Best of 2016 1 Nu DiscoBy Jon Nix On
The first of my best of mixes for 2016 - nu disco.
This was a tough list to compile. There were so many great tunes released this year, this could have been at least three hours long! The end result is a quite epic two hour mix.
It has three distinct parts. The first section is deeper, more melancholic and quite beautiful. The middle is "space disco" with some great trancy moments. Then the final part is more clubby with some of the big moments from the year.
It's bookended by tunes from my producer of the year - Deepjack. In fact the opening track "Make Me Cry" could be my tune of the year.
"New Times" by Geonis represents the best moment of the sax obsession that gripped many producers around the middle of the year. Just fantastic. Oh and the most classic sax dance track of all time is in there too.
Brilliant takes on trance producers like Armin, Richard Durand and erm... Gigi D'Agostino pop up around the middle. No Hopes works his magic on two of the biggest tracks on the year and I had to include the Imany remix as it reminds me of driving through Majorca.
To be honest there are just too many amazing tracks to go into detail, I'll be here all day! Just listen and as always, enjoy!
