Avicii beat the previous fastest-selling single record this year by Robin Thicke

Swedish DJ and producer Avicii has shot to the top of the singles chart today with the fastest-selling single of the year, Wake Me Up.

It sold nearly 267,000 copies in its first week on sale, beating the previous record by Robin Thicke's Blurred Lines in May by about 76,000.

It is also the biggest single-week sale since The Justice Collective's He Ain't Heavy topped 2012's Christmas chart with sales of more than 269,000.

Avicii is also known as Tim Bergling.

He first topped the UK charts in February with I Could Be The One with Dutch DJ Nicky Romero.

The 23-year-old DJ had two other top five hits in 2011 - Collide with Leona Lewis and Levels, which was later sampled by Flo Rida for his 2012 number one hit Good Feeling.

Wake Me Up pushed Blurred Lines featuring TI and Pharrell Williams down to two, while John Newman's Love Me Again is at three, Icona Pop's I Love It featuring Charli XCX is at four, and Will.I.Am's Bang Bang is at five.

After a three month hiatus, Finnish super-producer Joonas Hahmo is back with a summertime vengeance. “GT 83,” Hahmo’s newest release on his own label, Hahmo Recordings, is a melody-driven, high-octane anthem. The chaps from Above & Beyond have supported the track already, and this supercharged tune is packed with energy and sunny vibes — perfect for driving along the coastline with the windows down, or adding a little extra flavor to a DJ set.

Kill Paris – Falling in Love Again feat. Marty Rod & Alma (Original Mix)

While the rest of the electronic world is intent on the revival of disco, Kill Paris is making a strong case for the adoption of R&B. Although Kill Paris showcased a range of styles and influences on his To a New Earth EP, soul music is where his heart lies. His newest original seamlessly combines the deep yearning of R&B with modern midtempo tropes. With sensual vocal accompaniment from Marty Rod & Alma, “Falling in Love Again” inevitably recalls Spandau Ballet’s classic love-jam “Truth.” Make no mistake, this is baby-makin’ bass music in its purest form.

UK stats show highest market share since 2006 - Dance Music Rising

According to a recent data released by the BPI (British Phonographic Industry), dance music is at its most popular in the UK since 2006. The buzzing genre now has a market share of 16.3%, third behind the two largest shareholders (pop and rock, respectively). Daft Punk’s explosion back into the scene in 2013 is an obvious cause for such change, but in the last six months no fewer than ten dance tracks have sold more than a quarter of a million copies.

In April, Calvin Harris beat out Michael Jackson’s record for most top ten hits from a single album for 18 Months and Disclosure and Rudimental’s albums topped the charts in May and June as well. Dance music single sales were up by 19.1%, while album sales sprung by a very healthy 33.7%.

The Bloody Beetroots feat. Paul McCartney and Youth - Out of Sight

Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo, alias The Bloody Beetroots has always been an anomaly amidst the cocooned trends and coddled pedigrees of dance music. After fits and starts in Italian garage-punk bands, Rifo launched The Bloody Beetroots in 2007 and over the next few years, he would win the support of electro house heavyweights Etienne de Crecy and Alex Gopher in Europe and Dim Mak’s Steve Aoki stateside. On Rifo’s watch, anything’s not only possible – but from the sheer vastness of sounds and media that have materialized – probable as well. 

The video of "Out of Sight", directed by Charlie Lightening, sees The Bloody Beetroots in his natural habitat, rocking out and orchestrating a haunting choir – with an appearance by the legendary Paul McCartney himself! The Bloody Beetroots will release the forthcoming album HIDE on September 17th (Ultra Music).

Four decks of software control, a four-channel mixer and total command over all effects: Meet 4TRAK, the ultimate controller for TRAKTOR DJ software. 4TRAK lays out a vast assembly of tactile controls in front of you, putting a playground of capability at your fingertips. Mix anything: 4TRAK's built-in four-channel mixer allows you to bring turntables, microphones, MP3 players and more into the mix. Tweak everything: High-resolution platters, exclusive Strip Search needle-drop technology and an expansive 12-knob FX KOMMAND CONSOLE give you more precise control over TRAKTOR than ever before.


At the heart of 4TRAK is a premium-quality fully independent four-channel mixer that can be used with or without a computer, making 4TRAK one of the most versatile TRAKTOR controllers in the world. 4TRAK has a full range of input and outputs for connecting virtually any device: RCA inputs on each channel and four line-level inputs with two switchable to phono and two switchable to mic. Connect almost any external music source like turntables, CD players and microphones, and mix them in seamlessly with tracks from your software.


4TRAK offers unparalleled control over your effects and filters. With the FX KOMMAND CONSOLE, you have top-level access to effect and filter parameters, giving you incredible performance capabilities. Layer effects, adjust filters, and mix and match both of them in ways that were previously impossible.
4TRAK's FX KOMMAND CONSOLE gives you two decks of effects controls, FX1 and FX2, plus four detented filter knobs for each of 4TRAK's four channels. Both the FX1 and FX2 decks give you three controls that can be assigned to the effects of your choice. Each FX deck also features time division controls, allowing you to match your effects to a track's BPM instantly, and giving you continuous control over an effect's pacing.


Each of 4TRAK’s channels has an input selector, so you can instantly transition between controlling TRAKTOR's four decks and your external sources. Connect two CD players, two turntables, two mics—the combinations are endless. Grab tracks or loops from your music library one moment, then your turntable, iPod, or a mic the next. 4TRAK makes it possible to take music from virtually any source and bring it into your mix.

Erick Morillo & Eddie Thoneick feat. Skin - If This Ain't Love [Subliminal Records]

With legendary Skunk Anansie singer Skin taking control of the vocal line, and the undisputable touch of label boss Erick Morillo and regular partner in crime Eddie Thoneick on production duty, Subliminal’s springtime big hitter ‘If This Ain’t Love’ receives its official release – rather appropriately – on Valentine’s Day.
A heady combination of dance floor dynamite and raunchy, sex infused rock, the track continues the winning pairing of Morillo and Thoneick, whose previous collaborations ‘Live Your Life’ and ‘Stronger’ dominated global airwaves and taste-maker charts across 2010 and 2011.
From the outset, ‘If This Ain’t Love’ is in a class of its own. The unmistakable voice of Skin provides an almost ethereal, euphoric dynamic against Morillo and Thoneick’s pumping house set-up. Soaring across thundering guitar riffs and uplifting piano chords, the singer’s emotive performance lifts the track higher and higher as the beats caress the bass lines underneath her.
The Sympho Nympho mix puts a more prominent dance edge on the track, with Erick, Harry Romero and Jose Nunez flexing their more-than-considerable musical muscles, perfecting the original with enough energy to rock the biggest rooms, stadiums and festivals on the planet.
The video is set in a futuristic world, with dazzling visuals; ever-iconic Skin is bought to life by the power of music under the watchful eyes of computerized masters Morillo and Thoneick.
Erick Morillo & Eddie Thoneick ft. Skin – ‘If This Ain’t Love’ is released on February 14th 2012 on Subliminal Records worldwide.
