Exclusive Guest Playlist: Dim Mak Records

Talia Aroshas
Talia Aroshas is a Capricorn semi vegetarian who obtained her master’s degree in the art of coat checking after four years of intense study at NYC’s mostly highly regarded titty bar. Here, she double majored in high-brow sarcasm, and graduated with honors in pungent irony. As a result, she is fluent in both languages. All coats aside, after two years as Editor in Chief of one of NYC’s leading nightlife blogs, Talia realized her greatest passion to be music and is very excited to be heading 20something’s Create vertical, mostly for the free concert access it will get her.

We at 20something are always trying to bring you the hottest, freshest tunes out there. And what better way to do that than to recruit some of the biggest names in music as guest curators? Today’s guest playlist comes from the offices of Dim Mak Records, one of the biggest labels in electronic music. 20 songs long, it’s the perfect way to jump start your week with all the right feels. 


In 1996, Steve Aoki formed Dim Mak out of his college bedroom as a means to fulfill his vision of launching emerging artists and trends. Rooted in punk rock and indie music, Dim Mak broke acts like Bloc Party and hosted Los Angeles events headlined by outfits such as Justice, Daft Punk and The Kills before they made it big.

Since propelling the electro-punk movement in the late 2000’s with artists like The Bloody Beetroots and MSTRKRFT, the label has continued to push boundaries with a kaleidoscopic catalogue that ranges from main room house and raucous trap, to indie-pop and hip-hop (and everything in between).

After nearly 20 years of curating forward-thinking, cross-genre releases, Dim Mak remains dedicated to music innovation and our playlist embodies our love for cutting-edge sounds from all corners of the dance floor.
