There’s no doubt that German DJ, producer and relative new comer, SIDNEY CHARLES is on a winning streak. Having just dropped a three-tracker on Jaymo and Andy George’s much-lauded MODA BLACK imprint, the “Going Down” EP is but the tip of Sidney’s stellar back catalogue – no mean feat for a producer who released his first single in 2011.
In just three short years, the Hamburg-born twenty something has jumped for local club hero to house music heavy hitter, securing a residence this year at Tribal Sessions Ibiza and working on a project with fellow Sankeys star, Darius Syrossian. We sat down with Sidney for a quick chat last week, to find out his five best bits of dance floor fire. Buckle in folks, this is going to be big!
1. Chris Carrier | Prohbited Area
Just such a nice a raw-groover that gives lot of energy to my sets.
2. Basement Jaxx | Mermaid of Salinas (loco Dice Remix)
The synth horn gives me goosebumps every time I play it!
3. Laura Jones | Bright Lights (Cassy Remix)
Im in love with Cassy’s sound. The stumpy kick and the hypnotic pad & synth play make it to one of my favourite set enhancers.
4. Bicep | Circles
Proper 909-techno – love to play this one in bigger warehouses!
5 Kerri Chandler | Climax 3
Typical Chandler Old School-Style. Perfect to start my set with this one.
