Here is the link to my February chart on Resident Advisor : http://www.residentadvisor.net/dj/tronic/top10?chart=101464
I did a Top 15 because Top 10 couldn't accommodate all the great music. The top 10 in the chart below represents my RA chart. I wanted to make it a little more informative than just a basic chart, I hope you enjoy the new format!
February 2012 Top 15
01) Gorgon City – Odyssey [Black Butter]
Gorgon City is Foamo & RackNRuin. "Odyssey" is an amazing track. I love the vocal and once the bassline kicks in after the breakdown, it blows up. Sounds like an update on speed garage.

02) Hakan Ludvigson – Goodbye feat. Coni [Clubstream Green]
I love this track. The release came with a few remixes, but nothing could touch the magic of the original version. I guess you could call it progressive house – but like the good classic vocal progressive house of 12 years ago, not what they are calling "progressive house" these days.

03) LilRoj – Free Air (JAK remix) [SubSensory]
The JAK remix of Free Air is an amazing progressive tech track that I have been playing a lot.

05) Alex Metric – End of the World (Amtrac remix)
Beautiful version of this track. It plays for a few minutes on a chill bass tip, then the last minute and a half the thing just morphs into this lush vocal progressive house sound. I must have listened to this song about 100 time already. Grab Amtrac's remix free from him on SoundCoud @ http://soundcloud.com/amtrac/alex-metric-charli-xcx-end-of
06) Murray Richardson – Memory Loss (Paul Hardy & McKai remix) [Baker Street]
Great acid tech house track. I have been playing this a lot on the radio and in my club sets.

07) Octave One – I Need Release (Alexander Kowalski remix) [430 West]
I hope if you are reading this you know who Octave One is. A long time techno producer, this track is pure Detroit techno with a beautiful vocal. Part of a full LP of remixes called 'Revisited (Here, There and Beyond). Other remixers on the project include Aril Brikha, Vince Watson, Luke Slater, Ken Ishii and Cari Lekebusch – a partial who's who of techno.

15) Wagon Cookin' – Come Into The Light (Chus & Ceballos remix) [OM]
