The majority of my readers are people who like EDM, but do not seek it out for themselves. So this week, I decided to create a random playlist, featuring all Top 40 songs remixed into House bangers. If you thought you were on the fence about EDM, take a listen to these popular songs in their new and improved version (in my opinion). If you still don’t like them, then I am afraid EDM is lost on you and you can go listen to Country.

I provided several different remixers to showcase the range of EDM. Most of these remixes are considered Dutch House, a subgenre of Electro House and sometime Progressive House. Actually, only four songs are not Dutch House. Maybe if you have been reading my blog long enough you can figure it out.

“Coming Home (Dirty South Club Mix),” “Party Rock Anthem (Alesso Remix),” and “Set Fire To The Rain (Thomas Gold Remix)” all made my Top 50 of 2011, and “Sweet Disposition (Axwell & Dirthy South Remix)” would have made my Top 10 of 2010 had I made a list.

Hopefully these songs are a gateway to EDM for some of you. Enjoy!
