[Beatport Secret Weapon] Borgore ft. Waka Flocka Flame & Paige – Wild Out (Ookay Remix)

740 470 Dim Mak

All great masterminds have a secret weapon up their sleeve, so why shouldn’t you? Beatport named “Wild Out (Ookay Remix)” to their Secret Weapons chart for electro house, so all you kids can wild out in secret. Grab it now from the chart for just $1.99, not even one million dollars (pinky to lip). It doesn’t come with sharks with lasers attached to their frikken heads though… Then again, if the chart is secret weapons and they send it to everybody, is it really a secret anymore? Anyways, check out the full list below.

If you’ve been a fan of Dim Mak for awhile now, the name Kele Okereke probably rings a bell. If it doesn’t, the name Bloc Party definitely should. Kele is the frontman for award-winning British rock band Bloc Party who released their self-titled EP on Dim Mak back in 2004! Bloc Party also performed at our beloved #DimMakTuesdays at Cinespace and we’ll always consider them to be a special part of the Dim Mak family.

#1 on Hype Machine: Keys N Krates – All The Time (Tove Lo Flip)

1406 817 Tim Gauthier

Incase you didn’t hear, last night Keys N Krates were forced to cancel their live performance in Hollywood @ Avalon due to a low-life gaining access to their green room and stealing their laptops before they went on. KNK took to Facebook this morning to inform their fans of what happened and inadvertently announce their next single “Understand Why.” However, a little laptop debacle isn’t going to hold them back from doing what they love. This morning they leaped to that #1 spot on Hype Machine with their new track “All The Time (Tove Lo Flip)” which was premiered just a few days ago. Have a listen(above) and be sure to ‘favorite’ it to keep them at the top!

[highlight style=”default”][highlighttext title=”To whom ever stole our laptops. Could ya just collect all and save the ‘understand why’ ableton session and send it to us at get@keysnkrates.com ? That’s our next single and we worked really hard on that, and it’s be sweet to not have to remake it.. cause we had those kicks and 808s sounding hard as hell.

The Best Music Venues in Las Vegas

150 150

Las Vegas has long been an important part of the entertainment business, as some of the world’s most iconic performers have showcased their talents here, including Elton John and Frank Sinatra. This influence is still prevalent as the city offers concerts halls as well as music venues within casino complexes, keeping up the variety when casinos can be accessed easily online at sites like www.mobilecasino.co.nz. When in Las Vegas, here are just a few examples of the best music venues.

The MGM Grand Casino is home of the Garden Arena. This music venue has been the site of musical performances by acts such as Bon Jovi and Backstreet Boys and is a large site, with almost 17,000 seats. The overall design of the venue was based on New York’s Madison Square Garden. Future acts performing here include Phish, Zac Brown Band and Stevie Wonder.

The Joint at the Hard Rock Casino is also a top music venue located in Las Vegas. The venue offers seating for 4,500 people as well as a state of the art sound system. The music played here is varied with legendary performances by Paul McCartney and Guns N’ Roses. Future performances here include Darius Rucker and 70’s rock bank, Kiss.

For those looking for jazz, then the Cabaret Jazz Theater is a must visit. Part of the large Smith Center located downtown; this venue offers terrific jazz performances. Storm Large & Le Bonheur are scheduled to perform here in November, with other future performers include Clint Holmes.
The Colosseum at Caesar’s Palace would be a fourth place to find the best music in Vegas. This venue offers future performances by Shania Twain and Rod Stewart. Given the notoriety Las Vegas has garnered for its music, it should be of little surprise that the city offers numerous concert halls to cater to anyone.
