25 an d th en s ome

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)

The Lost Charts

Here are my dj charts that I should have posted half a year (or something) ago. Since my last countdown was posted in April, this is almost like a best of 2009. So late. So sorry. But so good.
More recent charts are just around the corner. I promise.

  1. Jerome Sydenham – Ecoute (Ecoute!) – UK Promotions
    Has some “Sylvester – Dance (Disco Heat)” (Martha Wash and Izora Armstead on vocals) in the mix and turns it into a modern disco house track. Love it.
  2. The Gossip – Love Long Distance (Riva Starr Remix Vocal) – Sony
    The remix on soundcloud is not the complete version, but you get the idea of the cut up vocals. Stomper.
  3. Derrick Carter – A Hope (Over U) (D’s Meeting House Dub) – Classic
    Super house classic from the Mo Pschidt Ep, has the chipmunk Friends (The 1:00 Club) on the flipside. I got into it again last year and have been spinning it quite a bit. Both sides.
  4. Omar-S – Lift Him Up feat. Don Q and Still Serious Nic – FXHE
    Lift Him Up is a raw gospel deep house monster featuring Omar-S’s brother on vocals. Still Serious Nic is seriously rough.
  5. Lady Gaga – Bad Romance (Hercules & Love Affair Mix) – Interscope
    You can’t escape Gaga after this nu disco Hercules remix. Best mix of her songs so far. There is also a dub version if you can’t stand the vocals.
  6. Pezzner – Shasta (Master King Reprise Mix) – Physical Graffiti
    Hysterical peak time track. Deep shet.
  7. Aaron-Carl – I Refuse (Quentin Harris Remix) – Wall Shaker Music
    Love the Prince samples in this one. And combined with AC’s vocals, ahhhh, unbeatable.
  8. DJ T. – Shine On (Motor City Drum Ensemble Warehouse Dub Mix) – Get Physical
    Just one of many great Motor City Drum Ensemble mixes that came out last year. Check out Danielo on soundcloud for the latest on Motor City songs.
  9. The Phenomenal Handclap Band – You’ll Disappear (Horse Meat Disco Remix) – Gomma
    Nu disco, space disco. Not sure what to call it.
  10. Dennis Ferrer – Sinfonia Della Notte – Strictly Rhythm
  11. Romanthony – Miami (Mix 1)
    New, raw production with a vocal loop “Have you ever been to Miami?”
  12. Justus Köhncke – Lieder der Nacht feat. Marianne Rosenberg – E’de Cologne
    So gay. So good. So German.
  13. Marc Evans – Tonight’s The Night (Miguel Migs Salted Dub) – Defected
  14. Michael Gray, Danism & Lisa Millett – Say Yes – Defected
  15. Jovonn feat. Koffee the Story – Kitty Kat (Original Main Mix) – NextMoov
    I always fall for some good pussy talk.
  16. Róisín Murphy – Orally Fixated
    This one was all over the interwebs when Roisin finally released it. Still pumping.
  17. Todd Terry – Play On (Eddie Thoneick Remix) feat. Tara Macdonald – Strictly Rhythm

That’s not all. Here’s some Michael Jackson. I love to play these mixes:

  • Michael Jackson – Remember The Time (Silky Soul 12” Mix) – Sony
    One of my (if not the) favourite MJ remixes. Steve Silk Hurley turned Remember The Time into a house classic. Sorry, couldn’t find a good link for the 12″ version.
  • Michael Jackson – Rock With You (Frankie Knuckles Favourite Club Mix) – Sony
    This one is so smooth. A good start into the night. I believe it was first released as the B-Side to “You Are Not Alone” in 1995.
  • Argy & The Martinez Brothers – Debbie Downer – Objektivity
    This came out before Michael’s death. It has a sample (“don’t you dare”) that definitely sounds like MJ, but I can’t make out the song it’s from. Any ideas?

Early Spring Charts

Apart from the songs below, I love to listen to anything Kid Cudi. Hopefully he is coming out with his debut album soon, although Cudi has recently announced and withdrawn, his retirement. In general, I do think it is a great idea to announce the retirement before the first album hits the streets.

  1. Danism & Michael Watford – Change (Original Mix) – MN2S
    From the WMC Miami Sampler. Great beats with a hint of gospel.
  2. Marc Evans – The Way U Love Me (Spen’s Deadly Love Potion) – Defected
    This is such a good dub mix, with some metal hitting sounds. Has a powerful vocal break near the end.
  3. Black Science Orchestra – Save Us (MotorCitySoul Remix) – Junior Boys Own
  4. Jennifer Hudson – Spotlight (Quentin Harris Dark Collage Club Mix) – Arista
    I’m a little bit late on this one. It is a gay monster. I start playing this after 1:45 min., it is a little bit too circut before. But I loves me some J-Hud.
  5. 3rd Face – Canto Della Liberta (D’s New 3rd Face Dub) – Classic Recordings
    Very hysterical spanish yelling on this new remix of 90ties house.
  6. Capracara – King Of The Witches (Rub N Tug Remix) – DFA
    More new disco from DFA.
  7. Cece Peniston – Finally (Aaron-Carl Remix)
    And I thought I would never listen or dj that song again. Aaron-Carl proved me wrong. The remix pushes some fresh beats through that rusty old homo anthem.
  8. Mary J. Blige – Give Me You (Club Path / Boris Dlugosch Mix) – MCA
    I found this record at an used record store. It is such a pushy remix.
  9. Lil Louis – Club Lonely (Ill Mark Remix) – Bulk
    Unofficial, new remix of the classic house song.
  10. Moody – Freeki Mutha F cker – KDJ
    Moodymann giving us a solid Prince song.
  11. Stevie Wonder – Make Sure You’re Sure (Timmy Regisford & Quentin Harris Mix)Un-restricted Access
    The original version of the song is from the Jungle Fever soundtrack.
  12. Andreas Dorau – Im September (Justus Köhncke Remix) – Mute
    Im September. Oktober. November. Dezember. That are all the lyrics in Justus’ disco dubby mix that I missed when the song was first released. Amäzing. Available at iTunes Germany.
  13. Flora Cruz – Overcome (Phil Hooton’s Mel Cheren and Larry Levan Tribute Vocal) – Mixtape Sessions Music
    Just from the name you can see that this is a great old-school sounding disco mix.
  14. Bear Who – U Step (BHQ Remix) – Dust Traxx
    More Derrick Carter bouncy Chicago house.

