So, I was listening to Greg Cerrone’s WoaWoa BeatPort chart this morning while preparing my first cup of coffee for the day, and I actually had to put the coffee down and bust a move in the middle of my kitchen. I’m not even kidding. It’s a rare sight to see a sleepy headed, coffee deprived person dance their ass off in their pajamas at six in the morning. BUT THIS CHART IS THAT GOOD, Y’ALL. It got me amped. In support of his very recent release of “WoaWoa”, Greg Cerrone has given us a BeatPort chart that is overflowing with hyperactive tracks guaranteed to make your boring work/school day go by like nine thousand times faster. Featuring SHOWTEK, JOHN DAHLBACK, STEVE AOKI, ALESSO, ALBIN MEYERS and a handful of brilliantly chosen other talented producers, Greg Cerrone’s WoaWoa BeatPort chart is basically the equivalent of an adrenaline shot to your face. Go get it. Seriously.

Teaser Time: The Partysquad & The Death Set ft. Diplo – P.O.V. 2.0

3543 3543 Nikki

POV2.0 artworkTake 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.

Garmiani comes from a versatile background, production-wise. This man puts all his influences into one big blender and out comes his definition of dance music. You can hear it in “Dance Motherfucker” with the saxophone, the baile funk influences and the “Dance Motherfucker” voice sample, curtesy of Garmiani himself. Take that and add the epic chord play and big vocals combined with the groovy and huge drop of “Behind You (Rumble)”, and you have “Rumble”, a solid mini EP.
 
Rumble EP is Garmiani’s debut on Dim Mak Records.

Artist Spotlight: Azari & III ‘Hungry for the Power’

844 463 Tim Gauthier

Groovy basslines, feel-good rhythms, and dark yet hooky vocals, three signature elements you can certainly count on house music masters Azari & III to integrate into every one of their hypnotic tracks. The Toronto based quartet takes us on a ride back in time and drops us off during the classic Chicago house era where chill synth textures and syncopated overtones ruled the scene. Azari & III fuse classic house revivalism with modern interpretation. Their featured track, “Hungry for the Power (Jamie Jones Ridge Remix)” released on Dim Mak Records, highlights their back to the future type sound.

Azari & III have the power to captivate you with their upbeat dance moves and expressive stage presence. The music video for “Hungry for the Power” is a compilation of live performance footage from the Sonar North American tour and the 2013 Dim Mak Records showcase in Austin, Texas. The soulful house collective command the stage as Dinamo Azari and Alixander III handle the live electronics while Starving Yet Full and Fritz Helder take charge of the vocals.

In October of 2012, the Canadian house music group released their self titled album Azari & III on Dim Mak Records, which features “Hungry for the Power”. Dim Mak founder, Steve Aoki boasts “[Azari & III] bring up sounds from the past, but it’s what I think the future sounds like. And Azari & III are beyond any trends, which makes this one of the best albums of our generation. They also recently released an EP with their latest single “Lost in Time”, also released on Dim Mak Records in April 2013.” Both are available for purchase on iTunes.

Azari & III will be touring the states in late May/early June with shows in Hollywood, San Francisco, New York, and Philadelphia.

Official Video: Steve Aoki & Angger Dimas ft. My Name is Kay – Singularity

840 451 Tim Gauthier

Evolve. Transcend. Prepare. The future is near, and from the looks of it in Steve Aoki and Angger Dimas’ video for “Singularity” ft My Name is Kay, it’s going to be a bumpy ride. In this voyeuristic video, Steve is at the merciless hands of mad scientist My Name is Kay and her henchman as they turn Steve into a lab rat cyborg with major rager issues, all while the brilliant Ray Kurzweil narrates what the future of mankind will look like. Part science fiction, part futurist theory, the video for the chilling track “Singularity” begs one question: are you prepared for the Neon Future?

When Steve Aoki teamed up with Angger Dimas and My Name Is Kay, the result was the totally electrifying underground hit “Singularity”. Now we’re back with the “Singularity” remixes provided by Tim Mason, Topher Jones, and Oliver Twizt. The new remixes improve on the already flawless design of a track that was spellbinding all on its own.

Some of the biggest tracks on Dim Mak have been the result of collaborations while on tour including Phat Brahms, Madness, and No Beef. Felix Cartal & Clockwork are keeping the tradition alive with their latest release, “The Fire.”

A year ago, the duo found themselves collaborating on the Different Faces Tour which resulted in the creation of “The Fire”. After perfecting the track the guys then shipped it off to Madame Buttons who tied it together with her feverish vocals.

The production brings out the best of Felix Cartal and Clockwork, combining their talents to produce the ultimate dance track. Just in time for Summer, “The Fire” will be sure to heat up any room with its big house sound and catchy lyrics.
