Yolanda Be Cool‘s “All That She Wants ft. SYF & Fritz Helder” juxtaposes cheeky & fun with dark & haunting all wrapped around the irresistible vox of the “Hungry for the Power” boys and one of THOSE baselines.

On the remix tip, Defected Records and Hot Creations artist Human Life gives a nod to the original on his housey re-work while Pete Tong future stars pick Walker & Royce keep things dark, but oh so cool with their remix and their bonus deep space dub mix.

[THUMP VIDEO] Real talk with over 20 of Toronto’s dance music gurus.

October 31, 2013 Tim Gauthier Lifestyle, Music, News, Video Tags: , , , , ,

In mere days from now—November 4 through 9, to be exact—a selection of finalists from around the world will touch down in Toronto for the Red Bull Thre3style World Finals, the globe’s best DJ competition actually geared towards the dancefloor. But it’s not like the Canadian capital needs any talent imported. Many of the DJs/producers currently blowing up the club scene worldwide originate in the T… and you may not even know it.

In this video, Brooklyn-based DJ Jubilee—a Thre3style judge who has played in Canada so many times she’s practically half-maple—visits over 15 of her Toronto-based friends, including Dim Mak superstars Keys N Kratesand Autoerotique, bass dudes Hunter Siegel and Marcus Visionary, techno leading lights Gingy and Alixander III (of Azari & III), and frequent Thre3style performers GrandtheftThugli, and Skratch Bastid, among many others. Along the way we discover that the Toronto dance music scene is a fractured but lovable family—most of these producers have worked together, lived together, thrown parties together, or gotten in fights with each other at one point or another, whether they’re deep in the techno game or banging out the hardest trap sounds.

Watch See You in Toronto to find about Torro Torro’s secret love affair with pigs, why Bruce Trail is a wizard, who throws the best afterparties, how Autoerotique gets erotic, and why Hamilton is the darkest place on the planet Earth, among other secrets of the city’s dance music elite.

Artist Spotlight: Azari & III ‘Hungry for the Power’

May 20, 2013 Tim Gauthier Music, Video Tags: , ,

Groovy basslines, feel-good rhythms, and dark yet hooky vocals, three signature elements you can certainly count on house music masters Azari & III to integrate into every one of their hypnotic tracks. The Toronto based quartet takes us on a ride back in time and drops us off during the classic Chicago house era where chill synth textures and syncopated overtones ruled the scene. Azari & III fuse classic house revivalism with modern interpretation. Their featured track, “Hungry for the Power (Jamie Jones Ridge Remix)” released on Dim Mak Records, highlights their back to the future type sound.

Azari & III have the power to captivate you with their upbeat dance moves and expressive stage presence. The music video for “Hungry for the Power” is a compilation of live performance footage from the Sonar North American tour and the 2013 Dim Mak Records showcase in Austin, Texas. The soulful house collective command the stage as Dinamo Azari and Alixander III handle the live electronics while Starving Yet Full and Fritz Helder take charge of the vocals.

In October of 2012, the Canadian house music group released their self titled album Azari & III on Dim Mak Records, which features “Hungry for the Power”. Dim Mak founder, Steve Aoki boasts “[Azari & III] bring up sounds from the past, but it’s what I think the future sounds like. And Azari & III are beyond any trends, which makes this one of the best albums of our generation. They also recently released an EP with their latest single “Lost in Time”, also released on Dim Mak Records in April 2013.” Both are available for purchase on iTunes.

Azari & III will be touring the states in late May/early June with shows in Hollywood, San Francisco, New York, and Philadelphia.

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!
