Perth-born DJ and producer ShockOne is hurtling towards a top five debut on the ARIA Album Chart this week with his new album Universus, according to midweek figures.

While Michael Buble's To Be Loved looks set to hold top spot Shockone's onelove-released Universus is likely to be the top debut this week, if he can hold off reality TV singers. His strong midweek scans have been aided by his appearances on the Groovin The Moo festival, which is currently touring nationally, and his album launch shows. The album has performed strongly on iTunes all week, hitting number one on the Dance and Album rankings.

The main challengers to the top ten outside of ShockOne are primarily reality TV runners-up as Mothers' Day edges closer. X Factor runner-up Jason Owen has his new record Life Is Like A Highway made up of tracks performed on the show, The Voice's second place getter Rachael Leahcar has her record Romantique and Anthony Callea's Thirty will also debut this week.

Snoop Lion's Reincarnated is tracking OK as well, for the interest factor if nothing else.

The ARIA Singles Chart's number one looks sets to go to Daft Punk's Get Lucky single with Pharrell and Nile Rogers (full album review here) after narrowly missing out last week to Passenger's Let Her Go.

Further down Robert Thicke looks to beat his previous peak with new track Blurred Lines (in August 2003 he hit 17 with When I Get You Alone) and there are boosts for Christina Perri's A Thousand Years and Birds Of Tokyo's Laterns after the tracks were performed on The Voice. Interestingly this year the show's biggest chart impact so far has been with the originals of tracks performed on the competition.
