Before you launch into 2015 full force and let last year’s music fade into oblivion, revisit your favorite reworks of 2014 with Dim Mak’s Greatest Hits of 2014 (Remixes).
The stacked 19-track catalogue whisks listeners off to a nostalgic adventure through remixes of iconic records such as Botnek’s thunderous, Beatport chart-topping take on The Chainsmokers’ worldwide phenomenon “#SELFIE,” Bixel Boys’ unexpected, minimalistic rework of Botnek & 3LAU’s festival monster “Vikings” and Ookay’s 16 bit-inspired revamp of Borgore’s “Last Year.”
Other indelible tracks include Steve Aoki & Autoerotique vs. Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike’s “Feedback (Kill FM Remix)” and Kenna’s “Relations (Justin Martin Remix).”
The compilation is capped off by reupholsterings from underground mavens Darq E Freaker and Penguin Prison, electro house legends Don Diablo and LA Riots, trap kingpins Yellow Claw, Thugli and Kennedy Jones, and of course label boss and party-starting expert Steve Aoki.
Beatport has launched their #BeatportDecade campaign in celebration of it’s 10-year anniversary and invited influential record labels to curate compilations memorializing the digital download network’s history.
Selected to participate in BeatportDecade’s Electro category, Dim Mak has dug through our crates of electronic magic to hand-select a 10-track album featuring one or two releases per year from the last decade.

When I perform, I don’t think about the haters, the Internet trolls, or anyone else. I care about giving the person in front of me something they won’t forget. And that’s why I bring the cake and raft out.
Where do I begin?
I haven’t had a chance to really to speak about all the controversy around my on-stage entertaining: DJing vs. The Cake (which includes the cake, the raft, the champagne, the stage dives…the entertainment part of the show). The haters and the trolls have always used me as an excuse to make fun of something that is out of the ordinary, something that doesn’t necessarily make sense to them. For whatever reason, I have always been a target that people love to attack. From not being American enough as a kid growing up in an all-white neighborhood, to not being indie enough for the die-hard hipsters in my 20s and now today, not being a “real DJ” for the electronic music purists…

Dim Mak mainstay Autoerotique and French producer Mercer have come together to slay their audience with “Murda Dem,” a drum heavy track with some serious bass. Big festival priority, as heard at Tomorrowland! Get ready to feel the rhythm in your bones with this one.
