Peppy's Top 15 Electro Songs of 2008


Asa Tyler's Top 15:

1. As Above, So Below (Justice Remix)
Oh Justice. First “We Are Your Friends”. Then Cross. Now this? When do you not hook it up? The answer is never. This song has something that none of the other songs on this list have: that fucking underwater effect, and the best ending to any electro song that I have ever heard. This reminds me of wrapping up an amazing night, driving fast down the highway at 1 AM, windows down, and a shit-eating grin on my face. Happiness lies everywhere in this world. All you have to do is find it.

2. Lights & Music (Boys Noize Remix)
I’ll never forget the first time I heard this on Starfox’s megamix. Oh it was too legit to stop listening to. This shit reminds me of a happy, upbeat electro party, a utopia with a side of bright lights and cute girls. Some dopeness that I have yet to find…
DOWNLOAD
3. Nobody Lost, Nobody Found - Cut Copy
The hidden track on “In Ghost Colours”. Just when you thought they hooked shit up, there’s more. This shit will drive you up the wall, and all I can think of when listening to this are trips riding into the city on 76 as the sun sets. Burn in the face of love…
DOWNLOAD
4. Fool For Love (SebastiAn Remix)
Epic. Possibly my favorite SebastiAn remix. The piano in the beginning gives off a sense of seriousness to the song. But no. The beat comes in, and SebastiAn goes the fuck to work with this shit, adding distortion, cutting up the vocal part, and putting in some sick effects that’ll keep you listening. All I can say is: This is epic.
DOWNLOAD
5. Voyager (Revolte Remix)
Revolte hooks shit up with this step-up-from-Daft-Punk track. They take it, add a vocal piece, put in a new beat, and essentially tear the original version a new one. And you thought the unedited version was good…
DOWNLOAD
6. Momy - SebastiAn
Rave shit. SebastiAn lets you in for a treat with this amazing beat. I swear he needs to start making more beats for the sake of not only electro fans, but also fucking hip-hop artists. These beats are so fucking amazing.
DOWNLOAD
7. American Boy (LAZR TAG Remix)
“Oh yeah that new Kanye West song with that chick is pretty cool”. Sure, but if you know what’s really fucking good, you’ll take a look at this mind-blowing, LAZRTAG remix that has been banged WAY more than once in my whip. Give it a try. You won’t stop listening.
DOWNLOAD
8. We Dance Together (SebastiAn Remix)
This shit can be found on Peppy’s “Intim4ate Culination5” make out mix that has only been shown to Starfox and Falco. This song is perfect for that build-up, I’m getting with a dope girl, electro style. This song also tends to have hints of a modern disco, which I am always fucking down with.
DOWNLOAD
9. Hearts On Fire (Knightlife Remix)
Starfox and Falco once agreed that “Saturdays” By Cut Copy was the quintessential, “driving to your girl’s house to get ass” electro song. Well if that is so, this is the quintessential, “driving back home from just getting ass” electro song. This is the one to bang after you got yours, friends. Trust me.
DOWNLOAD
10. I'm Not Gonna Teach Your Boyfriend How to Dance With You (Twelves Remix)
Some teenage days, longing for romance electro that reminds me of all the girls I’ve met who had dicks for boyfriends in my years as an adolescent. This Twelves remix will fuck you up, and make you listen again just to make sure you get the message that the Twelves are the most underrated electro group out there.
DOWNLOAD
11. Strangers In the Wind - Cut Copy
A nostalgic melody with a saddening keyboard, tacked on with a slue of ever lasting, broad lyrics that bring back memories of school winding down. The beat that kicks in makes the song a definite on the list.
DOWNLOAD
12. Cheap and Cheerful (SebastiAn Remix)
This is the definition of evil. Self-serving, I-hate-being-humble-and-happy, let’s fuck shit up, get belligerent, not give a fuck about cranking it at an intersection, I’m ready to be apathetic as shit, music that is more than mildly addictive.
DOWNLOAD
13. Neo Violence (Shazam Remix)
Some Thanksgiving break, chilling in the range on cold nights with T-time, waiting for KJ to come back, disco shit. The only thing that comes to mind when I hear this.
DOWNLOAD
14. I want I want (LAZRTAG Remix)
Some midnight electro rave madness that blows the fuck up right in your face. The beats and backdrop sounds are so fucking catchy that I can’t help but put this shit on repeat when I’m looking to go fucking ballistic (in the best, friendliest way possible.)
DOWNLOAD
15. Works For Me - The Twelves
This is some happy beginning electro that tends to get stuck in my head all the time. Goddamn you, Twelves. This one is very reminiscent of my days of going to parties and being the shy voyeur in the middle of a scene.
