Listening to Surrender by the Chemical Brothers tonight sent chills down my spine as it always does. It's hard to believe that the album was released 12 years ago.
When I first bought the album, my favorite track was "Under the Influence", but over time that changed, and today my favorite track is "Orange Wedge" followed by "Let Forever Be". Not really dance fare, but there's always "Hey Boy Hey Girl" and "Out of Control" which get me dancing to this day.
And I have to admit, the moment I was most upset with myself for not going to Coachella this year was when I saw a youtube video of "Hey Boy Hey Girl" from Coachella. Why the fuck did I miss the Chemical Brothers live?

Ishkur's guide to electronic music is a fun site too. It looks like it hasn't been updated in a while- as in, not since before dubstep was really coming up big- but it is an incredibly exhaustive, incredibly biased and condescending look at the evolution of each genre of edm. The tutorial is also pretty hilarious. HG, something tells me you might enjoy this.
I don't know if any of you guys have ever listened to Showtek. But they are the reason I really started getting into EDM back a few years ago. I heard seattle native DJ Wheelz spin Showtek at a rave and it was game over. LOVE that shit. The beat right after the vocals gives me fucking chills.
