DJ Murray Hood gives us his top five dance tracks at the moment. He’s a resident DJ at Stonewall and Flinders, and sometimes guests at Arq, Deckbar, Manacle and Rogues. Murray is heading to Melbourne next month to perform at dance party Raw Hide and nightclub The Market.
WE CAN DO IT (Choice Mix)
This record has been in my box for a couple of months now -“ it’s a huge crowd-pleaser. The vocals are bitchy and full of attitude, and the bass line is ? funked and totally addictive. Watch people jump up and down to this baby.
NASTY KIND OF LOVE
Paul Goodyear Project feat. Merania
Sydney DJ Paul Goodyear along with James Atherton worked on this super sexy Rauhofer-style track with the powerful vocals of Merania. Nasty Kind Of Love will have you shaking your hips before you even realise it. Pack your shit up, and get the fuck out!
INCREDIBLE (Nocturnal Mix)
This track goes to show that Shapeshifters can do no wrong. Incredible has a very funky disco feel and it’s very catchy. You’d think it would be hard to follow up the huge success of Lola’s Theme, and then Back To Basics, but they’ve done it again with this well produced release.
SAX WITH YOU
It’s not often you can play a non-vocal track in a gay venue and have people go absolutely mental. Sax With You is definitely an exception, a tribal house monster beat with a strong and refreshing saxophone piece.
TIMELESS (Deepwide Mix)
Melodic trance at its best. Will Holland has lived up to his name producing this beast of a track. The vocals are soothing and the synths are powerful. You just can’t help but throw your hands in the air.
