LOVE SENSATION 2006 (Freemasons Mix)
If you do a cover of an old song, make sure it’s better than the original. Freemasons have done it once again and delivered an instant classic. How many times has this been sampled? Who cares? This is a fantastic disco track with full vocals from Loleatta. If you loved Black Box 17 years ago, you will love this Freemasons mix even more because they’re riiiiiight on time.
WE GOT IT
All the way from Argentina, Ronan Portela brings us a solid west coast US, deep house track supported by Miguel Migs and Jay-J, with a balance of funky guitars, bumping bass and some disco vocals dropped in the right places. Play this on a bassy sound system and the whole club will turn into a true house heaven.
SUPER TOP TRUMPS (Mix A)
A trumpet throughout works fantastic with this funky bass line, done in a true fat house way. No vocals but who needs a singing diva? The magic instrument does all the work. This comes in three mixes with the same trumpet riff, but each still manages to be different.
JAZZ SAMBA (Ian Carey Mix)
Jazz Samba brings summer back into our clubs. The original mix has a Latino feel and Ian Carey has added a chunky bass line and catchy piano. Mix it with vocals in French and you get an Ibiza style hymn. This is becoming a European summer anthem -“ a must-have!
DREAMS (DJ Simo & Masterkeys Dub)
Deep Dish are back with another fantastic song. There are seven mixes to choose from, perfect for every dancefloor. My favourite is the DJ Simo & Masterkeys Dub mix with fewer vocals, which makes the smooth melody even stronger and more addictive. Two massive build-ups make everyone jump.
