A big and bold electro house jam, Blitz serves as a more-than-fine sequel to last winter’s Surge. The springy lead and powerful drums do justice to the big room vibes and reputation he’s known for while pushing the envelope and not conforming to the endless waves of music of similar vein…
Every artist knows that the highest form of a compliment is through imitation. From the outdoor coastal concept to the colorfully artistic effects, Big Sean’s latest music video for his single “10 2 10″ is exactly that.
Dim Mak’s own Clockwork released the music video for his single “Surge” back in June 2013 showcasing some unique and original effects against a back drop of the coastal wilderness. From the hike through the wooded trails to the shots of the waves and the clouds rolling in over the scene, it puts you at one with nature and the meaning of the lyrics “I can feel it in my body” shine through without question.
“10 2 10″ , released just about a week ago, boasts an oh so similar concept. Hike through the wooded trails? Check. Waves? Check. Clouds? Check. But wait, what about those super cool visual effects? Check. (Shout out @susboy911) It is super reminiscent of what we saw with Clockwork’s “Surge”… and that is awesome. As far as the lyrics and video creating cohesive concept, its not exactly on the money. With the song being about working from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. and back again, when did he have time to stroll to the beach? I mean, since he was busy working and all.
So you be the judge. Who wore it best?
It seems like just yesterday when we were all jamming the eff out to the brilliant collaboration of Felix Cartal and Clockwork’s “The Fire (ft. Madame Buttons)”. Oh wait…it was just yesterday. And every day since it was released, right?
CLOCKWORK has handed this solid track over to be remixed by CHARLIE DARKER, TONY ROMERA, RIGGI & PIROS, and DEORRO, four producers who no doubt translate the anthem in a multitude of ways….

#15 Clockwork, feat. Wynter Gordon – “Surge” (Dim Mak)
For all EDM’s pop aspirations, it rarely nails that elusive crossover as perfectly as this extended serotonin rush of a song, which floods your brain just as forcefully whether you hear it in a field full of wide-eyed first-time ravers or waiting in line at the grocery store.
Dim Mak allstar Clockwork has just provided us a stellar video to go along with his uplifting and hard-hitting anthem “Surge,” which features some sweet vocals from Wynter Gordon. This track was one of the huge anthems of 2013 and if you made it out to any major festivals over the last six months you probably heard it dropped and perhaps even did a little fist-pumping to one of the track’s bleepy drops. The video echoes the high-energy nature of the track and features everything from friends running through the forest to electrified zombies dancing on some sort of post-apocalyptic beach. Points for creativity on this one… (via THUMP)

The party never stops when the Dim Mak crew is on scene. If you thought day 1 in Miami was wild then days 2 and 3 of WMC 2013 were nothing less than savage.
Things got wet and, well, weird as we hosted our highly anticipated Dim Mak Records Pool Party on Day 2. The Raleigh Hotel pool was full of babes in bikinis and dudes ready to dance their faces off. With rousing performances by Steve Aoki, Dzeko & Torres, Dirtyphonics, Laidback Luke, Keys N Krates, Yolanda Be Cool, Borgore & Carnage, Clockwork, and Benny Benassi, just to name a few, the day turned into night and back to day before anyone even realized it happened.
The insanity continued on day 3 as we made our way to the OWSLA Party at Red Bull House where we undoubtedly had our share of fun.
Make sure you stay tuned for “Dim Mak Invades Miami – Part 3″ to catch us at Ultra Music Festival.
Dim Mak made it’s way to Miami for 2013’s WMC/MMW and Ultra Music Festival. Along with Steve Aoki‘s set at UMF, Dim Mak hosted two showcases welcoming two dream come true line ups at Raleigh Hotel and Story.
