Here at TS25, I always try to bring you the latest in EDM, as well as tracks that might not be new, but they are totally worth a listen. A majority of the content I post within the EDM realm is usually house or some type of electro, but I can’t forget Dance Music.
Out of all the genres within EDM that are becoming mainstream, Dance Music is something you can easily hear on the radio nowadays and in the hottest clubs. I’m still waiting for the day when stations here in D.C. will wise up and play house, but for now NYC, Chicago, Miami, and SF have that on lockdown (house scenes are huge there.)
Dance Music is truly growing in the states, whereas in other regions abroad Dance Music was surely a lifestyle and not a trendy uprising. But at least the states have finally smartened up and realized that Dance Music, as well as DNB, dubstep, house, and other genres under the umbrella of EDM are the future (even though they’ve been around for ages.)
Since I’m a huge music lover, I’m not one to leave out a certain genre, and it’s only just that I post some of my favorite new Dance Music hits. So ladies and gents, check out some fresh dance tracks that should totally be added to your weekend playlist.
P.S. I’m trying not to be biased, but I really do love music from the Ministry of Sound (MOS) label. Hehe, so you’ll noticed I choose a lot of tracks from MOS.
Kaskade. Need I say more? AWESOMENESS!
Ah, I love this song! I really like Romanian Dance Music. Thumbs up for Romania!!!
Such a beautiful track. Very atmospheric. Listening to it makes you want to drift off into a beautiful dream…
Came out early in the summer, but this song never gets old for me. Such an awesome track. Duh, Avicii rocks!
Same as the one above, older track (summer release), but still awesome!
By no means necessary do I possess the superpower (nor the patience) for dealing with the absurdity of ignorance plaguing YouTube commenters, which is why I mainly express my opinions on my blog.
In regards to my aforementioned statement and how it relates to this post, well it’s partially due to the fact that high levels of negativity always surround Skrillex. Now, yes, I did write an article called “Skrillex Didn’t Invent Dubstep, the 90s Did,”mainly because I got tired of people saying he started dubstep; absolutely not true. Yet, that doesn’t mean that I have malice in my heart towards Skrillex, I actually like the young fella.
And I especially like his latest remix of Birdy Nam Nam’s ”Goin’ In.” Birdy Nam Nam is composed of four DJs from France, and they have been critically acclaimed for their insanely dope skills on the turntables; them dudes be killing it!
So what happens when you take four French DJs and team them up with an American dubstep guru? Well, you get a legit remix titled “Goin’ In (Skrillex ‘Goin’ Hard’ Mix.”) And while some people out there are hating on it or saying it sucks, well I’m going have to say that I personally like the remix + the original as well. Yeah…it’s legit. Trust me, give it a listen and see for yourself.
The Original Track
Yet, when I saw Mike Tompkins’ latest viral video featuring an insanely dope acapella version of Skrillex’s “Cinema” dubstep remix vs. Santigold’s “Disperate Youth”, I knew I just had to post the video. Duh, it’s Mike Tompkins, so you know it’s insanely dope.
The Canadian YouTube sensation never ceases to amaze viewers with his ability to create cool sounds using his voice, mouth, and cool technology. For this video, Mike used a projector and ableton live software to create the full effect of what an acapella dubstep video should look + sound like.
I’m a big fan of the original “Cinema” track, the Skrillex remix, and I like Santigold’s “Disperate Youth,” so in the end the video is a nice fusion of creativity. Ah, the power of creativity and the ability to remix. Gotta love it!
TGIF! Ever since I turned 21 and started hanging out in D.C. more, I realized that my weekends don’t have to be so boring. There is so much to do in the city, and I especially love anything that has to do with EDM. You might think that D.C. is just filled with politics and buppies, but it has a cool culture of EDM fans that attend various events and just love good music.
Most of the places I end up going (which I will blog about) play house music, but that doesn’t mean I’ve forgotten about serious dancefloor fillers. I love a track that just pulsates throughout the club and you can’t help but to finish off your drink (or put it down & call it quits) and start dancing the night away. I’m not one of those people that can hold my drink and try to look cute while dancing to some serious beats, especially if a track comes on that catches my attention.
One of this tracks that truly caught my attention is John De Sohn’s “Long Time” featuring Andreas Moe. The track has a nice rise, a really good drop, and the remix by Benny Benassi makes you just want to dance, fist pump, and holler (not sure why you’d do that, but sure, ok!)
Check out the remix below. If you’re a fan of Benny Benassi and his remixes, then I’m sure you’ll love his remix of John De Sohn and Andreas Moe’s “Long Time.”
Here’s the original track + music video.
