What a great week for releases for a traditionally slow time of the year for EDM! Bjorn Akesson comes up blazing with trance with “Gunsmoke”. Daddy’s Groove is looking “stellar”. Ost & Meyer “take off” with their latest single.
Description: When you think of Future Sound of Egypt, you think of two things: trance and Aly & Fila. Well, it’s time to think of three things, as we introduce to you Bjorn Akesson. He’s been producing for some great tracks over the last couple years with “Painting Pyramids” and “Castle Technology” as prime examples. The most recent release “Gunsmoke” is trance at its finest. The young Swede captures the energy of Egypt, by integrating string instruments and banging synths. Stay tuned this week as we will be featuring an interview with Akesson!
Reminds Us Of: “Sand Theme – FSOE 250” – Aly & Fila, Bjorn Akesson
1. SPENCER & HILL, NADIA ALI “BELIEVE IT” [CLUB MIX] (Wall Recordings)
Release Date: 2011-10-03
The duo from Germany have come up with probably one of the best unknown hits of 2011. Nadia Ali once again comes through on this track with her mesmerizing voice. This is a dirty electro house track that is brought into perfect equilibrium with the vocals provided by Ali. It is good to see Spencer & Hill get great exposure on a track that doesn’t happen to be a remix, which is their typical forté.
2. GREGOR SALTO, CHUCKIE “WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS” [CLUB MIX] (Cr2 Records)
Release Date: 2011-09-05
Ok, I’m pretty sure everybody knows the Dirty Dutch sensation Chuckie for his remixes and hits. The true question is do you know Gregor Salto? Well if you haven’t it is ok, as he hasn’t blown up quite yet. Suprise, suprise…he’s another Dutch artist however. The song is very cool with the lead in with Vietnam-era style guitar followed up with minimalistic vocals. It truly is the perfect song for all the clubs in Vegas.
3. PROK & FITCH, JUAN KID “STAR GUITAR” [FESTIVAL MIX] (Toolroom Records)
Release Date: 2011-09-26
Star Guitar stays on the countdown for a second week in a row. Prok & Fitch have hit this remix of a classic out of the park. The upbeat track keeps you listening, while yet you’re intrigued by the electric guitar integration. Great track to start wrapping up 2011.
4. ZEDD “SHAVE IT” [ORIGINAL MIX] (OWSLA)
Release Date: 2011-10-04
Well, it appears on this countdown as if we’re having a contest between Germany and Holland. Zedd, hailing from Germany, makes this week’s list with some electro house. Recently signed under Skrillex’s new label, Zedd showcases his flexible style, integrating forms of house and dubstep. Great song, that has quickly risen up the charts.
5. ARTY, TANIA ZYGAR ”THE WALL” [ARTY REMODE MIX] (Enhanced Progressive)
Release Date: 2011-09-26
Arty, the Russian wonder kid, stays on the countdown for the second straight week. This as an absolute ridiculous remix of his own song. It’s a bit of a darker beat to be on top of the charts in trance right now, but it is unique. The track has a great integration of guitar in background. It is very continuous and catchy.
