Electric Zoo 2011: DA’s top 5 tracks
We heard almost too much music at Electric Zoo festival. But, there were a few clear favorites that had their fair share of airplay. We won’t waste any time with flowery introductions or unnecessary prose. Just check out our top tracks of Electric Zoo 2011 after the break.
Who played it: ATB, Arty
Why it was good: If you were already in the tent this song was originating from, you were lucky. If you were navigating the festival grounds and heard the faint mumbles of it from a distance, you most likely ran your way over so that you wouldn’t miss it live. Certain tracks are nothing but energizing, and this is one of them.
Who played it: AN21 & Max Vangeli, Alesso, Sander van Doorn, Afrojack
Why it was good: Dubbed by many “The Anthem of E-Zoo”, “Calling” made its way into more than a few DJ sets over the course of the weekend. Having heard it both at the Zoo and at Pacha, it’s a track that gets measurably better the bigger the soundspace is.
Who played it: David Guetta
Why it was good: For many, this was the first time they’d had the chance to hear the track played out in a festival setting, and for many songs this entails taking on a whole new sound. This is a track that lends itself to partying under a clear blue sky on crisp green grass. We’ll always be wondering why Afrojack himself didn’t drop it, however.
Who played it: Skrillex
Why it was good: The original was great, and this remix by Skrillex flips all the switches into overdrive. It’s not every day you feel such bass pulsing through your core; those at Skrillex’s set were indeed treated to something delightful.
Editor’s Note: Grab the free Vandalism bootleg of the track here!
Who played it: Tiesto, Sander van Doorn
Why it was good: Well, if the song title isn’t enough, and if the fact that two of the world’s biggest DJs chose to drop it isn’t enough…then try giving it a listen. It’s difficult to hate on such a well-assembled number.
