The final day of the Electric Zoo festival in New York has been cancelled. This includes Steve Aoki’s performance and the entire Dim Mak stage. Our heartfelt condolences go out to the friends and families of the two concertgoers who lost their lives. Our thoughts remain with those still hospitalized. This is a weekend of celebration across America, and we urge our community to take a moment and reflect on the safety of both themselves and those around them.
With Electric Zoo right around the corner, it’s safe to say that thousands of fans are getting amped up and ready to dance the night away in New York, and the attention this festival is receiving isn’t limited to just the main stage attractions, as proven by HUFFINGTON POST‘s spotlight on the Dim Mak Records stage! Pointing out that “loyal fans…will be flocking to the Dim Mak Records stage”, HuffPost writer Kia Makarechi fired questions at head honcho Steve Aoki; getting to the bottom of what fans can expect from the Dim Mak stage as well as what’s coming up in the next year for Dim Mak Records (spoiler alert: Steve has BIG plans for those smart enough to be at the DM stage!). Read the full interview HERE and rave on you crazy diamonds!
[hr] Steve Aoki and his label, Dim Mak, are gearing up for a huge Electric Zoo weekend in New York, and the DJ-producer is getting his mind right with this wild “Electric Zoo 2013” mix. Aoki keeps hard-hitting drops a priority, but offers dancers a chance to catch their breath with a set of varied dynamics and tempo changes. Aoki’s pummeling remix of Dirtyphonics‘ “No Stopping Us” rolls into the shifty, disorienting piano samples of Proxy’s “9000.” Later, Showtek’s titanic elastic bounce on “Slow Down” transforms into the echoing claps and glimmering synth chimes on Etienne De Crecy‘s remix of Yolanda Be Cool’s “Sweat Naked.” Aoki makes sure the fun comes in all shapes and sizes.
Dim Mak made its way to Electric Zoo this past Labor Day taking over the River Stage Saturday, September 1 with sets Brass Fergie, Mustard Pimp, Autoerotique, Angger Dimas, Felix Cartal, Dirtyphonics, 12th Planet, Kill The Noise, Datsik, and Steve Aoki. Along with our take over, some of our other favorites performed through out the three-day festival including Peacetreaty, The Bloody Beetroots, Clockwork, Alvin Risk, and more! See the full set on the Dim Mak Live Facebook Page.
