Welcome to another music related thread by the much adored Covered in Bees!
This time I am in search of new techno/dance/electronica/trance/rave songs and artists. And any other genre the following songs fall into.
I have been hitting up Pandora a lot lately and most of the time it just gives me songs that are meh. I can listen to them, but nothing that really makes me wanna jam. Then there are the songs I give the thumbs down to in less than five seconds. And rarer still are the ones that I give the thumbs up to. Am I just being too damn picky?
Here is a sampling of techno-ish (or whatever the fuck genre they are) songs that make me wanna jam and that I am looking for more of:
All Around the World -ATC
Bacardi Mojito -Unknown
Born To Be Alive -Patrick Hernandez (For the sake of your sanity, I recommend not watching this video, just listen)
Boten Anna -Basshunter
Everybody’s Free -Aquagen
Get Away -MAXX
Halcyon & On & On -Orbital
Maria (I Like It Loud) -Scooter
Mr. Brightside (Jacques LuCont’s Thin White Duke Remix) -The Killers
Satisfaction -Benny Benassi (Couldn’t find a video of the six minute long, bass heavy version I like, the others suck)
The Whistle Song -DJ Alligator
Now, I have not by any means listened to these artist’s other works and yes that would be a good start, but I simply do not want to listen to every damn thing they’ve done to find a few more I like.
Nor am I looking for any one magical mish mash of all the different sounds represented above. They are to merely illustrate the range of stuff I am interested in.
For example, do all of Jacques LuCont’s remixes sound that way? Because his version of Mr. Brightside is easily in my top three favorite songs. Or do only a few of his songs sound that way or is it just that one? And other such related questions.
So, little help?
