3 Jan

Happy 2013 to you! Avicii & Nicky Romero welcome in the new year with a massive new single that could be “The One”. Arty “sees” that he has the right thing growing on. Gabriel & Dresden brings us “back” to some classic progressive house.

1. NICKY ROMERO, AVICII “I COULD BE THE ONE” [ORIGINAL MIX] (LE7ELS) Release Date: 2012-12-29edmcharts_romero_avicii

Rating: ★★★★★

Genre: Progressive House

Origin: Holland, Sweden

Description: This recent release was one of the longest awaited. Having premiered at Ultra Music Festival 2012 in Miami, Nicky Romero and Avicii put there minds together to make a phenomenal hit. The added vocals are great and make the track a little bit more pop friendly. The beat is pumping and contains elements of both progressive and electro house. These two young DJs are young leaders in the industry and keep on pushing it forward.

2. ARTY “WHEN I SEE YOU” [ALESSO MIX] (REFUNE RECORDS) Release Date: 2012-12-21edmcharts_arty_alesso

Rating: ★★★★

Genre: Progressive House

Origin: Russia

Description: It’s Arty again and where do we start. This time his single is remixed by Swedish genius Alesso. This track is brilliantly orchestrated and very smooth. It has somewhat of a piano laddened riff that captures an emotional element of “wanting”. Arty is doing big things at such a young age. If you like what you hear, make sure to catch his radio show “Together We Are” on SiriusXM.

CLASSIC COLLABORATION: OCEANLAB, ABOVE & BEYOND “SECRET” [ANDREW BAYER REMIX] (ULTRA) Release Date: 2009-6-9

Rating: ★★★★★

Genre: Progressive House

Origin: UK

Description: OceanLab, the side project of UK producers Above & Beyond, is based on heavenly flows and gorgeous vocals. “Secret” is one of their best productions, and most specifically the remix by fellow labelmate Andrew Bayer. The remix features grinded out synths and a heavy bassline from the original. The effects added to the vocals add chopped and auto tune like effects. This is easily one of the best productions from Anjunabeats.

3. GABRIEL & DRESDEN, BETSIE LARKIN “PLAY IT BACK” [MAOR LEVI REMIX] (ORGANIZED NATURE) Release Date: 2012-12-24edmcharts_playitback_g&b

Rating: ★★★★

Genre: Trance

Origin: USA

Description: Another remix makes the countdown this week. This time Israeli DJ Maor Levi pulls off some progressive house magic with his own version of “Play It Back”. It is important to pay special attention to the vocals provided by Betsie Larking, one of the best EDM vocalists. It talks about a love story and keeping secrets. There’s additional bass and hardened synths that add to the experience. Levi has proven that he is one of EDM’s best remixers currently.

5. NIGEL GOOD “COME HOME” [BLAKE JARRELL REMIX] (NUEVA DIGITAL) Release Date: 2012-12-18edmcharts_nigelgood

Rating: ★★★

Genre: Progressive House

Description: Nigel Good, who is somewhat of a new name to the EDM genre, release a great new trance single remixed by Blake Jarrell. With minimal vocals and a great piano riff, it is rather reminiscent of some recent Anjunabeats productions. It too has garnered good attention, such as Arty’s “Together We Are” radio show. Keep an eye out for this up and coming Canadian DJ.
