Top 10 Albums We Can’t Wait For This Summer

Deadmau5 drops details on new album

The recent release of the Paradiso 2014 lineup by USC Events undoubtedly signals the outset of what is affectionately known as ‘festival season’. Massives such as EDC, Shambhala, BumbershootParadiso and more give fans across the country opportunities to see artists that they otherwise wouldn’t have. What should not be lost, at least this summer, is the growing number of albums being released from major artists. No matter your genre(s) of choice, there is sure to be a major work fitting your tastes coming soon. To help sort through the madness, we’ve created a list of 10 (and a few extra) albums you won’t want to miss.

Honorable Mention

Even though his album already came out, Skrillex’s Recess deserves a nod for setting the bar for dance music albums this year. The man also known as Sonny Moore ended the debate, once and for all, on whether or not ‘Dubstep is dead’ and again became a must-listen. We’ve also included Knife Party and Pendulum as honorable mentions, as Rob Swire tweeted that albums for each project would be released this year. Additional artists with albums, or statements of such, coming out that you should look out for include: Madeon, Eric Prydz, Dash Berlin, and Feed Me.

10. Andrew Rayel – Find Your Harmony – May 30th

One of the most exciting and talented producers in trance today, Andrew Rayel is releasing his first artist album on May 30th. The prodigy of trance-king Armin van Buuren, Rayel’s debut release is titled Find Your Harmony, which is also the name of the first of 18 songs on the album. Find Your Harmony is being released via Armin’s Armada Music label and is available for pre-order on iTunes here.

9. tyDi – Redefined – September 2014

Australian producer tyDi, also known as Tyson Illingworth, is releasing Redefined later this year via Armada Music with no firm date yet announced. It will be tyDi’s followup to his 25-track album Hotel Rooms which was released in November of 2013. In an interview with Your EDM, tyDi said that each track on Redefined has vocals and that no tracks in the album sound the same. The first single off of the album, Stay featuring Dia Frampton, has been released and is the first of many before Redefined is released in September, tyDi said.

8. Arty – Album Title TBA – TBA 2014

The first artist to release an album off of the newly created Insomniac Records label will be Russian producer Arty. Coupled with the announcement, Arty released a teaser for the single Up All Night featuring Angel Taylor, which will be on the full-length album. The partnership between Insomniac Events and Interscope Geffen A&M creates a large opportunity for artists as Insomniac Records.

The new label is distributed by IGA, a subsidiary of international music corporation Universal Music Group. This gives Arty (and others) the ability to get his new tunes out to the masses with ease. As the first release off of the label, the pressure will be on to put out a successful album, and there’s no doubt Arty will deliver.
