DJ TOP 10:

1. Dominique Carroll – “Overboard (Dwayne Minard Remix)”
 
Coming out soon and very proud to have my first try at a Tech-remix picked up by DBR Recordings.

2. Dwayne Minard – “Too Late to Stop (Rough Mix)”
 
Big subby bass line, a rolling groove, crowd noise and a one-line repeated vocal hook. It’s simple but it’s infectious and has been working a dream on my dancefloor. Gonna be a nice follow-up to "Overboard," methinks.

3. Daniel Portman – “The Crowd”

I love the way this track manages to be sinister and playful at the same time. It’s got a great groove and killer production. Minimal madness from Daniel Portman.

4. Groove Phenomenon – “September (Dave Rose Remix)”

Lovely filtered house rework of Earth, Wind & Fire’s '70s classic "September." What can I say? They had me at “Ba De Ya!”

5. Umek & Mike Vale – “Chosen”

This track is so sexy it hurts! The slick production, bouncing bass line and swinging groove is hotter than Kylie in hot pants.

6. Garrett & Ojelay – “Love You Better”

A cheeky sample of Steely Dan’s “Peg” over a big-room house groove has made this a staple in my sets since last summer. Did I mention it samples the best yacht rock song of all time? I kick myself in the ass for having not thought of it first!

7. Toris Badic – “Alto Mare (Babysitters Remix)”

Another big-room, feel-good, filtered disco track that has been rocking my sets for a while. Toris Badic takes Loredana Berte’s 1980 funk jam “In Alto Mare” and transforms it into a full-on dancefloor stomper!

8. Milk & Sugar – “Stay Around (David Penn Remix)”

This has to be one of my all-time favourite house tracks. The original mix from 2003 can still create ripples of euphoria on a dancefloor, but David Penn has done a great job of bringing this classic up to date for the big room. Check it out and see if you agree.

9. Toni Carrillo – “I Have A Dream “

Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech over an amazing house groove punctuated with a beautiful disco sample makes this track seven minutes of pure heaven.

10. Mark Dakoda – “Cold Cuz”

This track is hotter than Sterling Archer with a beard (and that’s pretty damn hot!) Don’t believe me? Google image search "Sterling Archer with a beard" and check the track at the link below, then tell me what you think. Hehe...
