1) George Benson – El Barrio (Maw Remix)
I was searching for some Maw tracks and just found this old one and i remembered i heard it like 5 times on repeat because i was trying to really understand it.
2) Quentin Harris ft Cordell Mc Clary – Traveling
The beat, the melody, the vocal simply perfect! I don’t know how many times I’ve played this track, I feel like it was me who did it. I love it!
3) Jerome Sydenham & Joe Claussell – Je Ka Jo
The first time I heard this one was a long time ago and I just started thinking I need to make my own tracks because its very inspirational. Theres no words to describe this journey the way it grows and runs. It puts me and the crowd crazy.
4) Salif Keita – Moussoulou (Yoruba Soul Mix)
The first time i heard this one i just fell in love. In my opinion Osunlade is one of the best house producers in the world. He puts so much love & energy on his tracks.
5) Minister De La Funk Feat. Jocelyn Brown – Believe (Ministers Vocal Mix)
It was the first track i heard from my inspiration Mr Erick Morillo, I was starting my career and just felt in love with it. Since then till now its one of the tracks that makes me “Believe” i can be someone in this industry.
