END: the DJ brings the best hard club music experience featuring the best and latest in underground dance beats, moving crowds on the floor and on airwaves in the global dance circuit. You’ll also hear the latest works from END throughout each beat-driven mix!
There have been some fantastic club tracks in a variety of electronic music styles that are coming up on the horizon to kick off a fantastic new year of music. Let’s take a look:
Cristian Myt – “Kurte Tu Fantasy”- Login Records
Each time I hear this True to Nature EP, my favourite track changes; it’s THAT much of a solid piece of work—so ask me if this track is the best tomorrow, I might name you one of the other four. The low beats are haunting yet heavy, the melody is clubby yet melodic. It is straight up Dark Techno with Hardcore elements. Login Records has hit us with the first awesome release of the year!
Dimensional Explosion – “Phonophobia” – [unsigned]
This would be the best track of the month overall if it wasn’t new to me and to those who follow Andre W. aka E.I.D (his former project). Andre has been cultivating Dimensional Explosion this past year and it’s time everyone finally gets to hear what he’s been up to—and as always, I’m championing his work; a ‘crunchy’ yet melodic Noise sound at its Experimental finest. It’s INSANE that this project is unsigned. This should change very soon!
Claes Rosen – “Starlight (Blood Groove & Kikis Remix)” – Green Mono Music
When the newly released compilation from the Green Mono label was sent to me, I was honestly a tad bit skeptical. Though I appreciate all styles of club music, as a personal listener I had become very weary of some of the directions variations of Progressive & other lighter styles of music had gone some years ago. Much of it became a bit too pop-formulated for my taste. More hooks, less depth; yet here was some new music presented to me, I had to check it out…and am very satisfied with what was thumping out of my speakers. This track has the kind of depth and substance I’ve missed out of these more rhythmic styles of EDM. Thanks for bringing me back, G.M.M.!
BlakOPz – “Long Live the New Flesh” – DWA
This track hits you in the fucking face. Love this. It’s a progression of the Harsh EBM sound; I wasn’t sure if the style had any more methods to throw at us and then BlakOPz showed us the way. Throw this on a dance floor and watch everyone go crazy.
Dani’el – “The Music” – Conzoom Records
Great Synth Pop track, the melody and vocals are very moving and textured. All of the tracks from the album The Book should be heard.
Orquesm – “Dikke Pret” – Login Records
The Login label charts again in the top picks with this track off the new Stampot EP from Orquesm. Certain tracks can hit the clubs like a sonic wave and roll over you- this one doesn’t disappoint!
Doc Trashz – “Brainwashing” – Trashz Recordz
Known for some of the best new dirty and glitchy Electro sound, Trashz Recordz has been a steady source of music to break ‘ya’ neck to for a little while now. Doc Trashz, the label’s founder, releases his own monster of a track and it is beat driven! Not meant for tiny speakers or ear buds or you miss some of the intricate work that went into this one.
Ben’Yala – “From Citta To Neapolis” – ETT Recordings
ETT Recordings storms out the gate this New Year with this driving massive track. You’ll love the way this builds towards the break and then holds you to the club floor. Loving this one.
[product] – “The Blind (iVardensphere Remix)” – Vendetta Music
Somehow iVardensphere found the time while creating his new album to put his signature stamp on a new track from [product]’s new album. I would say iVS has to sleep sometime, yet you wouldn’t know it from the great production work on this remix. Complements [product]’s sound nicely!
Flatline – “Your Love” – Compactonez Records
Flatline’s new album hit in late December and this standout track has garnered its own official video (now up on YouTube) which helps to spotlight even more the great work on this track. It’s a very driven track with great vocals & lyrics. Great new EBM mover!
That’s not all. Check out these other noteworthy releases to move to:
Novikoff – “Addictive (DJ Generous Remix)” – Green Mono Music
Another track from G.M.M.’s recently released compilation. The flow on this track is addictive; I couldn’t stop moving even while trying to sit still. Great remix on this one.
Mark Bester feat. Love Dimension – “Love Is Good” – ETT Recordings
ETT continues its label dominance by releasing another awesome track to the masses. The label seems to know the talent they seem to have in Love Dimension’s vocals, which wrap smoothly around the production work of this track by Mark Bester. Yet another high quality ETT club track!
Groovetonic – “Boom Chacka (Leon Blaq Remix)” – Supermarket Records
This is a driving floor filler from the Supermarket. Love the build up!
