Go behind the scenes at Redbull Studios in Los Angeles with Borgore, and get some insight into his development as a musician in Israel and his transition to electronic music and the global market. You might discover a side of Asaf Borgor you never knew existed.

Behind The Scenes: Wild Out Music Video Shoot w/ Borgore, Waka Flocka Flame and more

June 6, 2014 Tim Gauthier Lifestyle, News, Video Tags: , , , , ,

When you put Borgore, Waka Flocka Flame, and Steve Aoki together, you know you’re in for a good time. While the video for “Wild Out” features an epic party as well as some forays into a psychedelic world, the making of the video was a party itself. Go behind the green screen and see what the guys get up to when the cameras aren’t rolling. While it might be disappointing to realize that there aren’t ACTUALLY pizzas flying through space, the on set antics might be entertaining enough to let that fact slide.

Dum Dee Dum cracks A MILLI!

May 1, 2014 Tim Gauthier Music, News, Video Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

[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]

[Official Video] Felix Cartal – Let It Go feat. Lily Elise

April 17, 2014 Tim Gauthier Video Tags: , , , ,

Pre-Order on iTunes: http://georiot.co/CreditsEP

On Felix Cartal‘s latest single, “Let It Go,” the Canadian producer combines pop and electronic elements in a way that’s far from coerced or cliché in the sea of pop-EDM collabs. The track is one of three from his forthcoming EP, Credits, due out on April 29th via Steve Aoki‘s imprint, Dim Mak Records. Another striking detail of “Let It Go” is the beautiful and soulful vocals of Lily Elise. “This song serves as the final piece to my Credits EP, an EP of three songs that all complement each other differently. I wanted to continue the idea of my last EP where each song is different, but still sound like they are from the same sessions. My favorite part of this track has to be the ‘Let It Go’ break. It’s simple and powerful at the same time. Lily Elise made that all possible. Her voice is unreal,” Felix says.

Let It Go” is the perfect made-for-film soundtrack to its accompanying black and white video. “I love what Kasey Lum came up with for the video. We filmed all day just around our city and I think the blend of animation with black and white footage creates this interesting surrealist vibe — a perfect complement to the song itself.”

January 29, 2014 Dim Mak Video Tags: , , , ,

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.

With its long, ambiguous buildup in outer space, the opening to this video kills us. The music is bumpin’, the handclaps are going, we’re ready to go, but to where? Then BOOM! The video’s concept kicks in, and it’s grins from ear to ear. We don’t believe in guilty pleasures, but this vid is pretty sinful, and when it finishes we’re ready to press play and indulge again. Ohji definitely knows how to treat us right. (Jason Sondhi)

Coone & Substance One – Drowning (Official Video)

January 8, 2014 Tim Gauthier Video Tags: , , , , ,

“Drowning” with Substance One is a featured track on Coone’s recently released full-length album “Global Dedication.” The track demonstrates the more melodious spectrum of “Global Dedication,” spotlighting harmonious vocals. A mixture of plush chord progressions and intricately sewn melodies shows off the diversity possible in modern hardstyle. Most impressive of all is how the serene vocals truly capture the emotional context in “Drowning.”

The Evolution of Cumbia Music in Monterrey (via @Vice)

November 19, 2013 Tim Gauthier Fashion, Lifestyle, Video Tags: , , , , ,

Since the 60’s, Monterrey has listened and danced to cumbia, a style of music originally imported from Colombia. Although it once played through the sound systems of Mexico City, nowhere else was cumbia received with as much passion as in Monterrey. There are several theories about how this city in the north of Mexico, thousands of kilometers away form Valledupar, became a stronghold of Colombian cumbia. The most accepted is that local sound systems, known as sonideros, started bringing records from Mexico City and Houston for their parties, particularly in the working-class neighborhoods of Campana and Independencia.

After a couple decades, cumbia in Monterrey evolved and found its own identity. In addition to the sonideros, bands appeared, first playing covers of classic songs, and later songs of their own, with Celso Piña being the most representative figure of this movement. At the same time, Colombians from Monterrey who listened to this music started developing their own fashions, a very particular way of dressing, dancing, and wearing their hair in a style that is neither Colombian or northern Mexican.

In company of Satanás (Satan), a local promoter and concert photographer, we went dancing to the Fe Music Hall, where we saw the Cumbiamberos RS in a face-off with other local bands. We went to a neighborhood party in the Amilpa neighborhood, we visited Rafael Dueñes (one of the first sonideros from Monterrey, who by mistake invented slowed down cumbias) in Independencia, and we talked with Toy Selectah, who, after Control Machete, has innovated, mixed, remixed and reinvented cumbia. Just as Celso Piña says, “We brought cumbia from Colombia to Monterrey, and from Monterrey to the world”.

Cumbia has changed. The local scene has diminished in recent years because of the narco related violence that has hit the city, and the army and police cut the sideburns of many Colombians. Still, the party goes on, and these guys continue to dance and dance in circles to the rhythm of guaracha.
