1438 808 Tim Gauthier

Toronto-based live electronic outfit KEYS N KRATES have today (October 17) partnered with MTV Clubland and mtvU for the premiere of the official music video for their breakthrough single “Dum Dee Dum” from their recently released SOLOW EP, out now on Dim Mak Records. The video made its on-air debut this morning on MTV Clubland and is also featured on MTV2 and mtvU. Watch the “Dum Dee Dum” music video here: http://goo.gl/xNJbVM.

Directed by Slave Labour, the video is a hilarious mockumentary that explores the Mennonite culture. In the video, the director visits various Mennonite communities and introduces members to current technology unbeknownst to them, including iPods, boom boxes, and more, all the while blaring the “Dum Dee Dum” track in full blast. The reaction from the Mennonite community to the alien sounds of “Dum Dee Dum” is priceless.

Now that the dust of Austin, TX has settled, the editorials recapping the month-long SxSW event have started to appear. Jay-Z’s “Life + Times” had managed to get ahold of Steve during his SxSW performance, to touch a little more on the January-release of “Wonderland”

It’s a Friday night in Austin, Texas and the air is abuzz with people from every corner of the globe looking to get a bite of SXSW’s musical offerings. Steve Aoki, one of electronic dance music’s biggest DJs, producer and founder of Dim Mak Records, closes out the mtvU Woodie Awards with a high intensity set and unexpected drop-in from Lil’ Jon to perform “Turbulence.” After the performance, Aoki, clad in graffiti jeans and a loose Dim Mak tank, looks more like he just walked off a plane from Los Angeles instead of a humid, hot Texas stage after an energetic DJ set. Here, Aoki sits with Life + Times to talk about everything from the future of dance music to his fashion collection.
