What’s in the Bag? – Matt Hazelden

The eclectic selector picks 5 tracks he’s feeling right now..

Afefe Iku – Mirror Dance

Timeless and unique this afro Balearic track works with any crowd at any time in any venue. Simply amazing.


Luciano, Jaw – 7directions (Dennis Ferrer Remix)

Dennis Ferrer applies a groove heavy, percussive re work to this wonderful Luciano track. Made for the terrace.


Dele Sosimi Afrobeat Orchestra – Too Much Information

Try not moving to this afro soul explosion; Impossible.


Tim Engelhardt – Best Night In Cologne (Original Mix)

Deep, moody and melancholy but full of sunshine at the same time.


Sandrino, Frankey – Fornax (Original Mix)

Beautiful , hypnotic plodder. Nuevo Balearic at its best, Salinas beach style.


Matt Hazelden – The past 3 decades have seen Matt Hazelden really hone his craft, from humble beginnings running a record shop and promoting parties, to playing alongside the likes of Derrick May, Darren Emerson, Colin Dale and with Pete Tong at the legendary Milk Bar. Chuck in a few years working at dance music mainstays Wall of Sound, Deconstruction and Acid Jazz and it’s easy to see he’s kind of a big deal.. His feel-good sets are an eclectic mix of House, Groove, Soul, Balearic, Disco and Tech House and have led to radio slots on Ibiza Sonica, Es Vive Radio and Real House Radio. These days you can catch him putting on not-for-profit nights (see Route One) with the Ibiza Sonica DJs, Guy Gerber and Mendo to name but a few.
