NY Post Writes About Dim Mak’s Sold Out WMC Pool Party…

Tim Gauthier

“Too many DJs. No, really, way too many DJs.”

… I think the right amount was applied here. Miami really jumped off in a big way for Dim Mak. After the first official party hosted at Mansion, with guest performers including the boss-man Steve Aoki, Datsik, Joachim Garraud, Felix Cartal, Dirtyphonics, and many many many more, we decided to drag out the night into an all-day pool party, hosted at Dream Hotel.

Sidney Samson, R3hab, Joachim Garraud, Felix Cartal, Alvin Risk, and others joined Steve Aoki while he literally turned a swanky pool-club into a mini Ultra Fest-

“We popped by the Dim Mak party at the Dream South Beach’s Highbar just in time to randomly run into XS co-owner Jesse Waits, who was holding court with DJs including R3hab and Steve Aoki. XS is part of Steve Wynn’s collection of Las Vegas nightclubs, and Wynn made a monster announcement earlier in the week about 34 exclusive DJ residencies, including Tiesto, David Guetta, Calvin Harris, Skrillex and Swedish House Mafia’s Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso. Wynn, no doubt, is one of the largest forces financing the DJ craze in America. Vegas, in general, is responsible for keeping so many of the biggest international DJs well-fed. Both Wynn and the group behind Vegas clubs Marquee, Tao and Lavo (which ran the VIP tables at the Ultra Music Festival) flew huge banners above the beach to remind visitors of that.

Aoki jumped into the DJ booth and was soon joined by Lil Jon. Aoki took off his shirt, climbed into an inflatable raft, got thrown in the pool and jumped back into the booth, soaked. S.S. Aoki fans were delighted. Not long after, Afrojack (who brought girlfriend Paris Hilton) joined Aoki in the booth.”

Joachim Garraud & Alesia – Hillside West
 
How Joachim Garraud & Alesia met?! It’s actually the first question that everybody is asking all the time!
Actually the story is short and funny! Alesia contacted Joachim for remixing one of Joachim’s tracks. Joachim was so enthusiastic of what ALESIA did on his track that he asked them back to work on some music together.

They locked themselves in a studio for several months and gave birth to this very exciting new project called “HILLSIDE WEST”!

This album is made up of 7 original tracks, including different styles such as House, Dubstep, Fidget, Rock, Electro, Complextro…

The idea of this brand new album was to mix the 2 universes of both artists and to share their same passion in sound design and research of new sonorities to introduce a new level of electronic music.

The Hillside West album release is already scheduled for late March. From this first collaboration between JOACHIM GARRAUD & ALESIA, the first single “HOOK” will come out on the 6th of March.

Hook is already supported by Angger Dimas, Bassjackers, Dillon Francis, Axwell, Sebastian Ingrosso, Martin Solveig, Bingo Players, Tristan Garner, Junior Sanchez and many others.

‘Hook,’ the first single off of the upcoming Hillside West EP, is a perfect dichotomy of a House anthem married with snarling bass never heard on any other Joachim Garraud production.

ARTISTdirect Interviews Joachim Garraud on “Hillside West”

Tim Gauthier

“When Hillside West drops on March 20, 2012 via Dim Mak Records, dance floors worldwide will be destroyed in the best way possible. Garraud’s sophisticated techno production collides with Alesia’s dubstep wizardry for a hybrid that’s bound to get bodies moving everywhere. There’s an underground vibrancy coursing through the framework of Hillside West, and it shines brilliantly.” ~ Rick Florino, ARTISTdirect
