10. Wiz Khalifa – Black & Yellow (DJ Kue Remix)
It’s not often you stumble across a remix of a chart topping tune by some seemingly unknown DJ that’s actually any good. But this one is good. In fact, it’s excellent. DJ Kue isn’t totally unknown where he’s from but in a wider respect he is. A dripping electro hook and a hiphop beat combine to give ‘Black and Yellow” a convincing dance sound.
9. Marting Solveig – Hello (Michael Woods Remix)
Martin Solveigs “Hello” tore up the charts last September. It was a bit late really for Summer 2010, despite an Ibiza run, and therefore expect to see the tune emerge once again this Summer, perhaps it will be remixes such as this by Michael Woods that breathe it the new life for 2011.
8. Fedde Le Grand – Control Room (Original Club Mix)
Ah, the eponymous Fedde Le Grand. This time with Control Room, more sublime hooks, more build up, and more drops than you can shake a hairy fist at. Expect this to tear Ibiza a new hole in 2011.
7. Above & Beyond feat. Richard Bedford – Thing Called Love
A&B, new album due out, are set for what could be their biggest year yet, if that seems at all possible. Uplifting number Thing Called Love kicks things off, it’s very vocal, very summery and sure to get you in the mood.
6. Avicii (Tim Berg) – ID
Our most recent interviewee, Avicii a.k.a Tim Berg has huge potential, but also the incredibly difficult job on following up on “Bromance” which was such a massive hit in 2010. “ID” currently seems this most likely candidate. A smashing beat and an uplifting hook combine brilliantly. But we all know what’s missing if it’s to be the next Avicii chart smash…
5. Diddy Dirty Money Feat. Skylar Grey – Coming Home (Dirty South Remix)
You may remember we revealed Dirty South was due to release a remix of chart track “Coming Home” by Dirty Diddy Money. It’s now out, and you can check it out below! Out now on Beatport
4. Superman (Original Mix) – Mat Zo
Mat Zo. ‘Nuff said. Enjoy.
3. Bart B More & Harvard Bass – Listen To This
Bart B More, our favourite stateside beatmaker, gives us another clangar to drop in the shape of Listen to This, a collab with Harvard Bass. Vibrant, rhythmic and downright dirty, this is what music sounds like when it has sex. With itself.
2. Will Bailey – Chip Shop (Original Mix)
Another tune I’ve unashamedly pinched from T.Skys latest pussy violence mixset, Chip Shop is possibly the filthiest, nastiest fidget house track you’ll ever hear. Expect most peoples trousers to darken in colour when this drops in your local club spot. Ohh-er.
1. Sander van Doorn – Koko
Sander, how we adore thee.
