NEW EP & MASSIVE TOUR COMING FROM KEYS N KRATES!

August 8, 2014 Tim Gauthier Blog, Music, News Tags: , , , , , ,

After several months of patient waiting, fans of the three-piece live electronic sensation known as Keys N Krates are about to be rewarded by Every Nite, the fresh new EP from the Canadian musical masterminds. Still flying high off the success of their undeniably catchy hit “Dum Dee Dum,” Keys N Krates are ready to launch into the next phase of their journey with this 6 track offering, which aptly demonstrates their evolution as a band, as well as their loyalty to the unique fusion of hip-hop and electronic music that they’re known for. Set for release on September 23 on Dim Mak Records, Every Nite displays the seamless blend and complementary juxtaposition between the drums, keys, turntables, and live sampling that so clearly distinguishes Keys N Krates.

Ahead of the EP, Keys N Krates are presenting the first single “Are We Faded,” which is set for release August 26. About “Are We Faded,” Billboard says, “The new single, ‘Are We Faded,’ is dizzyingly sexy, pushing along at a slower tempo that’s ideal for sweaty, middle-of-the-dance-pit grooving. It’s carried by choppy female vocals that bounce around in tandem with the synths, vanishing every once in a while to let a low voice chime ‘f-f-faded.’

Keys N Krates have celebrated recent success with “Dum Dee Dum” (off their SOLOW EP) nearing the 100k downloads sold mark (99,659 as of July 30), and with the accompanying video amassing more than 2.2 million views on YouTube. Other recent achievements include the Tove Lo flip of “Habits” into “All The Time,” which has collected over 5 million Soundcloud plays, as well as the entirety of their acclaimed SOLOW EP, including “Treat Me Right,” which shot to #1 on Hype Machine, received instantaneous support from figureheads such as Diplo and Flosstradamus and was debuted by Annie Mac in the UK. They have also been featured on some of the biggest and best festival stages around the world including HARD in Los Angeles, Voodoo Festival in New Orleans, and Lollapalooza in Chicago, with USA Today singling them out as emerging artists to catch.

In celebration of the Every Nite EP, Keys N Krates are embarking on a massive fall tour, co-headlining with Gladiator and with support from Thugli, that will take them across the expanse of North America. Aside from their noteworthy talent as producers and studio musicians, Keys N Krates truly set themselves apart by their performances, where they bring their live electronic instrumentation to the stage together as a band. With stops in Los Angeles, Denver, Boston, Philadelphia, Phoenix, and countless more, Keys N Krates are canvassing the continent making sure no fan gets left behind.

Loudpvck & Gladiator‘s new track “Tony” is set for release on Ultra Music August 12, following Gladiator‘s collaboration with A-Trak, a remix of Foster the People’s “Best Friend.” Also Joining Keys N Krates on the tour are fellow Torontonians, Thugli. Loved by Diplo, A-Trak, Flosstradamus and Bauuer for their distinctive sound, described as a hybrid of dirty south rap combined with a love of melodic builds and heavy synth, Thugli will be releasing their debut EP this fall, and their remix of Diplo & GTA‘s track “Boy Oh Boy” features on Diplo‘s new album.

[Beatport News] Botnek’s ‘#SELFIE’ slam soars to #1

June 23, 2014 Tim Gauthier Music Tags: , , , , ,

Congratulations go out to Botnek, as his remix of The Chainsmokers#SELFIE” takes over the #1 position in our Beatport Top 100.

Less of a remix and more of a rip on the trending track that even made it’s way to American Idol, Botnek’s remix is playful in its reproach. Bless the New York-based Chainsmokers (aka Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall) for having the sense of humor to approve this track, as it’s climbed the top 100 to take over #1 in just over a week.

Gettin’ Spooky w/ Joe Ghost!

May 9, 2014 Tim Gauthier Interviews, Music Tags: , , , ,

Joe Ghost

We’ve had our eye on him for some time, and now he’s part of the Dim Mak family. Say hello to Joe Ghost! From his collection of popular mashups to a collaboration with Hardwell, Joe Ghost has been earning his way up the ladder one rung at a time. His Dim Mak track “LIBG”, or “Lose It Baby Go”, tears through tooth and nail with electro fury. We caught up with Joe to get the in depth scoop on him and how he ticks. Check it below.

