Nicky Romero and ZROQ Ask WTF!?

Another assist to Beatport for the recommendation on the track below. This was another dance floor heat rock that is comfortably sitting at #5 on Beatport's top 100 singles. I'll ask again, where you at iTunes? With more an more Beatport exclusives like the one below, I'm starting to wonder if EDM as a whole is just tired of not getting the return they want from the Apple mothership.

Prior to this song I had never heard of @zroq, but what I can tell you is that @nickyromero is slowly becoming one of my go to EDM sources. For starters, he's been rubbing shoulders with all the right people and serving up some high quality dance music of late. The biggest double edged sword in EDM is that artists mostly tour and make singles. For example, examining Nicky's discography, he's got damn near 30 singles/EPs, but no studio albums. Depending on how you look at that, it could be gift or a curse. I'm of the opinion that studio albums are usually watered down anyways, so why the hell not just release singles?

The world might just be a better place with all singles, but I guess that would take the fun out of finding diamonds in the rough if all the "best" tracks were spoon-fed. Interesting debate, but if most tracks can energize the club like WTF!? then I could go either way...#BothWorkForMe
