Sonny Wharton - 5 Trax That Rock My Sets

Originally from Wales and now based in the UK, Wharton Records boss Sonny Wharton has firmly established himself as one of the brightest prospects to emerge in recent years. Since the start of his DJ Career, he’s had high profile slots at Amnesia, Space, Pacha, Ministry Of Sound and a weekly residency at the infamous Manumission to name a few. And as for is production outlet on labels like Skint Records, Size, Toolroom, Spinnin and Material, house music heavyweights Pete Tong, Armand Van Helden, Steve Angello, Roger Sanchez and most notably, Fatboy Slim have all been on board with his music.

With his new release Dazed & Confused out on Traxsource & doing well in the clubs, Sonny gives us insight into a selection of tracks causing damage in his recent club sets.


1) Sonny Wharton – Dazed & Confused [Whartone]

This was the first time I played out Dazed & Confused so was a good chance to see if it worked as well as id hoped – the reaction i got when it dropped solved that question and cemented my choice to release it asap on the label.

2) Deetron – Starblazer [Rejected]

This is one of those tracks that has never really left my box since it came out – a timeless piece of house music that always delivers. I started my set with this and it really set the tone for what followed. Good vibes through and through!


3) Marco Lys – Bebop [Toolroom]

There’s rarely a set that goes by where I don’t play something from Marco – he consistently delivers and his music always works great on the floor.


4) Thomas Schumacer – Hush (Catz N Dogs Remix) [Pets Recordings]

This track just goes off pure & simple – no real explanation needed its just a solid house stomper from start to finish!


5) Sonny Wharton – Pandemonium [Skint]

I’m still over the moon to the reaction I get when this drops – its made with the dance floor in mind and always seems to work. I felt really humbled when I see the reaction this got that night – thanks to everyone that came and partied with us!
