What happens when you pair the chief of Dim Mak Records with one half of Dirtyphonics during Ultra Music Festival? The most recent episode of AOKI FILES, of course! Taking time out of pool parties, stage diving, and epic sets during Ultra, Steve took Charly and Pitchin poolside to talk about their latest release, IRREVERENCE, and the massive Irreverence Tour that kicked off March 27th.
As if the recent release of the game changing album IRREVERENCE wasn’t mind blowing enough, the French quartet kicks off a three month bus tour spanning the United States and Canada, including stops at both weekends of Coachella. Not only will they make it raver-rain with the sensational tracks from IRREVERENCE, they are also revealing brand spankin’ new stage production that is sure to accentuate their already striking, unforgettable sounds.
If you’re looking to have your ear drums blasted and your mind electrified this summer, the IRREVERENCE TOUR is a damn good place to start. Find your city below and prepare in advance to call in to work or school too #dirty to function.
The EDM Network, purveyors of all the best in dubstep, drum and bass, glitch hop, moombahton, house, and electro beats, have shown some serious affection for Dim Mak‘s own pride and joy, Dirtyphonics. This group of four highly talented producers have been absolutely smashing it on the live touring circuit, and their full length Irreverance release has garnered the attention of music lovers everywhere. Two tracks off the album, “The Mechanism” and “Hanging On Me” have recently been featured on The EDM Network‘s sites, GlitchHop.net and Dubstep.net, respectively. Be sure to check out what they have to say about the group that has been challenging and reworking traditional conceptions of these different genres, and don’t forget to check out their tour schedule to see if they’ll be making a stop at a city near you!
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!
As of today, here is where “IRREVERANCE” stands in the illustrious Beatport charts: 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.
Dim Mak Records artists are at it once again! Just in time for your weekend chaos, TrackItDowns O4TW for the weekend of March 21st has been released with 50 tunes guaranteed to make your life feel like some super cool ninja/dance party movie. On the list, you’ll find Dim Mak’s very own DIRTYPHONICS with the track “Los Angeles” (feat. Modestep), and the new JIDAX track “Phenomena”.
The Dirtyphonics track featured on this fresh-out-the-oven bundle is off the debut of “Irreverence”, which was released Tuesday; this album is full of surprises that will leave you feeling as though you’ve been transported into an alternate universe where Mozart found his love of bass. “Los Angeles” is homage to a city infamous for a nightlife that makes all other cities look like the set of Golden Girls. An infectious beat paired with haunting vocals, Dirtyphonics “Los Angeles” is one to play with the windows down. In fact, if you’re going to bump the “Irreverence” album (and I know you will), it’d be safe to just go ahead and have your car windows removed and send out a memo to the neighbors, because things are getting louder and dirtier than ever before.
Also on the TrackItDown’s O4TW is JIDAX’s “Phenomena”, off of the EP released Tuesday under the same name. “Phenomena” starts off slow and steady and builds into a rambunctious track, reminiscent of the early days house music. I dare you to listen to this jam without doing that little shoulder twitch/head bob dance thing we all do when we listen to solid anthems. You know the one. “Phenomena” serves as a reminder that the Parisian duo have staying power in the world of dance.
Congrats to these Dim Mak Records mainstays on making the TrackItDown list this weekend! High fives all around.
Dim Mak stays ahead of the music curve by enlisting Dirtyphonics’ debut Irreverence — thus bass-jumping over it completely. Dirtyphoncs gives the sounds of jump-up-metal-bass a digital Botox injection, freezing these tunes into your aural memory forever. The album breaks bass music’s backbone and flips genres the bird.
Dirtyphonics aren’t content to sit still and ride one wave. Instead, their new album Irreverence encompasses the whole spectrum of bass music. Packing undeniable and unbridled dance floor power, there’s a heavy mix of dubstep, drum n’ bass, electro, and even more surprises. However, it’s all undeniably and unequivocally “Dirty”. 2013 is going to be a very #DIRTY year, and everybody’s welcome to play…
In honor of their North American “Irreverance Tour”, which kicks off March 27th in Vancouver, Dirtyphonics has implemented a whole new level of stage production that is sure to wholly captivate their audience. The French group–consisting of Charly, Thomas, Pho and Pitchin–has penned a new playbook in the electronic dance music genre, merging heavy bass music, drum n’ bass, dubstep and electro with grimy energy to boot. Their latest EP “Walk Into The Fire” is a testament to their very palpable versatility and has already given fans a taste of what their live experience will convey. Their new, state-of-the art stage setup, which they call “The Crown”, is nothing short of a full-blown visual arousal that will blow your socks off.

Every year, Miami hosts one of the biggest weeks in electronic music alongside Ultra Music Festival, the Winter Music Conference/ Miami Music Week. In our latest video installment we’d like to invite you to tag along with Ashley and Kimbo in their adventure to last years Dim Mak x Obey The Kitty Pool Party at WMC. Watch as these two West Coast girls party on with cameos from Steve Aoki, PeaceTreaty, Dirtyphonics, R3hab, Lil Jon, Tommy Gunz, and more.
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!
The forthcoming debut album from Dirtyphonics, Irreverence, is out March 19th on Dim Mak Records. Following this release, Dirtyphonics will embark on their North American “Irreverence Tour” with its first stop on March 27th in Vancouver. The tour will span over 30 dates and will propel them through many major markets as well as anticipated performances such as this year’s Coachella Festival in Indio, California. In order to reward their devoted and most engaging fans, Dirtyphonics has opened up a contest that will provide 30 lucky winners with a chance to catch them live. Simply click the link that follows and enter the contest via Facebook to secure your chance to witness what will be nothing short of a full-blown sensory experience.
“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.
