Karl Guest’s bi-weekly feature ‘The GuestList’ is back… Every two weeks we ask Karl to pick 10 of his favourite and upcoming releases, written by Karl Guest himself.
This edition of ‘The Guest List’ is a rather special one as Karl looks back over the last year and picks out his top 20 tracks of 2018.
Karl’s taste spans across a number of genres and he is constantly altering his style from gig to gig, similarly to what he chooses to listen to – he’s had a busy year championing nights all over Dublin and at festivals all over the country, so we’re glad we could catch him to share his versatile taste with all of us.
As expected, this list is a mixed bag of styles and sounds with everything from Electro, Italo, House, Breakbeat, Techno and more all being included.
Without further adieu, in no particular order, Karl’s picks of 2018…
1. Duke Boara – Into The Blue
2. Mix & Fairbanks – Bee Side
3. Fruit – Italo Island
4. Brame & Hamo – Limewire
5. Housemates – Soul Value (Jersey Groove)
6. Jovonn – Show U Love (DJ Deep Edit)
7. Bobby Cazanova – Make U Mine
8. The Donna Smith Experience – Live With Me
