What’s In The Bag? – Jem Haynes

If you’ve partied on the white isle, chances are the name Jem Haynes is one that’s firmly cemented in your mind. Synonymous with Sundays at Space, Jem’s graced the decks alongside the likes of Derrick May, James Zabiela and Carl Craig to name a few. Now, after 9 years in the Discoteca, Jem’s returned home and heads up the Colour Series label. We’re lucky enough to catch up with him and hear his top 5 tracks of the moment.

“I’m currently on tour in Switzerland, last week I played a great festival in the Swiss Alps called Arosa Electronica. Here is my top 5 from the festival”

Introspectral – Andre Hommen
Andre recently played my Colour Series label party at Arosa Electronica.
He’s not only a fantastic producer but an excellent DJ and all round top man!
This record made so much sense at the top of a mountain on a bright sunny day.

 

Melos – Vincenzo, Mic Newman
An excellent feel good record that always makes people move.

 

Alcatraz – MJ Cole
Best known for his smooth garage vibes, MJ Cole rips all that up and rinses out an absolute dance floor banger!

 

Jem Haynes & SOAME – Streets
One of my own productions that has been getting a great dance floor reaction every time I play. (Out in the shops 28th March).

 

Depeche Mode – Only when I lose myself (Lexicon Avenue remix)
Played by my mate & production partner Ian Blevins as the last track of the Colour Series party. 7:30 in the morning, the sun rising over the mountains, this hit all the right spots!

 

Catch Jem headlining Bank of Switches on the 16th April here at Cafe 1001. Event info: http://bit.ly/1XNfcws
