Swedish DJ Avicii became a dance superstar with his club hit "Levels." Now he takes the next step to become an international mainstream pop star. "Wake Me Up" generated controversy among electronic dance music fans by blurring the lines between country music and dance music. However, that just makes it a perfect song for party soundtracks appealing to the widest possible audience.
Chicago based dance group broke into the pop mainstream with their hit single "Alive." Now they are showing what they really can do when they spread their wings for electronic dance music fans. "Live For the Night" is an epic dance track. The language here is rougher than on "Alive," but this song proves Krewella are an act to watch.
Robin Thicke dips into a bit harder edged party music on "Give It 2 U," his follow up to the massive hit single "Blurred Lines." Dr. Luke takes the primary production duties, and red hot rapper Kendrick Lamar is brought in as featured artist. The accompanying music video goes completely over the top and includes an additional guest, rapper 2 Chainz.
Neo soul group Fitz and the Tantrums dig deep into the 80s inspired music favored by Neon Trees. The result is a perfectly fun singalong party song. "Out Of My League" has topped the alternative songs chart and is starting to interest mainstream pop radio programmers. It floats along above a great danceable beat.
Britney Spears is back with a banging club track. This new song is guaranteed to get your party on its feet. "Work B**ch!" is harder edged house music than usually makes its way into the pop mainstream, but this is Britney Spears. That faux British accent ultimately sells the song and puts it over the top.
"Talk Dirty" has not yet been widely promoted in the US, but it instantly topped the UK pop singles chart upon release. This is arguably the most fun single Jason Derulo has released yet. It is both sexy and fun anchored by appropriately horny sounding saxophones and horns. Many pop fans will remember "Talk Dirty's" producer Ricky Reed who records as Wallpaper.
Martin Garrix is a Dutch DJ who is only 17. His star has risen very quickly internationally. "Animals" first appeared in June this year and has gone to the top 10 on pop singles charts in at least 10 different countries. Martin Garrix records for Dutch dance label Spinnin' Records.
French dance music DJ and producer Cedric Gervais blasted into the mainstream pop top 10 in the US this summer with his hitmaking remix of Lana Del Rey's "Summertime Sadness." Now he applies his crowd pleasing remix talents to the 1980s Howard Jones classic "Things Can Only Get Better." The result is a gloriously upbeat mix that will put a smile on a lot of faces.
Redfoo, one half of party kings LMFAO, is heading out on his own. He still has party music on his mind, and the new single "Let's Get Ridiculous" will send the party through the roof. This song debuted at #1 in Australia after Redfoo performed it live on The X Factor Australia.
