Rating★★★★★

Genre: Progressive House

Description: Initially off the album release this summer “Evolution”, “Eternity” gets remixed by Swedish producers Qulinez. The track is an example of hybrid progressive house. It is a bit more upbeat than the original, packed full of energy. Adam Young of Owl City does a brilliant job on lyrics. It is a match made in heaven.

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.
