NICK TALOS “REWIND”
As we wrap up another incredible year at DIM MAK, we marvel at all the amazing music that has come through New Noise – tracks we’ve been able to push out and share with the world, exposing artists and giving them a proper platform for their sound to be heard.
We wanted to end the year on a high note, and we found that with Nick Talos’ “Rewind.” For his New Noise debut, the Berlin-based producer delivers a low-end deep house number with melodic chords and big grimy baselines. The track has all the powerful qualities that we look for in a New Noise release.
THE CLASSIC KIDS “JUST BEGUN”
Meet The Classic Kids, a supremely infectious foursome with a most appropriate name. Ranging in ages from 21 to 26, Eric James (Bass/Vocals), Matty Boy (Guitar/Vocals), Max Dean (Guitar) and Mikey G (Drums), are, for all intents and purposes, still kids. But, together, they’ve blended retro influences with modern sensibilities to create an undeniably classic sound.

HAYLEY CANNON “WHO ARE YOU?”
An accomplished pianist and violinist, London-based Hayley picked up the keys aged a very young 4 years old. Waiting for the right moment to pen the album she’d spent her life waiting to record, Hayley retreated to the solitude of a French hamlet.
“I was resolved to redress the balance, and get a piece of me back”, she says of that time. First-written was ‘Blood And Bone’, before Hayley returned to London for more writing and recording, involving the ubiquitous creative overnights in the studio. “During that time music was just pouring out of me,and capturing it in the recording studio was the most rewarding thing I’ve ever done.”
DJ HARRISON “PANTRY”
In this digital age, it’s unusual to find an artist dedicated to embracing a true analog approach. DJ Harrison is from that rare breed, and his new EP ‘Songs From The Black Water’ proves it. Although musically grounded in the modern era, this EP was not made on a laptop, and you won’t find it on Soundcloud (other than a single and teaser), iTunes, Spotify, Beatport or anywhere else as a digital product. The place you will find it is on a cassette, where the authenticity of tape brings out the organic, feel-good vibes of Harrison’s Dilla-esque hip hop soundscapes.
SACHA KORN “FEUER” VIDEO
“Feuer” is the newest album from the Neue Deutsche Härte musician Sacha Korn (1975, Berlin). The album comes 2 years after the release of “Funkenflug” and sees Sacha Korn back with even more rage. Musically you can expect heavy guitar riffs mixed with melancholic melodies carrying words of longing, homeland, identity and violence. A perfect soundtrack for a round in the boxing ring or a heavy workout in the gym.
The band recorded the album in Stockholm at Fascination (Jens Bogren) and Berlin.

EXQUIRE DROPS NEW VIDEO FOR “GOLD MOUTH PIRANHA (SOME WISE QUOTE MY POPS SAID)”
Exquire is a Brooklyn native, a street poet, with natural gift to articulate experiences and emotion in his unfiltered delivery. He has the makings of classic hip-hop that doesn’t conform to trends— he dictates them. He is honest, living what he raps about, that isn’t all about just making words rhyme. EXquire doesn’t sugarcoat his irreverent persona or his life’s experiences. He challenges our ears spitting references to Marcus Garvey, the Iliad, and X-Men from his mouth of gold fronts.
