Steve Aoki

STEVE AOKI broke bands such as Bloc Party, The Bloody Beetroots, Klaxons and The Gossip through deftly marketed single and full-length releases on his Dim Mak label, which he began in 1996 and now has over 250 releases. Those releases often dovetailed into performances at his weekly Dim Mak nights including Dim Mak studios (still going strong every Tuesday night in the heart of Hollywood). As a label owner and shrewd curator of talent from around the world, those club nights have hosted the debut U.S. performances of hundreds of acts over the last decade from Lady Gaga to Ed Banger Records & Justice, Ke$ha, Skrillex, Kid Cudi, Kaiser Chiefs, No Age to Boys Noize.

AOKI's become a force of nature who has helped turn underground house, electro and harder-edged EDM with rap and rock leanings into the phenomena it is today: regularly pulling in 150,000+ fans at events such as Las Vegas' Electric Daisy Carnival and the debut of the IDentity national electronic touring festival.

AOKI's punk roots go back to the art of the house party, when he was just a student at UCSB and was already booking bands such as The Rapture, !!!, Jimmy Eat World, Hot Water Music and At the Drive-In at his Pickle Patch bash and forging relationships with big names that would end up serving him well in the future (he met Weezer's Rivers Cuomo at a secret show in college).

AOKI is in the next level of his incredible music career with WONDERLAND as his first proper full-length release. With WONDERLAND REMIXED and his DEADMEAT: LIVE AT ROSELAND BALLROOM DVD, Steve brings a lifetime's worth of passion for bands, DJs and artists of all stripes he has met and/or worked with over the past two decades to the forefront.


Angger Dimas

If Nasi Goreng, the mash up of rice, egg and vegetables is Indonesia's nation food dish then DJ and producer Angger Dimas represents Indonesia's national music dish with his mash up of chopped beats and pumping synths that are topped off with some Dutch inspired spicy sounds!

Originating from Jakarta, 23 year old Angger has been playing guitar since the young age of 7. He began his journey into the dance music scene only 3 short years ago. He caught his first major break signing with Australia's mighty Vicious Recordings in early 2009.

Since then Angger has continued pumping out remixes for the likes of Richard Vission & Static Revenger "I Like That" (Cool Cuts Club Chart UK, #1 ARIA Dance Chart Australia), Avicii, Afrojack, R3hab, Ian Carey, Oliver Twizt, Kaskade, Mind Electric, Tommie Sunshine, Amy Meredith, Tommy Trash, Sandro Silva and Havana Brown.

Since September 2011, after the success at Nocturnal Festival last year Angger has now toured the USA & Canada a second time. Angger's collaboration with Steve on his debut Album 'Wonderland' meant Angger joined Steve Aoki's epic North America 'Dead Meat Tour'.

In 2011 he teamed up with the Belgian duo Dimitri Vegas, Like Mike and Yves V, enjoying huge success on their collaborative release "Madagascar", penned for the Tommorowland festival, and once again they and Steve Aoki have teamed up for the 2012 Tommorowland Anthem 'Phat Bram' coinciding with Angger's announcement on the Tommorowland 2012 Line-up.

Angger has been working feverishly over the past year on his debut album set for release on Vicious Recordings in 2012, releasing several epic tracks including, 'Hey Freak', 'Release Me' (Ft.Polina) and 'RIA'. Later this year Angger will be attending the epic EDC festival in Las Vegas.


Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike

For Belgian brothers Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, the road to global superstardom has been nothing short of a Kansas-to-Oz whirlwind adventure. In less than six years, it's a story that reads like a bedtime fairy tale for thousands of young bedroom DJ/producers the world over. Sought after producers, remixers to the cream of the A-list elite, number 38 in the influential DJ Mag Top 100 and number 1 hit makers in their own right, the accolades the pair have clocked so far are equal to those some DJ stalwarts amass during a lifetime!

