Orange Tree Edits

Dorian (Jimmy Rouge Edit)

The fourth in the series of Orange Tree Edits allows the label owner to shine with this exotic tune.

39.

Julie McDermott

Don’t Go (Gerd Janson Re-work)

The master brings some heft to this rave classic.

38.

Roisin Murphy

Plaything

All of Roisin Murphy’s 12″s with Maurice Fulton this year are great but two songs stand out, this is the first.

37.

Chaka Khan

Like Sugar

A surprise banger from Chaka Khan with producer Switch and a Lumo Club favourite.

36.

River Yarra

Respiration Alternée avec Elen Huynh

This song from the Australian producer stays weird the longer you listen to it.

35.

Soulwax

Essential Four

A highlight from Soulwax’s album they made out of their Essential Mix. This sets the tone early in the night.

34.

Red Axes

Sipoor

A motorik off-kilter pulsating dream on Phantasy Sound.

33.

Lone

Temples

Lone’s music is always worth listening and buying and this Ambivert Tools Volume Three highlight was my favourite of his from 2018.

32.

Pushing Movies

Thinking About You (Lauer remix)

I love tunes that go for an epic sound and this Lauer remix does that by building on the original’s Italo synth pop.

31.

Ouri

Hypersensis

More grand sounds but this time, Montreal-based producer Ouri rivals Jon Hopkins in sheer scale.

30.

Pumphouse Gang

Welcome Back to My Life


Curtain closer disco from Ireland, as heard on the brilliant Quare Grooves compilation on All City’s archival imprint AllChival.

29.

Lauer

Realistic

My favourite track from Lauer’s full-length Power. Say it out loud.

28.

Parquet Courts

Wide Awake (Danny Krivit remix)

The original is already a club-ready post-punk shaker but Danny Krivit gives it extra spark.

27.

Mind Enterprises

S.H.A.K.E.

More people should make Italo disco music these days.

26.

Pional

Time of the G’s

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RXmBnsQTtoU

A late entry released in November that displays Pional’s ability with wide frequencies.

25.

Charlotte Adigery

Paténipat

Another Deewee favourite from Charlotte Adigery aka Wwwater.

24.

Palermo Disco Squad

La Favorita

Italo-rooted electro-disco.

23.

Jon Hopkins

Everything Connected

As much a master of sound design as he is transportive electronic music, playing this on a good soundsystem only reinforces Hopkins’ attention to details and dexterity with frequency and texture.

22.

Nathan Micay

First Casualty

A Young Marco-esque cut from Whities 017. That’s a smiley-headed melody from the man formerly known as Bwana.

21.

Marquis Hawkes & Jamie Lidell

We Should Be Free

Always nice to hear Jamie Lidell over a big groove and this one goes pretty large.
