Mason ( almost ) dominates Beatport charts

Mason's re-release of the classic Exceeder has almost made a clean sweep of the Beatport chart.

The track is currently at No.2 in the overall chart and hasn't budged for a week. It is still topping the Tech house genre also.

Despite offering to throw himself into a canal in his native Amsterdam, Mason still can't quite make the No.1 spot.

How very annoying!

Mason's Exceeder hits the Beatport chart

The release of new remixes of Mason's classic 'Exceeder' has taken the Beatport charts by storm this week.

Umek and Mike Vale's reinterpretation of the electro house anthem has hit the No.1 spot in Beatport's Tech House chart and is currently riding at No.8 in the overall Beatport chart.

We've decided that we'll throw ourselves in the local canal  if the tune hits the overall No.1 spot, so might be worth buying a copy!
