Friday Rewind: 10 EDM Essentials For Your Rotation


/ November 8, 2013

The hottest electronic dance music to kickoff your weekend starts here:

Aligning Minds – My Heart Is Love (Psymbionic Remix)
Psymbionic turns out a profound “My Heart Is Love” remix for Aligning Minds’ remix project. Though it is available for free, you might consider purchasing the track/album, as proceeds go to rainforest conservation.

Clinton VanSciver – 10K Bootleg Pack
Clinton VanSciver celebrates a social media milestone and gives away this massive bootleg package as party loot. Own it.

Moiez feat. Anoop Desai – “City On A Hill”
Canada’s Moiez joins sonic forces with American Idol finalist Anoop Desai for the beautifully uplifting “City On A Hill”. It’s a city in which progressive piano-led melodies reign king. Cop it Nov 11 from Cr2. Sneak a peek.

Airwolf – “Hanging On”
Australian DJ/producer Airwolf takes notes from everyone’s favorite robots for his latest single. “Hanging On” is fun and upbeat; the perfect pick-me-up jam. Sneak a peek.

Mat Zo – Damage Control
Mat Zo continues to impress with his versatile and intelligent productions. Damage Control, released via Anjunabeats, is beautifully curated and includes elements of inspiration from all genres. Zo gets funky in “Easy” (feat. Porter Robinson), trapped by “Caller ID”, electro-fied in “Pyramid Scheme” (feat. Chuck D), and emotional for “The Sky” (feat. Linnea Schossow).

Martin Garrix & Jay Hardway – “Wizard”
With a wave of his magic wand, Martin Garrix (with the aid of Jay Hardway) makes another electro house anthem appear.

R3hab, NERVO & Ummet Ozcan – “Revolution”
Much is to be expected of this DJ-studded single, and we are pleased to say that “Revolution” is a showstopper. Cop it next week (Nov 11) via Spinnin, but in the meantime, sneak a peek.

The Crystal Method feat. Dia Frampton – “Over It”
All eyes are on The Crystal Method as they gear up for their first album release in four years. The lead single from the album, “Over It,” is a synth-laden, glitch-heavy tune, featuring the haunting vocals of rocker Dia Frampton. Listen carefully as the hard-hitting single is balanced by some stunning string work on the break down. Own it (free).

AC Slater feat. Dell Harris – “Go Harder”
Instead of taking the direction we expect him to, AC Slater “Go[es] Harder” and we’re salivating for more.

Major Lazer – “Jet Blue Jet” (Tropkillaz Remix)
Tropkillaz soar to new heights with their “Jet Blue Jet” remix. Swapping out the dancehall sound in favor of a trappy beat, the duo go up, up, and away.
