What a packed month of April for great music! Alesso and OneRepublic “lose” themselves in the music. Jungle Jim makes a great “animalistic” debut. Static Revenger lays down some solid house with “Bullet Train”.
Genre: PROGRESSIVE HOUSE
Description: Alesso has been one of the hottest names in EDM over the past 12 months. This remix of OneRepublic’s huge hit “If I Lose Myself” is a great emotional interpretation. It has a real big room sound, yet at the same time it rings deep thanks to some phenomenal vocals. Alesso is selling out everywhere he tours, so we don’t doubt that this will be another huge year.

Genre: ELECTRO HOUSE
Description: We welcome a newcomer to the weekly charts with Aussie Jungle Jim. His new electro house track “Black Wolf” is very animalistic. The track hits absurdly hard with some hardened bass complimented by an actual vocal of a howling wolf. The clever vocal chopping also adds to the the track, even giving it a very light trap feel. This track real stands out as something different from the electro house genre.
Reminds Us Of: “The Viking” – Will Sparks
Description: Static Revenger hops back into the charts, but this time with a house friendly remix thanks to Italian producer Tradelove. Miss Palmer adds a sexy vibe to the club friendly track with her basic yet charming vocals. The quick baseline and funky feel makes this track a sure fire play in any smaller space. Static Revenger has been doing it for years, and this is a great addition to his lengthy folio.
Reminds Us Of: “Vegas” – Static Revenger
Description: The one item that the EDM genre is truly missing is soul and funk fueled house hits. Many hits will soon be coming from upcoming releases by Daft Punk and Basement Jaxx, however this track is a nice fill in. French DJ/Producer welcomes the indie group The Spimes to add on some vocals to this funky house release. In addition, the backspin sound of scratching vinyl actually sounds legit on the track, giving it a slight hip hop element. This is definitely something fresh and different, and a pleasure to hear.
Reminds Us Of: “Lose Feeling” – Alan Braxe, Visitor
Description: We end the countdown with yet another great house track, “Jack”. Breach is actually an alias for Ben Westbeech, a well known UK producer. This track is much more minimal in nature with a steady soft bassline and spoken filtered vocals. The track title speaks for itself; get down when you get loose on the dancefloor. This is yet another great house track to come out in early 2013.
