1) Djuma Soundsystem – Les Djinns (Trentemoller Remix)
Great vibe on this Trentemoller rework of Les Djinns, i don’t think i’ve ever heard the original! 🙂
2) The Juan Maclean – Give Me Every Little Thing (Cajmere Remix)
The man can do no wrong wether it’s a Green Velvet production or a Cajmere rework, check the funk!
3) Scott Grooves – Mothership Reconnection (Daft Punk Mix)
One of the rare Daft Punk rnxs ad what a rmx! That electro intro is just one of my favourite tracks intro ever!

Oh man what a trip this rmx is from the italian Father Of Sound, great synth melodies through the track and the final surprise of them soulful deep vocals. Amazing with capital A.

6) Kerri Chandler – Pong (Ben Klock’s Bones & Strings Rework)
Nice and simple, on of the best from mr Klock.

What a groove on this, not many manage to rick such a known sample without making it sound cheesy… this is the case!
8) Luke Solomon – Ghouls (Claude VonStroke’s Beats From The Grave Mix)
One of the best from mr Vonstroke, that bassline is something else!
