Just as the Grammy and Billboard Music Awards, this blog also offers a symbolic recognition to singers, producers, and video directors. This year there are famous and fresh talents on my list. What’s more, I have included the best indie artist category because one of the main goals of Electro Wow is supporting this growing sector who opts to create music autonomously.
You can stream via Spotify each track and add any of these songs to your playlist. Scroll down to find out the best songs.
BEST TECHNO TRACK
I love to see empowered women dominating the charts and the Techno scene year after year. Definitely, “Forever Ravers” by ANNA & Kittin made us enjoy its radioactive bassline all night long in 2019. Everyone will enjoy a good fusion of Electroclash vibes, spacey bleeps, hi-hats, and uplifting vocal lines like “Techno gender fluid” at clubs and raves with this timeless cut.
BEST TRANCE TRACK
The emotions behind this original vocal track will give you goosebumps and leave you singing out loud. Richard Durand’s sound is dynamic and powerful and not for nothing he is one of the most in-demand Trance producers. Moreover, asking Christina Novelli to participate in this production, was a wise decision. So far, I have read hundreds of positive comments on social media, and all Trance fans would agree with me, “Save You” is one of Durand’s best works to date.
BEST HOUSE TRACK
Deltiimo – Happy For The Weekend (L & O 1995 Cool Vibe Remix)
It was back in the late 90s when the original version of “Happy For The Weekend” by Deltiimo was released. In 2019, the UK veteran producer gave it a new dimension with an amazing piano House remix. Believe it or not, it became popular on TikTok, making an impact on Millenials due to the feel-good vibes of Deltiimo’s signature sound.
BEST DISCO TRACK
Purple Disco Machine perfectly knows how to transport us back to the late 70s with his funky reworks. If you don’t dance to the beat of “Emotion”, you’re probably not a human. Also, he creates a sense of nostalgia as he samples a 1974 track entitled, “I Don’t Want To Lose Your Love”. Clearly, he is the Giorgio Moroder of the new era!
Valentino Khan – Pony
The LA-based DJ and producer, Valentino Khan and his booty-shaking Bass House hit “Pony” deserve to be on this list. He often uses a heavy sound that drives partygoers crazy no matter what. Engineered for mass dance floor cracking, “Pony” made its mark on clubs worldwide this year.
Toro y Moi – Ordinary Pleasure
Chaz Bear aka Toro y Moi criticizes consumerism and the Throw-away society on this fun tune called “Ordinary Pleasure”. The American artist offers chill out vibes in combination with upbeat Disco beats. Definitely, he knows how to get you grooving in mere seconds, That’s the reason why this is the best Electro-Pop song of 2019.
Guaynaa – Rebota
“Rebota” by emerging Puerto Rican star, Guaynaa is a one-hit-wonder. In Latin America and abroad, this track has been played over and over again on the radio and nobody gets bored with it. On the contrary, this is a truly addictive Reggaeton banger hard to take off your mind.
BEST INDIE ARTIST
Without a doubt, Phantom Boy is the best indie artist of 2019. We have witnessed the way he puts so much time and energy into his projects. Creatively, he released different 90s Latin hits with a cutting edge sound via Spotify and Apple Music. In 2020, he will drop a brand new album with original productions and modern reworks.
Tove Lo’s fourth studio album is plenty of promising catchy singles. On this occasion, she explores more upbeat rhythms than her previous material. Incredible collaborations with Kylie Minogue, Jax Jones, and MC Zaac should be highlighted too. Recorded in LA and Sweden, the artist portrays a confident attitude while singing lyrics about lust, shame, and defeat.
BEST MUSIC VIDEO
Video directed by Jonas Lindstroem
The dreamy visuals shine a light on the enigmatic Asian culture. Prepare yourself to see some peculiar scenes, which range from martial arts to fantastic South Korean landscapes. Its clean cinematic quality, the choreography, and aesthetics make this clip the best music video of 2019. You can tell a lot of people worked hard behind this visual project.
