    Default Songs that changed EDM (for you)

    Everyone has those songs that completely changed how they think about everything. I personally have a huge array of songs that all mean something different to me, and have influenced not only my taste in music, but the music that I make.

    As terrible as it is to admit this, when it came out when I was 10 or 11, Eiffel 65's "Blue" helped me not only figure out that I enjoyed electronic/dance music, and there's no shame in admitting that I still listen to the song.

    It wasn't until about 6 years later, though, that I really got into EDM. And that defining moment is best marked by Cosmic Gate's "Exploration of Space."

    the song that *really* hit home for me. I had listened to electronic music for about 2-3 years already, but this one totally got me.

    the one tune that converted me to the side of love & light was "Dark & Long - Dark Train " by Underworld. My first tentative steps into the underworld back in the day. Or "Earth - Gaia" by the Orb.

    without a doubt this tune did it for me. I was about 13/14 years old and straight up into hip hop, NWA, Puplic Enemy etc then heard this after trying smoking loads...

    I was 12/13 when these came out. I started carrying around cardboard and a boom box soon after.

    This one introduced my ears to the drum machine.

    This one made me realize it didn't have to have lyrics.
