12 Favorite Local EDM Mixes of 2012
Edward Navarro, "Rebel Disco Podcast #001"
As we documented in a recent DJ Dossier that focused on Rebel Disco, the mission of the six-member dance music cabal is "having fun playing music for party people." And those sounds include plenty of disco, house music, acid, and techno, which are the exact same genres permeating this 72-minute mix by the collective's Edward Navarro, who dipped into his ample music collection to create pure audio intoxication that's guaranteed to get rumps shaking or heads bobbing.
Prince$$, "TH3 F1R$T"
Thomy Hoefer is one multi-talented and creative cat. Not only is he aces at designing lighting elements for local club gigs, but the dude can also put together some whiz-bang visual feasts that typically are projected on the walls of Bar Smith and other downtown establishments. Then there are his skills at putting together a killer mix, which this 59-minute EDM gem certainly qualifies as. As Prince$$ (pronounced "Prince Money Money"), Hoefer assembled an epic selection of electro-house hits, club banger blockbusters, and dubstep-laced tracks that hits your ears with relentless waves of dance floor favorites like Tonite Only's "We Run the Night," Zedd's "Slam the Door," Hardwell's "Spaceman," and the Knife Party/ Swedish House Mafia collaboration "Antitode."
