Noraj Cue

1. Afrilounge, Patrick Chardronnet – Morning Poem (feat. Phetote the Poet) (Original Mix) [Audiomatique Recordings]

“Playing this one for a very long time now. and will never leave my box ever again. So much funk inside and a great focus shifter to any place you’d like to go from there.”

2. Yvel & Tristan – Carolina (Original Mix) [Hi!Fly Music]

“A brilliant track full of rocking old school soul massiveness with a large built up, drivin’ on funky basslines, guitar licks & sparkling metal snares!”

3. Dave Seaman, One Million Toys – Everything Comes In Threes (D-Nox & Beckers Remix) [Tulipa Records]

“Really nice tension builder with such killer solidness in its lower parts in a wonderful clean mix without the need to go all over the top on points where it could be, but keep it’s cool instead, sunglassed!”

4.  Peter Horrevorts – Play One (Original Mix) [Be Real]

“I could drop here any track by ‘Peter’ and blind bet it’s one hell of a massive one. This guy is certainly one the biggest high class sound makers out there! All low deep sub grooves, warmth in each layer, stories & icey clean mix included!”

5. Vincenzo feat Minako – Just Like Heaven (Dave DK Remix) [Anjunadeep]

“This track with all deformed vocals, drowned in all its deep melancholic chord glory just touches the right strings.”

6. Alexkid – The Dope (Original Mix) [Ovum]

“This is just so funky! I have trouble not playing it 🙂 Raw & tasty little funky grooved bassdriver, yeah!”

7. Butch & Mar-T – Chupa Chups (Original Mix) [Wow! Recordings]

“I’m a sucker for rhythmic percussions and asshakin’ cabasas on thick drivin’ 2 count kicked bassgrooves in busy marketplaces, this is all about that!”

8. Sidney Charles – Cave Rave (Original Mix) [AVOTRE]

“This huffs, puffs groove from its lowest lows to the gated oldschool sound, acid picks, the push & pull synth action in the midsection, to the rattling raw 909 snares! Played at the right time it really does some irreversible heavy headnodding/body move damage!”

9. Steve Slight & Rob Hes – Focusing (Gabriel Ananda Remix) [Selador]

“This track says to me: Forget all your shit and sorrow, look forward and make that sun breakthrough by sharing thousands of smiles!”

10. Noraj Cue – Krankenhouse (Original Mix) [Manual Music]

“I would be a liar if i wouldn’t say I’d play one of my own from time to time :-)”
