I think we need to have a moment of silence, out of respect for the Beatport charts that are getting slayed by Dim Mak artists!
It was only five short days ago when we last heard about SHOWTEK storming the Beatport charts, and now they’re taking it to a whole new level as “Slow Down” sits at the #1 spot on the Electro House Top 100! It’s almost like they knew it would be ironic to name such an impossibly good track “Slow Down” when they have no intentions of doing so.
And that’s not all, folks. Nope. Do not adjust your computer screen even though what you’re about to read may seem highly badass… I assure you that this is real life.
Those filthy DIRTYPHONICS guys have earned the coveted #1 spot on Electro House Top 100 Releases with the gnarly sounds from “IRREVERENCE”. With ten unprecedented and unique tracks, “IRREVERENCE” is a mighty force to reckon with and has taken its rightful spot at the very tippy-top of this chart. Oh, and guess who else is sitting high and mighty on the Electro House Top 100 Releases? It’s SHOWTEK at #5 with their “Crunk/Slow Down” EP!
I’ll tell you what; it does the heart and the ears good to see these hard working and uber talented artists from Dim Mak Records kick so much butt. Keep up the good work Showtek and Dirtyphonics, we’ll keep dancing, and the charts will continue to bow down.
Now that March has come to an end and April is in full effect it’s time to start counting down the days until the April 16th release of GTRONIC’s EP, ‘Morpheus & Dufus.’ With only 15 days until the release, GTRONIC has uploaded a full preview on SoundCloud. You can take a listen now as well as grab GTRONIC’s previous release, Sergeant Bass.
After months of speculation, Lollapalooza put all rumors to rest this morning with the release of the 2013 line up. Among the long list of talented artists performing this year, Dim Mak is pleased to be making its way to Grant Park with performances by Steve Aoki, Keys N Krates, and Alvin Risk. If you’re not up to date on their recent releases on Dim Mak I highly suggest you check out Steve Aoki’s “Ooh” featuring Rob Roy, “Treat Me Right” from Keys N Krates, and “Infinity” from Alvin Risk.
3- day passes for the festival are currently sold out, however day passes will go on sale April 3 for $95. You can grab more information on Lollapalooza.com.
The beginning of Irreverence dabbles in intricate melodic piano ambiance that one may expect from a historic four-piece of classically trained French gentlemen – so it’s mildly shocking to know that Dirtyphonics first honed their production skills with metal riffs. After teasing bass fanatics with more than a half-decade spent tempo-shifting club bangers from the Bloody Beetroots (“Warp”) to Benny Benassi (“Electroman”) and Krewella (“Killin’ it”), the collective builds the initial drop of their debut LP across nearly five minutes and two tracks — the classical arrangement of ”Prelude (White)”, and the epic march of “Prelude (Black)” — before finally rewarding fans with a devastating rolling bass release.
Similar to Korn’s The Path of Totality, Irreverence fuses the brutality associated with late-’90s nu-metal and current bass-music. Unlike their predecessors, “Los Angeles”, which features fellow European electro-metal outfit Modestep, and “Walk in the Fire” are an earnest bridge between the sound of their youths toward today’s obsession with bass wobbles and not a feeble attempt to maintain relevancy…

Veteran producers SHOWTEK are not new to the world of dance music. In fact, for the last thirteen years they have been making music that has garnered high praise and the attention of some of the biggest names in pop music today. 2013 is shaping up to be another exciting year for the Dutch duo as they climb charts with absolutely no intention of slowing down at all.
Earlier this month SHOWTEK released “Slow Down” on Dim Mak Records, and just a few days ago this hyper tune sat at #8 on Beatport’s Top10….but oh what a difference a few days (and unyielding support from fans) can make! As of today, “Slow Down” is now sitting pretty at #2! And for good reason…I mean have you heard this track? It’s fun, it’s alive, it’s energetic, and it’s looking at the #1 spot with fire in its eyes while cracking its knuckles.
This isn’t the first time SHOWTEK have seen some chart love; “Slow Down” is the fifth release from these producing brothers to make it into the Beatport Top 10, and we here at Dim Mak Records are ultra proud to be the home of this latest chart-climbing, epic dance anthem that is sure to be on every playlist/mixtape/countdown for the rest of the year.

This year in celebration of his success, the man himself has crafted a compilation of what can be described as nothing but the most epic of tracks out on the market.

In the wake of the destruction caused by Proxy’s mammoth double-album debut, ‘MUSIC FROM THE EASTBLOCK JUNGLES,’ the Russian demiurge returns to scour the ruins for survivors with a cluster of B-side bunker-bangers.

