Friday Rewind: 7 EDM Essentials For Your Rotation


/ May 31, 2013

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

Seven Lions feat Minnesota & Mimi Page “Fevers”
This massive collaboration is a force to be reckoned with thanks to a blend of wispy vocals, dotted with ethereal piano and heavy bass. It’s trance-step, with an overwhelming cascade of dubbed out breaks. The trio summons sonic harmony to put forth a truly emotional masterpiece. Own it (free).

Adrian Lux “Damaged”
Adrian Lux accompanies commanding vocals by Swedish Alva Tång (of indie band Allvaret) with a smooth guitar progression and tranquil melody. The progressive house track is bone-chilling, and just a taste of Lux’s forthcoming second album! Own it.

Empire of The Sun “Alive (David Guetta Remix)”
Mellow and melodic with a sprinkling of some Dirty Dutch house at the drop, David Guetta takes the
cake (and the frosting) with his remix for Empire of The Sun’s “Alive”. Own it.

Topher Jones & James Bowers “Save Me (Candyland Remix)” Released 5/21
Candyland returns with this circus-y drum & bass remix of “Save Me”. Innovative in its own right with schizo melodies and 8-bit interludes, Candyland proves they have some tricks up their sleeve, and these tricks are so for kids. Own it.

Autoerotique “Asphyxiation (Original Mix)” Released 5/28
Always unpredictable, Canadian duo Autoerotique drops this electro assault. Complete with an energetic and beepy build, grimey synths, and an in-your-face drop Asphyxiation will leave you gasping for air! Own it.

Diplo’s “Endless Summer” Playlist
Diplo effortlessly blends a plethora of music styles in this growing 98-song playlist. Featuring tracks by Daft Punk, Missy Elliott, Miguel, 2 Chainz, and many others (both unexpected and not) you will never run short of the perfect tunage for a summer BBQ or road trip! Own it.

This year’s act to watch is U.K.-based band Bastille, whose debut single “Pompeii” has already collected over 20 million views on YouTube. Now their four-track EP is available on iTunes, promising to deliver a musical concoction filled with experimentation and substance. Own it (
