That Lights remix is so damned good. It's kinda replaced the original as the 'real' version for me.

Deadmau5 and noisia, two great flavours together. Can't wait to see this live tonight.

https://youtu.be/FzPITNQHOic


So where I live we have one of Europe's big super clubs, and last year Flume came to town. Now that more poppy stuff usually isn't my bag, but I have to say I was surprised and impressed.

I've always been a fan of strong melody in songs, which is why i can stand to listen to someone like avicii even if he is pretty crap in every other aspect except melody writing (seriously, I saw him on a night he was headlining and someone had turned the bass up on his output because that kick was mashing and distorting against a limiter). Madeon and Flume are two good producers and I like them for easy listening, though I have little love for porter robinson.

Have a great time man! It's interesting you like Madeon but not Porter considering they have released a song together and just finished a massive tour together. I got to see them in San Francisco and it was one of the best shows I have ever been to.

I like Madeons glitchy complextro. Porter blew up because of language and I just find that song rather obnoxious for some reason.

I like PR & Madeon a lot, and Shelter was a great song & tour (those visuals!) but honestly I don't see why people think they're so equivalent. Madeon makes cut up disco and PR seems to be spend half the time trying to get indie pop out of a Sega genesis and the other half trying to distance himself from "Say My Name" era complextro. There's definitely similarities, but for my money Madeon is much more talented and interesting. I like PR a lot, don't get me wrong, but Worlds' lyrics and melodies often hit 'cloying' for me.

Complextro is possibly the only worse descriptor than Moombahcore.

I think with a bit of a cognitive stretch you can sorta infer what Complextro may sound like before hearing it. Moombahcore is inscrutable unless you know what Moombaton is, and I'm not sure anyone does except Dave Nada.

yeah it should just be called bouncy electro or something. Moombah is not nearly big enough to have derivatives.

The new ODESZA album dropped last night (their first in 3 years). It's really not grabbing me like In Return did I still play In Return all the way through at least once a month. It's just amazing song after amazing song after amazing song. This new one, though...it's not like it's terrible or anything, but the ratio of standout songs to meh ones compared to In Return is spotty at best.

For example, one of the best songs on here is Late Night, which they already released as a single months ago.

Sorry to hear you're not enjoying it . I'm on my third listen of it and it's been fantastic. The section of the Intro to Boy is really good imo. Then again, I really like Line of Sight (though it did have to grow on me) which some people say sounded too similar to The Chainsmokers sound.

I never really gave In Return a real listen to though, and I'll have to do that. I've also gone through and listened to some of the songs posted here I haven't heard before and it's been pretty spot on. Thanks guys!

I'm sure some of this material would be a ton of fun to witness live, it just doesn't really work as an engaging album for me, whereas In Return covers both bases.

I ended up listening to In Return, and I've surprisingly heard most of these songs. It's definitely a really well done album too. I feel like they managed to capture a similar sound/vibe with their new album.

Regardless, Odesza is really amazing and I need to experience their music live. I've been wanting to see their Red Rocks live show, especially since I've seen videos of their trap-ish song Bronko.


Some relatively new releases that I've enjoyed

Big Gigantic - Odssey Pt 1 (Krane Remix) - https://soundcloud.com/biggigantic/...t-1-krane-remix
Krane is an amazing producer and I love what he did with this, especially considering it's a short intro to Big G's album.

I only saw them live once, and really it was only like the last 15 minutes of their set at a festival because Id come from seeing Tycho and wasnt as into them then, but man, that 15 minutes was loving fantastic. It made me wish Id skipped Tycho to see their whole set instead, especially because Id already seen Tycho a few times before and they had technical difficulties at that festival and sounded kinda lovely anyway.

