GDD homies and Dim Mak-ians VCO have been very true-to-form studio rats as of late, churning out music left and right. Adding another pot to their busy stove, the duo have decided to launch a bi-weekly podcast more than aptly titled “Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe”. In true VCO style the mix contains a variety of hollowed, dark techno sprinkled throughout with just a tinge of weirdness. By compiling a rather special selection of artists together, VCO provides an excellent showcase into their style which anyone who’s a fan of the darker side of the electronic spectrum will be more than pleased with and ready for more.

Toronto’s deepest duo Art Department has transcended the spirit of Burning Man’s ‘Robot Heart’ into an original production with the help of Blud, Shaun Reeves (VisionQuest) and Damian Lazarus. The deep house kingpins are celebrating the infamous Burning Man camp – with a remix competition on hosted on beatport! Riding off an official remix for Azari & III, our Dim Mak friends VCO have stepped up to the task and have delivered a wave of techno atop a rolling basslin driving their version. Check it out below and VOTE for their remix! Plus, since VCO are veteran-burners, they figured “joining in this contest would be fairly fitting.”
After being burdened by finals at the RMBA Culture Clash two years ago (where Dim Mak, Stones Throw, SMOG, and Dub Club battled with an achingly close win by Stones Throw over SMOG), the second I heard of the clash returning, I was all in. As a 100% admitted fan-girl of the stuff that Friends of Friends teamers Salva, Shlohmo, Groundislava, and Jerome LOL are pushing I was really excited to see them competing, but as we all know my blood is infused with SMOG. So my fate for the evening is sealed.
After recently winning Dim Mak’s Autoerotique WTF Remix contest, the Miami native and Overthrow brethren Damaged Goods jumped right back on the chains and took on Kaskade‘s newest single “LLOVE”. For those who love the melodic tones of the original but wanted it rougher on the edges – this version takes an anthemic build up and drops you straight into a hard hitting pipeline. Eat your heart out.
This week marked the release of Proxy‘s latest single, “Shut Up,” out now on Dim Mak Records, and our friends, VCO, have put together a pumping Techno remix that has received massive support already from label owner Steve Aoki, Hot Mouth, AutoErotique, and more.

The EP features more remixes from John Roman, Gtronic, and Sound of Stereo, and can be picked up in its entirety here.
Dim Mak‘s NY transplant Dan Oh has taken up a new alias Brass Fergie – cultivating a wide spectrum of bass-driven sound that saw massive exposure opening the Dim Mak stage @ this year’s Electric Zoo Music Festival. He has teamed up with our mutual friends at THE WELL to bring you a showcase of his new found appeal, featuring an awesome blend of basslines through House, UK Funky, NU-K Garage and Ghetto-tech. Definitely a great mix for to get you through the day, kick off the night, or just wind everything down.

Tony Senghore and Dave Spoon have joined forces to create their latest Dim Mak Records release, “Be 4 Ever” which was unveiled last week on the LA label. This track brings listeners to otherworldly dimensions with heavy bass, guttural robotic vocals, and haunting synths. Don’t be fooled by the name; this apocalyptic track is anything but sweet. The Swedish and British producers are well known for their ability to create entirely fresh and progressive sounds, but their underground “Be 4 Ever” is an unparalleled aural sensation. Today, Tony has unveiled his own personal remix of the collaborative original which you can grab after the jump!
Our good buddies and Dim Mak‘s own Matzerath and Bais Haus are taking on Lollapalooza’s contest via do312.com and bringing analog back into swing of EDM production. The two DJs rip into San Diego rockers Delta Spirit’s new single “California”, transforming the indie rock piece into a Belgian Techno infused track. Their remix steps up to the plate with an arsenal of sonic tricks similar to that of producers Mumbai Science, Gesaffelstein, and Junior. Check it out below, and help them get to play at Lollapalooza!
