In general, I don't listen to much electronic music. It's not that I don't like it. I would eagerly attend a music festival like Electric Daisy Carnival, Electric Forest, Electric Zoo, Electric Slide, whatever. The stage design alone is so spectacular that I would actually enjoy standing in a crowd of 100,000 people for 6-hours. But ordinarily, I'm rarely in the mood to listen to that music for more than 15-30 minutes.
But within the vast world of electronic music, there is a sound that I've come to appreciate. Music that makes you feel like something momentous just ended or started. Tunes that lift you into a new cosmic realm. Epic songs that would play during rapture if Jesus Christ was actually Skrillex. I have never been able to pin down what to call it. So I've created a playlist to try describing it for me.
This Is It is a collection of songs that capture this extraordinary vibe. Since I don't listen to electronic music often, the playlist is short. At the time of posting this, the playlist only contained 9 tracks. But as I continue to pinpoint this sound, I'll add more songs that invoke the emotion that I am describing so vaguely. Take a listen for yourself. Do you feel it?
