European Border Breakers Chart 24 November 2017

Two months before the European Border Breakers Chart was officially introduced at the 2016 Eurosonic Noorderslag conference, we started testing the chart that we had thought out and built in the months before. We published the first Top 100, under the radar, exactly two years ago, on 27 November 2015. Two years and many interesting features later, some exciting developments are about to be rolled out.

But now, we present you with the latest chart, that features six brand new tracks, some of which you have already read about on Carte Blanche Music. This week’s highest entry is for German singer Nico Santos, whose Rooftop (in at #49) embraces the same musical mix as Rag β€˜n’ Bone Man, for instance. One of my personal favourites is the groove debut single of Davey Newington’s band Boy Azooga, Face Behind Her Cigarette (#55; pictured). Thanks to Alma, Dusk Till Dawn is twice in the chart: Zayn’s original (featuring Sia) holds on to the top spot, but the Finnish singer’s cover, recorded for BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge, enters at #56. Another debut single, Human – Higher, demands the #64 position. If the title of their hit is anything to go by, the Swedish pop collective is destined to rise next week. One Rizla by Shame is new at #93, and finally Younger x Endor – Give It Up breaks into the chart at #98 this week. A great remake of Lee Dorsey’s 1969 original.

For the complete Top 100, click the β€˜EBBChart’ tab in the top menu of this blog (loading of the PDF may take a little while). More charts (like the Tips, ranking the tracks that are on their way to the Top 100), are available at, where you can listen to all of the tracks and watch their videos as well.
