Archie Hamilton – Waisted (Silverlining Remix) [MTD001]

This track was actually the first track that I played when we came out of lockdown in the Netherlands. It was a beach party at Colorado Charlie and when the bass line came in there was such a good crowd response. Since that moment it never left my bag. Big remix by Silverlining!

Listen to “Waisted” (Silverlining Remix) here.

Montei – Serie 1 [OGE015]

This one has a special vibe: acid groove, mega break. Ever since I played it in Shelter during ADE I was amazed by how big this track actually sounded. It was the track of the night for me.

Denia – Ibiza (El Mix Sunset)

Reminds me of warm summer days… We lost two Ibiza seasons and I am really hoping we can get back to the island in 2022 to have a wonderful season together.

James Andrew – Dream Cycle [TSOL001]

Great underground vibe by James Andrew, I am always a sucker for deep chords and he nailed it on this track. Played it a lot and will continue to do so in my deeper sets.

Stussko – Brothers & Sisters [Bandcamp]

Djoko and myself made this fun track just before the summer and it came by surprise. It was one of the most requested tracks of the summer. Having fun in the studio together and this was the result!

Listen to “Brothers & Sisters” here.

Mant – Raindance [WHTNXT]

My opening track at Fabrik in Madrid a few weeks ago. I didn’t expect that the track would give so much energy, but the simplicity literally blew me away! Such a great vibe.

Martha Wash – Carry On (Tee’s Dub)

I closed with this track at Pacha in Barcelona a few weeks back, the lights went on and the people came closer to each other. Was a truly magical moment. And, I was actually playing a different version that has been edited by Michel de Hey and he was so kind to give me that special version.

Duowe – Hallucinogenics [TESS012]

Super old school sounding track by Duowe. Playing this a lot in my sets and it goes down very well every time! I might play this one at Desert Air, I’ll bring it with me for sure.

Sweely – Bring It On

As the title says, bring it on…! This one makes me smile. Super vibe!

Chris Stussy & S.A.M. – Breather [UTS04]

The A-side of the project I did together with S.A.M. – was such a pleasure working with him on all eight tracks, but this is the track I’ve played the most and gets the best reaction. 90’s vibes and it has a recognisable melody for everyone to understand on the dance floor. Will definitely bring this one with me to Palm Springs!
