“I had an awesome time picking the tracks, it took me back in time for a while, remembering the whole process – hearing it for the first time, finding out about and exploring new sounds. I was always a kinda ‘music digger’, spending hours every day.

It was hard to limit myself to only 10 tracks, but I guess these ones were and still are the most significant for me in a certain way” – GIGEE

1. Paul Kalkbrenner – Dockyard (B Seite)

“Maestro Paul… he is the most influential one regarding my music development without any doubt. I fell in love with his music many many years ago and since then, it is why I turned from electro house to techno. The layering and progression is everything. It was hard to pick my favorite one from Paul’s collection but ‘Dockyar’d (b side) is really special for me”. 

2. Vitalic – Stamina

“Another massive producer and his incredible energy that I encountered. You just cannot stand still without moving your body to this one. I still remember one of his first shows in Warsaw, amazing experience.” 

The Bloody Beetroots – We are from Venice 

“I started my DJ journey with a huge electro house influence. The Bloody Beetroots was one of my favorite collectives in those days. I was diving in their basslines like crazy”. 

4. Claude Debussy – Suite Bergamasque – Clair de Lune

“I always liked classical music and its tremendous piano compositions. It got me inspired every time as there is always a story behind it.  Every time I listen to it – I catch & feel something different”. 

5. Dido – Thank you

Dido was one of my first idols ever, I still have her debut album ‘No Angel’ and I still go back to her songs and lyrics. I love them. Her songs helped me through tough times so often. And that angelic voice… pure class”. 

6. Avicii – Wake Me Up

“I admired Tim so much, both on the DJ and production side. Such a pure talent, such a unique style… I was devastated when I heard about his passing away. I just couldn’t believe it”. 

7. Jamie Woon – Street

“That’s my melancholic nature saying hi 😉 On repeat any time of the day regardless of how I feel, because he sets the mood”. 

8. Diplo as Major Lazer ft. The Partysquad – Original Don

“Partyyyyy makerrrr. This man (Diplo) is on fire, responsible for many awesome pieces of music. Been following him since my early teens”.

9. GugGus – Arabian Horse

“This track has so much going on, it grabs you at the very beginning and has so many characteristic sounds.  The whole album is just brilliant”. 

10. Whilk & Misky – Clap Your Hands (Solomun Remix)

“Travelling back in time, when I was so young and so in love, this one was our favorite. It gives us faith and hope that we will stay like this forever… but guess what? (laughter)…”
