Check out What's Trending this week in our Beatport Top Ten recap!
Beatport Top Ten
10. Virus (How About Now) Martin Garrix & MOTi
Yet another banger from the young Dutch producer. Rising to fame from his track Animals, Garrix has become a main stage presence in every music festival around the world. Virus is the collaborated track with Dutch DJ/producer MOTi, who is signed with Garrix, to Tiësto’s Musical Freedom record label.
9. Savior Bassjackers
Releasing many tracks through Spinnin Records, Bassjackers have produced anthem after anthem, and have worked their way to the main stage. Marlon Flohr and Ralph van Hilst comprise the DJ alias, and earned their place because of Fedde Le Grand’s talent recognition prowess.
8. Freaks Have More Fun Dada Life
Dada Life continues to produce epic dance tracks, and this is no exception. Their unique sound parallels their two-of-a-kind personalities (along with their banana suits). After only a week of the record’s release, Freaks Have More Fun definitely earns a spot in the top ten.
7. SuperWave Ummet Ozcan
I have personally waited for the release of this track for quite some time now. I heard the preview which was released by Spinnin Records, and was immediately hooked. Ozcan’s sound is similar to R3hab’s, who is also one of my favorite producers, and SuperWave is a hyper-amplified banger that does not disappoint. It will keep you bouncin’ all through this cold winter.
6. Dangerous Robin Schulz Remix
Quickly recognized by the mainstream media outlets, David Guetta’s Dangerous resonated from our headphones extremely quickly. There have been many remixes released from the stems of this track, but Robin Schulz’s rendition is ranked as one of the best, thus far. There is a trance-like quality to the remix, and generates a slightly different feel to the track. It definitely deserves the shout out on Beatport’s Top Ten.
5. House Music Robosonic Remix
This Robosonic Remix creates a more progressive feel to the Eddie Amador original house track. It is a fast paced shuffler that has really interesting organ synths. There is still plenty of the original track that is recognizable, which I commend in any remix that is worth discussing.
4. Pikachu Oliver Heldens & Mr. Belt & Wezol
Don’t even get me started on the incredible talent we are experiencing with Oliver Heldens. At nineteen years of age, the House Music producer has collaborated with Mr. Belt & Wezol to create an unbelievable, Pokémon-sampled modern shuffler. Following hugely popular tracks: Gecko; This; and Feelin’ Good, Heldens has illustrated a true talent in the music production scene.
3. Calabria Firebeatz Remix
Firebeatz has re-introduced Rune RK’s Calabria Loop from a little more than six years ago. Rune RK’s 2008 DJ tool was the quintessential party-starter in the rise of electronic dance music in the United States. Firebeatz has transformed the original electro-house regular into the signature sounds heard time, and time again, from the Dutch DJ/producer duo.
2. Exceeder UMEK & Mike Vale Remix
The collaborated remix of Mason’s original record consists of sounds and build-ups heard often from progressive house tracks. UMEK has become a (literal) house name in the electronic music scene, while Mike Vale is still on the up-and-coming wave of House Music crossing into the West.
1. Burnin’ Calvin Harris & R3hab
It seems that not a month goes by without seeing R3hab’s name somewhere in Beatport’s Top Ten. Whether it is a remix, original track, or collaboration, the progressive-house producer continues to create amazing records for our listening/dancing pleasures. Calvin Harris is a king in his own right, and it speaks to the talent of fellow collaborator, R3hab, that Harris found similarities between the two seemingly-different sound waves. Calvin Harris’ newest album is full of big-room bangers, and supplemented by vocals from some of the best vocalists in the scene, today. This record definitely deserves its continued number-one spot in Beatport’s Top Ten.
