2018 has been a standout year for Purple Disco Machine. Despite being a lauded producer for almost 10 years and picking up numerous production awards, it was recent releases like 'Dished' plus his remixes of Weiss' 'Feel My Needs' and Shakedown's 'At Night' which catapulted the PDM name into the spotlight even further.
With such a knack for creating dancefloor-ready tracks, we thought the deep funk advocate would know exactly the right tunes to soundtrack a party, especially something as huge as New Year's. So log into your streaming account, YouTube or Soundcloud and get adding Purple Disco Machine's ultimate playlist.
Purple Disco Machine - Body Funk
This has now become a modern day anthem for me. I play it at every show and the crowd sing the words back.
Kool & The Gang – Celebration
NYE is all about the party and celebrating the old year and looking forward to the new year. Kool & The Gang nailed the uptempo track for this moment. I like to play an edit of it by my friend The Reflex.
This has been my biggest record in the UK so far. It was on the radio all summer. Illyus & Barrientos did a great job of taking it in a tougher direction.
Fatboy Slim - Praise You (Purple Disco Machine Extended Remix)
It was a privilege and an honour to remix one of the greatest ever dance records by one of the greatest ever dance artists.
Divine – Native Love
I am a big fan of the legendary Bobby Orlando’s productions, and the Italo Disco sound in general, as you can probably tell from my own records! This is such a pumping fun track from the late lamented Divine.
Shakedown – At Night (Purple Disco Machine Remix)
I was lucky enough to be asked to remix one of Defected’s best anthems.
DJ Koze – Pick Up
A beautiful filter disco, French touch track from this year by my fellow German, DJ Koze. Possibly the best example of this style since Stardust?
Michael Jackson – Don’t Stop Til You Get Enough
It cannot be a New Year party without an MJ track. This is one of the best of a very high quality selection.
Mighty Mouse – The Spirit
A lovely modern disco track which will rock any party.
Melé & Shovell – Pasilda
Latin House made a welcome revival this year and this is one of the best examples. Even though it is dark and cold on New Year in the UK you know it is hot and sunny somewhere else. This track will remind you!
