Battle of the Beats: Dirtyphonics vs Clockwork – Last Chance (Remixes)

December 23, 2013 Tim Gauthier Music Tags: , ,

battle-of-the-beats-no-week

Battle of the Beats is a feature from Dancing Astronaut that pits two remixes against one another to determine which production made better use of the original. With remix packages growing in length and increasing in frequency, the number of reworked tracks has skyrocketed. After wading through the archives, we are opening it up to our readers to weigh in on whose rendition takes the proverbial cake.

[one_half]

Kaskade & Project 46 – Last Chance (Dirtyphonics remix)

France’s Dirtyphonics make good on their name with their remix of Kaskade and Project 46′s uplifting Atmosphere collab. Ratcheting the tune from 128 to 140 bpm, the quartet beef up the bassline while modifying the melody into something a tad more face-melting. Supporting the vocals but snipping away a few refrains, the remix instead highlights a rebuilt dub framework complete with deep dips and a heavy dose of reverb. Only the second Ultra outing for the Dim Mak regulars, the Dirtyphonics remix of “Last Chance” demonstrates their versatility.


[/one_half]
[one_half_last]

Kaskade & Project 46 – Last Chance (Clockwork remix)

Debuted at EDC Las Vegas, Clockwork‘s remix of the collab wastes no time getting to the punchline. An electro take on the euphoric tune, the track utilizes the pounding tribal-esque percussion popularized at festival grounds around the world this summer. Structured as a back and forth between vocal and vertigo-inducing builds, the tune also engages in a bit of piano chord play that allows the original’s plucky bridge to peek through. Spanning several genres while consistently hitting the crowd-appeal note, Clockwork’s rework has celebrated its success with a spot on the Beatport Top 100.

So whose “Last Chance” do you give a second chance to?

hard-dance-top-100

Dim Mak Records has taken over the Beatport Hard Dance Chart with three of our newest releases in the Top 10. Dirtyphonics’ October release of “Hanging on Me” (Borgore & Ookay Remix) is reigning at #1 followed by Dim Mak’s first hardstyle producer Coone. Both of Coone’s latest singles “Our Fairytale (Theme Of Tomorrow 2013)” feat. Chris Madin and “Zombie Killer” feat. Kritikal are placed side by side at #6 and #7, respectively. Listen to these tracks below and you’ll know why Dim Mak’s hardest records are dominating the charts!

It’s remix season! Dirtyphonics – Hanging On Me ft. Liela Moss (Kastle Remix)

It seems like producing a super legit remix of a DIRTYPHONICS track is like a right of passage only bestowed upon the most gifted of music makers, as witnessed by Kastle’s remix Dirtyphonics“Hanging On Me”; laid back and fresh, “Hanging on Me (Kastle Remix)” is like a breath of clean air on this #dirty track. Kastle, who is known for infusing the sounds of R&B with edgier dubstep influences, sheds a whole new light with his chilled out rendition.

New Borgore and Ookay remix for Dirtyphonics’ ‘Hanging On Me’

September 26, 2013 Nikki Music Tags: , , , , , , ,

borgookay

When it comes to heavy bass, haunting lyrics belted out with soaring vocals, dirty beats, and overall badassery…who do you turn to? If you didn’t answer DIRTYPHONICS, then you are wrong and need to reevaluate your life/music situation. The only way to make a DIRTYPHONICS song even dirtier is to add the talents of the cake lovin’ Borgore and trap producer extraordinaire Ookay; the results of such a collaboration can be heard in the Hardstyle-inspired remix these two heavy hitters produced on the Dirtyphonics track “Hanging On Me”. Full of subtle drops and vibey bass, “Hanging on Me (Borgore & Ookay remix)” is sexy and fun, which is just what we’d expect from a fusion of all this talent in one place.

[SPIN Premiere] KASTLE Wrings a Bubbly 2-Step Remix out of Dirtyphonics’ Brutal ‘Hanging on Me’

September 26, 2013 Tim Gauthier Music, News Tags: , , , ,

130926-dirtyphonics-kastle (1)

Is there any sound so tough that a U.K. garage refix can’t turn into something pliable and seductive? Apparently, not, at least judging from the Los Angeles producer Kastle’s remix of “Hanging on Me,” a new song from the French quartet Dirtyphonics. Their recent singles have typically trod the line between headbanging and Ed Banging: “No Stopping Us,” featuring Foreign Beggars, was hip-house via Alice in Chains, while “Walk in the Fire” was forged of blast beats and chugging metal guitars. “Hanging on Me” is similar, marrying Master of Puppets-inspired twinned leads to a shuddering, dubsteppy cadence and topping it off with vocals from the Duke Spirit’s Liela Moss, who here sounds, improbably but intriguingly, a little like Cat Power imitating Ozzy Osbourne. In Kastle’s hands, though, the tune flashes back to 2-step’s glory days, complete with bouncy organ bass line and synths as bubbly as a freshly uncorked bottle of Dom. In contrast to 2-step’s habit of making chipmunks out of its singers, he plays Moss’ vocals relatively straight, save for a judicious bit of glottal chopping, but he strays from convention by briefly flipping the groove into a brittle triplet rhythm that’s halfway between trap and Schaffel. If you’ve ever dreamed of a Lex Luger/Superpitcher collaboration, here’s the next best thing. (via SPIN)

Steve Aoki announces additional Dim Mak support acts for Aokify America Tour!

