WEEKLY TOP ELECTRONIC CHARTS: JANUARY 2013, VOL. 86: BOOTLEG/MASHUP SPECIAL

10 Jan

It’s a new year, so it we take a second to step back and take a look at trends occurring in EDM! We take a special look at Bootlegs and Mashups this week. Bootlegs and Mashups are becoming more common frequency-wise and they are now a staple of most DJ sets. EDM Charts takes a look at the top #5 Bootlegs and Mashups over the past 6 months. We also welcome in special guest DJ Viper Huxley for this week’s guest mix.

1. HARD ROCK SOFA VS DIRTY SOUTH VS JULIAN JORDAN & SANDER VAN DOORN “HERE GOES THE KANGAROO WALKING ALONE” [MICHAEL SCOTT BOOTLEG]edmcharts_julianjordan

Rating: ★★★★★

Genre: Progressive House

Origin: UK, USA

Description: In EDM Charts opinion this is the most epic and gnarly mashup/bootleg of the past six months. It Takes “Here We Go”, “Walking Alone” and “Kangaroo” and jam packs it all into one hell of a package. Hard Rock Sofa and Julian Jordan & Sander van Doorn take care of the heavy pounding beats. “Walking Alone” ads some nice vocals and a bit more of a progressive house edge. Michael Scott does a brilliant job finding the right fit for this jigsaw puzzle of a mix.

2. DASH BERLIN VS COLDPLAY “TICKING CLOCKS” [DASH BERLIN’S ESSENTIAL ‘WARMPLAY’ REWORK]edmcharts_dashberlin

Rating: ★★★★

Genre: Electronica

Origin: UK, Holland

Description: This rework by Dash Berlin showcases his take on one of the world’s most popular bands Coldplay and their enormous hit “Clocks”. It is a trancy take on piano, vocals and flow. It was featured on BBC’s Radio 1 Essential Mix with Pete Tong. That’s about as a large of a commercial audience you get to drop a massive rework.

CLASSIC COLLABORATION: CRYSTAL METHOD “TRIP LIKE I DO” [ORIGINAL MIX] (OUTPOST RECORDS) Release Date: 1997-9-8edmcharts_crystalmethod

Rating: ★★★★★

Genre: House

Origin: USA

Description: Well it simply just doesn’t get much more classic than a 1997 EDM song. This week’s classic track comes to us from Crystal Method. It’s a very memorable track for the genre and a landmark for EDM in the US. It goes back to the age of organic electronic sound. Sample packs didn’t exist and everything that was developed was fairly genuine.

3. PRYDA VS TEMPER TRAP “MIGHTY LOVE VS SWEET DISPOSITION” [LENNO BOOTLEG] edmcharts_pryda

Rating: ★★★★

Genre: Trance

Origin: Sweden, UK

Description: Eric Prydz AKA Pryda gets mashed up with Australian Pop band Temper Trap thanks to DJ Lenno. It has good feel vibe to it that was common back in the early 2000s with much of the progressive house genre. The instrumental of Prydz’ “Mightly Love” is a perfect match with Temper Trap’s vocals.

4. TOM FALL VS NARI & MILANI, NICK TERRANOVA, OASIS “WONDER ROCK” [TRISTAN GARNER BOOTLEG]edmcharts_tomfall

Rating: ★★★

Genre: Progressive House

Origin: UK, Italy, USA

Description: Is there a more classic alternative feel-good song that “Wonderwall” from Oasis? This memorable chorus is integrated in to a mashup with “Atom” from Nari & Milani as well as “iRoK” from Tom Fall. Tristan Garner somehow sews this all together to come up with a rollercoaster of a mashup.

5. ELLIE GOULDING “LIGHTS” [FEENIXPAWL BOOTLEG]

Rating: ★★★

Genre: Progressive House

Origin: UK, Australia

Description: The remix from Bassnectar has already garnered enough commercial attention. However, this bootleg, from Australian DJ duo Feenixpawl give the track a more proggy edge. Additional trance sounding synths are added on for a more dramatic feel.
