A Night In Review : #DimMakGrammySunday @ Drai’shttp://www.dimmak.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/538265_540235996009562_1232332353_n.jpg612612Tim GauthierTim Gauthierhttp://2.gravatar.com/avatar/2a76d13e81fa3c9c59deb5508ddb09e6?s=96&d=mm&r=x
Last week we brought our first installment of, “A Night In Review” this week we’re bringing you the second installment of the series covering our #DimMakGrammySunday at Drai’s. Here you’ll find in depth details of the night including details of Salva and Steve Aoki’s set. You can also check out upcoming events at Dim Mak.
“As you know, the Grammy Awards happened on Sunday, and none other than bossman himself, Steve Aoki, was nominated for an award. The fact that there are now multiple electronic categories at the Grammys is a testament to how far the genre has come. Needless to say, at the Dim Mak after-party, everyone was in a fantastic mood and ready to celebrate electronic music and it’s ever evolving forms, with sets from DJ Metric, Fashen, DJ Fresh Direct, Salva, Steve Aoki, and Deorro.
Every surface of Drai’s, from floors, to tables, to the spaces in between, were covered with people getting down and having a good time. When Salva took over the decks, he was greeted by an ever-eager audience that was ready to be bass blown away by some hardcore Trap music, and they were not disappointed. Salva started off with “City Star” by Rusty and then dropped into “Purple Swag” by A$AP Rocky. But the highlight of the set had to be when Salva went old school and mixed Missy Elliot’s classic “Get Your Freak On” with the new instant classic, by Kanye West, “Mercy,” only to launch right back in time when he played “Face Down Ass Up” by 2 Live Crew and “What’s Your Fantasy,” by Ludacris. Salva gave a nod to Trap music when he played a little RL Grime and the crowd fed off his energy and the table-shaking bass that blasted out of the speakers. Salva ended his set with crowd pleasers “All Gold Everything” by 2 Chainz, and “Fucking Problem” by A$AP Rocky. He saved the best for last and dropped Drake’s new song “Started from the Bottom” as confetti shot all around the club. It was a great moment and totally epitomized the awesomeness that was the vibe in Drai’s.
Then, as the confetti was still falling from the sky, Steve Aoki stepped up to the table, and the crowd of people that had gathered around the dance floor went nuts, not to mention everyone else in the club filing in from all areas, inside and out, to see what was up. His first song was “Don’t You Worry Child” by Swedish House Mafia ft. John Martin and being one to never disappoint, he brought up singer John Martin himself to give a live rendition of the vocals. Then, Steve dove forward into some new songs of his own. The crowd definitely enjoyed getting a preview of what was to come and were rewarded with some Aoki classics like “Ladi Dadi” the Tommy Trash remix, as well as Turbulence, and of course, Pursuit of Happiness. He also dropped the vocal mix of “No Beef” which was a big hit with everyone inside. The fun really started when Borgore popped out of nowhere and stepped up to the decks while Aoki played his song “Decisions.” Before he stepped off the stage, Aoki made a point to tell everyone around to stick around for up-and-coming DJ Deorro who threw down some late night dirty dutch style music.
It was a ridiculous night to say the least, and the energy in the club reverberated out onto the streets as Deorro’s set ended and the lights came on. Those in attendance also included DJ Fresh Direct, Miguel, Skrillex, Carnage, John Martin, and Joachim Garraud. It was a night that proved how epic electronic dance music can be, and how it can bring people from all over the place together who are just searching for some good music and a damn good time.” – Jenna Browning
Out Now: Dirtyphonics – Walk In The Fire EPhttp://www.dimmak.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/dm401.jpg600600Tim GauthierTim Gauthierhttp://2.gravatar.com/avatar/2a76d13e81fa3c9c59deb5508ddb09e6?s=96&d=mm&r=x
Today French artists Dirtyphonics released the “Walk In The Fire” single on Dim Mak Records. “Walk In The Fire” is part of a three-song EP package including remixes by Schoolboy and Culprate.
“Walk In The Fire” is metal/drum & bass track which combines the best of two worlds. “Walk in the Fire” kicks off with a guttural guitar grind before coalescing into an electro dubstep break fueled by screams and wild production. Setting the dance floor ablaze like never before, it injects a healthy helping of heavy metal intensity into a drum n’ bass dubstep monster that claws right out of the box. This pure and raw track consists full of energy which will give you a boost for the entire day and night. It will both satisfy the metal- and dub-heads out there, so if you have a friend that’s not fully convinced of the power of electronic music, this track might give them the little boost they need. Schoolboy comes with a Knife Party-like electro remix and Culprate makes an intense dubstep version out of it.
The EP release is the latest release before their long-awaited Full Length “Irreverrence” comes out on Dim Mak Records on March 19th.
Following the release of “Irreverence”, Dirtyphonics will embark on their North American “Irreverence Tour.” Launching March 27 in Vancouver, the 30+ date tour will take them through many major markets as well as anticipated performances at this year’s Coachella where they will perform both weekends Sunday, April 14 and Sunday, April 21. Their live show is a full-on sensory experience more akin to seeing your favorite band than a typical EDM act. They bring a level of energy that’s rare in modern music. A limited amount of tickets for all upcoming US dates are immediately available for purchase direct from Dirtyphonics at: http://dirtyphonics.frontgatetickets.com

We’re proud to present a new section on the Dim Mak blog called “Holland Days with Jamal”. In these weekly series our newest intern Jamal will interview various artists and at the same time learn a lot about the American culture and the Dim Mak family.
