Kaskade and ZHU have created a chill house vibe with acoustic guitar chords that complement ZHU's voice.

15. "CHOO GOTS" - Ya Boy Big Choo: Bounce music remains a genre unique to New Orleans and can adequately be defined as 'booty-shaking' music. Ya Boy Big Choo really knows how to make a crowd bounce, and with this track he wants to see what 'choo gots"!
16. "I Can't Stop" (Ekali Tribute) - Flux Pavilion: "I Can't Stop" is one of the most iconic and easily recognizable songs in all of electronic music. Ekali uses trip-hop, future bass, and even acoustic piano to give this dubstep track a fresh sound.
