- Gordon and Erick (collectively Botnek) met at a party in a small Canadian town, a town so small youve definitely never heard of it.
- They were the only humans in this small town who knew how to make mp3s from scratch.
- Their love for mp3s blossomed into a serious partnership after their first mp3, a Felix Cartel remix, won a contest on Dim Mak Records in 2009.- Botnek released their first EP Plonk on Discobelle Records in May of 2011.
- Botneks second EP Sriracha & Beer was released Nov 20, 2012 on Dim Mak Records.
- In 2013 Botnek released their follow up singles Through the Night & I Know on Dim Mak Records
- Over these years Botnek toured many of Earths fine continents, learning to speak 7 languages, 6 of which they invented
- Botnek mp3s have been played by (somewhat famous) DJs Avicii, Tisto, Calvin Harris, Hardwell, David Guetta, Afrojack, Diplo, Skrillex, Krewella, Steve Aoki, Porter Robinson, and Zedd- Botneks bootleg remix of Martin Garrix Animals became so popular that Martin Garrix went on to play their version in his sets instead of his own, which lead to an official release on Spinnin
- Botneks latest release, a remix of The Chainsmokers Selfie, skyrocketed to #1 overall on Beatport and stayed there for 2 weeks. Thousands of DJs including The?Chainsmokers praise Botnek for finally telling that selfie chick to shut the fuck up.
