Los Angeles-based producer/DJ CARNAGE is teaming up with Dutch producer TONY JUNIOR to release their next major single “Michael Jordan” on Dim Mak Records July 23. “Michael Jordan”—an homage to the iconic basketball player and his legendary jersey number #23—shows CARNAGE and TONY JUNIOR flirting with enormous trance builds and thrashing hardstyle flavor for a new sound set to take the EDM crowds by storm. “Michael Jordan” is a genre-blurring track that carries a unique style only CARNAGE and TONY JUNIOR can call their own.
In this preview teaser of the “Michael Jordan” track, we see CARNAGE and TONY JUNIOR rocking the festival crowds and fans losing their collective minds. Grab “Michael Jordan” and listen for it at all major music festivals this year.
YOLANDA BE COOL, the revered Australian production/DJ duo, return with the release of the “Sweat Naked,” a bonus track exclusive to Dim Mak Records off their recently released full-length album Ladies and Mentalmen.

The EP features remixes from the likes of Étienne de Crécy, The Japanese Popstars, Harris Robotis, Oliver Twizt, and Sub Antix.
Steve Aoki star students Botnek are back with a new video for “Through The Night,” their first single since last year’s spicily-titled Sriracha & Beer EP. Think of the two dudes, Erick Muise and Gordon Huntley, as Montreal’s version of Crookers (you know, while there were still two of them)—two party maestros who love emotional piano breakdowns, double fisting beers, and helping you have a TOTALLY EPIC time.
Fittingly, the video chronicles one long night out with the boys as they tumble from their studio to the center stage of a club filled with unicorn heads and hot chicks, before ending up at a groupie-packed after-party with even more hot chicks. Two themes persist throughout their perilous odyssey: getting wasted and awkward dancing. (via THUMP)

Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo, alias The Bloody Beetroots has always been an anomaly amidst the cocooned trends and coddled pedigrees of dance music. After fits and starts in Italian garage-punk bands, Rifo launched The Bloody Beetroots in 2007 and over the next few years, he would win the support of electro house heavyweights Etienne de Crecy and Alex Gopher in Europe and Dim Mak’s Steve Aoki stateside. On Rifo’s watch, anything’s not only possible – but from the sheer vastness of sounds and media that have materialized – probable as well. From the start Mr. Bloody Beetroot has been capable of seamlessly crossing genres, diving into everything from new wave to the primal screams of hardcore punk.
His most recent collaborations include studio sessions with Youth and remixing Killing Joke, an opportunity very few are entitled to. After working closely with Dennis Lyxen from The Refused on the single smash club record “Church of Noise,” Rifo developed an online community and cult following that embraces the freedom of art, speech and chaos – www.therealchurchofnoise.com. From one-man studio production to full live band shows with The Bloody Beetroots Live and DJ show touring as The Bloody Beetroots DJ set, Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo is a pioneer, reinventing the landscape of electronic music. Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo is currently touring as The Bloody Beetroots LIVE – See below for upcoming tour dates!

Take a dash of funk, a spoonful of electro, two cups of dub, and pound of dance. Mix it all together. Chill it out. Sprinkle with Diplo. Serves a billion. Now, prepare yourself for the tasty and groundbreaking release of “P.O.V 2.0”, the follow up release of the original “P.O.V” by The Death Set. With “P.O.V 2.0”, a mastermind reworking has been produced by Diplo and The Partysquad, and it is just a whole new level of gritty/sexy/delicious fun. Described as “a punk, electro banger”, this track has something that will appeal to basically anyone who enjoys good music in all its various incarnations. Put together so flawlessly, “P.O.V. 2.0” is a work of art that will make you dust off your mirror and brush up on your twerkin’ skills, or (in my case) just dance like a total maniac because when music is this good, who cares about dance moves. Plug in, turn it up, and get down on this anthem of epic proportions.
