Unfortunately, the summer is officially over for us East Coasters and Ibiza season is rolling to an end, but the records just keep coming! It is that time of year, where artists take their well-deserved breaks from massive touring and hit the studio to use the soaked up Summer vibes as their inspiration. This past month, we have collected fifteen of the best "caliente" tracks that will keep the fire burning through these cold months. The September Tech-House chart is lit up with Catz 'n Dogz's remix of 'Woman in the Ghetto' and 'God made me Phunky', and a special remix from Franky Rizardo. Set off the night with 'Hook Up' from The Glitz and set the dancefloor ablaze with 'Party' by PAWSA.
1. ‘Hook Up (stripped back version)’ - The Glitz feat. Fadila [DFTD]
This German duo makes their debut on the DFTD label with a dark, acidic record. The track is driven by harsh drums, astonishing harmony, and trippy vocals, giving the song a brooding atmosphere.
2. ‘Shake Your Booty’ - Gianni Bini & The Rituals [DTFD]
This full vocal track is another banger on the DTFD label. Packed with bass driven energy it will not only “funk” your booty but also make you wanna put your hands in the air.
3. ‘Urano Beatz’ - Sergio Fernandez [Snatch! Records]
This award-recognized Spanish artist graces is us with another incredible track. 'Urano Beatz' is full of swing driven by a potent and harmonic melody, a subtle but leading percussion and beautiful bouncy beats. A guarantee dancefloor hit!
4. 'God Made Me Phunky' (Franky Rizardo Remix) - MD X-Spress [4 The Floor Records]