Prismism – “Numbers” – Trashz Recordz
One of the dirtiest, robotic Electro tracks I’ve heard in a while! The beats on this seriously kick.
Essonita feat. Love Dimension – “All We Need (Denis Sender Remix)” – ETM Recordings
ETM, sister label of ETT, takes the talented vocals of Love Dimension to greater heights with this deeply moving track.
Dates to be announced soon as I hit the tour road once more in the U.S. and Canada in support of the upcoming Infacted Recordings mix album, the movie soundtrack to Cleric and Industrial Club Sessions on radio, always bringing you the new shit to stomp to!

Another great year of music! Making this list was nearly impossible- each song on this list is outstanding! Check them out and keep them in your own playlist. Keep an eye out for their other works!
Cold In May- The Reason (Motion City Lights Remix)
The lyrics and vocal delivery, the superb remix all equal out to a perfect melody. This is an amazing one.
Terrolokaust- Falling Away From Me
This fantastic cover’s hard beat and style has been so very well received with each play.
Ice Upon Fire- Hypnotic Disorder (Gary Afterlife Remix)
ETT has ever the most textured electronic dance tracks, this one being among the best of their releases. Truly epic!
Stahlnebel & Black Selket- Dead Silence
Once the children choir kicks in, you know there’s a powerful force at work on this track. A great piece of new work from these EBM titans.
Cryogenic Echelon- Pandora (feat. Eugene Nesci)
The production work and vocals grab you from the first note. A unique blend of moving lyrical content with vocal style make this one a standout.
This keeps bodies on the club floor and gets the mood escalating quickly. One of the anthems of the year.
Beat Tempest- Hot Bedroom
This guarantees to move everyone once the track is thrown down. Really solid piece of work!
Snog- Everything Is Under Control
Arguably one of the most catchiest tunes of the year and once it’s on your mind (along with the video), you’ll be humming this tune for hours.
Chainreactor- Wanna Break Out
One of the many tracks from Chainreactor’s standout new album. Noisy and artistic make this one a killer combo.
Love?- I Walk Alone
I love it when a track is so very moving while staying textured and thoughtful. The rhythmic tones and vocal delivery work extremely well.
Torul- The Fall
Great song and a great video, this song’s melody oozes tragedy. Definitely one to listen to!
Covenant- Last Dance
Covenant returned with a vengeance this year and this track is a testament to their legacy.
Hope Estheim- Sleepwalking Societies (Feat. Redux)
From the same artist behind Cryogenic Echelon, the collaboration with the vocalist on this track is fantastic.
The People’s Republic of Europe- Warrior
Raise your fists and stomp your feet to this one. TPROE unleashed this track earlier this year and has been a staple on club floors.
Mental Discipline- WDYWFM (feat. Spektralized) (Assemblage 23 Remix)
From the wonderfully produced “Fall 2 Pieces” album. With the collaboration of MD, Spektralized and A23, this is truly a dream track.
X-Fusion- I Am Your God
Another anthem of 2013, this harsh builder has been a great addition to everyone’s playlist.
Pride and Fall- Hollow ([:SITD:] Remix)
Dependent Music’s compilations are always outstanding having unique versions and reworks to the label’s releases. This remix is haunting.
Dark Age- Afterlife (Eisbrecher Club Cut)
Eisbrecher took this track and made it truly epic. The heavy tones force bodies to move.
Diskonnekted- Yesteryears (Neuroticfish mix)
Neuroticfish taking on a track by Diskonnekted = awesome. This is but a preview to what we’ll be hearing from both artists in 2014.
Sebastian Komor- Body Move (Club Mix)
One of the best producers in modern EBM and Industrial dance now self releases on his own label- and this first release is a moving sampler of the masterpieces to follow.
This track is a driving force, one of the hardest movers from the great “Warning” album.
Ohm- Car Crash
From the arenas of Front Line Assembly and Noise Unit comes a truly artistic collaboration from their self-titled album. This is but one of the tracks- check this one out.
Juno Reactor- Trans Siberian
A new album from J.R. was very much welcomed by all and did not disappoint. This is a great track from among the many highly produced works.
Ginger Snap5- Polaris
The first GS5 full length album and wow, did everyone love it! Melodic EBM with synth and trance elements, the personal lyrics; “Polaris” is a great embodiment of the entire album.
ESA- The Shape of Hate to Come
The new ESA album is fantastic, moving and destructive! Everyone loves the production work and beats.
The production on Armystrial’s release from Login Records has almost a dark machine-like feel to the techno and minimal elements.
