Selected Cuts: Detlef
Always in top form with his infectious energy fuelled by a love and passion for producing and mixing electronic music, Greek native Alex Georgiadis aka Detlef has soared into the electronic world and dutifully earned the status as a knowledgeable selector and innovative producer in the last few years.
Making his mark on UK soil once again, Detlef returns to Egg LDN with his trusty B2B accomplice Latmun for a Main Room takeover of chunky-house and uplifting techno this Friday. Sharing a whopping fifteen selected cuts with us ahead of the gig, Georgiadis looks back at a variety of tracks which touch on fond memories of London, his current favourite tunes to play on any given dance floor and an array of sounds from emerging artists considered ‘ones to watch’ in the electronic industry.
Top 5 favourite tracks to play at the moment:
Rydim vs DJ Funk - Ghetto Booty (Jesse Perez’s Cutler Ridge Booτy mix)
I really love Jesse’s grooves in general and he kept his style in this remix which is straight fire!
The Deepshakerz - What To Want To Get (Original Mix)
Great track with a happy vibe and some tribal beats that could get anyone moving in a club.
Valentino Khan & Sean Paul - Gold (Detlef Dub mix)
This is my latest remix for Valentino & Sean Paul and I got really excited when I played for the first time because when people heard the break with Sean Paul’s vocals I got an amazing reaction.

Pirupa - Party Non Stop (Shaf Huse Remix)
I really love Shaf Huse’s beats and basslines. Its something really fresh and different from the rest but his music works so nicely in every set. this one is one of my favorite works he is done so far. The way he is building up the track and the selection of vocals and effects is just brilliant.

It was about that era when I visited London for the first time and this song was big so it brings me London memories.
