    Whatve you got? All genres....throw in represses or whatever else rocked your boat in 2018, even if old.

    Will come back and post some properly, but for now
    Aretha Franklin - Rock-A-Lott
    Stacy Kidd House 4 Life Remix of Rock a Lott
    Wicked Aretha Franklin remix....RIP Aretha.......
    Not up online in full anywhere, but it gets better as it goes (and could do with pitching up a couple of bpm too)

    Also any particular label picks?

    The best tune of the year on the dancefloor, at home, in the car, on the radio at work, or anywhere else is obviously Peggy Gou's It Makes You Forget (Itgehane)

    One label that's had a really good year is Running Back from Lorsch in Germany. They've been mining the sounds of mid/late 80s and early 90s euro dancefloors.

    They put out Odeon's Galaxies, which scrapped in at 30th on the Urban AOTY poll. They put out an album by the always worth checking Lauer. They released an amazing mix album that sought to capture the sound of Hamburg's Front Club in the late 80s/early 90s: Running Back Mastermix: Front By Klaus Stockhausen & Boris Dlugosch.

    But this is the single tracks thread and they had an equally good run of singles this year. Their big hit was the cheese-tastic Neutron Dance by Krystal Klear ("a love letter to dance music written with pink ink"), although I preferred piano house monster Moonshake Miner over on the b-side. They put out the early 90s sounding Perth (Dusky Remix) by KiNK and some great breakbeat house by Luca Lozano.

    I hope they keep up their great run next year :)

    The sound of an Ecstasy fuelled basement in 1993. Love it.

    Nice!! Pads and flute parts reminds me of OOBE (Out-of-body experience) that opening ambient track on that classic UFOrb album (+ with added breakbeats and arps)
     
  11. Johnny Vodka

    Johnny Vodka The Abominable Scotsman

    For those who can't get enough, there's been a great cover by The Orielles and also a fine remix of that cover...

    How about some Daniel Avery? I really enjoyed his Song for Alpha album this year.

    Someone ive been looking to this year a fair bit is Shadow Child. He has a radio show on Rinse, plays a range of house styles but seems to be coming from a Class of 1992 rave spot (so can relate), has a good label caled Food, and makes some really solid productions. I dont like everything he does or plays or that the label puts out (way too Tech House for me often), but there are definitely lots of things that Im feeling.

    Here's some productions of his from this year that smashed it
    DJ Haus - Ready 2 Jack (Shadow Child Remix) - banging jack tune


    Shadow Child, SL2 - DJs Take Control (Shadow Child Extended Remix)
    Great update on a rave classic


    Mark Archer (Mr Altern8) & Shadow Child - Eye Feel
    Having it breakbeat techno


    The older catalouge has many nuggets too....Ooh Tune, remix of HArdrive, String THeory, Piano Weapon, loads of them. Good remixer for sure.

    Also on the Food label these two tunes from 2018 are killers
    twisted hypno house thing


    And best till last the mighty Mad Villains - top 10 tune of the year for me


    All very strong....if you like any of that the radio show is well worth a check out.

    5 Fav Upfront House Tunes

    Bimas - Be Yourself
    The Circus label this is off is usually too ibizan for my tastes, but this has got something old skool US about it and a little bit of gay-house-scene swag to it. I like house tunes with a Be Yourself message... Really clever production. Belgian!



    Ossie - My Rail
    Another non-conformist message, this one out of London...proper deep but stepping filtered house. I get a kind of early 90s Cajmere vibe off this.


    Kry Wolf - Information
    Straight ahead one chord stab banger out of Bristol. In fact I think Kry WOlf run that Food label with Shadow Child.



    PEZNT - Kume
    These guys are from Croatia but it sounds stompy NY to me. Great production, powerful on a set. Strictly Rhythm stamp of approval.



    Adesse Versions - Pulp Fusion
    Adesse is from Scotland I think? Does great edits and this track alwasy gets me going - disco funk filtered bomb. Fun tune

    I think the track I played the most off that was the Quest update. Blade runner does a great job on refixing tunes, probably the best on the circuit these days. Loads of good ones under his belt. Very tidy
