EDM has quickly become one of the most developed, trans-formative and lucrative types of dance music to hit us, and hit us hard. It’s not exactly an original feel, but it is welcoming and traces inspirations from deep house to classics from the realm of disco and electro-pop. It’s not for everyone but it is for a lot of people, and in a lot of ways. Van Norden is the epitome of what this genre entails, having a solid place in EDM Folk and Pop circles today. The Canadian native first made his mark in the EDM scene in Vancouver and quickly became a pop visionary, reminiscent of art icons like Moby and Alex Clare. With smartly tuned and hand picked vocals (always a collaborator as Van Norden himself does not) to acoustic simplicities divinely paired with the deep synth heavy beats, expertly producing the Van Norden sound.
Van Norden’s latest EP to release, At First Sight, will hit the public later this month, November 17. For a tease, you can download or stream the single “Love at First Sight”, a transcending trance-pop track, featuring the vocals of Natalie Major, that speaks to any producer palpable for a remix and club hit. The lyrics and tempo speak to the fans of David Guetta, Paul van Dyk, and Freddie Gibbs. This one is not to be missed, not in the club nor the car. Go stream it today!
