"I Told My Heart That It Was Just a Summer Thing"

Despite the fact that EDM has become the dominant genre of music posted on this blog, there's a part of me that wishes EDM could stay more specialized. What I mean by that is all too often pop music gets labeled as EDM just because a well known DJ's name is on it. Case in point, Afrojack's latest single SummerThing! featuring Mike Taylor. It's a bubbly, repeatable top 40 track that has a dash of synths after what some might call a "drop." I've raved about a lot of Afrojack tracks in the past and he deserves the utmost respect for being one of a handful of DJs that can make everything from heartfelt ballads to club anthems, but this one is not for me. I cringe at the thought of how much top 40 radio is going to wear this one out and the fact that I'm not a fan of it before it hits radio is not a good sign. I get what they're trying to do with the whole breezy summer vibe, but it's like a light beer than has under 100 calories, just a little too light for me...#SummerThing
