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.

June is here and that officially marks the start of the summer in the northern hemisphere, sorry Aussies and South Americans! Paul Oakenfold gives us a “beautiful” take on the world. Alex M.O.R.P.H. and Jerome Isma-ae ”bang” it with a big track under Armin’s label. Alan Fitzpatrick takes us back to the “beginning” with some industrial techno beats.
Genre: PROGRESSIVE HOUSE
Description: Oakenfold is a legend who has been a dominant figure over the last 15 years if not more in the EDM scene. He has had commerical exposure with hits such as “Sex N Money” and “Faster Kill Pussycat” and has established his own label in Perfecto Records. His latest single “Beautiful World” is very much on the lighter side of sound, highlighting optimistic vocals and golden piano riff. Simply put; it is a feel good track that is harmonious from beginning to end. You really don’t slam together great productions like this without experience and a great production team.

Two more days until June as we wrap up 5 full weeks of music in May! W&W drop the boom with “Thunder”. Firebeatz provide EDM fans with a “Wonderful” listening experience. Arston shows us something in the stars with “Zodiac”.
Genre: PROGRESSIVE HOUSE
Description: There may not be a more rapidly rising DJ duo in trance/progressive house than W&W (Willem van Hanegem & Ward van der Harst). Under Mainstage Music (a sub label of Armada) W&W have done nothing but pump out massive hits such as Moscow, The Code, Lift Off and D# Fat. Like the title suggests, the track brings the boom in the form of bass. With carefully planned interludes so that the track can literally catch its breath, there is nothing but literal firepower behind this banger.
