About the selections, the pair have to say: “We really wanted to select tracks that have had an impact us before and throughout our career, whether on a musical or personal level. Here are some of the tracks (and people) that have been influential to the Black Girl / White Girl sound and vibe that you hear today.”
Funky Fat - Jealousy (Original Mix) [Hot Creations]
A timeless track released on Hot Creations, it’s got such a sexy vibe. It’s inspiring in how it’s sounds super carefree, but at the same time it’s so well produced. It doesn’t take itself too seriously and we dig that a lot.
Kim Ann Foxman - Let Me Be The One (Catz N' Dogz Remix) [Heidi Presents Jackathon Jams]
We really love Catz ‘N Dogz, and we really, really love this remix! Something that’s awesome about Catz ‘N Dogz is that they’re absolutely not afraid to get weird, we love that. Plus, the energy here is super contagious and that bassline, it just makes you want to move.
Nina Kraviz - Ghetto Kraviz (Original Mix) [Rekids]
One of the biggest, hottest earworms in the history of earworms (probably)! It works in any set, and we feel it’s a massive modern classic for us. Not your regular cup of techno, this one.
Tiga vs Boys Noize - 100 (The Martinez Brothers Keep It 100 Mix) [Turbo Recordings]
This one’s very minimal in terms of elements, but every single one works and grooves with the other. The Martinez Brothers took the original into an unexpected direction and the end result is just a magnificently trippy, mind bending gem.
wAFF - Puke It Up (Original Mix) [Hottrax]
We love the percussions on this one, and the crazy synth that pops up in the beginning is EVERYTHING. It raises the energy on the dancefloor and it’s a great tool to flip the mood when you’re DJing too.
Sidney Charles - Wax Digger ‘88 (Original Mix) [Moda Black]
Loving the old skool vibes this track has, with those classic synths and melody lines. It just makes sense, and sounds current but with a sassy throwback vibe.
Tom Flynn - Mistress Chantelle (Original Mix) [Hot Creations]
Everything is right on this one! The weird vocals, that bassline, the groove, the hooks… It’s everything we love in one amazing piece of music.
Miss Kittin - Girlz (Original Mix) [Heidi Presents Jackathon Jams]
Great percussion here, we absolutely love the gritty, dirty warehouse vibe. Add to that the superb Miss Kittin touch... A true anthem and weapon for your sets.
DJ Deeon - House-O-Matic [Numbers]
Groove, groove, groove! This track raises the energy levels to new heights. DJ Deeon’s arranging and mixing skills really make the track shine here. The man’s definitely an inspiration to us.
dOP - Close Up (Louisahhh! Remix) [Circus Company]
A timeless track, released only about 4 years ago… It sounds like it was made with tons of passion. Louisahhh! took the track to a different dimension by adding her own vocals to it, and we rate that a lot. Creativity is always key.