Joe Ghost is getting ready to drop his new single “LIBG” on Dim Mak Records, available for download on May 6th.

[highlight style=”default”][highlighttext title=”To learn more about Joe Ghost and his ‘LIBG’ single, see our exclusive interview!” titlesize=”h6″ subtitle=””][/highlighttext][/highlight]
1.    Tell us a little about yourself and your music.

I was born in raised in Toronto Canada and got my first taste of the DJ culture when I was around 15 years old, after seeing a video of DJ Qbert at a DMC battle. I was instantly hooked, and for the next year I found any excuse I could to help out with chores around the house to earn enough money to buy two turntables and a mixer. I stumbled upon House/Dance music a few years later when I first heard “Groove in you” by Dave Armstrong. I remember being so captivated by the contrast between the emotional and energetic elements instilled in one song.

Fast forward, I then found myself wanting to be not only that person playing these amazing songs , but also the one creating them.

Joe Ghost music can be simply put as “loud+minimilistic” haha. I love creating music that combines both uplifting melodies that force a sense of emotion, and “drops” that are minimalistic, but create a wow factor. I feel that when these two elements are combined, it creates a four-minute package of energy that forces the listener go through various emotions so quickly. It’s a thrill that is hard to get through any other medium!

2.   Do you believe in the paranormal? Why yes or no.

It’s funny because I get asked that all the time. However “Ghost” is just a nickname that I’ve had since I was young because I am a shy quiet guy, always the quietest person in the room; it doesn’t reference anything paranormal. But to answer your question, there are times I believe in ghosts, especially after I watch a scary movie at night and need to navigate my way to my bed in the dark haha :)

3.   If you were a ghost would you rather be always invisible to people or always visible and why?

100% I would love to be always visible. I would scare the shit out of everyone all the time!

4.   If you ruled the world, who would you want to be your second-in-command and why?

My best #2 would be someone like Julius Ceaser, he had a lot of great traits that complement mine. He is known for never being defeated in a battle, this brings out my competitive side; for those who know me .. I HATE loosing.

5.   What upcoming material do you have coming up?

I really like to interact with my fan base by releasing bootlegs and mashups frequently, so you can expect a lot more of those throughout the year. Also, I have really focused on pushing out a lot more originals for 2014/2015 , so fans of my music can expect a lot more Joe Ghost music in the near future, with some surprising collaborations I can’t really talk about yet.

6.   Your track for Dim Mak is called “LIBG” or “Lose It Baby Go”. Where would be the last place you would want someone to play this song and why?

I am thinking of something witty and clever to say with this, but in a DJ world all that keeps coming to my head is that the last place I would want someone to play this is right before one of my sets at a show.

7.   When is the best time to listen to dance music and why?

Dance music is so amazing because there is so many different forms of it. Dance music plays an integral part in my day. I first wake up listening to deep house while I make my breakfast and get ready. Then as the day progresses I turn to Tech House vibes to keep me going , later on in the evening its all about big room tunes that get me energetic, and then right before I call it a night I turn back to some deep house to chill out.

8.   Would you rather play a gig in the middle of the Amazon, or in the middle of the Arctic, and why?

I recently played a festival in Canada called the BRRRRR Festival, this took place outside in the middle of the winter. Any Canadians know that this years winter could have been compared to the Arctic haha. It was a surreal experiance with the massive crowd fully bundled in their winter gear but raging still like it was a summer festival. I loved the atmosphere that was created with the big festival style production and harsh winter elements combined. Eventhough my fingertips froze I would 100% do it again.

9.   What is one song you could not do without in life?

Wow! that is such a hard question. I have so many go-to songs that I have had for years for different moments either happy or sad. I love music, so it would be like asking me to tell you which one of my family members I love the most.

Dum Dee Dum cracks A MILLI!

May 1, 2014 Tim Gauthier Music, News, Video Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

[two_third]Keys N Krates‘ “Dum Dee Dum” is one of those tunes that instantly gets stuck in your head, and with the official video passing the 1 million views mark, it is also getting stuck on your screens. Directed by Slave Labour, the video is a hilarious mockumentary that explores the Mennonite culture. In the video, the director visits various Mennonite communities and introduces members to current technology unbeknownst to them, including iPods, boom boxes, and more, all the while blasting “Dum Dee Dum.”

