Welcome to the WMC edition of the top ten house music chart courtesy of yours truly at Magnetic Magazine. There are definitely some contenders in here for tracks of the year including Jonas Rathsman's newest epic tune, Friend Within's latest gem, & even Justin Jay's brilliant new one that he produced in his dorm room. Plus, some of the usual suspects in here as well like Jamie Jones & of course Christian Nielsen!
1. “Wolfsbane” Jonas Rathsman, Method White
The latest single from the mighty Jonas Rathsman is a step in a new direction for the French Express alum whereas his prior productions were a bit more on the classic sound of old school garage style house music. Here with "Wolfsbane" he's incorporated a more futuristic and contemporary sound without sacrificing any quality and/or originality. Enjoy the visual stimulation of the video included and make sure you catch this star in the making during WMC at the following dates and locations:
3/27 - Disclosure presents: Wildlife Miami
3/28 - Anjunadeep at Cafeina Wynwood Lounge
3/28-3/29 - Potion Pool Party at Mondrian South Beach Hotel
3/29-3/29 - MMW/WMC: Sunset Lawn (Two Day Event) at W Hotel - South Beach
2. “House Every Weekend” David Zowie, Virgin EMI
This tune has been circulating for about the past 6 months or so but it finally sees the light of a day with a major label debut from a brand new recording artist by the name of David Zowie. Expect this song to become a major house music anthem for the years to come.
3. “The Talk” Friend Within feat. Camden Cox, He Loves You
The mysterious artist known as Friend Within enlists the beautifully delicate vocals of Camden Cox on the b-side of his latest single "The Square" out now on his own imprint He Loves You.
4. “How I Knew” Justin Jay, Pets Recordings
Justin Jay has the honor of putting out Pets Recordings' 50th release and deservedly so because his latest EP here entitled Momentum is a well rounded three-tracker that is nothing short of stellar.
5. “On Me (Club Tweak)” Mark Jenkyns Feat. MC Chickaboo, Hot Creations
Mark Jenkyns may be a relatively new recording artist but he has been cutting his teeth in the dance music scene in Ibiza since 2003. Be sure to catch him at the following dates and locations during WMC:
3/23 - Picnic for Misfits WMC Affair with Matt Tolfrey, Jozif & More

Freerange Records is completely proud and honored that they get to present the house music world with their 200th ever release and to celebrate the occasion they've put together a two part release that is stacked from top to bottom with nothing but raw, top shelf house music. Featured here on the top ten house chart is "MYLNY" by Voyage Recordings label-boss Andy Hart. This is out now both digitally and on vinyl!!
9. “El Diablo (Chambray Remix)” Human Life & Anabel Englund, Win Music
Ultramajic recording artist Chambray steps in for remixing duties on Human Life & Anabel Englund's latest collaboration and the result is brilliantly original thanks to the two contrasting qualities of the track, delicate melodies & vocals combined with Chambray's signature jacking beats.
10. “Lemon” Fortunate War, Blah Blah Blah Records
I don't have the slightest clue as to who Fortunate War is but this latest single from the Blah Blah Blah imprint is an arp-heavy stomper which is today!
