Resident Picks

Patrick Hagenaar

Patrick Hagenaar gives us his top five piano house records.
 

Every week we ask one of our residents to choose a selection of tracks following a theme. This week, after the fantastic news that Secondcity's "I Wanna Feel" has topped the UK Singles Chart in it's first week of release, we asked out resident DJ and "I Wanna Feel" remixer, Patrick Hagenaar, to give us his favourite piano house tracks. Over to you, Patrick!


Eric Prydz - "Pjanoo"


Patrick: First Let me say, it was really hard to pick only 5 – there are soooooooooooo many great piano house tracks out there, but if we’re talking about the biggest piano house in the noughties, there is only one real contender. Full stop.


Alison Limerick – "Where Love Lives"

I remember hearing this on a mixtape back in 1991 – it made a big impression on me as a kid – such a sing-a-long song!

 

David Morales ft The Face – "Needin’ U"

This track to me really nails the sound of 1998 when disco house started to become really big. A huge Miami/Ibiza anthem!


F.P.I. Project – "Everybody All Over the world"

The first ever track I produced was with my buddy Alistair Albrecht called "What Would We Do" – a huge club anthem in 2008, which launched our career as producers. This track definitely inspired us.


Liquid – "Sweet Harmony"

As a 10 year old, I was well into my house and techno, but I didn’t mind a bit of hardcore rave. This tune is a good example of what inspired current producers like Chase & Status and Subfocus to make tracks like "Blind Faith" & "Turn Back Time".
