House music comes in many different forms, but when it goes deep, it tends to shine the brightest. There's just something brilliant about a throbbing, steady beat with a melody played over it with the slightest of ease. Most of the tunes included here on this week's chart do exactly that and I couldn't be more delighted to introduce some of you to this future sound of deep house. For those of you already thoroughly familiar, welcome back!
1. 'NOCTURNE BELLE (TIM GREEN REMIX)' - MARK SLEE [MANJUMASI]
Sonically speaking, UK producer Tim Green has come quite a long way since 2010 when Pete Tong was rinsing his remix of Cassius' modern disco classic '1999'. And the evolution of his production skills couldn't be more evident than on his magically fantastic rework of Mark Slee's newest tune.
2. 'METROPOLIS' - DAVI [REBELLION]
The Metropolis EP concludes the final of a three part series in which DAVI explains Babylonian times through his composition of music by flirting with middle eastern influenced melodies. Be prepared to close your eyes and dance.
3. 'ANGEL'S VISIT (EMANUEL SATIE REMIX)' - DJ W!LD [SANITY]
Rising underground star, Emanuel Satie remixes DJ W!LD's latest tune and the result is nothing less than massive.
4. 'LITTLE BEAT THING (KEVIN OVER REMIX)' - NINETOES [KLING KLONG]
Kevin Over is another rising underground star in the chart this week whose tunes are taking over dance-floors all over the world, one banging track at a time.
5. 'NEEDS (SEB WILDBLOOD REMIX)' - SUBMOTION ORCHESTRA FT. ANDREW ASHONG [COUNTER RECORDS]
UK producer Seb Wildblood couldn't have been a better candidate to remix Submotion Orchestra's lead single 'Needs' taken from their current album, Colour Theory. Magnetic actually premiered this track, read about it here. He also just released his Jazz Vol. 1 EP, which is absolutely incredible.
6. 'WANNA BE LIKE YOU (INSTRUMENTAL)' - LARSE [SUOL]
German producer, Larse first caught my attention with his absolutely massive house music anthem, "So Long" back in 2011. Five years later he's still in it and on this collaboration with house music legend, Lisa Shaw he's achieved sonic excellence. However, on the chart I've decided to include the instrumental just to demonstrate the musical prowess of Larse and this ethereal gem. He was tapped as one of our artists to watch in May, see who else made the cut.
7. 'THE HERD' - CAUSE & AFFECT [THIS AIN'T BRISTOL]
When it comes to bass-heavy house music, This Ain't Bristol is the leading authority thanks to simplistically, brilliant, banging tunes such as this latest release by Cause & Affect. Turn it up and watch those bass-bins.
8. 'BRUN (MATTHIAS MEYER REMIX)' - RYAN DAVIS [ANJUNADEEP]
Ryan Davis' latest tune 'Brun' made such a big impact on the acclaimed Anjunadeep 07 compilation that it's getting a pair of remixes from two prolific producers, Luca Bacchetti and of course as featured here, Matthias Meyer!
9. 'MOST LIKELY' - HERMANEZ [LAPSUS MUSIC]
Belgian tech-house producer extraordinaire, Hermanez makes a rousing debut on the fire hot Italian imprint, Lapsus Music!
10. 'TRUGANINI' - RESET ROBOT [TRUESOUL]
Rounding out this week's best new tracks in house music is Reset Robot's 'Truganini' which may not be so new but the track itself is downright resilient and it doesn't seem to be going anywhere anytime soon.
