Delving into electronic music…

Daft Punk Alive 2007

Now, this article is really for the uninitiated.  If you’re already a big EDM fan, you may know a lot of what I’m going to say, and you may not agree with what I say either, which is entirely subjective.  Personally, I can take or leave electronic music, but every great while some songs are produced that are just amazing.   Now, there are a lot of big acts that aren’t gonna be mentioned here, so if you’re expecting to see David Guetta, Tiesto, Avicii or Deadmau5, then you may be disappointed, but if you want to hear more artists outside of the basic four being played everywhere these days, then you’re in luck.  So without wasting any more of your time, here are the tunes:

1. Daft Punk- Robot Rock 

The kings of house music, this French duo has been at it for over a decade and a half and continue to be one of the freshest sounds in the house scene.

2. RJD2- 1976

RJD2’s fresh blend of hip hop with instrumentals makes his sound unique and noticeable.  He’s even gone on to have a song used as the theme for AMC’s “Mad Men.”

3. Miami Horror- Summerfest ’86

Australian upstarts Miami Horror have a fresh sound similar to Chromeo or Cut Copy, but this song stands on it’s own.

4. Wolfgang Gartner- Illmerica

Grammy Award nominated Wolfgang Gartner is at the forefront of the American house music scene and this is just one reason why.

5. Cut Copy- Going Nowhere

Another band hailing from Australia, Cut Copy has been playing around the world for the past decade and their second album “In Ghost Colours” was number 1 on the ARIA music charts.

That’s all for now, tune in next time when we’ll sample some Aphex Twin, Booka Shade, Calvin Harris, Chromeo and Younger Brother.
