Here at FNT, we’ve been supporters of 5 & A Dime for quite some time now, and we’ve seen his growth from a successful mashup career to full-fledged original producer. This Philadelphia-based up-and-comer has been taking the dance world by storm, which can be seen by the support he’s getting on major festival stages, like Coachella, from artists such as The Chainsmokers, TJR, DJ Snake and more. 5 & A Dime just unveiled his latest masterpiece, “Rush,” and it’s appropriately titled as it’s a relentless, electro stomper that also brings future and house sounds in the mix, which are a sign of his musical evolution. It’s already been a fruitful year for the young talent, but he’s bound for greatness throughout the rest of this year and beyond.

Electro-House, Melbourne Bounce | TJR ft. Benji Madden – Come Back Down

TJR featuring Benji Madden - Come Back Down

Melbourne bounce has hit the mainstream of dance music and you can put a lot of the blame or credit on TJR’s shoulders. It is obviously more nuanced than that, but as the sound continues to evolve, TJR’s tracks have been some of the most played in festival sets around the world for the past 12-18 months and it is from a weird, niche genre. His latest sure-fire hit single “Come Back Down” adds male vocals for a bit of a harder rock vibe to the bouncy, agressive bass line that comes with a TJR tune. Expect to hear a lot of this in Miami and beyond.

Electro-House | TJR – What’s Up Suckaz

Posted by on July 22, 2013

TJR - What's Up SuckazThere are few who can survive working with Mr. Worldwide with their artistic reputation almost entire unscathed. TJR did just that because the tunes he makes are so unique to him, that you accept one chance to get paid and exposed to millions of new listeners like that. “What’s Up Suckaz” is his latest single on Chris Lake‘s Rising Music, a relationship that has worked very well for both parties, that evokes the style that we have grown fond of hearing from TJR. With a bouncy bass line, gritty, grinding saws and well placed vocal samples, this track is a unique cut and sure-fire hit in a climate where watered down hardstyle kicks and triplets are easiest road to mainstream dance music success for producers.

Compilation, House | Top 50 Dance Tracks Of 2013: 20-11

Posted by on January 13, 2010

Top 50 dance tracks of 2013

20. Audien – Wayfarer
Released in January, “Wayfarer” stayed in the Beatport trance top 100 until December. Beatport sales are not always the best indication of a song’s success, but in this case, it can be used to prove just how successful this song was having been used in the sets of Knife Party, Hardwell, Armin van Buuren, Cosmic Gate and so many more for the majority of the year.

19. Just Blaze vs Baauer ft. Jay Z – Higher
Baauer got famous, because the internet, for the spazed out version of the Harlem Shake, but while that was happening, he was making this heater with hip hop producer mainstay Just Blaze, with a few contributing lyrics from a guy who is used to being in the spotlight, Jay Z.

18. Diplo & GTA – Boy Oh Boy
Generally artists save their best releases for big label tracks, but here Diplo & GTA, perhaps unwittingly, delivered what was their most popular track of the year. It is simplistic, but outstanding, taking Missy Elliot’s lyrics from “Lose Control” and meshing them in perfectly. This vine embodies the attitude in this song.

17. Armin van Buuren ft. Trevor Guthrie This Is What It Feels Like (Original + Remixes)
Armin’s crossover single, “This Is It What it Feels Like” became not only a hit with dance music fans (though he took flak from the traditional trancers), but also saw major radio play across the US and the world. The track seemed to only become more popular as the year wore on. The W&W remix brought this track to the festival stage.

16. Mark Knight – Your Love
Quietly, Mark Knight went about his business leading one of the finest dance music labels in the world, Toolroom Knights and had himself a smashing year production-wise. “Your Love” brings together an intoxicating groove with an addictive vocal that as it says “I just can’t get you out of my head”. Nobody has been able to get “Your Love” out of their heads either.

15. W&W & Ummet Ozcan – The Code
You cannot underestimate the impact W&W have had on 2013. The imitators have come from everywhere and their sound has become another overdone aspect of festival house. Ummet Ozcan has followed in their footsteps, moving from trance to a electro-trance sound that has become more and more popular lately, culminating in “Revolution”. “The Code” was the track that really exploded from them this year, taking over WMC and lasted all the way until NYE.

14. TJR – Whats Up Suckaz
Another sub genre getting love, Melbourne Bounce has gone global with its ambassadors Will Sparks and its bald American friend, TJR. “What’s Up Suckaz” brings the bounce to DJ sets all across the world in a way that is palatable to all fans.

13. Sander van Doorn & Mark Knight vs Underworld – Ten
“Your Love” was an individual triumph for Mark Knight, but he found a way to top that with his collab alongside Sander van Doorn and Underworld. Underworld’s floats across the upbeat house grooves and melodies that show the strength of each dynamic producer.

12. Pryda – Power Drive
For what has been another incredible year for the melodic master, “Power Drive” brought out a tougher side of him that we normally see with Cirez D. Power Drive thumps like a 350 foot drive from a sex addicted Tiger Woods and has the grace of Michelle Kwan. Pryda does it best, and he proves that once again.

11. Nicky Romero & Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano ft Fast Eddie – S.O.T.U.
One of the tracks that has appealed to all crowds this year, S.O.T.U. has been played by DJs of all genres on all stages. With an impossibly punchy kick, the simple yet potent track shows the power when percussion is used right. Nicky Romero has taken a wide variety of styles this year from “Symphonica” to “Still The Same Man” to this, but “S.O.T.U.” has to be his crowning achievement this year.
