Sirus Hood has been kicking off 2017 with a bang. He's currently on tour with Sacha Robotti, and the two have been taking over the greater US with their incredible DJ-ing skills and production to match.
We sat down with Hood to talk about his favorite tracks
Ki Creighton - MST House Season (Waze & Odyssey's I Wanna Party Mix) -Elrow Music
Every time I play this track, it seems to awaken the tribal soul of everyone on the dance floor including myself. It's energy vehicles some kind of euphoria. I love the universality of it, anyone listening to it will feel the urge to dance!
Phil Weeks, Dan Ghenacia - First Step (Original Mix) – Robsoul
I love Phil Weeks' label "Robsoul" and this track is part of it. Very groovy sound, we can recognize Dan Ghenacia's magic all the way. French touch!
Sirus Hood & Roland Clark - I'm House (Original Mix) – Dirtybird
One of my latest releases on Dirtybird. I really love seeing the crazy reactions of the crowd every time I play it, what a pleasure. Roland Clark's vocals, the contrasts between melodic and rhythmic beats made it very special and I very much enjoyed producing it.
Green Velvet - Thoughts (Original Mix) – Relief
The vocals of this track very quickly gets into your head and never gets out before quite some time. And it is not unpleasant. Very effective track in a set, I love playing it.
Fusion Groove Orchestra feat. Steve Lucas - If Only I Could (Liem Remix) - Classic Music Company
I like to end my sets with a classic track that will make everyone have a smile on their faces. This track always does the job perfectly, amazing vocals on a powerful beat and good vibes.
Sirus Hood - What They Do (Anek Remix) - Tobus X
This original track of mine was one of the first ones that I released under the name Sirus Hood. Anek made a massive remix 3 years later, full of energy, that gets the crowd going. I'm very happy about this one.
Subb-an - This Place (Nic Fanciulli remix) – Saved
This track is one of my ultimate favorites, it's groove is so addictive, I never get tired of it. One of the best memories I had playing it was on a beach in Corsica, every soul was really into it and felt the vibe of this amazingly produced track.
Paul Johnson - After Dark (Original Mix) - Chiwax Classic Edition (Vinyl Only)
Paul Johnson is one of my biggest inspirations as well as the genre of this track being from the Chicago house scene from the 90’s. This track is one of my favorites and really drives people crazy including me.