I saw ODESZA here in Seattle at Bumbershoot last weekend. Fun show, plenty of live percussion (the drum line is cool and good) and horns which added quite a bit. They were about a third of the way into the set, in the middle of Say My Name, and the main stage power went out. Everybody thought they just wanted us to sing the chorus, but eventually they just wandered off stage and we realized it wasn't part of the show. Power came back about 5 minutes later and they killed the rest of it thankfully. They brought out WYNNE, Naomi Wild and Leon Bridges for their respective songs which was great. Totally agree with the poster above that the run from Intro to Boy is rad, Boy might be my favorite track on the album.

Yo, if you are in or anywhere near Texas in December, you should really go to this:



Aside from my excitement over seeing NIN, Godspeed and acts from other genres, on this lineup there's also:
Justice
Pretty Lights
Rezz
Cashmere Cat
Shlomo
G Jones
& more

This is the festival I went to last year where I saw Aphex Twin, Squarepusher, Tycho, Odesza, Kaskade and more. Last year was unreal. It felt like the closest I've ever come to a religious experience. I'll remember that festival for the rest of my life, and this year looks memorable as gently caress too.

Super not EDM but Kimbra on that lineup is genuinely a fantastic performer. If you don't fall in love with her during the show then you're likely dead, she goes all in every single time.

Illenium's new album came out the other day and caught me totally off guard. I didn't know what to expect from it but I think it might be one of my favorite albums of the year. I've listened to the whole thing like 3 times since the first time I listened to it yesterday.

Also I'm still loving baffled by how this song (which came out months ago) isn't a top 40 megahit by now because it just seems so obvious that it should be. It's infectious.

I have a hard time believing that a deadmau5 "cube" show was boring AF, unless the music just isn't your thing. I have seen the cube twice and it is hands down one of the best shows I have ever seen. Are you talking about his DJ sets? Again, that is a completely different animal.

Late reply, but to answer your inquiry: the two live shows I saw were House of Blues Boston 2010 and Governors Ball 2015.

Both sets started off great but the energy just died down after the first half.

Compare Deadmau5 to say, Daft Punk, Justice, or Eric Prydz, and you'll see how two-dimensional his sets are.

That said, he's still better than Flume who is completely one-note AF.

I mean sure, deadmau5 is not quite on the same level as three of arguably the BEST live electronic acts in the the last 2 decades. But that is an incredibly high bar. Of those four (including mau5) I have only not seen Daft Punk. All of the shows were fun and worth every penny.

I saw Rezz tonight for the 2nd time this year (this was the first date of her Mass Manipulation tour) and somehow it was even better than the first time I saw her and the first time was incredible

She played pretty much everything I could want to hear from her: her entire new album, Plague, her remix of Killing in the Name Of, etc.

If she's coming near you on this tour, I'd highly recommend you'd go see her. She's the type of performer where you don't want to take your eye off her the entire time she's playing. She's so happy and chill but she plays the filthiest poo poo. I love it.

She's humble as gently caress, too. You can tell she really appreciates her fans and wants to make them happy, which I can't say of every artist.

Anyone heard of Audien? He just released a new EP a couple weeks back and now he's doing a tour. I saw him in Seattle this past weekend and the show was SO GOOD. Very emotional and upbeat. It was just all around awesome.

I managed to see Zedd's show as well and he puts on a really awesome show with all the visuals. It was definitely a great experience.

Here's some of my favorite songs from Audien! I guess most of it is pretty pop-y but they're super fun to dance to at a show and it's just all around good vibes. I'm so happy I was able to catch one of his shows.

He showed up on JJJ talking about how he has to keep coming up with "new sounds" as people copy what he does instantly. They played one of his example and it was like a phasey ride cymbal that was pitched up and down as it rang out, it just sounded so bad and weird.

Awesome to see a thread like this pop up. I abandoned the other thread for obvious reasons.

Anyways, I've seen people list a couple of Mau5trap artists like Rezz already but I wanted to add one that I discovered off of the last "We are Friends" release from them, named Tinlicker. Definitely some of my favourite progressive house out there right now and they seem pretty unknown for the most part. I would've never heard of them without that release. They have a ton of stuff between their channel, Zerothree and Mau5trap.