September 19, 2013 Tim Gauthier News Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

As he prepares to hit the road once again this fall, Grammy-nominated international producer/DJ and electronic dance music entrepreneur STEVE AOKI has announced additional support acts for his upcoming Aokify America Tour. For the tour, AOKI has drafted an elite group of artists from the DIM MAK roster—the independent record label, events and lifestyle company, and apparel line he founded in 1996 and presenting partner of the tour—including Felix Cartal, Autoerotique, Dirtyphonics, Keys N Krates, Garmiani, Deorro, Rune RK, and Botnek as well as a new, specially designed production from performer Kryoman entitled HEX3D. 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. Tickets for the Aokify America Tour are on sale now: aokifyamerica.com.

Screen Shot 2013-09-19 at 11.20.06 AMThe newly confirmed rotating talent on the Aokify America Tour adds a diverse array of artists spanning a wide spectrum of electronic music styles. Coming off his most successful release to date with the Past, Present, Felix EP on Dim Mak Records—praised by ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT and BILLBOARD.COM, who called featured track New Scene” “one of the best dance recordings of the year”—Felix Cartal brings his signature electro house sounds. 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. Featured on AOKI’s Deadmeat Tour in 2012, French electronic dance music quartet DIRTYPHONICS return with their trademark heavy bass heard on their debut full-length album Irreverence and the corresponding No Stopping Us (Remixes) EP, both available now on Dim Mak Records. Dubbed “EDM’s hottest live band” by BILLBOARD.COM and featured by USA Today, Toronto-based live electronic outfit Keys N Krates recently released their SOLOW EP on Dim Mak Records, which highlights their trap-tinged electronic/hip-hop hybrid sound. Also featured on the tour are producers GarmianiDeorro, house/techno artist Rune RK, and production/DJ duo Botnek. Additionally, performer Kryoman introduces his innovative production setup HEX3D on the Aokify America Tour, which pushes the boundaries of live, audiovisual performance art.

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.

Meanwhile, STEVE AOKI is dominating the music world with the massive Linkin Parkcollaboration “A Light That Never Comes,” out now on Warner Bros. Records, and“Boneless,” a collaboration with Chris Lake and Tujamo (Ultra Music), which hit #1on Beatport.

Dirtyphonics – IRREVERENCE Tour – Like Animals (Episode 3)

June 3, 2013 Nikki Video Tags: , , , ,

Being a native Texan, I’m stoked to present DIRTYPHONICS and their band of misfits as they take on three major Texas cities in the IRREVERENCE TOUR “Like Animals Episode 3” video. Making stops in Houston, Dallas, and Austin, the DIRTY boys wreck shop with loads of energy, confetti, stage dives, booby stamping, sensual shower scenes, stuffing people into lockers, and the sighting of a Texas staple…a “treadmill” (or as it is more formerly called, a windmill). Featuring tracks off the monumental “IRREVERENCE” album with footage that makes me green with envy for missing it, this episode is full of what makes Texas weird and makes the producers we love #DIRTY. Check out the previous two episodes from this epic nationwide tour and keep your eyes open for the next brilliant video from the DIRTYPHONICS “IRREVERENCE” tour.

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’s Dirtyphonics and Showtek top Beatport charts!

April 2, 2013 Tim Gauthier News Tags: , , , , ,

I think we need to have a moment of silence, out of respect for the Beatport charts that are getting slayed by Dim Mak artists!

6799994It was only five short days ago when we last heard about SHOWTEK storming the Beatport charts, and now they’re taking it to a whole new level as “Slow Down” sits at the #1 spot on the Electro House Top 100! It’s almost like they knew it would be ironic to name such an impossibly good track “Slow Down” when they have no intentions of doing so.

And that’s not all, folks. Nope. Do not adjust your computer screen even though what you’re about to read may seem highly badass… I assure you that this is real life.

dm397Those filthy DIRTYPHONICS guys have earned the coveted #1 spot on Electro House Top 100 Releases with the gnarly sounds from “IRREVERENCE”. With ten unprecedented and unique tracks, “IRREVERENCE” is a mighty force to reckon with and has taken its rightful spot at the very tippy-top of this chart. Oh, and guess who else is sitting high and mighty on the Electro House Top 100 Releases? It’s SHOWTEK at #5 with their “Crunk/Slow Down” EP!

I’ll tell you what; it does the heart and the ears good to see these hard working and uber talented artists from Dim Mak Records kick so much butt. Keep up the good work Showtek and Dirtyphonics, we’ll keep dancing, and the charts will continue to bow down.

