Dropping his debut EP on Dim Mak is up-and-comer producer Garmiani who brings his versatility and influences into one big blender to come out with “Rumble”. Featuring the funk of saxophones and voice samplings courtesy of Garmiani himself, this three-track EP is packed with solid sounds that would make any club floor ‘rumble’ into chaotic, dance frenzy. Listen to a VIBE exclusive here.
Dim Mak stays ahead of the music curve by enlisting Dirtyphonics’ debut Irreverence — thus bass-jumping over it completely. Dirtyphoncs gives the sounds of jump-up-metal-bass a digital Botox injection, freezing these tunes into your aural memory forever. The album breaks bass music’s backbone and flips genres the bird.
Since hooking up in 1997, Israeli psytrance duo Infected Mushroom has used elements of Goa, trance, industrial, and rock in their music. Their latest EP, Friends On Mushrooms Vol.1, is no different. We checked in on Erez “Eisen” and Amit “Duvdev” Duvdevani to talk reggae, tacos, psilocybin, Celine Dion and Diplo.
VIBE: You’ve expanded your sonic palette on this EP, adding a bit of electro, moombahton, reggae & dub to your signature psy/trance sound. Infected Mushroom: The genres you mentioned are really taking hold in many markets around the world – we feel like our take on these types of music is very unique, but it’s not our goal to become an electro producer, or a moombahton producer, etc. It’s our only desire to make people dance, and to continue trying new things.
VIBE: Since you’re trying out reggae, any thoughts on collaborating with Snoop Lion or Diplo who just flipped from Hip Hop to reggae? Infected Mushroom: We’d love to collaborate. Diplo is awesome – we really dig him.
VIBE: You’ve worked with some big names in rock – Ray Manzarek (The Doors), Perry Farrell (Jane’s Addiction), and Jonathan Davis (Korn). Are there any other rock stars you have on tap? Infected Mushroom: Les Claypool would be super nutty! Dare I say, Celine Dion?
This Winter, DIM MAK RECORDS is proud to announce the signing of upstart West Palm Beach rapper, WILL BRENNAN. In celebration of the signing, VIBE will feature the world premiere for Will Brennan’s Dim Mak debut mixtape “MORE PERFECT UNION”. The mixtape features a variety of production notables from Pretty Lights, Zeds dead, Kaskade, Deadmau5, Xaphoon Jones, Julian Cruz, Araabmuzik and Heroes x Villains.
The first from the mixtape, “All Of The Pretty Lights” breezes in with Rihanna’s hook and Pretty Lights’ beat butchering, and then, Brennan comes in punching with his natural knack for rhymes. “Going Through Under The Sheets” samples Wales singer Ellie Goulding’s electropop single, while Brennan flutters in with a deftly timed flow. Brennan delivers a short narrative on top of a genre-bending take of Warwicks “I Say A Little Prayer For You”, chopped by Zeds Dead. Bravados are not missing from the mixtape, “Remember To Fall In Love” and “Get By With The Golden Touch”, pull in Brennan’s strong suit for fearless flows.
Will Brennan embodies the charisma, versatility and flow-skill to bring a new kind of personality to the rap game. Brennan has supported rap titans like Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole, B.O.B., Yela- Wolf, Big Sean, Wiz Khalifa, Dom Kennedy and Wale. Dim Mak will be releasing Brennan’s “PRODIGAL SON” with additional remixes early 2013.
