It’s proven true, since as early as the 60’s, that there’s something about a pounding kickdrum, hovering around 128 bpm, that can unify thousands of people in a common groove. It’s no wonder House music is still around. It’s no wonder ELECTRO is the preferred sound of choice at outdoor summertime events, big and small. Below are a few suggestions for drops, if you find yourself at the helm of music selection during such an event.
ASTRONOMAR – WANNA DO WHAT
This kid is a rule breaker. Cheeky bastard! Is this DUTCH HOUSE, or GLOBAL BASS, or something entirely different? Expect to be equally confused and delighted whenever spending time with music by ASTRONOMAR.

FIREBEATZ & SCHELLA – DEAR NEW YORK
One of the biggest tunes of the year holds extra punch when dropped at a beach jam, or rooftop party, in NYC. You don’t need to be in The Big Apple to enjoy this one, but it helps. Ha![soundcloud url=”http://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/61098293″ iframe=”true” /]

LOUISIANA JONES – 2-CYCLE
This guy is blowing up fast. After hearing him move from 4/4 to Triplet, to TRAP, I can see exactly why. Party weapon here!

SIK DUO – BOOM (MAIN MIX)
These NYC party mover veterans know all too well the power of the mighty Electro kick. But how could they have predicted the turbo enhancing of that power when cleverly combined with LL COOL J SAMPLES? “BOOM” is right![soundcloud url=”http://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/87100961″ iframe=”true” /]
THE FLASHBACK PROJECT – RELEASE ME NOW (DJ TWISTA’S RIOT ACT REMIX)
Throwback business, transformed into Electro filth, without sacrificing any Rave vibes. This is a feel good banger, from one of the UK’s NEO RAVE princes.[soundcloud url=”http://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/15805839″ iframe=”true” /]
