Garmiani comes from a versatile background, production-wise. This man puts all his influences into one big blender and out comes his definition of dance music. You can hear it in “Dance Motherfucker” with the saxophone, the baile funk influences and the “Dance Motherfucker” voice sample, curtesy of Garmiani himself. Take that and add the epic chord play and big vocals combined with the groovy and huge drop of “Behind You (Rumble)”, and you have “Rumble”, a solid mini EP.
Deorro, electro house’s rising star, is “elevating” his way to the top of the Beatport charts with his new EP Elevation, released on April 23, 2013 on Dim Mak Records, sitting in the hot seat at number one. The LA native continues to fuse progressive elements with funky electro dutch flavor to produce the signature sound of his electrifying bangers. It’s no doubt this Soundcloud sensation has gained heavy support from big names like Steve Aoki, Laidback Luke, Tiesto, Kaskade, Afrojack, Chuckie, Sidney Samson, and many more. Grab your copy of the Elevation EP and let your ears get “elevated” to another level!
After picking up their relationship with Dim Mak earlier this year releasing the “Unicorn” EP, Sound of Stereo is back with a new EP to hit the summer season!
Taking the next step in showing their diversity, Sound of Stereo is coming with a new 2 track EP called “ORIGIN/TERMINAL”
ORIGIN was created during one of the rehearsals of Sound of Stereo’s liveshow, which they preformed during 2012. With an edgy moog sound and a catchy melody, the track stood out in the live set ever since the first time it’s been played. It worked so well that the track was regulary used as an encore and people left humming the lead melody.
But it didn’t end there, they wanted to take the track to the next level. so they teamed up with with the guys from Teddiedrum, an infamous Belgian Synthpop band extraordinair band to create an great vocal version of ORIGIN (ONE ON ONE)
TERMINAL is a big summer feelgood track with a great melody and a strong drop. Made to hit the sun overflown festival stages tested and tuned for effectivity and instant feel good!

“Here’s an EP containing different sounds, each song sounding completely different from the last. I tired to tie together the elements of Drumstep, with House, Dutch, trance sounds, and heavy electro sounds at a slowed down tempo, creating moombahcore. I’ve included a few of my students to be part of this EP. Vocalists Pasha,Tess Marie, and producer Zoo Funktion. I’m excited to show you what I have put together!” – Deorro
Let’s imagine that you’re going through your music collection and you’re finding that it needs more legitimate, bass thumping, shiver-inducing, hyphy trap. Where do you turn to find music that meets such high expectations? Dim Mak Records, of course! We’re here to save the day with the release of Will Bailey and Poisound’s EP “BLAZIN”. Hailing from Spain and the UK, the combination of Will Bailey and Poisound have created three new bombs for the dance floor that will trap you in. Staying true to their unique styles, but maintaining a sense of unity, the EP delivers a blazing sound from the duo; you can be certain that the tracks from this electrifying EP will be blazin’ up the charts for the rest of the year.
Bot is of the future. Half man, half-machine; fully Italian. Exiled in West London, locked in the studio since departing legendary duo Crookers, Bot (his creators named him Andrea Fratangelo) has disassembled any expectations and rebuilt his sound for 2018. Futuristic techno and unorthodox club rhythms are welded with hip hop influences, and a nod to the sounds and sprit of classic house. What we have here folks, is the new tomorrow.
SonicC, the young prodigy behind the mind bending “Stickin” is all grown up now. “Hades” takes you on a journey into a devilish banger showcasing his trademark intense buildups and drops. “Pulse” continues the descent into the underworld with an evil bassline and huge buildups that only leave you wanting more. “Androids on Acid” wraps up the EP with a taste of old school house and a drop that can not be ignored.
Remember the days when dance music was a little chill, a little vibey, a little relaxed? The kind of music that sounded perfect coming from your computer speakers as you stayed up late to do your homework, and just as perfect coming from your car speakers while you cruised your city at dusk? It could be played loud, but wasn’t so nuts that your mom would inform you that you’d be deaf by thirty if you didn’t turn that racket down. There’s a fine line between noise for the sake of noise and perfection at its purest, and at Dim Mak Records, we strive to bring you the latter.
That’s exactly the case with the release of “The Wanderer”, brought to your ear holes by Romanthony vs. Kevin McKay. A sound harking back to the early days of dance, but with modern twists and turns that are sure to get you hella amped, “The Wanderer” is a subtle yet undeniably catchy tune that comes packing heat. While the original track is more laid back, the remixes grow increasingly more intense as you go through the EP, and each version of the song showcases a unique turn on an already golden original sound. Turn up the volume, sit back and relax, and let the summer of 2013 roll in on the back of “The Wanderer”.

“Eternity EP is a conscious musical progression for me. The sound is much more refined than the previous Candy Floss Art Capitalist EP from 2011, but still gritty. I’m reaching back and infusing the sounds that got me excited about music in the first place, like punk, hardcore, and rock. Above all, it’s a small peek into what’s in store for 2013.” – Dan Sena

‘Crunk’ and ‘Slow Down’ are masterworks in varied and skilled production. ‘Crunk’ is an all-out high-octane jump house anthem and ‘Slow Down’ a heavy progressive track with a trance inspired melody. Both are so fully charged with filthy bass, piercing synths and huge vocals that they will have you cranking up the speed dial until you blow your speakers!
Never a pair to be tied down into any one field, these two mammoth records marks their musical transition and continued journey through the world of electronic dance music. They cite and utilise influences from rock and hip-hop to house and euphoria. This all combines in the Showtek way to create their unique sound!
‘Slow Down’ is not a phrase commonly used in Showtek’s dictionary. On only the eve of 2013, ‘Hey!’ was unleashed to the world and was met with the ravest reviews from fans and specialists all over the world. In a heartbeat, they then began one of the greatest podcasts in the electronic domain, propelling the Dutch brothers straight to the US – stunning fans from the East to the West. Whilst wowing overseas however, the two have held a special place for home fans that have shown continued support for their ground breaking Justin Prime collaboration. Keeping a firm position at No.5 in the Dutch Top 40, Showtek are rapidly becoming one of the greatest musical exports from the Netherlands and showing the rest of the world exactly why!