Consequence of Sound – Album Review: Dirtyphonics – Irreverence

April 1, 2013 Tim Gauthier Music, News Tags: , , , ,

The beginning of Irreverence dabbles in intricate melodic piano ambiance that one may expect from a historic four-piece of classically trained French gentlemen – so it’s mildly shocking to know that Dirtyphonics first honed their production skills with metal riffs. After teasing bass fanatics with more than a half-decade spent tempo-shifting club bangers from the Bloody Beetroots (“Warp”) to Benny Benassi (“Electroman”) and Krewella (“Killin’ it”), the collective builds the initial drop of their debut LP across nearly five minutes and two tracks — the classical arrangement of ”Prelude (White)”, and the epic march of “Prelude (Black)” — before finally rewarding fans with a devastating rolling bass release.

Similar to Korn’s The Path of Totality, Irreverence fuses the brutality associated with late-’90s nu-metal and current bass-music. Unlike their predecessors, “Los Angeles”, which features fellow European electro-metal outfit Modestep, and “Walk in the Fire” are an earnest bridge between the sound of their youths toward today’s obsession with bass wobbles and not a feeble attempt to maintain relevancy…

I like things that are shredded. Shredded cheese? Legitimately delicious on everything. Shredder from TMNT? A sufficiently spine tingling villain with a dislike for pizza loving turtles. But you know what I love more than both of those things combined? The way Dirtyphonics’ “IRREVERANCE” is shredding on numerous BEATPORT charts right now!

Top 100 Release: #8
Drum & Bass Top 100 Releases: #2
Dubstep Top 100 Releases: #2
Electro House Top 100 Releases: #2

With tracks like “Chaos” and “No Stopping Us” featuring Foreign Beggars, it’s clear that this album is going to continue to impress and climb charts all across the board. “IRREVERANCE” stands as a testament to old and new listeners alike that Dirtyphonics are increasingly great at making music that takes no prisoners, just leaves a trail of #dirty fans ready for more heart pounding, crowd pleasing, and game changing bangers.

#DimMakDIY – Featuring Lacy (Dirtyphonics Edition)

Its not too uncommon to see women shaving their heads now a days. Natalie Portman rocked it, So did Amber Rose, and even with her baby bump she still looks bomb. It can be considered a bold statement and often prominently displays confidence. I mean yeah, you might end up going crazy and try to stab people with an umbrella but unless you’re like that you should be fine. Anyways, our girlfriend Lacy is one of these women, and if you’ve spotted her at any of our events, you can already tell she brings the party and turns hairy heads. She was such a sweetheart and asked that I would photograph her going all out no clipper guard for what turned out to be a great evening of shooting some awesome photos. After all the the hair was gone (off her head and all over the floor and sink), and still excited to keep cutting, she turned the scissors on one of our new Dirtyphonics tees and with a little DIY, went custom for the night. We strongly encourage this behavior so show us your best DIY custom Dim Mak merch!

Out Now: Dirtyphonics – Walk In The Fire EP

February 12, 2013 Tim Gauthier Music Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Today French artists Dirtyphonics released the “Walk In The Fire” single on Dim Mak Records. “Walk In The Fire” is part of a three-song EP package including remixes by Schoolboy and Culprate.

[lightbox url=”http://itun.es/i6J22Hm” width=”1000″ height=”600″ iframe=”true”][/lightbox] [lightbox url=”http://btprt.dj/XyCwgC” width=”1000″ height=”600″ iframe=”true”][/lightbox] [lightbox url=”http://spoti.fi/11E1vrf” width=”1000″ height=”600″ iframe=”true”][/lightbox] [lightbox url=”http://www.youtube.com/embed/videoseries?list=PLP3NmVJWzd3MdR9oSdZnToHl5ASJmvDCU&hl=en_US” width=”960″ height=”540″ iframe=”true”][/lightbox]

“Walk In The Fire” is metal/drum & bass track which combines the best of two worlds. “Walk in the Fire” kicks off with a guttural guitar grind before coalescing into an electro dubstep break fueled by screams and wild production. Setting the dance floor ablaze like never before, it injects a healthy helping of heavy metal intensity into a drum n’ bass dubstep monster that claws right out of the box. This pure and raw track consists full of energy which will give you a boost for the entire day and night. It will both satisfy the metal- and dub-heads out there, so if you have a friend that’s not fully convinced of the power of electronic music, this track might give them the little boost they need. Schoolboy comes with a Knife Party-like electro remix and Culprate makes an intense dubstep version out of it.

The EP release is the latest release before their long-awaited Full Length “Irreverrence” comes out on Dim Mak Records on March 19th.

Following the release of “Irreverence”, Dirtyphonics will embark on their North American “Irreverence Tour.” Launching March 27 in Vancouver, the 30+ date tour will take them through many major markets as well as anticipated performances at this year’s Coachella where they will perform both weekends Sunday, April 14 and Sunday, April 21. Their live show is a full-on sensory experience more akin to seeing your favorite band than a typical EDM act. They bring a level of energy that’s rare in modern music. A limited amount of tickets for all upcoming US dates are immediately available for purchase direct from Dirtyphonics at: http://dirtyphonics.frontgatetickets.com
