BEST ELECTRO MUSIC - WEEK 25 2014
I'm going to EDC tomorrow and I literally don't care about anything else. Taking the time out to write these blurbs is one of the most challenging exercises of my life. Please don't NOT read them and make me feel like this was all a waste of time.
It's fucking raver Christmas eve.
DESTRUCTO - PARTY UP FEAT. YG
Last summer Destructo was hyping up Dark Disco and then Dark Disco blew up. This year Destructo is hyping up G-House, releasing an EP called West Coast, and putting DJ Mustard, Jesse Rose, Sharam Jey, Shiba San and Vanilla Ace on the Hard Summer lineup. The first single off this EP is "Party Up" featuring YG and it's been stuck in my head all week long. Destructo just brought G-House to the radio and y'all don't even know it yet.
THE TOXIC AVENGER - TO THE SUN FEAT. TULIP
The Toxic Avenger makes the cleanest electro disco. It's totally because he's French. Is that racist? Or reverse racist? Is reverse racism racist? Is French a race?
MOON BOOTS - WHATEVER YOU NERD
From Electro-Disco to Nu-Disco, what is this, the 70s? Who gives a shit, this is sooo good. I got Disco Fever. It's pretty severe. I'm probably gonna die from it. Don't mourn me. I went out the way I wanted to: dancing my fucking ass off.
FEED ME - ALARM CLOCK
New Feed Me is such a welcome sound. He's such a fantastic producer. His sounds are so big and clean and it makes me very excited that he's touring with the Teeth again this summer. Who wants to buy me a ticket or two so I can see it?
Very emotional lyrics over here from J.Gooch. Feed Me turning into the Electro Deadmau5 right in front of our eyes.
I AM LEGION - MAKE THOSE MOVE (TEDDY KILLERZ REMIX)
At EDC this weekend I will be partying with my friend Luke Olsen. This heavy drum&bass dubstep ish is right up his alley. I'ma play it for him and see what he thinks and report back.
JULIEN JABRE & MT EDEN FEAT. HAYLEY GENE - A LITTLE CLOSER (MALSTROM REMIX)
Some dark moody techno for a Monday morning. Beautiful vocals from Hayley Gene, with ominous undertones (and drums) from Maelstrom. This song seems pretty perfect to be blasting out of the speakers at Berghain, not like I'll ever be allowed inside of there.
ZHU - FADED (ODESZA REMIX)
You got your peanut butter on my chocolate.
You got your chocolate on my peanut butter.
good things come together and holy shit!
BANKS - DROWNING (LIDO REMIX)
Yo, I don't actually know what the fuck is true and what the fuck is a rumor, but I choose to believe that the new incarnation of Trippy Turtle kiling it out there is also known as Lido. This fantastic, chill as fuck, trapped out remix of Banks is amazing though and I love it. So whether Lido is Trippy Turtle or not doesn't matter, cause I love it.
THE CHAINSMOKERS - #SELFIE (EXTENDED CUT) (AUTOEROTIQUE REMIX)
Autoerotique absolutely CRUSHING it with this remix of #selfie. #jk.
ASTRONOMAR & KID KAMILLION - BOOM
Astronomar with the most inventive sounds in the game, making some straight up festival trap. Awesome vocal samples. Just wanna see the homie Astronomar get as big as he deserves to be. :)
Thanks for reading my dumb shit. I promise I'll have the most fun at EDC this week and tell you all about it at some point next week.
About Kurt Kroeber
From deep within the murky depths of the Los Angeles River emerged a creature: 50% raver, 50% comedian, 10% Robotcop. Kurt Kroeber doesn’t own a dog, operates Soundbleed (the world’s only dance party comedy talk show rave), and is down to party with you. Come up some time and say “Hey dude!” But definitely make sure to casually drop the secret Illuminati password.
