Fool's Gold co-founder and artist, A-Trak, revived the seemingly lost genre of Bloghaus during his Holy Ship set at the start of this year. The full two hour set was posted to his Soundcloud. The producer and DJ has expressed his appreciation for the often forgotten genre in the past. In October 2015 he released another full Bloghaus set and claimed some of his favorite EDM songs are from the Bloghaus era.
For those unfamiliar, Bloghaus is a subgenre of electronic music that arose from a fanbase that primarily used the internet and blogs to discover new music. Its short-lived legacy lasted from 2004-2007 (debatably 2009) during Myspace's peak. The sound combines traditional music with techno, acid, and house elements to provide a modern and dance-y twist.
Combining these elements with newer music, A-Trak delivered a modern Bloghaus set. From industrial techno sounds, groovy house beats, and remixes of almost every great early 2000's song, the set will keep you guessing as well as dancing. He starts off strong by opening with a Christina Aguilera remix and by the end has incorporated an AC/DC Thunderstruck remix, Shooting Stars by Bag Raiders, and Chromeo.