Momma’s Wurst

Can’t seem to get the charts in order this time.
More or less top ten like. Here we go:

Momma's Groove

Wurst Edits

Summer Charts

This time the charts have lots of double entries, like artists, labels, remixers.
Enjoy them twice.

  1. Danny Clark & Jay Benham feat. Susu Bobien – Wondrous (Muthafunkaz Remix) – Strictly Rhythm
    You know I like a gospel number on top. Streaming on Strictly’s myspace.
  2. Bernard Badie – Time Reveals (Club Use Only) – Mojuba
    This is a re-release from 1994.
  3. Hercules & Love Affair – You Belong (D’s New Rhythm Bounce) – DFA
    Bouncy & funky. It’s a stone winner.
  4. Aaron-Carl – Oasis (Nick Holder Vocal Dub) – Superb
  5. Fantasia – Not The Way I Do (Jovonn Remix) – Promo
  6. Bernard Badie feat. Dajae – Truth Hurts (Club Mix) – Smooth Agent
    The upcoming Aaron-Carl remix is streaming on his myspace.
  7. The Sunburst Band – Rough Times (Joey Negro Club Mix) – Z Records
    Perfect disco.
  8. The Sunburst Band – Journey To The Sun (Dennis Ferrer Remix) – Z Records
  9. Home & Garden feat. Chez Damier – In And Out (JT Donaldson Dub) – Om
  10. Groove Armada feat. Angie Stone – Feel The Same (Muthafunkaz Love Remix) – Strictly Rhythm
  11. Ricky L – Your House (*****L Remix)Ibadan
    Basically an Alanis Morissette remix. Heard it first when ND play it at Die Boot.
  12. Watussi – If All We Had Was Love – Sticky Disc
  13. Babytalk – Chance (Hercules & Love Affair Remix) – Sticky Disc
  14. Mariah Carey feat. LL Cool J – I’ll Be Lovin’ U Long Time (Remix) – Island
    I put this one at the end but it is another category. My favourite remix off E=MC².

Feel Free – Give Some Ac ck – Problem – You Got My

Let me start the seasonal chart blog with a list of second-hand vinyl I bought recently, 90ties house at its best:
D-Influence – No Illusions (MK’s Dumb Dub) – EastWest Records
Janet Jackson – Go Deep (Masters At Work Vocal Deep Disco Dub) – Virgin
Jeanne Harris – Just Another Man (Squeeze & Tease Me Mix) – Studio Records
Ceybil – Love So Special (Extended Original Underground Mix) – Atlantic

I had never heard the Mark Kinchen remix of No Illusions. I immediately fell in love with the vocals, the beats, shouts & groans. And so can you.

  1. K. Hand – Feel Free – Acacia
    Kelli Hand released 5 Cd’s of her remixes, often based on short vocal samples of deep house classics. Hysterical. Feel Free is my favourite track. I Can’t Take You Leaving Me, Reaction, I’ll Never Let You Down and Just Want You Back are also great. And many more. Viola introduced me to Kelli a while back: Do You Love Me starts with a fairground announcer shouting: “Jetzt bring’ ma wieder Schwung in die Kiste. Hey, ab geht die Post. Let’s Go. Let’s Fetz. Volle Pulle. Volle Power. Super.”
  2. Flora Cruz – Overcome EP – Mixtape Sessions Music
  3. Terence Parker – I’m Happy (Ron Carroll’s BMC Get Down Vocal Mix) feat. Bishop Edmound Griffin Sr – Superb
    First burner from Superb.
  4. The Anointed Pace Sisters – High Praise (Spen & Thommy Davis Dub Mix) – Superb
    Up. Lift Him up. Up. Up. I could live without the “hands together” chants but anyway. Lift Him up.
  5. Mary J. Blige – Just Fine (Jovonn Remix) – Promo
    Heard it first on Aaron-Carl’s weekly radio show. So Hot.
  6. Chaz Jankel – Get Myself Together (Hercules & Love Affair House Mix) – Tirk
  7. Roisin Murphy – You Know Me Better (Nightmoves Remix) – EMI
    Listen to the soon to be released mix on Roisin’s remix myspace.
  8. Chic – I Want Your Love (Todd Terje Edit)
  9. Hercules & Love Affair – Blind (Hercules Club Mix & Frankie Knuckles Remix) – DFA
    I’m ready for the next single already, which hopefully has a Marc Kinchen mix.
  10. Kalup Linzy – Asshole (Dance Remix)
  11. Colette – About Us (Derrick Carter’s B.H.Q. Vocal) – Om
    Has a touch of Kylie.
  12. Guy Robin Feat. Anthony Moriah – Bless You Brother (Underground Mix) – Hustle Music
  13. Mark Grant – Guessing Again (Yass Remix) feat. Russoul – Suburban
  14. Inner City – Pennies From Heaven (Slow To Speak Mix) – Virgin
    This is basically an edit of two previously available mixes: Deep Reese Mix & Kevin’s Tunnel Mix.
  15. Jesus Jackson – Damn (Jacob London Remix) – Physical Graffiti
    Funky Prince sounds on the Strictly Rhythm spin-off.