Off of last year’s SOLOW EP, “Dum Dee Dum” is also taking festival stages by storm this spring, with support from Skrillex, Carnage, Diplo, RL Grime, Flosstradamus and more. This week the single hit #16 on the US Dance Singles Sales Chart (as ranked by SoundScan), making it the only trap record aside from “Turn Down For What” in the top 20. “Dum Dee Dum” is showing no signs of slowing down.[/two_third][one_third_last]

WAIT, PAUSE! – #SELFIE with Scarlett Johansson?

March 27, 2014 Tim Gauthier Music, News Tags: , , , , ,

Nick Grimshaw from BBC Radio 1 apparently asked Scarlett Johansson…yes…THEE Hollywood A-lister model and actress Scarlett Johansson, to re-record the vocals to The Chainsmokers‘ hit #SELFIE. And. She. Did. It. Ironically, her voice is less screechy and annoying than the original making the vocals in the satirical song to be more bearable. I guess this is a testament to making it when you have Scarlett Johansson doing vocals for you.

Who wears cheetah? You do, Scarlett. You do.

[Beatport Secret Weapon] Borgore ft. Waka Flocka Flame & Paige – Wild Out (Ookay Remix)

February 12, 2014 Cubby Music, News Tags: , , , , , ,

All great masterminds have a secret weapon up their sleeve, so why shouldn’t you? Beatport named “Wild Out (Ookay Remix)” to their Secret Weapons chart for electro house, so all you kids can wild out in secret. Grab it now from the chart for just $1.99, not even one million dollars (pinky to lip). It doesn’t come with sharks with lasers attached to their frikken heads though… Then again, if the chart is secret weapons and they send it to everybody, is it really a secret anymore? Anyways, check out the full list below.

If you’ve been a fan of Dim Mak for awhile now, the name Kele Okereke probably rings a bell. If it doesn’t, the name Bloc Party definitely should. Kele is the frontman for award-winning British rock band Bloc Party who released their self-titled EP on Dim Mak back in 2004! Bloc Party also performed at our beloved #DimMakTuesdays at Cinespace and we’ll always consider them to be a special part of the Dim Mak family.

#1 on Hype Machine: Keys N Krates – All The Time (Tove Lo Flip)

Incase you didn’t hear, last night Keys N Krates were forced to cancel their live performance in Hollywood @ Avalon due to a low-life gaining access to their green room and stealing their laptops before they went on. KNK took to Facebook this morning to inform their fans of what happened and inadvertently announce their next single “Understand Why.” However, a little laptop debacle isn’t going to hold them back from doing what they love. This morning they leaped to that #1 spot on Hype Machine with their new track “All The Time (Tove Lo Flip)” which was premiered just a few days ago. Have a listen(above) and be sure to ‘favorite’ it to keep them at the top!

The Best Music Venues in Las Vegas

December 6, 2013 Music

Las Vegas has long been an important part of the entertainment business, as some of the world’s most iconic performers have showcased their talents here, including Elton John and Frank Sinatra. This influence is still prevalent as the city offers concerts halls as well as music venues within casino complexes, keeping up the variety when casinos can be accessed easily online at sites like www.mobilecasino.co.nz. When in Las Vegas, here are just a few examples of the best music venues.

The MGM Grand Casino is home of the Garden Arena. This music venue has been the site of musical performances by acts such as Bon Jovi and Backstreet Boys and is a large site, with almost 17,000 seats. The overall design of the venue was based on New York’s Madison Square Garden. Future acts performing here include Phish, Zac Brown Band and Stevie Wonder.

The Joint at the Hard Rock Casino is also a top music venue located in Las Vegas. The venue offers seating for 4,500 people as well as a state of the art sound system. The music played here is varied with legendary performances by Paul McCartney and Guns N’ Roses. Future performances here include Darius Rucker and 70’s rock bank, Kiss.

