Hey guys, I was just recently introduced to house/electro music and wanted to get some recommendations from you of stuff I should start listening to. Last weekend, I went to a concert on the California Central Coast called Re-Edit and I had one of the best times of my life. I really enjoy dancing and good beats and can't believe I haven't been to a rave before this.

It is hard for me to communicate exactly what genre or what style of music I was listening to but I will try to give a few youtube examples of what I enjoyed.

I really enjoy the intro sounds and how it breaks down into a chill melody.

I have also been enjoying some of my friends mixes which can be found here:

Let me know what you think and I would love to get some feedback and recommendations. Thanks in advance!

I feel bad that the first track I posted was that uppermost track because I didn't know that was dubstep. It really isn't like all of the other music I have listened to which is definitely more electro and house music. My second link had some mixes that a friend of mine did but I didn't get any feedback about them and I think they are much closer to what this thread is about. He is relatively new into DJing but I enjoyed his mixes. Would love to hear your thoughts.

I haven't seen him mentioned recently but what does everyone think of Mord Fustang? I have just recently been getting into some electro stuff, and a friend recommended him to me. I found that I really enjoy his style and the melody that he has in his songs. Lick the Rainbow and Electric Dream are probably my favorite tracks so far.

Here is his soundcloud for you to browse:

Hey guys, I posted a couple pages ago about this new artist, Madeon, but did not get any feedback. Was hoping to hear what you all think of him. The stuff he has put out is pretty impressive for someone so young.

I apologize if he has been discussed already, but I've been following the thread for a while and haven't seen anything about him.

Check out this Kaskade/Skrillex song off of the new Kaskade album. It is super disco and pretty loving awesome. It would be really awesome to see Skrillex do more stuff like this because you can't argue with the quality of his production even if you hate dubstep. Oh yah, this is not dubstep...at all.

I don't understand this sentiment. Yah they sampled heavily from that Raw Man track. But while I liked the Raw Man Track and definitely appreciate that he came up with the main beat of that song, the Kaskade/Skrillex version is just way more interesting and exciting to me. Personally, I found the original to be very repetitive and a little boring. To each his own I guess.

Also, what exactly is the problem with using older styles of house in new mixes/songs? Being able to blend different styles into a really cool mix is something I really enjoy about electronic music.

So after an insane weekend, I am finally getting around to posting about my Snowglobe experience.

I attended the Friday show with Bassnectar as the headliner. I arrived at the show just in time to catch the last couple songs by Dilated Peoples which was cool since I have been a fan for a long time. Then I headed straight to the second stage tent where Madeon was playing. He had a really fun set and everyone was super excited to see him live so the atmosphere was perfect. The kid has an insane amount of talent and will only get better as time goes by. The biggest criticism I have is that his set was too short and I wasn't close enough to the stage.

After Madeon, I stayed at the second stage for A-Trak which was awesome. I have not listened to him much but was really digging his style and appreciated the skill it takes to do what he does. I left that stage a little early to get a decent spot for Bassnectar.

Now, I had only listened to a few Bassnectar songs because I am not really into dubstep and didn't have high expectations. This guy put on a loving incredible show. Not only did he play a great set but he was super energetic and really connected with the crowd. The light show was also pretty amazing and he played a really long set which I appreciated. My only criticism is that I pretty much reached my limit of the amount of dub I can handle about 3 songs before he finished. Needless to say though, I was extremely impressed and had a great time.

As for the atmosphere at Snowglobe, it was pretty chill. The only thing I didn't care for was the fact that it was all ages and so there were a lot of 16 year old kids there which made me feel a little awkward. Oh also, as we were pushing our way out from near the front, my friend bumped into a chick who was bent over sucking some dude's dick. At least I have a story to tell the kids someday, right?

Seriously, I first listened to Madeon's new track on a 4 hour flight and it took all of my self-control to not start dancing in the aisle. He really has a talent for making a very complex mix without making it feel overwhelming. I want to hear this live so bad that I'm getting really sad about not going to Coachella.

He has a really unique sound. It definitely has a lot of the qualities of mainstream dubstep but has a pretty funky quality to it. The only artist I can think of that's truly similar is Pretty Lights (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8wCgxkQj_Qo).

