The freebie pack comes equipped with remixes from Steve Aoki, The Glitch Mob, Beats Antique, Terravita, ill.Gates, and you guessed it, Bassnectar.

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.

So grab ahold of the new year with this boomer, and I hope to see you all on Tuesdays @ Dim Mak Studios.

I was anxious to post this track for you guys because I am so glad to finally clear its rumors. The buzz after this past year’s Ultra Music Festival left many new tunes unidentified and gossiped, namely the “collab” between Afrojack & Steve Aoki in what was being deemed ‘Morfium.’ With thousands of you tube comments gasping for more information, Afrojack has released Lost & Found 2, the follow up slice of the big guys unreleased crate. The contents lies ‘Show Me Your Rage’, the true name of the track. Love this side of Afrojack because it reminds me of those dirty washing-machine speaking sounds from the Bloody Beetroots in 2008.

I hope you all had a great weekend! We’re catching up on this Monday with Steve Aoki & Datsik’s tour, David Guetta’s handprint ceremony, Pretty Lights teaming up with BitTorrent, a Plastikman video trilogy, and the BBC Sound 2012 nominees.

Dim Mak chief Steve Aoki heads back to the Grove of Anaheim, this time accompanied by LA bass aficionado 12th Planet and massively supported canuck Autoerotique. Both Aoki and 12th planet fresh off international tours will be truely bringing it home as they join forces in southern California to destroy this Thanksgiving weekend.

Yesterday, our boys Josh & Angelo from PeaceTreaty sent us over a pair of previews of their upcoming remixes that will be hitting Beatport in the next couple of weeks, and we are impressed as usual. The first track is a hot n’ heavy new take on Moby‘s ‘After,’ complete with a light synthy Big Room build and a heavy bassline drop that I can’t wait to hear on some professional speakers. Already gaining support from Steve Angello, Hardwell, and Tommy Trash, this remix will be released on Moby’s Lil Idiot Records on Monday, October 31st. The second remix on our plate is Diplo & Oliver Twizt‘s ‘Go,’ and personally, I can really hear the always-improving PeaceTreaty signature sound in this one. This EP will be released on Mad Decent on November 8th, and you probably have heard it played out already by some people you may have heard of: Tiesto, Benny Benassi, Afrojack, Chuckie, and Mr. Aoki. Keep ‘em coming fellas!
Since we launched the remix competition last month for our good friend Clockwork‘s track, ‘Weaver,’ the stems were downloaded by hundreds and we received more submissions than we knew what to do with! But after a lot of listening and judging, Clockwork has determined his favorite three new takes on his original big room blaster, and we are stoked to announce them for you today.
The decision wasn’t easy, but the duo from Los Angeles known as No Body proved to have the best remix amongst all of the producers in the competition. The new rendition sticks to Clockwork’s original Big Room sound, but added some fresh new flavor that I just can’t wait to hear played out. As stated in the original competition announcement, the winning remix will be played out by Clockwork at this year’s Hard Halloween in Los Angeles, so congratulations Kevin and Ruben of No Body, you’ll be hearing it out on a proper system in a month and expect a GDD™ swag pack in the mail soon!
We’d also like to give a huge thanks to all of the remixers that submitted to this competition. If yours didn’t make it into the top 3 this time, don’t worry, we’ll be hosting plenty more competitions in the near future!
Clockwork will be releasing a new EP on Dim Mak this year called Squad Up and it’s already smashing crowds around the country. Check out this video below of Mr. Aoki dropping it at Identity Festival in San Diego a few weeks ago.
