I would like to share with everyone some awesome electronic dance tracks that have found themselves nestled somewhere in my top played list in iTunes.
This is for anyone who still classifies all electronic music as ‘techno,’ or who turn their alt-rock noses up at their friends for listening to what they choose to describe only as ‘uhn tiss uhn tiss uhn tiss.’ The same way that your indie buddies link you stuff like this, these cats could also maybe give this type of music a chance too. I have here a blister pack of electro house champions that they would, and you would, regret missing out on…
In my opinion, the electro house genre is the edm world’s best foot forward. It’s fairly broad, and, although it absolutely does not encapsulate the progressive house of Swedish House Mafia and Avicii, it’s dynamic nature basically just allows for there to be a track for everybody’s taste. So I’ve got for you a somewhat diverse selection of outstanding electro-house songs for you to show your friends when they need ‘some new music.’ Now, note that I don’t plan on shoving Skrillex and Deadmau5 down your throats and concluding with an ‘Isn’t edm awesome?’ Also, You’re not going to catch me describing my tracks with cringy similes that would be more appropriate in explaining the ungodly state of this man’s bedroom. I’ve heard a lot of electro house, and I would even say that it’s my specialty within edm (bias alert), so trust that what I’m about to show you isn’t the music that your wide-eyed raver pals shared with BLOCK CAPITALS and youtube links (fourth unnecessary hyperlink). This is the stuff that had always deserved your proper attention but, unfortunately for you, might never have gotten it.
Yeah you KNOW this song, but have you ever really tried to appreciate it outside of the club? Tell me what you think once 0:37 rolls around.
Drops at 1:30. You’re welcome.
No one can make fun of you for listening to this remix. Drops at 0:34.
Even if you’re a hardcore edm fan, this electro-house straight from Brazil might seem a little exotic to you – it’s a lot more edgy than your mainstream electro house, doesn’t incorporate vocals, works more with instrumental samples and utilizes some pretty tasteful staccato in the drop. Wait for 1:15.
Perhaps one of my favorite edm tracks of all time. The buildup is epic in the experience-emotional-and-motivational-flashback-before-charging-into-enemies-with-sword-while-outnumbered sense of the word. The drop itself, perched up at 1:30, will explain the rest.
Well the Aussies had to make it into my post somehow…
All that’s happening here is Peo De Pitte wholly possessing the innocent body of the original song and twisting it into an upside-down and inside-out version of itself – in the absolute best way possible. It’s this kind of extreme reconstruction of songs that really impress me.
