If you’re anything like me, coming back to reality this week has been anything but easy, even if it’s only been four days long. Last week I had the pleasure of taking a trip down to Puerto Rico where the clubs play everything from Skrillex to Tommy Trash to Swedish House Mafia to some hardcore [and locally pleasing] Reggaeton (yeah, it still exists). Less than 24 hours after my return to the States I was on a bus to the EDM capital of the Northeast for a New Years Eve bonanza at Pacha NYC. DJ sets were performed by Sandro Silva, Laidback Luke, and Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano (the latter are my new favorite DJ duo – expect an artist spotlight on them very soon). Throughout the night I had heard rumors of Avicii showing up in the early morning, and only yesterday did I learn that him, Cazzette, and Arty showed up to play at 7am which is not long after I left.
2011 was an epic year for electronic dance music in America and it truly came to the forefront of popular music and underground music alike. In case you missed our year in review, start with our Editors’ Picks and work your way through the sub-genres to see what created a buzz in 2011.
Now, with 2012 just six days young, we bring you two new massive tracks from two of the guys who had their biggest years yet in 2011: Fedde le Grand (FLG) and Nicky Romero. FLG has been in the game forever, but you might know him most recently for his remix of Coldplay’s “Paradise”. As for Nicky Romero, the kid is due to be one of the biggest players of 2012 and you couldn’t go to any music festival in 2011 without hearing his awesome remix of Green Velvet’s “Flash”. Check out these two new tracks by the Dutchmen and make sure to keep an eye out for what they have in store throughout the year. To avoid any confusion, these songs are collaborations between the producers.
