For those that haven’t quite figured it out yet, this and it’s companion set Pride 2013 v1 are comprised of some of the best in electronic dance so far this year coupled with brand-spanking numbers hand-picked by your humble host as surefire winners this summer season.
I closed it out with two of my current favorite songs, which by all accounts are laid-back and breezy. I had posted the video for Chris Malinchak’s So Good To Me several weeks ago and decided to drop in the slightly punchier Steve Smart & Westfunk Mix and then tapped it off with Easy by Mat Zo & Porter Robinson. If the latter name sounds familiar, it should. Porter’s Language was my pick for one of the best songs from 2012. Here, he and Mat deliver a carefree song that will win over even the staunchest anti-EDM detractor.
They do need to give credit where it’s due; the song relies very heavily on a familiar synth rip that if you’re a song history buff like me strikes a very similar chord to Steve Winwood’s While You See a Chance (one of my all-time favorite tracks), which is probably why I was so drawn to it. However, I don’t judge; a good riff is a good riff when used to create your own song.
Next up, I’ll be serving up a set geared towards my circuit boyz and that one is a MONSTER! I previously posted on Facebook that I wanted to break something after my first take and after previewing the end result, I was dead-on (though managed to restrain myself breaking anything LOL).
At the end of the week, I’ve got a delightful throwback to Hi NRG classics and anthems for the true diehard Pride enthusiast amongst us.
That’s it for now and until my next post …ENJOY!
