The track I’ll be opening my next DJ set with
Zombie Nation – Attic Sundays
I love to start with a song that makes everyone feel comfortable. Zombie Nation still manages to find some funk in a funkless sea of Techno.
The track that currently gets the most rewinds
Proxy – Junk
He is the Russian Liam Howlett: a true genius who knows how to make proper 21st-century rave music.
The track I wish I’d signed to my label
Scissor Sisters – Laura
I suppose had I tricked them into it and offered up cash at the right moment, I might have been able to sign Scissor Sisters. But I would never deliberately ruin a friend’s career/life.
The ideal festival track
MGMT – Kids (Soulwax Remix)
While it might not have the same edge as a few years ago, in its prime this was an absolute festival destroyer/uniter.
The track that should have been a crossover hit
Tiga – You Gonna Want Me
I have to go with my own track, featuring Jake Shears, from a few years back. It had all the elements, I thought. But alas, the marketplace spoke, and in the end that’s the beauty of Electroclash: only a hit is a hit.
The track that’s been unfairly slept on this year
Duke Dumont – The Giver
This really has all the ingredients to be a big radio tune. We will see what happens.
The track I’d play at sunset in Ibiza
Mission Control – Outta Limits
Max Berlin’s Elle Et Moi is a good one too. Invisible Conga People’s Cable Dazed. My own remix of Alter Ego’s Gary. I have massive playlists for that Ibiza sunset show that never quite happens.
