Mount Kimbie – William (Tama Sumo & Prosumer Remix)

This is very classy.  An almost orchestral piece of minimal by two of Berlin’s typically underhyped heroes.

Marcus Vector & Jay Haze – Get Up The Street

Taking you places you can’t see.  Delicious underground house music.

Exercise One & Mathew Jonson – Lost Forever In A Happy Crowd

Epic.  Mathew Jonson is the king of epic.  And this has that characteristic in bucket loads.  Sounds like Sasha at his best.

Umo Detic - Fahrenheit

Uplifting techno for a marching band of party animals.  A rather fast tempo for my standards.

Nina Kraviz – Ghetto Kraviz (Steve Rachmad Jack Mix)

I love the original, pure filth and this is a slightly more pumped up remix with a killer which needs to be destroyed with an industrial blender.

Eric Martin – Emergency (Steve Poindexter Re-edit)

This is a love or hate track.  A what the fuck is going on kind of track which degrades into an odd beat pattern with distorted sirens, computer bleeps and comforting rumblings.  A total bugger to dance to.

Nina Kraviz – Working (Marcellus Pittman Remix)

This starts unassuming but turns into a techno groover.  Nina started her recent Boiler Room mix with it and it is a perfect starting tune.

M.A.N.D.Y & Booka Shade – Oh Superman (Robags Pumper-Nikkel Remix)

There was a time when M.A.N.D.Y and Booka Shade were absolutely at the forefront of electronic music and well in front of many with their respective accessible brands of catchy minimal.  Booka Shade in particular sound tired and dated now but this remix by the excellent Robag Wruhme is a beast.  A chugging beauty.

DJ W!ld - Gorilla

Chunky house track obviously about gorilla's learning how to use tools for the first time.

Totally bananas.

tINI – Medusa Meets Jack

This is really miserable.  So miserable that I just had to make it a top tune.

On my latest mix, Cinderella Rockerfella.

Minilogue – Doiicie B

The guide to having an easy life in minimal techno format.  I have been looking for this for a long time but without making any extra effort than strictly required to ensure it fell into my lap.  D.E.

If you like this then I thoroughly recommend Elephant's Parade by Minilogue.

Mike Dehnert – Umlaut2 (Levon Vincent’s NY Basement Mix)

I do love the work of Levon Vincent, there is always something really classy sounding about his productions and this is no exception, an excellent remix with dancefloor destroying potential but just oozing in class like sniffing coke from an expensive hooker’s bum.

Favourite track right now and it went down very well when I played it at Time2Groove on Saturday.
