Artist Spotlight: Scanners ‘Control’

847 470 Tim Gauthier

Dark pop/alternative indie band, Scanners performed their featured track “Control” at the Dim Max x Buygore Austin 2013 Showcase where the band played live alongside some of Dim Mak and Buygore’s biggest artists. “Control” is the melodic and gritty guitar filled single off their new album ‘Love is Symmetry’. The music video for “Control” is a compilation of different live performances the band did in Austin and highlights their passionately energetic stage presence and their signature folky alternative sound.
The London based band is making their highly anticipated return back to the world of music after two years of silence with the release of their new album ‘Love is Symmetry’, their third full-length album on Dim Mak Records scheduled to be release in June 2013.

Scanners have been a part of Dim Mak’s roster of artists since 2006, after Dim Mak chief, Steve Aoki, came across their track, “Violence is Golden” on the internet and later made a trip to London and signed the band. Since then, Scanners have released their debut and sophomore albums, ‘Violence is Golden’ (2006) and ‘Submarine’ (2010) on Dim Mak as precursors to ‘Love is Symmetry’. But their success does not stop there. They have also been featured on a number of popular television shows including Gossip Girl, Shameless, One Tree Hill, Entourage, and a live performance on the ‘Carson Daly’ Show. Along with their television show features, Scanners have supported distinguished acts worldwide including Silversun Pickups, Devo, and Juliette and The Licks among many others.

In April, the band toured around Germany in celebration of ‘Love is Symmetry’ and will continue touring the States and Europe throughout 2013.

The Mexico EP, which features their single “Control”, is out now and available for purchase on iTunes.

In addition to all that, it shows just what kind of crazy good time you can expect from a SHOWTEK show.

Music Video: Sound of Stereo ft. Teddiedrum – Origin (One on One)

850 470 Tim Gauthier

So when did Sofia Coppola start making short films with intense dance music as the soundtrack? Oh wait… she didn’t, Tom Willems did. It’s the new Sound of Stereo (ft. Teddiedrum) music video, “Origin (One on One)”! For four minutes and fifteen seconds, I found myself sitting on the edge of my couch with emotions running at a fever pitch, a burst of laughter, and one hell of a track to help me dance the anxiety of what I was seeing away. Seriously, this music video is like an entire movie crammed into four minutes and the song itself is intoxicating and peaceful at the same time, which is not easy to do; this track could be perfect for studying to or dancing your heart out to at the club.

Sound of Stereo, coming to a Sundance Film Festival near you!
Just kidding… but they will definitely be a permanent fixture in your ears with “Origin (One on One)”.

How animals eat their food…

349 259 Tim Gauthier

The Earth is a precious rock covered in meat sacks (humans) hurtling through space at a seemingly unending spiral of universal epicness. But it’s not just us human skin bots! We share this gorgeous and strange planet with millions of gorgeous and strange creatures (and I don’t mean your relatives). As the saying goes, knowledge is power, and the more we know about the animals that help make up our ecosystem, the better we can learn how to coexist. Thankfully, the fellas at MisterEpicMann and Onkel Bernis Welt have graced us with two videos that demonstrate the various eating styles of some of our furry and feathered friends; this is like next level PBS Nova shit right here. After watching these videos, you’ll be able to go to your family reunion, full of people who think they are better than you, and demonstrate your extensive knowledge of how a kangaroo gets his grub on. You can take joy in saying “Take that, cousin Mark, with your fucking Doctorate’s! I can eat this salad like a goddamn rhino! Bet they didn’t teach you that at Stanford!” and then give him a sample of the Cheetah dining ritual. >Boom.

Teaser Video: Bot – Vamos / Go Down EP

814 450 Tim Gauthier

2012 hit a sad note for Crookers fans when the duo announced that Bot would be going his separate way while Phra carried the Crookers name as a solo venture, and we’ve been waiting ever since to hear something from Bot‘s solo studio sessions. And it looks like the wait is finally over; on April 9th, devoted fans will finally get a sampling of what sort of saucy sounds Bot can make on his own as he releases “Vamos / Go Down” on Dim Mak Records.

This is huge, y’all! Once you’ve heard this track, you’ll be totally salivating for more of what this Italian mega-machine can do. The sounds of “Vamos / Go Down” are completely unlike anything we’ve heard before; it’s like the dance gods took extra special care in forming a talent as refined, energetic, and absolutely unique as Bot’s. The teaser video below is reminiscent of the Saved By the Bell opening credits, but with thunderous beats and super charged layers blazing into your ears over psychedelic visuals. With a video like this, and a breathtaking producer like Bot, this release is going to be one for the history books.
