I’m sure you have relentlessly tried to describe house music to your parents as being the modern day equivalent to classical music. After disagreeing they tend to take the argument further, stating electronic artists and the artists today are nothing compared to the rock ‘classics’ of the seventies or eighties. Well this might help with future arguments like this. Flight Facilities, the famed Australian duo, known best for twisting seventies classics into modern day nu-disco, have re-visited Walter Murphy’s 1976 Saturday Night Fever classic “A Fifth of Beethoven,” one of the most influential tracks of the disco-era. Music connoisseurs will recognize passages from the first movement of LudwigvanBeethoven’sFifth Symphony. If you find yourself wanting more funky renditions that connect generations of music lovers alike check out the rest of Flight Facilities’ “Triple j Mix Up Exclusives 1972-1982” Be sure to give it a listen and let me know what you think of it. I know it sounds a lot like it at first, but it introduces the new elements to dance within. Modernizing the older yet classic songs. I might be something interest for your you to hear, when I heard it my first thought was “OK, its new and fun-like….”
It has been announced recently through Diplo’ssocial media accounts that his latest production, was in fact a collaboration with one of Melbourne’s up and coming producer Swick. The Australian up-comer released an EP entitled Bubbles via the Mad Decent imprint Jeffree’s last year and is now back for a whole lot more! Through this snippet, it is almost straight away, recognizable of both producers unique sound, Dancehall inspired vibes, driven by female vocals and with a synth beat. Combining the sounds of perhaps reggae and moombahton, both producers give listeners a sneak peak of what could be 2013’s new hit of the ages.

If you consider Daft Punk to be the father of the American EDM boom, then it’s time to vote for Grandpa. German electronic music visionaries Kraftwerk have been nominated for entry into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the first electronic act to be up for such honors.
In addition to recording ten groundbreaking studio albums, Kraftwerk quite literally helped invent many of the innovations that the music we love takes for granted today. From the vocoder to the drum pad and beyond, Kraftwerk were analog pioneers that were light years ahead of their 1970s contemporaries. Cited as influences by multiple generations and genres of artists, ranging from the French robots to Depeche Mode, Björk, and every single techno DJ, with unimpeachable longevity (they played Ultra Music Festival and swiftly sold out eight nights at New York’s Museum of Modern Art earlier this year), it is no exaggeration to say electronic music would not be the same without them.
You can (and should) vote to support Kraftwerk’s nomination for entry here.