If you didn’t have a chance to make it out to Dim Mak Studios this past Tuesday then you’re in for a special treat. We had one of our writers, Jenna Browning cover the night to remind you all of what you missed out on. You can also check out upcoming events at Dim Mak Studios here. Enjoy!
“Tuesday nights at Dim Mak Studios are always a special time, not only because of the artists that grace the stage but also because of the people who fill the club. The crowd that comes to Tuesday nights just likes to get down, and that’s exactly what they did at Dan Sena’s EP Release Party featuring Trap-A-Holics.
Man-of-the-hour, Mr. Dan Sena himself was first to kick things off in the main room. His set featured a little bit of everything from hard hitting dub step bass to danceable drum kicks that showcased some great
vocal samples. Sena hit you right in the heart with his bass drops but showed a lot of restraint as well when he would pull back the beat and let the samples speak for themselves. Everybody is doing dub step these days, but to have a consistent melody throughout the song is a hard skill to master, and Sena did it wondrously. A highlight was definitely his dropping A-Trak’s “Like A Dance Floor” as well as when he slowed down the beat to “All The Way Turned Up.” Sena ended his set right with “Hold On” By Monsta which had the club grooving.
Next up on the decks was DJ Slink who brought the bass level even higher when he laid down his Trap mix. Slink did a good job of turning classic songs into his own like Pharrell’s “Everybody Nose,” where he turned a familiar chorus line into a robotic style voice that definitely had a unique stamp on it. He played other popular classics as well like Dead Prez’s “Hip Hop,” which had the tables shaking with the earth quaking bass. He ended his set with a performance from rapper Whisky Pete who rapped live over Slinks beats until he threw down his final jam “Shook Pt II,” which is always a solid classic.
After Slink’s set ended and you thought the bass went up as high as it could, Trapaholics took the stage in a Fatal Crew T-shirt and cranked it up even higher. The set was perfect for both old and new trap fans alike, as Trapaholics’s song selection was like a magical journey through the genre. He paid homage to Waka Flocka, Rick Ross, Three 6 Mafia and pretty much everyone else who ever had anything to do with making Trap popular. He played all the classics from Trinidad James’s “All Gold Everything,” to “Trap House” by Gucci Mane, to “Respect Me,” by Rick Ross. He threw down bass that got you to bob your head in the dirtiest of ways with a stank grin on your face while you moved your feet almost unconsciously. This wasn’t your normal type of bass; it was some heavy hitting deepness that welled up in your throat.
All in all, it was a night of epic bass in all its glorious forms. Everyone who stuck around to catch all the sets definitely danced the night away to hard-hitting beats and not to mention the sick visual cubes that were video-mixed live by the masters behind the Dim Mak Studios sound booth. ” - Jenna Browning
Oliver Queen is set to open his Starling City night club and he’s getting one of the best house musicians in the world for opening night.
Grammy nominee Steve Aoki is set to guest star on Arrow, playing himself.
In the hour — titled “The Huntress Returns” (yay), Oliver (series star Stephen Amell) has a new romance brewing, is launching his nightclub and is more content than he’s ever been since coming back from the island. But when his ex, The Huntress (Jessica De Gouw) returns to town, she “threatens to destroy everything and everyone Ollie cares about.”
During the episode the Wonderland artist and DJ will make his scripted series debut performing at the grand opening of Ollie’s club (an evening that we suspect won’t go off without a hitch).

Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo aka The Bloody Beetroots is unashamedly one of the most forward thinking musicians in the electronic music industry and his next announcement shows he has no sign of stopping. Using the team and technology behind Lady Gaga’s Little Monsters, Rifo has worked closely with US agency, Backplane, to launch the first full interactive social media platform exclusively for an electronic artist. The platform is effectively a “cultural-musical movement” which allows for artists, musicians and fans alike to join an exclusive network and share their music and art, and collaborate with others within the community.
Integrating YouTube, Soundcloud, and photos, Church of Noise is an online safe-haven enriched by the ability to upload, comment and share your own creations and have them exist as part of a congregation of similar minds. Its aim is to cultivate freedom of speech and provide a platform to be shared within a congregation and ultimately get you one step closer to Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo. Status will be awarded to more regular users starting their journey as a Rebel, a more frequent user will quickly be upgraded to an Advocate and once truly part of the revolution will become a Champion. The launch of the new platform takes place during the world premiere of the new Bloody Beetroots LIVE show in Australia, and will see the platform host an array of unseen and exclusive content relating to the new live show.
The Church Of Noise community started out in 2011 as a result of the same-titled track, originally a collaboration with Dennis Lyxzén of Swedish hardcore punk-pioneers Refused and The (International) Noise Conspiracy. The song holds a siren-call of strings, bass and lyrical manifesto: “…It only takes a sound to change the beaten path/It only takes love and courage to take it all back”… View the video HERE:
You can sign up to the platform: http://www.therealchurchofnoise.com to become part of the revolution.
