In 1883, an island in the Sunda Strait of Indonesia exploded in a wave of cataclysmic volcanic activity. The volcano, called Krakatoa, was responsible for the deaths of no less than 40,000 people, shooting devastating pyroclastic flows all over the surrounding region. The magnitude of the eruption was such that the shockwave from the final explosion reverberated around the globe seven times, and a series of tsunamis was formed in its wake. Krakatoa is now historically considered to be the loudest recorded sound known to man, reaching a deafening 180 decibels, and was heard from 3,000 miles away (think: Los Angeles to New York City).
The purpose of this blog is to replicate the deafening power of the Krakatoa volcano on a microcosmic (and hopefully much less lethal) scale. I sift through the best of the best in the electronic music world, selecting the tracks that warrant the most epic of hair flips, fist pumps, and dance battles. All you have to do is listen as I upload one song per day from the top tier DJs in EDM, and then follow the download links to add them to your personal music library.
There’s just one rule. Headphones on at all times. Volume way, way the fuck up.
Also, no dubstep. Cheers.
