The Swedish House Mafia guys have become masters of making giant festival anthems, and this remix has definitely been one of those this past year. Having heard this played live by Kaskade, Alesso, and Steve Angello of SHM himself, as well as many other producers throughout the year, has definitely helped this track earn a top spot. Coldplay has been making an impact in the house music scene this year as well, with a remix of this same track also coming from Avicii, as well as the remixes of Paradise by Fedde Le Grand and Tiesto.
4. Mark Knight vs. Florence and The Machine – You’ve Got The Love (Mark Knight Remix)
Mark Knight’s remix of the huge Florence and The Machine hit You’ve Got The Love has without a doubt been one of the biggest tracks of the year. After first hearing this live, there was no question that this song would be huge. Having remained number 1 on Beatport for a good part of the summer after it’s release, there is no surprise that this track would be one of the biggest of the year. The vocals of Florence Welch and the amazing house beats by Mark Knight work perfectly.
3. Avicii – Levels
Avicii has been one of the biggest producers of the year, so there is no surprise that his biggest hit Levels would be ranked high on the list. After first hearing Levels all the way back in the beginning of the summer of 2011 and only just recently getting an official release in October, as well as having heard it played by almost every progressive house producer there is, Levels is well deserving of a top spot. Remixes of this huge track only recently came out, and it has even found commercial fame with a remix by rapper Flo Rida, but yet the original mix has already become a classic,
2. Nadia Ali, Starkillers, & Alex Kenji – Pressure (Alesso Remix)
Swedish producer Alesso is fairly new to the house music scene, but was called one of the top new producers of 2011 by many different artists in this year’s DJ Mag Top 100 poll. Not surprisingly, his remix of the track Pressure has also been called one of the greatest tracks of the year in the same poll. This track, like Levels, has also been played by so many of the world’s greatest producers, like Tiesto, Kaskade, and Swedish House Mafia, to name a few. This track became huge around the world, and has received mainstream attention on commercial radio as well, but not nearly to the extent of the number one track of the year…
1. Swedish House Mafia – Save The World
There is no question that Save The World has been one of the hugest tracks of the year. Swedish House Mafia broke into the mainstream music scene with this track, and it was played over radio waves across the U.S. since it’s release. Not only does that make it deserving enough of the top spot, but this track has also been played and remixed by famous producers as well as new producers throughout every genre of house music. Whether it’s Knife Party or Zedd’s electro remix, AN21 & Max Vangeli or Alesso’s progressive house remix, this track has been getting played by everyone; this track has even been mixed into tech house and minimal sets. No matter what style of house music is being played at the club, this is a track everyone knows the words to when it comes on. From it’s reveal during Ultra Music Festival 2011, this track has caught the ears and attention of house music fans. Before it’s official release, people were already singing the words along side Steve Angello, Axwell, and Sebastian Ingrosso at their own gigs, as they will be doing with this track for a long time.
