Katie Smiles tells us the top 10 sounds from the London underground
The sounds of London’s underground are heading to Embassy Dubai at Grosvenor House on Wednesday November 27 with DJ Katie Smiles taking to the turntables for one night only.
Ahead of her appearance at the very special CointreauVersial Wednesday, we caught up with Katie and asked her for the top 10 tunes currently jumping out of her record bag.
1. Martina Topley Bird, Warpaint & Mark Lanegan
Crystalised (Director’s Cut Signature mix)
It’s the Director’s Cut, and it delivers a pure house style that is always a winner… bliss.
2. Hot Natured ft Roisin Murphy
The Hot Creations squad have teamed up with one of house music’s most prominent vocalists, and the result is sublime.
3. Hot Natured ft The Egyptian Lover
LOVE this. If you haven’t heard it in a club just yet, you will do for sure; it’s certain to stick around for a while no doubt.
4. Jay C
Fab Freddy Said (Peter Horrevorts Remix)
Toolroom records bring it back to the Nu-disco here and I love Horrevorts’ original take on it.
5. Timmy Vegas feat. Jennifer Wallace
Don’t Stop (Casio Social Club Dub Mix)
Again, I’ve been dropping this one to a rapturous reception in recent sets. It works a treat.
Probably the biggest tune in Ibiza this year.. still drops a bomb!
7. Francesco Rossi
Paper Aeroplane (David Morales glamsta mix)
The deep vibe Morales give this remix is perfect for those 4am moments on the dance floor.
8. Parra for Cuva ft Anna Naklab
The vocal on this is SO good… it is on auto play for me right now!
9. Joey Negro & Giom ft Kadija Kamara
Again (Giom mix)
Giom remixes this into a deep dark and wonderfully seductive track on Negro’s Z Records label.
10. Robosonic & Adana Twins
For me this is the perfect “let’s get up and dance” track to get the party started.
