    AUTOEROTIQUE // CAN / DIM MAK

    Autoerotique stores electro, techno, house, Dutch house, Dutch-colonial house, rave, rock, rave-rock, indie-rock and even ska on speed dial and calls them up frequently. Their effortlessly protein, shape-shifting sound can careen wildly from project to project, so it’s not unexpected to hear them transform from Dutch house to, say, Norwegian black metal on the same record – thus, earning them the lazily au courant nick name “Autobots”.

    The ambiguously great duo’s Keith Robertson & David Henderson were homegrown and shifted-into-shape within the multi-culti bustle of Toronto’s west end. Cutting their collective teeth as indie band producers they hop-scotched over to dance music after receiving a marijuana-lubricated epiphany to Groove Armanda’s first album at the tenderized age of 17—only to be swallowed whole by the city’s burgeoning dance scene.

    After toiling as producers for EMI during 2008, these working class heroes took a much-deserved personal break and like Martin & Lewis, Simon & Garfunkel, The Captain & Tannille etc. before them, steered their separate courses and architected their respective solo projects (Keith’s being a slightly electro-house EP, & Dave’s an almost terrifyingly intense prog-opera set). It wasn’t until late 2008 when the group reunited putting all side projects conveniently aside.

    Returning in early 2009 and signing with Dim Mak Records, the duo streaked like a tracer bullet through the strobe-lit sky of the T.O. dance community with their official first single Gladiator featuring remixes by Aoki/AM, Klever, Larry Tee/Alexander Technique, The Faint, AC Slater & Milano.

    Following the Gladiator EP, Autoerotique showed off the many colorful arrows in their musical quiver releasing remixes for Lykke Li, Shinichi Osawa, Chris Cornell & Timbaland, Diplo & Laidback Luke, Larry Tee, B. Rich, Disco Bisquits, Fischerspooner, Weezer, Benny Benassi, and Tiesto. Dim Mak just released the latest EP appropriately titled “Turn Up The Volume” with an eye-catching music video attached. The video has been blogged continuously by CBS News and In The Mix.

    BLATTA & INESHA// ITALY / DIM MAK/ CRUX/ WAREHOUSE

    It’s no surprise that Italian duo Blatta & Inesha were slated by XLR8R magazine alongside countrymen Crookers, Bloody Beetroots, and Congorock as “six of the country’s top party rockers.” With roots in Rock & Roll and turntablism (Inesha is a 2-time Italian DMC Champion) it’s always guaranteed that Blatta & Inesha is going to put on a good show.

    Splatters of sweat, chaos, and anything from Techno to Electro to 70’s Italo Disco are the ingredients for their shows and music and the reason for their constantly growing popularity and rabid fan base.

    With releases on Dim Mak, Kitsune, Lektroluv, Mental Groove, Wearhouse, and Crux, to name a few, and remixes for Plump DJs, Meat Katie, Benny Benassi, GTRONIC, Pink is Punk on Universal Records, and a recent collaboration with Mustard Pimp the guys catalogue only continues to grow and impress.

    With an upcoming track on Dim Mak in 2012 and a new collaboration with the LA duo Casino Gold their bass driven Techno-Electro hybrid will continue being blasted around the world. Whether it’s playing tastemaker festivals like Marsatac in France for 10,000 people alongside the likes of Mr. Oizo and Erol Alkan, or World DJ Festival in Seoul, South Korea, or at super clubs like Womb in Tokyo, the duo has been working crowds all over the world into a frenzy for years. With support from other top tier DJs, tunes topping industry charts, and repetitive plays on BBC Radio 1 shows hosted by Kissy Sell Out and Annie Nightingale, there’s no doubt Blatta & Inesha are here to make some noise.

    Recently the boys hailing from Sicily have turned their bass music sound into an underground music phenomenon across Europe and the US after receiving a 5 star review in DJ Mag (“No doubt on heavy rotation by Boys Noize…”) Solidifying B&I’s propensity for Techno they collaborated on a track with Calvertron, which has won a spot on Lee Mortimer’s new Wearhouse compilation that includes tracks also by Laidback Luke.

    Electro and Techno are not the only place they are known for their talents. They have been commissioned to remix top indie pop acts such as Pony Pony Run Run, Telepopmusik and Axel and the Farmers, all of which have enjoyed time as Hype Machine’s #1 favorited tracks. As well as a recent team up with Italy’s budding hip hop superstars Videomind, for which B&I created a remix that will be the bands first single to drop for the new album and is set with MTV Italy to be on regular rotation.
