Avion - Damon Wild (88uw Remix)

Techno does come much tougher than this but for my standards this is tough techno, robust and uncompromising.

Perfect for a moody Monday :-)

Subb-an – Misleading

Really good chunky sounding house track with some fairly non-understandable vocals stretched across the track – Subb-an is definitely starting to become an artist to follow – another UK house producer.  What is in the water here?

Lucky Paul - Thought We Were Alone (Money vs Gold Remix)

Amazing house track, full of emotion, melody, bass-line, male vocals, slightly slower bpm, breakdown with a let's go crazy re-start - just everything I love about music right now.

Definitely a shivers down the spine and oh just how much I would love to hear this on a dancefloor.

I know I love every tune on my top tunes blog, but this one is just super-loved.

Energy 52 - Cafe Del Mar (Ricardo Villalobos Dub)

If you remember the good old trance days circa 1998 then the original is likely one of your favourite tracks of all time.  Mine too.

This is way too subtle for most people and I have heard so many people be very unpleasant about it.

But such is my obsession with Ricardo, of course it has to feature here.  It has taken more listens than probably any other track this year to fall in love with it, but fallen in love I have J

Just in case you are wondering on genre – it is minimal.

Miguel Campbell - Something Special

This is seemingly a massive tune at the moment, everyone seems to love it, quite a simple house tune with a lovely bassline and a girl singing “Something Special, Makes Me Want to Fuck” or so it sounds like.

Pretty sure either Danny Daze or Jamie Jones played it at fabric the other week, but don’t quote me…another example of why Leeds seems to be the centre of house music in the world right now.  And rather short at less than 5 minutes.

And it was actually played at Mango in little old Reading on Saturday!

Pillow Talk - The Come Back

This is a very distinctive track, slow disco-house but with a little bit of an r’n’b vocal to it, not a peak-time tune but a very nice tune, very very nice.

I have a feeling that we might hear a lot from Pillow Talk over the coming months.

No Regular Play - Lookin (Life And Death Remix)

Deep basslines, male vocals and a superb drop, I’m not sure if this kind of stuff is starting to become a little predictable but I am still liking it a lot.

Scuba - Adrenalin

Starts off as a house track but breaks down into a lovely floaty melodic moment or two, before building back up, house but with more than a hint of trance.

Maceo Plex - Can't Leave You

Yet another hot Maceo Plex track, this starts off with a really raw long rumbling dirty bassline, but it soon lifts up in melody...before breaking down for a repeat.

Lovely stuff.
