Best EDM & Electro House - Week 3 2013

1/15/13
Best of EDM & Electro

Welcome back to BitCandy.com’s best of electro page.  Uncle Flex and Glitch are back again, wherer you like it not, here to bring you the best EDM that we could find in the past week.  It’s not an easy job, we had to visit the dark smelly alleys of BeatPort, SoundCloud and a raves in between, but we know what it means to all of you out there.   Here's our weekly picks:

 

 

Dada Life - So Young So High (Dillon Francis Remix) PREVIEW

 
 

 

Trap music was easily one of the biggest EDM fads of 2012. Seemingly verything from August to the new year was running the trap. Now, the fad of white people trying to two step just got even more ridiculous. I saw this one labeled as “nütrap.” It all the markings of “classical” trap but with some weird new takes. I’m not yet convinced if this nütrap will be good, but I sure am interested. 
 
 

 

Kid Massive & Alex Sayz feat. Miella - Strong (Dannic Remix) 

 
 

 

Here’s a great progressive house mix of “Strong” by Dannic. It has a few interesting elements, like it’s shuffled snares and a great pad progression in the verse, making it seem like it’s going to have a much different feel than how it turns out. The chorus is much harder than the rest of the song would have led you to believe.
 
 

 

Datsik & Excision - Vindicate

 

 

More bangers from Datsik & Excision. Just like the rest of their works this is full of dark tones.
 

 

Zedd - Clarity feat Foxes (The Sonixx Remix)

 

 

Zedd’s “Clarity” has been seeing a lot of play lately. It’s been performed on late night TV and has just released it’s official video. The video features some cliche slow motion cinematic tracking shots that then cut to a chaotic visualizer. There’s even a guy with a funky haircut walking through sand dunes, and frankly, dudes walking through sand dunes belongs exclusively in “Better off Alone.” So here, have a remix instead. 
 

 

Nervo & Hook N Sling - Reason (Ziggy Remix)

 

 

Here’s a dubstep remix of the very popular “Reason,” orignally by the bombshell Australian twins Nervo and their compatriot Hook N Sling. 
 

 

Birdy Nam Nam - Defiant Order (Phuture Doom Remix)   

 

 

Great remix of Birdy Nam Nam. This one has some drumstep elements while not crossing over entirely. 
 
 

 

MDK13 - Serpentine

 

 

Reminds me of early The Crystal Method...which we need more of!  BTW word is there is a new Crystal Method album coming in a few months.  In fact ... I've heard some pieces and it's great!  If you were born after 1985 you might be like who the F is Crystal Method.  Trust me...get the Vegas album.
 

 

Materikaa - No! No! No! (Hassan Lur Remix)

 
 
 
 

 

Fedde Le Grand - Raw (Original Mix)

 
 

 

Here’s some raw electro house to get ya going. It’s simple and to the point. 
 
 

 

Tommie Sunshine & Disco Fries ft. Kid Sister - Cool Without You [Live SiriusXM Preview @ JACKED NYE]

 
 
 

 

Great new collaboration from a few great artists. This one debuted on New Years Eve and now we’re eagerly awaiting the full track.  For those of you who don’t know, Kid Sister’s brother is J2K of Flosstradamus. 
 
 

 

F3tto - Tha King [Promoted]

 

A glitched up electro banger with a nice vocoder vocal.  Check out the rest here: https://soundcloud.com/f3tto
