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.
