Monday Rewind: 7 EDM Tracks You Need In Your Rotation

In case you missed these releases from the past week, VIBE's got you covered. File these seven EDM tracks into your rotation.

Dido “End of Night” (Cedric Gervais remix)
You already caught VIBE’s exclusive premiere of Vince Clarke’s remix of Dido’s “End of Night”, but now Cedric Gervais is stepping in the ring to turn Dido into a dance music phenom. Listen to his killer remix below, and get it on your playlist rotation. Own it.

Haim “Falling” (Leonard Friend Remix)
R&B/synthpop wunderkind Leonard Friend gives us the ultimate rewind remix with his 80’s infused revamp of Haim’s “Falling”. On top of the fresh new sound, the accompanying video is a must-see showcasing our favorite action stars in the most flexible (dance) positions. Own it.

Blaxx “Sex & Drugs”
Sex, drugs, and EDM make up the holy trinity for the modern day raver, and Italian producer Blaxx delivers that package in his recent mix, boasting a funkalicious beat with synth-laden lounge melodies. Own it.

Keys N Krates “Treat Me Right” (Thugli Remix)
If you were out enjoying the summer rays on Friday, then you might’ve missed this fresh, new remix Dim Mak dropped last Friday. The fast trending Keys N Krates track “Treat Me Right” gets a rough n’ dirty makeover from THUGLI, tricked up with a higher BPM rate and bass claps.

Kennedy Jones “Came To Party”
Coming out your speakers is the latest trap attack from Mad Decent in the form of DJ Kennedy Jones. His new bass heavy single “Came To Party” is so manic, it even sports its own genre dubbed ‘rodeo donk trap’ so be sure to strap in for this bumpy ride.

Slam Skillet “Rachis (Mixtape)”
Better than a track, we've got a mixtape this week. After premiering his new EP Rachis, Slam Skillet serves up a DJZ.com mixtape that explores the vast range of musical influences found in the EP, proving that trap is still the reigning genre in the EDM realm.

Dizzee Rascal “Goin’ Crazy” feat. Robbie Williams
If you thought Macklemore rocked vintage swag in “Thrift Shop”, then check out what they have going on across the pond with British rapper Dizzee Rascal and his new video “Goin’ Crazy”. These guys not only look incredible in your grandpa’s clothes, but they rock a supped up scooter on top of it. The video is too good to pass up on this one. Own it.

Watch Taraji P. Henson Bring The Party To The 2020 American Music Awards

What can't Taraji P. Henson do? The actress, philanthropist, and new podcast series host kicked off the American Music Awards 2020 with an energetic opening number many of us didn't know we needed. Live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, Henson hit the stage with The Wiz's "A Brand New Day" and danced through other classics like Prince's "Let's Go Crazy," Jay-Z's "Dirt Off Your Shoulder, and Megan Thee Stallion's "Savage."

By the end of Cardi B's "W.A.P.," Henson's outfit changes a gold bodysuit and a slew of masked dancers by her side, let's just say Ms. Henson did that as this year's host of the annual music award show. After completing her performance before America (and a small socially distanced audience), she got powdered up and got right into it. Alright, Taraji!

Sizzla Sings From The Heart In His "Without You" Music Video

"Righteousness will always get a fight," Sizzla Kalonji once told me, "and that is only to make you stronger." That conversation took place in 1997, he year Sizzla electrified lovers of reggae and dancehall music with two landmark albums, Praise Ye Jah and Black Woman & Child. Sizzla has gone on to become one of the most prolific artists of his generation, releasing his most recent album, Million Times in September—a collection of 12 sweet love songs, touching on the sounds that made songs like "Just One of Those Days" and "Give Me A Try" so legendary.

"Beautiful people want to listen to the beautiful reggae music," Sizzla told me. "And you know reggae bashes against corruption. It’s not just a music to sing spirituality only and to make you feel good and sing love songs, conscious songs. And it’s good for social commentary, a very good music to be used for social commentary. And any little thing happen to the poor people, we’re quick to express ourselves on dancehall riddims and on the one-drop roots rock reggae riddim. And what we’re explaining and expressing is the total truth. It’s a music that can be used for expressing our innermost feelings and thoughts."

Today, VIBE and Boomshots proudly premiere the new music video from the album "Without You." Big Up Kalonji every time.

Million Times is out now on all music streaming platforms.
