Description: As a preface to Armin van Buuren’s continued success, we feature one of his most emotional hits “Unforgiveable”. It features Jaren Cert (married to Matt Cerf) on vocals. The lyrics are very powerful and take the forefront. Armin showcases his flexibility to adjust his typical deep trance style to a more moderate tone, featuring even some electric guitar.
Description: Holland knows a thing or two about trance. Estiva is yet another potential trance superstar to come out of the land of tulips. “Smiley Smilesworth” highlights vocal chops and a classic piano arrangement. This track has been blowing up on air, as it has been featured both on Above & Beyond’s Group Therapy and Armin van Buuren’s A State of Trance.

Genre: Electro House
Description: Rawrberry is a new up and coming electro house artist coming out of Austria. His recent track garnered EDM Charts’ attention after catching it on Arty’s “Together We Are” radio show. It actually reminds us of artists coming off of the Plasmapool label, most notably Joe Garston and Mord Fustang. It has a funky vibe that goes hard on the electro sounds and sliders.

Genre: Tech House
Description: Our #5 track of the week takes us on a venture into the world of tech house. Wankelmut drops a unique track that features some stellar vocals from Australian vocalist Emma Louise. Wankelmut blew up this summer with his release of “Reckoning Song”. This most recent single is sublime and mellow track, that highlights acoustic guitar and simple snap. Watch out for this German, as he has found his niche in tech house.
