What's rocking Blue Marlin? Jixo & Danz choose their top 10
There’s double trouble of a deep, tech and groovy nature with Jixo and Danz in the house. The Lebanese DJs – Daniel Jahed and Daniel Azar – are residents at Blue Marlin UAE. Here’s their Top 10 floor smashers…
Finder (Martin Eyerer Remix) (Kling Klong)
Kling Klong Records boss Martin Eyerer’s is the pick here. It’s a bit more dark and deep techno compared to the original.
02. JULICHE HERNANDEZ
Dog Donkey (M.A.M. Remix) (Pura Music)
The pairing of Juliche Hernandez along with M.A.M. is a great combination for this deep-tech tune.
03. LOS SURUBA
Can Pilot (Juliche Hernandez Remix) (Suruba)
Another appearance here from Juliche Hernandez. This is a cool underground track that’s perfect to drop as you’re building up a set.
04. MARQUEZ III
LMLY (Tigerskin Remix) (Dilek)
Alex Krüger gets to work on this tech-house track under his Tigerskin name, producing a rather special remix – as always.
05. MATTHEW DEKAY & LEE BURRIDGE
Lost In A Moment (Dixon Rework) (Innervisions)
The owner of Innervision Recordings comes good with a remix that is faster and more melodic than the original mix. A perfect track for closing a set.
06. MONKEY SAFARI
Hi Life (Cheeky Bold Cover) (KNM)
This track is the best tune to drop when you need to put a smile on everyone’s face. It’s a transition track that is quite long, around the 10-minute mark, but it’s happy enough to keep the crowd interested.
07. SABB FT RAFA BARRIOS
Illusiones (Original Mix) (Noir Music)
This techy track has something quite magical about it and has a weird sexy vocal in it. Put simply, it’s a top track!
08. JOHN TEJADA
Somewhere (Original Mix) (Cr2 Records)
Somewhere is a weird-sexy-dirty-techy-groovy tune. There’s no doubt about it, John Tejada has been releasing some amazing tunes lately.
Seven Wonders (Original Mix) (Catwash Records)
We’d either close our set with this track or drop it as the last tune of the night. It has a great, happy vibe that’s best for sunrise or sunset.
10. LA FLEUR
Nightflow (Kenny Larkin Drama Mix) (Watergate Records)
At 15 minutes long, this is a rather epic track. But at no point do you lose interest. It keeps teasing the crowd and they’ll want to know what’s coming next.
