WEEKLY TOP ELECTRONIC CHARTS: APRIL 2012, VOL. 47

11 Apr

The latest releases this week just make you feel like it is already summer! Martin Solveig is a one man band, telling us to all spend “The Night Out”. Cedric Gervais plays some political satire with “Molly”.  Tiësto & Wolfgang Gartner  release a huge banger with “We Own The Night” to help preview Club Life Volume Two: Miami.

1. MARTIN SOLVEIG “THE NIGHT OUT’” [A-TRAK VS MARTIN REWORK] (BIG BEAT RECORDS)

Release Date: 2012-04-03

Following the success of his unbelievable set at Ultra Fest in Miami, where Solveig debuted the original mix of his new hit single “The Night Out”, the new rework of this song is out of this world. Hooking up with fellow DJ/producer A-Trak, the groove filled track will get any EDM fan on their feet and buzzin’.

The track is heavily made up of a smooth guitar riff, layered with some nu-disco sounds. What is truly amazing, is that Solveig not only lays down the beat, but he does his own vocals! The rework with A-Trak seems to be quicker paced and more dodgy.

This isn’t Solveig’s first rodeo at being at the top. Just about a year ago to date, everyone was talking about his first gigantic hit “Hello”. It’s also good to see A-Trak getting some exposure, as he’s starting to get known for his Sirius/XM show “Fool’s Gold”. Don’t be shocked, as this track will surely keep on rising the charts.

2. CEDRIC GERVAIS “MOLLY” [ORIGINAL MIX] (SPINNIN RECORDS)

Release Date: 2012-04-09

Talk about pushing the limits, with some satire. French DJ Cedric Gervais does just so, after recent comments from Madonna over her comments on the leisure drug “Molly” at Ultra Fest. In regards to the actual music, the song is killer. It has the classic “Acid 303” feel to it, mixed in to a sultry vibe and an even sexier music video.

The track is quick paced and has the old school electro house synths. The computer generated female voice in the interlude is great, and once again pushes the satire; “She Makes Me Want To Dance”. It is hard hitting, and is bound to be one of the top tracks throughout the summer.

This is Gervais’ biggest hit to date. “Love Is The Answer” was a big track as well, but this is on an entirely different level, given the quality of the track and the implications behind it. Well done Cedric (a ballsy effort at the very least)!

3. TIËSTO, LUCIANA, WOLFGANG GARTNER “WE OWN THE NIGHT” [ORIGINAL MIX] (MUSICAL FREEDOM)

Release Date: 2012-04-06

What a teaser track off Tiesto’s new upcoming album “Club Life Volume Two: Miami”. “We Own The Night” is not only a huge collaboration of talents (Tiesto, Wolfgang Gartner and Luciana) but it also has a different feel to it than recently released electro house. It is out of the box yet sexy at the same time.

You can definitely tell Gartner was heavily involved on the track, to the point where the tech-house comes out with the unique and quirky electro synths. Luciana lays down her classic vocal style, with in your face, nitty-gritty force. The track meshes together well, more than likely due to Tiesto’s master production skills.

Club Life Volume Two Miami appears to be an epic upcoming release. Again, this is only one preview, and it’s huge. On a separate side note, it is interesting to watch Gartner continue to grow as an artist. His infectious style is getting taken not of by even the most legendary in the business.

4. MORGAN PAGE, NADIA ALI “CARRY ME” [EXTENDED MIX] (NETTWERK)

Release Date: 2011-04-03

“Alright” is an absolute classic Mark Knight track. It accentuates the basic features of modern house. Combine housey synths, sexy vocals and some saxophone; you now have the makeup of a perfect pure house track.

This track is a actually a slight shift from Knight’s recent production. Obviously he has gone back to his roots in house, hence showing off his ability to do anything from borderline trance/progressive house back to funk-ladened magic. This track is consistent, constant and classic.

Knight has truly brought Toolroom Records to the next level this past year. Between his own productions and leadership, there’s no wonder why he’s a top DJ. Buy this track if you’re looking for some classic house.

5. NARI & MILANI “ATOM” [ORIGINAL MIX] (SIZE RECORDS)

Release Date: 2011-04-09

Nari & Milani release a large electro house tune in “Atom” under Steve Angello’s Size Records. The Italian duo bring it in big ways by combining high powered energized synths and some big bass. While they’re fairly new to the EDM scene, this is quite a debut to the limelight. Oh, and did we mention this has been dropped during Swedish House Mafia sets?

The track has many layers and elements. It is dramatic, has great builds, then comes to conclusion with pulsing beats. When the chorus hits, it is hard to describe the noise, but it sounds like wood smashing a subwoofer.

Look for Nari & Milani to continue to keep making noise in the electro house genre. They’re under the right label for support and promotion. This is only a start; and a great one at that.
