To celebrate his recent EP, we invited Dibly to join us for this Hot Picks feature:
Dilby - Organika - Poker Flat Recordings
It's the lead track from my debut EP on Steve Bug's legendary Poker Flat Recordings. How could I make a list without it?! But in all seriousness, I'm really happy with this track. It has been working in my sets all summer, and I'm honoured Steve decided to release it.
Rhadow - Indigo (Mihai Popoviciu Remix) - Bondage Music
What's not to love? Two legends from the Romanian Deep House and Minimal scene meet to create a blissful piece of timeless music. Mihai is an amazing producer, and, in my opinion, he excels on remix duties.
Hardy Heller & Alex Connors - Remembrance - Ohral
An outstanding piece of Deep House with a driving clubby groove and cheeky vocal sample. Great for all occasions and a wide range of dancefloors.
Sonata Collective - Sneaky Link feat. Tone Blanco - Hungarian Hot Wax
When I heard this in my inbox, I was blown away! Absolute lush UK garage vibes with maximum attitude and swagger. Tone Blanco delivers an amazing vocal, and Sonata Collective backs it up with equally good production. Top-notch stuff, innit bruv.
Dilby - Passing Notes - Circus Recordings
This was one of those tracks that just came together in a few hours. I still remember wrapping it up and dropping it at a gig the same night, and it just worked. It's been a standout track in my sets ever since.
Gorge & Markus Homm - Faded - 8bit
Gorge is one of my favourite artists. Marcus Homm Is one of my favourite artists. 8bit is one of my favourite labels. These two have done many great releases together over the years, and Faded continues that fine tradition.
Downpour - You know - Klause:elle
Downpour is a super-talented producer from Soul, Korea, who is flying under the radar but making incredible music. Absolutely one to watch, and great to see him releasing with my good friends from Zürich. Keep an eye out for a collaboration with myself in the not-too-distant future.
Miraj - Face The Sun - Valiant
Another hidden gem of a producer from down under. Honestly, everything this dude touches is gold. I loved this track from the first listen and it continues to be one of my favourites Miraj has done. Great A&R work from Jacob and Tom to lock this in for Valiant.
DJ T. & Emanuel Satie - The Feeling - Diynamic
This track is one of the best tunes I heard all year! Retro monster or modern classic? I don't know, but it has epic vibes. It is an absolute weapon on the dancefloor, too. Smiles, hugs and a few hands in the ear for good measure.
Soul Of Man - Dirty Waltzer (Denney's Nubreed Edit) - Global Underground
I don't know how I missed this track from Denney's Nubreed on Global Underground. It ticks all the boxes for me and takes me right back to the sound that first hooked me into house music in the late 90s and early 2000s. This will be in sets for years to come!
