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.

A Night In Review : #DimMakGrammySunday @ Drai’s

February 13, 2013 Tim Gauthier Music Tags: , , , , ,

538265_540235996009562_1232332353_n

Last week we brought our first installment of, “A Night In Review” this week we’re bringing you the second installment of the series covering our #DimMakGrammySunday at Drai’s. Here you’ll find in depth details of the night including details of Salva and Steve Aoki’s set. You can also check out upcoming events at Dim Mak. 

“As you know, the Grammy Awards happened on Sunday, and none other than bossman himself, Steve Aoki, was nominated for an award. The fact that there are now multiple electronic categories at the Grammys is a testament to how far the genre has come. Needless to say, at the Dim Mak after-party, everyone was in a fantastic mood and ready to celebrate electronic music and it’s ever evolving forms, with sets from DJ Metric, Fashen, DJ Fresh Direct, Salva,  Steve Aoki, and Deorro.

Every surface of Drai’s, from floors, to tables, to the spaces in between, were covered with people getting down and having a good time. When Salva took over the decks, he was greeted by an ever-eager audience that was ready to be bass blown away by some hardcore Trap music, and they were not disappointed. Salva started off with “City Star” by Rusty and then dropped into “Purple Swag” by A$AP Rocky. But the highlight of the set had to be when Salva went old school and mixed Missy Elliot’s classic “Get Your Freak On” with the new instant classic, by Kanye West, “Mercy,” only to launch right back in time when he played “Face Down Ass Up” by 2 Live Crew and “What’s Your Fantasy,” by Ludacris. Salva gave a nod to Trap music when he played a little RL Grime and the crowd fed off his energy and the table-shaking bass that blasted out of the speakers. Salva ended his set with crowd pleasers “All Gold Everything” by 2 Chainz, and “Fucking Problem” by A$AP Rocky.  He saved the best for last and dropped Drake’s new song “Started from the Bottom” as confetti shot all around the club. It was a great moment and totally epitomized the awesomeness that was the vibe in Drai’s.

Then, as the confetti was still falling from the sky, Steve Aoki stepped up to the table, and the crowd of people that had gathered around the dance floor went nuts, not to mention everyone else in the club filing in from all areas, inside and out, to see what was up. His first song was “Don’t You Worry Child” by Swedish House Mafia ft. John Martin and being one to never disappoint, he brought up singer John Martin himself to give a live rendition of the vocals. Then, Steve dove forward into some new songs of his own. The crowd definitely enjoyed getting a preview of what was to come and were rewarded with some Aoki classics like “Ladi Dadi” the Tommy Trash remix, as well as Turbulence, and of course, Pursuit of Happiness. He also dropped the vocal mix of “No Beef” which was a big hit with everyone inside. The fun really started when Borgore popped out of nowhere and stepped up to the decks while Aoki played his song “Decisions.” Before he stepped off the stage, Aoki made a point to tell everyone around to stick around for up-and-coming DJ Deorro who threw down some late night dirty dutch style music.

It was a ridiculous night to say the least, and the energy in the club reverberated out onto the streets as Deorro’s set ended and the lights came on. Those in attendance also included DJ Fresh Direct, Miguel, Skrillex, Carnage, John Martin, and Joachim Garraud.  It was a night that proved how epic electronic dance music can be, and how it can bring people from all over the place together who are just searching for some good music and a damn good time.” – Jenna Browning

Out Now: Dirtyphonics – Walk In The Fire EP

February 12, 2013 Tim Gauthier Music Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Today French artists Dirtyphonics released the “Walk In The Fire” single on Dim Mak Records. “Walk In The Fire” is part of a three-song EP package including remixes by Schoolboy and Culprate.

[lightbox url=”http://itun.es/i6J22Hm” width=”1000″ height=”600″ iframe=”true”][/lightbox] [lightbox url=”http://btprt.dj/XyCwgC” width=”1000″ height=”600″ iframe=”true”][/lightbox] [lightbox url=”http://spoti.fi/11E1vrf” width=”1000″ height=”600″ iframe=”true”][/lightbox] [lightbox url=”http://www.youtube.com/embed/videoseries?list=PLP3NmVJWzd3MdR9oSdZnToHl5ASJmvDCU&hl=en_US” width=”960″ height=”540″ iframe=”true”][/lightbox]

“Walk In The Fire” is metal/drum & bass track which combines the best of two worlds. “Walk in the Fire” kicks off with a guttural guitar grind before coalescing into an electro dubstep break fueled by screams and wild production. Setting the dance floor ablaze like never before, it injects a healthy helping of heavy metal intensity into a drum n’ bass dubstep monster that claws right out of the box. This pure and raw track consists full of energy which will give you a boost for the entire day and night. It will both satisfy the metal- and dub-heads out there, so if you have a friend that’s not fully convinced of the power of electronic music, this track might give them the little boost they need. Schoolboy comes with a Knife Party-like electro remix and Culprate makes an intense dubstep version out of it.

The EP release is the latest release before their long-awaited Full Length “Irreverrence” comes out on Dim Mak Records on March 19th.

Following the release of “Irreverence”, Dirtyphonics will embark on their North American “Irreverence Tour.” Launching March 27 in Vancouver, the 30+ date tour will take them through many major markets as well as anticipated performances at this year’s Coachella where they will perform both weekends Sunday, April 14 and Sunday, April 21. Their live show is a full-on sensory experience more akin to seeing your favorite band than a typical EDM act. They bring a level of energy that’s rare in modern music. A limited amount of tickets for all upcoming US dates are immediately available for purchase direct from Dirtyphonics at: http://dirtyphonics.frontgatetickets.com

Boiler Room, Los Angeles 015

January 31, 2013 Tim Gauthier Music Tags: , , , ,
22090_10101617722343352_3071630_n
Tuesday night I had the chance to visit the infamous Boiler Room in Los Angeles hosted at Innovative Leisure headquarters. The night included a solid lineup featuring sets from  Gossamer, D-Tiberio, Low Limit, Classixx, Nosaj Thing, and a live performance from Rhye. Each artist brought a different touch to the table creating a flow of energy that continued throughout the night.  Some of my personal highlights included Low Limit dropping Foe Tha Love of $ by Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Classixx unveiling new tracks, and finally witnessing Nosaj Thing live. After streaming Boiler Room sets from my computer for sometime is was interesting to finally be on the other side and see how the night played out from beginning to end.

If this is your first time hearing about the Boiler Room then I highly suggest you get familiar with the program. The Boiler Room began in 2010 in London and has since then expanded to cities across the world hosting underground events in secret locations with live streams hosted on their website. Some of the artists that have made their way behind the lens for sessions include Toro Y Moi, Flying Lotus, RL Grime, Diplo, Alexander Split, and others. You can catch up on past sessions and stay up to date with upcoming streams on their website. Enjoy!

Today, Azari & III release  their sprightly dark and echo driven track “Indigo”. Azari & III “a house music quartet who’s tracks have captured the essence of dance music’s roots back when it lurked in the dark underground nightspots” (VIBE), team up with Konrad Black and Serge Santiago to put together a pack of remixes set to skulk into the corners and grandeur of the human condition. “It’s that words cannot always adequately express the depth of the human condition, and when it all comes flooding in on you.” – Azari and III about message behind “Indigo”
