2013 was a major year when it comes to tracks with HUGE drops in them, especially with the rise of festival trap being played at concerts and festivals. We decided to compile a list of our favorite tracks from 2013 with the sickest drops. Check out all of these huge anthems from 2013:
This banger dropped Sep. 2nd by D.O.D. As soon as it drops, it will actually have you going bananas wherever you are, so be ready.
A more recent track from Carnage, Mara was released November 8th. A message from Carnage, “When you play this record….GIVE NO F*CKS!”. YO, MARA!
Last found alongside Quintino for “Puzzle” and mustering label boss Hardwell for edit duties, “Fifteen” probes the unveiling of yet another exclusive ID from his beloved Tomorrowland set and another accomplished young asset. Hardwell adds his signature sound to Fifteen making this a festival favorite of the summer.
Coming from Toronto brothers DVBBS and LA-based Borgeous, “Tsunami” delivers an orchestral progressive melody with a tidal wave of bass behind it. Teasing on the edge of hardstyle, its chant-worthy rhythm and floor-shaking beat will easily slot themselves into a number of upcoming main stage sets. Read more about TSUNAMI here.
This list wouldn’t be complete without at least one remix of Martin Garrix’s huge anthem Animals. So far, my favorite remix has been from Milk N Cookies, identical twin brother DJs and electronic music producers based out of Chicago. They have been musicians their whole lives and began their electronic music career in 2009 at the University of Illinois. “Get your tits out, get ready to flap your willy in the wind.” You will not be disappointed listening to this remix, even if you’re burnt out from hearing the original.

W&W, Dutch DJ/Producers duo consisting of Willem van Hanegem & Ward van der Harst are well known for their big room sound. Their single, Thunder, dropped on May 5th, and definitely holds to that big room sound.
Boombox Cartel, aka BMBX CRTL, is a bass music duo formed by Americo Garcia (Kozvik) and Jorge Medina (Medz), two producers from Monterrey, Mexico. They released Hysteria on June 21st. This track combines elements of trance with a smattering of the trap we all know and love, reflecting a state of total genre meltdown [from TrapMusic.net].

A bootleg of Flux Pavilion’s banging single, Bass Cannon, from JSTJR. This bootleg, which was released Oct. 17th, hits you with the dubstep sound from the original and adds elements of trap the we all love.
I remember first hearing this at SAMF during Porter’s set. No joke, probably heard LRAD get played close to 10 times that weekend, so when I heard the intro at his set, I didn’t expect much. But once his edit of the drop hit….holy shit. You just need to listen for yourself (preferably on some LOUD speakers).

What was already a huge EDM anthem, Ookay takes GTA’s track, The Crowd, and does what he does best and delivers this glitchy trap remix. Featuring rough scratching and a deep bassline, Ookay’s remix is guaranteed to get “The Crowd” rough and rowdy [from djz.com].
A couple of my favorite Parisian trap producers Simeon and Tomszie released their official remix for the festival banger “Flute” by New World Sound & Thomas Newson on Nov. 11th. This is a nice remix of the festival sound that is taking over EDM.
An incredible collaboration on the DOORN imprint. Dutch hero Quintino collabs with Blasterjaxx on ‘Puzzle’. A thematic build leads into an ear slamming drop of epic proportions! Be prepared, ‘Puzzle’ hits hard! [from HousePlanet.DJ]
Showtek dropped Booyah on Aug. 19th which features We Are Loud & Sonny Wilson. Since then, there have been a lot of notable remixes done of this huge anthem, but the one that hits hardest has to be from Cash Cash, New York’s emerging electronic trio, which was released Nov. 8th this year. Their remix of ‘Booyah’ captures all of the infectious energy of the original into a more concise four-four arrangement – with a cheeky dirty dutch riff thrown in for good measure [from DJ Mag].

Another essential for this list is Jacob Plant’s Fire. The song already has received massive attention from some of the biggest names in the industry (Knife Party, Nero and Afrojack), as well as play time on BBC’s Radio 1 with Zane Lowe. Strong beats hit on the first and second counts, falling into staggered beats on the third and fourth, then transforming later in the song to an all barrage on each count. Check out the exclusive interview with Jacob Plant here.

Last, and most definitely not least, is Gregori Klosman & Wahlstedt’s banger Come On!. This tracks starts off with a fast paced beat that flows perfectly into, a soothing and harmonious build up. The uplifting build up speeds up once again, and drops us right on our faces with relentless, unforgiving synths [from bleedhouse.com].
