You’ve most probably noticed it already : Instagram and TikTok have help some artistic careers absolutely skyrocket, no matter where they are around the world. The powerful algorithm that these two platforms have makes it so that all you need to do is add an “audio” to a dance, a sports video or a fun challenge to see an entire community listen to this very audio on repeat and use it on their own videos as well – you’ve heard of the rap bit called “Jiggle Jiggle” ? Well, it is the ultimate proof of how something can go viral within a minute. As for the darker and more underground genres of electronic music, like bass music and midtempo, there has been a lot going on for years on end, and TikTok has greatly contributed to helping these two music genres reach a broader audience.

Why down talk about this ? Because for our 28th playlist… we’ve let TikTok and Instagram do the curation for us ! The early tracks of Rezz, the Japanese hidden gems of Dxrk as well as the saturated vocalizations of Gravechill all have one thing in common (on top of being tracks you want to listen to on repeat) : they’ve been synced with several thousand videos on both social platforms. Happy listening everyone !
