Our close friends and undisputed musical geniuses, underground duo Bixel Boys, join Dim Mak Records with their innovative rework of Botnek and 3LAU’s collaboration “Vikings.” Mesmerizingly minimal and articulately crafted, the California duo reupholsters the once electro track into a smattering of spacey synths, delicate drum kicks and groovy basslines, injecting their patented touches of soul and swing truly making this one special.

They’ve done it again. The infamous LA duo Bixel Boys have landed an official remix to Kiesza’s #1 single “Hideaway” and have successfully sent it into deep waters without stepping on the toes of similar sounds. The product is energetic with a funky house feel and a sexy low end. The boys have been crushing a bigger sound as of late, but personally this is the Bixel vibe I love and hope for more of!
Bixel Boys are E V E R Y W H E R E, currently getting their #FREELIFE merch donned by the “swaggiest” of music folk from Lil Jon to TJR to Baauer and everyone else you follow the Instagram of. Well… good news: the much coveted merch is finally available for us #normies to wear via a very clever contest which you can read about on their website: bixelboys.com. Oh and by the way you don’t WIN it you EARN it because this shit is made of 100% bonafide Bixel magic thread AKA if you wear it you will probably become famous or a unicorn or both I don’t know you should probably just try EARNING it though right? I mean.
As if that weren’t enough for you to get excited about, das brüder bix have also remixed Thomas Newson on the famous Armada Music imprint, it’s their perfect and saucy little recipe:
Heap of Techno Leanings
Scoop of Big Room, cheesiness removed
100% Pure Vibes, for coating

Had the pleasure of listening to this jam in the studio as it took shape, and remember thinking what an amazing combo. Now, it has arrived at my door, and honestly a lot different than I remember. It always was special, but now its sexy, and the diamond is polished. Dig in below!
The Brothers Bix are back with their sophomore video from their sophomore EP, and in the true style and embrace of the #FREELIFE culture they so cheekily broadcast, it’s SPORTS. To be more specific, the video revolves around the Fab 5, who in their own way embrace the #FREELIFE style by being the Freshmen who champion their way to the top of everyone’s ‘talking about’ list. I see what you did there, Bixel Boys.
In true honor of #SPORTS and #FREELIFE, Bixel Boys have created a bracket competition for the NCAA Tournament. Top 3 winners of the bracket get a nice lil swag pack of merch, show tickets, and some super secret unannounced items. YOu can join in to the “Bixel vs. The World” over on ESPN.com here: Bixel vs. The World NCAA Tournament Bracket
B-B-B-B-Biiiiiixel! Seems like the LA duo have flames trailing behind their Nike shoes, with things heating up on the musical and show fronts. Having just announced their first North American tour, Bixel Boys look to be making strong appearances at places like SXSW and WMC, along with major clubs like Lure in Los Angeles and Cielo in New York.
The latest on the BB production front is their remix of Crystal Method’s ‘Over It’. Praised by many in the Bixel following to be their greatest production as of yet, the remix is definitely a high-spirited remix with a catchy melody… lots of posi #feels. Not over it. Oh ps free download because like I said before Bixel Boys knows bitches love a free download.
Bixel Boys will not stop until they’re sponsored by Nike #freelife, and then they’ll probably hit the ground running even faster. Their latest remix for Kayper is self-desribed as ‘Deep Booty Bass’ and we must oblige. Definitely a tool for DJs trying to make the ground shake and the booty break during their big room sets, while still keeping moody vibes. Have fun with this one, I know we definitely will.
It was a pretty easy decision when we collectively agreed to add our LA buds Bixel Boys to the roster of talent on our illustrious Ones to Watch in 2014 list, and they’re certainly making us look good. Coming out of the gates red hot, the B-boys flip UK darling Eliza Doolittle‘s vocals into a pumping club track without sacrificing their unique big-room meets underground sound. Never shy to skate the fine line between cheese and class, they’ve kept their ears to the rising talents across the pond while still managing to appeal to your girlfriend and all of her friends as Eliza’s vocals coast over piano stabs before giving way to an unsuspecting drop that’ll have even the snarkiest of punters catching a vibe. Grab the free download and hail the #freelife.
Following up on his breakthrough single, “Gecko,” the emerging 18-year-old Dutch producer/DJ, Oliver Heldens, releases his huge remix of Martin Garrix’s “Animals” via Spinnin’ Records. With this release, he continues his ”Heldeep” productions transforming Garrix’s hit into a big-room underground track with a heavy, up-tempo deep house vibe. Heldens, along with the Bixel Boys, may be one of the first artists to bridge the gap between big-room listeners and the underground community.
