I’m going to start off with my latest release Musical Freedom, a track I am super proud of, especially having the ‘queen of house’ Adeva on the vocals, the original Paul Simpson version was a track I used to play at the end of my sets, way back in the early 90’s at clubs like – Limelights, Paddocks, Gardening Club, Pushca, etc, reminds me of such amazing times.

Revival ft Imaani – Best Of My Love – Revival Records
This label is pure quality, honestly everything they release sounds amazing. This is the 4th release and it’s a classy update of one of my favourite disco tracks ever. Imaani nails the vocal, production is on another level. Definitely looking forward to hearing more from them.

Ten City – That’s The Way Love Is – Sony Ultra
Wow, never in my wildest dreams, thinking back to being this 19 years old playing this record on repeat, would I ever get the chance to remix this true house classic. I really hope I did it justice and from the DJ feedback seems I did! Big shout to Marshall Jefferson for the kind words on the remix too.

Cassimm – Love Desire – Golden
This goes off, pure and simple. Loletta Holloway vocals have that special excitement in a house track and combined with this groove, a nod to French kiss, this is the killer combination.
Sound Support – Bump Into You – Toy Tonics
I’m a big fan of the Toy Tonics label, but this record is the stand out for me. Just feels so good; I can play this any set anywhere and it just works.

Soul Avengerz – Hurts On You – Big Speaker Music
This is one of mine on US label Big speaker and I love the vocal, its a groover, really sets the vibe in a club, love that its getting lots of good comments and feedback.

Friendly Ghosts – Fan The Flame – Pleased As Punch
A new label on the block from Simon Shapeshifters and Saison. Really loving their vibe, I might even have a track coming on this fab label soon – watch this space!
Fan The Flame (Extended)
Low Steppa & Crusy – This Is The Sound – DFTD
This is one for the late-night sets, just how I like it when the lights go down. Big drums & big energy, has that early Harry Romero & Jose Nunez vibe to it.

Michael Gray – Invincible – Sultra Records
To be honest, I don’t think I’ve ever played a DJ set without at least one track from Michael Gray – Absolute don, classy as ever and a big influence on me from the start of my production career.
Ron Carroll – Mysteries – Nu Groove
Nu Groove have been putting out some great releases recently. This one is a nod to the early nineties and I’m here for that, this sounds so good in a club.
