Terry Farley (Boy’s Own) - House tracks

 

Boy's Own boy - Terry Farley

The guvnor in chief at Boy’s Own Terry Farley lays down his favourite 5 slabs of House from the last year …

5) Bontan – The First Time

The breakdown tune in the acid house world. One of those Hot Creations tracks that cross over from the big mainstream techno parties into just about every sub-genre DJ’s playlist. Quite magical.

4) Joe Goddard – Home

The Hot Chipper and one of The Two Bears with a great song that resonates for everyone on the dance floor, and contains a clever sample from Brainstorm (oh, and the Morgan Geist remix was innovation to the max).

3) Karizma  and Marcel Vogel – Work It Out

Sample a old gospel choir and fire up some amazingly funky jacking beats – it’s that simple. But as with all truly great sample tracks, it’s the the sum of it’s perfect parts.

 

2) Mama – Unmask Me (Ashley Beedle Vocal Mix)

Great vocal track on Hannah Holland’s Batty Bass label given a superb remix from Ashley Beadle (who’s been back on fire this year). Deep chords fit Mama’s soulful voice perfectly.

1) Waajeed – Shango

Son of Detroit who’s been a heads’ fave for a while now and a name to drop at the counter. With its deep brass stabs leading the way, its that track you kept on hearing and danced so much you forgot to Shazam the damn thing.
