The Club – Week 22


Welcome to THE CLUB. A weekly dose of your favourite house, progressive house, electro house, and everything-in-between.. Each week I'll bring you a selection of my favourites of the week from the best producers in the world. I'll try to feature an emerging artist or two that catches my eye more than most, so make sure to keep your eye out for weekly servings of the biggest and best names in house music worldwide.

First things first, I'd just like to say a few words about some award ceremony I kept hearing about last weekend. While it's clear that EDM is here to stay, its the incredible voice of a woman that has had more of an impact on popular music than any. Adele took home six Grammys, rightfully so, and to honour her, I've started off this weeks mix with a vocal heavy rendition of "Rolling In The Deep" from Marcus Maison & Will Dragen, two of my favourites on The Club (Actually have a bootleg mashup of theirs featured on todays post). Next week I'll make part 2 of this particular mix series featuring my favourite electro house tracks from the past few weeks, if that's what you prefer. For now, enjoy the beautiful vocals and epic melodies of 30 of the best of 2012 so far.

Lets start this week off with a look at a few young Swedes that I've been paying close attention to for a couple of months. Bjornberg released the follow up to his club anthem of 2011 "Absolut" this week, and while it maintains the uplifting energy that his breakthrough banger had, this one, called "Libella", goes just a bit heavier. Its clear that the 17 year old is only improving as a producer and I'm more excited to see the future of this kid that anyone else in music right now. Another new project out of Sweden called Qulinez, the production duo consisting of Alexander Lager and Johannes Gustafsson, has just hit the ground running with their release of "Troll". The club ready bomb has massive support already, and since being picked up by Steve Angello's Size Records, it has already received airtime on Pete Tong's Essential Mix and been released as part of Hardwell's bootleg pack where the Dutch heavyweight mashed up "Troll" with "Antidote" and SHM's remix of "Paradise".

The Swedish invasion of house music continues as we get into some new material from Jerry Rekonius, who released his remix for Spencer & Hill's "A Million" this past week. Its clear that age doesn't matter when it comes to dropping club ready bombs, as most of what I feature here on the club comes from the under-25 age group. Jerry, at just 22, is certainly poised to make a run for dominance, whether its his electro infused progressive house bangers or his beautiful bootlegs of tracks like M83's "Midnight City", he has managed to develop his skills into an all around production wizard. Just comparing the two tracks here today you can get a feel for how versatile this kid is. Whether its uplifting progressive gems or downright dirty electro bangers, Jerry does it all flawlessly.

This past week we saw the release of the much anticipated "Wild One Two"; the follow up to the "Wild Ones" remix for Nicky Romero and David Guetta, featuring Sia on vocals. Nicky continues to release simply the best, and right now he actually has two tracks in the top 5 on Beatport. Also featured on todays post is his remix for Madonna's "Give Me All Your Luvin", and as you would expect it is pure Nicky all the way. He's got a collaboration with Fedde Le Grand that I have featured here today and its obvious that his skill as a producer is constantly improving, all while he tours the world, throwing down flawless DJ sets for hundreds or thousands almost every night.
