustamove, and Mature Content. The night was full of the hard hitting bass and sway inducing beats that have become synonymous with the Trap sound. Araabmuzik was first to kick off the night and he didn’t disappoint.

Araabmuzik is the type of DJ who is so solid, that you know you’re going to have a good time no matter what when you listen to his music live. One of the reasons for this sure thing is that Araabmuzik mixes live using a MPC and so everything you are hearing is coming live from his hands to the speakers and then straight to your ears. Because every drum kick and sample is mixed live, it makes for a different type of set, where the beats and rhythm are on showcase instead of any big name song drops.

He opened his set with one of his tracks “Never Have to Worry,” and immediately the crowd started to get into what was a great constant track-to-track dance party. Araabmuzik showed great variety throughout the whole set, starting with slow deep bass only to speed up the tempo and then drop right back into a monster bass drop. Araab danced the night away while mixing but he never took his hands off the table and you could tell he enjoyed performing just as much as the audience enjoyed listening.  Towards the end of his set he introduced some noticeable tracks like Nero’s “Promises,” and Biz Markie’s “Let Me Clear My Throat.” All-in-all Araabmuzik’s set was a good mix of trap and other quicker electro beats.

Next up on the deck was headliner Flosstradamus. The DJ-duo is known for their hard hitting trap sets and that is exactly what they delivered. It was both a classic and unique set as the DJS dropped popular Trap tracks as well as some remixes that were unexpected. They opened up with Lana Del Rey’s “Videogames” and then mixed right into “Bugatti” by Ace Hood. Things got especially turned up when they dropped a trap remix of “Face Down, Ass Up” by Meek Mill and then launched into “What’s Your Fantasy” by Ludacris. In fact, Flosstradamus threw the beat down so hard during a mix of a new song with DJ Slink that the power actually blew out for a minute.

After the technical difficulty the duo launched back seamlessly into their set and hyped up the crowd with a remix of “Jah No Partial” by Major Lazer featuring Flux Pavillion. The rest of the set was a bevy of trap classics from Rick Ross, Waka Flacka, and Chief Keef to name a few. The highlight of the night was definitely when they dropped RL Grimes remix of “Satisfaction” by Benni Benassi and then spun right into a mix of Kanye West’s “Mercy,” and the classic techno song “Sandstrom,” by Darude.

Flosstradamus kept spinning through the night as they disappeared behind the fog that was being shot out in front of the DJ booth. When the lights hit the fog, it made them look even more awesome, as if they were illuminated in a cloudy rainbow of epic-ness.

It was a great night for trap music and EDM fans, and the crowd at Club Nokia seemed to be pleased, as they stayed through the night and seemed to dance forever.”  – Jenna Browning

#DimMakDIY – Featuring Lacy (Dirtyphonics Edition)

February 26, 2013 Tim Gauthier Fashion Tags: , , , , , , , ,


Its not too uncommon to see women shaving their heads now a days. Natalie Portman rocked it, So did Amber Rose, and even with her baby bump she still looks bomb. It can be considered a bold statement and often prominently displays confidence. I mean yeah, you might end up going crazy and try to stab people with an umbrella but unless you’re like that you should be fine. Anyways, our girlfriend Lacy is one of these women, and if you’ve spotted her at any of our events, you can already tell she brings the party and turns hairy heads. She was such a sweetheart and asked that I would photograph her going all out no clipper guard for what turned out to be a great evening of shooting some awesome photos. After all the the hair was gone (off her head and all over the floor and sink), and still excited to keep cutting, she turned the scissors on one of our new Dirtyphonics tees and with a little DIY, went custom for the night. We strongly encourage this behavior so show us your best DIY custom Dim Mak merch!

What happens in Vegas, ends up all over the internet and Vegas is no longer safe, which works out great as it served for a perfect location to have ourselves a little party. We teamed up with Joyrich for a cake filled celebration at The Act Nightclub in Las Vegas, where we showed off some of our new Dim Mak x Joyrich collab “Let Them Eat Cake” merch.

