This week's top ten house chart features the latest and greatest in house music. Featured as the top tune of the week is the newest Terranova remix package but also, Jonas Rathsman's newest blazer sits high on the chart as well. Plus, let's not forget about the supporting cast which features an array of artists and labels across the house music spectrum.
1. “Skin & Bones (Karl Friedrich Mix)” - Terranova
One of my top tunes of the year belongs to the original version of the gorgeously sung "Skin & Bones" by guest vocalists Lydmore & Bon Homme. Therefore, it should be of no surprise that this stunning rework by Karl Friedrich lands in the chart as the top tune of the week!
2. “Fear And Self Loathing” - Clarian
The producer extraordinaire who is known simply as Clarian first popped up on my radar a couple years back in 2013 when he collaborated with Guy Gerber for the absolutely beautiful "Claire". Now two years later, he's caught my attention once again with something a bit more spectacular and ethereal called "Fear And Self Loathing" which is out now on Guy Gerber's imprint, Rumors.
3. “Conium” - Jonas Rathsman
"Conium" may be the b-side to the more well-known single, "New Generation" but in no way is it inferior. Jonas Rathsman's "Conium" is a masterclass in how house music fits into the modern electronic music world. It's psychedelic, forward-thinking, raw, progressive, and destined to make you dance!
4. “Gotta Be" - Montel
Montel's latest EP on Lost Records is all dancefloor and it features this fire-hot banging tune called "Gotta Be" which is already seeing early support from the likes of Sidney Charles, Riva Starr, & Philip Bader!
5. “Fade To Black" - Ross Evans
The latest release on Nic Fanciulli's Saved imprint comes from Ross Evans and it's called the Super Skank EP!
6. “Heavy Fate" - Jody Barr
The Popes & Wizards EP by Jody Barr features this absolute dancefloor destroyer called "Heavy Fate."
7. “L.O.V.E." - Purple Disco Machine & Boris Dlugosch
The mighty Defected Records makes a glorious return to my weekly top ten house music chart with a charming sing-along tune entitled "L.O.V.E." by Purple Disco Machine & Boris Dlugosch.
8. “Hippies" - Tigerskin
[Dirt Crew Recordings]
Dirt Crew Recordings' flagship artist Tigerskin has completed over fifteen releases for the label and the quantity certainly doesn't reign over the quality as he executes his latest with utmost exceptional care yet again.
9. “Synchronicity" - Martin Buttrich & Mathew Jonson
Veteran producer Martin Buttrich has launched his own new label, Rhythm Assault and on the debut release he has teamed up with Mathew Jonson for a highly unique production which is definitely in a league of its own.
10. “No Complaints" - Tomson
[W&O Street Tracks]
The 13th issue on Waze & Odyssey's Street Tracks' imprint is a season sampler which features the nostalgia-heavy "No Complaints" by Tomson
