So I am pretty sure that in some alternate universe I am a club kid. You know, those people who live in NYC and go to nightclubs with glow sticks and lose themselves in techno music. Yeah, you know. I just can’t help myself when I hear it, y’all. Electronic, progressive, ambient, techno, I love it all. Sometimes it scares me that I am so into this kind of music but most of the time I just go with it. I love turning on my deadmau5 Pandora station while I’m working at the computer – it’s hours of amazing, trance-like background tunes. Plus, it’s amazing workout music!
I’m lucky because right now there seems to be a spike in that genre and everyone is teaming up with DJ’s to make their songs more electronic. Here are a few that I can’t get enough of lately… if you’ve never given this type of music a try, here’s your chance!

Lana Del Rey – Summertime Sadness Remix
Miss. Lana is so alluring and so is the mix behind her sultry voice in this gem.
Calvin Harris Feat. Ellie Goulding – I Need Your Love
This guy is huge right now, and so is Ellie – double tap! I love this fun, upbeat song! And how cute are these two in this video??
Zedd Feat. Hayley Williams of Paramore – Stay The Night
Ok, if you haven’t heard me say it before, I freaking love Hayley Williams. Like, I’m obsessed with her. And now I’m obsessed with this song, too.
Skrillex – Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites
This one is kinda cray-cray. If you’ve seen Spring Breakers you will recognize it. I dig the insane and erratic chords.
deadmau5 – Raise Your Weapon
I love this guy. He’s really creative and loves cats. Slow things down with this one and lose yourself in the trance!
La Roux – In For The Kill Skrillex Remix
She is super cute and reminds me of a little fairy. This song is light and airy but then Skrillex really mixes things up in the middle.
Calvin Harris Feat. Florence Welch – Sweet Nothing
Ok, prepare to be blown away. Calvin is back but this time with the one and only Flo (minus the machine). She’s so amazing. This video is pretty amazing, too.
Swedish House Mafia Feat. John Martin – Don’t You Worry Child
This is a great upbeat song that I can’t help but sing along to at the top of my lungs! (While dancing around like a nerd, of course.)
