1. UK One – Yeah! (Warlock Remix) feat. Tia & Chantel
The vocals and beat on this record are tough! I remember playing this one in Amsterdam this past ADE during the early hours and it went off. This is a great tune.
2. Black Rascals – Keeping In Mind feat. Roger Harris
This truly is some feel good house music right here. I love the vibe and vocal of this record.
3. Nas – The Message
This is one of my favorite Nas records. The words “a thug changes, and love changes, and best friends become strangers’ has always resonated with me, even now.
4. Ricardo Villalobos – Alterverwalter
Out of the countless Ricardo records I have, I really love this one. The groove is infectious and is able to keep you going until the guitar slowly comes in. It’s definitely a groover.
5. Model 500 – The Chase (Smooth Mix)
Such an amazing record that will hit the spot in any situation. This is definitely Juan Atkins at his best with this tune. Grade A quality music.
6. Michal Jackson – Who Is It (Quentin Harris Remix)
It’s no small thing to take a record from someone like Michael Jackson and successfully transform it. Quentin’s take does that and more. The mood and vibe of this remix is beyond special.
7. The Slammin Boys – Dreams
Timeless record here. It’s full of uplifting and happy vibes. It makes me want to be outside dancing, which will hopefully be soon.
8. Benny Rodriguez & Kapuchon – Reel
This is a sick stomper. I’ve been playing this record out for years. It definitely sets the tone on the dancefloor with the drums.
9. George Benson – Give Me The Night
This smooth record is really fun and sets you up proper for the weekend.
10. Dennis Ferrer – Transitions
This is one of my favorite Dennis records of all time. I really love the bassline and drums. I remember hearing it all the time at Pacha NYC back in the day and it would rock the dance floor. I love playing this one out.
‘Jean Pierre’s Bandcamp mini-album is out May 14th.