Jamal’s first interview is with Trap artist SALVA, who will be playing at the Steve Aoki x Grammy After Party. SALVA is mostly known for his legendary remix with RL Grime of Kanye West’s “Mercy”. To buy tickets for the Grammy After Party, click here.
Hi Salva, how are you doing on this fine and sunny day?
Chillin out 🙂
Whats the meaning behind the Pope as your profile photo? Do you just love him that much?
Yeah I wanted to be the pope when I was a little kid… Haha for real though.
How did the process of the Mercy remix you did with RL Grime go?
I had the idea when I was in the studio at Power 106 when Big Sean premiered the original “Mercy”.. I was sitting there remembering that Madlib and Dilla used that reggae sample before. Brought RL in to do the track with me because we started working together recently, I remixed one of his tracks for Wedidit and I was always playing his stuff out… so we collabed on it and didn’t think too much about it.. Just had fun with it and it came out really good.
Did you think the remix would take off like it did? How much did it impact your life/career?
Yeah it’s helped get me a lot of exposure for sure..thankful for that.. just really helped me get in front of bigger crowds — been DJing all my life so it was a good platform to show kids what I do.
Are you still running around coloring the streets? If so where can we see some of your work?
No haha I don’t paint.
J Dilla’s birthday was today (February 7th). How important is he as a person to you?
Really big influence on all of us who were into golden era Hip Hop to modern underground stuff…his productions, his rap. He produced so many classics, if you were into Hip Hop at all the past 20 years — whether you know it or not you love Dilla’s music.
Don’t you just hate that remake of “Fright Night”?
Ha yeah it really wasn’t the best.. The OG is my fave though, of course.
Are we going to see you scratching during the Dim Mak Sundays night this Sunday February 10th?
A little bit maybe, I’ve been kinda forced into using CD-Js as of late, turntables are dissapearing accross the world!!! 🙁
Would you say that Bucharest, Romania is the best place to party? And why?
Kids just go really hard there, and the average party goer probably knows more about new electronic music than I do…they’re just really hungry for what’s next there for some reason.
How awesome was it when Pusha T came and did his verse over your remix during RBMA Culture Clash?
Yeah that was probably one of the best things that came out of doing the “Mercy” remix for sure.. He’s the illest man what can I say!! Pusha just shines on everybody.
What are the future releases on the Frite Nite label you’d like to tell us about?
We have really cool things popping, more underground style — for instance Jimmy Edgar and Adbourke remixes of The Starship Connection record we did last year, and an EP from Ana Sia that is really cracking tribal bass stuff.
Are you excited for your show this Sunday? Any surprises up your sleeve?
Probably no Pusha T this time hahaha (but maybe again soon).. nah I’m just gonna do me, I’ve wanted to come play Drai’s for a minute.. feel it’s gonna be a good platform to play some big rap songs and some banging dance tracks too. Very excited… and it’s GRAMMY’S NIGHT!!
Phat Brahms Remixes + Phat Brahms Tee available NOW!http://www.dimmak.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/PhatBrahmsWhitetee1-copy.jpg500463Tim GauthierTim Gauthierhttp://2.gravatar.com/avatar/2a76d13e81fa3c9c59deb5508ddb09e6?s=96&d=mm&r=x
“Phat Brahms” has traveled a long way since its initial creation in 2012. The dynamic track created by Steve Aoki, Angger Dimas vs. Dimitiri Vegas & Like Mike was produced during a late night on the 2012 Deadmeat Tour and later debut at, Tomorrowland during a four way set amid Steve Aoki’s closing performance. Since the October release Phat Brahms has become a popular track among the EDM genre as a high-energy, big-room, dance floor piece, and recently we’ve release a remix package featuring nine renditions of the track from Coone, Botnek, WolfPack, 3BalMTY, and more.
Along with the release of “Phat Brahms” we’ve now produced an exclusive Phat Brahms T-Shirt! Whenever this track (or a remix) is being played during a show, you now have the right shirt to wear for this occassion! Please not that the Phat Brahms shirt is Unisex, so it’s for anyone to wear! But that’s not all! You can also wear it at work, to school, or just at home! More than enough reasons we’d say to order the shirt at the Dim Mak Shop.
‘#Arrow’ scoop: @SteveAoki to play Oliver’s party — EXCLUSIVEhttp://www.dimmak.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/steve-aoki_510x335.jpg510335Tim GauthierTim Gauthierhttp://2.gravatar.com/avatar/2a76d13e81fa3c9c59deb5508ddb09e6?s=96&d=mm&r=x
Oliver Queen is set to open his Starling City night club and he’s getting one of the best house musicians in the world for opening night.
Grammy nominee Steve Aoki is set to guest star on Arrow, playing himself.
In the hour — titled “The Huntress Returns” (yay), Oliver (series star Stephen Amell) has a new romance brewing, is launching his nightclub and is more content than he’s ever been since coming back from the island. But when his ex, The Huntress (Jessica De Gouw) returns to town, she “threatens to destroy everything and everyone Ollie cares about.”
During the episode the Wonderland artist and DJ will make his scripted series debut performing at the grand opening of Ollie’s club (an evening that we suspect won’t go off without a hitch).
