With temperatures hitting the high numbers this weekend, he’s created a summer playlist for you!

1. Prok & Fitch – The Nodding Dog

This was the debut EP on Kaluki from Prok & Fitch. It’s been our highest charting and best-selling record on Kaluki and always does this business on the dancefloor, a big starter for us.

2. Mason Maynard – Love Game

This landed in my lap just before Parklife 2017. I heard it and thought it was pretty cool. I actually ended up playing it as my last record on the Kaluki Stage in front of around 20,000 people and it just lit the place up – I had to sign it and it’s been a huge record ever since for me.

3. Francisco Allendes – Tirana (Matt Tolfrey Remix)

This was one of my favourite remixes from last summer, it was great to tune into Jamie Jones live at Kappa Festival and see him drop it to 30,000 people live on Be-At TV to a huge audience.

4. De La Swing – Give me time (wAFF remix)

I was actually on tour in South America with wAFF when he did this remix and started testing it out on the gigs we did together. Straight away I knew it was a bit special, and probably my favourite wAFF production ever!

5. Kinnerman & David Glass – Backbeat

This track was massive at Elrow with everyone seeing videos of Richy Ahmed dropping it in 2016, we got the chance to sign it and it became a Kaluki anthem.

6. Pete Zorba featuring Nick Hussey – Faker

This record really stood out last summer when we were playing a lot of shows in Ibiza, at Blue Marlin together. It samplers a huge 80s vocal and is mega funky, but has a nice acid bassline too. A future classic from Pete and Nick for sure.

7. Andre Oliva – Right Now

Such a huge tune for me in my Pirate Copy DJ sets. It was literally the biggest tune in my box for months, so much so that I always had to save it for the last record and nothing could follow it…

8. Pirate Copy – Penina

This record was made summer 2017 and released on Solardo’s label in December. So, it’s still early days, but it’s been in the Beatport Top 20 and recieved heavy support in South America from Marco Carola, Solardo, Tanzmann, Waff and loads more. I think after this summer everyone will know this record, we’ll see.

9. Ovidi Adlert – 1996 Visions

This track went viral after Patrick Topping & Richy Ahmed played it at Parklife 2016 to a huge festival crowd. Another one that did well in the charts and people still ask for a lot when I play.


10. 2nd Sequel & Frankie Dep – Whole Days Under the Covers

Something a little more melodic here, a beautiful record that was used for the after movie….
