Tried & Tested

Just because summer never really happened this year doesn't mean we can't elect a seasonal anthem. Recently, we asked five of the city's best DJs to nominate their candidates.

Kevin Shiu
Progressive Entertainment

Yvan & Dan Daniel "Enjoy the Silence"
"This is a remake of the Depeche Mode song–it's cheese, but everyone knows the words and they always sing along."

Erik Devereux
Salon des Bourgeoisies, Saturdays, at the Royal Unicorn

Bonde do Role "Gasolina (Fake Blood Remix)"
"Like Harry Potter entering the great hall–the airhorns before the drop summon all wizards and majesties to riot the dance."

Lady Eve
Art of Beatz , Thursdays at midnight on CFRO 102.7 FM

Bjí¶rk "Innocence (Ghostigital Untouchable Innocence Still Amazes Fearless Remix)"
"As if this song could get any more crunk, another Icelandic hand touches the fire to show us there's more to bass than frequency alone."

Alison Barth
Formerly of Focus Fridays at the Lotus Sound Lounge

Elektrochemie "Caiti"
"Sultry, melodic vocals and interesting kick-drum patterns lace this low-slung dark groove. It's great for establishing your mood early on."

Rico Uno
Higher Ground, Tuesdays at Heist (Century House)
Get Up Get Down, Fridays at Shine

Stevie Wonder "All I Do (U-Tern Disco Edit)"
"This a midtempo Motown and disco remix that gets all them refined ladies moving their hips like they're rolling around on a cloud of baby kittens."
