too pop for Edm, too edm for pop
Teddy Beats is pioneering the chill dance genre: too pop for EDM and too EDM for pop. This lands his signature sound somewhere right in the middle, creating a chilled out dance song that has a little something for both dance and pop fans. Influenced by his time producing under the legendary hip hop producer Chucky Thompson and the organic instrumentation and melodies found in tropical house, Teddy Beats has created a fresh, new genre of music with a little something for everyone- the perfect soundtrack for a daytime chill sesh with friends to partying all night.
Welcome to Chill Dance.
