You know those grimy basement parties where you used to dance your face off during your raver years? Their spirit lives on at Dim Mak Studios. For many, the gritty vibe, alleyway entrance and graffiti-covered stairways may be a little too hardknock. But for those who are seeking hear-em-before-they-break live acts and DJ talent, a monster soundsystem, and parties with a hyped crowd of young, creative types, Dim Mak Studios is the place to let loose. Helmed by DJ Steve Aoki, who created the Dim Mak lifestyle brand (which also includes a record label, events arm, t-shirt and accessories line and a surprising number of followers who brandish Dim Mak tattoos), the space delivers progressive one-off parties and its weekly “Dim Mak Tuesdays,” which has hosted an impressive roster of genre-spanning talent including Daft Punk, Skrillex, Lady Gaga, Bloc Party and Uffie in its nearly decade-long tenure.
