A collection of stompers, bangers, fire - whatever your preferred 
term is for a hard track that makes the dancefloor go nuts!

As the name would suggest, a nice jackin tech house bomb packed with low-slung bass, beeps and bleeps, flawless use of hi-hats, and plenty of swagger thanks to a dope vocal that only adds to this jam's party-inducing effect. Tapesh has been on fire!

High-energy, unpredictable track that goes in a few different directions before hitting a deep-bass climax that even adds some electro-style synths over a quick house beat. LA house legend Doc Martin killing it! Sounds like something that would get the crowds at Holy Ship pumped up...for any of you who may be going :)

Bangin' new remix of 1988 classic "Big Fun" by Detroit legend/techno-creator Kevin Saunderson and vocalist Paris Grey, aka Inner City. The original is one of two Inner City songs listed among house music's most influential, but Full Intention did a great job giving it a modern touch while conserving its old school flair and keeping it perfect for clubs.

P.S. The other Inner City jam that hit #1 on the charts,
and my personal favorite: Inner City - Good Life

Another dancefloor-slayer with futuristic sounds but an old school core. Yet another big hit from the Hot Creations catalog and heavy-hitter Richy Ahmed

A recent obsession of mine - raw house with a blissful melody and perfectly-used vocals. Words won't do it justice.

Any other Jamie Jones fans? His latest EP kills, this one being my favorite. Filthy, druggy, techy, and as a friend put it, "So Ibiza." Get lost in it.

I was a few months late on this hidden gem; a friend shared it with me so I thought I should do the same. Deep/tech/trippy awesomeness, serious groove, and stellar use of vocal samples! Enjoy-

Lots of remixes are made as harder, clubbier interpretations of tracks, but that's a tough feat if the original is done by techno/electro legend Tiga. The Turbo Recordings boss offers a synth- and bass-laden beast that makes crowds of any size lose it. Still, rising star Danny Daze ups the energy by replacing vocals and effects with a healthy dose of raw techno while raising the tempo to 126, resulting in a bomb packing a clean but heavy punch. Here are both versions for your consideration:

Original Mix

Danny Daze Dub

I like closing with throwbacks, but not feeling that today. This next cut is off the new compilation from my good friends at Culprit LA. It's been nice watching the label blow up, and newcomer Lonely Boy seems to be headed down the same path. The track deceivingly begins on a melancholic note which evolves into a warmer deep house/nu-disco feeling - a technique similar to that of underground idol and personal hero Lee Burridge, whom the producer admitted drawing inspiration from.

In my humble opinion, these are among my highest-quality tunes and I hope everyone agrees. There's a lot more where these came from, and I'll be following up this post with a selection of deeper, trippier tracks now that I've thrown in some party tunes.


Couldn't resist adding this set - first track is chill, then it's only proper house heaters all the way through! I consider Dyed Soundorom one of the best DJs out there easily; his headlining spot in the main room of fabriclondon for NYE shows I'm not the only one!...

As always, it's been a pleasure putting music together for everyone to experience. Much love.
