Tale Of Us The/Das – Fresh Water

This is just like eating horse meat by accident, if you had heard previous Tale Of Us tracks you wouldn't be expecting something this tough and up front, but from the first few bites of the beats you know you have a beauty of a beast.

Maxxi Soundsystem – Stella’s Way

This is a really clever remix - the sample is hardly used but you will recognise it.  Any more and it would be cheesy.  And has orgasm levels of filthy rolling basslines, enough to please a Liberal Democrat.

Peace Division – Blacklight Sleaze (Dyed Soundorom Remix)

This is very frigging cool, like Arctic upper air temperatures, the original was great and is now almost a classic and this brings it up to date and keeps it cool.  Fridgey.

Omar S – SEX (CGP Conant Gardens Posse Remix)

Some songs about sex are anything but sexy but this is hot, slutty, pornographic sleaze.  Slow house with an rnb twist it oozes ‘play me in a strip club’ cool.

Viadrina – Luna (Coat Of Arms Remix)

Light and airy garage.  A bit like the one on stilts in Dagenham.

Suburban Knight – The Groove

Proper ghetto house from 1987, sounds like what you would expect from Nina Kraviz however it was actually Carl Craig who introduced this to me – dark basslines and scaffolding.

There is a longer version but this 5 minute edit is all I can find on Youtube.

Mathew Jonson – Dayz

Sometimes Mathew Jonson makes these amazing unique pieces of melodic electronic music, verging on techno though of the kind Sven plays and this is another masterpiece.

Photek – Mine To Give

The ultra-warm bassline and Robert Owen’s unmistakable vocals make this a true classic.
