A lot of people seem to like Phantogram now. And people love the XX too. You might also like MO (there's a slash through the "O"--I don't know what that is called). I'm not into any of those bands but those seem to be in the same style. And, while I'm not a big fan of CHVRCHES, they get some killer people to do remixes for them.

You might also like San Cisco or St. Lucia. Or maybe Noah & The Whale.

A couple weeks ago, I heard a really good remix of Daughter's "Youth (BUDO Remix)". https://soundcloud.com/budo/daughter-youth-budo-remix

If you love good pop music check out Betty Who. I saw her last week with Zak Waters and they both KILLED IT. They're on tour now. IDK where you live but if you live in America, go to see that tour. You will not regret it.

Also, read www.popjustice.com. The guy who runs it, Peter Robinson, is freaking hilarious (and does a monthly comedic comment piece for The Guardian on all sorts of random topics like Ikea, thermostats...). His interviews are golden because he balances asking serious questions and ridiculous questions.

I love so many artists. I'll tell you some of my favorites:


DANCE
- Madeon (my favorite DJ ever--that boy can do no wrong. First time I saw him was astounding. That gig changed my life. I can't say enough good things about him)
- Porter Robinson
- Zedd
- A-Trak
- Oliver*
- Disclosure
- Alex Metric
- Moon Boots*
- Robotaki*
- Daft Punk (mainly pre-RAM)
- 3LAU
- The White Panda
- Basic Physics
- Wave Racer
- RAC (can do no wrong, especially for remixes)
- The Twelves* (also really good at remixes)
- Eric Prydz
- Fred V & Grafix
- Touch Sensitive
- Flight Facilities
- Astre
- Dillon Francis (live sets more than originals)
- The Knocks (remixes more than originals)
- Example (remixes more than originals lately)
- Skrillex
- LeMaitre
- Todd Terje*
- Lenno*
- Fred Falke*
- Justice
- Breakbot*
- Throttle
- M4SONIC
- Tyler Touche*
- Syn Cole
- Cyril Hahn
- Showtek (DJ sets mainly--if you need some good work out music, listen to their sets)
- Calvin Harris (originals only)


The ones with asterisks next to them are ones that are pretty much exclusively disco (but it's all really good stuff).


BANDS/ARTISTS:
- The Beatles
- Paul McCartney
- Wings
- Billy Joel
- Elton John
- Adele
- Ellie Goulding
- The Vaccines
- The 1975
- Arctic Monkeys
- Foster the People (mainly Torches--that entire album is just a treasure trove)
- Oasis (seriously, go back and listen to some of their later stuff, especially their last album; so underrated)
- Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds
- Saint Raymond
- Hozier
- Two Door Cinema Club
- Zak Waters (walks the line between dance and pop)
- The Feeling (first two albums)
- Chance the Rapper (he has been killing it on guest raps)


Good YouTube channels for finding electronic music:
- Majestic Casual
- Proximity
- Disco Thrill
- Monstercat


I realize how overwhelming that is. I guess keep it as a reference if you would like.

For now, I will leave you with a cover that completely changed my view of a song which I couldn't stand: http://youtu.be/Rli7neUuBAE
