It is time yet again for another Spotify Spotlight and for this week’s playlist, we take a look at some of the newest releases from Steve Aoki’s powerhouse label, Dim Mak. The LA-based label, which was started in 1996, has been a huge player in the electronic music scene, helping to break artists such as The Bloody Beetroots, MSTRKRFT, and Felix Cartal. On Jan. 21, the label put out it’s 500th release and doesn’t seem ready to slow down anytime soon.
The playlist below includes several of the most popular tracks from new releases including The Chainsmokers’ #SELFIE, I Just Can’t Deny from Keys N Krates’ Solow EP, and more recently Tristan Garner’s Imperium, which was released last week.
When he isn’t spending his time running the trap as RL Grime, Henry Steinway is annihilating dancefloors
Aaron Albano, aka New York-based DJ/producer MING, has a storied career in music, beginning in an experimental hip hop group in the early ’90s and eventually moving into TV music licensing for shows like Weeds and Sex & The City. Now he’s ended up in electro-land, and it is certainly working out well for him–his next releases will be coming your way via powerhouse label Dim Mak and are also featured in this, our latest Heartbeat guest mix. From the stunning opening Clockwork remix of Black To White to the grinding moombahton closer remixed by the man himself, MING takes us on a wild ride of some of the lesser heard, yet equally impressive tracks in electro today.
