Ike - The Mojo

This has got quite an old-sounding house beat to it, is slightly dark and has a slightly creepy male vocal to it, very nice…only 5 minutes long though.

Marc Romboy vs. Stephan Bodzin - Miranda (Oliver Huntemann Remix)

Three of my favourite producers involved from around 2008 – not hugely into the dark and techy stuff nowadays but this is really good, albeit sounding like it is from 2008!

Axel Boman - Holy Love

I love this (kind of obvious I guess seeing as I am listing it here), really rather beautiful and melodic vocal house, top stuff.

Lee Foss - Cabin Party

Lee Foss is another one of my best discoveries from 2010, hoping to see him in April all being well.  Nice, slightly melodic slow house with a hint of vocal, very much my favourite sound at the moment.

Soul Clap - Lonely C

Probably the first time I have ever featured a track at just 3 minutes long!  I love most things that Soul Clap do, one of my best discoveries of 2010, such a good warm feeling.  Should be 10 minutes long though.

Art Department feat. Seth Troxler - Living The Life

Art Department with Seth Troxler on the vocals?  I didn’t even need to listen this to know I would list it as a top tune.  Am I getting carried away with the hype?  This is typically slow and dark and quite spooky, plenty of vocals.  Very nice.

Ultra Nate - Free (Ramon Tapia & Kabale und Liebe Remix)

This was quite a surprise when Villalobos played this at fabric the other night after a load of typically repetitive beatless minimal.  Pleasingly underground and minimal without too much of the original

The Muffin Tops - Double Oh Oh (Clement Meyer & Le Loup Remix)

This is slightly sinister but uplifting at the same time, an excellent minimal groove.  Love this, ha ha screw you sunshine and happiness give me some darkness.
