Under the guise of his bleep-happy studio alias Clockwork, Henry Steinway steps up to release his new two-track EP for Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak Records titled ‘Surge’.

With titanic surges of bass in full effect, title track ‘Surge’ takes the lead with resonant synth work and chugging Electro House builds alongside the voice of self-professed dirty talker Wynter Gordon. On the flip, ‘Tremor’ extends on the wizardry that pervaded his remix of Congorock’s ‘Bless Di Nation’ for an equally stellar B-side of his signature misshapen chord play.

In the aftermath of the release date announcement for ‘Mammoth’, Belgian brothers Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike combine forces with hardstyle monger Coone and American rapper Lil’ Jon to release the long-awaited ‘Madness’ through Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak Records.

While Coone’s hard-hitting stylings can be immediately traced from the outset of the track’s cataclysmic drops, the Belgian duo’s knack for stadium-esque synth work is all too visible throughout the track. Coupled with the attitude-filled top line from Lil’ Jon, ‘Madness’ makes for a genre-defying inaugural release of 2013 for the Belgian-American foursome.

Following up on the release of his eclectic debut artist album, DJ DLG starts off the New Year by releasing his official remix duties for London based Ali Love’s ‘Love Harder’ off of Dim Mak Records.

While the London producer’s original can surprisingly still be considered something of an underdog, DJ DLG’s Electronica getup proves a fresh shade of inspiration to the 2010 original. While Love’s soulful vocal stylings play a crucial part in the composition of this ambitious remix, it is the deep low-end riffage, ceaseless melodic surges and tainted high-end progressions that drive home this remix of the forward-thinking proportions that have been all too absent of late.

Out now on iTunes and Amazon.

Back to follow up their synth-laden remix duties for Trey Songz ‘Heart Attack,‘ Canadian duo Dzeko & Torres make their Dim Mak Records debut with a new three-track EP called ‘Hey.’

Turning their heads to the heavier-set realms of Dance music, the duo borrow a page from the Bassjackers playbook for an EP rife with piercing lead play throughout. Met with scattered vocal chants and breakdown segments of uplifting melodic vibes, the ‘Hey’ EP extends the belief that the industrious wanderings of Dzeko & Torres have not been limited to one solitary genre.

Where the still unreleased ‘Surrender‘ set the tone for a future of well-oiled gems earlier this year, Amsterdam’s Marc Benjamin returns to make his Dim Mak Records debut with an uplifting new track in ‘Games’.

Encapsulating an energy that derives away from the familiar moody blues of winter, ‘Games’ sets a canvas of Progressive beats and prancing synth play to deal a blow of euphoric vibes left right and centre. In an industry faced with countless repetitions and recycled riffs, Benjamin’s first release on the record label of Steve Aoki spells melodic club fuel at its finer.

With his second studio album, ‘Different Faces’, still doing the rounds, Dim Mak regular Felix Cartal hits back with a new original release for the Steve Aoki imprint. Extending on the magic that has seen him gain considerable recognition from across the board, Cartal teams up alongside Natalie Angiuli for a self-fulfilling romp of distored lead work, frantic melodic peaks, and the tender vocal stylings of the Los Angeles singer. We may have heard it all before, but oversubscribed sub genre remains aurally stimulating in the hands of Felix Cartal.

Having hammered the digital market with his eclectic studio spoils throughout the year, longserving Swedish heavyweight John Dahlback drops yet another resilient bombshell in the form of A-side ‘The Trip’. Set to lead his debut EP for Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak imprint, ‘The Trip’ utilizes scratchy leads and rasping low-end bass surges without the addition of overused Electro hallmarks. Joining EP B-sides ‘China Lake’ and ‘Jackal Mackson’ to seal his one of his darkest and surprising EPs to date, Dahlback once again proves himself an eclectic and consistent force amid European House music with yet another ante-upping release for 2012.
