Nick Grimshaw from BBC Radio 1 apparently asked Scarlett Johansson…yes…THEE Hollywood A-lister model and actress Scarlett Johansson, to re-record the vocals to The Chainsmokers‘ hit #SELFIE. And. She. Did. It. Ironically, her voice is less screechy and annoying than the original making the vocals in the satirical song to be more bearable. I guess this is a testament to making it when you have Scarlett Johansson doing vocals for you.
Who wears cheetah? You do, Scarlett. You do.
This coming #DimMakTuesday, we are proud to host London DJ & producer Nat Self a.k.a. Zombie Disco Squad of San Francisco tech funk label Dirtybird Records!
Barely into his thirties, Z.D.S. has already collaborated with the likes of Classic Records (brainchild of definite house elder statesmen Luke Solomon and Derrick Carter), Spanish techno/house label Suara, and Chicago booty bass don DJ Funk and UK soul legend Omar to name a few. On December 3rd, Z.D.S. brings his signature tech-house sound to our beloved #DimMakTuesdays. Joining Z.D.S. on the decks is LA-based producer Matthew Wasley a.k.a. Human Life (Hot Creations // Defected) whose sound, which combines the best of the underground and the overground without contriteness or awkwardness, has caught the attention of French legend Alan Braxe, the iconic Pete Tong, A-Trak, & others.

Peep Z.D.S.’s recent mix for Annie Mac on BBC Radio 1 featuring sounds from Supernova, Justin Martin, Ardalan, Snoop Dog, and more!
Annie Nightingale featured a guest mix from the amazing Toronto trio Keys N Krates. The mix gets another spin, plus the usual big bass tunes, including Gesaffelstein, Skrillex, Baauer and Daniel Avery.
Even though this track doesn’t come out until March 5th on Dim Mak Records, it’s no doubt that it’s already becoming a true Trap classic. Keys N Krates‘ “Treat Me Right” has been played dozens of times already by the likes of TNGHT and everybody is jumping for the track to be released. Annie Mac had the honor to premiere it during her BBC Radio 1 show this last weekend.
Over the last year, Keys N Krates toured with and played alongside artists including; Pretty Lights, Lotus, Skrillex, Girl Talk, Kid Cudi, Metric, Timbaland, Zed’s Dead and more. In 2012 the band continued to make an impact on the festival scene, playing major shows at Wakarusa, Ultra Music Festival, Movement Festival, Osheaga and Sonar in Barcelona. The band also produced several hype machine chart topping remixes for Bassnectar, Adventure Club, Zeds Dead and Nelly Furtado.
To really grasp what Tune, Matisse, and Jr. Flo bring to the stage, you have to see it up close. Their shows are filled with high-energy sets that are made to be witnessed live. The guys continue to craft and grow their sound and style, exposing audiences worldwide to the Keys N Krates experience.

The new single from Proxy’s debut LP, MUSIC FROM THE EASTBLOCK JUNGLES PT. 1, “Junk” is a maelstrom of old-skool breaks and wailing synth-sirens, featuring a brilliant cut-up vocal sample commanding your synapses to give up and break down. This is the kind of atom-smashing cortex-ruiner that only Proxy can deliver, offering a taste of the years-in-the-making arms buildup contained on his album.
The lovely Annie Mac had taken hold of the upcoming single, and hosted an exclusive download of “Junk” on her “New Music Monday’s” channel, in conjunction with BBC Radio 1! Get the download while is lasts below:
