DJ Renae Stanton is just about everywhere at the moment, with regular gigs at Smooch, the Civic, Lord Roberts, Colombian, @Newtown and the Bank, plus she’s gearing up for the next Candy Lips party on 26 June. She gives us her top five dance tracks at the moment.
FEEL THE RHYTHM
Julius Papp feat. D’Layna
This track is one that I just can’t stop playing. Fantastic percussion with a variety of drumming and bongos combined with an original pre-commercial disco flavour and simple catchy vocals.
CAN YOU FEEL IT
Funky, funky, funky house track which kind of makes you want to shake your booty. With a cool rhythm and bass line this is a must for making the floor bounce.
LITHIUM (Dirty Funker Remix)
Awesome. Teases and teases you with some chunky dirty beats and small tastes of that guitar riff before breaking out and going crazy. If you’re a Nirvana fan like me you cannot go past this.
THAT’S MORE LIKE IT
This is a bumpin’ house track. One of those tunes with a great beat that gets you with the repetition and builds and builds only to hit you with those beats again. I reckon this one will be around for a while.
ALIVE (Armand Van Helden Mix)
This rocks. It fits into the category where on first listen it’s okay, but by the time you’ve heard it three times you’re addicted. With a phat bass line that punches in, this is a track that works in the bars but also on a rocking dance floor. If you like Colorsound’s Fly With Me, then you’ll like this too.
