Emanuel Satie | Five for the Floor

Emanuel Satie has already made his mark on seminal imprints like Avotre and Get Physical, rising to become label founder DJ T.’s go-to studio teammate. Next up for the Berliner is Defected’s deeper and darker sub label DFTD. Stripping things back to groove and emotion – house music’s foundations – his new EP Your Body left us thirsty for more so we asked him to pick five faves that forever fill the floor. Dig in below.

Adam Beyer ‘Time Flies’ (Tiger Stripes Remix) [Truesoul]


“Tiger Stripes has to be one of my top-five producers of the past year or so – everything he touches at the moment is gold. He’s carving out his very own, heavy, techy but still has a melodic style. This remix here is a prime example of that. I really love the craziness of the synths and the marching groove, it’s a sure-shot on the dancefloor. Also make sure you check out his last EP on Truesoul, the sub label of Adam Beyer’s Drumcode. This one shows the whole bandwidth of Tiger Stripes: a total banger with ‘Brrr’ and a timeless more musical piece with ‘Detroit’.”

Krankbrother ‘Washed Up’ [Krankbrother]

“Krankbrother is one of these acts that have appeared in my playlist quite a lot lately. I could choose almost any of their tracks because essentially it’s the same story with every one of them. I never grasp how amazing their tracks are on first listen, it’s only when I play them out in a club and see the effect they have on the dancefloor that I realise these guys are geniuses. High energy house music with crazy and interesting ideas. This one was released on their very own self-titled label Krankbrother. Blows the roof off every time.”

Shlomi Aber ‘Freakside’ [Ovum]

“More or less a classic from 2007, released on Josh Wink’s long running and always-relevant Ovum Recordings. The synths on this track are amazing, providing a really big, techy vibe, plus they are so much fun to play around with using your FXs. Ovum and Shlomi have consistently churned out timeless music for years now – the fact I still play this track after eight years is testament to that. If you play this for bigger crowds or in bigger venues, you will hear a lot of Oooh’s and Aaah’s.”

Axel Boman ‘ABBA 002’ [Studio Barnhus]

“Axel Boman is a genius when it comes to sampling. Absolutely love this guy. Always intelligent but not too serious music, his tracks have a certain humour to them. This is an unofficial edit of an Abba song. I saw Gerd Janson dropping it at the Trouw closing in Amsterdam and it went down a storm and I’ve been playing it ever since. It’s a track for these very special moments. Still remember playing it this year at Sonar in Barcelona when the sun came up – it was probably the track of the set for me. If you want to see happy, smiling faces all over the venue, just play this.”

Emanuel Satie ‘Farewell’ [DFTD]

“A bit of self-love for my upcoming release on Defected sub-label DFTD. I wrote this song in one day after my Grandmother, who was really close to me, died. It’s just a raw, unfiltered expression of my feelings that day, I didn’t have any labels or the market in mind. Personal tracks like this can either fail completely or people can find something in them: it’s either hit or miss. When I played it for the first time in a club, it worked really well and I knew I had to put this out. Luckily Defected picked it up – very happy to share this track with the world.”
