See how much your favorite DJs have changed over the past 5 years

This post was originally published on this site

While seeing someone like Hardwell or Afrojack at the Ultra main stage today may be a similar experience to what it was in 2012, it cannot be denied that dance music has seen considerable change over the past five years or so. One of the biggest signs has been the willingness of artists to expand their sounds and collaborative choices. For example, Afrojack, who was dropping the crunchiest beats in the game a few years ago, is now working with artists like Ty Dolla $ign and Luis Fonsi to breed mainstream, Top 40 tracks. There’s also the case of The Chainsmokers, who went from remixing popular indie/alternative songs in 2013 to now being arguably the hottest duo in the world right now, topping the charts across all genres in working with Coldplay, Halsey, and others.

Dance music has proven it isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, and that it is capable of rapid evolution and reinvention. To prove how much the music has changed over the years, a Facebook page called Revealed Family posted two videos entitled “EDM – THEN vs. NOW.” The videos give a track by track outline of how different music by the top DJs in the game was 5 years ago versus how it is now. There’s a clear difference in sound and production style that should be noticed instantly. The videos include old and new tracks by Nicky Romero, Zedd, R3hab, Avicii, Skrillex, Alesso, Vicetone, Deorro, The Chainsmokers and more.

Alesso – Move Like That (Original Mix)

This post was originally published on this site

After a couple of strong years as one of the largest progressive house purveyors in the rising big room era, Alesso has received extensive recognition for his talents from a wide variety of DJs. Working alongside major producers like Calvin Harris and Sebastian Ingrosso, and remixing mega-hits from the likes of Avicii and Swedish House Mafia, he quickly gained popularity and rose to one of the largest names in the dance music industry.

Now straying away from the progressive-sound for he was once known, the Swedish producer dips his toes in a different musical direction, jumping onto the current bass house trend in his newest single, “Move Like That.” Punctured by strident vocals that lead into a typical throbbing bass-line, Alesso jumps into new territory as he accompanies this track with a short dubstep-tinged segment towards the end of the track.

Alesso’s “Move Like That” is available for free download.
