As February 2014 has taken its course, it’s now time to review the best of the past month. With a great mixture of genres, including a monumental mark for Above & Beyond, EDM fans were treated to a month of new sounds and diversity.
Highlighting this month’s folio is the Hungarian duo of Myon & Shane 54. Known for their harmonious and upbeat productions and remixes, these two always put the listener in a great mood. Enjoy this folio of their best material, pieced together seamlessly by guest DJ Viper Huxley.
For the third week of countdowns we highlight trance. 2013 highlighted a return to the classic genre and even faster BPMs. On the special guest mix this week is Viper Huxley.
As we enter our second week of countdowns, we are now upon Progressive House. This year featured some new faces as well as legends. Bringing the tracks to life on the special guest mix is Royski.
To kick off the year end countdown we examine the top Deep House tracks of 2013. What a year for a genre that melded classic tunes with vibing beats. These tracks are placed into action with a guest mix from DJ Slim Tim.
Due to popular demand EDM Charts is keeping up on the folios of top artists. This week we highlight Dutch legend Ferry Corsten. Live vicariously through his career via “Punk” all the way through “Blacklight”.
On this special edition of EDM Charts, we take in some of the best trance on the planet from Ireland’s own John O’Callaghan. If you’re afraid of the 138, now’s the time to get over it and listen to some JOC.
As we hit the midpoint of summer, the tracks are really heating up! Nicky Romero & Krewella leave a lasting impression with “Legacy”. Boom Jinx shows us some love from Anjunabeats. Cosmic Gate ”crush” it with some banging trance.
Genre: PROGRESSIVE HOUSE
Origin: HOLLAND, USA
Description: Well couldn’t necessarily say we say this collaboration coming, but it sure worked out well between Nicky Romero and the trio of Krewella. This is easily a top 10 release of 2013 thus far. The beat is infectious with combinations of heavy builds and the patented dirty Romero synths we are used to hearing. The added elements of vocals from Krewella really bring the song “alive”. Let’s hope they do another collaboration, if this is any sign of what they can achieve together.

EDM Charts fans, sorry for the break, but summer has been crazy with travel, weddings, etc! Tristan Garner drops an electro bomb with “Molotov”. Fon.Leman give us a peaceful trip into “One Day”. Orjan Nilsen gets spicy with “Xiing”.
Genre: ELECTRO HOUSE
Description: Tristan Garner takes over the #1 spot for the first time on EDM Charts this week with “Molotov”. This electro house banger is dark, grimy and very hard rock. It reminds us of Rob Zombie being up on the decks. The bass is pounding and searing all at the same time. Garner has been on a bit of streak of late, leaning more towards the darker edge of electro house. We can’t argue though, as this gets you going.

A hot june equals hot music! This week EDM Charts purveys the hottest deep house releases of 2013 thus far. Erkka “excommunicates” what is standard in the industry. Climbers are anything but “frozen” with their blazing new single. Lars Vegas shows us what the “game” is all about.
Genre: DEEP HOUSE
Description: Erkka tops the chart as the #1 deep house hit of 2013 thus far with a futuristic vibing track under the famed Anjunadeep label. This track has a little bit of everything. A snazzy vocal chopped over a deep soulful instrumental highlights what deep house is truly meant to be. This Finnish producer is fairly new to the scene, but if this is any precedent on what to expect, fans should really keep their ears tuned in.
