Check out the newest remix of "Cool Kids" by Bass Physics

Surprises are my favorite. So when I say that Bass Physics played the most memorable set of Global Dance's Decadence HANDS DOWN ... I mean it's surprising only because I am not usually attracted to the glitchy qualities of their electro-soul sound. As for the glitch-hop bass heads out there, you may have been equally as surprised to see that the Denver based-duo's set (which opened day two of the NYE massive in Denver) was more commercial sounding than their most recent EP, Where Do We Turn.

That is what makes their most recent remix of Echosmith's "Cool Kids" stand out right now -- because

The Chainsmokers Just Dropped their Very First Original Track!

The Chainsmokers Just Dropped their Very First Original Track!

Listen up, progressive house heads, because The Chainsmokers have just released a new original track with some interesting insight into their creative process to go with it! The track, entitled "Let You Go," features the indie rock sounds of Brooklyn-based indie rock group Great Good Fine Ok -- whose lead singer, Jon, lays down some impressive falsetto vocals that co-producers, Drew and Alex, told Billboard just yesterday mesmerized them enough to reach out to the group back in 2013:

"Honestly, the whole sentiment of the song really captures the spirit of our love for strong indie vocals and

Adventure Club Remixes MS MR's

Adventure Club Remixes MS MR's "Hurricane" [FREE DOWNLOAD]

If you a close follower of Adventure Club like myself, then you've been watching, waiting, wanting (dare I say, "craving") for the Montreal-based duo to climb out of the wood works to give us something new. With the release of their newest remix yesterday, the Canadian dance music duo made up of Christian Srigley and Leighton James have done just that with their melodic dubstep take on MS MR's "Hurricane."

It seems fairly obvious to me that artists with more melodic leanings have been attracted to remixing the indie pop genre lately, and the entrancing vocals from MS MR's Lizzy Plapinger fits

Said The Sky - Run Away ft. Car [Free Download]

Said The Sky - Run Away ft. Car [Free Download]

Coming at you this week in melodic chillstep is from Trevor Christiansen, better known as Said The Sky, a talented newcomer who seems to be defying EDM genres. His most recent release, "Run Away," featuring the vocals of Denver local Carley Mueller, is one ambient gem that I have been listening to on repeat.

The thing I love about this particular Denver producer's tracks is his consistent unqiue ability to take you on a journey from an ambient start to a clean finish that still contains identifiable dub-step elements. After a smooth lead in teasing Car's vocals, the track elevates you to Clou

Axel Knox - Mogass (Original Mix)

Axel Know, from Dublin, Ireland, has been putting out massive house tracks left and right for a few years now, and the latest track from him has got to be my favorite as a whole. I absolutely love the "acid" style that has been recently reignited in house tracks today, and this is a perfect example of one that has the full package for an acid house track.

You can stream his latest track and his other past tracks over on Soundcloud, and you can grab this catchy acid house jam is available for purchase over at Beatport, check it out!

[WATCH] Couple Gets Engaged at Lights All Night

[WATCH] Couple Gets Engaged at Lights All Night

Ravers really do love the hardest. And this couple is living proof.

Many seasoned festival goers have witnessed the beautiful and spontaneous moment when two EDM lovers make the life-long commitment to, well, love the other as equally as their passion for music. A lucky few bystanders manage to witness and share this moment, and fewer even are able to capture stock footage of this personally monumental event. Not only was I able to witness this particular proposal at the 5th annual Lights All Night festival, held in Dallas, Texas on December 26th and 27th, I managed to track down these two ED

Here Comes Ecotek: Pre-Decadence Interview

Here Comes Ecotek: Pre-Decadence Interview

One of the coolest things about this whole Decadence shenanigan is the fact that, not only do we have some of the biggest names in electronic music gracing Denver for a new year celebration, some of them actually live here too. Ecotek, aka Kostas Kouremenos, just so happens to be one of those names. I asked him if he would sit down and chat with me and, holy potatoes, he agreed!
