Hands up music is one of the most underrated genres of music. It includes some of the best dance producers and groups like Cascada, DJ Manian, Empyre One, DJ Gollum, Rob Mayth, and The Hitmen.

Hands up is a very niche genre and is much bigger over in Europe in countries like Germany, Poland, and Slovakia. I originally got hooked on it when Cascada’s “Everytime We Touch” was released back in 2006 (check out my interview with Natalie Horler on When Life Hands You Lennons). Since then, I’ve gone on to really love the genre and become fully immersed in it. This is the type of music that I produce myself. It’s simple, yet complex. It’s cheesy, yet incredibly melodic. It’s fun and strictly meant for you to, well, put your hands up.
