Siavash Amini – Semblance [Room40]
Currently my favourite pick to open a set if I’m playing first and have a long warm-up slot ahead.
Sohrab – Tweaker [Marginal Returns]
I’ve always thought that Sohrab’s brain works at double speed compared to the rest of the planet, and this extremely good debut EP on Marginal Returns proves that.
Fabrizio Maurizi & Matteo Manzini – Cable [Memoria]
I still remember how spontaneously this track happened in the studio with Fabrizio, both the idea and the arrangement: it turned out exactly as we wanted, and there was almost no need to talk to each other while working.
Varhat – Distract [YYK no label]
My classic go-to track when I’m in trouble with the dancefloor, it always works. I missed it when it originally came out on record, but the 2019 digital release has meant I’ve had a chance to discover it.
Luca Piermattei – Goosebumps [Polarity]
I have no specific memories connected to this track, but for some reason its melody takes me back to all of my best dancefloor moments in one go. I don’t know how to put this feeling into words.
M GUN – Snap In [Futurepast]
It’s an unusual track that doesn’t sound unusual at all, yet again I don’t know how to put it in words. I’ve liked every Futurepast release so far, big thanks to label boss Davy.
F.U.S.E. – Mantrax [Plus8]
My 20s in full power: big dancefloors and huge pads. Many thanks to Richie Hawtin for bringing it back with this 2019 reissue.
