February 6, 2014 Tim Gauthier #ThrowbackThursday, Blog, Events, Music, New Music, Video Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

If you’ve been a fan of Dim Mak for awhile now, the name Kele Okereke probably rings a bell. If it doesn’t, the name Bloc Party definitely should. Kele is the frontman for award-winning British rock band Bloc Party who released their self-titled EP on Dim Mak back in 2004! Bloc Party also performed at our beloved #DimMakTuesdays at Cinespace and we’ll always consider them to be a special part of the Dim Mak family.

Kele is currently touring North America in support of his “Heartbreaker” EP, out now on Crosstown Rebels and available on Beatport. The album features four tracks that display Kele’s love for underground electronic dance music. Here’s a quote from Kele about the EP:

“I’ve always loved the inclusive and spiritual nature of house music, so the opportunity to make music for the most iconic and influential house music label in the UK is a dream come true for me.”

On Monday, February 10th, we are honored to be hosting this talented musician at Sound Nightclub where Kele will be performing a special dj set. The event is FREE with RSVP – head to dimmakevents.com to get on the guest list!

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.

Keys N Krates join Vimeo’s Top 10 Videos of 2013

January 20, 2014 Tim Gauthier Video Tags: , , ,

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.”

New Music Video | Scanners – Charmed Life

December 19, 2013 Nikki Music, Video Tags: , , ,

London-native alternative geniuses Scanners have unveiled the new music video for their track “Charmed Life” from their album Love Is Symmetry, released earlier this year on Dim Mak Records.

The haunting and unforgettable “Charmed Life” is a versatile track that perfectly sets the mood for a serene sunset car ride. Simple yet eerie, the “Charmed Life” video features a close-up shot of vocalist Sarah Daly shot through grainy and beautifully filtered cinematography. The video is sprinkled with scenic shots, images of the band performing live in a living room setting, and a whirlwind spin featuring each of the band members.

Scanners have been part of the Dim Mak family since 2006 with the release of their album Violence Is Golden. They have also released a number of projects on Dim Mak Records, including Submarine (2010) and their latest Love Is Symmetry (2013) along with several singles and remix pacakges.

Love Is Symmetry from Scanners is available now on Dim Mak:
