Deorro & Adrian Delgado – All I Need Is Your Love (Remixes)

August 19, 2014 Tim Gauthier Blog, New Music Tags: , , , , , ,

Four months after Deorro and Adrian Delgado stormed festival stages and living room stereos alike with their heartfelt, emotive collaboration “All I Need Is Your Love,” the track has been revamped in a three-part remix package courtesy of D!RTY AUD!O, TAI and ZooFunktion.

Highlighting the original tune’s warm lyrics and distorted vocals, each remixer elevates “All I Need Is Your Love” to unique and unexpected heights. While German producer TAI ups the track’s tempo and mixes in a rapid-fire drumroll hook, California-based ZooFunktion swaps out the original’s anticipatory intro for straightforward bassline assault and Dim Mak fixture D!RTY AUD!O transforms the release into a glitched-out atmospheric groove.

#TBT to when Deorro went by Tonic

April 17, 2014 Dim Mak #ThrowbackThursday Tags: , , ,

With 4 albums under his belt and a new single “All I Need Is Your Love” with Adrian Delgado climbing iTunes charts, we are celebrating our favorite panda faced DJ and where he started from with our favorite Tonic throw back tracks.  To some people Deorro is a new name but he has actually been in the game for a very long time. Now with songs like Dechorro reaching #1 on Beatport its easy to forget those Myspace days that Tonic planted the seeds for. Deorro started under the name Tonic and was creating a lot of traction in the Los Angeles party scene.  Due to legal issues he had to change his name to Deorro but he still kept his distinct dirty dutch sound.  Have a walk down memory lane with our favorite tracks and be sure to download his new single with Adrian Delgado, “All I Need Is Your Love.”

Jacob Plant Gets Loud on Dim Mak

March 31, 2014 Cubby Interviews, News Tags: , , , , , ,

uberjakd logo colorWe could not be more stoked to introduce Jacob Plant into the Dim Mak Records family! Jacob Plant has been pulling out all the stops as of late, releasing explosive electro records like “Fire” and “Shakedown” in the past year. Jacob had an official remix for Calvin Harris‘s smash “I Need Your Love” and has previously remixed the likes of Iggy Azalea, Benny Benassi, and Example. From exploring the worlds of electro, dubstep, trap, and more, it appears that the skies are the limit for young Jacob Plant.

Jacob Plant is getting ready to drop his Louder EP on Dim Mak Records, available for download on April 22nd.

[highlight style=”default”][highlighttext title=”To learn more about Jacob and his Louder EP, see our exclusive interview!” titlesize=”h6″ subtitle=””][/highlighttext][/highlight]
1.    Welcome to Dim Mak, Jacob! We’ve been fans for some time now, and are looking forward to having you here. Why did you pick Dim Mak?

I have been a fan of Dim Mak and Steve Aoki for years now.  I met Steve on tour in India last year and was blown away by his work ethic and how he runs his whole operation.  We spoke about releasing on Dim Mak and I showed him some songs I’d been working on.  We found 3 songs that fit and we went ahead with it!

2.   Your Warehouse EP was the first release on your own label Shakedown Recordings. Why did you choose to base your EP around warehouse rave culture?

At the time of producing those tracks, I was listening to loads of 90’s rave songs.  I was listening to The Prodigy a lot and watching their live show over and over… It was so inspiring I thought it would be cool to take that inspiration and put it in my songs.  I was very much into dance music from a young age so I have always been inspired by those older sounds as well as new!

3.   Recently you released a VIP version of your hit track “Fire” from Fly Eye Records. In this version, you take the electro sound and rework it into a more future house/garage style. Why did you choose to remix it in this style, and any plans on garage or deep house originals?

To be honest it was mainly just for a bit of fun!  I love producing different styles, I think its really important to do.  I was in the studio one night and I was still getting loads of Tweets about that song.  Then I thought, why not remix and give it away for free to my fans!?  I did a house version of “Fire” because it wasn’t the most predictable direction to take it.  It got a really good reaction so I think it did the job!

4.   The Louder EP you produced for us features a mixture of styles. One of the tracks, “Radar”, includes electro and trap within the same record. What made you switch up the drops?

