12. "Eyes on Fire" (Zeds Dead Remix)
Blue Foundation

This deep, bass-heavy, heady remix is a dark way to demonstrate Zeds Dead. The duo burst onto the scene to create remixes of other electronic songs and has since branched out to have a wide spectrum of trap-, dubstep- and hip-hop-inspired electronic songs.

13. "Wanna Lose You"
Borgeous, tyDi

Borgeous goes slow and soft on his latest release, "Wanna Lose You." The producer/DJ, who has a vast library of songs, is well worth a listen.

14. "Someone to Talk About," ft. Grace Mitchell

The duo Phantoms is known for its guest appearances in the hilarious Snapchat productions of Dillon Francis. Straight and simple, the act's newest single is just plain awesome. This dance track with vintage A-Trak Los Angeles vibes definitely warrants a glass of champagne in hand.

15. "Good Times Roll"
GRiZ & Big Gigantic

With his own positive version of jam-band, funky electronic music, it's nearly impossible to not groove to GRiZ — especially when he's wailing his saxophone atop a DJ booth. His song "Good Times Roll," with Big Gigantic, is loaded with the works: electronic beats, a soulful songstress, a horn section, simple call-and-response lyrics and awesome samples to drag you to the dance floor.

16. "Start Over (feat. Cindy Zanotta) [Sean Tyas Remix]"
Sean Tyas

Trance fam: This one's for you. Up-and-comer Sean Tyas's track was featured on episode 790 of legendary Armin Van Buuren's A State of Trance. Brace yourselves: Tyas is sure to take you to another world.

17. "Funk With Me (feat. Big Gigantic)"

Snails is another one of the jam-band, funky, Big G-partnering dance acts at Decadence this year. Chances are if you like GRiZ, Big Gigantic, Gramatik — perhaps with a slight hint of Bassnectar — then Snails is another one to add to your list. Or maybe you're just here for the sax.
18. "All I Ever Wanted"
Michael Brun

Haitian DJ Michael Brun typically combines island influences in his songs; however, he took on a strong Deadmau5 influence in this track that he produced for the Netflix original movie, XOXO. Brun is a regular at Ultra in Miami and Coachella, so make sure to check out what all the hype is about with this world-traveling DJ.

19. "Aftergold feat. Tove Stryke"
Big Wild

If you're familiar with the MØ/Major Lazer collaborations, this exploratory song from Big Wild should put you at ease. With brilliant sampling and magnificent vocals from Tove Stryke, this song, and the accompanying music video shot in Las Vegas and Colorado, will make you want to strike out on an adventure.

20. "After the Rain."

For even more electro-funk, we turn to our penultimate artist, Sunsquabi. More laid-back than GRiZ and Snails, Sunsquabi offers a reprieve from Decadence's fast-paced, bass-filled lineup. If you're feeling coked out after listening to the other songs on our list, mellow out to this track, "After the Rain."

21. "Cockney Thug"
Caspa & Rusko

Last but not least, we offer you Rusko, who played the official Decadence pre-party at Beta on Thursday night. From this godfather of dubstep, we end with "Cockney Thug," off his album FabricLive.37, with Caspa, live from London's famous Fabric nightclub.
