1. Michael Jackson – Off The Wall

I’m pretty sure this was the first album I ever bought on vinyl (a good few years after it came out). Always loved the vibe of this record, feel good party style with a message. The production still sounds amazing and the writing is still better than most.

2. Sister Sledge – Lost In Music

Such a great and timeless record. My favourite work from Nile Rogers. The lyrics say it all really.

3. KORT ft Sejal – Here & Now (full vocal mix)

My favourite work to date. Was a big labour of love to make this record. My first ever production that is made up of about 90% live instruments. 

 

4. D.C LaRue – Cathedrals (Joey Negro Extended Disco Mix)

Love the original of this but Dave brings it right up to date and absolutely smashed it. That bass line!!

5. Stargard – Wear It Out

This one has been sampled a couple times to great effect. One of my friends played this to me for the first time when I was gigging in Slovenia a few years back .

7. Lou Rawls – You’ll Never Find Another Love Like Mine

Super smooth and as cool as they come. Amazing voice.

8. Teddy Pendergrass – You Can’t Hide From Yourself

I played this at our Tropical Velvet label party on Saturday night and it ‘went off’. Still sounds great after 40 years!

9.  Roy Ayres – Everybody Loves The Sunshine

Such a beautiful piece of music. Even in Hip Hop you can hear the influence.

10. Marvin Gaye – A Funky Space Reincarnation

This is my favourite Marvin Gaye track. My older cousin introduced this to me when were a lot younger at some after party at house, very early in the morning. Really funky with proper crazy lyrics.