I was playing around with different versions of that song one night.  Originally it was actually 128 BPM but I accidentally changed the tempo to 140 BPM and it sounded better so I just went with it!  I changed the drum beat and in a few hours it sounded completely different.  It’s funny how that works, I find most early demos I work on sound so different to the final version it’s almost a different song!

5.   Is there someone in particular you’d love to work with on a release at Dim Mak?

I really like what Deorro is doing at the moment, it would be pretty cool to do something with him.  Also I would love to do a track with Showtek.  I love playing their records live and they have always been really supportive of my releases!

6.   Electro house has seen a lot of changes in the last year or so, what do you think is coming next?

Yeah there has been a lot of change and very quickly too.  I like how sounds evolve and change, it keeps everything interesting.  I think the next changes are going to be a repeat of older sounds with a modern twist.  I can already hear tracks coming through using sounds from 2006 but with 2014 production skills.  Music and fashion always run in cycles.

7.   What gigs do you have coming up, any plans for touring through the US?

We are currently planning my debut tours in the US this year which I am so excited about.  I love America, I really want to move there one day!  Hopefully I will get back out to countries like India again this year.  That country is amazing, it really blew my mind.  I just got announced on my favourite UK festival, Reading & Leeds Festival.  Last year that was one of the best moments of my career.  The tent was full and all the kids were going mental!  I love seeing crowds go mental at festivals, its the best feeling ever!

8.   You used to produce dubstep a couple of years ago, why did you decide to change over to house music?

I needed a change at that time.  I just wanted to do something different and start fresh.  Also at that time the sound was changing in dubstep and I didn’t really see myself going that way.  I have always made house/electro, so really it was me going back to my roots and exciting myself with new music.  I just want to enjoy what I do and have fun with music.  I want to make music that people dance and rave to at clubs and festivals.  I don’t want rules and boundaries.

9.   What comes next after the Louder EP?

I have some cool collaborations in the pipeline and new music to release in the summer, so keep an eye out!

Tomorrowland sells out BOTH weekends in less than an hour!

February 18, 2014 Dim Mak News Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

Any serious festival goer has been in that situation where 6 of your friends are lined up on 8 different laptops and 10 different smart phones and which ever friend gets through the massive internet ticket cluster f*ck has sworn by oath to buy ALL the tickets for your crew.  So it makes sense that Hunger Games Tomorrowland edition was fought last Saturday(Feb. 16th) and sold out 360,000 tickets in less than an hour. This is the first year the festival is selling so many tickets because it is now 2 weekends.

Tomorrowland is the festival of all festivals, almost like the olympics of all the EDM festivals, so it makes sense for Dim Mak to have such a strong presence and a day long line up of artists. Everyone from Tai, Autoerotique, Carnage, Angger Dimas and Deorro have come out to make the Dim Mak party the best party at Tomorrowland and it’s sister festival TomorrowWorld. Last year at TomorrowWorld, Coone headlined the Hardstyle Stage and Steve Aoki headlined the Main Stage and Dim Mak stage two days in a row. To see what you missed, get motivated to go or feel sad about how you will never be able to afford it… Check out our Tomorrowland and our TomorrowWorld after movies.

Let’s get Uberjak’d

January 9, 2014 Tim Gauthier Interviews, News Tags: , , , , ,

uberjakd logo colorDim Mak Records is proud to welcome our newest artist Uberjak’d to the family! Uberjak’d is an Australian producer, who recently exploded onto the global electronic music scene with his electro-influenced Melbourne Bounce sound. This past year Uberjak’d mixed Australia’s #1 dance compilation Ministry of Sound The Annual and joined the nationwide tour, performed for 15,000 people at the Stereosonic festival, and celebrated his spot as the #1 podcast in Australia on iTunes, beating out Hardwell and Tiësto.

Uberjak’d is hoping to bring the Melbourne Bounce sound to the U.S. with the release of his upcoming EP on Dim Mak Records. Uberjak’d isn’t a stranger to Dim Mak, featuring on the Autoerotique Asphyxiation (Remixes) EP.

