Faithless

Halloween has come and gone, but that doesn’t mean we do away with the creepy goods.  After much reminiscing about the genres that defined the beginning of EDM, we felt that a genre (though often overlooked) that needs more recognition is HYPNO.  For those of you that haven’t followed hypno before, this song remixed by Armin Van Buuren adequately sums up what we’re getting at.

If you still don’t understand, take a look at some of Benny Benassi‘s olllllddd tracks.  Then you’ll see.  Dark, twisted, creepy tracks should never be underestimated. Our fingers are crossed that hypno creeps back into today’s EDM productions.

Even Deadmau5 has caught on…

Without You

There have been some mixed emotions in the edm world concerning David Guetta’s new track ‘Without You’ featuring Usher.  I, being a sucker for the sound of Usher’s voice quickly fell in love with this track and of course Armin’s remix is beautiful.  Now you be the judge!

The Original: 

Voice Of An Angel

Boasting a Grammy nomination for her song ‘Fantasy‘ (Morgan Page remix), this globally renowned singer/songwriter is just warming up.  Those who have listened to her work can testify that Nadia Ali truly does have the voice of an angel.

Recognized as one of EDM‘s leading ladies, her melodious, elegant vocals have been featured by the likes of Avicii, Alesso and even Armin van Buuren to begin the lengthy list. Though Nadia grew up loving an extensive variety of musical genres, her experiences across the world (born in Libya, moved to Pakistan and then New York in the 1980’s) helped foster her desire to maintain diversity in her collaborations.

‘Rapture’, the haunting track produced as a result of Nadia‘s work with iiO, thrust her to the top of the EDM scene. Her voice quickly because a sound that resonates within each song it is featured in.

And to think, this is only the beginning framework of Nadia’s career. We have a lot to look forward to with this songstress paving the way for females in the EDM industry.  Here is a little sampler of Nadia Ali.
