London house DJ and party thrower, Enzo Siragusa, is getting ready to bring his act to the states. His Fuse party brand has delivered time and time again in London, the UK and around Europe, and now he is coming to North America for gigs in New York and Montreal. Ahead of his debut at Output this Friday, December 1st, we got him in the New York State of Mind to share six of his favorite tracks ever from the big apple. Pick up his new EP on his Fuse label here and then get down to these absolute classics below.
Francois K - Hypnodelic
This feature is going to be hard. The house music that came from New York in the 90’s had a huge impact on me and my sound. I think this is one of the best records I own, real emotive house music that touches you deep inside. Francios K was a big inspiration for me: a resident DJ at seminal clubs and parties like Paradise Garage and Body & Soul, he produced incredible music, and was a key figure in our scene - building a community around it - thats what its all about.
Kenlou - The Bounce
This record has never left my record box and works on a dance floor every time! Its difficult to pick my favorite Masters At Work track as their productions are on another level. I had to pick this as it has transcended all the styles of music I’ve played over the last 20 plus years.
Jon Cutler feat Vanessa Freeman - Lifted Up
Most people know Jon Cutler for "Its Yours," arguably his biggest track, which I played a lot. However he produced some incredible house tracks over the years. One of my favorites is "Lifted" -- good quality soulful house music!
Discocaine - Keep On (Mike Delgado Mix)
Been playing this record a lot again recently and it goes off every time. I love the fact all the old U.S house music that inspired me has stood the test of time and still sounds so fresh to a new generation of clubbers.
Kerri Chandler - Track One (Atmosphere EP)
This feature is getting really difficult now, how do you choose your favorite Kerri Chandler track?! I own all his records and love his sound. Another huge inspiration and it was a massive honor to play with him earlier this year. A great producer, DJ, professional and a true gentleman. massive respect.
Kiwi Dreams - Y ? (Danny's Dub)
I was only supposed to pick 5 records, but its not enough, I could on forever as there are so many amazing artists I’m missing! This is another record that I still play and its from an artists I could not leave off this list. Danny Tenaglia has inspired most DJs I know. I danced hard to his sets on the Space terrace in Ibiza so many times. Its was great to meet him and listen to him at Output this year. Legend.
