Awesome! Upvote for "The Chase" -- I love that beat.

First heard it on Coast to Coast AM -- found that one real quick. I may feature that tomorrow on my Mix!

Check it out #blakes-mix

I'll make sure I listen to it. Part 2 of this post coming out next week, hope you'll find some interesting stuff in there too.

These are all good... but it needs more #cowbell. If your going to show the progression of electronic music... share with us the groundbreaking styles and how they were influenced by predecessors. I love the tracks you have posted but I'm missing the backstory.

This would be a hell of a lot more interesting if you offered your opinion or provided some facts to explain.

Just a thought

You're right, and I thought about doing that. I'm not native to a lot of these genres, and just wanted to provide a quick overview. Next post I will pick some of my all time favorite tracks and describe why they appeal to me. Upvoted for needs more cowbell.

Nice, keep it coming

Part 2 probably coming in a week or so.

I love Halyon On and On omg,... and 90s synthpop was revolutionairy,... the 90s was a golden age for new sounds, we now live in a shmorgasborg of new music in this day and age, nice post thanks
