Electronic dance music is often associated with timed electronic sounds and calculated beat drops. While this association is accurate to some degree, many of the producers of dance music have classical music backgrounds. When the timing works electronically, removing the beat can lead to some incredible music.
Above and Beyond played two heartfelt acoustic shows at the Greek Theatre last weekend (check out Marcus Slater’s review of one of the shows), with each of the three group members playing multiple instruments. Inspired by what Above and Beyond did, I looked into other acoustic covers of electronic music. So kick back, relax, and start this week off right with some beautiful acoustic music and vocals.
