Like it or not, just about every cool new song you’ll find on YouTube these days can be traced to one source: Majestic Casual (otherwise known as Majestic). For just over a year now, Majestic’s German creator has been uploading videos from the “ғɪɴᴇsᴛ ɪɴ ɢᴀʀᴀɢᴇ, ʜᴏᴜsᴇ, ʜɪᴘʜᴏᴘ [and] ᴇʟᴇᴄᴛʀᴏɴɪᴄ.” On top of this, he’s also launched a network for both dubstep and drum n’ bass listeners. But while both of these channels have spawned their own devout followings, Majestic Casual remains the flagship channel, garnering the most attention and quickly creating a thriving community of eager listeners.

Each week, between two and three videos are uploaded to the channel, pairing cooler-than-cool remixes and originals with vibrant, and often times, beautiful photographs. By doing so, Majestic has done what very few before them have managed: they’ve appealed to our two most important senses—sight and sound. So, what better way to pay homage to this hardworking aesthete than to curate a list of his 30 best videos? Because let’s be honest, 10 videos just doesn’t seem to cut it!
