    Default I need to find "darker" electro/house music

    I'm trying to find more electro/house music like Drop Down by Designer Drugs

    Whenever I search for stuff like "top rave songs" though, most of the recommendations are really happy sounding cheesy stuff. Anyone able to offer suggestions on stuff with a more noisy and dark-ish approach? I'm thinking more of stuff that's good for dancing to, by the way.

    C'Mon by Tiesto also somewhat has this noise and darker style to it

    Wolfgang Gartner - Wolfgang's 5th Symphony

    Maybe try:
    Madox / John Aquaviva - Running From feat. Tommie Sunshine (Olivier Giacomotto Remix)

    Greg Cerrone - Bullit (Miles Dyson Remix)

    Mike Hulme - Set The Controls (Hedflux Mix)

    BSD - Elektro-Life (You And Me)

    BSD - Phantasmagoria

    RMS & Peak - New Realm (Hedflux mix)


    This isn't really the genre I dig too deep into so I have no idea if those will help at all. You can check all of them out on Beatport if there aren't youtube videos to listen to.

    Anything from huoratron is pretty dark, he's crazy to see play live...so much energy.

    Some stuff from Knife Party too maybe...(this video is nsfw fyi)

    Anything from le castle vania generally has a pretty dark drop to it as well, ESPECIALLY this song. Oh god, it's so good

    that's all I can think of for now...if you need some more just ask and I'll scrounge around a little deeper.

    And you'll definitely tear off the roof with this one:

    I create my own Techno/Hard techno.
    It's a bit dark.
    Lemme know what you think.

    Don't buy it, just click preview. If you like it, I'll send you a free copy. (:

    The Felix Cartal song I might use, and the Les Petits Pilous stuff is really close to what I'm looking for for the show as well. Perhaps what I'm looking for would be better described as having the dynamics and energy of house or club music, but more noisy. Satisfaction by Benny Benassi (particularly the main synth/bass line) is another example of what I'm thinking.

    Thanks for the replies so far, and any other suggestions would still be appreciated!
