Kerri Chandler – Atmospheric Beats
For me this is one of kerri Chandler’s best tracks …absolutely timeless.
The XX – Angels
I could of picked any track off this album but ‘Angles’ is the one you can just kick back and forget all your problems, such a chilled track packed with emotion.
Masters At Work – To Be In Love
Having house music pushed onto me at such an early age by uncle crafted my passion for what i do today, this masters at work track was one of the tracks I remember so well growing up.
Liem – If Only
This is one track I could have on repeat all day, it brings nothing but happiness when I listen to it.
A track that has been in my collection for years …perfect for sunny mornings.
Danism – Love The Way (Crazy P Remix)
This track for me is a great remix from Crazy P, if it be a closing tune or getting lost in your thoughts with this in the background.
Armand Van Helden – You Don’t Know Me
Growing up I had a lot of influential tracks and was hard to pick one, but this one was one that got me addicted to house as a child.
Wadsworth – Lime & Pink
This is a track that holds so many memories for me and a group of friends, this track will sit high up there for a long time.
Deadmau5 – Strobe
The whole 10 minutes of this song is a masterpiece, a track that takes me on a whole roller coaster of emotion, one of those tracks where you feel all weird inside with happiness & opens your mind.
Alicia Myers – I Want To Thank You (Earl Jeffers Edit)
I had to include this track, I was at an event with the wife lost in the music and this tune came on and we both instantly loved the vocal and had us hooked ever since.
Lee Jeffrey – Disconnection EP (Griffintown Records)
Griffintown Records stride on with another faultless house EP, this time from Lee Jeffrey featuring a fine remix from Rich Wakley. This solid label comes from the people behind Mile End and is one that supports the best house producers out there. UK star Jeffrey is one of those producers and has established himself and his sound on respected labels like Cr2, VIVa and MadTech. He is resident at long running night Deja Vu—which also gives its name to his own label—and has played everywhere from Mint Festival to Elrow, so is a proven player in the house scene. Opening his account here is the rock solid ‘Disconnecton,’ which has rolling kicks and sharp hi hats setting the mood before big skewed synths and tumbling bass bring the funk. A classic sounding vocal amps things up further, meaning this one is sure to get hands in the air and dancefloors writhing. Remixing is another artist with house music in his blood, and that’s Rich Wakley, a regular Beatport Chart topper and globe-trotting DJ with credits on Off, Mile End, Avotre, Suara & Roush and support from Radio 1 regularly incoming. His version is quicker and more urgent, with huge hi hat ringlets and energetic stabs amping up the energy levels and really blowing the roof off.
Jeffrey then offers the lush ‘Night Cry’ which takes things down a notch with a smooth, warm and driving deep house cut that oozes soul. Again great vocal samples add a sense of timeless appeal and this is another one to get the floor going crazy. The jazzy ‘Jack’s Place’ rounds out his rich EP with great chords, busy drums and a late night sense of colour and cool that comes finished with irresistible sax stabs.
