DJ S.K.T Needs You To Hear These 10 Tracks
The 'Take Me Away' hit maker picks ten tunes he's feeling right now...
DJ S.K.T recently made his mark on the UK Top 40 with his reworking of True Faith's 90s classic 'Take Me Away', teaming up with singer/songwriter/DJ/producer Rae taking it to a deeper, darker place but nonetheless taking us right onto the dancefloor.
Now, with a busy summer ahead, the London producer has picked out for us 10 essential summer tracks that's he's loving right now...
1. DJ S.K.T – 'Dirty' (Defected)
"One of my new tracks. It's got a wicked little groove and a sexy vocal with support so far from Hannah Wants, B Traits, Danny Howard, Pete Tong and Mistajam. Really looking forward to this being released on 13th July."
2. As I Am – 'House Toy' (Riaz Dhanani Mix) (Up-Tempo)
"Something brand new on my label "Up-Tempo Records" following on from As I Am's previous release with us 'Saving Grace', Riaz Dhanani has turned in a heavy hitting remix that I'm spinning a lot."
3. Hardrive – 'Deep Inside' (Low Steppa Remix) (Defected)
"Obviously the Louis Vega original is an absolute classic, I think Low Steppa has done a great job of updating it but keeping the original vibe of the track also. This one gets played a lot in my sets."
4. SFA – 'Flowers' (Curtis Gabriel & Sam Divine Remix) (White)
"Sam Divine is an awesome DJ who's supported me for a long time, it's great to see her come into her own as a producer now. Here, she's updated a classic which always gets a great reaction!"
5. DJ S.K.T – 'Big Bad Boy' (Defected)
"The other track from the Dirty EP. This one's quite dark, a real roller and it's getting a lot of play on the underground, one of my favourite productions."
6. Jaded – 'She Likes It' (Black Butter)
"Quite a new production team from West London. I'm really liking their sound and have been playing this in my sets and on the radio."
7. DJ S.K.T Ft. Rae – 'Take Me Away' (Azuli/Atlantic)
"Had to include this! Amazing to see it enter the UK Top 20 and also get A-listed across radio. Still goes down a treat whenever I play it!"
8. Cause & Affect – 'Another Time' (Taiki & Nulight) (Fat! Records)
"I'm really feeling what Taiki & Nulight are doing right now - sick, dirty baselines and hard beats."
9. Little By Little – 'Bang The Box' (Defected)
"Another big one on Defected. This one's pretty minimal, beats, baselines and a little vocal hook that draws you in."
10. Dusky – 'Skin Deep' (White)
"Really like what Dusky do and this is no exception. Very emotive and feel-good with their distinct production traits."
If you find yourself in Ibiza next week DJ S.K.T is playing Amnesia on Tuesday 14th July with Hannah Wants, Todd Terry, Waze & Odyssey and Sonny Fodera.
