It's no doubt that electronic music has caught the attention of the masses. Since the recent explosion of the genre in 2011, it seems that just about everyone has embraced it. Whether its 'deep house' to 'tropical trap rap' to 'moombahton' the genres continue to expand with a now more than ever diverse roster of seriously mind bending choices. We rounded up a mix of twelve songs that are worthy of so much play time it's ri-dic-u-lous.

Inside Electric Daisy Las Vegas: The Talent, The Production, The Party

Ten miles of darkness and 2000 cars separated us from the festival we had only dreamt about. As we stared forward, excited and anxious, there was a faint flicker towards the sky and then the familiar explosion of fireworks in the distance. A roar ripped through the desert from the cars around us. Indian chiefs and their topless girlfriends yelled and cheered out their windows, as packs of neon spattered fur boots ran by on foot. This was the scene I had heard so much about. The one that would save dance music events

Lollapalooza: Sunday Recap

The Sunday Snapshot:

The festival set-up, sound and acoustics, as well as operations were extremely professional. It's obvious they have done this before. I loved how they had two stages by each other with back-to-back shows. I parked it at the Budweiser/Playstation stages for most of the weekend due to the line up, but it was incredible to see 10,000 people stacked to see the headliners on the BMI stage. Kudos Lolla.

Sunday Musical Delights & Awards:

Chiddy Bang: Award for Band Best Listened on a CD. I was personally pumped to see Chiddy play. My friends produce their music videos and I have been rocking to their cool remixes/raps for a bit now. Think, Girl Talk meets Drake for their vibe. I was sadly disappointed in the live bit, but I still like them a lot. But the electronic Perry’s stage was a sick addition to the festival. We would be visiting again.
