Steve Aoki

Dim Mak Studios Voted Top “Club Party” of 2011

Tim Gauthier

L.A. Weekly has presented us with a great year-end update: We have been elected as one-of-the top club parties in Los Angeles for 2011!!! Ranked in at number 5, here is what their staff had to say about our weekly event:

“Haters will hate, especially when it comes to successful DJs and their long-running “hipster” haps. Say what you will about Steve Aoki, he’s done something very, very right with his Dim Mak empire. We’ve been writing about the guy since well before he started his popular Tuesday night at Cinespace, and at the height of its popularity, too. Believe that his enthusiasm for music and people is 100% real, not douchey. Dim Mak Studios took over the back room at Cinespace last year, and continues to bring out the biggest names in rock and electronic music.”

For you L.A. Natives, be sure to check out our weekly event, Dim Mak Studios, hosted every Tuesday off Hollywood Blvd. After 7 strong years, carrying a notable history of major headlining and supporting acts like Daft Punk, Lady Gaga, Kanye West, Lil Jon, and Justice, we are only setting our paces to hosting your most memorable night.

Steve Aoki – “Ladi Dadi (Part II) feat. Wynter Gordon”
Release Date: December 13th, 2011
 

Just in time to spice up any holiday party, Ultra Music in conjunction with Dim Mak will unleash today, Tuesday, December 13, “Ladi Dadi (Part II)” from STEVE AOKI featuring Wynter Gordon. This club dub remix is the prequel to “Ladi Dadi,” an original track from AOKI’s WONDERLAND album due out January 10th.

Featuring the vocals of American pop-dance singer/songwriter Wynter Gordon, “Ladi Dadi (Part II)” is a blazing dance floor track. Says AOKI, “This is the club version of my single ‘Ladi Dadi’ featuring Wynter Gordon. I wrote a whole new dubstep drop that is dirty and simply nutty. Starts off with the four on the floor leading you into the heavy bass chorus then right into the vocal hook and does it all over again. ‘Ladi Dadi (Part II)’ is one of my secret weapons in the past months. Hope you love it!”

Look for the album version of “Ladi Dadi” to be released as a single in early 2012.

Into The AM Interviews Zeds Dead on their latest release

Tim Gauthier

“Allow us to introduce you to one of electronic music’s most promising new acts, Zeds Dead. The truth is, however, Toronto-based Zeds Dead (AKA DC and Hooks) needs no introduction to the legions of fans that have been on to the electronic/dubstep/progressive duo for the better part of two years. Through positive world of mouth, massive YouTube hits, support from top jocks and a never ending string of tour dates – to cities big and small – Zeds Dead has become one of the most exciting acts of 2011 and a true phenomenon.” INTO THE AM caught up with the guys and asked some pretty juicy questions. Take a look!
