20 Apr

edmcharts_au5_GUESTMIX

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”.

1. ONEREPUBLIC, ALESSO “IF I LOSE MYSELF” [ALESSO VS ONEREPUBLIC EXTENDED MIX] (MOSLEY MUSIC/INTERSCOPE RECORDS) Release Date: 2013-4-2edmcharts_alesso

Rating: ★★★★

Genre: PROGRESSIVE HOUSE

Origin: SWEDISH/USA

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.

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.

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.

Rating: ★★★★★

Description: It’s hard to think of a higher anticipated track of 2012 from other than the biggest EDM group on the planet in Swedish House Mafia. This track not only garnered the attention of EDM fans, but it also caught the eyes of Absolut Vodka, as it became part of their huge marketing campaign. This song is pure genius and showcases the groups diverseness.

WEEKLY TOP ELECTRONIC CHARTS: NOVEMBER 2011, VOL. 27

16 Nov

1. JOHN DÄHLBACK, ERIK HASSLE “ONE LAST RIDE” [TOMMY TRASH REMIX] (Mutants)

Release Date: 2011-10-11

The Swedish take over continues (even the vocalist Hassle is from Katrineholdm, Sweden). Dählback smashes this one out of the ballpark. This remix is an insanely ridiculous energetic track considering how vocal heavy it is. I recently heard this debut on Sander van Doorn’s “Identity” podcast. I love how the plucking beat blends with the rapid twisting of “dubsteppish” tones, that essentially represent an electric guitar on steroids. This track will easily work in the club and/or festival.

2. AFROJACK “LIONHEART” [ORIGINAL MIX] (WALL RECORDINGS)

Release Date: 2011-11-07

Afrojack stays put at #2 on this week’s countdown. Talk about some massive basslines! What we have here is what represent modern day electro house. This track is punch in style and dirty dutch to the core. One suggestion: Don’t find yourself in a mosh pit with this one.

3. GARETH EMERY, MARK FRISCH “INTO THE LIGHT” [BENJAMIN BATES REMIX] (GARUDA)

Release Date: 2011-11-14

This is an unbelievable remix off the “Northern Lights” album. I’ve personally never come across Benjamin Bates; but I can say he has blown me away with his obvious skill. This remix should garner widespread appeal as it has taken a trance track and added elements to make it a progressive house track. The portion of the track with the church organ is great, as it gives great focus to the inner soul of the song. This has festival written all over it. Emery yet again proves why he’s a top 20 DJ.

4. ALESSO “RAISE YOUR HEAD” [ORIGINAL MIX] (REFUNE RECORDS)

Release Date: 2011-11-16

Alesso is killing it in 2011! If it wasn’t for Avicii, Alesso would be the top newcomer of the year (for progressive house; Arty for trance). This track is actually shockingly a bit more on the dark side, with an element of evil to it. It works great, mixed with huge bass hits, and an electronic loop to kill for. Like I predicted last Spring, Alesso is here to stay and will be a top 30 DJ before you know it.

5. CHRIS LAKE ”SUNDOWN” [ORIGINAL MIX] (ULTRA)

Release Date: 2011-11-15

Featured recently as Pete Tong’s Essential Tune, “Sundown” is a stellar vocal progressive house track. A great beat mixed with some nice guitar. This is definitely a change up in style for Lake, as he often times nearly resembles deadmau5’s deep tracks. This track is similar in style to modern day Morgan Page. Great hit that you need to download.
