Skrufff Top 5:

1: Bodyrox: Yeah Yeah (D Ramirez vocal club mix) (Eye Industries)

DTPM/ Fiction resident/ all round nice guy Nick Bridges looks on course for a massive crossover hit with the new seriously catchy vocal mix of his already popular electro houses stomper Yeah Yeah. Co-produced by Jon Pearn, the new mix combines a Nenah Cherry style rap over D Ramirez’ already road tested instrumental, though like all big records is impressively greater than the sum of its parts.

2: Play Paul: La La Land (Remixes) Luscious

Play Paul returns to his (so far) finest moment with some slamming remixes of his Green Velvet cover La La Land.

3: Alex Dolby & Maskio: Detroit Land (Mantra)

Italy’s Mantra deliver another fine mainly instrumental electro tech-house anthem that’s perfect for acapellas and mood-building moments. Dark, ominous and powerful.

4: Uffie: Hot Chick

(Ed Banger Records)

Pedro Winter protégé Parisien starlet Uffie talks dirty again over phat slamming electro/ hip hop beats provided by uber-producer Mr Ozio. Catchy, sleazy and camp (release date is October 3).

5: Air- Late Night Tales (Album Of The Week)

Ambient duo Nic Godin and Jean-Benoit Dunckel (aka Air) release a highly eclectic mix CD of their favourite songs next month, which includes tracks from Black Sabbath, Japan and classical composer Ravel.
