The super tandem of Justin Timberlake and Timbaland stole The Grammy’s Best Dance Recording Awards in both 2007 and 2008, beating out the competition of Justice, The Chemical Brothers, and Rihanna among others. When the stars reunited for March’s 20/20 Experience they delivered a uniquely reinvented brand of their Grammy-winning formula, and it is apparent that they are coming back for a dance-savvy encore. Justin has recently revealed the first single off the second half of 20/20, the aptly titled “Take Back The Night,” foreshadowing more dance-geared music and revealing exactly what he intends to accomplish when he releases his sequel on September 30th.Posted by

Editorial: Justin Timberlake and Timbaland restore dance-pop, dissolve crossover stigma with ‘The 20/20 Experience’
Before Skrillex ever won a single golden gramophone, before Will.I.Am took his new French friend into the studio with The Black Eyed Peas, there was Justin Timberlake. Timberlake has been the poster boy for American pop culture since the 90s, and claimed both pop and dance music for himself after his first solo album dropped in 2002. His second full-length effort, FutureSex/LoveSounds, exclusively produced by Timbaland, has sold over ten million copies worldwide and churned out two Grammy Awards, Best Dance Recording in 2006, and 2007 — ironically, the same award that Skrillex has taken home the past two years.
Justin returns to reclaim that spotlight seven years later, once again with Timbaland and their Grammy-winning formula, for the release of The 20/20 Experience. The Experience, both literally and figuratively, draws the bottom line for dance-pop with 70-minutes of unflawed, timeless material. Flawless by a matured Timbaland, who pulls out all the stops developed over the twenty years of his storied career, timeless as measured up to classics dating back to a time when pop and dance were analogous in the American psyche.
Nu-disco master Aeroplane offers his remix duties to Justin Timberlake’s new pop single “Suit & Tie.” The track oozes in feel-good grooves, using Timberlake’s delicate vocal over a rhythmic bassline that gives off a modern-day jazzy vibe. The track follows Dillion Francis‘ trap remake, and hints that a massive remix package is set to come. If you need an instant pick-me-up, turn up the volume knob on your speakers and give this a proper listen — it’s Aeroplane doing what he does best.
Dillon Francis has launched his Wurld Turr, traveling North America with Oliver and exclusive music. In the tour’s brief run, Francis has already premiered his remix of Justin Timberlake’s “Suit and Tie,” which, as confirmed via Twitter, has been accepted by Timberlake himself for an official release. Francis shakes the pop tune with his signature kicks of moombah and slaps of trap, and while Jay-Z’s verse is absent, JT’s vocals are distorted for the sake of Dillon’s stylings. Release date coming soon.
Julio Bashmore started the day with a pleasant little surprise on his Twitter feed — sharing with the world a free download of his remix of Justin Timberlake‘s comeback single “Suit & Tie” from his upcoming album. This one was geared towards the lovers on everyone’s favorite Hallmark holiday, but the track’s got staying power. Julio erases his flair for that Bashmore bassline in exchange for some wavering gospel chords, a funky drum loop, and punchy vintage rhythm. Cop the free download and listen to the track after the break.
The music world is abuzz today with the cryptic announcements from Justin Timberlake and famed producer Timbaland that the two are likely working on or have already finished a brand new full-length album together. JT and Timbaland’s homepages both redirect to the video above, a short narrative with the former ‘N SYNCer in which he proclaims that he is “ready.” At the end of the video, there’s a countdown–currently with about three days left on the clock. Some are speculating the announcement is a last minute forewarning of a quick release of a new album and JT has been quietly producing and writing music for some time already.
It’s no secret to anyone that Justin Timberlake’s four-time platinum 2006 album FutureSex/LoveSounds was a classic, but we’re pretty confident to say that it was also a critically-acclaimed American dance album before the “EDM” explosion stateside. We’re excited to see what this all means and even more excited if the developments in the world of synthetically produced sounds since his last album have further pushed Timbaland and Timberlake into our beloved umbrella genre.Posted by
It’s only been three years since David Guetta found Will.I.Am and made his way into American mainstream music, and roughly a year since Pitbull and Flo Rida started to swindle dance tracks for themselves, but the apparent ‘pop crossover’ dates back even earlier. Back in 2007, Justin Timberlake released the critically acclaimed Future Sex/LoveSounds, an album entirely produced by the hottest pop producer of its time, Timbaland. One of the lead tracks, “LoveStoned,” was released separately, as an EP packaged with remixes from Tiesto, Kaskade, and Justice.
While they hadn’t yet began their take over of commercial music, these top-tier dance music producers had found the outlet early. Tiesto’s progressive trace adaptation contains the same captivating euro sound from Elements of Life, which was released the very same year. Kaskade’s rendition offers a sense of old school house, dance music before electro took over — deep, ambient, and sexy.
