Well it's about time to put a lid on 2014 with my final house music chart of the year. Rarely does anyone release music at the very end or very beginning of the year but there's a few here that decided to do just that. See you in 2015!
1. “Awake” Sante feat. J.U.D.G.E., Ultra
The Berlin-based artist known simply as Sante released this gem back in October on his debut album entitled "Current". However, "Awake" now sees a single release in a slightly more dancefloor-ready format along with a new remix by Agoria.
2. “All I Want (Dosem Remix)” Umek & Mike Vale, 1605
It would seem that everything Dosem has touched lately has turned to gold. His spectacular remix of "All I Want" by Umek & Mike Vale is no exception either! Dosem has dialed in quite nicely to a crisp-clean style of production that has been unmatched. Expect very big things for Dosem in 2015.
3. “Womp It” Kevin Saunderson & Dantiez Saunderson, KMS Records
When I first saw this father and son combo in action early this year on their Boiler Room Chicago set, I knew the two had to get in the studio together. Here they are together on their first-ever collaboration and it's the whopping 186th release on Kevin Saunderson's KMS imprint. This is a family affair that house music needs to see more of.
4. “Sordid Affair (Lo'99 Remix)” Royksopp, Dog Triumph
Maceo Plex put his magic touch on this amazing tune earlier this month and now there's a whole new remix package out which includes re-rubs by Watermat, Wankemlmut, Fehrplay, Konstantin Sibold, and Lo'99 as featured here on my final top 10 chart of 2014.
5. “Fly Away (Vocal Mix)” Danism ft Arnold Jarvis, Noir Music
Noir Music puts the lid on their 2014 catalog with a compilation simply entitled "Songs" and featured on it is a wonderful collaboration between Danism and the legendary vocalist Arnold Jarvis.
6. “Driver” Chilly, Blue Dye
This feel-good house tune by UK producer Chilly is out now via the Blue Dye imprint.
7. “Remurdered” Luigi Rocca, 303Lovers
Massive floor-filling tune alert!
8. “Rhythmer” Karol XVII & MB Valence, Loco Records
"Rhythmer" was premiered here on Magnetic last week and it's due out on January 5th via Loco Records.
9. “Afrikaan Donce” Chris & Antanas, NDV
The Afrikaan Donce EP was exclusively out only on vinyl until yesterday's digital release on Juno.
10. “I Want You” Jesusdapnk, Saturday Night Sessions
The final release of the year for Saturday Night Sessions is a deep number called "I Want You" by San Diego based producer Jesusdapnk.
