[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.

[HAPPY ‘MERICA DAY!] July.4th.#NEWNOISE.OVERLOAD: Dada Life, Arty, Major Lazer, Wale, Dirty South, Bingo Players, Bloody Beetroots, The xx, and MORE!


So what if the 4th is on a Wednesday this year! Doesn’t give you the right to deny our great country a day of drinking and celebration! You’ve got the beer, the American flag button down, the jorts, the fireworks, and the friends. Now let’s make your 4th of July week complete with some NEW TUNES! Today I bring you some classics with a new twist and some brand spankin new stuff, so listen up and GOD BLESS AMERICA!

The first set of wavelengths I bring you is the classic Kanye West record, American Boy ft. Estelle, re-booted by Kill the Noise. The second is a re-boot from LAZRtag. Not a bad way to start:

The next ones are from a guy named Kastra out of New Jersey. He’s doing some original mixes, mash-ups, and re-boots. The first is one of my favorites, One Illmerica, taking SHM’s ‘One’ and Wolfgang Gartner’s ‘Illmerica’ together. They work perfect together. Second is an original mix called ‘American Sex’….thought that was fitting for this 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):

Roll the Dice – Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman

Here We Go – Hard Rock Sofa & Swanky Tunes

The Edge – Hard Rock Sofa & Swanky Tunes

These Russian guys are KILLING it lately!^^

Rage – Ralvero

The Veldt (Tommy Trash Mix) – DeadMau5

H8RS – Steve Angello vs. AN21 & Max Vangeli

The Wave (Thomas Gold Mix) – Miike Snow

Watch for this guy to take off later this year! ^^

1234 – Laidback Luke, Chuckie, Martin Solveig

Synergy – Michael Brun & Special Features

Metropolis – Nicky Romero & David Guetta

Walking Alone (Arty Remix) – Dirty South & Those Usual Suspects

Ladi Dadi (Tommy Trash Remix) – Steve Aoki ft. Wynter Gordon

EXCLUSIVE HARDWELL RELEASE:
Chasing the Sun (Hardwell Remix) – The Wanted

And now to finish off with some re-works from the infamous Swedish House Mafia sets. I always save the best for last:

2Night Together Hertz – Deniz Koyu vs. Axwell vs. Eric Prydz

I Love Bullet Promises – Michael Woods vs. Cassius vs. Nero

And now the mix you ALL should have! This one’s FIRE!!!:

Aerodynamic Quasar is Coming Home – Dirty South vs. Daft Punk vs. Hard Rock Sofa
