Dim Mak/RCRD LBL Madness

I know a lot of you out there hate on Dim Mak a lot of the time, and in some ways I get it, but lately they've been working with RCRD LBL to release some great new tracks, and that can't go ignored. Felix Cartal's first official Dim Mak EP is soon to be released, and features two older tracks mixed in with two brand new ones. They all have that similar hard electro sound, but he's good enough at it to make it one hell of an EP. As a little teaser they had Bird Peterson remix one of the tracks, "Skeleton". Bird Peterson's been on fire lately, shooting off track after track, every single one as good as the next. His remix stays true to the original, but adds a little needed melody, and diversity. Keep a look out for the Skeleton EP that should be out any day now. Steve Aoki's latest remix has also been put on RCRD LBL recently. He took N.A.S.A.'s star filled hit "Gifted", and pretty simply made it an electro track. He added a nice bassline, and reworked the vocals until he had turned the track in to something that every DJ could play out. I expect to be hearing this one around for a while.



This track isn't on RCRD LBL or anything, but it comes from Dim Mak homie Dan Sena so I thought I'd throw it on here. Despite the wild tracks above, this might be the hardest hitting thing here. Here's what he had to say about it...
"I missed out on Coachella this year, so instead I spent my weekend at home
writing this track. I'm very satisfied with the results. The track contains a sample from the Haunted Mansion ride at Disneyland, hence the title."
Sounds like had had some good inspiration. All he had to do was turn on the distortion, and let the music flow. Super fun track.

Your liking of Dim Mak wouldn't happen to have anything to do with that pretty little add on the right there, would it? Hoping to make your way on that label I'm guessing? LA kids.

You have it reversed. Those adds on there have to do with my liking of the label. Me liking there label came first. We don't even get paid for those.

i just dont understand the mentality of some people. crist, if you dont want to hear it, if you dont like it. why comment on it? why read it? why download it? why not move the fuck on to something you wont complain about. this isnt forced down your throat. go read about something you care about. its like people take it as a personal offence that somebody posted about a track or record label they don't like. Z's doing this because he likes the music. so do his readers....i dont understand what you achive by voicing your hate about something to people who dont care anyway?

I wonder how wealthy their parents are

J said...

yo this is some bullshit. Why do people have to hate so hard. It's not about the money, its not about the labels. Its about the fucking music. If your too caught up with the labels and the money then you clearly don't understand the music. I recommend you download every track this blog has ever posted and I guarantee that you will reconsider everything you said. And you wonder how wealthy our parents are? Maybe you should ask yourself how tiny your dick is. Go fuck yourself you self righteous dick.
