Austin Chapman; Being able to hear music for the first time.

August 21, 2012 Tim Gauthier Lifestyle, Music Tags: , , ,

According to Yahoo News, Austin Chapman, 23 year old filmmaker was born deaf and was never able to hear music in its full clarity through his old hearing aid. Earlier this month, Chapman switched hearing aids allowing him to hear music to its fullest potential and forever changing his life.

Chapman shared his experience about his recent visit to Dim Mak Studios for Penguin Prison‘s DJ set stating, “The bass was so heavy I felt it vibrating in my nose and lungs. It was such a rapturous experience, outmated only by the first time hearing music. I literally could not stop myself from dancing and thumping to the beat.”

Dim Mak is honored and would like to personally thank Austin for allowing us to be apart of his new found musical experience.

MTV on Tomorrowland Festival with Steve Aoki, Avicii, Felix Cartal and more!

From MTV.com:
While a late evening shower may have dampened the ground at the launch of Boom, Belgium’s Tomorrowland Festival, the magic of the day wasn’t hindered by it in the very least. If anything, the 60,000 fans in attendance Friday probably welcomed the cool down.

Banging sets by Joachim Garraud & Clockwork, coupled with the ecstatic raging of a few thousand fans, turned Steve Aoki’s tented Dim Mak stage into a sauna. Of course, when rapper Lil Jon walked out and “Welcomed all the ladies and gentlemen” to Tomorrowland, before launching into “Turbulence,” mayhem ensued. And speaking of raging – notable in Aoki’s set – festival goers were treated to a brand spanking new bomber of a collab with Knife Party. Fittingly, when we left Dim Mak for the day, Indonesian rising star Angger Dimas (who revealed to MTV News that a brand new Boys Will Be Boys track with Tiësto is coming soon) had just launched into “Internet Friends.”

July 17, 2012 Tim Gauthier Fashion, Lifestyle, Music Tags: , , , ,

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

July 11, 2012 Tim Gauthier Lifestyle, Music Tags: , , , ,

… 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.”

Read the full interview on wired.com here.

Life on the Road (through my tour rider)

June 21, 2012 Dim Mak Lifestyle Tags: , , , ,

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.
