Top 10: May 2011

On the menu for this month: slow stuff, pop stuff, indie stuff, & progressive trance.

10. The Answer (Trentemoller Remix) - UNKLE

What a great start to May, and to warm weather.

9. Second Chance (RAC Mix) - Peter Bjorn & John

This is simply delightful, danceable yet very loungy.

8. Shelter - The XX

There are so many people recording "videos" to this song, but how can't you? It's moving. Check out the original and the remake by Hercules & Love Affair, of course them.

7. Contact High (Clock Opera Remix) - Architecture in Helsinki

Architecture in Helsinki never let me down.

6. ; John - iamamiwhoami

If you don't know about iamamiwhoami, then do yourself a favor, and log onto the "iamamiwhoami" channel on YouTube and watch the entire story. It's a series of videos with lucid and peculiar themes. This video and song are amazing!

5. If I Feel (Mladen Tomic Remix) - Manuel De La Mare

De La Mare is my new favorite house Dj. This Italian sensation never lets me down. Follow him on Twitter, he's always laying down the law! http://twitter.com/#!/ManuelDeLaMare

4. Dew Point - Answer42

This is a beautiful & melodious progressive beat, that will bring you to your senses.

3. Marsh (Original Mix) - Solarity

Progressive trance at its best!

2. Light Bulb (ANR Remix) - Rachel Goodrich

This beautiful indie pop thing keep popping into my ear drums, so I included it.

1. Brotherhood - Roddy Reynaert & Man of Good Will

This is one of the best progressive trance tracks that I've heard in the past 5 years. No lie. I'm sure this is a hit at Ministry of Sound in London, where trance still reigns!