 

[highlight style=”default”][highlighttext title=”To find out more about this rising artist check out our exclusive interview!” titlesize=”h6″ subtitle=””][/highlighttext][/highlight]

1.    Hi Uberjak’d, welcome to Dim Mak! We’re excited to have you as part of our family. Can you tell us a bit about why you joined Dim Mak?

Thanks! Pleasure to be part of the family. I have always been a big fan of the label. I see Dim Mak as a label that isn’t afraid to push sounds that are new, fresh, or different from the normal.

2.    Describe your sound. Any artists and/or genres of music that have been particularly influential in your productions?

Melbourne Bounce obviously! I have been hooked on that sound ever since I discovered it while skipping class at uni to listen to music and as well as living in Adelaide. I wasn’t lucky enough to go check out this music in the clubs, so I had to compromise and downloaded the tunes off the Melbourne Bounce forums. At the time I’d heard nothing like this sound. This was the early days of the sound, so like Orkestrated, Kalus, Dean Del were all guys producing this underground, really techno-influenced electro. That was about five or six years ago, way before I even considered DJing myself. So fast forward a couple years and I had established myself as a DJ in my hometown Adelaide. I’d also been playing a few gigs in Melbourne and really wanted to put my own harder electro/rave influence on the Melbourne Sound, and I guess you will hear a lot of that sound on my new EP.

3.    You’ll soon be releasing an EP on Dim Mak followed by a spring U.S. tour. What can you tell us about the EP? How do you hope to impact the dance music scene in the U.S. through this new partnership with Dim Mak?

I’m stoked for this EP. It’s really an Uberjak’d & Friends EP with collaborations with Chardy, Krunk!, and Sarah Bodle supplying some amazing vocals for another. The first track with Sarah Bodle is a bit big room meets techno meets Melbourne. I was inspired in elements by the old anthem and one of my favorite tunes of all time “Stranger To Stability” (Len Faki Podium Mix). Sarah did a great job on the vocals and this is my second track with her, so we have worked together and she has also performed live at some of my shows. The track with Chardy, “All Aboard,” was something we wrote about eight months ago, but have kept it tight and I’m so stoked it’s coming out on this EP. That one is a bit hardstyle, a bit Melbourne. Not sure what it is, but I think that’s why I like it! The track with Krunk!, my boy back in Adelaide, is definitely hardstyle, but we really rip it back in the break and get melodic and chilled, so it’s a bit of a contrast. The final tune, “Static,” is a solo track and is rave vs. Melbourne. I like the riff in it, sort of reminds me of bag pipes. Maybe it’s some of my Scottish blood coming through in that track.

4.    There seems to be a surge of Australian producers taking over electronic music (Flume, Anna Lunoe, Will Sparks, the Stafford Brothers to name a few). What do you think is the reason for this? Do you feel that where you’re from has had an influence on your music in any way?

I think that Australia has always been a place that embraces and pushes forward-thinking sounds, which gives artists the freedom to do something different. I think where you live, more importantly the shows you perform as a DJ, has a huge effect on your sound. As a DJ, I want to make music that the fans at my shows enjoy, and different places always have a different vibe. Thanks to social media and SoundCloud, being so accessible these days and getting your sound out to people has never been easier.

5.     You’ve been at the forefront of the growing Melbourne bounce scene in Australia alongside artists like Will Sparks. Do you think the Melbourne Bounce sound will catch on in the U.S.?

Hahaha! I hope so! I guess if I love this music so much, if Australia loves it this much, then why can’t America or the world? Will Sparks has just returned from his tour and it looks like the reception for him and the sound was really good, so hopefully that’s a sign for good things. I think the great thing about EDM, as it’s known in the U.S., is that it’s about innovation and looking for something fresh. I guess electronic dance music has always been about that, so I hope that people are up for this sound. A funny thing is that when I first started to play Melbourne Bounce outside of Melbourne, there was a track I played at my gigs. I won’t name the artist or the track, but it’s now a bit of an anthem over here. I used to play the track at my gigs and literally people would walk off the dance floor. They didn’t understand it and it was something so different to what they have heard or were used to. About 6-8 months later, people are requesting it on their phones during gigs and they know all the lyrics to it and can’t get enough of the track. So what I’m saying basically is you might not love Melbourne Bounce the first time you hear it…but you will eventually.