Drop It Like A Hot Potato

The Overpowered album by Roisin Murphy was finally released this week. A special limited edition double coloured LP is going to follow in November. It’s the pop-dance-electro-disco (whatever you want to call it) album for fall. My favourite song seems to change every other day, right now it is Body Language, which you can not listen to here but here.

  1. Aaron-Carl and DJ E. Dubb – The Door (Original Mix) – Wallshaker
    There is nothing better than an angry Aaron-Carl song.
    “I don’t want you no more. Pack your shit. Here’s the door.”
  2. Jill Scott – Hate On Me (Shelter Vocal) – Restricted Access
    Remixed by Quentin Harris. I’m always in on hater lyrics.
  3. Chuck Love – Beatdown (Jimpster Mix) – OM
    If you can’t get enough of the forward pushing Jimpster sound, I suggest his remix of 400 Years by Bob Marley and the Wailers. Trippin’.
  4. Kanye West feat. Dwele – Flashing Lights – Roc-A-Fella
    I still love the synth stabs on this one so much. It is the next single off Graduation. Is this the first time paparazzi is rhymed with Nazi?
    “Till I get flashed by the paparazzi
    Damn, these nigga’s got me,
    I hate these nigga’s more than the Nazis”
  5. Moodymann – I’d Rather Be Lonely – KDJ
  6. Grand High Priest – Long Time Coming (GHP Vocal) – Re-House
    Remix of A Change Is Gonna Come by Sam Cooke.
  7. Veronique – Use Me (Sunday Morning Dub, Afterhours Mix) – Wallshaker
    Another stompin’ AC production. The dub is quite peak hour, for later or earlier, there is the Afterhours Mix.
  8. Marlon D – Jesus Creates Sound (Main Mix) – Strictly Rhythm
    Don’t you love the cheesy “This is a journey into sound” sample, the hi-hats and cymbal clashes?
  9. Yass – He Reigns (Main) – Purple Music
    Gospel in da house.
  10. Marvin Gaye – Music (Karizma Remix) – Rotgut Records

Keeping Summer Hot

This looks more like a link dump than charts. Please bare with me.

without makeup

  1. The Brand New Heavies – Let’s Do It Again (Kenny Dope O-Gutta Remix) – Dope Wax
    After the remixes for “I Don’t Know Why (I Love You)“, here’s another stomper.
  2. Grand High PriestMixdown – Strictly Rhythm
    One of the first new releases on the relaunched Strictly Rhythm label. This instrumental track is a thunderstorm of hand claps and cowbells. Another highlight on the sampler is Quentin Harris feat. Cordell McClary – U Don’t Know. Both songs are now available on separate records, too.
  3. Marcus Mixx – Without Makeup (Ron Hardy Mix)Let’s Pet Puppies
    More Chicago house. Just recently found this record of previously unreleased Ron Hardy mixes. The label caught my attention: Chicago without Makeup. Dark handclaps.
  4. Feist – My Moon My Man (Boys Noize Classic Remix) – EMI
  5. Roisin Murphy – Overpowered (Seamus Haji Remix) – EMI
  6. Simian Mobile Disco – I Believe (Prins Thomas Diskomiks) – Wichita
  7. CSS – Let’s Make Love and Listen To Death From Above (Hot Chip Remix) – WEA
    Very dramatic Hot Chip mix that turns around half way through.
  8. Tracey Thorn – Raise the Roof (Cagedbaby Remix) – EMI
  9. Osunlade – Queen’s Battle – Strictly Rhythm
    From the Osunlade album. “Get that shit off my face.”
  10. Justin Timberlake – Love Stoned (Justice Remix) – Jive
    I heard Final Fantasy did the strings on that one. No? Anyway, can’t wait for a live version by Owen.
  11. 2raumwohnung – Ja (Just Us Remix) – It Sounds
    The lyrics make me cringe but the La Koehncke mix makes it all good.
  12. Chin Chin – Appetite (Chicken Lips Extended Vocal Mix) – Dialect Recordings
  13. Snax – Honeymoon’s Over (Konrad Black Remix) – Fine Music
    Maybe I even like the original version better, not sure.
  14. DJ Camacho – Me (Original Demo Mix By D Camacho) feat. Janae Jordan – 157 Shelter Records
    “I’d like a man not a boy who thinks he can understand what it is to be with a woman like me.”
  15. Prince – Future Baby Mama – Columbia
    I like that Future Baby Mama. I bet you want to listen to the full song after you listened to that clip. Please.

Spring Outside My Window

New season – new charts.

Let me start with my favourite album for spring:
Kathy Diamond – Miss Diamond to You – Permanent Vacation
I first heard about Kathy Diamond through Rich. I thought: Finally, this is a Maurice Fulton production I can enjoy. Too bad that her myspace has one song only. You can preview all songs at juno. For more on Kathy, read this Village Voice review.

