The cream of the crop and pure dance-pop heaven. Handbag House classics and uplifting floor-filling remixes.
Finally, someone was good enough to produce a remix of Ghost by Ellie Goulding. Dave Aude’s drum ‘n’ bass inspired mix brings together the soul of energising electronica with current club sounds. Ellie’s powerful vocals are enough to make you want to put this one on repeat all day! I loved mixing with this one and I’ve been dying to feature it on this podcast.
The Fierce Collective is a step forward from Hed Kandi. Any fans of the naughties-era Funky House will remember Hed Kandi well. DJ Mark Doyle left the label and moved on to set up his own dance enterprise, and many of the Fierce repertoire has been featured on this podcast. What’s great about it is that Doyle uses a plethora of existing, tried and tested engineers to create awesome tracks, as well as experienced circuit session singers. Pride fans will recognise the vocalist featured on Heaven, Soraya Vivian. Her vocals have helped this track become a huge anthem.
Avicii’s The Days is also featured. I am a huge fan of Avicii and have been ever since I heard Leona Lewis‘s Collide. Avicii’s country-esque riffs and acoustic melodies blended with high-octane electro are delightful, even if they’re hard to mix.
Union J‘s You Got It All is typically ‘boy band’ material, which of course is not a bad thing. The Alias mix throws a curve ball in making it instantly danceable.
These tracks are all superb, and I really hope you enjoy the entire set as much as I have.
