"Never Been" (Original Mix) - Angger Dimas

Steve Aoki's Dim Mak is home to an impressive collection of notable producers across multiple genres, and Angger Dimas is quickly growing into his shoes by experimenting with various sounds and styles. Most of his early material leaned towards traditional Electro House, but his "Don't Look Back in Angger" EP shows some experimentation with nu-disco and moombah (see "Good Stuff" for the moombah collaboration with Vandalism). "Never Been" kicks off with a repeating vocal loop that leads into the building verse, and luckily the song structure changes quickly so that the vocal loop doesn't get annoying. Funky guitar riffs give the song some fun vibes while simultaneously complimenting the bouncy synths. It's really refreshing to hear a playful, club-friendly electro track without the traditional drop in the middle. "Never Been" is a strong release by this young Indonesian producer and there are definitely some bright paths ahead of him.

"Anxiety" (Original Mix) - Charlie Darker

It seems like every big name and label these days are dying to get their hands on the latest Charlie Darker experiment. The young producer from Quebec has already blossomed into one of the scene's most closely watched openers, sharing the stage with the likes of Zedd, LA Riots, and Mord Fustang. Over the past year no brand has been able to keep him within their reach, with this being his second release for Dim Mak after putting out hit records on Kindergarten and Mad Decent since late last year. After taking a listen to his repertoire it's no wonder why he can't seem to sit still. Balancing the heavy distortions of bass music alongside coherent and smooth melodies of Progressive seems to be what everyone's after these days, and Darker is already outpacing a lot of the top dogs. Grab his latest release today and watch out for his upcoming release with DallasK!

Track of the Day: "Slow Down" - Showtek

The two Dutch brothers are known for dropping straight bangers, and there's no signs of a "Slow Down!" This is straight Electro House with a little Hardstyle flair that makes for an absolutely insane break. I am loving the synths the two add in after the drop to slow down the track, which makes it even more intense come round two. That crazy siren sound they put in at 3:10 is wild! While Showtek will not be performing at Ultra this year, we're selling tickets to a bunch of shows they'll be at throughout the week so get them here!

"Treat Me Right" - Keys N Krates

I love artists that are willing to try new things. Music is meant to move forward, and Keys N Krates are definitely firm believers in this.  Their new single "Treat Me Right" came out yesterday on Dim Mak, and with an amazing hip-hop beat to it combined with Electro synths, it's sure to satisfy the ears of EDM enthusiasts. Keys N Krates has been blowing up on the internet and have earned praise from artists like TNGHT and Diplo, so be sure to keep an eye open for these pioneers and their game-changing sound in the near future.

Track of the Day: "Can You Feel It" - Acetronik

Dim Mak continues to dominate the "alternative" genres of EDM, in most recent weeks starting to further explore the Deep House wave that is starting to swell. "Can You Feel It" is Acetronik's latest Electro experiment, and it breaks a lot of boundaries. The Jersey producer first got his break with the release of the single "Yours Tonight" back in '11, garnering radio support from the likes of Tiësto. His follow up was the debut EP in the form of Make Me Feel Good, which hovered in the top 10 Electro House releases for quite a while. 2013 is here and the age of the robot is near, so welcome back Acetronik with this clean head-bopping tune!

Out now on Beatport!
