Dim Mak Invades Miami – Part 2

938 938 Tim Gauthier

The party never stops when the Dim Mak crew is on scene. If you thought day 1 in Miami was wild then days 2 and 3 of WMC 2013 were nothing less than savage.

Things got wet and, well, weird as we hosted our highly anticipated Dim Mak Records Pool Party on Day 2. The Raleigh Hotel pool was full of babes in bikinis and dudes ready to dance their faces off. With rousing performances by Steve Aoki, Dzeko & Torres, Dirtyphonics, Laidback Luke, Keys N Krates, Yolanda Be Cool, Borgore & Carnage, Clockwork, and Benny Benassi, just to name a few, the day turned into night and back to day before anyone even realized it happened.

The insanity continued on day 3 as we made our way to the OWSLA Party at Red Bull House where we undoubtedly had our share of fun.

Make sure you stay tuned for “Dim Mak Invades Miami – Part 3” to catch us at Ultra Music Festival.

Dim Mak Heads to Austin

684 396 Tim Gauthier

This year we started off the 2013 festival season in Austin, Texas during the SXSW festivities for the Dim Mak x Buygore showcase. A few members from our team headed out from LA to the lone star state to help including #Jenks, Bryan (B!) Linares, Alexvnder, and others. Even our good friend NeilFavila.com made it!

The event served as a platform to showcase Dim Mak’s newest and long-term artists from near and far. We rallied in the troops for a roster that included Scanners, AutoErotique, PeaceTreaty, Azari & III, Keys N Krates, Will Brennan, New Ivory. Borgore and the Buygore camp presented Kennedy Jones, Ookay, & an epic Borgore x Carnage dj set. You know this was a party!

♫ Keys N Krates ‘Treat Me Right’ (Official Video + Free Download)

847 465 Tim Gauthier

Treat Me Right: an epic trip through space, time, and romance novels. The new video from Keys N Krates’ interprets its own ambiguous request by borrowing from the beautifully rendered (yet often ridiculous) world of vintage romance novel cover art. Spanning everything from Highlander love to superspy ass-kickery, only an origin from deep space can explain Treat Me Right’s evolutionary mysteries.

Watch the video on the Dim Mak Records YouTube Channel.
Download the THUGLI Remix on Soundcloud.

Later this year, catch Keys N Krates on the road in North America, and playing some of your favorite summer festivals like LollapaloozaHARD LA and more yet tba.

cuvm_KNKTreatMeRightCover_1-e1361326570656We all know Keys N Krates play by their own rules when creating their far from ordinary trap inspired beats. Well, we got to spend some rehearsal time with the trio to see just how they make the musical magic happen. The production of their latest single, “Treat Me Right” released on Dim Mak Records, started off as a jam session with Adam Tune on drums, David Matisse playing keys, and Jr. Flow mixing on the turntables. KNK likes to record their music like a traditional band, “jamming it out until something comes out” says Adam. Watch as they rehearse for their live performance of “Treat Me Right”.

Dim Mak x #blu eCigs x #ElectricLounge x Austin, TX

640 546 Tim Gauthier

For one week out of the year, all eyes are on the Lone Star state as thousands of fans, bands, bloggers, vendors, and film geeks swarm the Texas state capital for SXSW.

This year, from March 14-16, a new venue with the electronic set in mind popped up on historic 6th street. Sponsored by blu eCigs, the Electric Lounge held free shows featuring some of today’s most popular and rising stars of the dance movement; so naturally, there were some incredible Dim Mak Records artists included in the lineup. We all know it’s not a party until it’s a Dim Mak party, and SXSW attendees learned that lesson first hand. Featured at the Electric Lounge were DMR artists Datsik, Keys N’ Krates, and Will Brennan. Playing to a packed, yet intimate crowd, the lounge was popping off like the buttons of a too-tight shirt on a too-round man.

Datsik did what he does the absolute best (see: blow minds) by playing tracks off of his newest EP, Cold Blooded(Firepower), as well as crowd favorites from the “Vitamin D” album.

The triple threat trio of Keys N’ Krates brought the house down with pumping vibrations, giving fans a taste of what’s to come in 2013 with “Treat Me Right”, the trios newest single that is placing on charts all across the board.

Will Brennan, riding the waves of his latest releases “RNR” and “Fall In Love” in celebration of the re-release of his album “Prodigal Son”, the hip hop/electro darling gave Electric Lounge a performance that dared the attendees to not throw their hands up and get down.

All in all, Dim Mak Records artists showed native Austinites and international visitors alike that the label features diverse artists who know how to please an equally diverse crowd. Thanks to everyone who supported our hard working artists at this years SXSW, and an extra special thanks to #blu eCigs and #ElectricLounge for shining their spotlight on Dim Mak Records.

Check out some of the madness that took place in the photobooth on Thursday. See the full set here.

“The track’s hip-hop basses combined with feel-good electronic synth melodies explains why these three dance pioneers should be ‘treated right’ by contemporaries throughout the rest of 2013”VIBE Magazine

Tune, Matisse and Jr. Flo – or Canadian electronic trio and burgeoning live-act KEYS N KRATES as they’re more widely known to the music world – have today released their latest single ‘TREAT ME RIGHT’ on Steve Aoki’s globallly-celebrated Dim Mak imprint.

The first track to be taken from their forthcoming ‘SOLOW’ EP, ‘Treat Me Right’ was initially premiered across the airwaves on Annie Mac’s taste-making BBC Radio 1 show on 8th February to a truly incredible reception. Since then, the iconic trap-tinged electronic/hip-hop monster has been enjoying hefty support from the online sphere and has become a mainstay in the sets of big hitters such as TNGHT, Diplo, Annie Mac and Salva (to name but a few) over the past few weeks.

Having been recently crowned #1 of Billboard’s official “Next Rising Artists” chart, Keys N Krates are also gearing up for high profile North American LIVE shows at SXSW Festival (Austin, Texas), Blue Martini (Tampa, FL), WMC (Miami, FL) and Blue Martini (Orlando, FL). See below for full list of tour dates.
