DJ Earworm Releases United State of Pop 2014

Since 2007, DJ Earworm has released an annual mashup of all the pop songs of the year. This year was the hardest.

“The thing that has been most notable in the past two or three years is the decline of EDM,” says Earworm of the 25 songs he selected for this year’s song. “The ‘United State of Pop’ became this dance track from ’09 to ’12, and then starting last year, there just wasn’t enough in that genre to fully support it, so I went down-tempo. And this year, ‘Timber,’ which was popular in January, is the only popular dance track I’m dealing with. It’s definitely down-tempo, so you have to decide, how is this going to go? How am I going to maintain the energy levels while being true to the sound of the year?”

Wait, the decline of EDM? I’m pretty sure Calvin Harris, Alesso, DJ Snake (Turn Down for What which is in this mix) and others were all playing on the radio every hour.
