If you look online, you’ll quickly see that there’s a lot of EDM (electronic dance music) podcasts out there, with multiple podcasts for every genre. It can be pretty intimidating to decide which ones are worth listening to. Luckily, you have us to help you out. Rest assured, with these podcasts you’ll be listening to the latest tracks in electronic music every week. Here are the 5 GTE-approved podcasts that you gotta start listening to:

1. Tiesto’s Club Life


Well, what can you say? I mean, its TIESTO. The number 3 DJ in the world consistently features the latest tracks, remixes, bootlegs, and mashups from the top DJ’s in the world. Combining trance, minimal, and several genres of house music, he finds a way to make his podcasts sound fresh and innovative every week. His podcast is released on iTunes every monday.

2. BBC Radio 1 with Pete Tong


In addition to Tiesto’s podcast, this is a MUST for the freshest tracks in EDM. Been in the game for nearly 30 years, Pete Tong is one of the most recognizable faces in the industry. His program showcases the latest in dance and EDM, and is one of the most listened-to podcasts in the world. Check his podcast out every friday from 4-6 EST.

3. Laidback Luke (FG DJ Live)


(Note: After you click the link, you have to find his name on the website)

Alright, I’m gonna admit it. I have a man crush on Laidback Luke. Ever since seeing his set at Electric Zoo, I can’t stop listening to any of his tracks or recorded sets. But I know for a fact that I’m not alone. This guy is an genius when it comes to working the CDJ’s and the crowd. His hard hitting style and heavy Dutch sounds make any crowd go nuts, and his ability to combine some of the most different genres of music into a set is top notch. If you don’t believe me, check it out for yourself. Better yet, come check him out live at Pacha NYC on January 8th.

4. Subliminal Sessions Podcast by Erick Morillo


Erick Morillo truly is one of the rare DJ-producers who can defy trendiness and stay at the top of their game – continuously booking gigs, producing hits, and maintaining their own unique sound and style. Known for his signature sexy, full-bodied house music, Morillo’s podcast will introduce you to tracks that you probably won’t hear on the mainstage. You’re more likely to hear a lot of the tracks from his podcast during the after-hours gigs at clubs. Make sure to download this Legend’s podcasts, which come out every month.

5. Pacha NYC Podcast

Lately, Pacha NYC has been booking some of the biggest DJ in the world. Recently celebrating their 5 year anniversary, Pacha NYC saw an onslaught of performances from renowned DJ’s, like Kaskade, Fedde Le Grande, Erick Morillo, Dirty South, and David Guetta. Along with killer performances, Pacha NYC’s podcasts are up to par, with recorded sets by more than 10 Top-100 DJ’s that last for roughly an hour. Although they’re all great, make sure you check out Chuckie’s and Avicii’s sets. They’re absolute fire.

Honorable Mention:

Eddie Thoneick: The Acid House


Signed to Erick Morillo’s Subliminal Records, Eddie Thoneick is most known for the dance floor killer, “Live Your Life”, with Erick Morillo and Shawnee Taylor. His Acid House podcast delivers a style that takes a bit of getting used to. But if you listen to it more than once, you’ll love it. On a side note, he’s a dentist by day, and DJ by night. You have to respect that!
