To get in the spirit of their performance tonight @ the DIM MAK HOLIDAY PARTY and final Dim Mak Tuesday of the year, I grabbed another quick-hitter interview from the Mexicali based duo Climbers. We wanted to touch base on their recent successes and shows, and specifically tonight in LA. The two members Jay Blakk and Kiko deal respectively answered the questions taking turns, but kept it right to the point which is what we all like… enjoy :)

GDD: You guys are from Mexicali… has there been a strong influence in where your from that shaped the music you produce and DJ? Or where has your inspiration come from?

Jay Blakk – Well I think some has come from Mexicali, because here when we started the scene was all about bringing the best music and quality, in terms of mixing. So, it was harsh but also so powerful because it brought out the best in you. And obviously from the promoters that took chances and brought incredible acts that were giving us a new perspective of electronic music.

GDD: You recently released “House Arrest” on Turbo Recordings TWIN TURBO label. How did the connection come to be with Tiga and what was that like?

Kiko Deal – Well we respect and love Tiga’s music, so our manager sent the track to Tiga and he loved it so it was a quick choice for them to sign it.

GDD: Your Winter tour is already underway… what are you excited about most playing in the US and what do you think will differ from performing in Central America?

Jay Blakk – Well we just played in Detroit and Denver and the second leg is still to come, we already saw differences is the weather obviously, but what we are loving is that the people are eager to hear our music and especially music that does not come often on the radio. They are willing to go out in the cold to hear the music they loved and we got a lot of respect for that.

GDD: You’re playing tonight alongside our mutual friends Thee Cool Cats @ Dim Mak Studios. Can we expect a higher energy in your set because you get to play with friends? Or what does that do you for your guys night?

Kiko Deal – Playing with those guys will be great. But when we play with friends it doesn’t change the perspective of our sets, it only includes a higher level of confidence since you’re with friends. But at the end of the day the most important thing is the audience and how to interact and connect with them, with the music we love and play.

GDD: What’s the one thing you HAVE to do/see while you’re in LA?

Jay Blakk – A Lakers Game.
Kiko Deal – Going to the Roxy Theatre.

To kick things off for my residency @ the infamous Dim Mak Studios (aka Dim Mak Tuesdays) in 2012, I have created a new mixtape to get you all hyped for the year to come. I’ve packed it with several of the artists that DMS has hosted  and some of the upcoming talent, as well as some of my own forthcoming releases and friends too! So grab ahold of the new year with this boomer, and I hope to see you all on Tuesdays @ Dim Mak Studios.

I know it’s a little late notice, but it’s a big night at Cinespace tonight kiddos! As you can see above, Midnight Juggernauts will be performing live off of their new album, The Crystal Axis, which was released on Siberia Records in June. Main stage will also play host to another live performance from Las Vegas electro trio, Afghan Raiders, who will also be making an appearance at HARD Summer in August. I don’t know about you all, but I love to see live shows as often as possible, so I would definitely suggest making it out to catch both of these acts.

On top of the live sets in the main room, an all star DJ lineup will also be in effect including Dances With White Girls, DCUP (one of the masterminds behind the epic summer hit ‘We No Speak Americano’), and your friendly resident DJs Them Jeans and Dan Oh.
Buy your $10 presale tickets here! I think they’re giving away a free vinyl signed by Aoki too.

Our good buddy Dan Oh just shot me over his latest remix of Hussle Club‘s new track and me likey. If you guys are in the LA area, make sure to check out Dan get down every Tuesday night at Dim Mak Tuesdays at Cinespace in Hollywood. Guaranteed good time. Also, the man has some originals in the works so keep an eye out for a few heaters coming from his way in the futahhh.
