To all our avid fans, and frequents of the Twitter #FF shoutouts, we have adorned a whole new meaning towards this overused Friday chant-off… Presenting #FreeFriday. This week we’re giving a full album away from MUST DIE! called VINES. Listen and download below.
Vines is an incredible album with melodic progressions and crisp percussion. The album begins with the track “Vines” and immediately dives into the hard-hitting “Hold Me Now” where it begins the rest of its melodious journey. It embraces the feel of old video games and the unique style of MUST DIE!

Long time friend of the Dim Mak family, Kid Cudi is back with his first single from his upcoming album Indicud, which is anticipated for release in early 2013.
The video for Just What I Am featuring fellow Cleveland native King Chip, takes us on a top-down joy ride through DTLA to a laid back warehouse party. The raw flicker show style visuals captivate you and bring you along for this slow-mo, cosmic party experience full of red cups, hot babes and of course it wouldn’t be an LA party without Steve Aoki in the DJ booth.
To help you guys get over this hump day we’ve released another teaser for South Central’s Hollywood EP. To date we’ve released all but one teaser from the collection, playing on the notable phrase- “good things come to those who wait.” Check out the current tracks on our SoundCloud, and keep a look out for the final teaser, Star Wars before the EP’s debut next week. If you find yourself playing these teasers on loop like I did, the EP is also available for pre-order on iTunes.
With Revolvr’s upcoming release of Machine with Lea Luna on November 27, we’d like to welcome him to the Dim Mak family. In support of the release, Revolvr has been touring through out the U.S. with four stops left in San Francisco, Houston, San Diego, and Boulder, CO. Known for being the kind of guy that likes giving his music out for free, I highly suggest you take advantage of this and take a look at his SoundCloud. Revolvr has a number of amazing remix’s available for free download including his rework of Spectrum by Zedd, Internet Friends by Knife Party, and more.
In the THE HUNDREDS X SERATO RECORDS commercial you may have caught glimpses Diplo, Partytime, Paul Devro, Jayceeoh, and Dim Mak’s very own Yung Skeeter. Shot at the Dim Mak Headquarters, Yung Skeeter is captured in our office with the limited edition control record which is now available for purchase on The Hundreds and Serato website while supplies last.
Since March, Spin The Vote a national voter registration project created by Insomniac and Rock the Vote has been campaigning to register young voters for today’s election taking place. You may have noticed Spin The Vote at music festivals these past few months including Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas, Electric Daisy Carnival New York, Beyond Wonderland and Nocturnal Wonderland. Spin the Vote has done an amazing job with its campaign, informing and registering young voters these past few months. In honor of election day we’d like to share this live remix video of Steve Aoki & Angger Dimas’ “Beat Down feat. Iggy Azalea” from DJ Enferno in support of Spin the Vote (www.spinthevote.org).

After years of anticipation, Proxy at last presents his debut LP, MUSIC FROM THE EASTBLOCK JUNGLES, PT. 1. Beloved by top DJs and stadium crowds the world over, the undisputed master of the “Turn It Up to 11” movement has created an album that harnesses the pure spirit of legit rave culture, with 11 tracks that span and elevate countless genres – notably inflected by classic bass and DnB – without regard for trends or ephemeral influences. The album is the product of an artist who forged a sound in complete isolation, with visa problems leading him to entrench himself in the middle of nowhere in his native Russia, continuing in the UK rave tradition of his Essex-spawned idols, The Prodigy.
