Azari & III’s “Manhooker (Locked Groove’s Escape to NYC Mix)” off yesterdays release, ‘Azari & III’s Remix Album’ was featured on Pitchfork noting, ” Locked Groove takes the record’s sultry “Manhooker” and gives it a hard-techno wash.” The track is 1 of 15 on the package full of impressive remixes from artists including Tiga, Jamie Jones, Nicolas Jaar, Disclosure, and more. You can read feature in its entirety on Pitchfork, as well as grab your copy on iTunes now.
Following up Proxy’s recently released MFTEJ Part 2 is his Who Are You? EP, out today.”Proxy’s up-tempo title track is carried by an alternating kick-snare and an adrenalizing low-end chomp, the female sample in between drops reinforcing the song’s bad-ass attitude. Rounding out the EP are sufficiently rowdy remixes of “Who Are You?” from Pilo, Attaque, Trumpdisco and the Sneekers.”

Following their recent North American invasion, Toronto electronic group AZARI & III return with the release of their REMIX ALBUM out February 26 via Dim Mak Records. The REMIX ALBUM consists of some of the best AZARI & III remixes by today’s leading producers in the underground electronic movement. The compilation features classic AZARI & III remixes—including “Reckless (With Your Love)” (Tiga’s What Iz House Muzik? Remix), “Hungry for the Power” (Jamie Jones Ridge Street Remix) and “Into the Night” (Nicolas Jaar Remix)—as well as several rarities like “Manhooker” (Locked Groove’s Escape To NYC Remix) and “Indigo” (Voyeur Remix) and many other gems. Available for the first time in a single collection, the REMIX ALBUM gathers the premier AZARI & III remixes around for an elite anthology of electronic music production.
The REMIX ALBUM runs the gamut of EDM subgenres and sonic moods from the polished disco of “Into The Night” (Prince Language Remix), the tortured “Hungry For The Power” (Sei A Remix), the future synth assault of “Manic” (Disclosure Remix), the funk-fueled bass of “Hungry For The Power” (Art Department Remix) and many more. The REMIX ALBUM is the ultimate set of celebrated and rare AZARI & III remixes for fans and new listeners alike.
After their 2010 Get Rich or High Tryin EP, Douster and Savage Skulls meets again for the Bass Kick EP, 3 dancefloor killers, each one showcasing the 3 producers’s special touch. On the title track Bass Kick, the two swedes and the french delivers a futuristic, bass heavy club track where high pitched synths and deep 808 bass collides in an explosion of pure rave energy. On the second track, TRT, they show us theire love for old school speed garage, the vocal gimmicks and classic organ bass sound makes it one of the most catchy track this year. Last but not least, Nicole, who was showcased on Dim Mak’s New Sound #2 last year is an infectious stadium sized banger filled with tropical rythms and alarm sound.
Just last week, we shared news of a forthcoming Azari & III remix compilation which features reworks from the likes of Nicolas Jaar, Disclosure, Jamies Jones, Maceo Plex, Locked Groove, and many other top-shelf producers. Now, we’ve gotten our hands on an exclusive remix of the Canadian outift’s “Lost in Time” track from budding Los Angeles outfit VCO. This sharp and driving take on the tune will actually not be appearing on the aformentioned Remix Album, but will in fact find a spot on Azari & III’s Lost in Time EP when it drops this spring via Dim Mak, after the label releases the other remixes tomorrow. Yes, it’s all a bit confusing, but the essential take home points here are as follows: First, Azari & III have two fresh releases on the way, and second, this freebie is going to add some delectable dancefloor weight to your collection.

What happens in Vegas, ends up all over the internet and Vegas is no longer safe, which works out great as it served for a perfect location to have ourselves a little party. We teamed up with Joyrich for a cake filled celebration at The Act Nightclub in Las Vegas, where we showed off some of our new Dim Mak x Joyrich collab “Let Them Eat Cake” merch. With sounds pumping by Them Jeans, Kay, DJ Metric and hosted by Hannah Beth! A few of our friends Cobra Snake, Misha Janette, Mookee, Jonny Cota, Dork Dozier, Justin Barco + more came through and it took a lot of strength for us to not unleash a full on cake fight.
