Our correspondent hit the Circoloco dancefloor on Monday June 4. These are the records he remembers hearing..
1. Plastikman – Spastik - Moscoman
At a party like Circoloco, time seems to stand still and with the garden filling up nice and early it seemed only right that Israeli artist Moscoman should drop Richie Hawtin’s timeless 'Spastik' and it received the reaction it deserved.
2. Three Drives - Greece 2000 - Moscoman
With more than a passing nod to the White Isle’s rich trance heritage, Moscoman closed out his set with this evocatively rousing classic.
3. Lil Louis - French Kiss - Jackmaster
Jackmaster revels in challenging what is deemed to be acceptable during a set and the slowing down and then speeding up of this classic was not lost on the already bouncing crowd.
4. Hugo Massien – 0011 – Jackmaster
When Jackmaster isn’t schooling crowds on forgotten classics, he is dropping analogue bombs fresh off the press like Hugo Massien’s '0011'.
5. Clivilles & Cole – A Deeper Love (A Deeper Feeling Mix) - Jackmaster
Rounding out a fine set packed full of highlights, Jackmaster dropped this soulful number that reduced a packed-out garden full of ravers to a collection of soul singers.
6. Italojohnson - 5 (B1) - Magda & Mike Servito
Moving indoors, Mike Servito and sparring partner Magda were already deep in to a set chock full of bass heavy bangers. The B side from mysterious 3-man act Italojohnson 5th EP hit the nail right on the head.
7. Jaydee - Plastic Dreams – DJ Tennis
One of the biggest tracks of the night came from Italian selector DJ Tennis and Jaydee’s 'Plastic Dreams' was almost tailored made for the terrace.
8. Analog People in a Digital World - Rose Rouge – The Martinez Brothers
This update of the St. Germain classic 'Rose Rouge' has always gone down well, but at the hands of The Martinez Brothers almost any room would succumb to its sultry vocals.
9. Tori Amos – Professional Widow (Armand van Helden Remix) – The Martinez Brothers
Keeping on an anthem tip, The Martinez Brothers rolled out another to devastating effect. Closed eyes around all around the main room signified this track still does the business on even the most discerning of dancefloors.
10. Mad Powda – D.R.U.M.Z. – Craig Richards & Seth Troxler
This Little-known Clive Henry and Justin Drake alias offered up one of the more upfront moments of the Craig Richards and Seth Troxler pairing, charged with closing out the terrace.
