It was a great year for The Chainsmokers in 2016 releasing the best EDM beats; their #1 hit “Closer” still playing for millions across the world. DJ Snake beats and Calvin Harris tracks still top EDM trends, but the DJ duo continues to impress – Chainsmokers beats are hot right now.
Calvin Harris Beats The Chainsmokers instrumental for Best Music Video
On the scoreboard, however, it’s Calvin Harris who came out on top with two Moon Men to take home: one for Best Male Video and one for Best Electronic Video. Consistent to his classic house and progressive styles, Calvin Harris instrumentals are just plain good. They work great for summer time.
EDM Producer instrumental with Rihanna is a hit
While the former was for his newest hit with Rihanna, “This Is What You Came For,” the second is for a slightly deeper cut, his collaboration with Disciples, “How Deep Is Your Love.” Unfortunately, this means that The Chainsmokers’ track with Daya, “Don’t Let Me Down,” as well as Mike Posner’s “I Took A Pill In Ibiza” and Afrojack’s “SummerThing!” went home empty handed. If I were an EDM artist or DJ, I’d be looking for Afrojack beats and Calvin Harris instrumentals stat!
Best EDM beats ever or is it just Electronic Dance Music Tracks
One of the big things to note about Calvin’s acceptance of his awards – he thanked everyone except for Taylor Swift (who actually weaseled her way into a writing credit for TIWYCF).
“I need to thank Rihanna from the bottom of my heart. You’re a superstar. Every time we worked together, you bring something so magical to the project so thank you,” said Calvin
He also thanked the director of the video, Emil Nava, and “everybody who’s supported this song, who’s watched this video.” Still, no mention of Taylor. She wasn’t even in attendance.
