The countdowns of 2014 aren’t quite over yet. On top of our top 10 full premieres, we have another set of ear candy in store for you. Last year was crazy good in terms of all the exclusive mixes we got to host. But which ones did you listen to the most? It’s time to wrap up 2014 by counting down the top 10 DHA mixes!
On our number 10 spot are South London newcomers Disciples, coming with a distinct party mix full of surprises at every corner. Mixing, chopping and blending everything from nu disco to techno, Disciples may very well enjoy a breakout 2015. You heard it here first!
The pride of Valencia is without a doubt one of the hottest newcomers on the global electronic scene. As you may have noticed, señor Imbernon ranked high also on our top 10 full premieres list earlier this week. With releases on the likes of Get Physical, Diynamic, Noir Music, and Culprit, as well as fans with such names as Ricardo Villalobos, Agoria and Marco Carola, the future looks bright for this energetic DJ.
Amsterdam’s own Illesnoise‘s dreamy sounds are about as eclectic as one can get while keeping grounded in the dance floor hypnotizing deep house grooves DHA love’s so much. A force behind the decks, in both talent and beauty, Illesnoise emotional DJ sets are well represented in this upbeat mix.
With roots in Switzerland and South Africa, this true global citizens’ eclectic background is represented in her diverse musical tastes. Giving us a mix seemingly uncategorizable, one thing clearly emanates when pressing play on this gem by Nora En Pure: Passion!
Hot Creation’s own Miguel Campbell gave us an autumn mix chock full of that sexy, smooth, groovy house the world has become accustomed to from the renowned label. Here, the Leedsman spans the house music gamut with tracks from Kolombo, Inland Knights and, of course, the man himself.
Hamburg’s Oliver Schories has dabbled in a variety of electronic sounds from D&B to New Rave, ultimately settling into his own specific groove. Versatile, infused with techno, yet faithful to the deeper side of things, Oliver’s mix holds the key to warming up those cold winter nights. No wonder it made it to the top 5.
Perfect for the pre-party (or just zoning out from the comfort of your own couch), Holosound’s electro-tinged tech house can easily transport listeners to the late night New York warehouses where he’s made his name. With nearly two hours in the mix, the immersive, seductive result represents a certain urban underground with warmth and flavor.
Going all the way back to February, veritable Dutch superstar Karmon provides our next mix, especially anticipating 2014’s Wonderland Festival edition. A respected member of Solomun’s Diynamic family, Karmon really brings the d-e-e-p with this glitchy yet soulful mix.
With this mix, Shadow Child provides nothing less than an electronic education! Spanning garage to house with a few classics thrown in for good measure, this is a party mix through and through. Expect tracks from the likes of Riva Starr, Joeski, Future Sound of London, as well as the man himself.
Our most played mix of the year comes from the Berlin veteran Oliver Koletzki. The Stil Vor Talent boss laid down 60 minutes of deep funkiness for us back in April which, since then, has racked up over half a million plays. Label Boss, Globe Trotting DJ, House Aficionado, and all around dance music ambassador; Oliver Koletzki is the real house music deal.
