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.
Tried to find a link for this song on YouTube, but that was a total fail and all I could find was some studio versions… Luckily there were some good folks over at HypeMachine that had the studio version up, so if you hop on over to this link and check out some fresh Skrillex — Right Here (Studio Version)
Skrillex just posted his DJ Playlist for August 2011 on iTunes that has some hard-hitting beats from artists like: Emalkay, Foreign Beggars, Caspa, and Excision (who was just in Seattle opening for Deadmau5). Skrillex has already dropped most of the songs on The Mothership – Episode 1, but it’s still worthwhile to check this list out if you were having trouble figure those songs out.
While I was creeping around on HypeMachine I found an awesome mashup of Adele – Set Fire to The Rain and Skrillex – Kill Everybody (Bare Noize Remix). This is definitely worth your time to check out, so enjoy!
