The last track of the night?

It’s impossible for us not to have a Kompakt track or reference when we talk about music. For us it has been the most consistent and interesting label over the years, from the full-on techno of Gui Boratto and Maxime Dangles to the more melodic and ambient works by Magazine and Thomas Fehlmann. Closer Musik fall into that weird micro/click-house category where the melody rules. One of the first times we heard this track was as the sun was rising over Barcelona at Sonar. Even now whenever we play or hear this track it always reminds us of that goose-bump moment.

The best chill-out record?

Cantoma – Cantoma. A full album as opposed to a single track but this is one of those rare electronic albums that make sense from the beginning to the very end. Phil Mison was a resident years ago at the Iberian sunset mecca Cafe Del Mar and this album really translates that whole sunset vibe – but in an honest non-pompous manner.

The best record for a family party?

Bee Gees – ‘You Stepped Into My Life’. It’s the Bee Gees but not one of their run-of-the-mill Saturday Night Fever tracks. This is from before they blew up with the film and it has a more soul/boogie feel to it. People might not recognise it as the Bee Gees or know the track at all, but it totally works.

The soundtrack to a lazy Sunday afternoon?

Dub vibes but done with a nod to European production values. An album that just drifts over you in a totally unobtrusive manner. It’s a crying shame that Kruder & Dorfmeister don’t produce music together any more. A great album for BBQ vibes.

The future classic?

James Welsh – Take It EP (forthcoming on Join Our Club). OK, shameless plug for music coming out on our own Join Our Club label but frankly the music James Welsh is making really excites us. We hooked up with him via a recommendation from a Twitter friend (who says technology is a bad thing?), and we are really excited to be putting out a super-strong EP from him later this year. Both original tracks have a real intricacy to them but with a big splash of bassline and acid that totally rocks a dancefloor.
