Buying an electronic dance music cd is not as simple as it may sound. It requires some careful consideration and due diligence before you commit to shelling out any of your hard earned cash for any given product. So what should you look for when browsing the internet to find electronic dance music is that you like?
The first thing that you should do is decide on whether you want to buy an electronic dance music cd for yourself or to give away to others. Given the increasing number of online sellers, it’s very easy to locate and purchase one. However, you should consider spending some time reading reviews on different companies to see which have the best reputations for producing high quality electronic dance music CDs.
You should also bear in mind that there is the chance that you might come across a rip off version of the album from one of the companies that you’re looking at. In fact, rip offs are fairly common these days, despite the prevalence of well-known labels. So how do you protect yourself? The answer is simple – buy a professional manufacture’s edibles. Most of the major producers, such as Limbondoo, Voodoo Child, DotEXE, Armin Van Doorn, Carl Cox, Kaskade, Bong-Ra, etc, offer their own edibles, often at a reasonable cost.
If you’re looking for a new electronic dance music or to give as a present to a friend or loved one, you should steer clear of any track with a cover by a well known artist. Many famous DJs have released covers by lesser known artists and made them available as remixed tracks on their albums. However, if you do happen to see an artist with a cover by themselves on their album, always listen to it very carefully, especially if the original version was considered ground breaking. If you find it’s worth it, then go for it. Otherwise, pass on the track.
Some of the best DJ’s around today have recorded their own original material on their albums, often reworking parts that were left out of the original track. Some of the more popular examples include the likes of DJ Fresh with his “Choosing To Be” series or Justin Timberlake with his massive smash “Cry Me Out”. Two of the most requested DJ CD’s on the web are Avicii and JBJ who have each released a wideboys remix album.
A favorite of mine is “Wretch 32” by axiom Verge and “Reckless and Wild” by wretches 32. The first song on Verge’s album is called “Wretch 32” and it is also the first song that was used in the movie of the same name. This is by far my favorite album by axiom Verge and his partner wretch 32. They have done an amazing job of combining the whole studio audio with lyrical vocals from Alex Metric, who is of course from the band “Dope”.
One other great song that was on the original “Wrecking Ball” by OutKast is “Punk” which features Big Boi from OutKast in the lead role. This song was also produced by Kanye West. Outkast themselves has several songs that were produced by Kanye as well and are some of my favorites. On the other hand, “Punk” has been covered by artists such as the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Cheapie Plus and several others.
As for myself, I have very fond memories of the early days of electronic dance. People would come to parties like my friends and they would have these speakers blasting a lot of heavy techno music. And they would play a mix of rap, hip hop, reggae and techno. That is why I love the genre of electronic dance music so much. Sure it’s got its share of originals but it’s also a great mix of styles that can be mixed and arranged in countless ways to create new and interesting songs.
