With Alex Preda’s ‘Chasing Light / DNA Matching’ EP getting released on Manual Music this week, we take a look at his favourite tracks of the moment in the latest edition of What’s In Your Box?

Alex Preda

1. Alex Preda – Multiverse (Original Mix) [MNL]

“This tune was released about a year ago and was played by Paul Hazendonk and Dimitri from Amsterdam quite a few times. By keeping my humbleness, I have to agree that it works every time on the dance floor.“

2. Pachanga Boys – Time (Original Mix) [Hippie Dance]

“This track has a special place in my heart and playlist. I like to drop it every now and then when I feel it could work. I love the pads and the harmonies, complemented by the vocals.”

3. Steve Parry – Flippant (Original Mix) [Bedrock]

“I like to call this one an <<acid gem>>. I like how it builds up with the juicy acid sounds and keeps on going and going. Dance floor success guaranteed.”

4. Thodoris Triantafillou, Cj Jeff feat. Thomas Gandey – Body Clock (Original Mix) [Bedrock]

“Try to listen to your heart beat when you are in a club and you’re enjoying it. For me this is a pleasant experience, feeling my mind and body connected to the music. That’s how this track makes me feel. Those protrusive bass stabs are adding an irresistible action to dance to the track.”

5. Alex Preda – Chasing Light (Original Mix) [Manual Music]

“My newest release on Manual Music played by Paul Hazendonk at Bergwacht party in Cologne earlier this year for the first time. The reaction was priceless, people loved it! I’m filled with excitement every time I see the video recording from the party. Their reaction is a reminder to me why I am making music. So this is a keeper in my box. My good friend Urbanizr made a really cool official video for it. Have a look!”

6. Guy Mantzur & Sahar Z – Our Foggy Trips (Robert Babicz Remix) [Lost & Found]

“There is something about Lost & Found label: the music they release has a harmonic coherence like no other. Most of these harmonies remind me of the good times of my childhood. Babicz’ reinterpretation of this song gives a complementary flavor to the original harmony. Respect to all artists involved in the process.”

7. Andre Bratten – Trommer Og Bass (Original Mix) [Correspondant]

“Bizarre, bass and energetic. It works every time I play it!”

8. Eversines – Farewell (Original Mix) [MNL]

“Instant love with this song. The break is so soothing, peaceful then followed by a massive bass line, burst of energy. Brilliant!

9. Lanny May – Chocolate Rabbit (PHM Remix)

“I’m always captured by solid melodic arrangements in electronic music. This is one of those gems that I always want to play. Given its melancholic nature I thought won’t work on the dance floor, but it did work really well. Great remix!”

10. D-Nox & Victor Ruiz – Arise (Original Mix) [Sudbeat]

“You can feel the track slowly building up with the bass filter envelope slowly opening up towards the main break, which I think is in perfect balancing with what’s going to follow: that big chunky drop. A track with a few instruments yet so powerful. This one will stay a long while in my collection.”
