Dim Mak Presents: Skrillex & Alvin Risk, Live at Dim Mak Studios

Tim Gauthier

“Skrillex’s six night hometown tour began yesterday, when the local boy-done-good held court before a sold out crowd at Cinespace. It might have seemed like an unusual venue choice; he normally plays for thousands at festivals, while Cinespace is an intimate spot where you often catch DJs hanging out at the bar.

But the Hollywood venue — home to Dim Mak’s famed Tuesday night parties — strongly influenced a young Sonny Moore back in the mid-’00s. As he noted last night, without the party and its founder Steve Aoki, there wouldn’t be a Skrillex.”

Last night with Skrillex – LA Weekly at Dim Mak Studios

Tim Gauthier

Another one for the record books- Skrillex (and friends) took over the entire floor plan of Dim Mak Studios, as the kicker to his 6-stop “Mothership” LA-tour. As Skrillex shouted to the swarm of fans, this is his way of giving back to all the clubs he partied at over the years.

LA Weekly was present at Dim Mak Studios, surprising us all with an in depth review of the event:

Better than… Seeing Skrillex at a festival” ~ Liz Ohanesian, LAWeekly

Dim Mak Studios Voted Top “Club Party” of 2011

Tim Gauthier

L.A. Weekly has presented us with a great year-end update: We have been elected as one-of-the top club parties in Los Angeles for 2011!!! Ranked in at number 5, here is what their staff had to say about our weekly event:

“Haters will hate, especially when it comes to successful DJs and their long-running “hipster” haps. Say what you will about Steve Aoki, he’s done something very, very right with his Dim Mak empire. We’ve been writing about the guy since well before he started his popular Tuesday night at Cinespace, and at the height of its popularity, too. Believe that his enthusiasm for music and people is 100% real, not douchey. Dim Mak Studios took over the back room at Cinespace last year, and continues to bring out the biggest names in rock and electronic music.”

For you L.A. Natives, be sure to check out our weekly event, Dim Mak Studios, hosted every Tuesday off Hollywood Blvd. After 7 strong years, carrying a notable history of major headlining and supporting acts like Daft Punk, Lady Gaga, Kanye West, Lil Jon, and Justice, we are only setting our paces to hosting your most memorable night.

Araab Muzik Live At Dim Mak Studios 06.28.11

Tim Gauthier

AraabMUZIK, of Hip Hop’s infamous Dipset crew, came to Dim Mak Studios last Tuesday and brought his MPC with him. The “King of the MPC,” as some have come to champion him as, did not disappoint. He tweaked his set for a non-Hip Hop crowd and all in attendance swayed between dancing and observing in awe as he broke down tracks from dubstep kingpins Rusko and Flux Pavillion. Check out the video below to see what I mean…

Ole Smoky Moonshine

Tim Gauthier

How many others think we should offer this fine brew at Dim Mak Studios?
Just imagine getting bottle service and them bringing out a bottle of Ole Smoky Moonshine…Pretty awesome if you ask me.
 
50% ALC./VOL (100 PROOF) · 750 ML · MOUNTAIN MADE · 100 YEAR OLD RECIPE
Bottled by Ole Smoky Distillery, LLC · Gatlinburg, Tennessee
 
“Our families were among the early settlers of the Smoky Mountains – they came to the Smokies through Virginia and North Carolina. They honed the art of whiskey making in order to survive during tough economic times. Most families from this area share a history of a family member making, running or selling whiskey. Today, the true moonshiners and bootleggers still consider it taboo to tell stories or brag about moonshine glory. Because of the consequences, talking about your craft or trade was something you just didn’t do.”
