See all the top 10 tracks of 2016 guest selections.


The Groupies – The Groupies Are Insane

The Groupies - The Groupies Are Insane

DJ Overdose and Cliff Lothar teaming up on this one to create one of my top tracks of the year. The synth/acid/electro/house hybrid sound which reminds me of summer, playing while the sun goes down.


Justin Cudmore – Crystal

Played in probably every one of my sets this year since its release. The Mike Servito remix seems to have gotten all the attention but I wayyyy prefer this version with the camp vocal sample and it’s kind of fun rippling sound.


E Myers – Hate

E Myers-Hate (2016)

The 707, the strings and the big cheesy trumpet. It works and it feels goooood!


Marie Davidson – Naive To The Bone

The spoken-word style vocal over those beats, I fell in love with this track the second I heard it, initially thinking it was old until I heard the “It’s 2016, get real lyric”.

Marie Davidson -  Naive To The Bone


Mr. Fingers – Aether

Mr Fingers - Aether (B2 on Outer Acid EP)

Deep, emotive music from the house music legend Larry Heard. The entire EP is incredible.


Virginia – Funkert

Virginia - Funkert (Extended Version) [VIRGINIA001]

Feel good house music that reminds me of long summer days on Inis Oirr. Production in particular on this incredible and the dub version hasn’t left my bag in a while.


Jirafee -Out tha’ box

Jiraffe - Out'a The Box (Crazy Club Dub Mix)

Cheating with this one, but it had been on my Wantlist for FOREVER and got repressed this year. It encompasses so many of the things I love in an old record, with that proto-house sound.


Shariff Laffrey – Key Jam (A.C.I.D.)

Sharif Laffrey - Key Jam (A.C.I.D.)

Again, so many sounds I love in a record wrapped up in one. Always gets the party going when those freestyle synths kick in.


Red Rack ‘Em – Wonky Disco Banger

Red Rack'em - Wonky Bassline Disco Banger

Super fun party track. The title pretty much sums the record up. I always love seeing people’s reaction as they hear it for the first time.


Voiski – Happy Piece For Happy People Piece

Voiski - Happy Piece For Happy People Piece [DKMNTL-UFO3]

A weird, tingly, infectious track that really resonates through you.
