Ben Westbeech – Hang Around (Karizma Kaytronic Dub Mix)
Karizma made a timeless remix of ‘Hang Around’ its deep, stripped and those vocals… This still sounds great on a big sound system.

Rachel Row – Follow The Step (Kink Beat Mix)
Break beats by Kink… I love the flow of this tracks it takes you on a trippy journey.

Fat Freddy’s Drop – Flashback (Jazzanova’s Breathe Easy Remix)
Beautiful, groovy song… I have so many memories playing this… Happy music.

Drake – Know Yourself
Noah “40” Shebib is an amazing engineer and you can hear his work on this record. Everything just cuts through so well and the sub bass on the track still does it for me…
Travis Scott – Sicko Mode (Ft Drake)
I actually think Drake had the strongest verse on the record yet they never credited him on the song even though it went Number 1 on Billboard…

WizKid – Ginger Ft Burna Boy
I had the opportunity to play in Lagos, Nigeria last month and this is the sound of the city. The vocals are so catchy, it’s that Nigerian groove…
WizKid - Ginger ft. Burna Boy
Magic System – 1er Gaou
The group from Abidjan, probably one of the most influential songs coming from the African continent. There have been a few remixes recently bringing the song back to the dancefloors… but I still prefer the original for its groove.
Alexkid – Love We Have
Classic, every deep house head in South Africa knows this song.
Love We Have
Nick Holder – Summer Daze
The song samples Pat Methany Group’s “Slip Away”. Summer Daze is infamous in South Africa and brings back many dancefloors memories.

Cloudkickers – Bring On The Night (Rocco TroDeep Mix)
This is one of my favorite remixes from Rocco and the vocal is amazing.

Soul Central – Strings of Life (Martijn ten Velden & Mark Knight Toolroom Mix)
This is a different take on Strings of Life, the song builds, the pianos fade in and that first break where the hook comes in still gives me goosebumps…
