Brussels/London – 29th August 2013
 
The Nielsen Music/IMPALA radio charts for the second quarter of 2013 have been published, showcasing the diversity of independent music in Europe. The Top 20 features an eclectic mix of European musical talent, including chart mainstays Adele and Cro.
 
The Dutch trance DJ Armin Van Buuren (feat. Trevor Guthrie) makes a splash in this quarter’s charts, entering straight into the number 2 spot. Among the other top new entries are Scottish band Texas, German Soul and R&B artist Xavier Naidoo and London rapper Wretch 32 (feat. Shakka).
 
The Top 10 Climbers Chart shows French singer Zaz’s outstanding rise from 97 to 13, while similarly impressive leaps have been made by Mastiksoul (feat. David Anthony & Taylor Jones), Caro Emerald and DJ Antoine.
 
Helen Smith, Executive Chair, IMPALA commented “We would like to thank Nielsen for helping us with the launch of these very first pan-European independent radio charts, which enable us not only to highlight the most successful indie artists but also the new entries and best climbers each quarter."

Background
These airplay charts are part of IMPALA's bid to promote the brand of European independent music. This project, for the first time ever, monitors the success of independent music with dedicated pan-European charts. Produced by Nielsen Music as official charts provider for IMPALA, these charts bring increased coverage of independent artists' successes, addressing both the requirements of the business for information and consumers' needs for awareness and exposure. Putting a spotlight on the artists' work and the labels that make it happen benefits the whole industry.
 
 
About IMPALA
IMPALA was established in April 2000 to represent independent music companies. 99% of Europe’s music companies are SMEs. Known as the “independents”, they are world leaders in terms of innovation and discovering new music and artists - they produce more than 80% of all new releases. SMEs also produce 80% of Europe’s jobs. Their potential is enormous but is hampered by complex barriers to trade and severe market access problems.
 
IMPALA has its own award schemes to help promote cultural diversity and new talent and highlight the artistic contribution of independent music. IMPALA award winning artists include Efterklang, Adele, Radiohead, Arctic Monkeys, Carla Bruni, Manu Chao, Corneille, Katie Melua, Franz Ferdinand, The Prodigy, Placebo and Ibrahim Ferrer (Buena Vista Social Club).
