Attended my first Beyond Wonderland festival in The Bay and as a helluva time as it was the music wasn’t really my thing (it’s about more than just the music). It’s not like they lacked good EDM artists, loved Zeds Dead & WhiteNoize, but the majority of it suffered from the dreaded dead beat (see dirty bit) loved by the Molly driven audience plaguing the EDM scene.
So after the festival was over Saturday night, I wanted to blast a little of my own EDM favs on the ride home. And first to pop in my mind was a newly discovered remix of Whitney Houston’s “It’s Okay” by Arches. It may cop out to sampling some of the finest of the 90’s, but with its deep house depths Whitney has been revived with one helluva banger set for a massive audience. I’d love to see this tried out on a similar audience.
