It’s official we have come upon the end of the road for the year of 2016. The journey was filled with beautiful beats and ballads but its time to turn over a new leaf, hello 2017! Starting next year the Your EDM Month In Music playlists will include the number of songs corresponding to how many days are in the month. For example this December we included 31 tracks for your personal listening pleasure!
Now let’s take a look back over the month of December. Master-producer deadmau5 released his 8th full-length studio album solely on his imprint label mau5trap which premiered #1 on the Billboard US Dance chart without the help of any outside major label companies.
DJ Snake released 9 different remixes to his hit single with Justin Bieber “Let Me Love You” on Interscope Records. The French producer handpicked: Tiësto, Marshmello, Don Diablo, and ZEDD just to name a few to work their magic on massively successful crossover track.
Denver, Colorado-based musician, Illenium released a complete remix album to his debut charting album “Ashes” which peaked at #6 on Billboard’s Top Dance/Electronic Albums. The remix pack includes names like: Just A Gent, Crystal Skies, K?d, Kill Paris, Dabin, and T-Mass & LZRD just to name a few.
LA-based duo Mako released their debut album an alternative pop-electronica 13-track packed album, Hourglass. Mako was admittedly uncertain about the fan-reception of their new album as they had ventured into totally new territory. Props to artists like Mako for treading upon new waters without any expectations.
The Grandfather of EDM, Tiësto, released his first ever AFTR:HRS compilation album. AFTR:HRS will be Tiësto’s brand new record label which will for the most part see the release of deep house records.
DJ Snake made personal history by finding 27 different producers to put their own unique spin on the French DJ’s track with Yellow Claw, “Ocho Cinco.” The remix pack includes remixes by a plethora of uniquely individual producers such as: Herobust, FIGHT CLVB, Victor Niglio, Wave Dash, Kandy, Riot Ten, Dombresky, Botnek, SIKDOPE, SAYMYNAME, Barely Alive, Kayzo, and Loopers just to name a few.