A Night In Review: Dan Sena + Trapaholics @ Dim Mak Studios

February 9, 2013 Tim Gauthier Lifestyle, News Tags: ,

If you didn’t have a chance to make it out to Dim Mak Studios this past Tuesday then you’re in for a special treat. We had one of our writers, Jenna Browning cover the night to remind you all of what you missed out on. You can also check out upcoming events at Dim Mak Studios here. Enjoy!


“Tuesday nights at Dim Mak Studios are always a special time, not only because of the artists that grace the stage but also because of the people who fill the club. The crowd that comes to Tuesday nights just likes to get down, and that’s exactly what they did at Dan Sena’s EP Release Party featuring Trap-A-Holics.

Man-of-the-hour, Mr. Dan Sena himself was first to kick things off in the main room. His set featured a little bit of everything from hard hitting dub step bass to danceable drum kicks that showcased some great


vocal samples. Sena hit you right in the heart with his bass drops but showed a lot of restraint as well when he would pull back the beat and let the samples speak for themselves. Everybody is doing dub step these days, but to have a consistent melody throughout the song is a hard skill to master, and Sena did it wondrously. A highlight was definitely his dropping A-Trak’s “Like A Dance Floor” as well as when he slowed down the beat to “All The Way Turned Up.” Sena ended his set right with “Hold On” By Monsta which had the club grooving.

Next up on the decks was DJ Slink who brought the bass level even higher when he laid down his Trap mix. Slink did a good job of turning classic songs into his own like Pharrell’s “Everybody Nose,” where he turned a familiar chorus line into a robotic style voice that definitely had a unique stamp on it. He played other popular classics as well like Dead Prez’s “Hip Hop,” which had the tables shaking with the earth quaking bass. He ended his set with a performance from rapper Whisky Pete who rapped live over Slinks beats until he threw down his final jam “Shook Pt II,” which is always a solid classic.

After Slink’s set ended and you thought the bass went up as high as it could, Trapaholics took the stage in a Fatal Crew T-shirt and cranked it up even higher. The set was perfect for both old and new trap fans alike, as Trapaholics’s song selection was like a magical journey through the genre. He paid homage to Waka Flocka, Rick Ross, Three 6 Mafia and pretty much everyone else who ever had anything to do with making Trap popular. He played all the classics from Trinidad James’s “All Gold Everything,” to “Trap House” by Gucci Mane, to “Respect Me,” by Rick Ross. He threw down bass that got you to bob your head in the dirtiest of ways with a stank grin on your face while you moved your feet almost unconsciously. This wasn’t your normal type of bass; it was some heavy hitting deepness that welled up in your throat.

All in all, it was a night of epic bass in all its glorious forms. Everyone who stuck around to catch all the sets definitely danced the night away to hard-hitting beats and not to mention the sick visual cubes that were video-mixed live by the masters behind the Dim Mak Studios sound booth. ” – Jenna Browning

PhatBrahmsWhitetee1“Phat Brahms” has traveled a long way since its initial creation in 2012.

VIBE sits down with Infected Mushroom

January 20, 2013 Tim Gauthier Lifestyle Tags: , , , ,


Since hooking up in 1997, Israeli psytrance duo Infected Mushroom has used elements of Goa, trance, industrial, and rock in their music. Their latest EP, Friends On Mushrooms Vol.1, is no different. We checked in on Erez “Eisen” and Amit “Duvdev” Duvdevani to talk reggae, tacos, psilocybin, Celine Dion and Diplo.

VIBE: You’ve expanded your sonic palette on this EP, adding a bit of electro, moombahton, reggae & dub to your signature psy/trance sound.
Infected Mushroom: The genres you mentioned are really taking hold in many markets around the world – we feel like our take on these types of music is very unique, but it’s not our goal to become an electro producer, or a moombahton producer, etc. It’s our only desire to make people dance, and to continue trying new things.

VIBE: Since you’re trying out reggae, any thoughts on collaborating with Snoop Lion or Diplo who just flipped from Hip Hop to reggae?
Infected Mushroom: We’d love to collaborate. Diplo is awesome – we really dig him.

