What’s hot in 2013

If you’re looking for the latest and greatest in electronic party music, you’ve come to the right place. In this article, we’ll be taking a look at some of the hottest tracks in 2013. From house to trance, there’s something for everyone on this list.

Electro house

Electro house is a subgenre of house music. It is characterized by a prominent bassline and/or tempo de-emphasizing the percussion. Although §quot;electro-house$quot; and $quot;progressive house$quot; are often used interchangeably, progressive house is distinguished from electro-house by having a slower tempo with emphasis on melody and chord progressions, while electro-house is distinguished from progressive house by having a more mechanical feel and staccato 16th note beats in the main bassline.

Some well known electro house producers and DJs include Steve Aoki, Hardwell, Skrillex, Afrojack, Avicii, justice, Knife Party and David Guetta.

Progressive house

Progressive house is a style of house music that developed in the early 1990s. It is characterized by a tempo around 130 beats per minute, cymbals, and reverb-heavy melodies. The style was developed by producers such as Pete Tong and Paul Oakenfold, and was popular in nightclubs in Ibiza and Manchester.

In 2013, progressive house has made a comeback, with producers such as Deadmau5 and Avicii creating hits in the genre. The sound has also been adopted by some dubstep and trance producers, resulting in a new subgenre known as progressive trance.


Dubstep music has been growing in popularity since the early 2000s. This type of electronic music is characterized by its use of a powerful bass, which often drops out at key moments to create a sense of suspense. In recent years, dubstep has become one of the most popular genres of electronic music, particularly in the UK and North America.

As dubstep continues to grow in popularity, more and more artists are beginning to experiment with the genre. This has led to a wide range of new subgenres, including wonky, brostep, future garage, and post-dubstep. While some purists argue that these new styles are not true dubstep, there is no doubt that they are all heavily influence by the original genre.

If you’re interested in getting into dubstep, or simply want to know what all the fuss is about, check out some of the tracks below. These tunes represent some of the best that the genre has to offer, and should give you a good idea of what dubstep is all about.


Trap music is a genre that is having a moment right now. It originated in the early 2000s in the southern United States, and is defined by its heavy use of 808 drums, pitch-shifted city sounds, and aggressive lyrics. The term “trap” comes from the places where drug deals typically go down.

In recent years, trap has been influenced by other genres, including EDM and pop. This has resulted in a more mainstream sound that is still hard-hitting and bass-heavy. Some of the biggest names in trap music right now are Flosstradamus, Baauer, and RL Grime.

If you’re looking for something new to listen to in 2013, trap music is a good place to start.


2013 was another banner year for electronic party music. We saw the continued rise of dubstep and trap, the explosion of future bass, and the rise of hardstyle. We also saw a return to form for progressive house and trance. With so much great music being produced, it’s hard to narrow it down to just a fewselections. But these are the tracks that we think truly represent the best of what 2013 had to offer. Thanks for reading, and we’ll see you next year!
