Behind The Scenes: Wild Out Music Video Shoot w/ Borgore, Waka Flocka Flame and more

855 473 Tim Gauthier

When you put Borgore, Waka Flocka Flame, and Steve Aoki together, you know you’re in for a good time. While the video for “Wild Out” features an epic party as well as some forays into a psychedelic world, the making of the video was a party itself. Go behind the green screen and see what the guys get up to when the cameras aren’t rolling. While it might be disappointing to realize that there aren’t ACTUALLY pizzas flying through space, the on set antics might be entertaining enough to let that fact slide.

Dum Dee Dum cracks A MILLI!

1214 679 Tim Gauthier

[two_third]Keys N Krates‘ “Dum Dee Dum” is one of those tunes that instantly gets stuck in your head, and with the official video passing the 1 million views mark, it is also getting stuck on your screens. Directed by Slave Labour, the video is a hilarious mockumentary that explores the Mennonite culture. In the video, the director visits various Mennonite communities and introduces members to current technology unbeknownst to them, including iPods, boom boxes, and more, all the while blasting “Dum Dee Dum.”

Off of last year’s SOLOW EP, “Dum Dee Dum” is also taking festival stages by storm this spring, with support from Skrillex, Carnage, Diplo, RL Grime, Flosstradamus and more. This week the single hit #16 on the US Dance Singles Sales Chart (as ranked by SoundScan), making it the only trap record aside from “Turn Down For What” in the top 20. “Dum Dee Dum” is showing no signs of slowing down.[/two_third][one_third_last]

#SELFIE Absorbed via TIME Magazine

1200 800 Tim Gauthier

Selfies have been linked to mental illness, narcissism and addiction–none of which is news to The Chainsmokers, a New York City–based DJ duo who are rising to success with their infuriatingly infectious single “#SELFIE.” The song is pure audio click bait, from the hashtag in the title to its focus on the neologism du jour: Building on a stubborn earworm of a synth break, the two producers trade the euphoric vocals that often accompany electronic-dance-music singles for a satirical spoken-word track of a girl trying to take the perfect photo during a night out in a club. “Can you guys help me pick a filter?” she drawls.

SUMMERTIME #SELFIE FROM THE STREETS OF MIAMI

1595 829 Tim Gauthier

The Chainsmokers headed to Miami armed with Instagram and a No.1 single for some sunshine, sand, and… plenty of butts. Armin van Buuren, Nicky Romero, Dyro, Dave Nada, and even Ashley Sky wanted to get in on the summertime action so our chainsmoking friends invited them to be in their video. They were like, OK, but first let me take a #selfie.

Jacob Plant Gets Loud on Dim Mak

740 440 Dim Mak

uberjakd logo colorWe could not be more stoked to introduce Jacob Plant into the Dim Mak Records family! Jacob Plant has been pulling out all the stops as of late, releasing explosive electro records like “Fire” and “Shakedown” in the past year. Jacob had an official remix for Calvin Harris‘s smash “I Need Your Love” and has previously remixed the likes of Iggy Azalea, Benny Benassi, and Example. From exploring the worlds of electro, dubstep, trap, and more, it appears that the skies are the limit for young Jacob Plant.

Jacob Plant is getting ready to drop his Louder EP on Dim Mak Records, available for download on April 22nd.

[highlight style=”default”][highlighttext title=”To learn more about Jacob and his Louder EP, see our exclusive interview!” titlesize=”h6″ subtitle=””][/highlighttext][/highlight]
1.    Welcome to Dim Mak, Jacob! We’ve been fans for some time now, and are looking forward to having you here. Why did you pick Dim Mak?

I have been a fan of Dim Mak and Steve Aoki for years now.  I met Steve on tour in India last year and was blown away by his work ethic and how he runs his whole operation.  We spoke about releasing on Dim Mak and I showed him some songs I’d been working on.  We found 3 songs that fit and we went ahead with it!

2.   Your Warehouse EP was the first release on your own label Shakedown Recordings. Why did you choose to base your EP around warehouse rave culture?

At the time of producing those tracks, I was listening to loads of 90’s rave songs.  I was listening to The Prodigy a lot and watching their live show over and over… It was so inspiring I thought it would be cool to take that inspiration and put it in my songs.  I was very much into dance music from a young age so I have always been inspired by those older sounds as well as new!

3.   Recently you released a VIP version of your hit track “Fire” from Fly Eye Records. In this version, you take the electro sound and rework it into a more future house/garage style. Why did you choose to remix it in this style, and any plans on garage or deep house originals?

To be honest it was mainly just for a bit of fun!  I love producing different styles, I think its really important to do.  I was in the studio one night and I was still getting loads of Tweets about that song.  Then I thought, why not remix and give it away for free to my fans!?  I did a house version of “Fire” because it wasn’t the most predictable direction to take it.  It got a really good reaction so I think it did the job!

4.   The Louder EP you produced for us features a mixture of styles. One of the tracks, “Radar”, includes electro and trap within the same record. What made you switch up the drops?

I was playing around with different versions of that song one night.  Originally it was actually 128 BPM but I accidentally changed the tempo to 140 BPM and it sounded better so I just went with it!  I changed the drum beat and in a few hours it sounded completely different.  It’s funny how that works, I find most early demos I work on sound so different to the final version it’s almost a different song!

5.   Is there someone in particular you’d love to work with on a release at Dim Mak?

I really like what Deorro is doing at the moment, it would be pretty cool to do something with him.  Also I would love to do a track with Showtek.  I love playing their records live and they have always been really supportive of my releases!

6.   Electro house has seen a lot of changes in the last year or so, what do you think is coming next?

Yeah there has been a lot of change and very quickly too.  I like how sounds evolve and change, it keeps everything interesting.  I think the next changes are going to be a repeat of older sounds with a modern twist.  I can already hear tracks coming through using sounds from 2006 but with 2014 production skills.  Music and fashion always run in cycles.

7.   What gigs do you have coming up, any plans for touring through the US?

We are currently planning my debut tours in the US this year which I am so excited about.  I love America, I really want to move there one day!  Hopefully I will get back out to countries like India again this year.  That country is amazing, it really blew my mind.  I just got announced on my favourite UK festival, Reading & Leeds Festival.  Last year that was one of the best moments of my career.  The tent was full and all the kids were going mental!  I love seeing crowds go mental at festivals, its the best feeling ever!

8.   You used to produce dubstep a couple of years ago, why did you decide to change over to house music?

I needed a change at that time.  I just wanted to do something different and start fresh.  Also at that time the sound was changing in dubstep and I didn’t really see myself going that way.  I have always made house/electro, so really it was me going back to my roots and exciting myself with new music.  I just want to enjoy what I do and have fun with music.  I want to make music that people dance and rave to at clubs and festivals.  I don’t want rules and boundaries.

9.   What comes next after the Louder EP?

I have some cool collaborations in the pipeline and new music to release in the summer, so keep an eye out!

Afrojack tries to reenact ‘Turn Down For What’ music video

During our Beach Party in Miami last Wednesday we found out that it is very possible to spray champagne too hard. Watch the above video clip of Afrojack trying to recreate a scene from the new ‘Turn Down For What’ music video.

Spoiler Alert: Afrojack doesn’t break through the floor into some girls apartment.