  1. Simbad – Supersonic Revelation (Marathon Men Remix) / Soul Fever (Karizma’s K2 Stomp Mix) – Raw Fusion Records (check their jukebox)
    Double A side 12 inch deep house. Can’t decide which one is better.
  2. Aaron-Carl – Sky (Osunlade Yoruba Soul Vocal Mix)Superb
    Over the last year there have been a couple of remixes of this song. The recently released Osunlade mix is by far the best and deepest.
  3. DJ Spen & The MuthaFunkaz feat. Ann Nesby – It’s So Easy (MuthaFunkaz 12″ Vocal) – Code Red Recordings
    The former lead vocalist of the Sounds of Blackness belts it out on this one. The ‘4 The Love Mix’ is kind of a new turn on ‘4 The Love of House’ with spoken lyrics by DJ Spen.
  4. Beck – Cellphone’s Dead (Villalobos Entlebuch Rmx) – Interscope
    I’ve mumbled about this one before.
  5. Hercules and Love Affair – Athene – DFA
    Soon to be released hit on DFA.
  6. Justus Köhncke – Elan (Prins Thomas Versjon) – Kompakt
    Wonderful new version of the 2005 release featuring a live string section.
  7. Ruede Hagelstein – Yes, We’re Late – Freundinnen
    Includes the cut up Benjamin remix of Sweaty Balls.
  8. Jay-J feat. Charlene Moore – With Him (Ron Carroll’s BMC Black Gospel Feel Edit) – Defected
    Achtung: This is gospel house (who would have guessed).
  9. Hardsoul – My Life (Ron Carroll’s BMC 90’s Vocal Classical Mix) feat. Ron Carroll – Hardsoul
  10. Dajae & Bernard Badie – Tonight (Main Mix) – Tony Records
    The song is available for listening on Dajae’s myspace since last year, it got a short promotional release on traxsource earlier this year and I hope it’s available on vinyl soon.
  11. Bone Thugs-N-Harmony – Lil L.O.V.E. feat. Mariah Carey – Interscope
    While we wait for the new Mariah album we can enjoy this slow banger. I always love her collaborations with Bone Thugs, after Breakdown and the remix of Don’t Forget About Us, this is the third one.
  12. Nelly Furtado – Say It Right (Dummies Remix) – Geffen
    When people ask me if I really like Nelly, I tell them: I’m not living in Toronto’s Portuguese neighborhood for nothing, right? The house-with-a-bit-of-electro mix is easy to find. Google it. Please.
  13. Junior Boys – In The Morning (Hot Chip Remix) – Domino
  14. DJ Le Roi feat. Roland Clark – I Get Deep (Original Mix) – Deeptown Music

Last but not least, here are a few old school classics I recently bought at Easy Street Records:
Storm – Love…Sexy (Blaze Vocal)
Truce – It’s Alright (Cassmaster Mix & Cassio’s Fever Mix)

Trag Nicht Soviel Dreck Rein

Here are my winter charts, but really, I am only listening to Tracey Thorn’s new album, Out Of The Woods (thanks bb). When I heard the opening song, I was quite shocked, thinking I was listening to Sinead O’Connor. That changed with the second song, A-Z, which is one of my favourites.
Although, she uses a lot of phrases (some of them (may be) worn out), it works for me.

You’ve been balanced on a knife
Will the city save your life
You’ve been waiting for so long
Just for somewhere to feel like home

Two more songs need to be singles: Grand Canyon and Raise The Roof. And there is a nice cover version of Arthur Russell’s Get Around To It.

Balanced
Panda’s been balanced on a knife

I have included links to listen to the songs (#), a lot of them on myspace. Do not judge.

  1. Dennis Ferrer – The World As I See It – Defected – (#)
    This is my favourite deep house album at the moment. Church Lady is the lead single for me. There are a couple of remixes that got released recently but the original is still the best.
  2. Deichkind – Remmi Demmi (Egoexpress Remix D) – Universal – (#)
    I totally missed this one when it was released in Spring of 2006. It just didn’t make it to Canada. 70ties German Bürgerlichkeit mit Katja E. und Sauna und so. The cover looks a bit like an old Bernhard Willhelm collection. Video.
  3. Arnold Jarvis – If I Stay (Jus’ Dope Remix) – Kif – (#)
  4. Vernessa Mitchell – Higher (Silk’s Original Mix) – Silk
    Viola recommended this one after she found it on a disc that Pirahnahead gave her. Extremely uplifting.
  5. Mr. White – You Rock Me / The Sun Can’t Compare – Alleviated Records – (#)
    This one appears on so many DJ lists it is unbelievable. Double A side.
  6. Justus Köhncke – Overhead – Kompakt – (#)
  7. Gary Bardouille – Starting Over (Aaron’s Stripped Down Church Edit) – Soul Heaven – (#)
    He seems to have a very fresh myspace profile with more gospel house songs.
  8. SUMO – Lovebeat (Karizma’s K2 Darq Dub) ft. Clarisse Muvemba – Heya Hifi – (#)
  9. Anane – Walking On Thin Ice (Masters At Work Dub) – Vega – (#)
  10. Kompis – In Somebody’s Spot (Ralph Myerz Space Shuttle Shuffle Mix) – Sunday Best – (#)
  11. Alexkid ft. Liset Alea – Nightshade (Rodriguez Junior Mix) – F Communications – (#)
  12. Ianeq – The Focaccia Pretext – Mental Groove – (#)
    Das geht so ab. funky.
  13. Jesse Rose – You’re All Over My Head / Evening Standard – Dubsided – (#)
    Sabs said You’re All Over My Head has the sound of a lesbian disco in Paris.

My Autumn Charts

It seems I am more comfortable with posting my DJ charts every season/quarter instead of every month. What do you think?
Sometimes I have a small crisis, thinking that there are not enough NEW deep house or house records. But then, it is just me and it looks like I haven’t done my homework. No time to worry, listen to the top 3 on the chart and everything is alright.

Also, the next Hotnuts party is this Saturday, I’ll post the details later.
Please go to Movin’ Records myspace and listen to She’s Crazy. She’s Gaga.

