March usually brings a large chunk of the summer anthems and bangers so don't just consider this chart the best of the past month. Think of it more as a forecast of which tracks are likely to stick around for a while like Kolsch's ultra-melodic "Left Eye Left," Riva Starr's thumping update of "Needin U," and of course the irresistibly, deep remix of "Hate Me" provided by Maya Jane Coles.
1. "HATE ME (MAYA JANE COLES REMIX)" - KDA FEAT. PATRICK CASH [BMG]
Dance music's most thought provoking track of 2017 gets a deeper revision from the one and only Maya Jane Coles.
2. "NEEDIN' U (RIVA STARR REMIX)" - DAVID MORALES PRESENTS THE FACE [SNATCH! RECORDS]
3. "LEFT EYE LEFT" - KOLSCH [KOMPAKT]
Kolsch just keeps pushing out one brilliant tune after another and "Left Eye Left" is just more proof that he's more than able to consistently craft nearly perfect pieces of electronic music.
4. "OPAL (FOUR TET REMIX)" - BICEP [NINJA TUNE]
5. "INTERGALACTIC PLASTIC" - LUTTRELL [ANJUNADEEP]
6. "SANDS OF TIME" - FREDDY BE & SAVI LEON [NEW VIOLENCE RECORDS]
7. "TRUE (MICHAEL MAYER REMIX)" - SASHA FEAT. DEMS [LATE NIGHT TALES]
Clocking in at a very cozy 125BPM is this prog-heavy revision of Sasha's very superb "True," which was released late last year as a stand alone single on Late Night Tales. Also, included with this outstanding Michael Mayer remix are two other versions from Garden City Movement and Theo Kottis.
8. "CASPIAN (SAAND REMIX)" - DORUK GALAP [PETRA DIGITAL RECORDINGS]
LA-based producer, SAAND takes Doruk Galap's "Caspian" to the next level by softening the kick and adding a whole lot of percussion. A sure-fire recipe to burn a hole right in the middle of the dance-floor.
9. "FLASH" - LA MARINE [KOMPAKT]
The 102nd edition of Kompakt's Speicher series includes this remarkable composition by a virtually unknown producer by the name of La Marine.
10. "PANIC ROOM (CAMELPHAT CLUB MIX)" - CAMELPHAT & AU/RA [RCA]
Camelphat hit the jackpot with "Cola" last summer but more recently they've achieved pop excellence here on "Panic Room:" an outstanding vocal tune they've put together with a brand new vocalist who's billed herself simply as Au/Ra.
11. "HOUSE DIMENSION (DARIO D'ATTIS REMIX)" - MILK & SUGAR FEAT. RON CARROLL [MILK & SUGAR]
House music aficionados, Steven Harding and Michael Kronenberger aka Milk & Sugar are back on their own storied imprint with Ron Carroll on vocals preaching about the lack of authenticity in this beloved genre. It's uplifting, very real, and oh so groovy. Especially, the driving remix included here by none other than Dario D'Attis.
12. "SERIOUS" - RICH NXT [FUSE LONDON]
13. "DEEP DIP" - DETLEF FT. DAJAE [RELIEF]
14. "WE GET HIGH FROM THE MUSIC" - MARK KNIGHT FEAT. MR V [TOOLROOM]
15. "WHAT DID I TELL YA" - JULIET SIKORA & RETURN OF THE JADED [RELIEF]
Relief's second appearance on the mighty house chart is a boisterous one perfectly suited to round out the best of March.
