As we hit the midstretch of summer, the music keeps on building! Digitialism and Tommy Trash “fall” forward with a #1 hit. Apster gives us “more” with a great new electro house track. We find out that a “proton” is an important element of life with a top trance track from Ronski Speed.
As we start of the countdown with the best song of the week, let’s run through the breakdown of this one. First off we have Digitalism, who’s most well known song “Circles” was a smash hit and also the theme song of Ultra Music Festival 2012. Secondly, we Tommy Trash, who has been absolutely been destroying the charts with his own hits and prodigious remixes. Based on simple math, this is obviously a “prime” hit.
The song has melancholy interludes mixed with high pounding electro glory. You get that continuous feel from Digitalism mixed in rather cleverly with Trash’s pounding synths. Club or festival, whenever a DJ drops this they’re sure to start a scene.
Watch out for this track, as it is going to start quickly rising up the charts. It’s hard to avoid when you have to stellar DJs on one song; just too much talent to avoid.

Newcomer Dutch DJ Apster definitely chose the right vocalist on his latest smash hit “I Need More”. Eva Simons has been all over the place the last few months capitalizing on her opening success with Afrojack on “Take Over Control”. The track has an awesome pop club feel, while at the same time maintaining integrity of the electro house side.
The track itself, is catchy and not too overwhelming. The bass hits hard, but the vocals hit even harder thanks to Simons magical voice. It is quick paced, and would surely start a riot on any dance floor. It has already received the stamp of approval from Hardwell on his weekly radio show.
This is another song that will also surely climb the charts, especially due to its pop vibe. Watch out for Apster, as this will be a great kick start to his career.
There’s no denying that Wolfgang Gartner is a beast in the electro house genre. If you ever get a chance make sure to catch this guy live, as he absolutely kills it! “Space Junk” is a recently new classic, but it has all the elements of being one.
The track is so unique it is difficult to put into words. It has small vocal sample, but the break is amazing. It is full of high energy and just simply has that perfect electro house feel.
Gartner is literally a man on a mission. He continues to pump out one hit after another. This track represents a landmark hit, as he continues to steamroll the genre.
If you’re looking for a track that is dramatic and has a very Catholic feel to it, than you’ve found the right one in “Proton 12”. German DJ Ronski Speed hits it big with the Cressida Remix. It is an example of new age trance that showcases high levels of production skills.
The haunting vocals add to the dramatic feel and carry the interlude. Once the build is done and the break hits, it flows like a plane headed east on a jet stream. The key board set of synths are a great blend that help pick up the pace before the bass hits.
Ronski Speed is an example of an under the radar producer that continuously keeps producing solid hits and remixes. You always know a song is legit, when it is on the track list of TATW with Above & Beyond.
We enter #4 this week with a great electro house track. Felix Leiter collaborates with vocal sensation Amanda Wilson on “Dancin Dancin”. EDM fans may recognize Wilson from her most well know featured track “Bromance”.
This specific remix featuring Dragon & Jontron is bent in the direction of electro house. Like previously mentioned, Wilson’s vocals help take the track to the next level. It is hard hitting, yet has enough pop feel to make it club friendly.
In what seemingly has been the summer of electro house, Leiter did an excellent job in getting various producers involved with this EP.
We end the coundown this week with a great house track. David Jones & Total Sound collaborate together to make some funky fresh sounding tunes. They add vocalist Devonne on the track to give it some soulful sounds.
The track is composed of some housey noises combined with some low hitting bass. There is a beautiful climbing interlude that includes the some beautiful singing from Devonne. It is the right blend of all elements, resulting in another friendly track for the club.
There’s no denying that David Jones is a beast in the studio. He is always producing something; whether it be his own song or a remix. This is a great track to top of the list this week.
