Featured DJ Chart: Erol Alkan

Let’s face it, Erol Alkan needs no introduction: the DJ/label chief/producer/all round top guy has steadily built a devoted legion of fans the world over –  from skinny jeaned teenagers to wizened music heads – since first launching the Trash night in London more than a decade ago. We spoke to the Phantasy boss about what tunes were appearing in his DJ sets this month. Topping the list is his killer new collab with Boys Noize…

1. Boys Noize & Erol Alkan – Avalanche (Phantasy Sound)

“Tension drone fiasco.”

2. Marcos Cabral & Shux – Lifetime Groove (OTP Party Breaks)

“If mother nature made a disco record, it would sound like this.”

3. Peter Gordon – That Hat (DFA)

“Worryingly addictive and unhinged.”

4. Round Table Knights – Calypso (Made To Play)

“Possibly the sleeper club hit of the year, quite likely to be bigger in a few months time than even now.”

5. Vitalic – Flashmob (Popof Mix) (Different)

“Unstoppable.”

6. Cassius – 99 (Tim Green Remix) (Cassius Records)

“Classic update with taste.”

7. Rocha – Hands Of Love (Fingers Of Sand) (Gatto Frittos Menorcan Nightmare Version) (International Feel)

“Turn off your mind, relax and float downstream.”

8. Steve Mason – Lost And Found (Domino)

“If talent equated fortune then Steve Mason would be a billionaire.”

9. Chilly Gonzales – Never Stop (Original) (Phantasy Sound)

“The guy’s a genius. What more to say?”

10. Jamtech Foundation – Too Fast (Zombie Disco Squad remix) (Discobelle)

“My favourite ZDS track so far.”
