MAR­CUS MARR, THE MU­SIC “It’s eight min­utes of pure funk bliss. I’m eas­ily bored by longer songs, but The Mu­sic is the most en­gag­ing song I’ve ever heard. It’s a jour­ney. It’s one of those songs I come back to ev­ery month and fall in love with again and again.”

DEADMAU5, RAISE YOUR WEAPON (MADEON REMIX) “One of the first tracks that made me want to pro­duce. It’s in­tri­cate and com­plex, but at the same time ac­ces­si­ble. It’s an in­spi­ra­tional track for me, the kind of thing that I’ve al­ways what I wanted to make.”

DJ SNAKE FT BIPO­LAR SUN­SHINE, THE MID­DLE “The Mid­dle is the per­fect dance pop song in my opin­ion. These days it’s tough for me to to­tally fall in love with a song on first lis­ten, but I was in­stantly hooked on this DJ Snake mas­ter­piece.”

DIS­CLO­SURE FT SAM SMITH, LATCH “The com­bi­na­tion of Sam Smith’s falsetto and Dis­clo­sure’s stripped back pro­duc­tion is just per­fect. It in­spired a new chap­ter for me, want­ing to com­bine big pop hooks with house. This jam sound­tracked many, many sum­mer nights dur­ing my high school years.”

CALVIN HAR­RIS, THE GIRLS “This was the first dance song I ever heard. My cousin played it for me on his iPod when I was ten or eleven on a fam­ily hol­i­day. Af­ter lis­ten­ing to the whole I Cre­ated Disco al­bum, I started to un­der­stand dance mu­sic.”