For those looking for jazz, then the Cabaret Jazz Theater is a must visit. Part of the large Smith Center located downtown; this venue offers terrific jazz performances. Storm Large & Le Bonheur are scheduled to perform here in November, with other future performers include Clint Holmes.
The Colosseum at Caesar’s Palace would be a fourth place to find the best music in Vegas. This venue offers future performances by Shania Twain and Rod Stewart. Given the notoriety Las Vegas has garnered for its music, it should be of little surprise that the city offers numerous concert halls to cater to anyone.

Bring You To Life Remix Contest – And the winner is…

January 8, 2014 Tim Gauthier Music, News Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

After much consideration of a whopping assortment of multi genres submissions, the winner of the Dancing Astronaut, Dim Mak & WAVO “Bring You To Life (Transcend)” remix competition has been awarded to REGOTON!

Regoton has utilized smart production, an irresistible Melbourne-Bounce lead and great variation that edged out the other contenders. However the competition was so fierce, we felt two other remixes were very close so we have awarded them our Staff Choice winners: Hallvard Vaaland Remix and Inscape Remix, both bringing two unique takes. Hallvard Vaaland creates high energy anthemic vibes that will impress progressive house fans and on the flip side, Inscape takes a direction opposite to many of the other submissions by demonstrating how chill & downtempo influences can be implemented in reworking a track into a wholly different vibe.

Congratulations & thanks for your entries!

Beatport Play hosts remix contest for Coone & Jim Ferren’s ‘150 BPM’

January 7, 2014 Tim Gauthier Music, News Tags: , , , , , , ,

Over the past decade, Belgian DJ extraordinaire Coone (aka Koen Bauweraerts) has been building a name for himself in dance music circles as a global ambassador for hardstyle, the bass-heavy, high-BPM genre that’s managed to wallop its way over the Atlantic from Europe. And stateside clubbers have indeed taken notice, with LA-based arbiter of taste Steve Aoki signing Coone to his own Dim Mak label. Hardstyle, it seems, is set for worldwide take-off. Now here’s your chance to make your mark in 2014 by remixing Coone’s hard-storming anthem “150 BPM” from his latest album, Global Dedication. Enter this Play contest before February 3 for your chance to win a Novation Launchkey 49, a Novation Launchpad S, and an official release on Dim Mak Records.

Autoerotique – NASTY

Autoerotique continues to be a powerhouse for production, performance, and panache. Though his most recent release, “LZR BASS”, may qualify as an eighth step back in intensity from this year’s favorite, “Asphyxiation”, it can still only be described as an unrelenting electro house track. Full alarms blaring, no bass retreating, that’s Autoerotique’s style.

Safe to say that “Nasty” furthers his signature style and jocular attitude. The track plays host to a dominating vocal chorus, “I Like It Nasty”, which sounds rather like Siri (if we are picking from well-kown female robotic voices).

[Preview] Yolanda Be Cool – All That She Wants (feat. SYF and Fritz Helder)

December 23, 2013 Tim Gauthier Music Tags: , , ,

Australian duo Yolanda Be Cool return with All That She Wants feat. vocalists SYF and Fritz Helder formerly of Azari & III – their first piece of work since the Canadian outfit recently disbanded.

This collaboration between four of the brightest minds in electronic music today resurrects the Ace Of Base ‘90s pop classic in a cool, brooding, chugging fashion. The two-part remix EP releasing on Dim Mak Records February 4 and February 18 respectively, includes the original version from Yolanda Be Cool and features remixes from a cast of rising producers including Human Life, Walker & Royce, Plastic Plates, Wordlife, and Go Freek.

Battle of the Beats: Dirtyphonics vs Clockwork – Last Chance (Remixes)

December 23, 2013 Tim Gauthier Music Tags: , ,

battle-of-the-beats-no-week

Battle of the Beats is a feature from Dancing Astronaut that pits two remixes against one another to determine which production made better use of the original. With remix packages growing in length and increasing in frequency, the number of reworked tracks has skyrocketed. After wading through the archives, we are opening it up to our readers to weigh in on whose rendition takes the proverbial cake.

