Sadly, Alan is currently undergoing chemotherapy for cancer and needs financial help in order to cover his treatment and living expenses. A GoFundMe page has been set up by Alan’s close friend Joey Madonia, aka DJ Heaven. As Joey explains, “This man has given his life to underground dance culture and we are asking for your help to give that back to him now when he needs it most. 100% of all donations will be given directly to Alan T.”

The end of year lists always prove an interesting time here at Traxsource, with so many musical minds coming together to evaluate the sounds of the year, fuelled using a combination of sales data, stats and old-fashioned A&R intuition to navigate the huge volume of releases and weigh up the dance music pioneers alongside the up-and-coming talent.
From its roots in the discos of the 1970s, House music has had a great history of songs and vocalists – a tradition that has continued to the present day. The Traxsource Top 100 Vocalists of 2017 has been a pleasure to compile, as we got to re-listen to some of the best vocal performances and productions of the year. This category is all about contemporary singers – we know there are plenty of classic and legendary vocalists that get remixed and reworked every year – but for this list, we’re talking about active vocalists, working in the House Music scene now. So come with us as we present the songs and the singers: our Top Vocalists of 2017.
When it comes to timeless, emotive dance music, no other genre comes close to the irresistible style, musicality and groove of Deep House.
