The masters of Big Room sound, ID’s, and bootlegs are in the spotlight again! Project 46 has been tagged as one of the top artists to watch in 2012. Their latest project is a bootleg of Fatboy Slim’s Anthem, ‘Praise You’ and Alesso’s ‘Years’. This Anthem reached #1 on Hypem!

We will continue to follow Project46 and you can too. Check out the plethora of Anthems on Soundcloud.

Rightfully so, the vocal remix has re-ignited my initial obsession with this track.  Don’t expect to hear too much of the instrumental mix any more, as the image of crowds upon crowds singing along to this track is in performers minds already.  Coachella Sahara Tent Anthem.

New artists were popping up everywhere throughout this past year, putting pressure on the superstars to keep producing and proving themselves.  Swanky Tunes and Hard Rock Sofa have made Russia relevant on the global scene, Afrojack and Sebastian Ingrosso have willed R3hab and Alesso into the spotlight, and kids like Porter Robinson and Lucky Date are helping the young US electro house/dubstep scene gain some relevancy.  In 2011, the following 3 guys have all raised their track output, but more importantly gained ground tremendously in the airtime and popularity categories.

TOP 3 NEWCOMERS OF 2011

3. TOMMY TRASH | Age: ? | Origin: Australia | Years Producing/DJing: 5

  • Tommy relocated from his home in Australia to focus on producing in London, and it’s proven to be an excellent choice.  He has played on main stages across the globe and been signed to labels as prestigious as Tiesto’s Musical Freedom. Averaging a release every two weeks since the beginning of summer, Trash’s quest for dominance culminates with a spot in Ultra’s lineup on Friday March 23rd.

2. NICKY ROMERO | Age: 23 | Origin: Netherlands | Years Producing/DJing: 6

  • Best known for his remix of Green Velvet’s ‘Flash,’ Nicky showed that he’s multi-dimensional this year, releasing anthem after anthem and collaborating with big time artists such as David Guetta, Bingo Players, and Hardwell. His sound is built for the main stage and his set’s have seen considerable improvement.  A definite player in the 2012 scene.

1. ALESSO | Age: 19 | Origin: Sweden | Years Producing/DJing: 3

  • With the help of Ingrosso, Alessandro Lindblad has risen faster than any of the young stars of 2011. He was virtually unheard of a little over a year ago, but within the last year he’s made his presence known with remixes of Dune’s ‘Heiress of Valentina’, Alex Kenji, Starkillers & Nadia Ali’s ‘Pressure’, and one of the best tracks of 2011, ‘Calling’.  His biggest solo original release ‘Raise Your Head’ came just this past November. Alesso just completed a tour opening up for Seb, but it won’t be long before he’ll be calling the shots and venues will be lining up to book him as a headliner.

Honorable Mentions: Swanky Tunes, R3hab, Mord Fustang, Dillon Francis, Porter Robinson, Arty

We already posted dBerrie’s remix, but there are a few more editions that you need to add to your library.  Our two favorite young guns, Alesso and Nicky Romero provide great mixes but the winner in our opinion is Frenchman Arno Cost’s progressive edit.  Each one worth a try…

Alesso continues his break out year of arena Anthems. ‘Raise Your Head’ has a darker heavier house vibe then his previous releases, ‘Good Love’, ‘Calling’ and ‘Pressure’.
Its a rocker for sure, especially when the drum sample kicks in around 2:50. Prepare to be wowed!
