Playlist | Groove Armada Get Us Hyped For Arcadia London
The duo's Tom Findlay hand-picks ten club cuts to get you hyped for their DJ Set at Arcadia London this Bank Holiday weekend...
We don't know about you but we're wetting ourselves with excitement because Arcadia London is hitting the capital this Bank Holiday weekend, bringing their world-famous, notorious steel spider to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park for two days of audio and visual mayhem.
Across the weekend their mesmerising and multi-sensory Metamorphosis show and their brand new indoor arena 'Reactor' will keep us spellbound as a line up featuring Leftfield (Live), Rudimental (DJ Set), Sven Väth, Noisia (DJ Set), Dusky, Eats Everything plus the legendary Groove Armada (DJ Set) and more will be providing the beats.
In anticipation of Arcadia's 10th anniversary, Groove Armada's Tom Findlay has hand-picked a bunch of bangers to keep you going until Saturday, and you never know, if you're heading down you might just hear a few of these in their set...
1. Paul Simon - You Can Call Me Al (GA’s Dub Redemption)
"One of ours at Number 1, 'cause who doesn’t love a bit of shameless self-promotion?! This is our remix of Paul Simon’s ‘You Can Call Me Al’. We did our very best with one of the most iconic pieces of music there is, it’s quite a reversion but trust me it kicks like a mule."
2. Dennis Sulta - But I Do DSM
"This super talented Glaswegian DJ is a real favourite of mine, and I just love this muscular remake of a disco anthem. Catch one of his sets this summer, he doesn’t disappoint."
3. Damiano von Eckert - Bubbles
"Another underground cat that's hard not to love. Great DJ, wonderful producer. This is a great record that will take you by surprise, at least it did me."
4. Alex Virgo - Ze Dance
"On Eats Everything's always essential ‘Edible’ imprint, this is another disco/house stomper that brings the funk to any occasion."
5. Gary Beck - Bicycle Wheel
"Playing at Arcadia always brings out the frustrated techno DJ in me, and Gary Beck manages to make techno funky, here he is in full effect!"
6. Kevin Knapp - Blah Blah Blah
"Really great vocalist/producer doing what he does best on one of the best British house labels there’s ever been, that’s Hot Creations btw."
7. Sophie Lloyd Ft. Dames Brown - Calling Out (Floorplan Extended Club Mix)
"Big big summer tune giving a killer remake by some real remixers de jour. Heavyweight house stamped with quality."
8. Butch - Countach
"Love Butch. He can do some disco stuff, percussive work outs, and here he gets all narly and acidic in our arse, what’s not to like really."
9. Groove Armada - Tune 101 (Jamie Jones 'Drip Drop' Remix)
"Is it wrong of me to think this was slightly overlooked last year, when it’s truly a dub house anthem in the making. I will never miss an opportunity to stick this in a chart, so here it is."
10. Alison Limerick - Where Love Lives
"As classic house tunes go this has a little bit of everything and works at pretty much any house party…..might even drop it on la weekend. Enjoy."