VIBE: You’ve worked with some big names in rock – Ray Manzarek (The Doors), Perry Farrell (Jane’s Addiction), and Jonathan Davis (Korn). Are there any other rock stars you have on tap?
Infected Mushroom: Les Claypool would be super nutty! Dare I say, Celine Dion?

Controlling Sound With Your Face (And Vice Versa)

January 5, 2013 Tim Gauthier Lifestyle, Music, Video Tags: , , ,

Daito Manabe uses electrical impulses as an artistic medium, creating music through reactions of the human nervous and muscular systems.

“Can you smile without emotion?”

That’s what Daito Manabe asks in the video above. It’s the sort of question many of his digital art projects begin with, leading him to experiment with myoelectric sensors to turn people’s faces into human drum machine. A similar endeavor recently saw him visualizing FaltyDL’s music using jerky, electrified movements of the human body.

Taking the role of programmer, designer, DJ, VJ, and composer on each of his projects, Manabe is able to realize scenarios that change our perception of how our bodies interact with technology. Whereas most electronic musicians control sound with their hands, Manabe uses the electrical impulses of his facial muscles. Most of us just walk in sneakers, but Manabe fitted various pairs of Nikes with sensors that trigger and manipulate sound. DJs have long dreamed of having a third arm to mix and scratch with, and Manabe has already traversed this possibility.

While a lot of digital art prides itself on seamlessness, hiding the wire and code guts of what makes each piece tick, Manabe’s work embraces the functional aesthetic of these tools, focusing his creative energy on conveying a thought-provoking performance. Sitting on stage and altering sound with various facial expressions has this effect without fail.

You can check out Manabe and Perfume choreographer MIKIKO’s projection-mapped video for Nosaj Thing’s “Eclipse/Blue” below. Below that, see some stills from Manabe’s various projects.

Recap: Throwback Tuesday- Notorious B! Day

October 22, 2012 Tim Gauthier Lifestyle Tags: , , , ,

This past Tuesday on October 16 the Dim Mak family and friends came together to celebrate our Marketing Director, Bryan “B!” Linares’s birthday. We wanted to bring back the good ol’ Cinespace days we all remembered so fondly in honor of his special day. DMS was almost a mirror image to Cinespace that night – which brought you some of the newest talent every Tuesday including artists such as Lady GaGa, DJ AM, Justice, Kanye West and others.

We brought back the Hollywood Blvd. entrance, replicating the old days to help bring a more intimate setting to the club (which we’ve decided to bring back every Tuesday from now on.) Dan Oh, Them Jeans, and Pase Rock took the stage with old school hits that you wouldn’t hear in clubs today including throwback hip hop, electro, and indie. If i remember correctly I definitely heard old tracks from Mr.Oizo in the mix, who took the stage a few times at Cinespace.

Last but not least, we didn’t let B! get away with out our infamous birthday caking, to show how much we all appreciate him. I mean what’s a birthday with out a face full of cake, right? LOL. Overall Tuesday was a great time that felt more like a house party more anything with great music, friends, and lots of drinks. Check out our album on our Facebook from the night in case you don’t remember much or didn’t make it out to this night of nostalgia.

We’d like to thank everyone that came out to the Dim Mak Stage at the 5th Annual Sunset Strip Music Festival two weeks ago. If you didn’t get the chance to make it out here is a wrap up of what went down on that glorious Saturday night.

We had our very own Dim Mak stage at the Roxy, featuring sets by some of our favorites including Clockwork, PeaceTreaty, Yung Skeeter and Bones. Along with performances on our stage, Steve Aoki’s headlining set was full of surprises including popping bottles with Lil Jon, girls crowd rafting, and special guest appearances by Travis Barker, Will.I.Am, and Miss Palmer. If that wasn’t enough Steve ended the show by diving into a 2,000 lb cake, dedicated to his 1 million fans on Facebook. We understand this madness sounds too good to be true, so here are a few photos of the madness and we also made sure to post all the pictures of the event on our official Facebook page for all you non-believers at home.