Man this video makes me want to go rage. Also, if you are looking for some additional funk with a little hip hop, check out his album "Filling Up the City Skies" Disc 2. Hot Like Sauce is particularly good. You can download all of his music for free off of his website, which is pretty rad.

Madeon released a Mini-mix that was featured on Annie Mac's Radio. It has a lot of samples from his original mixes/remixes as well as a ton of new samples. He admitted on twitter that he did not have as much time as he wanted to polish it but I think it is still a great mix to listen to. In particular, I really like his tempo transitions. Hope you all enjoy!

I saw Madeon a few months ago, March or so. It was a good show, but his transitioning leaves something to be desired. It was really spotty at times. If you like Madeon's productions and his remixes, it might be worth the $30 to see him. I paid $25 and didn't feel ripped off, but sometimes his transitioning was incredibly jarring.

I caught a few clips of his Coachella show and it seems like he put a TON of work into his set. The transitions were fantastic and he mixed some great songs in between his remixes/originals. I would highly recommend seeing him as his live set has improved exponentially in the last few months. Plus, he plays Pop Culture live flawlessly.

A lot of people hate on Avicii (everyone in this thread) but VIP tickets at your school's homecoming sounds pretty awesome and you should have an awesome time. Especially for someone new to electronic music, this would be a great first concert.

Do you know more about the event? Dress code, venue size, # of people going? Seeing as it is a homecoming thingy, I am guessing the dress code is more formal than your typical rave or festival.

Madeon's new track is definitely not my favorite of is but I mean he said it was a track that was really close to him and meant a lot. I don't think he ever intended this to be a big club banger and if you are going in with that mindset, you probably will not like the track.

It's very uplifting and as always the production quality is fantastic.

In other words, I really recommend listening to this track I posted earlier. No one seemed to have any comments but I know those disco fans out here would love it. It reminds me of Mord Fustang if he did something super disco.

So I just purchased tickets to Snowglobe for NYE and I am super excited. The lineup this year looks incredible. I am definitely planning on seeing deadmau5 (have never seen him live), Chromeo, Big Gigantic, Madeon, Chris Lake, Zion I, and Boombox but I was hoping for some additional suggestions since I will be there all 3 days. Below is a link to the full lineup.

Also, for you electro fans, you should definitely check out Shreddie Mercury. If you enjoy Mord Fustang, you would most likely enjoy his tasty synths. My favorite tracks of his are Mount Cleverest, Heartbeat (Remix), and Night by Night (Remix) but everything is quality.

Just got back from Snowglobe Day 2. Madeon absolutely killed it. I saw him last year at the same concert and he is so much crisper on his transitions and flow. He had the entire crowd dancing so hard.

It was my first time seeing Deadmau5 and it was amazing, but I didn't feel the same energy as I did with Madeon. It was still an awesome experience.

Chris Lake was great but I was a little sad I didn't hear some of his more popular songs before I had to jet over to the main stage.

Having said that, it was absolutely worth every penny and I have never seen a light show like the Teeth. Incredible experience and I would highly recommend it despite the crowd.

I recently came upon Audien while listening to XM Radio and hearing an interview with him where he played a few of his tracks. I really dig his sound and he sounded like a very cool guy. The first track is on the trancier side of things and is probably my favorite, the second song is a little more poppy but I still love it.

Sometimes, there's a man, well, he's the man for his time and place. He fits right in there. And that's Jimmy T.

Just wanted to give some feedback after seeing Boys Noize on Thursday night. Firstly, the Mezzanine in San Francisco is an amazing venue. It is a smaller, more intimate place but still has plenty of room for dancing. The crowd was all 21+ which instantly made the vibe 100 times better than an all ages show. The opener was great and really set the mood for a great show, everyone was dancing as soon as they walked in.

As soon as Boys Noize got on stage, I knew I was in for a treat. The guy is an extremely talented DJ and I could really hear the skill with which he mixed and transitioned between tracks. His track selection was perfect, mostly his own stuff but he threw in some gems like Latch by Disclosure, which had everyone singing. The lights were really cool and not over the top at all. I think I left the dance floor for a total of 5 minutes for the entire show I was having so much fun and I would highly recommend seeing him if you get the chance.

The only bad thing? I had so much fun that I just really want to go to another show as soon as possible.
