The Bucketheads - The Bomb (Armand Van Helden Re-Edit)

Surely you remember this mid-90's classic house track?  Time to bring it back.

Heartthrob - Baby Kate (Plastikman Remix)

This is a rediscovery from me, from the height of the minimal era circa 2007 - an absolute beautiful minimal monster perfect for tranquilized zombies.

Oliver Huntemann - Schatten

A mixture of tech-focused power and dreamy deep trance soundscapes, a return to form for Oliver Huntemann.

Whim-ee - You Can Amor (Seb Zito's JS Mix)

This is proper miserable, really quite dark and mournful underground house - almost as if it were made for a funeral or wake.  Real emotions behind this track.

Gloriously miserable.

DVS1 - Lost Myself

The kind of techno where you are just taking it down a touch before the next peak, calming things down before sending it crazy, gorgeous track.

Petre Inspirescu - Talking Waters

La Fleur - Kattflickan (Art Of Tones Remix)

One of those beautiful deep house tracks that strikes you wish enough sunshine to fill the world's largest goldfish bowl twice over, and yes it is real deep house.  Lush.

House People - Godfather Of House (Club Mix II)

Proper 80's Chicago house with a glistening soul, and high-pitched vocal stabs.  Was Frankie Knuckles the godfather of house music back in 1986?

Egal 3 - Fugadefuga

Enchanting hypnotic beauty, like being on a beach watching a hot young lady (or man) in a bikini walking up and down, up and down, up and down, oh and I like the name a lot - Fugadefuga.

Mano Le Tough - Return To Yoz

Another fast-rising star with a track that growls and purrs like a lion but doesn't eat you.

Maceo Plex - Conjure Sex

A woman having sex with a synth.  Assumedly an analog synth rather than digital.

FiberRoot - Space Localizer

Absolute monster of a filthbag, with mind-bending sounds sounding like a growling helicopter noise inside a tech-house kind of beat, as dirty as a Glastonbury dog.  Would be absolutely immense on a big system.

Simian Mobile Disco & Roman Flugel - Ikizukuri (Art Mix)

Falling somewhere between the deep trance and Tale Of Us kind of signature sound, a gently pulsing beast.

Francis Inferno Orchestra - Hezbolla

Swinging house music track with an element of funk to it and apparently an ode to a terrorist group.

Quilla - A Million Broken Bikes (Ricardo Villalobos & Shaun Reeves Remix)

Yet again Ricardo absolutely nails a remix, with the help of Shaun Reeves this time - not an expected combination, a gentle minimal ditty at just 5 minutes long about a load of bikes smashed up by pedestrians pissed off by pavement cyclists, or something like that.

Ivan Dbri - Jive Baby Jive

I really like this, it has a cool kind of 90's house style with some girly whoops.

Late Nite Tuff Guy - Nobody (LNTG Rework)

A slow and long blissed out version of a classic love track.  Oh yeah.
