Pon de floor
Whether you're partying at a house, warehouse or abandoned mosque this weekend, make sure these numbers worm their way into your playlists:
Christoph Andersson - Capital
I've been waiting excitiedly all week to post this....and racking up some serious play count throughout. Christoph Andersson is a New Orleans teenager making sublime electro with hints of French disco - his name possibly going some way to explaining the latter influence. It makes me want to sort a house party just to build a playlist around it.
Chromeo - Hot Mess (Duck Sauce Remix)
Having dominated the whole entire world with Barbra Streisand last year, Duck Sauce are back in action, lending their hand to Chromeo's hit Hot Mess. And doing a prety damn good job of it too.
Rox - I Don't believe (Don Diablo Remix)
OK so this one may not be all that current but, um whatever. Rox was an artist I backed for widespread fame in 2010 and, while that may not have happened for whatever reason, I still believe she's an incredibly talented artist and will hopefully burst into the public eye soon enough. Just as gifted in their own right are Don Diablo who have completely re-invented this track with a shit-ton of wobble and a D'n'B beat to get bodies moving.
Blatta & Inesha - Pancadao Supersonico (feat. Edu K)
In English, Baxter. I don't understand a word of what's going on, and don't know if I want to given how fierce this beat is! Blatta & Inesha have taken the scare-listeners-into-liking-it approach, and it's certainly worked for me. Drop this at 3am and watch dancefloor chaos unfurl.
Adele - Rolling in the Deep (Dan Clare Club Remix)
Although I never really got into Adele before Rolling In The Deep, this song has well and truely made me see the error of my ways. It's awesome, soulful, and powerful stuff. Dan Clare has done a really good job with the track too, keeping the verse thumping along before letting rip, chopping up the chorus. Great club vibe.
