Clockwork - It's You Again

This is one hot top tune, slightly spooky, rather dark house music with indecipherable chatting and a lovely bassline - it's all about the bassline nowadays.

Tiefschwarz - Home (Soul Clap's Aldie Street Remix)

Last top tune of July, I shall endeavour to put more up, I know I have been slack this month!

This is a really quite dark remix of a Tiefschwarz track with a lovely wobbly bassline to it, would love to hear this on a super soundsystem, like fabric's.

Maceo Plex – Falling

Ignore the first few seconds of weirdness.  This is the fourth time I have featured this producer, 3 times as Maceo Plex and 1 as Maetrik – absolutely on fire this year, this reminds me more of the filtered French house of early 2000’s – a really good and very accessible feed-good track.

Modern Amusement - Real Love

Another house track with a devastating bassline, slightly spooky with rather high-pitched vocals like a very young woman on laughing gas, perhaps.

Luciano - Back To Front

Luciano is a bit hit and miss for me nowadays, I wouldn’t mind going to his night at Pacha, but the last time I saw him at fabric he was a little dull and commercial – this however is a very groovy 15-minute minimal track, really liking this.

Russ Yallop – The Crossroads

House music with a disco feel to it, quite a few good productions around from Russ Yallop with a distinctive feel good feel to them.  Think I first heard Jamie Jones playing it.

Maceo Plex - Ain't That Love

I think I do love everything that this guy does, I am increasingly featuring him, his prductions are just fantastic and another very good house track here.

Tale Of Us - Winds Of Change

Apologies for the lack of new top tunes during July.

I know that this is only the 4th - and I did 32 in June.  Very slack.  I am back on the case, just had a party break.

This is one of those tracks that I didn’t take to at first, Tale Of Us are talented producers from Italy, this has a slow almost haunted house sound to it and almost a touch of emotion.

Vapourspace - Gravitational Arch Of 10

Sven Vath played this as his opening tune of 2011 at Cocoon in Frankfurt.  It might make more sense if you watch the video rather than just listen to it - it just has this superb build-up.  I'll leave the rest as a surprise as this video is well worth watching, with the lights off and curtains closed.


Oh, and yes, I bought the Vapourspace album on the back of this and it is about 18 years old.

Damn you, Sven. :-)

Ricardo Villalobos - MDMA

Ricardo played this at Cocoon In The Park on Saturday, and I love it when he plays one of his old classics as he usually does, and this was one of the best moments of the whole festival for me, and it was absolutely full of those moments.

And to think that it was released in 1996.  I never would have understood it then!!

I think that it might actually have been released under the name Richard Wolfsdorf and a vinyl copy of this EP goes for €250!  There is quite a bit of discussion on online forums about the exact name, but more importantly is that it is an absolutely amazing tune.

Tensnake - Something About You

A bit more commercially minded than most stuff I like, this has a cool 90’s house vibe going on and is definitely a feel good track.  Even on a Tuesday.
