Techno goodness to get your engine revving.
This set starts out down and dirty and revs up to banging techno, before spinning down the progressive wormhole.
The hard edges of Matt Mus, Darmec and Sian are softened by gorgeous Kostas Maskalides vocals.
Some very big names in techno here - Beyer, Capriati, Capuano, Lumem, Sian, Darmec, Kardinal & Lowkey, Runhag, Flug. Hope you like it.

Getting set for a massive Sydney Mardi Gras with some spanking hot techno and progressive to keep your celebration jumping.
This mix kicks off a little tech housey with some cool vocals from Shawnecy before getting deep and dirty with Kardinal, Moudaber and Sanguiliano. We shift up a gear with Nodin & Inphasia, before dropping into the vocal goodness of Michel Cleis & Klement.
Tale of Us and Radio Slave bring us up to the old skool mayhem of Slam. It's pumping from there but Pan Pot brings back the sweet vocals with a spanking remix from Joseph Capriati. There's a little progressive sweetness from Drumcomplex and Paganini to round things off. Something for everyone in this mix.
You can catch me playing these sexy beats at:

Extra Dirty at the Oxford Art Factory on Sun 6 Mar

I'm probably better known for playing deeper stuff and techno right now and this has always been a passion for me. However, I am also a DJ who has played house from the beginning including house residencies at clubs like ARQ. The music of Frankie Knuckles was a big part of my life in the 1990s and it has remained a strong influence on my DJing, remixing and production.
The delicate interplay of light and dark, the lush piano, the extravagant orchestral flourishes, the fat beats and bass lines, the crisp hats and percussion and of course the pretty synths and emotive vocals, are the key elements of house laid down by Frankie and his peers over the last 30 years. Frankie in many ways set the standard for high quality dance music production.
Even the deepest, darkest and hardest techno I play has a house pedigree, whether it's bass lines, percussion, synths, vocal samples, or that classic bouncy groove. The development of the two genres has shared a common path; in my mind they are branches of the same tree. One way or another house always features in my techno sets.
I was lucky enough to dance to an amazing set by Frankie at Sublime when the Fuzzy boys brought him out in the late 1990s. He actually worked for my event production company when we invited him in 2002 to Sydney to play at the last of six Harbour Parties we produced from 1997-2002.
It was a great thrill to meet the very tall and softly spoken Frankie with his massive warm smile and humble manner in the DJ booth on the harbour's edge that summer's afternoon. This was the smile of a man who took great pleasure from what he did and saw every day in music as a privilege.
I'm really looking forward to playing the warm up set at I Remember House at the Ivy on 28 June. I will be doing my best to do justice to some of these great Frankie tunes and deliver a classic house set that will not only warm the cockles of your heart but also get you on the dance floor.
Frankie Knuckles has left his mark on me as a person, as a DJ and as a producer and I am grateful for what he has done for the world of music and entertainment.
Respect and love.
