Peggy Gou - Play Gou Mix
Rested, reinvigorated and re-energised, Peggy Gou is back with a power hour of heat to get you sweating your socks off. Curated as a workout mix for Nike, she bounces through a selection of world groove, melodic house and retro electro. A perfect pump up to the day.
Michael Bibi - Live at Tobacco Dock, London
Michael Bibi’s meteoric rise over the last 5 years is something to behold and we had the pleasure of welcoming the SolidGrooves boss to Tobacco Dock last December. Ushering in the dawn of the new decade, Bibi left no doubt as to why he’s the afterhours king with a closing set to remember.
Honey Dijon - La Femme Fantastique (feat. Josh Caffe)
Honey Dijon continues to tease the music world with the release of her second single from the forthcoming album ‘Black Girl Magic’. ‘La Femme Fantastique’ sees the Chicago star collaborate on a raunchy hypnotic hit with London based producer and vocalist Josh Caffe . Cutting through the seductive vocals is a raw edged synth that’s guaranteed to steam up the dancefloor.
Bruno Furlan - Line Five
Brazilian prodigy Bruno Furlan seemed to have shot out of nowhere 5 years ago and was picked out by Claude VonStroke as a bonafide star of the future. Fulfilling every bit of his high expectations, Bruno has gone on to dominate the tech house scene across the Americas. One of his early club hits was this stripped back steady wobbler on Dirtybird named ‘Line Five’.

For a genre that’s as established and massive as tech house is now, it’s impressive to note that it was largely on the fringes of electronic music before the mid 2000s. Featuring early works from the likes of Terry Francis & Giddy Jackson, Cajmere and Booka Shade, here are the 10 tracks, pre-2005, that would go on to influence the highly popular cross-genre.
Patrick Topping - Live At Calton Hill, Edinburgh
Talking about tech house stars of today, there’s few bigger than Newcastle very own Patrick Topping. A frequent flyer on the Beatport charts and a regular on the Ibiza circuit, the Trick boss recently took to new heights with a disco infused set at the top of Carlton Hill in Edinburgh for Terminal V.
