WEEKLY TOP ELECTRONIC CHARTS: FEBRUARY 2013, VOL. 94

1 Mar

This week’s chart is full of Dutch domination! Above & Beyond keep their Group Therapy effort going with “Black Room Boy”. Armin van Buuren & W&W continue their expedition with “D# Fat”. John Dahlback show us some “life” with his latest progressive house smash hit.

1. ABOVE & BEYOND “BLACK ROOM BOY” [ORIGINAL MIX] (ANJUNABEATS) Release Date: 2013-2-25edmcharts_above

Rating: ★★★★★

Genre: TRANCE

Origin: UK

Description: Above & Beyond continue to release individual original mixes from last year’s “Group Therapy” album. “Black Room Boy” just adds to the list of brilliant stand outs from the album. The track features the group’s stand out (and almost exclusive) vocalist Richard Bedford. The track has a little more a darker vibe to it than the typical nostalgic tracks from Above & Beyond. It truly takes a talent like Above & Beyond, to release an album over a year ago, and then re-release each track as an original mix.

1. TIM MASON “SWOON” [ORIGINAL MIX] (SIZE RECORDS) Release Date: 2013-2-11edmcharts_timmason

Rating: ★★★★★

Genre: PROGRESSIVE HOUSE

Origin: UK

Description: UK DJ Tim Mason under Steve Angello’s Size Records, hits the #1 spot this week with his massive release of “Swoon” which was initially put to public display on Pete Tong’s BBC Radio1 show. The track contains melodies that are very uplifting and climbing. It has a “feel good” vibe, which often tends to be the one defining quality of  a #1 track. This is his largest track to date following up “Anima”.