 6.    You recently did a remix for Autoerotique’s “Asphyxiation,” which was released on Dim Mak Records this past July. Can you tell us more about that remix? What can you tell us about your remix process?

Yeah, I actually had a lot of fun remixing that one! I guess when approaching a remix, you don’t want to change the essence of what makes that track great. For me, it was those chords and the vocal, so I knew I had to keep them. And then it’s just a matter of adding your flavor to it because that’s why someone would want you to do a remix. Some advice to producers and DJs: If a label asks you to remix in a certain style to fit their remix pack, don’t do it. A remix is about adding your style, find what makes your sound unique and use the shit out of it!

7.    Dream collaborations? Any Dim Mak artists you’d like to collaborate with in the future? A certain Steve perhaps?

Ohh yeah! Of course I would love to collab with the big man! I have a collab with Deorro as well, which started when we were both in Amsterdam for ADE last year, as well as a collab I started with Autoerotique. So maybe keep an ear out for them in 2014.

8.    You recently posted on Facebook, “I think 2014 will be the year of deep house and hard style…” Why do you say this and what’s your take on the future of EDM?

I always say this, but what I mean is not that all DJs will start playing this style, but it will influence what is popular. I think we have already seen the big hardstyle kick thing go crazy, and I think the groove-driven vibe of deep house will somehow start being heard more in different genres. Innovation is what makes music so interesting. A few people have asked me, “Why no Melbourne Bounce??? ” Of course I hope it has a big year for all my boys in Australia. There is so much talent here with guys like J-Trick, Joel Fletcher, Reece Low, Chardy, and SCNDL. I think it’s time we all came over to the US to show you how we do it!

Already featuring a stellar lineup with bass “Legend” Borgore and hip-hop heavyweight Waka Flocka Flame as direct support, with special guest Pharrell Williams (The Neptunes/N.E.R.D.) appearing on select dates, the Aokify America Tour stands as one of the highlights on this year’s touring circuit.

Toronto-based electro producer Autoerotique adds a heavier sound to the mix, best exemplified on the latest track“Play It Again” and the recent Asphyxiation (Remixes) EP, both out now on Dim Mak Records.

The new talent is not the only major tour announcement being made though. A proponent of pro-social causes and a philanthropist in his own right, AOKI’s Steve Aoki Charitable Fund is donating a dollar for every ticket sold throughout the tour to a charity selected by his fans via Facebook. Furthermore, for every year AOKI has been alive, he will match a corresponding $1,000 for a total of $36,000 on the tour. Fans will be encouraged to vote for their chosen charity from a group of four pre-selected organizations, including: American Brain Foundation, committed to curing brain disease; University of Rochester – Memory Care Program, providing diagnosis, treatment, and care of neurodegenerative conditions that affect the elderly and the aging nervous system; Brain Preservation Foundation, evaluating “plastination” and “cryonics,” two ways doctors might inexpensively preserve the brain of a dying person; and Infusio, pushing the fusion of cutting-edge science and the newest developments in complementary medicine placed in a spa-like healing environment. Fans can vote via a dedicated poll on STEVE AOKI’s official Facebook page (www.facebook.com/Steve.Aoki) starting October 9 through November 23. Following the tour, AOKI will hand deliver the check to the chosen charity.

Nobody does up all night DIRTY like the Dim Mak boys at Beatpatrol Festival 2013. In fact, if we were to rate the content of this video according to tit size, we’d say it’s pretty much THE DOUBLE DEEZ. Witness Tai, Deorro, Datsik, Autoerotique, Angger Dimas, South Central, Dirtyphonics, Proxy, Haezer, and the boss man himself Steve Aoki, as they bring the party to Europe, Dim Mak style, in Part I of our Beatpatrol 2013 series. We’re talking vodka flowing like wine, bottles poppin’, hot girls, fire explosions, crowd-surfing, pulsing lights, heavy beats…in the words of Autoerotique, “EDM man, this is all EDM right here.” Erotic Drunken Mayhem? We’ll let you be the judge! Stay tuned for Beatpatrol Part II as the Dim Mak crew takes their 48-hour European all nighter to the next level!
