Rating: ★★★★★

Genre: Trance

Origin: Australia

Description: Jaytech makes the #1 spot on EDM Charts for the second time in 2012. The remix of “Multiverse” in no other words is simply brilliant. Audien, the up and coming trance producer from the US does a great job manipulating the track and giving it silky smooth feel. If you had to define this track in one word it would be “uplifting”.

Reminds Us Of: “Synergy” – Jaytech

WEEKLY TOP ELECTRONIC CHARTS: JANUARY 2012, VOL. 34

11 Jan

As we march into the deep winter, electro house flexes its muscles as it starts to tighten up its vice grip on the EDM movement. The young prince of Germany, Zedd, tops the charts with some block rockin’ beats. Nicky Romero shows us he means business with some dirty dutch. Ummet Ozcan shows the world that trance is evolving like a “Cocoon”.

1. ZEDD “SLAM THE DOOR” [ORIGINAL MIX] (OWSLA)

Release Date: 2012-01-03

Zedd does a solo act this time with the release of his new electro house hit “Slam The Door”. That’s right, no Skrillex or Porter Robinson accompanying this track. The young German shows his innovation with this track by integrating humorous modulated vocals and fast paced beats.

Even though this track is thrown into the electro house genre, it is important to note that “Slam The Door” is much more complex. It significantly draws on elements of progressive house and dubstep.

It was only about a year ago that Zedd was in the process of dropping his massive single “Dovregubben” themed after the famous symphonic composition “In The Hall of the Mountain King” by Edvard Grieg. He is an artist to watch crawl up the DJMag charts in 2012.

2. NICKY ROMERO “TOULOUSE” [ORIGINAL MIX] (SPINNIN RECORDS)

Release Date: 2011-12-19

Young Dutch sensation Nicky Romero is having a phenomenal past 12 months. With huge hits like “Camorra” and “Beta” and a couple massive remixes with David Guetta, Romero is doing some serious work.

“Toulouse” is interesting; both in definition and style. First off, for those wondering, the term Toulouse is the name of a famed French painter. Maybe this is in correlation in style to the track. Romero integrates progressive build up with some massive drops.

Look out for Romero in 2012. Outside of his singles and remixes, Romero has been noted for outstanding live performances at places like Washington D.C.’s “Glow” and Denver’s “Beta”.

3. UMMET OZCAN “COCOON” [ORIGINAL MIX] (RESET RECORDS)

Release Date: 2012-01-02

Another Dutch DJ gets his name on this week’s charts. Ummet Ozcan shows us the evolution of trance with his newly released single “Cocoon”.

Originally making its debut on Armin van Buuren’s “A State of Trance”, this track has a lot to live up to. “Cocoon” possesses trance beginnings with smooth progressive house transitions.

Ozcan will keep making a name for himself. He’s surrounded by the right label and the right artists to continue to grow as a DJ.

4. JOE GARSTON “THE PROMISE” [ORIGINAL MIX] (PLASMAPOOL)

Release Date: 2011-01-02

Plasmapool hits the charts for another week, but this time with one its newer artists Joe Garston. At only 19, he can say that he has already hit the top 10 on Beatport with his rising single “The Promise”.

The vibe to the track is uplifting. Funky synths blend in with a melodic elements. The track still has that “Plasmapool” feel to it, as it truly is electro house based.

The track probably wont ever be a huge festival hit; however it deserves credit for uniqueness and going against the grain. At the very least, it is a slick production.

5. GENIX, MIKE KOGLIN “DYNO” [ORIGINAL MIX] (ANJUNABEATS)

Release Date: 2011-12-19

Guess what? Yes, Anjunabeats just released another huge single with Genix and Mike Koglin. There seems to be no stop with this music label, fueled by prodigious talent and keen attention to detail.

This track, interestingly enough, was produced together by both artists, however they apparently never were in the same room together. This is impressive considering the fact this trance track relies heavily on melody to help make it flow.

