Default 'Good' EDM songs, with a message of Hope. Making a mix.

Got a lot of stuff.


But more like this?


Or:
Good beat, Hopeful lyrics.

I will leave this forum the same question i started with...

I could rec you EDM all day, but your "message of hope" theme is throwing me off. However, I was listening to this band already and I love this song, so maybe it will work:



this one's pretty bomb as well, and a little slower to add some variety:

Most of the EDM I listen to is dark, hopeless and sometimes utterly demonic, but here's one I like that gives the impression you're talking about. If you like butterflies I guess...
Seems to me it might at least be a good intro song for the mix, assuming you're not actually mixing like a DJ would.



Edit:

I totally forgot about Moderat/Apparat. Thanks York. Lemme see what I have.

Edit2:

Nope. All his music is sad as f*ck.

Haha this was exactly my initial problem, I could hardly find much of anything that I personally have.

The Moderat song was the closest thing to at least neutral that I could find, his music is crazy slow and depressing :P

Yea man, you know how it is when there are only a couple happy-sounding songs you can find in your library. Rock horns though. Rock horns. I completely support the evilness.

I really like the Cut Copy one, I'm using that. Thanks.

Bassnectar , I like but not for this particular mix.
Thank you, though.



Yeah, I'm 'stumped' as well.


I dunno this is for a friend of my wife's...who helped out.
English is her second language, don't want her to get the wrong idea.

Nothing too sexual, right?
I've got about 5 different mixes.

Gonna have to separate the CDs.
'Sleep'
'Music'
'Etc'.

Ongoing project, to show my appreciation. To her.
All the stuff I come up with is either...sad or angry.

Thanks again.

Maybe you could use one or two out of this selection. Especially the last one.

Got a suggestion: Tristam - Till It's Over
I guess it has to do something with hope... :P
Check for "help me with software! :S" please! I posted another question!
Thanks, bye

Chameleon, I'm using them last two. Definitely.
Love this place, ask and you shall receive. A very knowledgeable community.

Markvt14, nice, not sure if it's right for this mix but it's in the pipeworks.
Friend of a friend may (let me buy) a copy. 1 ¢.

So, it's all above board.

Welll, fellas I gotta get snappin on this mix...this 6th edition.
Appreciate the comments. I may post a few more times over the next hour or two.

Thanks again.
I leave with this:

Did you know George Clinton remixed this???

Anyways, I like the original. Kinda dark, not really 'uplifting'...at all. But, it's either this or DCD, etc.
OR, dance music, and I'm just going out on a limb that...maybe she at least dances in her room?

Not really, 'get your ass out of bed/your apartment/ home' and have fun' type material.
Maybe. 'm trying to get this 'mentally troubled' person out of bed and into having fun again?
But, I hardly know her. **** is deep. It's a challenge, and I've been making mixes for...20+ years.


Probably won't include NE in the final mix....just thought I'd throw it out there.
Helped me. It's really hard....making a mix for someone you know very little about.

Good lyrics, though.
