The drop is all about that moment of anticipation, when everyone is getting ready to go crazy. the beat keep building and finally it drops and it turns up another level. We are in the process of collecting all of these tracks and putting them together into a dance mix that we will try to release next week. Regardless I thought it would be cool to line up all of the videos for you and help remind us all of 2010 and what kind of dirty-ness was dropped in that year on the dance floor. Enjoy.
Before “Babylon” dropped, the Italian producer Congorock was relatively unknown in electronic dance music circles, but this smash hit put his name into the set lists of dance music’s biggest stars. The hazy synth that drops at 1:13, when heard on the right system, can turn your bones to jelly.
Steve Angello, ‘Knas’
It was quite a year for Swedish House Mafia member Steve Angello. In addition to his work with SHM, his solo work was routinely found at the top of Beatports charts. This drop manages to be both grimy and incredibly polished, and was a DJ favorite at this year’s Electric Zoo festival.
Bart B More, ‘Brap!’
When I first heard this song, I thought to myself, “No way could this ever be played in a DJ set. It’s too loud, too brash, too obnoxious.” But on second thought, that’s what’s incredible about this drop. On “Brap!” Bart B More shows that he’s got guts, daring to take his electro-synth to a level unmatched by any other producer.
Rusko, ‘Hold On (Sub Focus Remix)’
Whats a list of drops without a little dubstep? I love the way vocalist Amber Coffman’s sweet voice carries through the build, giving way to a low-frequency growl at the drop.
Duck Sauce, Barbara Streisand
Album: Duck Sauce
Saw this at Coachella, melted my face. Everyone was going soo mad. Glad to see them live and had to add this one in there. Talk about a party. The video is great too, with lots of solid cameos
