This new artist is the latest to hit the EDM scene! I must say I am a huge fan of EDM, as cliche as that sounds. I love the upbeat party thump thump thumps. Robert DeLong puts his own spin on EDM by using very rare instruments such as Wii remotes and joysticks hooked up to computer machines to make unique electronic sounds! Also, have I not mentioned that he was nominated as one of MTV’s new artists to watch out for for 2013? “Global Concepts” makes me wanna have a crazy dance party filled with booze and smoke and live the peak of my youth. I remember the first time I heard it I was confused by the beginning but the beat catches up with you and gets stuck in your head so that your humming to the tune all day long. Robert DeLong has definitely made an “X marks the spot” (p.s. X is his trademark, he has a red one on his shirt all the time) on my go-to party/summer playlist for 2013!
This eclectic new duo reminds me of MGMT. Their indie pop mixed with electro makes me want to ride with the top down through Topanga Canyon! Blondfire has been out for a while now but I had never shared my love for their music till now! This song is upbeat and something that you can joyfully sing along to! The lyrics alone remind you of youth, careless, and wreckless behavior.The fringe and mountainous terrain that is present in this video perfectly captures the targeted sound of the song! Hopefully we will be seeing them at Coachella this spring!
I have been listening to Dada Life for years now! Ever since “Happy Violence”, I have been hooked on this Swedish duo! Dada Life is continuously rising to fame and getting more and more popular with their second hit “Kick Out the Epic Motherf***er”! After seeing them live at the Electric Daisy Carnival in Vegas this past June, I had grown to love them even more. Not only are their songs and remixes sick, they also have the best stage presence. The amount of energy along with their champagne popping and inflatable bananas makes their listeners feel compelled to love them! No lie, they can pump up a crowd with the beats of their songs.
Some more on their crazy intense outlooks on life, #therulesofdada:
Never bring your brain to a rave.
Doing the “airpiano” on stage while looking up in the air? Never. The “heart sign” with both your hands? F**K NO.
Tickle-punch-tickle-combo. Happy Violence!
Cheating is winning.
If you’re stuck, there’s only one solution: go harder.
If you only need one word to describe a song in the studio…then it’s done!
No bananas on the rider? Then we do our two hour deep/tech house set. Everything under 118 BPM.
PLUR = Potassium Lust Unity Rage
Arriving beautiful – leaving ugly.
Beautiful music = boring music. At least today.
Never BBQ before a gig.
If you don’t want to get wet, you don’t want to have fun.
Bass don’t cry.
Changing underwear at the club is cheating. Even for the members of Dada Life.
Never bring your brain into the club.
Art should be loud as fuck.
Always kick out the epic motherfucker. Always.
Everything is free.
If this doesn’t convince you just check out one of their songs and don’t forget to download their new album “The Rules of Dada” on iTunes http://bit.ly/SL2LSA!
So this has to be by far the best collab. yet! How sick are you of constantly hearing Titanium or Turn Me On on the radio? Finally a new song to take over the radiowaves! Calvin Harris has honestly done it again. I know some might think the Rihanna “We Found Love” song is so old and overplayed but honestly, I still enjoy it till this day! Calvin Harris has gone mainstream, however that might not be such a bad thing. I feel that the radiostations do need a little techno in their mix, put that at it GOOD TECHNO! I already love Florence Welch and feel she has the best voice so when this combines with the dance genius beats of Calvin Harris I literally can’t help but bop my head to this beat. The thump and bass that comes on in the chorus literally boosts my energy and I can already see myself dancing to this at the club in attempts to not spill my drink on my new dress whilst dancing my booty off! Enjoy fellow EDM or mainstream lovers 🙂
