This is the continuation to a post I made a few days ago about young and talented DJs. What I like about these two youngins’ is how they successfully use instruments you don’t hear very often in the EDM world.

Bakermat is another 1991-er who hails from the Netherlands. Bakermat is my favorite artist of the moment — not only because he uses the saxophone ALL the time, but also because his music is consistently good (read: Sax is BACK). Which is why picking only a few songs to spotlight is sooooo difficult. Eeny-meeny-miny-moe:

♬ Bakermat – Brighter Days
★ Bakermat – Leven

Faul is a 22-year-old from Paris who sometimes tours with Bakermat. “Changes” featuring Wad Ad and “Happy Endings” are both so catchy and uplifting; it’s hard not to love the songs immediately.

★ Faul – Changes feat. Wad Ad
♬ Faul – Happy Endings

♬ Major Lazer – Jah No Partial (feat. Flux Pavilion) or $

Disregarding my past reservations for Major Lazer, I threw myself into this new one… and loved it! A feeling of part M.I.A., part Skrillex, part I-don’t-know-what, it feels dang good. This, and the recently-dropped Hot Chip reproduction of “Look At Where We Are” (a kinda painfully slow original) with another fave, Junior Blender, and I’m a new convert.

NB: Please welcome miz MCMC to the hard-syncing team!

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.
