This is a sound that I am totally in love with at the moment and I had so many tunes for this I could have done two mixes. In fact, I may do a companion terrace or "BBQ house" mix to this one.

Focusing on this mix first, this is one for the dancefloor from the off. Mark Lower's "The Chase" has a super-funky bassline and a sexy vocal to set the tone. Also early on is a gorgeous Emili Sandé remix.

There are plenty of crowd pleasing vocals, from White Stripes to Duke Dumont, Talking Heads to Tiësto. Oh and the cheekiest of ABBA covers, a "peak sax" moment from Love Vibes and the most uplifting use of glockenspiel since Schiller.

I close the mix with a great example of how pitching up a track (a lot) can transform it. The original tempo of Godlips was 100 BPM and it sounded pretty pedestrian, add 22 BPM and it is a euphoric beauty.
