Top 50 dance tracks of 2013

30. Axwell – Center Of The Universe (Original + Remode)
With the breakup of SHM in March, it gave Axwell the chance to finally finish up some of those unreleased tunes that have been burning through his hard drive over the past couple years. The first to get finished up, much to the delight dance music fans everywhere was “Center Of The Universe”, the super melodic tune that is textbook Axwell and we love him so much.

29. DJ Snake ft. Alesia – Bird Machine
Target commercial or not, “Bird Machine” was one of the trap anthems of the year. These three Frenchmen conjured something special when they released “Bird Machine” back in February, putting the world on notice that this would be the year for DJ Snake, and Alesia should be on your radar pronto.

28. Mat Zo – Lucid Dreams
Just when you thought Mat Zo couldn’t get any better, he goes and releases his debut artist album “Damage Control”, displaying the vision, creativity and skill that he has as a producer. As big as “Easy” was, it was released as a single in 2012, so that disqualifies. The whole album is an incredible body of work, but the timeless quality of “Lucid Dreams” that was backed up by massive DJ support lands this at 29 on our list.

27. Kaskade – Atmosphere
The title track from his recently released 9th artist album, Kaskade did something on this track he had never done before: sing. The grammy nominated tune has propelled Kaskade to new heights, even at this point of his career.

26. Hot Natured ft. Anabel Englund – Reverse Skydiving (Original + Shadow Child Remix)
Hot Natured set the mood, but it was Anabel Englund’s crooning vocal that sets this tune apart from so many others. Shadow Child then came in and added his own soothing touch to create a remix that was as big, if not bigger than the original.

25. Dusky – Careless
Just when the Beatport top 10 chart was being dominated by the likes of Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Hardwell and Tiësto, Dusky came storming through to take the top spot. The British duo have been a mainstay on Anjunadeep for some time now, but with “Careless” they were thrust into the dance music spotlight.

24. Dannic – Clobber
The Revealed Records man had a breakout year and “Clobber” was how he kicked it all off. The bouncy horn style became infectious, as it was another sound synonymous with progressive house in 2013.

23. Knife Party – LRAD
Knife Party have been quiet on the production from this year besides their 4 track “Haunted House” EP released in May, but they make each tune count. Though other tracks like “Power Glove” really saw the full force of Knife Party’s style, it was “LRAD” that became the biggest, as one of the most skilled festival tracks made this year.

22. DVBBS & Borgeous – Tsunami
The second REALLY big festival track after “Animals” this year, “Tsunami” exploded the careers of DVBBS and Borgeous. It has been a staple of sets since August, receiving the “ID” treatment from Spinnin’. The unsung hero on this track is The Cataracs who was involved in the production.

21. Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike – Wakanda – 2013 has been the year of the watered down hardstyle kick and unnecessary sub bass. “Wakanda” ushered in that trend in 2013, as the DV & LM tune became a quick favorite to start the year.
