“TAI IS AN INCREDIBLY TALENTED PRODUCER AND A BADASS DRIVER! HE IS A GOOD PERSON AND I WANTED THAT TO COME THROUGH IN THE PHOTOGRAPHS. I ALSO WANTED TO DRAW OUT AND CAPTURE A DARKER SIDE TO HIM THAT NOT MANY PEOPLE CAN SEE. HE IS SO CALM AND FRIENDLY BUT UNDERNEATH HE HAS A LOT OF EMOTION – ANGER, FRUSTRATION, DESIRE. THAT’S WHAT I WANTED TO FIND.” SIR BOB CORNELIUS RIFO

Teef runs wild and spazzes out in McDonalds when the Dub Step joint ‘Jaw Drop’ kicks in! Look out for the counter-grind, him slipping across the floor and landing arse-first on the ‘wet floor’ cone all before being chased out!
Jaw Drop is out November 13th as part of the Hollywood EP on Dim Mak Records, look out for that!
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.
