Big Beat Records sampler

Add Date: March 15 

Artist: Various Artists 

Album: Singles 

Label: Big Beat

Genre: Dance 

Comments: Three singles from various Big Beat Records artists, all firmly rooted in a dance-focused electronic tradition. The single from Freemasons featuring Wynter Gordon, "Believer", is straight-up club music--house/vocal trance style, with dramatic female vocals. Skrillex's single "Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites" is a track in the electro/fidget house tradition, with added dubstep flair (fun fact: Skrillex is Sonny Moore, who used to be a part of the post-hardcore group From First to Last). Zoe Badwi's "Freefallin'" is a nice, vocally-powered dance track with some house influences. Overall, these three songs are pretty awesome and a nice addition to our playlist--definitely check 'em out. Dance music fans, take note.
