Pet Shop Boys
With Electric, the Pet Shop Boys 12th album, Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe made glossy platinum pop perfect for serotonin-craving EDM crowds half their age. Any track from Electric, which hit #3 on the UK Album Charts, could feasibly be played out by DJs playing Ultra's Main Stage, especially "Vocal," a soaring and strangely addictive mega-EDM track as only the proto-EDM Pet Shops Boy could do. Could someone like Avicii have gotten away with naming a song "Love Is A Bourgeois Construct”?
