This year, Amsterdam Dance Event tracked the most played artists and songs from many of the biggest parties and clubs.
Using DJ Monitor, over 800 DJ sets at more than 120 venues were monitored with the goal of creating more transparency in the music industry by generating charts.
So, who topped the charts? Perhaps unsurprisingly, the most played artists were the usual big-name EDM jocks, including Martin Garrix, W&W and Calvin Harris, who took the top three slots, respectively. The Most Played EDM Songs reads much the same way, with Harris topping that list.
But ADE also listed the Most Played Underground Songs, with a mix of some of the summer's biggest tunes from our 15 Tracks Ruling Ibiza In 2014 list, including Floorplan's 'Never Grow Old' (Re-Plant), which topped the chart, Patrick Topping's 'Forget', Moderat's remix of DJ Koze's 'Bad Kingdom' – a Cocoon favourite – and the Alan Fitzpatrick remix of I Want You from Trus'me. Other tracks appearing feature the likes of Rødhåd, Recondite, and Hudson Mohake with his 2012 hit 'Chimes' (which we're debating the 'underground' nature of). Check out the full list below.
