An electronic music lover’s guide to the top 10 tracks of 2007.


It’s difficult to argue against the idea that electronic music has come a long way in recent years. In 2007, we saw the release of some truly groundbreaking tracks that pushed the boundaries of what is possible with electronic production. Here are ten of the best electronic tracks of 2007.


#10 “Bodies” by Robbie Williams
This Robbie Williams track starts with a simple, bouncing bassline that carries the entire song. The lyrics are melancholy, but the overall feeling of the track is playful and fun. The music video is reported to have cost over $1 million to produce, and it features Williams in a number of different guises, including that of a banker, telemarketer, and office worker.


9. “I Remember” by deadmau5 and Kaskade – This track was the first single off of the album “Random Album Title” by deadmau5. It was also featured in an episode of the TV show “Grey’s Anatomy.”


Tied for 8th place are two tracks that couldn’t be more different. Justice’s “Genesis” is a simple, electro-house stomper with a kids’ choir sample that somehow works perfectly. On the flipside is LCD Soundsystem’s “All My Friends,” an 11-minute, electro-tinged, post-punk rock opera about getting old and losing touch with your friends. It’s an instant classic and one of the best tracks of the year.


#7 – Above & Beyond feat. Zoë Johnston “Good For Me”

2007 was a big year for trance music, and Above & Beyond’s Good For Me was one of the biggest anthems of the year. The track features the unique and beautiful voice of Zoë Johnston, who would go on to become a regular collaborator with the trio. Good For Me is a perfect example of Above & Beyond’s signature sound: big melodies, driving drums, and an emotionally charged breakdown that is sure to send chills down your spine.


DJ Tiesto – “In the Dark”

A tune so haunting and beautiful, it’s hard to believe it was produced by the same man who brought us the unabashedly commercial “Adagio for Strings.” “In the Dark” is eight minutes of ethereal synth pads, gently plucked guitars, and a simple but effective piano melody, all framed by Tiesto’s signature beats. The result is a track that’s both epic and intimate, light and dark, perfect for both the club and the bedroom.


5. “This Is the House That Jack Built” by Simian Mobile Disco

Featuring a throbbing bassline and catchy vocals, “This Is the House That Jack Built” was one of the biggest hits of 2007. The track propelled Simian Mobile Disco to the top of the charts and cemented their place as one of the hottest electronic acts around.


#4: Dubfire – “Roadkill”

Originally released on Dubfire’s Tehran EP, “Roadkill” is a dark, thumping track that would come to be one of the biggest hits off of his debut album, Global. The track features a catchy synth melody and a heavy bassline that is sure to get any club going.


3. “I Remember” – Deadmau5 & Kaskade

This track hit #1 on Billboard’s Hot Dance Club Play chart and was one of the most played tracks at clubs around the world in 2007. It features a haunting vocal sample from Haley Gibby that is guaranteed to send chills down your spine.


2. “Pjanoo” by Eric Prydz

This classic track by Swedish house maestro Eric Prydz was originally released in 2008, but it didn’t really start picking up steam until 2007. “Pjanoo” is a perfect example of Prydz’s signature sound: catchy melodies, rich chords, and thumping basslines. The track quickly gained popularity in the club scene and has since become one of the most iconic electronic music tracks of all time.


“Time to Pretend” by MGMT

The first track on MGMT’s Oracular Spectacular, “Time to Pretend” is an unapologetic ode to the hedonistic lifestyle of a rock star. Over a throbbing synth line and distorted guitars, Andrew VanWyngarden and Ben Goldwasser sing about doing drugs, getting rich, and living fast and die young. It’s a catchy, hook-laden track that epitomizes everything that was great about electronic music in 2007.
