Trap

Dum Dee Dum cracks A MILLI!

1214 679 Tim Gauthier

[two_third]Keys N Krates‘ “Dum Dee Dum” is one of those tunes that instantly gets stuck in your head, and with the official video passing the 1 million views mark, it is also getting stuck on your screens. 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 blasting “Dum Dee Dum.”

Off of last year’s SOLOW EP, “Dum Dee Dum” is also taking festival stages by storm this spring, with support from Skrillex, Carnage, Diplo, RL Grime, Flosstradamus and more. This week the single hit #16 on the US Dance Singles Sales Chart (as ranked by SoundScan), making it the only trap record aside from “Turn Down For What” in the top 20. “Dum Dee Dum” is showing no signs of slowing down.[/two_third][one_third_last]

8 LIVE Remixes from Keys N Krates that are better than the Original

960 636 Dim Mak

Keys N Krates has been labeled a “trap” group but this band has talent way beyond making drunk white kids turn up. Drummer Adam Tune, Synth/keyboardist David Matisse and turntableist Jr. Flo are pioneers in blending live performance and electronic dance music. This Canadian trio definitely does not just press buttons and let the lasers distract you from their pre-made set. To see the LIVE talent and creativity for yourself watch these remix performances on their Youtube channel that are better than most songs on Beatport right now.

Aside from performing great music, their SOLOW EP from Dim Mak Records took over the blogosphere with the videos “Treat Me Right” making the Top 10 Vimeo Videos and “Dum Dee Dum” taking #1 on Hypemachine and was nominated for MTV Clubland’s Video Pick of the Year.

Keys N Krates – Dum Dee Dum (Official Video)

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.

New Borgore and Ookay remix for Dirtyphonics’ ‘Hanging On Me’

640 427 Nikki

borgookay

When it comes to heavy bass, haunting lyrics belted out with soaring vocals, dirty beats, and overall badassery…who do you turn to? If you didn’t answer DIRTYPHONICS, then you are wrong and need to reevaluate your life/music situation. The only way to make a DIRTYPHONICS song even dirtier is to add the talents of the cake lovin’ Borgore and trap producer extraordinaire Ookay; the results of such a collaboration can be heard in the Hardstyle-inspired remix these two heavy hitters produced on the Dirtyphonics track “Hanging On Me”. Full of subtle drops and vibey bass, “Hanging on Me (Borgore & Ookay remix)” is sexy and fun, which is just what we’d expect from a fusion of all this talent in one place.

[info_box_3 title=”ABOUT THE RELEASE”]

Three unique and diverse producers come together as GOON SQUAD to unleash a six song EP by the name of “Twerk EP” today, a collection of bangers that will leave fans and tastemakers clamoring for more. Hip hop meshed with trap colliding with driving basslines, “Twerk EP” has a little bit of everything for those with discerning taste and a craving for variety. The title track, “Twerk”, could find a home on the radio as well as in a jam packed venue and will no doubt be a staple at future festivals. Each song brings a different vibe to the table, but the quality remains uninterrupted, leaving the 6-track EP consistently infectious and hyper. GOOD SQUAD have carved a niche for themselves in the intersection of hip hop and dance music, and they’ve done it well.

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 latest interview is with ETC! ETC!, who will be playing tonight at Dim Mak Sundays.
You can expect a big Trap and Moombahton evening tonight!
And if no one will be dancing ETC! ETC! will get “buck naked”! It’s your call people.

Interview

Hi Jose! Where are your roots?
Born In LA with Hispanic blood.

How did you end up on Mad Decent / Party Like US?
I started sending my demo’s over to Diplo & AC Slater, like remixes etc. They were the only first contacts I had really. And fortunately they dig my stuff, so I stayed with my main labels for projects I did.

Moombahton or Trap?
Moombahtrap.

If you could remix one song of John Lennon, what would it be?
Whatever gets you through the night.

What’s your favorite Jazz tune?
Tenacious D – JAZZ.

What would you do if you have to produce music without having energy drinks next to you?
Nothing would get accomplished. I think energy drinks help my A.D.D stay in focus.

Describe the feeling you had when you heard Kissy Sell Out playing your tracks on BBC Radio One.
It was surreal. He first played my collab w/ Mr.Vega.. I remember someone calling me telling me he played it.
I called vega.. It was like 3AM his time.. Lol, I talked about it for weeks.

What would you do to Valentino Khan if you were a girl?
Pet his mustache.

What’s your favorite soccer team?
Manchester United.

Where do you usually get your vocal samples from?
Anywhere. Whatever I hear I like I’ll rip it. Youtube or other songs.
I’m a network thief.

What can we expect from your set during Dim Mak Sundays on February 17th?
Great vibes, great tunes and lots of sweat. And if no one is dancing I’ll get buck naked to get the crowd wild… Wait, maybe thats a bad idea.
