The Lockdown Series is our latest series in which we invite some friends of ours to choose 10 tracks they feel are essential listening to get you through this lockdown and isolation period.
We’ll be bringing you the picks of some local and international names which will be sure to make your quarantine a little bit easier. These songs selected by the artists will be both a representation of what they play and what they’ll be listening to in their downtime during lockdown, a deeper dive into the minds and tastes of the DJs you love.
Up next on the series is house and disco icon, Dan Shake. The Englishman has cemented his place as one of the most influential and uplifting artists of recent years, with tracks such as 3am Jazz Club and Claudia’s Trip to the more recent Freak and Daisy’s Dance, which have all found a home on the dance floor, Dan’s discography is packed full of feel good anthems. From his regarded Sugar Mountain Boiler Room in 2018, to an absolutely energising and action packed closing set at last year’s Yurt City Festival, Dan has remained one of our favourite DJ’s & producers of the last few years.