  1. Mo.Ca feat. Michelle Weeks – Nobody (Scream Club Mix) – Coffee Killer
    This has to be the most hysterical house song in a very long time. Michelle Weeks is the best, she belts it out like no other: I ain’t got nobody! The structure of the song is a bit similar to Be Thankful. Found the record through Tony Humphries charts. Listen to a sample.
  2. Roland Clark – Sunshine (Ron Trent Vocal Mix) – Need 2 Soul
    Roland Clark – God Is Good (DJ Spen Main Mix) – Soul Heaven
    Roland Clark double trouble. Sunshine has such an incredibly deep house sound. Listen to this gem at the Need 2 Soul myspace site. Further into the song Roland’s falsetto changes to his deeper voice. So good. Und diese tollen Flächen.
    If you want to go to church, listen to God Is Good (DJ Spen Main Mix). Another hit.
  3. Byron Stingily – Hate Won’t Change Me (Shelter Vocal) – Un-Restricted Access
    Again, wonderful vocals. I’m kind of out of words after #1 and 2.
  4. Kamar – I Need You (50% Dub) – Madhouse Records
    This is a song from 1994 which I found at a second hand record store a few weeks ago. The original is produced by Kerri Chandler and this remix takes it over the top. Very hysterical intro.
  5. Arthur Russell – Springfield (DFA Remix) – Audika
    I can sit on metal steps.
  6. Grampa – She’s Crazy (Yahya Insane Mix) – Movin’ Records
    She’s gaga. She’s crazy. Vocals by Kerri Chandler’s dad on my favourite old school house label. I like to pitch it up when I play it. Faster. Maybe I want this as my theme song.
  7. Cassy – Night To Remember (from the My Auntie EP) – Perlon
    Is this minimal already? Dunno. Lovin’ the somehow detached vocals.
    (via chantilly bass)
  8. Badly Drawn Boy – Nothing’s Gonna Change Your Mind (Hot Chip Mix) – EMI
    For those melancholic autumn hours. Listen.
  9. Justus Köhncke feat. Eric D. Clark – An Ounce Of Memories (Vocal Version) – Firm
    Listen at firm records’ or Justus Köhncke’s myspace page. Dreamy. Charmy.
  10. Kerri Chandler & Monique Bingham – In The Morning (Lost Love Dub) – Bigga Sounds
    The Final Raw Mix on the A side is a bit softer and features vocals by Monique. Love the dub.
  11. Aaron-Carl – Sky (AC’s Resurrection Mix) – Wallshaker
    Still waiting for the vinyl. Get the mp3 at Aaron’s Wallshaker label.
  12. Pelle Boi – Robert Schmidt am Telefon (from the I’m A Popperschwein EP) – Kritik
    Robert Smith on The Phone. For that Cure flavour. Very Lullaby off of Disintegration. Anzuhören bei LaManie.
  13. Brooks – Pre – Mantis
  14. Kate Bush – King Of The Mountain (Radioslave Mix) – One-sided 12″
    The wind is whistling through the house.
  15. Pink Skull – Unicorn Harpoon – Tonearm
    Sounds like alien voices to me. I’ll always adore that.

Summer Charts

I have to take a short break from the What produzentin eats theme week as I go on a holiday for a couple of days. I probably will have some very relaxing pictures later this week.

But first, here are my summer charts and another Larry Levan remix for your mp3 collection. I downloaded a mix of Winners by Manfriday in June. After a few listens I really wanted to have the vinyl of the song, so I orderd a copy on ebay. It turns out, the version on the official release is totally different, sounding more like a cheap 80ties dance track. Soon I found out, that this Larry Levan demo mix is only available on a bootleg 12 inch and on a japanese compilation CD. I still have to track down either of them. Anyway, enjoy.

They don’t seem to love you more
When you’re winning
They don’t seem to love you
Nobody really wants you
When your loosing
They don’t really love you

Winners – loosers
What’s the good side of you

Oh, the World Cup has arrived at my crib. Superschum and H. are staying over for a few nights and they brought this adorable Nutella ball. I love it so much, guess my diet has to wait. Schum and H. made me watch my first World Cup game from start to finish, Germany vs. Argentina. I’m in love with Odo now (this was easy, right?). Make sure to read his A-Z.

sweet things

  1. Fox N’ Wolf – Claws Against Knives (Todd Terje Remix) – Kitsune
    This is my summer hit. Squeaky vocals and bubbling beats. I wanted to post the song but I am afraid the lovely guys from Kitsune might sue my little ass. It’s on the Kitsune Maison 2 compilation. Here samples of the song here and here. Wow.
  2. Jamie Lidell – When I Come Back Around (Freeform Reform) – Warp
    This is from his Multiply Additions remix album. After all the Jamie – Prince comparisons he finally gets a Prince beat in the mix: Raspberry Beret provides a perfect backdrop for the song.
  3. Man Friday – Winners (Larry Levan Demo Mix)
  4. Kirk Franklin – Looking For You – Gospocentric
    I heard it first on the radio but didn’t know who it was. I wanted to have this song so badly as it re-sings the hook from Patrice Rushen’s disco classic Haven’t You Heard. Then I found it at fourfour.
  5. Jimpster feat. Diamondancer – A Love Like This – Freerange
    This sounds like part 2 of Delano Smith feat. Diamondancer – A Message For The DJ (Jimpsters Red Light Remix). Diamondancer sings/reads her lyrics above the forward grooving Jimpster beats. Listen.
  6. Peaches – Downtown – XL Recordings
    I haven’t figuered out which Prince beat she is sampling. Sounds a bit like Vanity 6 or Apollonia 6.
  7. Lisa Shaw – Let It Ride (Speakeasy Remix) – Naked Music
  8. Snax And Ianeq – Fill Me Up (M.A.N.D.Y. Edit) – Get Physical
  9. Christian Rottler – Feuer – Freundinnen
    The song finally sees the light of day, I had the promo version for a while now and I still like the original singer-songwriter version best. The remixes are more in the electro vein. Listen to more Christian Rottler songs on his homepage.
  10. Only Freak feat. Rasiyah – Can’t Get Away (From Your Love) (Solid Groove Remix) – Freerange

April Charts

I hope it feels like a hyperhyperscooterupdate to you. The charts have 15 songs this month, a mp3 and I put pictures of our last Acid Records party online.