On The Road

Increasingly reading like the departure board of JFK Airport, Dimitri and Mike's international tour diary is booming, as fans around the world demand to witness for themselves the exhilarating performances that have made the duo one of the hottest dance tickets for 2012 and beyond. North America has fallen completely under the spell of the brothers, with an incredible six tours in 2012 alone including the prestigious Deadmeat Tour alongside Dimmak head honcho Steve Aoki. An entire month of touring in September and October established the brothers as one of the most popular acts to hit the continent – and it's not just there that Dimitri and Mike are making their mark. Their high energy unique take on the dance floor experience has seen South America, Latin America, the Middle East, South Africa, Asia and Europe fall at their feet and then rise up to demand more – which is exactly what they'll be getting as the pair continue to raise the bar and push harder to bring fans everywhere a piece of the Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike magic. Whether it's in legendary venues like Pacha Ibiza and NYC and Mansion in Miami to London's Ministry of Sound and Brazil's epic Green Valley, or on the stages of the world's biggest festivals where they have proved themselves time and again absolute kings of the arena – Mysteryland, Nocturnal Wonderland, Creamfields, Electric Daisy Carnival, Beatpatrol, Ultra Music Festival, XXXperience, Touch The Air, Sunrise, Touch The Air, Nocturnal Wonderland and of course, Tomorrowland – Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike are tearing up the performance rulebook with a passion.

Kings Of Tomorrowland And Beyond

Of all the venues and stages Dimitri and Mike grace their electric act with, it's probably the world's biggest EDM event Tomorrowland that they're most closely associated with. Organisers of the mega-festival, itself renowned the world over for surpassing that all-too-often mentioned 'next level' in spades, were so blown away with the natural power of the brothers' debut performance for them that they bought them on board to produce the official 2010 Tomorrowland Anthem 'Tomorrow Give In' with Dada Life and Tara McDonald. The collaboration was pure dynamite, so much so that when 2011's event came onto the horizon, the duo were once again the natural choice, this time teaming up with Grammy Award-winner Afrojack and Australian pop royalty NERVO to produce 'The Way We See The World'. Shooting straight to the top of the Beatport Charts and remaining there for weeks, it cemented the pair's undeniable hit-making prowess. 2012 and it was a no-brainer. 'Tomorrow Changed Today' became the first ever non-Avicii release on the LE7ELS label and struck chart gold. But the Tomorrowland singles aren't the brothers' only anthems. Highly accomplished producers with a string of top-flight results to their name, they scored No.1 in Belgium with Liquid Skies while their version of Pump Up The Jam with Techotronic on Refune was one of the most heavily supported tracks of the year. Size Records released 'Generation X'; Dimmak released the 'Stomp EP'; 'Loops & Things' was snapped up by Doorn Records; while their own Smash The House imprint soared to prominence as tracks like 'Madagascar', 'Rej', 'Alarma', 'Momentum' and more took Beatport by storm. Most recently tracks like 'Phat Brahms' with Steve Aoki and Annger Dimas and 'Madness' with Lil Jon and Coone have seen a growing relationship between the brothers and the mighty Dim Mak label. With upcoming singles that include collaborations with Laidback Luke, Sander van Doorn and Moguai, plus more work to come from STH rising stars Yves V and Wolfpack in the pipeline, the DVLM musical juggernaut is only going to get heavier, wider and faster.

The Remix Masters

If you're A-list and you want a remix, there's one name – or make that two – on everybody's lips. Fast becoming one of the go-to acts for major artists, the demand for Dimitri and Mike's editing skills has gone through the roof. From their debut remix 'Work That Body' back in 2009 which caught the attention of label boss Axwell, who immediately commissioned them for Abel Ramos's 'Rotterdam City of Love' and the pre-Swedish House Mafia's monster hit 'Leave The World Behind' by Steve Angello, Sebastian Ingrosso, Laidback Luke and Axwell himself; to arguably the biggest artist in the world right now, Lady Gaga, who requested the boys' take on her single 'Marry The Night', a remix that within hours of completion was scooped up for Radio 1's peak-time Friday night show Ready For The Weekend. In between the pair have reworked everyone from Billboard royalty Jennifer Lopez and Pitbull ('Papi'), MTV favourites LMFAO ('Champagne Showers'), the infamous Swedish House Mafia ('Leave The World Behind'), Tiesto, Snoop Dogg, Bob Sinclar, Mary J Blige, Sean Paul and going full circle to team up in the studio with Axwell for their massive remix of 'One Look'.

Just The Beginning…

So yes, it seems to be a veritable fairytale story emerging from this talented and grittily determined duo from Belgium. But ladies and gentlemen, let's not forget that their story is still very much in its infancy and that this really is just the very beginning of what will be a very eventful and successful journey. Get involved and jump on board!
