Artist Spotlight: Azari & III ‘Hungry for the Power’

844 463 Tim Gauthier

Groovy basslines, feel-good rhythms, and dark yet hooky vocals, three signature elements you can certainly count on house music masters Azari & III to integrate into every one of their hypnotic tracks. The Toronto based quartet takes us on a ride back in time and drops us off during the classic Chicago house era where chill synth textures and syncopated overtones ruled the scene. Azari & III fuse classic house revivalism with modern interpretation. Their featured track, “Hungry for the Power (Jamie Jones Ridge Remix)” released on Dim Mak Records, highlights their back to the future type sound.

Azari & III have the power to captivate you with their upbeat dance moves and expressive stage presence. The music video for “Hungry for the Power” is a compilation of live performance footage from the Sonar North American tour and the 2013 Dim Mak Records showcase in Austin, Texas. The soulful house collective command the stage as Dinamo Azari and Alixander III handle the live electronics while Starving Yet Full and Fritz Helder take charge of the vocals.

In October of 2012, the Canadian house music group released their self titled album Azari & III on Dim Mak Records, which features “Hungry for the Power”. Dim Mak founder, Steve Aoki boasts “[Azari & III] bring up sounds from the past, but it’s what I think the future sounds like. And Azari & III are beyond any trends, which makes this one of the best albums of our generation. They also recently released an EP with their latest single “Lost in Time”, also released on Dim Mak Records in April 2013.” Both are available for purchase on iTunes.

Azari & III will be touring the states in late May/early June with shows in Hollywood, San Francisco, New York, and Philadelphia.

Official Video: Steve Aoki & Angger Dimas ft. My Name is Kay – Singularity

840 451 Tim Gauthier

Evolve. Transcend. Prepare. The future is near, and from the looks of it in Steve Aoki and Angger Dimas’ video for “Singularity” ft My Name is Kay, it’s going to be a bumpy ride. In this voyeuristic video, Steve is at the merciless hands of mad scientist My Name is Kay and her henchman as they turn Steve into a lab rat cyborg with major rager issues, all while the brilliant Ray Kurzweil narrates what the future of mankind will look like. Part science fiction, part futurist theory, the video for the chilling track “Singularity” begs one question: are you prepared for the Neon Future?

AutoErotique – Asphyxiation *Video Teaser*

848 355 Tim Gauthier

AutoErotique doesn’t seem to have any problem living up to the definition of his name, and the proof is in the super sexy teaser for his latest video, “Asphyxiation”. With a nice bare lady ass and a sampling of the track itself, this little glimpse of some sort of heaven is just enough to make me stoked on the release of the full video on May 28th.

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.

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)”.