[one_half]

Kaskade & Project 46 – Last Chance (Dirtyphonics remix)

France’s Dirtyphonics make good on their name with their remix of Kaskade and Project 46′s uplifting Atmosphere collab. Ratcheting the tune from 128 to 140 bpm, the quartet beef up the bassline while modifying the melody into something a tad more face-melting. Supporting the vocals but snipping away a few refrains, the remix instead highlights a rebuilt dub framework complete with deep dips and a heavy dose of reverb. Only the second Ultra outing for the Dim Mak regulars, the Dirtyphonics remix of “Last Chance” demonstrates their versatility.

[one_half_last]

Kaskade & Project 46 – Last Chance (Clockwork remix)

Debuted at EDC Las Vegas, Clockwork‘s remix of the collab wastes no time getting to the punchline. An electro take on the euphoric tune, the track utilizes the pounding tribal-esque percussion popularized at festival grounds around the world this summer. Structured as a back and forth between vocal and vertigo-inducing builds, the tune also engages in a bit of piano chord play that allows the original’s plucky bridge to peek through. Spanning several genres while consistently hitting the crowd-appeal note, Clockwork’s rework has celebrated its success with a spot on the Beatport Top 100.

So whose “Last Chance” do you give a second chance to?

A Future Soul Introduction from Kenna

December 19, 2013 Tim Gauthier Interviews, Music, News Tags: , ,

BESTFITMUSIC2
 

Now that we’ve just about finished getting excited about the new divergences, tangents and confluences that resulted in the new styles and genres of 2013, it’s time to start coining some new ones. Future soul might not mean much to us now, but it sounds pretty exciting. And who better to give us a personal introduction than Grammy nominee Kenna.

“Pink Matter” – Frank Ocean

I think this song was overshadowed by the many other records that Frank has put out. I think it resonated with me because it reminded me lyrically of the things in my head that I may or may not ever want people to find out. Some insane things go through it. Outside of that, like I told Frank, he could sing the phone book and we would listen.

[sr_video][/sr_video]

“I’m Into You” – Chet Faker

This dude has great tone. Not sure if this is “future soul” but it is soulful to me. I think we have a divergence in sound vs. genre. This is the type of record that bends the rules and this is the type of artist that leaves you wondering where his soul will lead us.

[sr_video][/sr_video]

“Treat Me Like Fire” – Lion Babe

Her name is Lion Babe. What man isn’t going to want to know what that sounds like. After you hear her though, you can feel her influences in the delivery of her melody, but the song is original. The video is raw and rad. Her name is Lion Babe, for the love of God.

[sr_video][/sr_video]

“Cold Nites” – How to Dress Well

A friend put me on to this. I think it just has a great deal of raw energy in it. The lyrics are bent towards the ethereal and allows you to morph it into your own life. The strength in it is its illusive quality – it’s just mesmerizing.

[sr_video][/sr_video]

“Love Is Still Alive” – Kenna

I’m biased on this one. Its one of my favorite songs because it is delimited. This song speaks of the dimensions in between communication and life. It challenges the sacred geometry of coming back from a death in love to find a resurrection.

[sr_video][/sr_video]

“Only When I Walk Away” – Justin Timberlake

This song is an evolution in Justin’s melodic journey. He challenged himself to meld worlds and bring angst to a beat with the R&B overtones. I don’t think production of this can get any better. The show version kills.

[sr_video][/sr_video]

Appetite suitably piqued? Check out Kenna’s new video for “Relations”, featuring Childish Gambino,here.

New Music Video | Scanners – Charmed Life

December 19, 2013 Nikki Music, Video Tags: , , ,

London-native alternative geniuses Scanners have unveiled the new music video for their track “Charmed Life” from their album Love Is Symmetry, released earlier this year on Dim Mak Records.

The haunting and unforgettable “Charmed Life” is a versatile track that perfectly sets the mood for a serene sunset car ride. Simple yet eerie, the “Charmed Life” video features a close-up shot of vocalist Sarah Daly shot through grainy and beautifully filtered cinematography. The video is sprinkled with scenic shots, images of the band performing live in a living room setting, and a whirlwind spin featuring each of the band members.

Scanners have been part of the Dim Mak family since 2006 with the release of their album Violence Is Golden. They have also released a number of projects on Dim Mak Records, including Submarine (2010) and their latest Love Is Symmetry (2013) along with several singles and remix pacakges.

Love Is Symmetry from Scanners is available now on Dim Mak:
