Michael Jackson – Black Or White
Everyone knows Michael Jackson…Obviously, for me he had to be on this list, not only because he’s one of my biggest influences, but also because I remember when I heard for the first time music from Michael and I was wowed with it. I was amazed with that detail, clear and crispy sound with a fantastic creativity. This track I remember playing it over and over again.
Pink Floyd – Shine On You Crazy Diamond (Parts I-V)
Unlike separated Tracks, I can easily choose my favorite album. Dark Side of the Moon from Pink Floyd. It is a serious problem to choose a track from that album so I will take this opportunity to choose my favorite track outside of the Dark Side of the moon LP. From the Wish You Were Here album, this one is Simply genius.
Rouge Mécanique – Cosi Cosi – Edit Service Special Delivery
Even in electronic music I enjoy some kind of intro, kind of a warmup or buildup to make you get in the track mood. This one is also a great exemple of that.
Gritty and spooky. Excellent work here. One of a kind.
Todd Terje – Snooze 4 Love – Running Back
Been playing it a lot. Maybe one of the records that I played more times and in different environments in a club or in home so…it says a lot of how much I enjoy this one.
Âme – Fiori (Shut Up And Dance! Updated)
This one is an Epic track. Great job here from Âme.
Recondite – Cleric [Dystopian 003]
This track amazed me at the first time for it’s simplicity…with a precision engineering and with a glistening lead melody it’s impossible not to like this track.
Agoria – Hélice
Definitely one of my favorites right now and I’v already added it to my list of Favorites from the last years. Simple and Heavy as I like!
Underground Sound Of Lisbon – So Get Up
Underground Sound of Lisbon was a project created by Dj Vibe ( Tó Pereira ) and Rui da Silva earlly in 1993. So Get Up was a tremendous success and for sure a big influence for me too…not only for this track but also for their careers and inspirations as dj’s. Both, as a duo and individually they are responsible for some of the best party’s in Portugal between 90’s and 2010.
Jeff Mills – The Bells (original mix)
I’ve not been always a big fan of electronic music to be honest but there’s a bunch of tracks that changed my mind…this is one of the ones responsible for that. The Bells becomes a Classic fast!
Baciotti – Black Jack (S. Santiago Version)
Massive track. What can I say about this one…
Loreto The Finder EP (Lisbon Bunker)
Lisbon Bunker is a brand new label that will marry the old with the new, the established and the upcoming, always with a focus on electronic music that is impassioned and creative. The first EP comes from a Portuguese producer named Loreto, and it is his first fantastic foray into the world, inspired by a lifetime devoted to music. Loreto, like many, first became fascinated with music, DJ culture, buying decks and partying as a youth. He turned his hobby into something more serious and soon picked up gigs at seminal Portuguese clubs like Lux. After completing his studies he then headed to the internationally famous Berklee Academy of Music, in Boston, to study music production and now we hear the first fruits of his labour with this EP, which marries subtle Detroit tropes with rhythms focussed on the dancefloor. Made from proper hardware and analogue synths and thus with a vintage feel, the excellent ‘Finder’ kicks things off. It is nine minutes of rubbery, burrowing, tightly coiled techno that weaves its way into your brain. Warm, soul infused synths rise from the centre of the track and as the pressure increases and the synth lines grow more wild and frazzled, you cannot fail to be swept away. The expertly executed ‘Payback’ is deep and warm, cavernous and heady, with searchlight like pads beaming across the horizon and hunched, forceful drums doing their thing down low. Industrial and bleak yet inviting, this is another connoisseur joint. Lastly, the seductive ‘Smiguel’ pairs more stripped back drums and roomy atmospheres with tantalising synths that ripple up and down the scale. It’s heavy, brooding stuff with a real sense of depth and is sure to trip out some intimate back room in a club.
