Hip-Hop infused EDM songs are certainly not new, but for quite some time now they've been becoming even more popular with trap and heavy bass tracks. However, those aren't the only genres rappers are featured in. For instance, Tiësto and Dzeko have just dropped a hip-hop infused future house track with Post Malone and Preme that is definitely one of 2018's summer anthems.
"Jackie Chan" is a positive feel-good song that has those sweet tropical vibes that every summery record has. With a warm guitar, uplifting drops and catchy lyrics accompanied by Post Malone and Preme's perfectly fitting vocals, this fresh hip-hop infused dance release is too good to be true -and trust me, by the time the song ends you'll be looking for more and can't help but put it on repeat.
But you know, "Jackie Chan" isn’t the only EDM hip-hop crossover that works really well. We’ve got ten ridiculous crossovers right here just to prove it!
Calvin Harris ft. Snoop Dogg, John Legend & Takeoff - Holiday
Continuing with that summer vibe, Calvin Harris' Funk Wav Bounce Vol 1 is a treasure trove for those old 90's hip-hop/R&B and 70's funk/soul songs that just take you back. So enjoy the chill and easy going "Holiday" before we get into some bass heavy tracks.
Diplo, French Montana & Lil Pump ft. Zhavia Ward - Welcome to the Party
Having released his hip-hop and dance infused California EP earlier this year, it's no surprise that Diplo was enlisted in producing a track for Deadpool 2's soundtrack. And boy, does it fit Deadpool's badassery super well!
Yellow Claw ft. Juicy J & Lil Debbie - City On Lockdown
"City On Lockdown" is possibly the most massively bass heavy track on Yellow Claw's Los Amsterdam. And with Juicy J and Lil Debbie's vocals, it’s pretty empowering too.
DJ Snake ft. Jeremih, Young Thug & Swizz Beatz - The Half
DJ Snake brought the fire with his debut album Encore featuring hits like "Let Me Love You" with Justin Bieber and "Middle" with Bipolar Sunshine. But with quite a few genres packed into this album, DJ Snake also has some hip-hop infused gems right smack in the middle of it.
Marshmello & Juicy J ft. James Arthur - You Can Cry
Slowing things down a bit, we have Marshmello's most recent release, "You Can Cry." It doesn’t quite have that "Marshmello sound" we're used to, but it's still such a beautiful song, especially with the extraordinary vocals of Juicy J and James Arthur.
Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike ft. Gucci Mane - All I Need
Earlier this month Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike released their own hip-hop infused house track with Gucci Mane. Paired with its colorful space-themed music video, "All I Need" is pretty mesmerizing.
Skrillex & Rick Ross - Purple Lamborghini
Suicide Squad is another superhero/villain movie that features an EDM hip-hop crossover, "Purple Lamborghini." Skrillex and Rick Ross totally transform everyone’s favorite Gotham villain, Joker, into a badass gangster.
Alison Wonderland ft. Chief Keef - Dreamy Dragon
From one of 2018's most highly anticipated albums, Awake, comes Alison Wonderland's chill hip-hop infused track with Chief Keef, "Dreamy Dragon." With all of those sounds mixed together, she really hit it out of the park. It’s a no-brainer why "dreamy" is in the title.
A-Trak ft. Quavo & Lil Yachty - Believe
Quavo and Lil Yachty have been in a lot of EDM hip-hop crossovers for Steve Aoki, Diplo and Major Lazer to name a few. And to add to that list, they're both also on a super catchy and fun A-Trak song!
What So Not & James Earl ft. Rome Fortune & Tommy Swisher - Demons
What So Not released his powerful debut album Not All The Beautiful Things this year too and it's packed with a bunch of amazing talent including Skrillex, San Holo, SLUMBERJACK, Dyro and even Toto, the group behind one of the 80's popular hits, "Africa." So when it comes to "Demons," there's no doubt it'll be anything less than great.
Of course, there's a ton more of EDM hip-hop crossovers out there and I'm pretty sure there will be a lot more in the near future, but we hope you've enjoyed our selection!
