Excitement levels are at fever pitch at HD HQ this week. We’re counting down the days until we can shake a leg to the supreme selections of Wolf Music on Friday night at Basing House.
We caught up with the lads to see what’s been on heavy rotation for them this summer. Feast your ears on the results:
Carrie Lucas – Dance With You (Marquis Hawkes edit) (Homesick): Dancefloor destroyer.
Jon Cutler – It’s Yours (Chez): Guilty pleasure from 2001. Yes, it was played to death 14 years ago but time has passed and it still sounds good.
Andras & Oscar – Looking Back (Tornado Wallace Remix) (Dopeness Galore): 100% Australia. Winning combo.
Sweet Thunder ‘Everybody’s Singing Love Songs’ (Fantasy): Sublime soul-stepper. Music that gets you moving.
Labelle ‘Phoenix (The Amazing Flight of a Lone Star): Patti Labelle’s voice is incredible and the arrangement on this record is equally incredible. The record builds and builds, full of emotion. Strings, piano, voice, all of my favourite elements combine to pack a serious punch. You need to listen to the whole song to really get it, and once you do, I’m sure you will love it too.
Wick Blaze – Took My Love (Optimo): Very useful bridging tool that allows me as a DJ to take the mood whichever way I feel after playing this track.
Armando – 151 (Gallop / Warehouse): Classic Acid Jackin’ from Armando. Raw Chicago shit. Mike Dunn on production too, and Mike Dunn does not mess.
