5 EDM Songs That Should Be In Your Rotation


| April 22, 2013 - 8:17 pm

Here are five electronic tracks that we can’t stop listening to from last week:

Showtek and Noisecontrollers “Get Loose”
This tune was put out on Skrillex’s imprint, OWSLA, which doesn’t surprise us with scattered, monstrous chops and wild woops that sound Skrilly-ispred. Mashing elements of trance, house, dubstep and a splash of moombahton makes this a one-track a party that’ll kick any crowd into a frenzied uproar. Getting loose to this massive banger won’t be a problem for anyone with ears, including Tiësto who remixed it.

Tiësto Remix:

Tim Berg “Alcoholic” (CAZZETTE’S Trapleg Remix)
Avicii’s producer alias drops a booty clapper mixed with a dash of your favorite liquor that puts an extra bounce in your step. By 2:10, the beat pops, locks, and drops along with your drink due to everyone’s arms flailing a la Harlem Shake, because trap is all the same, right? Naht.

Pleasurekraft and Format B feat. Chris The Voice “Coltrane”
A tech-house ditty emboldened by Chris the Voice’s mysterious narrative and splashes of big band brass take on superhuman qualities and make for a gangster soundtrack to any Ferris Bueller antics you’re getting into today.

Daft Punk feat. Pharrell Williams and Nile Rodgers “Get Lucky”
After hitting #1 on charts across 46 countries in less than a day, “Get Lucky” also appears on VIBE’s 5 Dope Hip-Hop Tunes from Last Week list. After what feels like endless hype around the release, it’s clear that the that The Robots have universal appeal. They found a way to blend electro, disco, hip-hop, pop and funk into a globally reminiscent sound that both echoes the past and embodies the future of dance music. Get ready to love this song even when it becomes played out by next week.

Caspa feat. Diane Charlemagne “Reach for the Sky”
We can finally get the Alpha Omega album from dubstep herald, Caspa, on his own Dub Police label. But last week, we got chilled out and groovy with this old-school-feelin’ anthem “Reach For The Sky”, the last track off the new album.
