This week in electro and progressive house music, we've got a fresh batch of new talent to check out, including rising duo DubVision, who have climbed to the #1 spot on this week's chart. Don't count out songs named after Kanye West, though, as Steve Aoki and twoloud bring us a hard remix of the Chainsmokers' recent release. Not far behind is an epic track that Thomas Gold recently unleashed on an NYC crowd.
1. "Turn It Around" DubVision, Spinnin' Records
DubVision has been creating quite a buzz on the big room scene recently. Although their recent tracks have been riveting electro tracks, their latest release takes a different turn into the progressive sound, and the result is a very soothing tune that still packs heat in the buildup. Out November 10th.
2. "Kanye" (Steve Aoki Vs Twoloud Remix) The Chainsmokers, TBD
This is the first time I've seen Aoki and twoloud join forces, and the results are satisfying. Taking the Chainsmokers follow-up track to "Selfie," this collabl team creates a much harder, big room sound for those who want to be like "Kanye." Release TBD.
3. "Colourblind" Thomas Gold feat. Kate Elsworth, Revealed Recordings
Veteran producer Thomas Gold premiered this stimulating progressive track at his recent show on Governor's Island in New York City. Kate Elsworth lends her alluring voice to this uplifting tune. Out now.
4. "New School Renegade" Hunter Siegel, Size Records
An interesting addition to Steve Angello's roster, Hunter Siegel produces a medium-energy progressive-style track. File under future house. Out now.
5. "Heartbeat" John Dahlback Feat. Little Boots, Musical Freedom
I can't remember more than a month or two going by over the past 6 years where John Dahlback didn't release a new track. The production workhorse brings us a progressive beat backed by some big room punch and a nice vocal touch. Out now.
6. "Lasers" ZIGGY & Syzz, Wall Recordings
Afrojack continues to cultivate new talent on his record label, this time signing a pleasing progressive anthem. The synths transport me right back to festival season. Out October 27th.
7. "Tear It Off" Skitzofrenix & Jeff Doubleu, Revealed Recordings
Skitzofrenix makes yet another release on Revealed with the help of Jeff Doubleu. Hypnotizing synths build up and meld with pump-up vocals, commanding you to throw your hands in the air and unleashing some dark electro riffs. Out now.
8. "What Does This Button Do" Wolfpack Ft Aarow, Smash The House
With back to back releases on Smash the House, Wolfpack is tearing it up, and this time brings Aarow along for the ride. I'll tell you what this button does. It makes the floor collapse under you, sending you down an electro vortex of epic proportions. Out now.
9. "The Center" Marc Benjamin, Revealed Recordings
Marc Benjamin returns to the scene, this time on Hardwell's super label. Grinding late night synths build from the into all the way through the drop. Out now.
10. "Jag War" Harrys & Fly, Ones To Watch Records
A breeding ground for fresh new talent, Ones To Watch presents newcomes Harrys & Fly to the scene with a solid electro debut. A driving percussive intro gives way to a catchy yet intricate beat. Out now.
