Autoerotique’s wubby Kids Don’t Care EP gets a facelift (or bass-lift, if you will) in the form of four insane remixes. Autoerotique kicks off the package by flipping “Ratchet” on its head with a nasty trap VIP edit before EXSSV delivers a dubstep-influenced monster. Salt Lake City’s own Hearts provides a thumping bass-house rework while TheElement goes a similar route, closing out the package with a rhythmic low-end banger.
Since Autoerotique’s original Kids Don’t Care EP reached #1 in Beatport’s Top 100 Electro House releases, the Toronto-born bass producer hasn’t missed a beat this year. After kicking off 2016 with a Juno nomination for “Dance Recording of the Year for “Badman (Torro Torro Remix)” with fellow Dim Mak slugger Max Styler, he dropped “The Sound” with dancehall barons Major Lazer. He followed with the bass house heater “OTF” on Fly Eye with fellow Toronto native Hunter Siegel, rapidly gaining support from Calvin Harris,Skrillex, Martin Garrix, Hardwell, Oliver Heldens, Kaskade, Afrojack, and The Chainsmokers, who dropped it live at Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas. Keeping the momentum alive, he then unleashed his massive Steve Aoki collaboration “ILYSM,” which appeared on the Dim Mak label head’s 4OKI EP and has been streamed nearly 4.5M times on Spotify.
While the above-mentioned tracks are appearing frequently at big shows nationwide, so is the man behind them. Just this year, Autoerotique has thrown down at Mad Decent Party in Fort Lauderdale, HARD Summer in Los Angeles, and the world-renowned Red Rocks Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado. He is also set to make an appearance at The Talking Stick Resort for Dim Mak’s official 20th Anniversary show in Scottsdale after dropping a killer set at the tour’s Miami stop.
