#15 Clockwork, feat. Wynter Gordon – “Surge” (Dim Mak)
For all EDM’s pop aspirations, it rarely nails that elusive crossover as perfectly as this extended serotonin rush of a song, which floods your brain just as forcefully whether you hear it in a field full of wide-eyed first-time ravers or waiting in line at the grocery store.
Dim Mak welcomes Los Angeles producer Clinton VanSciver to its iconic roster! In this video—set to Clinton VanSciver‘s original track “Finding Other Doors” feat. Tyler Demorest—we see the newest member of the Dim Mak family visiting our headquarters for his official initiation. And what better way to celebrate than shots. Lots and lots of shots!
As his first official release on Dim Mak, Clinton VanSciver recently unleashed the “Indie Anna Jones” EP. Within the first week of its release, the 4-track EP hit Top 10 in the dubstep, progressive house, and glitch-hop genres and #11 in the electro house category on Beatport. The lead single “Indie Anna Jones” has garnered support from countless artists, including Dim Mak head honcho Steve Aoki, Armin van Buuren, Thomas Gold, and more, and it instantly rocketed to the #5 spot on The Hype Machine.
Music is universal. It transcends. It has the ability to transport the listener to another world, another time, displacing any worries he or she may have. There’s nothing like a track that delivers a powerful element of nostalgia.
Felix Cartal’s new single, “Young Love”, taken from his upcoming Past Present Felix EP, embodies the season that often evokes such memories …summer. With a sun-drenched beat, chilling vocals provided by Koko LaRoo, lyrics of youthfulness and the infectious energy that we’ve come to expect from Felix, “Young Love” is a melodious song with enough zest to amp up even the most discerning of music lovers. It’s classic, it’s fresh, it feels the way young love should…it’s everything we love about Felix’s flawless resonance.
Our latest addition to the Dim Mak powerhouse roster, Botnek are the future. Hand picked by Steve Aoki and Autoerotique as the next big thing to watch out for, we cant wait to show you ‘Through the Night’ – a guaranteed festival staple this year. After massive remixes for Porter Robinson and Mat Zo (‘Easy’) and supports from a who’s who in the world of dance music, we’re sure you’ll agree Botnek is ready for prime time.
It’s always a great day in the music world when you stumble upon someone who has a sound unlike anything else that’s being put into the airwaves. This is definitely the case with Jus Jack and Oza with their release of “EP”. With a sound that is described as having the unique flair of NYC nightlife, Jus Jack, teaming up with Rome-based producer Oza, has brought his fluid and euphoric music to a whole new level on “EP”, out today on Dim Mak Records. The EP features the tracks “Beauty and the Beast” and “Vortex”, both of which showcase two different sounds executed flawlessly. This duo is bound for greatness in the world of dance, and what a wonderful world it is.
Yolanda Be Cool is about to blow your summer into smithereens with the release of “Ladies and Mentalmen”, a 19 track album that shows you what it’s like to really get down be mental with bonafide rhythmic genius. From minute one, with the track “Change (ft Nola Darling)”, the bass gets to knockin’ like the police in the middle of the night, and the remaining tracks get increasingly sexier and bangin from there. Three of the tracks are EXCLUSIVE to Dim Mak Records, including “Sweat Naked”, “All That She Wants”(which features SYF & Fritz Helder from Azari & III providing the vocals on this pounding track), and “Cool Like” (featuring Fatlip)”. Head over to iTunes and get your lesson in cool from Yolanda Be Cool and Dim Mak Records.

“Since I wear nail polish, which is not normal … people bother me about it,”says band member Malcolm Brickhouse, who hails from the Flatbush neighborhood of Brooklyn, N.Y. “At times it offends me, at times it doesn’t. So I just write songs about it.”
Jarad Dawkins, of Brooklyn’s Bed-Stuy neighborhood, who has been playing with Brickhouse since the two were just 5 years old, says he’s writing a book about people “who are being bullied in school.” His characters find wealth and fame after forming a band, while those who judged them “have become homeless.”
“It’s based on a true story,” Dawkins explains in the video.
Despite the teasing at school, these two are quickly gaining the fame (though perhaps not the cash) envisioned in Dawkins’ book.

Angger Dimas has somehow managed to master what it takes to produce hits that get crowds of thousands to rage like there’s no tomorrow, and the release of his three track EP “Don’t Look Back in Angger” is sure to propel him onward and upward! Three tracks are all it takes for Angger to show his diversity, unique sound, and immense talent; ranging from super thumping bass, to high upbeat tempos, and pure electric enchantment, “Don’t Look Back in Angger EP” is a powerful display of the unyielding talent of this Indonesian prodigy.

Take a dash of funk, a spoonful of electro, two cups of dub, and pound of dance. Mix it all together. Chill it out. Sprinkle with Diplo. Serves a billion. Now, prepare yourself for the tasty and groundbreaking release of “P.O.V 2.0”, the follow up release of the original “P.O.V” by The Death Set. With “P.O.V 2.0”, a mastermind reworking has been produced by Diplo and The Partysquad, and it is just a whole new level of gritty/sexy/delicious fun. Described as “a punk, electro banger”, this track has something that will appeal to basically anyone who enjoys good music in all its various incarnations. Put together so flawlessly, “P.O.V. 2.0” is a work of art that will make you dust off your mirror and brush up on your twerkin’ skills, or (in my case) just dance like a total maniac because when music is this good, who cares about dance moves. Plug in, turn it up, and get down on this anthem of epic proportions.
Dim Mak’s newest signee, Clinton VanSciver, has made his first major debut in the dance music scene with his Indie Anna Jones EP, released on Dim Mak Records just two days ago.

Get your hands on this fresh anthem here on Beatport and be prepared to sing your heart out to this lyrically driven dance tune!
