[TWO FACED] Top 24 Indie/AltRock – Top 24 EDM/House (*including Spotify Playlists)


Instead of typing out every single detail about these songs like I usually do I decided that it would be easier for you and me to just simplify things a little….

I’ve put together two TOP 24 track lists of both Indie/AltRock/Chillwave and EDM/House.

They are set up in SoundCloud sets so it’s all in one music player, and some will have down arrows for downloading. AND…I made Spotify playlists for those of you that use Spotify (keep in mind not all of the songs are on Spotify yet).

Since it’s been a while I’m trying to give you what I think is great music by being super selective. I took each list from about 50 tracks (from the last 2 months) to 24 each, sooo in my opinion these are the best of the best.

After each list I picked ONE track that I think is the best, so don’t forget to check those out! And I have a little surprise for you at the very end…

FIRST UP: Indie/AltRock/Chillwave – TOP TRACKS

#1 Track: KO KO – Float

SPOTIFY PLAYLIST:

NEXT: EDM/House/Dance – TOP TRACKS

#1 Track: CAZZETTE – Beam Me Up (Kill Mode)

SPOTIFY PLAYLIST:

BONUS:
So this little nugget is from the last 15 minutes of Swedish House Mafia’s legendary set in Creamfields 2010. The entire set is amazing, but this mix gives me the ultimate goosebumps.

[UNIQUE COVERS] Indie Rock Covers of M83, Justice, Telepopmusik, Swedish House Mafia, MGMT

Image

So I’ve stumbled upon some great covers lately and then I realized that over my music discovery days I’ve actually accumulated a number of great covers. Not just ordinary covers though. Covers of singles from electronic artists like M83 and Swedish House Mafia. These are the types of artists most bands are not so keen to do covers for, because the instrumentals are sometimes too difficult to match. However, I think these covers really do their original owners some great justice!

So check em’ out and let me know what you think!

Midnight City – M83 (Cover by: Trails and Ways)

Midnight City – M83 (Cover by: The Knocks ft. Mandy Lee)

One – Swedish House Mafia (Cover by: Foals)

Breathe – Telepopmusik (Cover by: New Navy)

D.A.N.C.E. – Justice (Cover by: Hawa)

Kids – MGMT (Cover by: The Kooks)

Titanium – David Guetta ft. Sia (Cover by Collin McLoughlin)

Hope you enjoyed the tunes! Make sure to check out my next post!

[WALBRIDGE WEEKLY TUNES IS BACK!!] Run, Run, Run…to EDM

Image

For some reason the same music that we all love to jump and dance to also happens to be great music to run and workout to. It should actually be a pretty easy assumption considering the MASSIVE crescendos, extended build-ups, pounding bass lines, and sudden drops that are EDM (electronic dance music). It feels like the music is saying ‘Go.Go.Go. now SPRINT SPRINT SPRINT’ while keeping a consistent rhythm the whole time. There are some songs I listen to while running that literally fuel my energy and drive me to run at my peak.

Since it’s the summer season and people are running more outside I think it’s the perfect time to fill you in on some great tunes from my running playlist (warning: all electronic):

{MEMORY LANE} Songs That Mean Something

How many times have you listened to an old song on your iPod and it instantly brings a memory or image from the past back? You listen to Bohemian Rhapsody and it reminds you of rocking out with friends in a car during a road trip. Or you play Laidback Luke and it feels like your right at the front of the stage again. Everyone associates music with a memory or an image. Here are some of the songs that do this for me and what they mean to me:

Dog Days Are Over ft. Gilbere Forte (Yeasayer Remix)

Memory: Cruisin down the streets of South Tampa going out for the night, getting our hungover breakfast in the morning, enjoying life. “They say we better run, nah we better hide”

Time of Our Lives – Paul Van Dyk

Memory: Driving over the first bridge to Boca Grande in the middle of the day with the crystal blue water underneath us

Love Lockdown (LMFAO)

Memory: RAGING Sophomore year of college. Blasting this song in a blue cobalt with big bass! And of course…the LMFAO concert.

Memories – Kid Cudi (David Guetta FMIF Mix)

Memory: Best friends on the dancefloor

Dice – Finley Quaye

Memory: High school

Add Suv – Uffie Ft. Pharrel (Armand Van Helden Mix)

Memory: Gasparilla after party rage time!! Oh and that night ended well… haha

So here are just a few of my favorite songs, but the main thing about these songs is that they are what I call “Feel Good” songs. Even if I’m having the worst day ever, these songs will make feel great! I’m sure all of you have those kinds of songs too.

Music therapy can cure just about anything.

{HOUSE} Hardwell – Encoded

He’s only 23 years old and the new kid on block in the dance music industry. He’s getting support from Tiesto and Guetta and after producing a bootleg of Steve Angello‘s song “Show Me Love” and Laidback Luke‘s “Be” in 2010 that became one of the biggest dance music hits that year….he’s quickly rising to fame. If you’ve seen his name recently you’ve probably seen it as “ft. Hardwell” or “remixed by Hardwell”. Over the last year he has done a variety of remixes of songs by Armin Van Buuren, Bob Sinclair, Sharam, Fedde Le Grand, Tiesto, and Steve Angello. His style is similar to Swedish House trio and somewhat close to also rookie, Nicky Romero.

AND NOW HIS FIRST HIT SINGLE!! – Ultra Records
Hardwell – Encoded (Original Mix)

Here are some of the mixes he’s done in the past as well:
