EDM Moments in 2012

As the year end approaches we think it is appropriate to share what we have found. EDM Sauce recently posted what they thought were the top ten best moments in EDM this past year. We at Radikal couldn’t agree more, so we picked a few of our favorites to share with you.

Ellie Goulding and Skrillex breaking up had to be one of the most disappointing pieces of EDM news. I think everyone had high hopes for this absolutely adorable couple. Maybe one day they’ll find their ways back to each other.

Rusko Releasing his music for free on his website. Let’s hope more EDM artists get angry and give us free music! You can get his free EP “KAPOW” by paying with a tweet or facebook post or by joining his mailing list. If you want, you can buy it on iTunes with money instead… but why would you do that?

EDC Las Vegas sold out this past summer and had a record breaking 320,000 attendees. This was such big news because it was the biggest festival ever in the history of Electronic Dance Music. In fact the dates have already been set for 2013’s Las Vegas Electric Daisy Carnival!

Deadmau5 randomly found vocals to his song “The Veldt” thanks to today’s social media. Joel Zimmerman created the song during a 22-hour live streaming session and was inspired by the short story “The Veldt” by Ray Bradbury. Chris James reached out to Deadmau5 with his own lyrics that captured the essence of the short story and Zimmerman loved it. The song was officially released June 24, 2012 and the rest is history.

MTV’s VMA’s finally has an electronic dance music category! Enough said!

Swedish House Mafia announced on June 24, 2012 that their next tour will be their last. “One Last Tour” is going on now. You still have a chance to see them live!

Can you think of any better moments that happened for EDM in 2012? Let us know!

Al Walser, Officially Famous?

Have you heard of Al Walser? No? If you have it’s probably because he’s been all over the music blogs since he was nominated for a Grammy. In fact we posted about him last week. Here is a little overview and update so far.

His song, “I Can’t Live Without You” was nominated for “Best Dance Music Recording” alongside artists like Skrillex, Swedish House Mafia, Avicii and Calvin Harris. The world of music blogs is in a sort of shock and awe over this extremely random nomination.

Yahoo music refers to the song as “an effort that’s not quite Rebecca Black-level terrible, but pretty close in terms of, well, not exactly making the professional grade.” House.net stated, “Certainly, it is difficult to believe that Al Walser’s single was legitimately nominated for the award in question, particularly when one actually listens to it.”

It’s hard not to feel embarrassed for Al Walser because this song is so bad! So bad in fact, we have to share it with you, again!

Here is the additional information. Strangely enough, there is also a video on YouTube of Deadmau5’s Joel Zimmerman reacting to Al Walser’s nomination that was posted under the user name “Al Walser.” It’s hard to tell if Zimmerman is angry, sarcastic or actually doesn’t care at all. Check it out for yourself.

As they say, any publicity is good publicity, what do you think?
