In early August I spontaneously bought a ticket to Los Angeles and made my way to Hard Summer Music Festival. It ended up being one of my favorites — I was blown away by the production, organization, and every one of the artists. The following songs are more on the jump-up, big-room dance side of the spectrum, but they are all songs that were stuck in my head at one point or another this summer… Some are favorites from California, others were ones for full-blast subway headbanging. Check it out and enjoy!
♬ Kill The Noise – Roots (Brillz Remix) ↓
This song would not get out of my head after I heard Dillon Francis open his set with it at Camp Bisco. This remix’s slow start is something different, but leads into a heavy hitting bassline that makes you want to get up and dance.
★ Clockwork – BBBS (Original Mix) ↓
This song’s vocal sample and “big room” sound is infectious. Clockwork is taking the scene by storm, with two new singles released by Mad Decent this summer and a tour with Dillon Francis this fall.
♬ Birdy Nam Nam – Goin’ In (Skrillex Going Down Remix) ↓
The Birdy Nam Nam remixes started leaking at the beginning of the summer before the OWSLA-signed DJ group released their EP, but this one stands out as a favorite… Its slower tempo makes for a unique remix that fits in perfectly in live sets.
★ Zedd – Shave It (501 Remix) ↓
The guitar chord progression in this completely transforms the Zedd original. I’m warning you guys now, This OWSLA signed Finnish producer is about to make a huge splash in the dance music scene.
