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.

WEEKLY TOP ELECTRONIC CHARTS: OCTOBER 2011, VOL. 24

27 Oct

1. ERIC PRYDZ, DIGITALISM “CIRCLES” [ERIC PRYDZ REMIX] (Pryda Friends)

Release Date: 2011-10-24

Classic Eric Prydz! Not only is Digitalism a talent Prydz discovered, but he remixed it over his own talent to make it a for sure top 5 in the next couple weeks. The beat just keeps building and building, very similar in style to Prdyz’ other hit Pjanoo. The beat is fascinating, and the minor bit of vocals gets the job done.

2. COLDPLAY “PARADISE” [FEDDE LE GRAND REMIX] (Toolroom Records)

Release Date: 2011-10-17

Coldplay stays in the top 5 for a second week in a row. It is fascinating to see the impact that the two Toolroom Record studs, Mark Knight & Fedde Le Grand have done to the industry in 2011. They have brought this label back to life and made it a serious contender for being a top 5 electronic label right up there with the likes of Armada, Ultra and Anjunabeats.

3. STONEFACE & TERMINAL “LEAVING EARTH” [ORIGINAL MIX] (Euphonic)

Release Date: 2011-10-09

The German duo of Stoneface & Terminal crush the trance scene with this hit. They make a huge name for themselves now, as they try to get exposure from Kyau & Albert’s Euphonic record label. It has a unique blend of trance, progressive house, with a slight mix of electro house. This is a very catchy track, that definitely deserves this high ranking.

4. TRITONAL, CRISTINA SOTO “STILL WITH ME” [CLUB MIX] (Air Up There Recordings)

Release Date: 2011-10-10

The Dallas duo stay at #4 this final week of October. The track is now currently ranked #1 on the Beatport trance charts. This is an example of an amazing blend of vocals, mixed with masterful synths to match up in style right with the likes of Above & Beyond.

5. JOEY NEGRO, ALEX KENJI ”FEEL IT” [ALEX KENJI REMIX] (Z Records)

Release Date: 2011-10-17

Pure house written all over this monster! Unbelievable concoction of house beat with soulful Nu-Disco. It almost makes me feel like I’m at Studio 54, but in 2012 and not 1978. Great song by Negro, with Kenji who is making a name for himself with all of his recent remixes.

WEEKLY TOP ELECTRONIC CHARTS: OCTOBER 2011, VOL. 23

27 Oct

1. COLDPLAY “PARADISE” [FEDDE LE GRAND REMIX] (Toolroom Records)

Release Date: 2011-10-17

Yes, guess what? Coldplay actually made #1 on my countdown this week. We can mainly thank Fedde Le Grand however for why this song is even on the list. It is a nice collabo, and fairly similar sounding and reminiscent of “Save The World” by Swedish House Mafia. This is a huge hit, that will surely dominate the radio waves.

2. SPENCER & HILL, NADIA ALI “BELIEVE IT” [CLUB MIX] (Wall Recordings)

Release Date: 2011-10-03

Spencer & Hill and Nadia Ali stay high up on the list for another week. Top vocalist of the year, without a doubt, goes to Nadia Ali. She has single handedly established herself as the voice of EDM. It is only a matter of time before we will probably unfortunately hear her on a pop track with someone like Timbaland or 3OH!3. Regardless, this song is a great combo of progressive house and a little bit of wobble from dubstep.

3. DIRTY SOUTH, THOSE USUAL SUSPECTS, ERIK HECHT “WALKING ALONE” [ORIGINAL MIX] (Phazing)

Release Date: 2011-10-19

Dirty South strikes again with the assistance of Those Usual Suspects from Australia. I’ve never heard of Erik Hecht, but he does a unique vocal layover, that blends perfectly with this progressive house bomb. There is definitely a lot of short and snappy synths on this track, with help make it very upbeat. A unique track at that, which is definitely worthy of this spot.

4. TRITONAL, CRISTINA SOTO “STILL WITH ME” [CLUB MIX] (Air Up There Recordings)

Release Date: 2011-10-10

First off, I’d like to say that I cannot believe the trance duo Tritonal is from the US! Absolutely unheard of in the trance scene. Fantastic track done with the assistance of Cristina Soto. This is under trance, but if anything, it give me a very airy progressive house feel. Tritonal reminds me of a poor man’s Above & Beyond.

5. BT, ADAM K ”TOMAHAWK” [ORIGINAL MIX EDIT] (Armada Music)

Release Date: 2011-09-30

BT…you are ridiculous! This is a great track that fuses hardcore dub step with electro house. Eerily in style to that of Mord Fustang’s “Lick The Rainbow”. If you haven’t had a chance, check out BT’s Laptop Symphony on Sirius XM. A great show, with great commentary. What can I say, I wouldn’t expect anything less from BT; I mean the guy is literally a certified genius.
