PHARRELL’S ACID DROP
Pharrell vs Les Visiteurs
This is a cheeky bootleg currently ripping through the clubs using Pharrell’s vocals from his R&B smash Can I Have It Like That? There’s a chunky acid synth line bubbling underneath which takes the track well out to left field. Sounds fantastic on a huge sound system.
MASTER & SERVANT
This track is 22 years old but it’s still cutting edge. I’m a huge Depeche fan, and it’s great to see these guys are still producing and playing massive festivals. Their music is so timeless. Master & Servant was definitely one of the standout tunes of the 80s.
The man behind Call On Me redeems himself under his Cirez D alias with excellent production, a sexed-up bass line and chunky synths. This track never fails to get a reaction. Proper electro!
KOMM (Gregor Tresher Remix)
Sven V? vs Anthony Rother
With its awesome dirty bass line and sexy spoken vocal in German, this track caused so much dancefloor damage when Tiefschwarz dropped it at Field Day on New Year’s Day that people couldn’t help but get up and dance despite the 46-degree heat.
MISERABLE GIRL (Nite Version)
These guys are huge at the moment under both their Soulwax production moniker and as 2manydjs, creating mayhem across Australia in the Boiler Room on the recent Big Day Out tour. Miserable Girl has probably the biggest build-up of any electro track, which means that, by the time the track finally unleashes, everyone is a sweaty mess.
