Five EDM Tracks We'll Be Raging to In 2013
By Cory Garcia
Like any other genre, EDM has its canon classics, songs that always get a dance floor moving. Benny Benassi's "Satisfaction," for example, turns 10 in 2013, and DJs still throw it on because people still love it a decade later. There was a lot to love in EDM in 2012, but it would be foolish to say in the heat of the moment which tracks are destined to become long term classics. So instead let's keep it simple: What songs from the previous 12 months will make the leap in to 2013?
"Midnight City (Eric Prydz Private Remix)"
Eric Prydz's danced-up version of M83's 2011 anthem was, aside from Bassnectar's remix of Ellie Goulding's "Lights," perhaps the most obvious remix put out in 2012. The song was already dancey, and Prydz just took it to its logical conclusion. You knew exactly what it would sound like before you hit "play," and when you did it was everything you wanted it to be. "Midnight City" is one of those songs it seems everyone loves, and this remix makes dropping it into a set easier than ever.
4. Nari & Milani
You may not want to hear some songs all the time but in certain contexts they're absolutely perfect. "Atom" is one of those songs, a bit underwhelming on your headphones but a beast on a good sound system. The greatness of this track is directly related to how loud it's being played. Whether you're in the middle of a sweaty mass of people or working out at home, crank the volume up, wait for "blast beat go!" to drop, and get moving.
