As the sound of house music continues to evolve, so do the different faces that represent the genre. This week's top ten chart represents some of those rising stars such as Recondite, Lane 8, Waze & Odyssey, Bicep, and of course this week's top tune holder. Kydus!
1. 'REFUSE (KYDUS REMIX)' - PIEMONT FEAT. LIOBA [GLASGOW UNDERGROUND]
Liverpool based producer, Kydus first set the dance music world on fire last year with a couple singles that were both amazing in their own right. 'Transatlantic' which was hammered all summer long by Carl Cox and of course 'Jupiter Rising' which Pete Tong championed all over Radio 1 and in the clubs as well. Fast forward to this season and it would appear that Kydus is picking up right where he left off with a totally Balearic re-rub of Piemont's 'Refuse'. This one is definitely a contender for tune of the Summer!
2. 'COLD WAIT (BICEP DUB)' - IAN POOLEY [POOLED MUSIC]
The legendary Ian Pooley released a full length LP back in 1998, which never saw a digital release until now. To accompany the album, he's enlisted some contemporary talent to remix a few of the tunes including one of the hottest duos around at the moment, Bicep!
3. 'HOUSE SEASON (WAZE & ODYSSEY'S I WANNA PARTY REMIX)' - KI CREIGHTON [ELROW MUSIC]
From one fire hot duo to the next and this one comes from Waze & Odyssey as they inject a whole lot of uptempo percussion to Ki Creighton's 'House Season'.
4. 'ANDEVER' - RECONDITE [INNERVISIONS]
Recondite makes an extremely well deserved return to one of dance music's most prolific imprints, Innervisions.
5. 'IRIS' - ANTHONY GEORGES PATRICE [PLAY LABEL RECORDS]
Belgium's Play Label Records just released their first ever compilation which features this severely deep and jazzy choon simply entitled 'Iris'.
6. 'FEEL THE FIRE (VOLKODER REMIX)' - ANDRE SALMON [REPOPULATE MARS]
Lee Foss' Repopulate Mars imprint gets it's fourth ever release from Ecuadorian producer Andre Salmon and it features this scorching remix from Brazilian producer, Volkoder.
7. 'HIDDEN KARISMA' - GUY MANTZUR & ROY ROSENFELD [SYSTEMATIC RECORDINGS]
Guy Mantzur & Roy Rosenfeld's collaboration on 'Epika' was one of my favorite tunes of last year so I'm pretty damn excited that these guys have gotten back together for a new three track EP on Marc Romboy's Systematic Recordings!
8. 'SEE THE LINE' - LOPEZHOUSE FEAT. ANGELA [EXPLOITED]
Spanish duo Lopezhouse make their debut on Exploited with a very high quality indie production that could do very well not just on the dancefloor but beyond as well.
9. 'FINGERPRINT' - LANE 8 [THIS NEVER HAPPENED]
Rising star, Lane 8 kicks off his new record label This Never Happened with a genre-defying thumper entitled 'Fingerprint.'
10. 'MOMENT AFTER MOMENT' - NUAGE [20/20 VISIONS]
Russian producer Nuage makes his debut on the legendary 20/20 Visions imprint with a well-rounded mini LP featuring this downtempo beauty.
