Defected Records mainstay Hifi Sean is known in equal measures for his anything goes musical attitude and his talents as a producer. His DJ sets are joyous and atmospheric, touching on underground gems, right through to singalong classics. We asked the man himself to give us a taster of what's making his crowds get down right now.
Shalvoy & Hifi Sean - 'Jumpy'
This is a new EP collab with a bestie on Midnight Riot Records. Think a dark Germanic Italic darkroom groove and you're half way up the tree.
Bohannon - 'Come Dance With Me' (Belabouche edit)
There were only 30 copies of this made on vinyl would you believe. I'm happy to have one as it's a sexy mutha.
Jansons - 'Killer Key'
House music in its purest form and works a room like it's supposed to do.
Shalvoy - 'Bad Hombres'
My good friend rocks the boat with this pure punk funk workout.
Tamiko Jones - 'Can’t Live Without Your Love'
I first bought this disco classic as a teenager in a charity shop when I picked up a wad of old disco and soul 12”s, it blew my mind and still does every time.
Mighty Mouse - 'The Spirit'
When Mr. Mouse gets it right... he really does get it right.
Floorplan - 'Made Up My Mind'
I like when he goes and throws a bit of gospel in but I'm surprised he gets away with half the blatant samples he uses though.
Norty Cotto - 'Get Higher'
I've got to have a bit of old school NYC here. I have danced to this in a NY club and it is officially stamped by the city.
PBR Streetgang - Late Night Party Line
There are about 4235 records with Loletta Holloway samples kicking about at moment but when it's this good who cares about the semantics?
Golden Bug - 'Physical Disco' (Cowboy Ryhthmbox edit)
Kraftwerk on acid down the local disco bumping with the local Buckfast drinkers.
Nico Saav - 'Steam'
If Bohanon was to still make records today this could be a fine example of what he could and would do.
Catch Hifi Sean at Homoelectric on Saturday 4th November. Tickets below.
