BEST EDM AND ELECTRO - WEEK 52 2013

12/24/13
Best of EDM & Electro

BitCandy.com is back to bring you one of the best Christmas presents you want the most: fresh new dance music. These picks go great with a cup of mulled wine, fruitcake, and ugly sweaters, so break it out at the next party you go to.

 

Martin Solveig & Laidback Luke - BLOW

A lot of people have been waiting patiently for this video which seems to spoof about every pop culture happening in EDM. You'll be hearing plenty of this track in the next 6 months. Can you count all the guest appearances?

 

Merk & Kremont vs Amersy - Charger (Available January 6)

Prog done right! We always like to point out when this happens - it seems so rare these days. Great build up with a calm middle section.

 

Dj Snake & Lil Jon - Turn Down For What

Wait - you're telling us Lil Jon is still living? Jesus how great!! This is the happiest news we've heard in months. The crunk king has teamed up with DJ Snake, who is also a cowriter on Lady Gaga's "Applause" ... for better or worse.

 

Handbraekes - The Qat

Handbraeks is the wonderfully dissonant experiment of Boys Noize & Mr. Oizo which basically no one likes. Their loss - we love the quirky mix of Oizo's avant-garde dance mixed with the harsh German sound of Boys Noize.

 

Xmas Transmission 2013

Digitalism was nice enough to give us two gifts this remix xmas. First is "MØ" which has a bright pop energy that's balanced by Digitalism's classic electro bass. The second track "Dudalism" features Steve Duda and has been remixed by Grum. The analog synthersizer really stands out in the mix and adds new life to an already great tune.

 

Snails & Botnek - KRMT (Original Mix) [Thissongissick.com Premiere] [Free Download]

 

Glenn Dale - Love Me (Extend Mix)

Ultra smooth techhouse with a nudisco feel. It's a long groove with a few different feels, so really tuck into this one. Grab the download now!

 

Disco Fries & Damien Anthony - Get Up

 

Théria - Snap

Simple and relatively slow, "Snap"  opens with an indie dance feel before dropping a big bass with some dub inspired percussion.

 

Temporal - Embrace

This 18 year old Canadian is a new find for us. His soundcloud has a few choice numbers available for download and while "Embrace" is the most exciting of his selection, we're excited to see what Temporal brings in the future.

 

The Magician - When The Night Is Over (Grades Remix)
