1. Freak Emotion (Sonny Fodera remix) - Mark & Stevens

I'm sure Rick James' Super Freak is a major influence on this track. A very funky modern bass line drives it along and the vocal is uncanny.

2. Drama Mamma - Nate Laurence

A nice mash-up of a hip hop vocal with a female disco vocal on top and a classic house bass line makes this an essential warm-up track on cold nights.

3. Disco Biscuit - Sonny Fodera

The spoken-word lyrics may be alarming at first, but all is forgiven when the disco house hook kicks in.

4. Casablanca - Strict Border

One of my top tracks of the moment, perfectly capturing what quality funky underground house should sound like. It's a great track to segue into the tougher later part of a set.

5. Whippersnap (Alex and Flip remix) - Russell and Maxi Valvona

A building, driving track that alternates between dirty electro and ethereal trance. It gets hands in the air at peak time from new and seasoned clubbers alike.
