WEEKLY TOP ELECTRONIC CHARTS: OCTOBER 2011, VOL. 24

27 Oct

1. ERIC PRYDZ, DIGITALISM “CIRCLES” [ERIC PRYDZ REMIX] (Pryda Friends)

Release Date: 2011-10-24

Classic Eric Prydz! Not only is Digitalism a talent Prydz discovered, but he remixed it over his own talent to make it a for sure top 5 in the next couple weeks. The beat just keeps building and building, very similar in style to Prdyz’ other hit Pjanoo. The beat is fascinating, and the minor bit of vocals gets the job done.

2. COLDPLAY “PARADISE” [FEDDE LE GRAND REMIX] (Toolroom Records)

Release Date: 2011-10-17

Coldplay stays in the top 5 for a second week in a row. It is fascinating to see the impact that the two Toolroom Record studs, Mark Knight & Fedde Le Grand have done to the industry in 2011. They have brought this label back to life and made it a serious contender for being a top 5 electronic label right up there with the likes of Armada, Ultra and Anjunabeats.

3. STONEFACE & TERMINAL “LEAVING EARTH” [ORIGINAL MIX] (Euphonic)

Release Date: 2011-10-09

The German duo of Stoneface & Terminal crush the trance scene with this hit. They make a huge name for themselves now, as they try to get exposure from Kyau & Albert’s Euphonic record label. It has a unique blend of trance, progressive house, with a slight mix of electro house. This is a very catchy track, that definitely deserves this high ranking.

4. TRITONAL, CRISTINA SOTO “STILL WITH ME” [CLUB MIX] (Air Up There Recordings)

Release Date: 2011-10-10

The Dallas duo stay at #4 this final week of October. The track is now currently ranked #1 on the Beatport trance charts. This is an example of an amazing blend of vocals, mixed with masterful synths to match up in style right with the likes of Above & Beyond.

5. JOEY NEGRO, ALEX KENJI ”FEEL IT” [ALEX KENJI REMIX] (Z Records)

Release Date: 2011-10-17

Pure house written all over this monster! Unbelievable concoction of house beat with soulful Nu-Disco. It almost makes me feel like I’m at Studio 54, but in 2012 and not 1978. Great song by Negro, with Kenji who is making a name for himself with all of his recent remixes.

WEEKLY TOP ELECTRONIC CHARTS: OCTOBER 2011, VOL. 23

27 Oct

1. COLDPLAY “PARADISE” [FEDDE LE GRAND REMIX] (Toolroom Records)

Release Date: 2011-10-17

Yes, guess what? Coldplay actually made #1 on my countdown this week. We can mainly thank Fedde Le Grand however for why this song is even on the list. It is a nice collabo, and fairly similar sounding and reminiscent of “Save The World” by Swedish House Mafia. This is a huge hit, that will surely dominate the radio waves.

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

Release Date: 2011-10-03

Spencer & Hill and Nadia Ali stay high up on the list for another week. Top vocalist of the year, without a doubt, goes to Nadia Ali. She has single handedly established herself as the voice of EDM. It is only a matter of time before we will probably unfortunately hear her on a pop track with someone like Timbaland or 3OH!3. Regardless, this song is a great combo of progressive house and a little bit of wobble from dubstep.

3. DIRTY SOUTH, THOSE USUAL SUSPECTS, ERIK HECHT “WALKING ALONE” [ORIGINAL MIX] (Phazing)

Release Date: 2011-10-19

Dirty South strikes again with the assistance of Those Usual Suspects from Australia. I’ve never heard of Erik Hecht, but he does a unique vocal layover, that blends perfectly with this progressive house bomb. There is definitely a lot of short and snappy synths on this track, with help make it very upbeat. A unique track at that, which is definitely worthy of this spot.

4. TRITONAL, CRISTINA SOTO “STILL WITH ME” [CLUB MIX] (Air Up There Recordings)

Release Date: 2011-10-10

First off, I’d like to say that I cannot believe the trance duo Tritonal is from the US! Absolutely unheard of in the trance scene. Fantastic track done with the assistance of Cristina Soto. This is under trance, but if anything, it give me a very airy progressive house feel. Tritonal reminds me of a poor man’s Above & Beyond.

5. BT, ADAM K ”TOMAHAWK” [ORIGINAL MIX EDIT] (Armada Music)

Release Date: 2011-09-30

BT…you are ridiculous! This is a great track that fuses hardcore dub step with electro house. Eerily in style to that of Mord Fustang’s “Lick The Rainbow”. If you haven’t had a chance, check out BT’s Laptop Symphony on Sirius XM. A great show, with great commentary. What can I say, I wouldn’t expect anything less from BT; I mean the guy is literally a certified genius.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
