Here it is, our very own chart. You may agree with some of the tracks, you may disagree, either way we will be dropping our chart at the beginning of each month (I know its late for september already) and the tracks for you to listen to. We’re not going to throw up tracks we’ve never heard because there’s hype behind them either (i’ve caught a lot of people out doing this). So with out further a do… lets kick it off.
Justin Martin & Ardalan – Mr Spock (Buy)
This track is just straight killing it with all walks of life at the moment. For more information heres Claude Vonstrokes write up on the release.
‘At the young age of just 20 years old, Ardalan from the TCH Dolphin crew in San Jose is
quickly proving himself to be a leader in the next generation of bay area house music. Justin
Martin quickly recognized his talent when Ardalan sent him a 10 minute demo.
After one listen Justin thought the track was genius but needed some additional editing and arrangement work. He took on the project and the outcome was “Mr. Spock.”This dancefloor monster was instantly charted #1 by myself and Jesse Rose as soon as we heard it. It works. For real’
Tiga – Gentle Giant (Martyn’s Heaven rmx) (Download)
Martyn’s remix of Tiga’s Gentle giant, taken from Tiga’s album Ciao! is by far the best remix! The groove is heavily swung and laced with stabbing keys through out and is a pretty slow tempo for the likes of Martyn.
Sebastien Phillip and Dan Caster – Drunkin’ Native (Buy)
There is a Sascha Braemer remix of this, but we personally prefer the original. It sounds very much like a Dirtybird release and will have us dancing for a very long time.
Magnetic Man – The Bug
This isn’t out till October 11th when Skream, Benga and Artwork aka Magnetic Man drop their self titled debut album on Columbia Records. Its a big track and i expect it’ll go massive.
Lorn – Cherry moon
Lorn is from the USA and this track is taken from the LP ‘Nothing Else’ which is out now on FlyLo’s Brainfeeder label.
The Jackson Five – Dancing Machine (Henrik Schwarz Remix) (Download)
I’m a sucker for the funk, and Henrik Schwarz does a nice job of remixing this. Just like his Bill wither’s remix its perfect for the early hours of a night.
The Jellies – Jive baby on a Saturday night
This is a classic from the 80′s or 90′s. It was originally a 300 limited edition vinyl pressing, and recently re-discovered by Optimo. Apparently he played it 7 times in a row at a club in NYC about 2 months ago. Its now getting re-released on Trunk Records tomorrow! (Sept 13th)
Tapesh And Maximiljan – Wide Range (Buy)
Check out the post covering their whole E.P. This track still does it for me, such a killer groove.
Toddla T – Better (Seiji’s Troubleadub) (Download)
Seiji does wonders turning this Toddla track into an old 90′s style house track, reminds me slightly of some of the old M.A.W remixes. You may find it a bit cheesy, but begin grooving to it and its sure to put a big smile on your face.
