Germany-based house talent Juliet Sikora has released music from some of the biggest names in underground club music with her own Kittball Records imprint.
Everyone from Tube & Berger and Vanilla Ace to Ida Engberg and Riva Starr have appeared on the label in the past, and Juliet’s latest finds her return for the release of her 2-track ‘Let Loose’ EP.
She joins us this week to highlight some of her most essential set inclusions, which includes productions from Kerri Chandler, DJ Pierre, and Matt Sassari, among others. Get the full list, including words from Juliet Sikora below.
Kerri Chandler & Dreamer G – Hurry Up (Kerri’s Again Mix)
Label: Ministry of Sound
New Jersey house legend Kerri Chandler never disappoints with his productions. He is a master of the old school sound I have loved to hear since I started partying. I always find that exact vibe in his productions and his latest track exactly embodies the 90s house sound I love. Plus, no one’s kicks kick quite like Kerri’s!
RareTwo Inc. – Cum 2 Geza
This track was love at first sound for me. As soon as I heard it I fell under the spell of its great synth work and masterful arrangement. Since then I just cannot imagine ever playing a set without it somewhere. It has an impossibly catchy vocal, rolling beats, and is just an absolutely irresistible house groover.
Matt Sassari – Step To
Label: There is A Light
I’ve had my eye on Matt for a long time. He is a great talent that always delivers something fresh. Somehow he manages to knock out one strong banger after another and I particularly like his harder melancholic beats, they always hook me in. And that is the case with this track. He is a beat magician.
DJ Pierre – Love Desire (DJ Pierre Wildpitch Mix)
Label: Afro Acid Digital
Ah Pierre, the original acid master. It’s essential to know this man, he’s been around for decades and is still faithful to his 303 line with a twist in the zeitgeist of the current sound. A little harder house sound, with a strong vocal, these are the tracks I love to play in the early hours. This track is a groover for the heart.
Havoc & Lawn – This Vibe
Label: Kittball Records
Havoc & Lawn are another pair you simply have to keep an eye on. They surprise me each time with the versatility of their production, no two tracks ever sound the same and ‘This Vibe’ is an absolute ACID monster for me. I really love the track and have been playing it since we got it as a demo for Kittball.
