2021 electronic dance music year is just around the corner. Artists like Armin van Buuren, deadmau5, Kaskade, Above & Beyond, JLS, Above & Beyond, Diplo and many others will be performing across the globe at various festivals and parties. It’s an exciting time to be a fan of electronic music and to witness some of the finest performances by up and coming talents. Here are some of my favorites for this year.
Above & Beyond feat. David Gutta is a massive hit for Armin van Buuren this year. This track is one of my favorites on the album and I can’t wait for its massive popularity. Just the instrumental alone is worth the price of admission, but what makes this track so special is the combination of David Gutta’s amazing vocals and Above & Beyond production skills.
Above & Beyond kick off the year in style with ‘Touch.’ This track is another huge hit for them this year and is perhaps one of their best songs to date. The production on this track is simply phenomenal, with Above & Beyond having their usual excellent work ethic in place on this track. ‘Touch’ also features the amazing vocals of Mark Hopp.
JLS and Armin van Buuren team up for the crazy ‘Higgs Boson Record.’ This collaboration was amazing to watch. JLS just came out with another fantastic song ‘On Edge.’ I can’t wait for his next single and here is hoping that he gets back with the exact same success as he had with ‘Show vs. Soul.’ One thing for sure is that JLS will be a head turner this year in the electronic music scene.
Above and Beyond ‘Dig Deep’ has me looking forward to Above and Beyond’s set at Download Festival in London this year. I have been watching this band since their formation and they have grown my love for dance music since Day One. ‘Dig Deep’ gives me that feeling again with a heavy techno edge and some heavy bassline undercurrents to match. If you like Above and Beyond then ‘Dig Deep’ is definitely a track for you.
Swedish House Mafia ‘okers’ is one of my favorites from the brand new album. It has that old school trap vibe that many producers are starting to fall in love with. If you have not yet listened to the album, you really should do so. It is an absolutely killer opener and there are not many producers out there doing what Swedish House Mafia is doing on a consistent basis.
Above and Beyond ‘Bang’ is the second release on the new year’s offerings. The guys come through with another very impressive album and this one definitely keeps it going. I am looking forward to more from these artists and beyond. Above and Beyond have made a name for themselves in the electronic realm already and with ‘Bang’ they are able to take another step forward into that realm. These guys are the perfect artists to bring to festivals and clubs.
In my opinion, there are not many better albums out right now than’Clockwork Angels’. It is a masterpiece and I highly recommend that everyone buy the album. Above and Beyond delivers another amazing album that showcases their talent and takes dance to a new level. These guys are the next generation of producers and should be very proud of what they are doing.
A lot of people are surprised when they hear about Above and Beyond. They are completely onto the new age sound that Above and Beyond are bringing to the electronic dance music community. They have impressed a lot of people with their originality and their ability to create new age sounds that are not only wonderful to listen to but are very melodic as well.
One of the biggest surprises to me came from the fact that the Swedish House Mafia is going to be releasing a brand new album this year. You may be shocked to learn that the band that performed at the 2021 U2 tour has decided to take their talents back to the fans. While they will still be using many of their signature sounds, they are adding elements from other genres to produce a sound all their own. This is a great idea considering the popularity that trance, reggae, and other styles of electronic music have enjoyed in recent years.
Above & Beyond Records is certainly keeping up with the times when it comes to releasing new age music. They are not afraid to diversify and offer something for a wide variety of audiences. There are many different elements of electronic music that an artist can include to create a unique sound, but nothing beats the freshness of new age music when it is produced by an established group like Above and Beyond. They will continue to add new elements to their already impressive catalog of music.
