Get ready to set your equipment ablaze, producers! Beatport Play & Dim Mak is hosting a REMIX CONTEST with “The Fire” from Felix Cartal & Clockwork (ft Madame Buttons) as your ignition. Now is your chance to take this already smoking hot jam and turn it into your own simmering masterpiece. The winning remixer will take home iZotope’s Ozone 5, Stutter Edit, some goodies from Beatport and a release on Dim Mak Records. You’ve got until July 1st to get your submissions in, so throw away your fire extinguisher and get those buttons burning!
By now, I’m sure you’ve fallen in love with Felix Cartal and Autoerotique’s “The Alarm” (and if you haven’t, then shame on you). Whether you have or have not, prepare yourself to get stoked all over again because it’s been remixed, giving the already vibrant track three fresh new perspectives. The Erick Rincon 8Ball Bootleg is, in my humble opinion, the most eclectic; it almost has the vibes of a party in Cuba experiencing an air raid. With the Keys N Krates rendition, expect bass for days and the feeling of chills creeping down your fist pumping arms. Different still is the Charlie Darker remix, which lends a throwback early house music experience while maintaining the hyperactivity of the original track. It’s quite an accomplishment to take a piece that is already a mega anthem in its own right and turn it into a whole different work of art, but these three producers did just that and did it remarkably well.

Dim Mak made it’s way to Miami for 2013’s WMC/MMW and Ultra Music Festival. Along with Steve Aoki‘s set at UMF, Dim Mak hosted two showcases welcoming two dream come true line ups at Raleigh Hotel and Story.
Upon landing in Miami, we headed straight to the We’re All Friends! Party featuring 8 labels including Mad Decent, WeDIdIt, Smog, and more.
Story nightclub hosted our sold out, “Steve Aoki & Friends: Up All Night” party. Our line up kept the night alive and full of energy with sets from Nervo, Dirtyphonics, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Clockwork, Dan Sena, Felix Cartal, AutoErotique, and Gareth Emery. Along with these sets Calvin Harris and Michael Phelps made their way out for the night to support.
Be on the look out for “Dim Mak Invades Miami – Part 2”.

Some of the biggest tracks on Dim Mak have been the result of collaborations while on tour including Phat Brahms, Madness, and No Beef. Felix Cartal & Clockwork are keeping the tradition alive with their latest release, “The Fire.”
A year ago, the duo found themselves collaborating on the Different Faces Tour which resulted in the creation of “The Fire”. After perfecting the track the guys then shipped it off to Madame Buttons who tied it together with her feverish vocals.
The production brings out the best of Felix Cartal and Clockwork, combining their talents to produce the ultimate dance track. Just in time for Summer, “The Fire” will be sure to heat up any room with its big house sound and catchy lyrics.

Hear that? That rumbling coming from your speakers? WHAT IS IT? It’s like that scene in Jurassic Park where the T-Rex is coming and the water in the car is vibrating with the footsteps… only this time, it’s something far bigger than an oversized lizard. It’s the latest single from Felix Cartal, and this time he’s bringing Clockwork along for the ride! Felix released a teaser for the track, entitled “The Fire (feat. Madame Buttons)”, and it will be yours to own and love and cherish on May 14th. May you have many happy years together with this massive tune, out soon on Dim Mak Records!
There is no such thing as ordinary in the world of Steve Aoki, especially when it comes time to interview Dim Mak Artists. This fact rings especially true for the 22nd episode of AOKI FILES Miami Edition where Steve talks to Felix Cartal and AutoErotique and tries to get a word in edgewise.
The two Canadian producers, who recently collaborated on the completely insane track “The Alarm”, discuss what it would be like if they did a country-wide tour together (it involves a small hatchback) and who deserves the credit for making the phenomenal “The Alarm” (Felix is pretty sure he deserves all the credit). Felix and Keith both drop some fresh-out-the-oven information about new tracks coming up as, well as upcoming collaborations with other huge names in the game. One thing is for sure, when these two mega-producers get together with an extremely excited Aoki, the outcome is sure to make you do some ball grabbing of your own.
Felix Cartal has gone global in a whole new way! The Deichmann Group, a shoe company based out of Germany, has used Felix Cartal’s “Tonight” feat Maja Ivarsson in their spring collection campaign. The campaign video, which you can watch below, shows fashion-forward men and women having crazy good times to the stunningly catchy “Tonight”. This track has crossed over from club favorite to international commercial status; now let’s just hope those shoes can handle the good vibrations of festival season! Glückwünsche, Felix!