  1. Prince – Love – Universal
    Prince had his first number one debut on the billboard charts with 3121 and hence he has to be #1 on my charts, too. This is my favourite song from the album.
  2. Colonel Abrams – Love on a Cutting Edge (Dance Vocal Mix) – Nardi
    Entrancing house record I discovered in New York.
  3. Cajmere feat. Dajae – Say U Will (Original Mix) – Cajual #292
    The Green Velvet Vocal Mix (from Cajual #293) is rockier, I can’t decide which one I like best.
  4. Kanye West feat. Twista & Keyshia Cole – Impossible
    New Kanye for Misson Impossible 3.
  5. The National Trust – Kings and Queens – Thrill Jockey Records
    Malo pointed me to this fantastic record. I always fall for a little bit of that funky Prince sound. Love the cover and the title.
  6. Jamie Lewis – It’s Over feat. Michael Watford (Main Mix) – Purple Music
    Classic Michael Watford vocals & lyrics. Buy it at Purple Switzerland.
  7. Cheri – Murphy’s Law – Venture Records
    Piranhahead pressed this 12″ into my hands when we went to a used record store in Detroit. I hadn’t heard the 1982 hit. I instantly fell for the great opening lines: “I hate to tell you, but I got a bit of bad news – I don’t love you no more” and the speed up background vocals.
  8. Tiga – The sultry songs from Sexor: Sir Sir Sir, (Far From) Home – PIAS
    I didn’t like the album when I listened to it a few weeks ago but now I’m into the sultry songs.
  9. The Todd Terry Project – Weekend – various labels
    Cover of the Leroy Burgess classic. Fantastic & hysterical mid-90ties Todd Terry beats.
  10. Journey Into Paradise: The Larry Levan Story – Rhino
    A new Larry Levan compilation with songs he spun and remixes he did.
  11. Geiger – Talk To Me (from the Day 12″) – Firm
  12. Goldfrapp – Ride a White Horse (Ewan Pearson Disco Odyssey Parts 1 & 2) – Mute
    15 min. of electro disco fun of which I like the first 6 min. best, guess this is Part I.
  13. Jens Friebe – Lawinenhund (Egoexpress Remix B Goddamned Bunker Edit) – EMI
    Very techno for my taste, but anyway, it’s Jens Friebe. Most of the lyrics are stripped except for “Du warst begraben, in diesem gottverdammten Laden”. Handclaps.
  14. Coldcut feat. Robert Owens – Walk A Mile In My Shoes – Ninja Tune
  15. P!NK – Who Knew – LaFace
    This is the obvious choice for the next single off the new P!NK album. Very catchy. Just checked her site and she is shooting a video for the song! Wow, can’t wait.

Cheri, amour.Buy Cheri, although I like the original album artwork to the left better.

Almost Spring Charts

  1. Kerri Chandler – Halleluhjah (Kaoz Club Mix) – King Street
    Found this mid 90ties classic at a used record store. I was instantly blown away by the beats and lyrics.
  2. Jam & Spoon feat. Plavka – Right In The Night (MK Mix) – Epic
    More 90ties stuff. Back then, I collected MK, but wasn’t aware of the Jam & Spoon remix. The song is a guilty pleasure for me, as I was always afraid to admit my love. The remix is classic Marc Kinchen, who is a cutie too. You may know his worldwide hit by the Nightcrawlers – Push The Feeling On (listen at radio.club.blog). Hope he comes back to house music.
  3. Hot Chip – Over And Over (Justus Köhncke”™s Baking Horse Club Mix) – EMI UK
    Now that the mix has finally been released (with a different name, though) I had to put it on my charts a second time. It is so good. The Hot Chip tour will be hitting Toronto on March 15th.
  4. Kerri Chandler – So Let the Wind Come (Remix) – Nitegrooves (no. 246)
    A new Kerri record with a straight beat. Good for learning how to beat mix if you ask me.
  5. Fonda Rae – Over Like a Fat Rat – Vanguard Records
    You know I love this one.
  6. Flat Pack – Sweet Child Of Mine (Mylo Club Mix) – Breastfed Recordings
    Wonderful electro cover of Guns’n’Roses.
  7. Tiga – Good As Gold (Morgan Geist Monophonic Mix) – PIAS
  8. Rihanna – S.O.S. (Rescue Me) – DefJam
    Sounds like a mash-up. This is going to be a hit. For sure. Not only because of the Tainted Love sample. Stream available at her website.
  9. Felix (Arthur Russell & Nicky Siano) – Tigerstripes – Sleeping Bag Records
  10. Prince – Black Sweat – Universal/NPG
  11. Romanthony – Falling From Grace (Murk Main Mix) – Azuli
    Even more 90ties. I love Romanthony and the Murk boys. Again, didn’t get the remix back then, here it is available as a mp3 download. The original version is fabulous too. The whole Azuli backcatalog seems to be up for download at juno, btw.

Limited mp3: Jam & Spoon – Right In The Night (MK Mix)
Buy: CA / DE

Right in the night you’ll find
That if you wanna fall in love, you fall in love

Winter charts

The winter charts are heavily influenced by the parties that Viola, Georg and I organized in Cologne and Frankfurt. Piranhahead worked a lot of these wonderful records. As he would say: You can’t sleep on this.

  1. Cajmere feat. Dajae – Brighter Days (Underground Goodies Mix) – Cajual Records
    This is one of my all time favourite house classics from 1992. I forgot about it until Pirahnahead played it in Frankfurt. I went crazy for the cut up vocals.
  2. Jamie Lewis presents Michelle Weeks – Be Thankful – Purple Music
    Uplifting. This was one of Georg’s favourite records of the evening. Be thankful. Buy it online.
  3. Mary J. Blige – The Breakthrough – Universal
    I’ve written about the album before. It’s on heavy rotation. Mary at her best.
  4. Sounds of Blackness – The Pressure (Classic 12″ Mix With Vocal Intro) – Perspective Records
    Released in 1991 with lead vocals by Ann Nesby this is a classic gospel house record remixed by Frankie Knuckles. The intro is fantastic.
  5. Jill Scott – Not Like Crazy (K-Dope Woo Dubba Mix) – Dopewax
    One of Viola’s favourite records of the Pirahnahead set. Unresistable beats and seducing vocals.
  6. Hot Chip – Just Like We (Breakdown) (DFA Remix) – EMI
    No matter what they put out, I like it. Also fantastic: My Shit’s On Fire, from their recent Barbarian EP.
  7. Karizma Ft. DJ Spen – For the Love (of House) (Vocal Mix) – Code Red
  8. Ann Nesby – Shelter (Vocal Mix) – God’s House Records
    Ann Nesby overload.
  9. Kanye West – Addiction (Terry Hunter & Kenny Dope Remix) – Dopewax
    Kanye goes house.
  10. Kenny Bobien feat. Ann Nesby – Spread Love (Shelter Mix) – Soul Groove Records
    Find a way to show somebody that you care.

