[Trap / R&B:] Beyoncé – End of Time (DJ Sliink & Big O Remix) // [Trap:] Krewella – Live For the Night (Aero Chord Remix)


This awesome trap remix is one of the better remixes I’ve heard of Beyoncé’s “End of Time” with bumping beats, elements of trap and Jersey house rhythms. It is also one of the few remixes that successfully incoporates Beyoncé’s insanely catchy and rhythmic ad-libbing at the very beginning of the remix (and the original), something I hoped other remixes would do a lot, it’s probably the best part of the song and having it repeat is a recipe for sonic eargasms.


Live for the Night (Aero Chord Remix) – Krewella

Krewella’s smash hit “Live For the Night” receives the remix treatment from electronic producer Aero Chord, who makes the jam into a trappy, bass-filled banger with a good amount of trance influence. You can check out another great remix from Aero Chord, though much more of a dubstep/dance vibe, in his remix of “Twerk” by the Diamond Pistols below:

[EDM Origins:] [Dance / Trance:] Stunt – Raindrops (DJ Demand Remix) // [Electronic / Hip-Hop] WZRD (Kid Cudi) – Ride 4 U (feat. Chip Tha Ripper & Far East Movement)


Hold my hand, let’s chase the sun,
we both know something’s begun
nothing feels that real without you
wanna learn so much about you…

This EDM Origins post is on the electronic, dance song “Raindrops” by Stunt, one of my personal favorites in my adolescent years. “Raindrops” channels the energetic dance music and rave scene rampant in Europe and the fledgling soon-to-be-movement in the United States. This came at a time where a few years prior and around the 2000s, it was not uncommon for American electronic producers and artists to release their music on European labels and markets due to the fact the demand was just not there in America. My, how far we’ve come. Take a listen to this pumped up club track and reminisce of those golden years with me!


Next up, from the moon man, Kid Cudi, himself is electro-inspired masterpiece, “Ride 4 U”. With back-up support from the top-notch “real hip-hop” rapper Chip Tha Ripper and the eclectic California-based electronic/rap band, Far East Movement. The beat is simply crack, produced by none other than one of Cudi’s right hand producers, Dot Da Genius. Check the song out, drift off, or simply ride out to “Ride 4 U”…
