If you’re not a fan of EDM and dance music, it can be an intimidating genre to get into. Thankfully, a great way to ease yourself into the music of these big-named DJs and producers is through their remixes. It’s not their original music (that’s step two), but it allows you to familiarize yourself with the artists’ styles while listening to the Top 40 hits you love.
Digital Dreams, the largest electronic music festival in Canada, returns this weekend at Toronto’s Ontario Place and it features some of dance music’s biggest stars such as Zedd, Armin Van Buurin, Steve Angello, Porter Robinson, Flux Pavilion and many more (full line-up here). We highly recommend going.
But again, if you’re not familiar with all these names, we’ve dug out some of their best remixes of popular chart-topping pop songs for you to get started on. If you dig the tracks below, we definitely think you should buy a ticket and dance with us this weekend!
