Via RVCA's Artist Network Program (ANP), Steve Aoki and PM Tenore have collaborated to design the Dim Mak x RVCA 20th Anniversary Collection. The capsule couldn’t have happened at a better time — it’s Dim Mak’s 20th anniversary this year. Though Dim Mak and RVCA have their roots in different industries, the Dim Mak x RVCA collaboration captures the synergy between cutting-edge music and fashion through each piece made.
Parisian rave cave Concrete will celebrate its fifth anniversary with a 14-date European tour, throwing parties in a host of European cities from August to December.
The parties will feature sets from the clubs residents, which include Antigone, Behzad & Amarou, Ben Vedren, Cabanna, Francois X, Leo Pol, Lowris, and Shlømo.
The first party will take place this weekend at Lyon’s Le Sucre, before moving onto Berlin’s Hoppetosse and Club der Visionaere on Saturday 20th and 21st August respectively.
“In the beginning there was Jack... and Jack had a groove!” So the old Mr Fingers track goes, but of course music made for dancing to in clubs, as we know it now, began far earlier than the house that rose from Chicago in the mid-1980s.

KiNK and KÖLSCH have been enlisted to remix two classic Sven Väth tracks for a new EP that celebrates Cocoon’s 20th anniversary.
KiNK has remixed 1992’s ‘Accident In Paradise’, whilst Danish techno-with-feels don KÖLSCH has remixed ‘Robot’, which is taken from the 1994 album 'The Harlequin, The Robot And The Ballet-Dancer'.
You can hear snippets of both tracks below which clock in at a weighty nine-minutes each.
Opening a vinyl-only store in Soho just over 10 years ago was seen as a risky move. The area was, and still is, saturated with independent record shops and at the time, record shops were fighting for survival. But Phonica Records has proven resilient to music industry vagaries, changing formats and consumption habits, and a recession.
