Following a veritable slew of chart-topping dubstep releases, blossoming producer MUST DIE! presents with Water Temple an EP that is anthemic, nostalgic, and already beloved by industry insiders. Foremost, the title track pulls at our heartstrings as solidly as it drops. The unapologetically distinct intro breaks into a rare showcase of the melody and throwback sound that will later carry the whole song, punctuated only by the slap of waves and impressive “underwater” dubstep growls. With a bass drop that is as detailed as it is emotive, “Water Temple” demands to stay in rotation for ages to come.

Now that March has come to an end and April is in full effect it’s time to start counting down the days until the April 16th release of GTRONIC’s EP, ‘Morpheus & Dufus.’ With only 15 days until the release, GTRONIC has uploaded a full preview on SoundCloud. You can take a listen now as well as grab GTRONIC’s previous release, Sergeant Bass.
The beginning of Irreverence dabbles in intricate melodic piano ambiance that one may expect from a historic four-piece of classically trained French gentlemen – so it’s mildly shocking to know that Dirtyphonics first honed their production skills with metal riffs. After teasing bass fanatics with more than a half-decade spent tempo-shifting club bangers from the Bloody Beetroots (“Warp”) to Benny Benassi (“Electroman”) and Krewella (“Killin’ it”), the collective builds the initial drop of their debut LP across nearly five minutes and two tracks — the classical arrangement of ”Prelude (White)”, and the epic march of “Prelude (Black)” — before finally rewarding fans with a devastating rolling bass release.
Similar to Korn’s The Path of Totality, Irreverence fuses the brutality associated with late-’90s nu-metal and current bass-music. Unlike their predecessors, “Los Angeles”, which features fellow European electro-metal outfit Modestep, and “Walk in the Fire” are an earnest bridge between the sound of their youths toward today’s obsession with bass wobbles and not a feeble attempt to maintain relevancy…

Aaaah, spring time. A time for flowers, soft rain showers, and… GROUND BREAKING ANTHEMS? What?! This ain’t your grandma’s season anymore. Leading the pack of up and coming crowd pumping anthems to be released in the next few months is “This Record” by Jacob Van Hage and Billy the Kit, out on Dim Mak Records on April 2nd.
“This Record” is a heart racing, sweat inducing track that takes what you thought you knew about electro house and mind numbing drops and makes your knowledge look like that of a two year old with a toy piano. We’ve come to expect nothing less than pure music magic from the duo Jacob Van Hage and Billy the Kit, so when these forces combine as they have for “This Record”, the result is sure to be devastating to sound systems for the rest of the year.
Check out a sneak peak of “This Record” and start counting down the days until April 2nd when this scorching track can be yours to bump indefinitely, courtesy of Dim Mak Records.
Veteran producers SHOWTEK are not new to the world of dance music. In fact, for the last thirteen years they have been making music that has garnered high praise and the attention of some of the biggest names in pop music today. 2013 is shaping up to be another exciting year for the Dutch duo as they climb charts with absolutely no intention of slowing down at all.
Earlier this month SHOWTEK released “Slow Down” on Dim Mak Records, and just a few days ago this hyper tune sat at #8 on Beatport’s Top10….but oh what a difference a few days (and unyielding support from fans) can make! As of today, “Slow Down” is now sitting pretty at #2! And for good reason…I mean have you heard this track? It’s fun, it’s alive, it’s energetic, and it’s looking at the #1 spot with fire in its eyes while cracking its knuckles.
This isn’t the first time SHOWTEK have seen some chart love; “Slow Down” is the fifth release from these producing brothers to make it into the Beatport Top 10, and we here at Dim Mak Records are ultra proud to be the home of this latest chart-climbing, epic dance anthem that is sure to be on every playlist/mixtape/countdown for the rest of the year. Listen to the track below and let’s get these guys to #1 all across the board!

When a song that mentions a “bowtie” makes you feel like some sort of fancy badass, you know that there has to be a musical mastermind (and his friends) behind it. Such is the case with Steve Aoki’s “Ooh” featuring Rob Roy off of the 2012 release of “Wonderland”.
This year, that unforgettable track has been given a fresh breath of life with remixes from Deorro, Gigi Barocco, Mustard Pimp, Lazerdisk Party Sex, and Dzeko & Torres. Each remixer brings their own taste and stylings to “Ooh” in ways that are instantly recognizable and just as infectious as the original track. Just when you thought it was perfect to begin with, these remixes highlight different aspects of the song while throwing individual flare into the mix. And the result is truly refreshing.
To top off all of the remixes, Steve released the music video for “Ooh” on March 22nd, which includes hot girls in straightjackets, a no-nonsense tough ass little kid, a sneak peek of the SoLRepublic x Aoki headphone collab, and uber creepy face painting.
So put on your bowtie, get yo’ head some screws, and join us in feeling real good about “Ooh” in all its various forms.

Whether you prefer the sounds of dubstep bassiness or fast flowing, mind numbingly good lyrics (or perhaps a mixture of both), I have fantastic news; warm up your “high five” hand because we here at Dim Mak Records are super psyched to announce that our very own Will Brennan has landed at #9 on TrackItDown’s “Top 100 Dubstep Songs”!
It really shouldn’t be a surprise, especially if you’ve heard which song TrackItDown chose; RNR (Enferno Remix). This remix is nice and chunky, like delicious southwest salsa, and every bit as hot. Released exactly a week ago today on Dim Mak Records, “RNR” and its creator Will Brennan have had an incredibly exciting March. He tore up the stage at the Electric Lounge during SXSW, unleashed the “RNR” EP plus all its delicious remixes into the world, and now he’s hanging out at #9 on a list chock full of heavy hitters. I’d say that all the hard work this young Florida native is putting in has paid off, but the success of “RNR” and Brennan’s placement on the chart speaks loud and clear. Congrats Will & Enferno!
I like things that are shredded. Shredded cheese? Legitimately delicious on everything. Shredder from TMNT? A sufficiently spine tingling villain with a dislike for pizza loving turtles. But you know what I love more than both of those things combined? The way Dirtyphonics’ “IRREVERANCE” is shredding on numerous BEATPORT charts right now!
As of today, here is where “IRREVERANCE” stands in the illustrious Beatport charts:
Top 100 Release: #8
Drum & Bass Top 100 Releases: #2
Dubstep Top 100 Releases: #2
Electro House Top 100 Releases: #2
With tracks like “Chaos” and “No Stopping Us” featuring Foreign Beggars, it’s clear that this album is going to continue to impress and climb charts all across the board. “IRREVERANCE” stands as a testament to old and new listeners alike that Dirtyphonics are increasingly great at making music that takes no prisoners, just leaves a trail of #dirty fans ready for more heart pounding, crowd pleasing, and game changing bangers.
