Neil Young ‘Hey Hey My My’ (Reprise)One of the problems of a punk youth is that I completely rejected 70's rock. What a fool! Now I know this is sunshine heaven.Krafwerk ‘Neon Lights’ (Capitol)Such dry minimalists, but such emotion! These guys were genius.Idris Muhammad ‘Could Heaven ever be like this’ (Kudu)I think, after hearing this, it could.PIL ‘Public Image Limited’ (Virgin)Punk grew up a little with Johnny Lydon's pairing with the reggae freak Jah Wobble. The combination of punk anger, du...

Big Strides

01. SAM COOKE - “THAT'S WHERE IT'S AT”I always think Sam Cooke was just finding his proper soul stride when he died. Otis Reading just did the 'home run' for him. This is a late recording of his and it's one of those tunes that could make you either smile or cry. Bitter-sweet soul.02. EELS - “FRESH FEELING”The production and the mix of styles on Eels stuff is always amazing, and this is so close to a straightforward pop song with but with much more class. The string arrangement doesn't even begi...

Sex Technique - Queen of JapanI think Queen of Japan are German - I first got to know of them through their excellent cover of Kiss's I Was Made For Loving You which featured on the 2 Many DJs mix album. This is one of their original tracks and features the line, “I wish that you would fall in love with me, not only with my splendid sex technique” - it's a wonderfully non-English use of the word 'splendid'.Self Control - Laura BranniganThis is an Eighties track. I found it on the Grand Theft Aut...

Oleta Adams ‘Never Knew Love’ DT’s Mercury Mix – FontanaThe first chords touch your heart, Danny Tenaglia's superb arrangements remind me of the Frankie Knuckles era (one of my major inspirations). And there's a surprise funky section that starts halfway through the fourteen-minute mix. A masterpiece! Chaka ‘Love You All My Lifetime’ Diva Mix - WarnerLots of 'deep' strings (fairly unusual for this singer) with surprising arrangements, a seductive keyboard line, and some jazzy solo piano. An exce...

Berndt Egerbladh - "Nybyggarland" LP (Sonet)This truly underrated swedish jazz platter is essential listening if you want to know where were coming from musically. Beautiful folk melodies from northern Sweden in a soulful jazz costume.Merit Hemmingson - "Visa Från Medelpad" LP track from "Trollskog" (EMI)Swedish folk queen Merit Hemmingson in one of her most mellow and soulful moments, here trading her trusty Hammond for a Wurlitzer electric piano. Magic!A Tribe Called Quest - "Midnight Marauder...

01. Grandmaster Flash - The Adventures Of Grandmaster Flash On The Wheels Of Steel (Sugarhill) 1981Apart from being one of the greatest records ever made, it was this that made me want to get serious behind the decks.02. Visual - The Music's Got Me (Prelude) 1983Uplifting, great vocals, bassline & groove. I can still picture Greg Wilson, back in '83, chop-mixing this to great effect at Legend, Manchester. After seeing Greg, I definitely wanted to be a DJ!03. D Train - Keep On (Prelude) 1982I...

01. Change  ‘Angel In My Pocket’Change are one of my favourite groups from the disco era and this one of my favourite tracks, uplifting with an irresistibly catchy b-line riff, guaranteed to put a smile on your face.02. Talking Heads ‘This Must Be The Place (Live)’One band I wished I'd seen live, the Stop Making Sense live album that this is from is genuis. This track is both quirky and moving and with a line like "I love you till my heart stops" you can't lose.03. Deelite  ‘What Is Love’They ma...

01. 'Groovin with Mr Blow' Mr BlowIt's the Harmonica solo to end them all (a bit). But most importantly it makes you feel like you are actually 'goovin' with the man… the title is so apt.02. 'She's a Lady' PulpThis is such a good song. It's off Pulp's best album (In my eyes). 03. 'Radio Prague' Orchestral Manoeuvres in the dark.The album 'Dazzle Ship's' made me think that the world was going to end. This is the first track off that album, but the rest is just as good. It's a trick, as I want eve...

Paperclip People ‘Throw’This I remember from the first shindig party in Newcastle years and years back - FX and Digit on 4 decks - cut up two copies of CLS 'can you feel it' was also a highlight as i remember, but Paperclip people has managed to stand the test of time I still get exited when someone plays it and freak out when the vocal effects come in at the end... ddrrruugggss!Neu ‘Hallogallo’This is without doubt the greatest driving song ever recorded - on the way to the vice festival this s...

Manu Chao ‘Minha Galera’This is one of my all time favorite songs. I always said that I will someday dance with my future wife (whoever she may end up being) to this song at my wedding on a beach in South America. I know, I am a sap. But to me this song evokes strong feelings of love. This is the best song off of my favorite Manu Chao album - in my opinion, and I love every song on this album.The Smiths ‘There Is A Light That Never Goes Out’ I am a huge Smiths fan. Their music is just full on po...

01. Beastie Boys 'So What’cha Want’ (Def Jam Recordings)Just fat beats with distorted rough rhymes - love that tune.02. Prince 'I Would Die 4U' (Warner)I’m a huge fan of Prince. I am so glad that he has started doing music like this again. That’s what he does best.03. Q-Tip 'Vivrant Thing’ (Def Jam Recordings)He is definitely one of my favourite hip-hop artists. This song can be played at all kinds of parties, from Hip Hop to House. This one really rocks. I wish I could have the opportunity to w...

01. B-52’s ‘Legal Tender’ [Warner Bros]I remember this video from when MTV first arrived in my town. I used to sit in front of the television all day fascinated by all of this amazing music.

01. Karizma "Tech this out 2" (BBE)New track from karizma, who is doing some hot shit at the moment and for this track he sampled some sounds from an old track of Ame which makes me proud.02. Chateau Flight "Baccula" (Innervisions)Track from new EP on our own label, honestly one of the best records in the last two years and not only because it is on our label.03.

01. Pet Shop Boys ‘Left to My Own Devices’We're both big fans of PSB, particular Lloyd. The album this is taken from features only 6 tracks but each is a work of art and sounds classy when played next to other music in a mix. The combination of the full classical orchestra with the disco beats and full-on synths sounds ecstatic. We love Neil Tennant's positively English and surreal vocals.02. Daft Punk ‘Digital Love’This really reminds us of Video Killed the Radio Star by Buggles. It was a reall...
