Hello again,

I’ve just been looking about the place for new dance/edm/my-sort-of-thing and came up with this rather juicy playlist from the Guardian “Harangue the DJ” articles, and here is my selector/selection. You’ll see what I like, and go look at the Guardian’s page, what I don’t!

Gecko | Just Close Your Eyes (Rework 2002)

Cleared the dancefloor, apparently, but I love it. Apart from the irritating vocals. Thoughts?
Get from : no idea!

Die Verboten | Dafalgänger

Nice weird one from last year – “krautrock” (really, isn’t that, er, a bit not nice?) project by the Soulwax brothers and Riton calling themselves Die Verboten.
Vinyl from Amazon.

Konstantin Sibold | Mutter

Very lovely sequency/bongy thing, which is my thang, and no mistake mister.
Get from : Amazon

DJ Hyperactive | Wide Open (Len Faki edit)

Another simply one, basic, to the point, groove!
Get the album “Raveline Mix Session” By Marc Romboy from : Amazon

Room 506 (aka Ancient Methods) | Drop Out

Liking the grungy guitar sounds and Nico samples – heard these before, I think …
Get from : Amazon unavailable right now, but there’s the link anyway.

Aufgang B | Demo 1 (Tolouse Low Trax Remix)

I like this beat, a bit Amen Brother, a bit Orb, nice wonky piano – where have I heard that piano sound before?
Get from : Discus Throwers Shop, somewhere on that site we’re assured…

Batu | Domino Theory

Sounds quite old-fashioned, synth-wise, but some niceness in all that wobbliness…
Get from : Amazon

Red Axes | Shem Volume II

Interesting beat build-up, down, up, some samples and ting…
Get from : Amazon

So, what do you thing of today’s selector? Any good?


PS : ideally listen with one of these : Headphones | Bass units 🙂

Hey it was a nice post, I lliked the songs you recommend for dance, almost all of them are pretty interesting and I hope you soon write a post on songs that you could play while at work so that they could help you to focus much better!

Keep writing

    Hello Shrey,

    Thank you very much indeed! I will post some work-orientated stuff soon, I think, except that it may distract you too much, hopefully, ha!

    Interestingly, I think I read somewhere that using noise cancellation headphones can help you concentrate more on the task in hand, as well as the music – something to consider, perhaps.

    Thank you for the nice comment!

Nice website!. I am adding this to one of my favorites. Great collection to get you through the day . I am not a huge fan of dance music but I adore music without much vocals because it helps me concentrate at work. You have amazing taste in music. Its so weird. I love it.I especially love the Dee Wee 003 and Room 506. Hoping to see more from you soon.Where do you find these records?

    Hello Patrice,

    Well, thank you oh so much! I’m really glad I my have a convert to my bonkers style, I’ll endeavour to keep it going, for you!

    There’s so much music around on the net, I tend to keep en eye on Kompakt records, and the Guardian’s DJ pages, plus my own Top Secret ways of finding this stuff (actually, endless hours listening mostly to stuff I don’t like, until I find something I do – hard work, really!). Boomkat and Juno are another source, plus keeping an ear out …

    Thank you for your comments!

Dance music is more and more popular every year, isn’t it? 🙂 I’m not a huge fan of dance music myself, but I do know some of the songs from here.That song with Room 506 from Drop Out sounded so familiar to me, so I’m sure I heard it before. What do you think about the “actual” dance music? Sometimes I thought I couldn’t call it music, but it is music.

    Hi Ashley,

    Seems to be, yes! Lots of pop artists insist on a ‘club version’ of their hits to be made in order to get more plays all round the world.

    I deffo think it’s music, just like Mozart to me – it can significantly alter your mood, and be just as uplifting, imho 🙂

    Thanks for the comment!
