EDMCHARTS_VOL112

EDM Charts fans, sorry for the break, but summer has been crazy with travel, weddings, etc! Tristan Garner drops an electro bomb with “Molotov”. Fon.Leman give us a peaceful trip into “One Day”. Orjan Nilsen gets spicy with “Xiing”.

1. TRISTAN GARNER “MOLOTOV” [ORIGINAL MIX] (XTRA LIFE MUSIC) Release Date: 2013-7-1edmcharts_tristangarner

Rating: ★★★★★

Genre: ELECTRO HOUSE

Origin: FRANCE

Description: Tristan Garner takes over the #1 spot for the first time on EDM Charts this week with “Molotov”. This electro house banger is dark, grimy and very hard rock. It reminds us of Rob Zombie being up on the decks. The bass is pounding and searing all at the same time. Garner has been on a bit of  streak of late, leaning more towards the darker edge of electro house. We can’t argue though, as this gets you going.

Dirty Dutch star Afrojack partners with Shermanology for a banger . Newcomers Space Rockerz feature Ellie Lawson for a track that isn’t “So Out Of Reach” of being a breakthrough. Continue reading

1. DADA LIFE “HAPPY VIOLENCE” [VOCAL EXTENDED MIX] (So Much Dada)

Release Date: 2011-10-31

Let me first say that this Swedish duo are two of the craziest bastards I’ve seen on the music scene. Just check out their Twitter @dadalife and you’ll get my drift. Now, to the song! Featuring the typical electro house sound and tekkie tweaks common with Dada Life, this song makes a bold entry to #1 on the countdown. I’m not sure who does the vocals on this song, even though I’m pretty sure it is Luciana. Definitely one of the most unique #1’s to make the list.

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

Release Date: 2011-10-24

Digitalism stays on the countdown for the second week in a row. This is a major collabo, with the original “Super Swede” Eric Prydz. I’m really fascinated with the mesmorizing loop. Now that’s what I call progressive house! It will be interesting to follow Digitalism to see if he makes an even bigger name for himself.

3. ORJAN NILSEN “VIKING” [ORIGINAL MIX] (Armind)

Release Date: 2011-10-24

Yes, Orjan is the very first Norweigan to make the countdown. Nilsen is 28, but looks like he is about 14. Disregard his looks. Viking is a hardhitting trance banger. You can tell Nilsen is skillful with the programming, as the chords are so tightly tuned and arranged.

4. CRYSTAL WATERS, YOLANDA BE COOL “LE BUMP” [CLUB MIX] (Sweat It Out!)

Release Date: 2011-10-19

Yolanda Be Cool brings us a funky fresh house hit. This is a strong attempt to follow up their world wide hit “We No Speak Americano”. They make this possible by lining up Crystal Waters on the vocals, who has been featured on an endless list of house singles. Upbeat in style, “Le Bump” is a character filled song that tops the house genre right now.

5. BASTO ”AGAIN AND AGAIN” [EXTENDED MIX] (Spinnin Records)

Release Date: 2011-10-03

Well, another first time appearance for a new country! This time we visit Belgium for Basto and his big hit “Again and Again”. This has progressive house written all overt. I love the brief and minimal mix in of vocals reciting the title of the song. Some people say this is a rip off of Avicii. Others say this was the theme song for Wonderland 2011. I say it is legit.
