Dim Mak Heads to Austin

684 396 Tim Gauthier

This year we started off the 2013 festival season in Austin, Texas during the SXSW festivities for the Dim Mak x Buygore showcase. A few members from our team headed out from LA to the lone star state to help including #Jenks, Bryan (B!) Linares, Alexvnder, and others. Even our good friend NeilFavila.com made it!

The event served as a platform to showcase Dim Mak’s newest and long-term artists from near and far. We rallied in the troops for a roster that included Scanners, AutoErotique, PeaceTreaty, Azari & III, Keys N Krates, Will Brennan, New Ivory. Borgore and the Buygore camp presented Kennedy Jones, Ookay, & an epic Borgore x Carnage dj set. You know this was a party!

Music By:
Autoerotique “The Alarm” (Keys N Krates Remix) – Out 6.4.13

Artist Spotlight: Scanners ‘Control’

847 470 Tim Gauthier

Dark pop/alternative indie band, Scanners performed their featured track “Control” at the Dim Max x Buygore Austin 2013 Showcase where the band played live alongside some of Dim Mak and Buygore’s biggest artists. “Control” is the melodic and gritty guitar filled single off their new album ‘Love is Symmetry’. The music video for “Control” is a compilation of different live performances the band did in Austin and highlights their passionately energetic stage presence and their signature folky alternative sound.
The London based band is making their highly anticipated return back to the world of music after two years of silence with the release of their new album ‘Love is Symmetry’, their third full-length album on Dim Mak Records scheduled to be release in June 2013.

Scanners have been a part of Dim Mak’s roster of artists since 2006, after Dim Mak chief, Steve Aoki, came across their track, “Violence is Golden” on the internet and later made a trip to London and signed the band. Since then, Scanners have released their debut and sophomore albums, ‘Violence is Golden’ (2006) and ‘Submarine’ (2010) on Dim Mak as precursors to ‘Love is Symmetry’. But their success does not stop there. They have also been featured on a number of popular television shows including Gossip Girl, Shameless, One Tree Hill, Entourage, and a live performance on the ‘Carson Daly’ Show. Along with their television show features, Scanners have supported distinguished acts worldwide including Silversun Pickups, Devo, and Juliette and The Licks among many others.

In April, the band toured around Germany in celebration of ‘Love is Symmetry’ and will continue touring the States and Europe throughout 2013.

The Mexico EP, which features their single “Control”, is out now and available for purchase on iTunes.

Dim Mak x #blu eCigs x #ElectricLounge x Austin, TX

640 546 Tim Gauthier

For one week out of the year, all eyes are on the Lone Star state as thousands of fans, bands, bloggers, vendors, and film geeks swarm the Texas state capital for SXSW.

This year, from March 14-16, a new venue with the electronic set in mind popped up on historic 6th street. Sponsored by blu eCigs, the Electric Lounge held free shows featuring some of today’s most popular and rising stars of the dance movement; so naturally, there were some incredible Dim Mak Records artists included in the lineup. We all know it’s not a party until it’s a Dim Mak party, and SXSW attendees learned that lesson first hand. Featured at the Electric Lounge were DMR artists Datsik, Keys N’ Krates, and Will Brennan. Playing to a packed, yet intimate crowd, the lounge was popping off like the buttons of a too-tight shirt on a too-round man.

Datsik did what he does the absolute best (see: blow minds) by playing tracks off of his newest EP, Cold Blooded(Firepower), as well as crowd favorites from the “Vitamin D” album.

The triple threat trio of Keys N’ Krates brought the house down with pumping vibrations, giving fans a taste of what’s to come in 2013 with “Treat Me Right”, the trios newest single that is placing on charts all across the board.

Will Brennan, riding the waves of his latest releases “RNR” and “Fall In Love” in celebration of the re-release of his album “Prodigal Son”, the hip hop/electro darling gave Electric Lounge a performance that dared the attendees to not throw their hands up and get down.

All in all, Dim Mak Records artists showed native Austinites and international visitors alike that the label features diverse artists who know how to please an equally diverse crowd. Thanks to everyone who supported our hard working artists at this years SXSW, and an extra special thanks to #blu eCigs and #ElectricLounge for shining their spotlight on Dim Mak Records.

Check out some of the madness that took place in the photobooth on Thursday. See the full set here.