Having already been featured on “Trance Around the World” with Above & Beyond, there is no denying its legitimacy. This is a must have track for EDM fans.

1. DEADMAU5 “AURAL PSYNAPSE” [ORIGINAL MIX] (mau5trap)

Release Date: Not released yet on Beatport

I have to admit, I wanted to post this track up earlier on my blog, but opted to wait until it officially was released on Beatport. I couldn’t wait any longer, so here we are, after hearing it on Above & Beyond’s Trance Around The World #398. Interestingly enough, it is a rework of a track he did sometime between 1998-2000. Amazing attention to detail and smooth flow define this progressive house track.

2. MICHAEL CALFAN “RESURRECTION” [AXWELL’S RECUT CLUB VERSION] (Axtone Records)

Release Date: 2011-11-21

Calfan’s “Resurrection” stays in the top #5. It is currently #1 on Beatport overall, which is astounding for a fairly new artist. It definitely doesn’t hurt that Axwell is responsible for about a third of the production. Good track with especially big drops for progressive house.

http://www.beatport.com/track/resurrection-axwells-recut-club-version/3079180

3. ABOVE & BEYOND “FORMULA ROSSA” [ORIGINAL MIX] (Anjunabeats)

Release Date: 2011-11-27

Above & Beyond move upwards on this week’s countdown. I can’t even start to explain the skill and technicality required to produce a track like this. There’s so much attention paid to detail with all of the elements involved in this multi-layered trance hit. This has engineering equivalent to deadmau5’s “Aural Psynapse”.

http://www.beatport.com/track/formula-rossa-original-mix/3098644

4. TIESTO, TRISTAN GARNER “TRAFFIC” [TRISTAN GARNER REMIX] (Magic Muzik)

Release Date: 2011-11-28

Yes, this is the remake of one of the all-time great trance tracks in Tiesto’s “Traffic”. Garner adds a nice signature touch to this hit. There’s enough of the original track in the remake to hold up the integrity of Tiesto.

5. ZEDD “STARS COME OUT” [ORIGINAL MIX] (Dim Mak Records)

Release Date: 2011-11-22

“Stars Come Out” stays in the top #5 for the second week in a row. It is crazy to think that Zedd only happens to be the ripe young age of 22, and he’s already achieved so much success. Great production and even better vocals selection can be attributed to this EDM hit.

WEEKLY TOP ELECTRONIC CHARTS: NOVEMBER 2011, VOL. 28

30 Nov

1. ZEDD “STARS COME OUT” [ORIGINAL MIX] (Dim Mak Records)

Release Date: 2011-11-22

The young German Zedd, at only the age of 22, has busted out a skillful new electro house hit. This marks his third huge single to come out in 2011 with the others being “Shave It” and “Dovregubben”. This great song is not only festival ready, but is set for play at the club. Heather Bright also does a great job on vocals; don’t be surprised if you hear hear name on even more EDM songs.

http://www.beatport.com/track/stars-come-out-original-mix/3099112

2. MICHAEL CALFAN “RESURRECTION” [AXWELL’S RECUT CLUB VERSION] (Axtone Records)

Release Date: 2011-11-21

All I have to say, is that this is one of the smoother tracks I’ve listened to. Axwell’s work can clearly be seen on the track, as he has smoothed over transitions and added some epic drops. We really haven’t heard much from Axwell recently, to be specific “Heart is King” this summer. It’s good to see some fresh new talent on the scene with Calfan.

http://www.beatport.com/track/resurrection-axwells-recut-club-version/3079180

3. TIESTO, STEVE AOKI “TORNADO” [ORIGINAL MIX] (Dim Mak Records)

Release Date: 2011-11-15

The more and more I listen to this collaboration by Tiesto and Aoki, the more I enjoy it. Initially I thought there was too much abruptness to the the track. However, after giving the track another week, I’m starting to follow the flow. This is a high energy track, that will keep any crowd energized. It is best suited for the festival setup however.

