“NOTHING is something you will not like, something you will not understand, it’s simply nothing, as are we all.” – New Ivory
If I had a dollar for all the things I know about the mysterious trio NEW IVORY, I’d be one poor mother watch-yo-mouth! However, if I had a dollar for all the ways I love them, I’d be a mega bajillionaire, and as of today, my riches would increase tenfold because the “Nothing EP” is finally here! Four tracks of grinding, writhing, indie rock that reminds me of the early 90s, but with far more heart and better style. “Nothing EP” is brimming with heavy chords and dynamic vocals, high energy upswings and raw riffs. NEW IVORY is well versed in making music that will ensure their place on the throne of musical geniuses for years to come; this has never been more apparent than it is with the release of “Nothing EP”, on now Dim Mak Records.

Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo, alias The Bloody Beetroots has always been an anomaly amidst the cocooned trends and coddled pedigrees of dance music. After fits and starts in Italian garage-punk bands, Rifo launched The Bloody Beetroots in 2007 and over the next few years, he would win the support of electro house heavyweights Etienne de Crecy and Alex Gopher in Europe and Dim Mak’s Steve Aoki stateside. On Rifo’s watch, anything’s not only possible – but from the sheer vastness of sounds and media that have materialized – probable as well. From the start Mr. Bloody Beetroot has been capable of seamlessly crossing genres, diving into everything from new wave to the primal screams of hardcore punk.
His most recent collaborations include studio sessions with Youth and remixing Killing Joke, an opportunity very few are entitled to. After working closely with Dennis Lyxen from The Refused on the single smash club record “Church of Noise,” Rifo developed an online community and cult following that embraces the freedom of art, speech and chaos – www.therealchurchofnoise.com. From one-man studio production to full live band shows with The Bloody Beetroots Live and DJ show touring as The Bloody Beetroots DJ set, Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo is a pioneer, reinventing the landscape of electronic music. Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo is currently touring as The Bloody Beetroots LIVE – See below for upcoming tour dates!
Following the stand out success of their mammoth North American ‘Irreverence Tour’,Dirtyphonics return with a brand new, supped up package of their debut ‘Irreverence’ LP available only in Europe, UK, Australia, New Zealand. Out now on Steve Aoki’s imprint Dim Mak Records, ‘Irreverence’ is the French electronic dance music quartet’s statement of intent and they fully intend on leaving their mark. Merging heavy bass music, drum n’ bass, dubstep and electro with grimy club energy, supported by collaborations from the likes of Steve Aoki, Modestep, Liela Moss (vocalist of The Duke Spirit) and Foreign Beggars, the group—Charly, Thomas, Pho and Pitchin – can’t be pinned down.
It may be July already, but summer is far from over! To drive this point home, take a listen to NEZZO & Summer School’s “Shadows ft. RAS“ (Chris James Remix). While the original track is a bit darker and dancier, this remix takes on a fresh and happier perspective, making it impossible to not feel free and like maybe you should do some cartwheels. This Chris James remix would fit in at a poolside BBQ just as well as it would make the floor shake on a dance floor; but no matter where you listen to it, you wont be able to keep a smile off of your face! I triple dog dare you to try and act unimpressed with this gorgeous anthem, brought to you by NEZZO, Summer School, RAS, Chris James, and Dim Mak Records.

CODER Picks of the Week: Clinton VanSciver, Kaskade, Jay-Z and More…
Twenty-one-year-old producer/songwriter and Californian Clinton VanSciver calls his summer cocktail of melodies, keys and bass chunk “dirty pop.” We hear the supposed filth – those smudges of Skrillex synth and occasional bursts of bass – but VanSciver‘s music is much more. It’s a perfect union of West Coast house, glistening trance, blue-eyed soul and post-brostep savvy, all in under-five-minute, hummable bursts. This cut, the title track off his debut EP for Steve Aoki‘s Dim Mak, feels simple and effortless, which hopefully means that this young gun has a lot more where it came from. –Kerri
