DJ David DC reveals his top five favourite tracks at the moment. He is resident DJ and co-creator of the new Sunday arvo event, Arveaux Departure Lounge, at the Colombian. He also guest DJs at Slide and Fringe.
COME BACK (Original Club Mix)
No messin’-around funky club house with a feelgood melody and fuzzy vocal overlays, it’s a little bit disco, a little bit 80s synth-pop -“ a lot handbag -“ guaranteed to get you swinging it. Main room, main time, which is just how I like it, this is definitely my fave track of the moment.
WORD UP (Original Mix)
This is what it’s all about, synths, electric guitars, 80s-style pop vocals and a funky club house bass line. Nice layers, breakdowns and build-ups will keep you hooked. Shake it, thrash it! A real electric dream.
LICKY (Kris Menace Remix)
Larry Tee feat. Princess Superstar
One of my favourite artists of the moment, Princess Superstar does it again. Camp and cheeky lyrics mashed with sexy phat beats, it’s one for the boys and the girls, lots of fun and oh so damn funky!
DR DOO YOO (Fred Everything’s Dr Thing Remix)
Sean Dimitrie feat. Felicia Lee
Phat, phat, phat! About as funky as you’re gonna get. Nice rap-style vocals and some seriously phat beats, naturally. This isn’t just a toe-tapper, it’s a whole dang body-bumper. Old skool is new again -“ get down and get funk-ae.
LOVE IS WAR (Goodwill & Mr T Rework)
This has been in my box for a while now. It’s still a fave and still a crowd pleaser with quality production, quality vocals, quality funky-ass bass line, the signature track for where dance music is at right now and for just how good our homegrown dance talent is.
