Dim Mak Presents: Skrillex & Alvin Risk, Live at Dim Mak StudiosTim GauthierTim Gauthierhttp://2.gravatar.com/avatar/2a76d13e81fa3c9c59deb5508ddb09e6?s=96&d=mm&r=x
“Skrillex’s six night hometown tour began yesterday, when the local boy-done-good held court before a sold out crowd at Cinespace. It might have seemed like an unusual venue choice; he normally plays for thousands at festivals, while Cinespace is an intimate spot where you often catch DJs hanging out at the bar.
But the Hollywood venue — home to Dim Mak’s famed Tuesday night parties — strongly influenced a young Sonny Moore back in the mid-’00s. As he noted last night, without the party and its founder Steve Aoki, there wouldn’t be a Skrillex.”

Another one for the record books- Skrillex (and friends) took over the entire floor plan of Dim Mak Studios, as the kicker to his 6-stop “Mothership” LA-tour. As Skrillex shouted to the swarm of fans, this is his way of giving back to all the clubs he partied at over the years.
LA Weekly was present at Dim Mak Studios, surprising us all with an in depth review of the event:

ABOUT IDENTITY FESTIVAL
Finally, the ‘IDENTITY‘ Summer Tour is here: the first-ever touring electronic ONLY music festival that will visit major outdoor amphitheaters throughout North America in August and September and give fans the full electronic music experience.
The line-up for IDENTITY—which is set to further galvanize the electronic music explosion—is highlighted by the hottest cutting-edge artists of the genre including Kaskade, Steve Aoki, Pretty Lights, Rusko, Avicii, Disco Biscuits, DJ Shadow, Skrillex, Pete Tong, Chuckie, Booka Shade, Modeselektor, the Crystal Method, Nero and many more.
Launched in 1996, by then UCSB student Steve Aoki, with a 7 inch from obscure SoCal hardcore ensemble Stickfigurecarousel, Dim Mak has since put out over 200 releases and broken artists from Bloc Party to The Kills, Battles, The Gossip, Klaxons, The Bloody Beetroots, MSTRKRFT and more. In just the past few years, Dim Mak has created its touring department in the same tradition of spanning genres and doing what feels right. In the US, Dim Mak has partnered with festivals such as Hard, Neighborhood, and Pacific in Los Angeles as well as produced its own stage at Insomniac’s 2010 Electric Daisy Carnival featuring Armand Van Helden, Travis Barker and Atrak, Steve Aoki, and more. Internationally, Dim Mak has quickly become a global force in the festival circuit including stages at Beatpatrol in Vienna, Get Loaded in London, Playground in Jakarta as well as We Love Sounds/Winterland Soundsystem across Australia in 2010 and most recently Future Music Australia 2011. This summer Dim Mak continues that tradition at the upcoming Optimus Festival in Lisbon, Tomorrowland in Belgium and Beatpatrol again as well as the first nationally touring Electronic music festival in the US, IDENTITY.
