November has been a month filled with steady success specifically in the deep house and tech house arenas. This week we see all new names to the charts, spread out literally across the globe. Juliet Sikora and Chemical Surf top the charts with a club themed anthem. Dosem drops some techno knowledge off his new album City Cuts.
1. Juliet Sikora, Chemical Surf - What’s That (Original Mix) (Kitball)
Since releasing their Walking Back EP on Kittball, Brazilian duo Chemical Surf have demonstrated their indisputable work ethic in the studio with appearances on the likes of Miami Underground Records, Sprinkler, Lust Be and Erase Records. Collaborating with them is Juliet Sikora, Kittball co-founder and the heart and soul of the label. “Whats That” continues the theme of commanding low-ends, with a rumbling bass hook taking centre stage. This time the vocals have been left intact adding a sing along factor to a dancefloor commanding piece of four-to-the-flour house.
Genre: Tech House
We everyone is having a great start to the holiday season and welcoming in the month of November. The selection on this chart is heavy on the deep house. Anjunadeep has two great tracks from their artists Eli & Fur and Meramek. “Parachute” by Otto Knows, which has been tearing up the charts, makes its debut on EDM Charts thanks to a slick remix by CamelPhat. Don’t forget to subscribe to our SoundCloud to stay up to date with our weekly mixes of the charts, pieced together by resident DJ Royski.
1. Eli & Fur - Feel The Fire (Original Mix) (Anjunadeep)
Eli & Fur, aka Eli Noble and Jennifer Skillman, have been making a name for themselves on the London DJ circuit of late, and putting out a string of fresh and exciting singles, including “Seeing Is Believing”, their excellent collaboration with Shadow Child. “Feel The Fire” is a tougher, harder-edged take on their typically melodic sound, and works wonders with their ethereal vocals. A memorable moment from Anjunadeep 06, the energetic original mix has been a mainstay in James Grant and Jody Wisternoff’s DJ sets this year.
Genre: Deep House
Happy Halloween from EDM Charts! It’s always a great time to bust out the all-time classic Michael Jackson’s “Thriller”. This week is loaded with a mix of funk as well as some deeper vibes. City Soul Project strikes twice, both on stellar remixes. Arnold Jarvis and Danism hit the #1 spot with one of the best deep house productions of 2014.
1. Arnold Jarvis, Danism – Reciprocated Love (City Soul Project Remix) (Noir Music)
Danism makes their debut on Noir Music with the emotional Reciprocated Love featuring the vocals of legend Arnold Jarvis. You have to love the stringled and super smooth song from first listen. This is deep house like it sounded back in the day and in general just a timeless effort by the Cambridge based guys. City Soul Project delivers the remix which is spot on quality with a more clubby edge.
Genre: Deep House

We will strive to bring you the best music from the realms of deep house, tech and house; featuring non-commercial productions and exposing a bit more of the underground and traditional scene.
1. Felon “Isla” [Original Mix] (Ultra)
Very little is out on the web about Felon which is not ideal for the information seeker, but at the same time adds a surprise type aura. This group is made up of Archie Ward, George Renwick and James Levey. The sensual and sexy track made a nice impact being debuted on EDX’s No Xcuses. The track features progressive house builds layered out over female vocal snippits. Overall, and unexpected debut from Ultra; but pleasantly welcome!
