Dear TasteMakers,

As the weather gets a little warmer, we’re approaching peak EDM and Hip hop festival season in Korea and all around the world.

That’s why today we’ll be diving headfirst into the world of EDM with Alan Walker. In addition to his hauntingly-catchy hits, Walker is probably also well-known for his trademark mask he wears in hopes that his audience will focus solely on his music rather than himself.

Come along with us as we explore our Top 3 Alan Walker songs.

1. On My Way

Alan Walker x Sabrina Carpenter x FaRruko

Any PUBG players here?

Then, I’m pretty sure you’re familiar with this tune as it serves as PUBG’s one-year anniversary theme song. Featuring American singer, Sabrina Carpenter, and Puerto Rican singer, Farruko, “On My Way,” always gets me pumped up for battle and ready to bring home some winner, winner chicken dinner!

2. FADED

No Alan Walker post would be complete without “Faded”, the hit single that thrusted an 18-year-old Alan Walker into the spotlight back in 2015.

Walker came from humble beginnings; he didn’t receive any professional producing or songwriting training but rather, taught himself by watching YouTube tutorials and receiving feedback from groups on Facebook and Reddit.

Unlike its name, almost five years after its release, “Faded” is still bringing in shining accolades: with more than 2.2 billion YouTube views and 15 million likes, it is one of YouTube’s top 20 most liked videos of all time. “Faded” also boasts more than 780 million Spotify plays, and received the 2015 Spellemann Award for Hit of the Year (*Spellemannprisen is also known as the Norwegian Grammy Awards).

3. Lily

 K-391 & Emelie Hollow

Three steps to enjoy “Lily”: 1) Close your eyes, 2) Appreciate Emelie Holow’s hauntingly beautiful voice interweaving with Alan Walker’s entrancing electronic synth melody, and 3) Be taken to a different metaphysical realm.

Honorable Mentions:

4. Are You Lonely (feat. ISÁK)

Steve Aoki & Alan Walker

5. All Falls Down (feat. Noah Cyrus with Digital Farm Animals)

Make Alan Walker now and get ready to dance those warm summer nights away!
