“The turntables might wobble but they don’t fall down”- Run DMC’s “Peter Piper”
As Run DMC ignited a revolution in music by breaking barriers and bringing hip-hop to the front lines, Jam Master Jay, who originally joined Joseph “Run” Simmons and Darryl “D.M.C.” McDaniels because he just wanted to be a part of the band, pioneered the art, and established the legitimacy, of the DJ as a true musician in mainstream music culture.
Afrojack just released his newest Dirty Dutch hit today. The track starts out with more of a melodic sound and grows right into an insane drop that has crowds all over the country going crazy. Afrojack never seems to fail and is in no hurry to drop from the top of the DJ scene.
This remix of “Don’t Blame the Party” by Firebeatz is on fire!!! The original track, by the Bingo Players is tame in comparison to the much more electro heavy sounding remix.
I saw Borgore last year at EDC, and he is without a doubt one of the heaviest dubstep performers I have seen. And while “Decisions,” if definitely on the dubstep side of electro, is relatively dance-y in comparison to other tracks he has made.
Afrojack and Shermanology hit EDM gold with their hit, “Can’t Stop Me.” It is impossible to not sing along at the top of your lungs and it is so catchy even the most dance-averse people get up and do the damn thing.
