The ‘It’s High Time Hubie Did a Chart’ Chart – May Edition

Alrighty, I’ve been meaning to do a DJ chart for quite some time so, assuming I remember, this will be the first of a monthly series of Hubie charts. So here’s goes for May… this isn’t a particularly obscure or up-front chart, just a bunch of good party tunes really 🙂

(Most of these tunes are available to purchase from your favourite download store, so please support the artists)

01. Haggstrom feat. Terri Walker – Be My Baby – Peo de Pitte Remix (Flat Out) – I’m sure everyone knows this one. It’s my favourite breaks tune of the year so far. Sounds like the Plump DJs on crack. Sorry, I’m running low on similies today

02. DJ Zinc – Submarines (Bingo Bass) – My favourite track from the impressive Killa Sound EP. Kinda house, kinda breaks, probably falls into the warehouse category that IDJ seem to be so keen on pushing. But it’s all good in the hood. As Zinc might say. Possibly.

03. Djedjotronic feat. Spoek – Dirty & Hard – Stereoheroes Remix (Boys Noize) – I discovered this in blogland so I’m sure it’s been around a lot already, but I really like it. This is another great example of ‘warehouse’ – house beats, breakbeats, a smattering of baltimore as well, and a sexy herve-esque bassline. Noice.

04. Jack Beats feat. Dynamite MC – What – Dub Mix (Cheaper Thrills) – Filthy baltimore beats, wonky bass and lots of sirens. What more could you ask for? The original is a little too shouty for me (as if this track needs any more energy as it is) so I’ve opted for the dub here. Touch me.

05. Dopamine – Spunk – Vandal Mix (Lot 49) – I do like a bit of tech-funk, me. This has been around for a while now but it’s still one of my firm (ooer) faves. Oh and it has sirens in it too. I seem to like tracks with sirens it seems. Woop.

06. Solid Groove – This Is Sick – Yeah! Woho! Remix (CDR) – Yeah this has been around for yonks now, but it’s cheeky and I like cheeky. It generally gets a ‘what the fuck is this?’ reaction too, which is nice. No sirens though, which is a pity.

07. Maelstrom feat. MC Youthstar – The Beat Police – Is This House Mix (CDR) – Quite possibly the best-titled tune to have been given away on thisisbreaks.com! I assume this is Mr ‘Strom’s tongue-in-cheek up-yours at the beat purists… well, whatever it is, I likes it. Plus it has ‘police’ in the title and police tend to use sirens, so that is good too.

08. Project Bassline – Drop The Pressure (Cheap Thrills) – More big bassline battyness. Fits in really well with…

09. Rico Tubbs – Boom Riddum (Cheap Thrills) – Ragga-tinged, booty-bouncing lushness. I know this is the third Cheap/Cheaper Thrills entry in this list, but when they keep churning out genre-defying awesomeness like this, then I’m gonna keep rating ’em. Dutty.

10. Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Zero – N.A.S.A. Bloody Lobo Remix (CDR) – Time for some cheese. And I like cheese. I also like Yeah Yeah Yeahs and N.A.S.A. so this was always going to be an enjoyable conjugality for me. So yeah, a good end-of-night, hug-the-random-next-to-you kinda tune. Splart.

I guess I should mention that if you like any of the tunes in this list, then you should check out my radio show, Hubie Sounds, on Brap FM cos I rinse this kind of thing on a regular basis. ‘An ting.
