Suns out, guns out! EDM fans get “caught” on Markus Schulz. “Here We Go” again with Hard Rock Sofa & Swanky Tunes. Get your tanning lotion of for the “Disco Sun” with Pascal & Pearce.
Miami resident and German export Markus Schulz tops this week’s charts at #1 with the Tritonal Remix of “Caught”. This is an amazing vocal trance track that is perfect for the club. The vocals are smoothly handled by Romanian Adina Butar. The track is smooth and not the typical harder Coldharbour style we are used to.
Tritonal do what they do best by recreating a track and making it light and airy. Butar’s vocals are a perfect blend, as they’re exotic and mellow. The build is great as it is rather teasing.
Schulz has been a machine the last countless years. He does a great job managing his label Coldharbour, while at the same time juggling a brilliant career both in the studio and on the road.

Hard Rock Sofa and Swanky Tunes collaborate together to hit the #2 spot on the countdown. If you’re looking for a track all jacked up on Mountain Dew, than this is the one for you (yes, I know, hideous rhyming). This Axtone Records release is electro house at its finest. A small amount of vocals, various synths and some bass.
Both Eastern Europe DJ duos lay the smack down on this track. What is interesting, considering this track is in the electro house realm, is it actually has a build. Unfortunately the track is rather hard to describe in text, so I suggest you get out there and buy it and see for yourself.
South Africa in the house! Yes, this is the first time this southern hemisphere country has hit the countdown. Pascal & Pearce hit the ground running at #3 with the Starkillers remix of “Disco Sun”. It’s a classic Spinnin Records track with some hard hitting electro and some dirty vocals.
This is a great example of a track that perfectly handles the interlude, large in part thanks to the vocals provided by Juliet Harding. When the drop hits, it full of bass and the classic Starkillers feel.
This is a somewhat undiscovered duo; but there’s no denying they have some great talent. Keep an eye out there for these guys as there will be more on the way.
Yet another electro house hits the countdown, this time with new DJ Hypster courtesy of Plasmapool Records. The Miles Dyson Remix of “Let The Beat Drop” is sick. You can just feel Plasmapool all over this one, with the constant flipping noise and electro elements.
This track is genuine and unique, as it has a funky house vibe to it courtesy of the soulful vocals done by Niqi. The track could be dropped in various sets, but is best suited for a house club.
Plasmapool is really making a name for itself as a respected label with the likes of Mord Fustang, Miles Dyson, Joe Garston and now Hypster. Get out of the way as they destroy the electro house scene.
We end this week’s countdown with an absolutely gorgeous track from Swiss producer Sean Tyas. You know if someone is releasing a single under Aly & Fila’s Future Sound of Egypt, that it is going to be trance and it will be brilliant.
The track really has it all to be honest. Vocals by Lo-Fi Sugar are of pure song bird quality. The instrumental is pure trance, quick pace, and just the right amount of bass. Let’s not forget that the lyrics are very well-written.
If you like Sean Tyas, make sure to check out his podcast “Tytanium Sessions” for some great trance and progressive. Oh, and don’t forget to get out there and purchase this track.
