811 466 Tim Gauthier

There is no such thing as ordinary in the world of Steve Aoki, especially when it comes time to interview Dim Mak Artists. This fact rings especially true for the 22nd episode of AOKI FILES Miami Edition where Steve talks to Felix Cartal and AutoErotique and tries to get a word in edgewise.

The two Canadian producers, who recently collaborated on the completely insane track “The Alarm”, discuss what it would be like if they did a country-wide tour together (it involves a small hatchback) and who deserves the credit for making the phenomenal “The Alarm” (Felix is pretty sure he deserves all the credit). Felix and Keith both drop some fresh-out-the-oven information about new tracks coming up as, well as upcoming collaborations with other huge names in the game. One thing is for sure, when these two mega-producers get together with an extremely excited Aoki, the outcome is sure to make you do some ball grabbing of your own.

600 600 Tim Gauthier

Aaaah, spring time. A time for flowers, soft rain showers, and… GROUND BREAKING ANTHEMS? What?! This ain’t your grandma’s season anymore. Leading the pack of up and coming crowd pumping anthems to be released in the next few months is “This Record” by Jacob Van Hage and Billy the Kit, out on Dim Mak Records on April 2nd.

Billy the Kit vs Jacob van Hage - This Record
“This Record” is a heart racing, sweat inducing track that takes what you thought you knew about electro house and mind numbing drops and makes your knowledge look like that of a two year old with a toy piano. We’ve come to expect nothing less than pure music magic from the duo Jacob Van Hage and Billy the Kit, so when these forces combine as they have for “This Record”, the result is sure to be devastating to sound systems for the rest of the year.

Check out a sneak peak of “This Record” and start counting down the days until April 2nd when this scorching track can be yours to bump indefinitely, courtesy of Dim Mak Records.

Hard Ticket To Hawaii – Skateboard Assassin

475 454 Tim Gauthier

hard_ticket_to_hawaii_poster_01In a world where justice is neither swift nor equipped with nearly enough explosions, rest assured that special agents Dona and Taryn are on the trail of America’s deadliest (and most fashion forward) criminals. Diamonds, snakes mutated by toxic waste, side braid/mullet hairdos paired with more jorts than you could ever wish for, Hard Ticket to Hawaii is a movie for people with a discerning taste in action adventure. You like sex dolls? We got em! You like bazookas? Fuck yeah you like bazookas! So what would you do if someone used a sex doll as armor (which is really the best use for them) while shooting at you going five miles per hour on a skateboard? You’d blow that little shit and his plastic girlfriend right the hell up with your bazooka, which is always conveniently located in the backseat of your rockin topless Jeep!

If classic zingers in the form of what we in The Biz call “one liners” is more your bag, then you better put on your big boy denim cutoffs because this movie is JAM PACKED with them. You don’t believe me? Well fuck you! Try this on for size: “If brains were bird shit, you’d have a clean cage”. Yowza! Roll that in your heavy doobie and smoke it, pilgrim.

This ain’t your mama’s movie. Hard Ticket to Hawaii will pull at your heart strings while punching you in the taint. And you’re gonna love every grueling minute because you’re a nutcase.
