I’ve been so behind with the dj charts. And now, this is what you get, 25 plus songs. Have some patience and work through the list, the diamonds & pearls are not only at the top.

  1. Crookers feat. Roisin Murphy – Royal T – Southern Fried
    I don’t really know if this is the #1 but it sure is a crazy energy song with super highs and mellow parts. So during the breaks you can come up with an interpretive dance interlude. I was lucky enough to have an early copy and so it was Royal T Nuts for a few months. Still waiting for the Riva Starr Vocal mix to come out, the dub is a bit to dull for me.
  2. Ray Mang – Bullet Proof feat. Lady Miss Kier – DFA
    I’ve written about this before. I don’t get tired of listening and playing it. Classic upbeat vocal house. Something about anti war.
  3. Jazzanova – Look What You’re Doin’ To Me feat. Phonte (Motor City Drum Ensemble Remix) – Universal
    Who knew this song comes out of Germany? Deep and downbeat. Whoever calls the lyrics kitschy doesn’t get it.
  4. Pirahnahead & Diviniti feat. Eric King – 2getherness (7 Mile Dub)Whasdat
    This one rumbles the floors. With love from Detroit.
  5. The MuthaFunkaz – Hangin On A String (Miami Mix) – Code Red
    Turning the original Loose ends version from 1985 into a stomper.
  6. Remerc – Baptista – Greelpound
    Cologne in the house. I’m always falling for chopped up vocals or weird vocal sounds.
  7. Missing Linkx – Who To Call – Philpot Records
    Pushy piano geklimper house. Feeling the vocal breaks.
  8. David Keno – Upside Down – Snatch
    You know who sang the original. This is a dubby house version. And there even is a silly video for it. First release on Riva Stars’ label.
  9. The Martinez Brothers – Don’t No Yet EP – Objektivity
    The young boys have taken over & have created a monster EP. All three tracks are hits.
  10. Jessica 6 – Fun Girl (Keinemusik Remix)
    This mix is more straightforward then the 13 min disco workout I’ve mentioned before. One for earlier, one for later. Which is which?
  11. Omar S aka Alex Smith – Sign And Drive / Here With Me feat. Diviniti – FXHE
    Ahhh. Another masterpiece. Love the long intro and then Diviniti’s vocals hit you. So good.
  12. Tracey Thorn – Why Does The Wind Blow (Ewan Pearson Radio Edit) – Strange Feeling
    This song is from her upcoming album which should have the full version. “Love And Its Opposite” will probably be more acoustic from what I heard, so I’m happy we get some dancey stuff as well.
  13. Willie Graff & Tuccillo – Give You Up (Chez Damier’s A Little More Interpretation) – Freerange
    The first time I heard this one, I had the loopy filtered synths in my head for the whole day. It’s a 9 minute trippy house journey.
  14. Jaffa SurfaDisko Z (Original Mix) – Bosconi Extra Virgin
    Nu new disco.
  15. Ike – Diskadenz – Philpot Records
    Rolling piano beats.
  16. Ian Pooley – What I Got feat. Tim Fuller (Derrick Carter Vocal Remix) – Pooled Music
    Derrick Carter’s trademark bouncy beats bring this track to a whole new level.
  17. Erykah Badu – Window Seat (Dj Aakmael dubb mixx)
    Unofficial deep house remix of Erykah’s lead single. An early or very late, warm song to play.
  18. Argy & The Martinez Brothers – Debbie Downer
    So gut mit MJ Sample.
  19. Tensnake – Coma Cat – Permanent Vacation
    Hier laeuten die Glocken. Peg AssIs turned me onto this one and now I have to play it every time she’s thurrr, just to shut her up and get her dancing.
  20. Henrik Schwarz And Kuniyuki – Once Again (Kuniyuki Version) – Mule Musiq
    What was missing from the charts? Jazzy piano. Here we go.
  21. Roisin Murphy – Momma’s Place (The C90s Remix)
    I believe this remix was commissioned by Ms Murphy but somehow it didn’t get released on the single. Such a pity, because it is the best mix.
  22. Rennie Foster – Savior feat. Aaron-Carl (Club Mix) – Rebirth
    Written and sung by AC. Classic.
  23. Romanthony – Girls Like Girls (Zanzibar Vocal) – Blackmale
    The bf is scared his gf is on the dl. “I don’t wanna be the last to know, that my girl likes girls on the downlow.” So deep it hurts.
  24. DJ PP – 100% Percusion – Soulman Music
    It is what it is. As the title suggests.
  25. Motorcitysoul – Deliver Me (Original Mix) – Simple
    Uuuh, there is also an Acoustic Version.

And some disco classics that I love:
– Suzy Q – Get On Up Do It Again
– Golden Flamingo Orchestra ft. Margo Williams – The Guardian Angel Is Watching Over Us
– Plastic Bertrand – Stop Ou Encore (Ron Hardy Re-Edit)
