• 2015: The tracks 06 December 2015 | View comments

  • In a year dominated by bouncy tech house, here are the top ten tunes that held their own with distinctive ingredients, devastating dancefloors and evoking crowds to cry out for more.

     

    Damian Lazarus & The Ancient Moons – Vermillion (&ME Remix)

    Crosstown Rebels

    Storming project from Damian got the &Me seeing to. It was love at first drop. 

     

    Howling – ‘Signs’ (Rødhåd Remix)

    Monkeytown Records

    Careful listening is rewarded with a minuscule changeup to catastrophic effect. 

     

    Frankey & Sandrino – Acamar

    Innervisions

    Home listening doesn't always do it justice, but when those keys hit in a mix... 

     

    Dubspeeka – Outland 1

    Skeleton

    Impeccable arrangement, moody techno still encompassing groove. 

     

    Jamie XX – Gosh (Tale Of Us Remix)

    unreleased 

    First hearing this dancefloor refit in DC10 dropped my jaw to the ground. Ta Âme. 

     

    DJ Koze – XTC

    Pampa

    Intriguing spoken passage with cosmic pads and tinkers following. Instant classic. 

     

    Adesse Versions – Pride

    Numbers

    All about those powerful chords matched with a whopping vocal. Fully-fledged tune. 

     

    Monkey Safari – Walls (Guy Gerber’s Office Sex Remix)

    Hommage

    Israeli weaves fluttering beats into the vocal, at almost 10 minutes long it fails to tire.

     

    Bicep – Just

    aus music

    When this dropped we all bathed in a breath of fresh air with the faint whiff of breaks.

     

    Sven Väth – Ritual Of Life (Adam Port 108 Mix)

    Cocoon Recordings

    Remix of 1993 track encapsulates Cocoon and is worth every inch of the clear vinyl it’s pressed on.

    Runner-ups because indecisive 

    2015 wouldn’t be the same without:

    Michel Cleis & Klement Bonelli – Marvinello 

    Aphrohead – Let’s Prance (Radio Slave & Thomas Gandey Last Communication Remix) 

    Kollektiv Turmstrasse – Sorry I’m Late

    Taken from issue 2 of Fresh Vibes
