This has been our jam this year. Armand Van Helden makes what could be the club hit of the year with the track “I Want Your Soul”. Perfect pounding blend of electro and pop, and to top it all off the Crookers boys roughs it up with a nasty bassline and some added thump making this our dancefloor favorite.
Hatchmatik is another crazy canadian and he burst onto our radar with a string of banging remixes (including a much played M.I.A remix). This track has been our fall anthem and it’s been a success wherever we dj’ed. This is a perfect track for the club where Hatch upped the tempo with some nasty b-more flavour, touched up the horns and added some handclaps, not to mention the fact that the girls all love it…
PS. Check back for a Hatchmatik Mixin’ It Up in a not too distant future…
Ian from a Different Kitchen got us in to Lil Mama ages ago but then Krazy Fiesta came along and made it a real dance floor banger. Krazy Fiesta has been sending us remixes since the beginning of Discobelle so it was a sad day when we heard the news about Jesper’s tragic death in August. Even though we didn’t know him very well personally, we do miss him a lot. We know he would have wanted his work to live on and to be played out on the dancefloor. So it is always great to hear that a lot of you guys are playing the track when you DJ. Jesper, we salute you!
We had to have Radioclit on our list since they’ve been killing it this year. This remix is pure bliss!
We had to have a Chromeo track on the list, and there was a ton of stuff to choose from. So, we decided to give you some more of that french flavour that you all long for. Strip Steve from Bordeaux made our jaws drop when he handed us this. He remixes the track “Fancy Footwork” from the canadian discofunksters into some excellent 90Â´s era french house banger. Trust us, you’ll definetely hear alot more from this youngster in 2008.

Biggest rap track of the year + a remix from Techtwelve (another one of those talented canadians), nuff said!
This is probably the best Swedish dance track of the year and the beat is up there as one of the best beats of the year. We have featured it a couple of times here on the blog, so there is not much more to say. Alla som inte dansar Ã¤r vÃ¥ldtÃ¤ktsmÃ¤n!