October Hits

Update. Platz 3 vergessen. Schrecklich.

  1. Aaron-Carl – Detrevolution – Wallshaker
    Nur noch drei Wochen bis Aaron-Carl in Köln und Frankfurt auflegt! Das Album ist sowas von hey wow.
  2. Kate Bush – Sexual Healing – EMI
    Das hätte die erste Single vom neuen Album sein sollen. Nach 12 Jahren zurück mit dieser Cover Version. Leider nur die B-Seite zu King Of The Mountain. Sie singt es “sex-sual”. Sehr lustig. Und der Anfang: I’m hot just like an oven. Tolle Vorstellung. So gut wie ihre Interpretation von Candle In The Wind.
  3. Bernadette La Hengst – La Beat – Trikont
    Besonders: Copy Me (I Want To Travel), Rockerbraut & Mutter, Wer Hat Das Glück versteckt?, Zug Ohne Bremse, Krachgarten, Hunger, La Beat Goes On
  4. Kimara Lovelace – Misery (Lil’ Louis Extended Club Mix) – King Street
    Danke, Viola. Ein Hammer Remix, der ursprünglich in 2000 veröffentlicht wurde und vor kurzem ein Re-Release bekam. Sowieso bin ich Lil’ Louis Fan und würde gerne wissen, warum er so selten Remixe oder ein neues, eigenes Album rausbringt?
  5. Fiona Apple – Extraordinary Machine – Sony
  6. Tainted LunchSafety Scissors – Sunlight’s On The Other Side – Scape Music
    Mein absoluter Lieblingshit von dem Tainted Lunch Album. Ganz tolles Cover!
  7. Sugardaddy – Love Honey – Tirk
    Ist ein Remix von dem Paradise Garage Hit: Man Friday – Love Honey, Love Heartache, wovon es einen super Larry Levan Mix gibt.
  8. Sebastien Tellier – La Ritournelle (Sven Love & Catalan FC Remix) – Record Makers
    Auch im Original wunderschöne Streicher.
  9. Quizz feat. Emilie Chick – Bag U Should (Charles Webster’s Remixes) – Art Brut
  10. The Mighty Quark feat. Jesper Dahlbäck – Disco Blood – Ork Recordings
  11. Annie – Always Too Late (Joakim Vocal Mix) – 679 Recordings
    Im herrlichen, orangen Vinyl.

September charts – Back To The Raw

  1. Kanye West – Late Registration – Roc-A-Fella
    I’m still on the Kanye trip. Maybe it won’t stop.
  2. Hot Chip – Over And Over (Laid Back Remix By Justus Köhncke) – Moshi Moshi
    This wonderful remix should be out in October or November. First single from their new album. I loved the last one, Coming On Strong. Also, try to get a hold of "I Don’t Know The Half Of How To Have A Hope Of Holding Back". Love the title. I guess it is on the current Groove CD. And, I’m trying to build a link here, listen to Ladytron – Destroy Everything You Touch (Hot Chip Remix).
  3. Delano Smith feat. Diamondancer – A Message For The DJ (Jimpsters Red Light Remix) – Still Music
    Wurde mir von meiner DJ-Schwester Viola empfohlen. Direkt-re-import aus Detroit. Und auf dem Song über House Music zu reden ist einfach Thema.
  4. Tiga – You Gonna Want Me (12 Inch Dance Mix) – Pias
    If this is not enough, then listen to Zdar – Don’t U Want (Tiga Remix) – Turbo
  5. The Mighty Quark – Disco Blood feat. Jesper Dahlbäck – Ork
  6. Baxendale – Come Home With Me Baby
    From the Dead or Alive tribute album, Rocket. Fantastic. 10 times better than the original, but the lyrics are still in the great Dead or Alive style. A few years back, I saw a picture of Pete Burns in a british magazine with the subtitle: Looking increasingly like Cher. This is exactly why I love his look.
  7. Gwen Stefani – Cool (Richard X Remix) – Universal
    (available via fluxblog). Electro-Harmonie. Auch super, sein Mix von Ciara feat. M.I.A. – Goodies
  8. Kate Bush – King Of The Mountain – EMI
    The wind is whistling. Drawing by Bertie.
  9. Kerri Chandler – Back To The Raw (Dark Mix) – Deeply Rooted House
    Noch mehr Viola Importe! Bring it on! Raw oldschool. More house talk.
  10. The Juan Maclean – Give Me Every Litte Thing (Cajmere Remix)
    Das Original ist schon etwas älter. Jetzt mehr aggro.

