Dancing Astronaut has been one of the biggest and best blogs in the edm scene this past year. Recently, EEKO from DA posted up one of his seasonal mixes called, ‘Grilled Cheese’. Probably one of the better all around mixes out there right now. It features tracks from Zedd, Hardwell, John Dahlback, Fedde Le Grand, and more. If you are looking for good party mix before you go out on the weekend, this is for you. A lot of hidden bangers as well! You can follow him on Twitter here.
Trouse is something that most (including myself) are still very unfamiliar with.Â Robert Palliser on the other hand, is a trouse master and can best describe what it truly entails. Check out how he defines the genre and his latest mix, In The Trouse!
“Trouse is a new genre that has spawned from combining elements of big-room house music with trance overtones. Producers and DJ’s like Tiesto, Sander van Doorn, Hardwell and Marcus Schossow have been able to cultivate the Trouse sound by seamlessly blending characteristics of both genres. Trouse is a product of the overwhelming mainstream appeal of house music coupled with many still wanting to remain loyal to trance, a genre that defined early EDM culture.
I attempt to sift through the best Trouse over the last month and showcase some of the artists that have recently shaped my sound. The mix begins with the techier side of Fedde Le Grand with his ‘Paradise’ remix, to Hardwell’s anthem ‘Cobra’, and eventually ends with Jacob van Hage’s progressive monster ‘Convoi’. Each month, my ‘In The Trouse’ mixes will include the tracks that are defining this relatively new genre, along with some deeper productions that are influencing my productions at the moment.”
The madness of Olle Corneer and Stefan Engblom combine to make what we all know as Dada Life. They are back in action with the another one of their monthly specials. They have created a distinct electro sound behind their bananas and champagne with a slew of big tracks under their belt like ‘Unleash The Fucking Dada,’ ‘Red Meat/White Noise,’ and their most recent release ‘Happy Violence.’ This mix is comprised of Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike’s throwback remix of the classic ‘REJ,’ Tommy Trash’s remix of ‘Alive’ and Zedd’s electro banger ‘Shave it.’ DO DADA!!!
