In this music video for his single “Ratchet” from the #NEWGOREORDER album, Borgore spoofs a galactic council of super intelligent aliens who have come to Earth to determine whether or not to exterminate the human race. As the massive mothershipcasts a shadow over the planet, the alien council analyzes video of the best and brightest humans that Earth has to offer but their advanced technology malfunctions.

It’s always a pleasure hosting our Dirtybird homies at #DimMakTuesdays and this Tuesday, November 12th we’re excited to have Dirtybird player and Anabatic Records founder Worthy on the ones and twos as we vibe to the sounds of booty bass, breaks and future house!
“The Worthy sound has always been powerful, rocking, funky, bass-driven music at its best, and for me this is the new wave in house music.” – Carl Cox
“Those hardcore Dirtybird fans rolled in full force…these kids get so passionate about it…this is by far the most exciting show I’ve done here” – Justin Jay after his recent set with Ardalan at #DimMakTuesdays
This past weekend marked the first, national Red Bull Flugtag event in Long Beach, CA. Over 110,000 people spectators showed up to watch as 28 teams launched their clever flying contraptions off the Rainbow Harbor pier in hopes of taking home the title of champion and possibly breaking a world record.
Being Dim Mak, we can never resist a challenge, so we teamed up with our good friends at We Are Matik to create the Interactive Boombox Flugtag. While we didn’t take first place or set a world record, we did get a 7.5 for creativity and kicked it with the Workaholics doods (see below). Next year we plan on returning to the annual Red Bull Flugtag with a vengeance like no other – DOMINATION #BYANYMEANSNECESSARY
Peep the vid of our heroic flight, led by none other than CAPTAIN JENKS (see above).

While it’s all well and good to rattle off a list of accomplishments, sometimes it’s just easier to name-drop. Keys N Krates has toured and played alongside Bassnectar, Skrillex, Kid Cudi, Pretty Lights, Major Lazer, Girl Talk and Zeds Dead in recent years, and received support from notable electronic artists such as Diplo and TNGHT. There’s a smorgasbord of talent in this Toronto-based trio — Dave Matisse on keyboards, Adam Tune on drums and Jr. Flo on turntables — which has been blending electronic and trap music with rap beats since 2008. They played SXSW, Ultra and Wakarusa music festivals, and are getting ready to release their SoLow EP in September. (via USA Today)
Are you in desperate need for some super sexy .gifs? You may not know it, but the answer is YES, yes you are. And have we got just the thing for you. In honor of the music video for Autoerotique’s “Asphyxiation” reaching #2 on the BeatPort Electronica Chart, we present you with 22 .gifs depicting some of the most stunning dodgeball players in history; girls doing flips and being all around badasses, guys getting hit in their tender bits by dodge balls, and lots of slow motion bouncing. My personal favorite is the shark mascot tearing the head off the bald eagle mascot, but a close second would be the leader of the pack licking her hard-won trophy. Good luck figuring out which one is your top pick, and let us know which you choose in the comments below!
This is the record that will blow up every dancefloor worldwide. This is the record that will rock every mainstage on every festival this year. This is the record that combines electro house mayhem with one of the biggest drops to hit yet! “This Record”,…
In the wake of the destruction caused by Proxy’s mammoth double-album debut, ‘MUSIC FROM THE EASTBLOCK JUNGLES,’ the Russian demiurge returns to scour the ruins for survivors with a cluster of B-side bunker-bangers. These tracks will be hauntingly familiar to the ruined cortexes of anyone who’s ever lived through Proxy’s live show, granting fans their longtime wish of owning and coming to terms with the source of their neural trauma in digital form.
“What strikes small men as excess to me seems necessary. To crush them was not enough. I saw I needed to extinguish all hope,” says Proxy, as he continues his onslaught of live dates around the world. “My challengers had already fallen. Now they have been erased.”
You can also grab Proxy’s previous release, ‘Music From The Eastblock Jungles, Part 2′ on Dim Mak now.
Hot Mouth is back and with an awesome remix of Angger Dimas’s and Oliver Twizt’s big tune XXX. This production has a unique feel while absolutely destroying the dance floor with it’s big room, dirty electro sound. We highly recommend picking up this track when it releases on Dim Mak Records on February 26th.
As we get ready to release Proxy’s second part of “Music from the Eastblock Jungles” next week you can now stream the second LP exclusively over at Mixmag. The second part of his ‘Music From The Eastblock Jungles’ album is out this Tuesday on Dim Mak.
After the first release the Russian artist is set to take you to his next journey of dark synths and vibes. The release will be followed by a European Tour.
PART II forces an unconditional surrender with a mix of acid (“Audio 15″), ambient (“Nanomed”), Eastern-flavored pop (“Coke”) and hip-hop inflected head-nodders (“9000″). The second part has been crowned by Mixmag as “Electro album of the month. 5/5”.
They say “It follows on from the first part, which was released in November of last year, and is a sterling showcase of the Russian producer’s slamming take on electro. You have been warned. This one’s a ripper. And to celebrate its release, Mixmag has the exclusive first play.”
PRE-ORDER: You can pre-order “Music From The Eastblock Jungles Pt II” now here.
