Dim Mak Greatest Hits 2016 offers a selection of the best tracks that the label has to offer from the past year. Featuring a powerful collection of hits ranging from trap and future bass to dancehall and electro house (and everything in between), the package features artists like Steve Aoki, Rain Man, Keys N Krates, Ookay, Garmiani, Botnek & Snails, Autoerotique, Swanky Tunes & Far East Movement, Bok Nero & Jahlil Beats, Dirtyphonics, Max Styler, MORTEN, Henry Fong and many more.
Consistently pushing the boundaries of modern sonics, Botnek delivers their blistering 4-track EP “Buffering…” After kicking off the package with “ur 2 cool,” a mammoth “vomitstep” collaboration with fellow Canadian Snails, the duo maintains a pace of 128 with the breakbeat / electro hybrid “Simple Sounds.” They also remix their own track “Losing My Mind” into a darkwave / industrial-tinged monster before closing out the EP with “Pickles,” a quirky house number reminiscent of the pioneering sound Botnek has become known for.
Vomitstep fans rejoice: Botnek and Snails are here with their highly anticipated Dim Mak single “ur 2 cool.” In a 128 BPM whirlwind of genre-smashing sounds, the two forward-thinking artists entwine heavy bass patches with snarling growl shots in a surefire festival mainstage anthem.
Botnek makes an emphatic return to Dim Mak with the gargantuan 4-track EP “Connecting?” With the two sinister lead singles “Clickbait” and “Losing My Mind” creeping their way into live sets across the festival circuit, the boys are back to continue their sonic assault with the full-fledged project. From the gritty hyper house effort “Bad Bitch” to the mid-tempo electro offering “Touch Me,” the Canadian duo’s signature sound is on full display as they prove once again they are among the top sound designers in the game.
Botnek reminds us that they’re two of the most badass beatmakers in the electro game with their new delivery, “Losing My Mind.” Unleashing their grit at full force, the powerhouse record sets a rock-tinged vocal and tough grimy chords against a dark industrial backdrop that plows hard enough to keep you dancing til daylight.
Botnek and 3LAU’s collab “Vikings” has been reworked by the Bixel Boys, switching up the once electro track, instead with progressive vibes: driving drums, a smattering of spacey synths, and a sick-ass bassline. Rarely does a remix have such wide-appeal & high-praise from all the top blogs – Dancing Astronaut, Insomniac News, Do Androids Dance, Stoney Roads, Earmilk. #FREELIFE
