David Guetta has played a pivotal role in turning dance music into chart-topping juggernaut hits. His impact has been impossible to ignore. He can be considered among the elite group of super-producers whose sound is synonymous with an era. His new album, Listen, signals a new path for the producers. “I needed to create a new sound,” he said. “Music is all about cycles, about action and reaction, and there has been a reaction to EDM becoming the new pop. Listen is completely different to anything I’ve done before.”

The album took over three years to produce, give some of it a listen after the jump…

The song “Cool Kids” has us feeling like we’re back in high school. The band, Echosmith, comprising four siblings, released their debut album Talking Dreams late last year, but their single “Cool Kids” is only know making its way through the airwaves across the country. The band formed in 2008 in Toluca Lake, Los Angeles, and in just three years after their formation they were signed to Warner Bros. Records. Their first major big break was when NBC used their song “Tongiht We’re Making History” in a promo for the 2012 Summer Olympics.

Ricky Martin shows us that he hasn’t lost it in his new music video for his new single “Adios.” The men still have him going “loco loco” in his Latin-flavored song. The video, directed by Ethan Ladder, takes place in the Harvelle’s speakeasy in Long Beach, CA. Playing a sexy policeman, bartender, bouncer, mobster, and, of course, singer, Martin makes it hard for us to say adios to his sex appeal.
