Though they’ve achieved a lot in the past 12 months, including collaborations with chart toppers like Clean Bandit, production duo Gorgon City are probably a way off an invite from Radio 4‘s prestigious Desert Island Discs. Still not to worry, not only should new single Ready For Your Love (Ft MNEK) edge them a bit closer to their goal, but the pair knows what they’d play because they’ve actually DJed a party on a desert island (see below). It sounds a little like this…

Beastie Boys – Paul Revere

“The Beasties were one of the first groups we got into. Loved their energy and the combination of their three flows and sounds.”

808 State – Pacific State

“Absolute classic. Hard to believe this was made in 1989!”

Sunship – Try Me Out (Let Me Lick It…) (ft Anita Kelsey)

“Sunship have got the best two-step beats in the game – and the song arrangement of this one is insane. Bubblin’ dancefloor perfection!”

Earth, Wind & Fire – Let’s Groove

“You can’t have a party playlist without some classic disco and funk”

John B – Up All Night

“One of the best epic drum and bass tracks of all time. Many a laser was reached to listening to this between the ages of 17-21. Such an amazing intro and reece bassline in this one.”

Rakim – Guess Who’s Back

“Rakim has one of the best voices in Hip Hop. Legendary chorus and timeless production from DJ Premier on this late 90s classic.”

Wookie – What’s Going Down

“Another garage classic. Wookie/Exemen has so many big tunes in his back catalogue. This one’s instant party vibes when those pianos come in!”

Scorpio – Li Li

“Classic drum and bass from Roni Size & DJ Die’s Scorpio alias. This one’s got a fun party vibe to it. It reminds you of being a young teenager listening to old One Nation tape packs.”

Scuba – Adrenaline

“More of a 5am party track. We drop this modern classic sometimes if we’re playing an end of night DJ set and the crowd look like they’re up for getting euphoric.”

Tori Amos – Professional Widow (Armand Van Helden)

“We recently DJed at a beach party on a private island in the Bahama’s for the Holy Ship. we played before Armand Van Helden, and he played all his classics like this one. What a day that was! Can’t beat this music in the blazing sun.”