4. KYAU & ALBERT “ARE YOU FINE” [ARTY REMIX] (Euphonic)

Release Date: 2011-11-21

The German DJ duo Kyau & Albert release a massive single remixed by Arty (AKA Russian Wonderkid). Even though they’re not on the Anjunabeats label, it sounds close enough to me to make it count. Arty is able to add the big “house” feel to the single. The original mix sounds good, but this remix just sounds and feels better. This is a great track that was featured at Trance Around The World 400 in Lebanon.

http://www.beatport.com/track/are-you-fine-arty-remix/3100058

5. ABOVE & BEYOND “FORMULA ROSSA” [ORIGINAL MIX] (Anjunabeats)

Release Date: 2011-11-27

First off, in case you were wondering, Formula Rossa is actually the name of Ferrari’s rollercoaster in Ferrari Land in the United Arab Emirates. It is the world’s fastest roller coaster. The track is fashioned after that, being high energy that relies heavily on build ups, just like a rollercoaster. I’m sure this track will be in the top #5 on the Beatport trance charts before we know it. A&B just keep pushing out new material and style like no one else in the industry.

WEEKLY TOP ELECTRONIC CHARTS: OCTOBER 2011, VOL. 22

12 Oct

Gootnist’s Weekly Top House/Electronic Tunes: October 2011, Week 22

1. SPENCER & HILL, NADIA ALI “BELIEVE IT” [CLUB MIX] (Wall Recordings)

Release Date: 2011-10-03

The duo from Germany have come up with probably one of the best unknown hits of 2011. Nadia Ali once again comes through on this track with her mesmerizing voice. This is a dirty electro house track that is brought into perfect equilibrium with the vocals provided by Ali. It is good to see Spencer & Hill get great exposure on a track that doesn’t happen to be a remix, which is their typical forté.

http://www.beatport.com/track/believe-it-club-mix/2752149

2. GREGOR SALTO, CHUCKIE “WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS” [CLUB MIX] (Cr2 Records)

Release Date: 2011-09-05

Ok, I’m pretty sure everybody knows the Dirty Dutch sensation Chuckie for his remixes and hits. The true question is do you know Gregor Salto? Well if you haven’t it is ok, as he hasn’t blown up quite yet. Suprise, suprise…he’s another Dutch artist however. The song is very cool with the lead in with Vietnam-era style guitar followed up with minimalistic vocals. It truly is the perfect song for all the clubs in Vegas.

http://www.beatport.com/release/what-happens-in- vegas/650777

3. PROK & FITCH, JUAN KID “STAR GUITAR” [FESTIVAL MIX] (Toolroom Records)

Release Date: 2011-09-26

Star Guitar stays on the countdown for a second week in a row. Prok & Fitch have hit this remix of a classic out of the park. The upbeat track keeps you listening, while yet you’re intrigued by the electric guitar integration. Great track to start wrapping up 2011.

http://www.beatport.com/track/star-guitar-festival-mix/2734875

4. ZEDD “SHAVE IT” [ORIGINAL MIX] (OWSLA)

Release Date: 2011-10-04

Well, it appears on this countdown as if we’re having a contest between Germany and Holland. Zedd, hailing from Germany, makes this week’s list with some electro house. Recently signed under Skrillex’s new label, Zedd showcases his flexible style, integrating forms of house and dubstep. Great song, that has quickly risen up the charts.

http://www.beatport.com/release/shave-it/687507

5. ARTY, TANIA ZYGAR ”THE WALL” [ARTY REMODE MIX] (Enhanced Progressive)

Release Date: 2011-09-26

Arty, the Russian wonder kid, stays on the countdown for the second straight week. This as an absolute ridiculous remix of his own song. It’s a bit of a darker beat to be on top of the charts in trance right now, but it is unique. The track has a great integration of guitar in background. It is very continuous and catchy.
