For the final week of May, EDM fans get to take in all sorts of genres in the Top #5. Orjan Nilsen lays down some viking thunder in “Endymion”. “Watch Out!” for Dutch DJ Radion6 on his latest release. Moguai cranks “Out” some great new electro house.
1. ORJAN NILSEN “ENDYMION’” [ORIGINAL MIX] (ARMIND)
The young Norway viking strikes again, this time with “Endymion”. In case you were wondering about the title, it references a Greek hunter and kings who was said to have ruled Olympia. Back to EDM: the song itself is classic Nilsen, which is thunderous trance harmonious to the ear.
This synths utilized on the track are room filling and full of depth. Transitions through breaks are smooth and seamless. It is even somewhat reminiscent of AvB’s productions, where big room sound is relied upon to get the message across.
There is little doubt that this track won’t be part of the next large ASOT festival. Nilsen is truly and up and coming trance artists. He has found his niche, bringing fans quick-paced, hard pounding trance.

2. RADION6 “WATCH OUT!” [ORIGINAL MIX] (RESET RECORDS)
Dutch DJ/producer Radion6 makes it to #2 this week with his latest progressive house release “Watch Out!” While a fairly new name to EDM under Reset AKA Spinnin Records, this latest track is rather impressive, reflecting various styles of Dutch produced music.
The vibe around the track is energizing. The production itself is rather reminiscent of labelmate Sander van Doorn; with it being somewhat similar in style to van Doorn’s single “Chasin’”. Overall, the new single is a great production and is rather complex in production style.
Radion6 is an excellent addition to Spinnin Records; the label itself is easily in the top #5 now given their procurement of artists. “Watch Out!” for Radion6 as he continues to make noise in progressive house.
CLASSIC COLLABORATION: PETE HELLER “BIG LOVE” [ORIGINAL MIX] (SUBLIMINAL RECORDS)
It doesn’t get older than 1999 for a classic track. This week EDM Charts features Pete Heller on his massive house hit “Big Love”. The track is clearly alive, as it can even be hear in Express clothing stores in the US to date!
“Big Love” has a magical go-lucky feel to it. It something that any DJ can still drop in a club, and it will surely get people up on their feet and feeling good. UK DJ Pete Heller did it right with this one, relying on house fundamentals and a funky vocal to capture the crowds and DJs alike.
Well Heller may not be as widely known as he once was, that is not too say that he didn’t lay the roots for many house producers to date, implementing unique vocals and live instruments in productions.
3. MOGUAI “IN N’ OUT” [TOMMY TRASH MIX] (MAU5TRAP)
Looking for an electro house banger. Well, you’ve came across a big one here in Tommy Trash’s latest remix of Moguai’s “In N’ Out”. Full of electronic noises and grinded out synths, the track captures the energy of one of EDM’s quickest rising genres.
This track is a roller coaster ride of bending blends of noises and breaks. Trash adds his signature thumbprint to the track while Moguai adds his progressive house influence.
Moguai has been tearing it up recently, as this is a great follow up to his latest single “Lyme”. In addition he added on one of the hottest remixers in Trash. Moguai is a pro for a reason, because of his ability to pump out stellar productions like this.
4. STEVE ANGELLO, MAX VANGELI, AN21 “H8RS” [ORIGINAL MIX] (SIZE RECORDS)
Size Records is in the house this week at #4 with their latest release “H8RS”. Steve Angello of Swedish House Mafia verses of this week agains fellow artists Max Vangeli and AN21. It is classic Size Records sound; hard hitting and to the point.
The track has a little bit of everything; progressive house, electro house and even a slight hint at dubstep. It is quick paced and aggressive.
You really can’t go wrong with three artists like this on one production. Size Records really has raised their game up, largely in part to their latest tour. Keep an eye on this label and these artists.
5. MAOR LEVI “WON’T SAY NO” [ORIGINAL MIX] (ANJUNABEATS)
Guess what? Yes, Anjunabeats is in the top #5 once again. This time it is Israeli DJ Maor Levi with “Won’t Say No”. This proggy trance hit is angelic and captures plenty of emotions.
The vocals on the track are absolutely gorgeous. The piano surrounding the track are light, airy and are perfectly blended. When the break hits, it is powerful and excellently executed.
Maor Levi continues to pump out great productions; one after another. Anjunabeats is fortunate enough to have so many skilled artists under one label. It wouldn’t be shocking at all to see Maor climb up the DJMag Top #100 charts.
