With NYE around the corner, we spoke to one of the original Urban Nerds – Rattus Rattus to get his top 5 tracks of 2013. This year has been a fantastic year for those producers and DJs flying the flag for the bassier side of house music, and long may it continue! Here are the tracks that Rattus Rattus has picked out as getting the most reloads in his sets!
1. Incoming – Celsius
Mad Tech has been the game changing label this year putting out a number of excellent releases. This EP from Celcius is untouchable with Incoming’s lead lines making it unstoppable.
2. Brown Bread – Mak and Pasteman
This duo are unstoppable at the moment. This stripped back roller set for release on Breach’s Naked Naked label is already making waves.
3. Elite VIP – My Nu Leng
My Nu Leng’s classic that set the start of the year alight got a new lease of life as they look set for world domination next year with their remix of Klangkarussell being played by every DJ worth his salt.
4. The Story – SecondCity
The sensational SecondCity put out a multitude of incredible releases this year. This release was all over the club circuit after being released on Huxley’s ‘Saints and Sonnets’ imprint.
5. Hips and Thighs – My Nu Leng (Kry Wolf Remix)
This one is tearing up dance floors where ever it’s played, some serious weight from another duo who have charged to the top of the DJ circuit this year.
Well known across London and much further afield for his punchy brand of bass music and energetic DJ sets, Rattus Rattus was managed to squeeze 28 tracks into this mix under an hour long.
