CALVIN HARRIS FT FLORENCE WELCH – SWEET NOTHING

October 2012

Weeks on chart: 10+

Peak position:  1

The second entry for both artists and my favourite of the two by a whisker.  Massive fan of Calvin Harris & it’s good to see him having so much more success than other lesser contemporaries (Not naming names, but you know who you are EXAMPLE) 😉

DJ FRESH – GOLD DUST

November 2012

Weeks on chart: 6+

Peak position:  22

The original version of this was actually DJ Fresh’s first ever UK hit back in 2010.  Since then he has gone on to have two number ones including the Rita Ora featured “Hot Right Now” which this year became the first ever drum ‘n’ bass tune to top the UK charts (He actually pipped Rudimental to this accolade but they have their revenge by appearing higher in my list ;)…You’ll have to wait to find out where!) ………Anyway, Gold Dust got a going over by Shy FX, and Ms Dynamite was added into the mix to make this a proper bit of TUUUUNAGE!!!

FLO RIDA FT SIA – WILD ONES

Feburary 2012

Weeks on chart: 28

Peak position:  4

A massive year for Flo Rida with a number 1 hit and three other top 5 singles.  This was the pick of the bunch in my opinion.  A hypnotic beat, generic rap but all topped off with the sublime vocals of Aussie Sia Furler.  I’ve been a fan of her previous work with the band Zero 7 for over a decade and it’s hard to believe she finally had her mainstream breakthrough this year…….She not only also provided the vocals for David Guetta’s number 1 smash “Titanium”, but also co-wrote another 2012 number 1, which will be appearing in the top ten of my list…………….You have a whole 24 hours to wait before I reveal all…….What a tease! 😉

DRAKE FT THE WEEKND – CREW LOVE

July 2012

Weeks on chart:  6

Peak position:  37

I love almost everything Drake produces.  This time last year he probalbly would have been at number one on my list for his collaboration with Rihanna, “Take Care”.  This tune is just pure chill and is a taste of what’s to come in 2013 for the super-hyped The Weeknd.

FLORENCE & THE MACHINE FT CALVIN HARRIS – SPECTRUM (SAY MY NAME)

July 2012

Weeks on chart:  25+

Peak position:  1

According to Calvin Harris, Florence Welch refuses any offers of collaborations…..He must be pretty special than considering he got two out of her in the space of a few months!  This features the usual string arrangements of a typical Florence tune aided by the Scot DJ’s production work.

GOTYE FT KIMBRA – SOMEBODY THAT I USED TO KNOW

January 2012

Weeks on chart:  51+

Peak position:  1

The biggest selling song of 2012 with 1.3 million sold to date and it’s still in the top 100 after 51 weeks!  Half Belgian/half Aussie Wouter “Wally” De Backer sensibly just goes by his stage name of Gotye and teamed up with Kimbra for this unusual collaboration.

MARTIN SOLVEIG – THE NIGHT OUT

June 2012

Weeks on chart:  2

Peak position:  36

The French DJ’s 2012 single faired a lot worse than his huge 2010 hit “Hello”, only just creeping into the top 40 for a week in June.  Ranks much higher in my list. FACT ALERT: Solveig is one of the few DJ’s who also sings on his own tunes….and pretty good too. Listen yourself.

SWEDISH HOUSE MAFIA FT JOHN MARTIN – DON’T YOU WORRY CHILD

October 2012

Weeks on chart:  11+

Peak position:  1

The final track ever from the biggest clique in house music and they are going out on a high.  The rave keyboard hook meshes with what I can only describe as one of the campest vocals I’ve ever heard on a dance record! (Check out the second verse in particular @2.06 in the video)….Camp, but also sang to perfection.  A great vocal from John Martin.

MUMFORD & SONS – I WILL WAIT

September 2012

Weeks on chart:  15+

Peak position:  12

The big question was could Mumford & Sons follow up their excellent first album with a second to match?  Going by the evidence of this first single to be taken from “Babel”, the verdict is most definitely a YES! Typically Mumford, typically great.

M83 – MIDNIGHT CITY

January 2012

Weeks on chart:  12

Peak position:  34

The French acts first & only UK hit is obviously inspired by the 80’s including the Steve Norman type sax solo at the back end.  Infectious vocal riff throughout.
