January 10, 2021


Welcome back everyone. Tallulah Goodtimes started 2021 with bopper, "Universal Love," topping the chart for a third week in a row. Can she stay on top for a fourth? Keep Reading.
SpekrFreks score yet another Top 10 from their Roaring 2020s album. "Soiree," starts the Top 10 off this week.
Tia Brazda is climbing fast. Her latest banger, "Cabin Fever (Lockdown Remix)," jumps to number 9 in only its second week on the chart.

It also debuts this week at number 24.

High Step Society climb from 9 to 5 with, "No Bad Dreams."
And Caravan Palace spend a sixth nonconsecutive week peaking at number 4 with, "Supersonics." The track peaked at Number 4 in September of 2019 when their album, Chronologic, was first released.  Again last month and of course both weeks of 2021 so far.
Atom Smith and Miss Emmma break their number 5 peak by climbing to 3 with, "Comin' Up Swingin."
And Tape Five jump 6 to 2 with, "Get Down To Luna Park (Manga Shuffle Mix)."
Tony Wellin's collaboration with Alessa Ray, "Lockdown With Me," becomes their first Number 1 each this week. It's waited patiently in the runner-up position for two weeks and finally climbs to Number 1.

Happy New Year everyone. Tallulah Goodtimes ended 2020 with big hit, "Universal Love," topping the chart. Can she stay on top for a third week? Keep Reading.
Alfredo Rey & His Orchestra with Alexandra Miletta start off the Top 10 with classic hit, "Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend." They jump from 19. It's the first Top 10 appearance for the group.

The two talented DJ/Producers joined forces to bring us a little EP called Swing & Bass Bristol To Minneapolis.