August Charts – Denk dir irgendeine Farbe

  1. Chelonis R. Jones – Dislocated Genius (Album) & Le Bateau Ivre (Remixes) – Get Physical
    Chelonis finde ich seit der ersten Single One & One aus 2002 super. Danach kam das wunderbare I Don’t Know, ein zweiter Hit. Beide sind auf dem Album, daneben gibt es 10 neue Songs. Von diesen finde ich Vultures und die Mythologies Triologie sehr sehr gut. Eins der besten elektronischen Alben von 2005. Sehr deep, Texte und Musik. Auf der neuen Single, Le Bateau Ivre, gibt es einen Fairy Remix (aka Tiga und Jesper Dahlbäck). Das Album wird Mitte September veröffentlicht.
  2. Jens Friebe – Gespenster (Daso Remix) / Nachher Bilder EP – Kompakt
    Wer sollte dieser Jens Friebe nun sein, fragte ich mich im Plattenladen. Ich konnte mich dunkel daran erinnern, dass ich den Namen schon bei Freunden gehört hatte. Kurz darauf kam die Bestätigung per sms: Lieblingsalbum letztes Jahr, Remixe noch nicht gefunden, Kerstin Grether hat während Jens Konzert alle Texte mitgesungen. OK, gekauft, schliesslich bin ich so auch zur P!NK Fanin geworden. Auf der EP gibt es noch einen Rick Astley haften Mix von Gespenster. Prima.
  3. Painted Nails – Silk Cherries – Prize Records
    Hot new label from Toronto. This is their 3rd release. Ich bin nicht so ein Instrumental Fan, aber dieses Stück ist so uplifting! Wow!
  4. Gorillaz – Dare (DFA Remix) – EMI
  5. Kerri Chandler – Bar A Thym – NiteGrooves
    Im Plattenladen verschmäht, dann via malorama dafür begeistert. Disco power!
  6. Andre Kraml feat. Schad Privat – Dirty Fingernails – Firm
  7. Cassidy – I’m A Hustla (Remix) feat. Mary J. Blige – J Records
  8. Kanye West feat. Jamie Foxx – Gold Digger – Universal
  9. Mixed With Love – The Walter Gibbons Salsoul Anthology – Suss’d/Salsoul UK
  10. Röyksopp feat. Chelonis R. Jones – 49% – EMI

Jens Friebe nennt sie Gespenster. Chelonis R. Jones nennt sie Vultures.

Du fällst und es fällt ein Lichtstrahl
Auf die Trümmer deiner Gier
In den verlassenen Festsaal
Nur weg von hier
Und du schliesst das Fenster
Und du vergisst deine Gespenster

Vultures flying overhead
Damn these vultures
Should have listened when they’ve said
My worst nightmare came true
They terrorize my comfort zone
They never leave my ass alone

July Charts

After I’ve read Loves Saves The Day I started buying music that was mentioned in the book or was remixed by Larry Levan. As Gwen Guthrie was introduced as “the first lady of Paradise Garage” at the club”™s closing party, she is on top of my list this month. Larry Levan did alot of her remixes. I bought Padlock as a re-issue vinyl album, where the first LP has the original versions produced by Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare and the second LP has the remixes by Larry Levan. You just need these two records to DJ. Switch between them all night long. This will make everyone happy. The original versions are very funky and crisp, the remixes ar a little bit more disco. Fantastic. And I like Gwen’s lyrics, as she can’t decide what she wants:

Don’t teach me, I’m electric, And If you touch me, I’ll shock you (Hopscotch)
Come On, Spread Yourself, All Over Me, Like Peanut Butter (Peanut Butter)

It is a shame that her first two albums are not available on CD. I will try to get the vinyl…

On a related note, Identify NYC Clubs has pictures and information on 22 NYC clubs.

  1. Gwen Guthrie – Padlock – Original on Larry Levan’s Garage label
  2. Sparkle – Handsome Man (Remix) – from the double CD Larry Levan – The Definitive Salsoul Mixes ’78 – ’83
    I love the lyrics of the song, very gay! And it does sound a little bit like Homer Simpson is singing (in a very good way). Other great tracks on the compilation are: Bunny Sigler – By The Way You Dance and Logg – I Know You Will.
  3. Kids In The Streets Ft. Chez Damier – Keep On Turning (Motorcitysoul Original Dub) – Stir15
    This is such a Chez Damier classic! Wow!
  4. Voices – Bring Down The Walls – Nu Groove 107
  5. House Of Peace – Such A Feeling – Nu Groove 106
  6. Louie Vega – V Gets Jazzy (Dance Ritual Mix) feat. Mr. V – Vega Records
  7. M.I.A. – Bucky Down Gun, Sunshowers, Pull Up The People – XL Recordings
    Every time I’ve been to Nancy’s place in recent months, she played Arular for me. So finally, these are my favourite tracks from the CD.
  8. Glashaus – Haltet die Welt an – 3P
    I always fall for Glashaus. Very hängengeblieben.
  9. Sebastien Tellier – La Ritournelle – EMI France
  10. Tiefschwarz – Damage (featuring Tracey Thorn) – Fine Records

Summer Charts

  1. Lady Bunny – Sneakin’ & Fuck With You – Demo
    I love her nasty Michael Jackson interpretation of Rock With You.
  2. Joe Lewis – Midnight Dancin’ (Dancin’ Mixx) / He’s Back EP – Peacefrog
    Re-release of a classic I didn’t know… The cover artwork is very good, too!
  3. Bernard Badie feat. Dajae – Train – Cajual
    More Oldschool.
  4. Geiger – Out Of Tune Album – Firm
    Meine Favoriten sind: Cocain-e, Bless The Lord und Sunday.
  5. Brooks – Enormous’ Members Club EP – Soundslike
    Besonders den Hot Chip’s Woman Of The World Remix von Roxxy. Sehr sommerlich.
  6. Missy Elliott – Partytime, Cant’ Stop, Teary Eyed – Elektra
    Das sind meine Lieblingslieder vom Cookbook. Partytime produziert von Timbaland, Can’t Stop produziert von Rich Harrison.
    Auf meinem iPod habe ich dazu noch eine Rich Harrison Miniplaylist eingerichtet: Missy – Can’t Stop, Amerie ft. Eve – 1 Thing, Usher – Take Your Hand
  7. Jamie Lidell – When I Come Back Around – Warp
  8. Doshhammer – Rock With Me – Max.i
