America is considered the “melting pot” of the world, because we’re all like… crazy different from one another in at least fifty ways. However, one thing that I think we can all agree on is that STEVE AOKI knows how to put together a podcast that will make you want to start throwing cake at your grandpa and pop bottles of champagne on your college professor, all before white raver rafting the hell out of there. The Aoki’s House podcasts never disappoint, always filled to the very top with the biggest bangers and hottest remixes this side of the moon, and Aoki’s House Podcast #7 is no different.
On this episode, you’ll find hits by Dan Sena, GTronic, Azari & III, Will Brennan, and other Dim Mak Records artists that have been working hard all year to bring you only the sexiest, sweat-inducing tracks that will ensure you have the right music to get you through the day. This podcast also includes an EXCLUSIVE debut from Jidax that you will NOT want to miss out on. So not only do you get the most poppin’ playlist that will melt your freakin face off, you also get to hear the freshest sounds coming from Dim Mak Records. So what are you waiting for? A formal invitation? It ain’t coming! Head over to iTunes and snag Aoki’s House Podcast #7, free as always because we love you and Steve loves you and now, your ears will love you too.
Bot is of the future. Half man, half-machine; fully Italian. Exiled in West London, locked in the studio since departing legendary duo Crookers, Bot (his creators named him Andrea Fratangelo) has disassembled any expectations and rebuilt his sound for 2018. Futuristic techno and unorthodox club rhythms are welded with hip hop influences, and a nod to the sounds and sprit of classic house. What we have here folks, is the new tomorrow.
SonicC, the young prodigy behind the mind bending “Stickin” is all grown up now. “Hades” takes you on a journey into a devilish banger showcasing his trademark intense buildups and drops. “Pulse” continues the descent into the underworld with an evil bassline and huge buildups that only leave you wanting more. “Androids on Acid” wraps up the EP with a taste of old school house and a drop that can not be ignored.
Remember the days when dance music was a little chill, a little vibey, a little relaxed? The kind of music that sounded perfect coming from your computer speakers as you stayed up late to do your homework, and just as perfect coming from your car speakers while you cruised your city at dusk? It could be played loud, but wasn’t so nuts that your mom would inform you that you’d be deaf by thirty if you didn’t turn that racket down. There’s a fine line between noise for the sake of noise and perfection at its purest, and at Dim Mak Records, we strive to bring you the latter.
That’s exactly the case with the release of “The Wanderer”, brought to your ear holes by Romanthony vs. Kevin McKay. A sound harking back to the early days of dance, but with modern twists and turns that are sure to get you hella amped, “The Wanderer” is a subtle yet undeniably catchy tune that comes packing heat. While the original track is more laid back, the remixes grow increasingly more intense as you go through the EP, and each version of the song showcases a unique turn on an already golden original sound. Turn up the volume, sit back and relax, and let the summer of 2013 roll in on the back of “The Wanderer”.
2012 hit a sad note for Crookers fans when the duo announced that Bot would be going his separate way while Phra carried the Crookers name as a solo venture, and we’ve been waiting ever since to hear something from Bot‘s solo studio sessions. And it looks like the wait is finally over; on April 9th, devoted fans will finally get a sampling of what sort of saucy sounds Bot can make on his own as he releases “Vamos / Go Down” on Dim Mak Records.
This is huge, y’all! Once you’ve heard this track, you’ll be totally salivating for more of what this Italian mega-machine can do. The sounds of “Vamos / Go Down” are completely unlike anything we’ve heard before; it’s like the dance gods took extra special care in forming a talent as refined, energetic, and absolutely unique as Bot’s. The teaser video below is reminiscent of the Saved By the Bell opening credits, but with thunderous beats and super charged layers blazing into your ears over psychedelic visuals. With a video like this, and a breathtaking producer like Bot, this release is going to be one for the history books.
DJ Pierre is no stranger to producing music that pushes boundaries and creates new ways of conceptualizing genres. As one of the original founders of Acid House, he has spent more than a decade delivering innovative and cutting edge underground house music. His most recent release, Seleckta, features Rory from Stone Love on the vocals and provides a Rasta-esque vibe that gets us moving and grooving. He recently concocted an acid heavy Beatport mix, showcasing some of his favorite sounds. Here you can scope tracks from Dim Mak heavyweights Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike, Harvard Bass, a remix from Boys Noize, and many more.
Now that we’re all fully recovered from SXSW and Ultra Music Festival we’d like to share with you raw footage from our Austin Showcase of Will Brennan free styling. This is just a taste of the rappers talent, who recently released his debut Dim Mak EP, RNR. For more videos of our recent adventures in Austin and Miami, check out our official YouTube channel.
Hey Europe! I do sincerely hope that you’ve done your stretches, strapped on your finest dancing shoes, and prepared your mind to be massively stoked because HAEZER is coming your way!
