DJ Greg Boladian, soon to be heard playing at next week’s Sleaze, gives us his top five dance tracks of the moment. You can also catch him playing at Stonewall on Fridays and Arq on Sundays.
You know a record is going to be huge when people go bonkers the first time you play it out. Such was the case with this gem. Fat bass line, fat beats, fat guitar hook, fat vocals -¦ everything fat! Oh, and the woman on vocals sounds like Mel C -“ and why shouldn’t she?
Danny Howells and Dick Trevor
With this follow-up to the worldwide club smash Dusk Till Dawn, Danny and Dick have delivered a wonderful slice of progressive house. Once again we have Erire on vocals, a dollop of tech, some spectral atmospheres and one of the sexiest bass lines I’ve ever heard. Perfect in every way.
PUSH THE BUTTON
The sauciest saucepots in saucedom saucily return with a sauce that is headed for big business. This particular mix fires up the dancefloor with its hefty kick, chunky bass line, shimmering synth and catchy-as-all-hell lyrics. Straight to the top of the class!
MESMERIZED (Freemasons Mix)
Shit, baby. You got me mesmerised. Due for local release any day now, this track is already massive and destined to be a classic, with R&B princess Faith Evans getting housed up by remixers of the moment, the Freemasons. Love it or love it -“ the choice is yours.
DO YOUR THING 2005 (Gadjo Mix)
Holy mother of remixes! Gadjo have turned out a stunning new take on this classic Jaxx track. Now stripped of the feel-good piano of the original, they have created an edgier, more driven, synth-laden, guitar-tinged, funky ass anthem that would make your grandma throw aside her Zimmer frame, toss you off the podium and jump jack her body.
