Hot Chip’s Top Tips: Five of their favourite tunes

Joe Goddard
‘Set It Off’ by Strafe
This is an 80s electro record produced by Walter Gibbons. It has a great minor key chorus which inspired the bassline for ‘Take It In’ on the new album.

Al Doyle
‘Ofterschwang’ by Jurgen Paape
It’s a leftfield choice, but I think every party can take a little oompah brass techno; just imagine you’re marching with the dwarves. In Germany.

Owen Clarke
‘Sweet Emotion’ by Aerosmith
Best with ice cream on a treadmill, possibly crying.

Owen Clarke
‘Murder She Wrote’ by Chaka Demus & Pliers.
Best played at 2.35pm whilst Diagnosis Murder is on.

Alexis Taylor
‘Sinnerman’ by Nina Simone
This is a propulsive, urgent, kind of frightening record, with an incredible groove, which borders on the same territory as piano house, somehow.

Hot Chip and Disclosure

Quirky uber-danceable electronica and poignant electro ballads from the classy 'Over and Over' collective.

How's Your Party?

Funky, dubstep, bassline and more at this well-respected party, with resident Boom Monk Ben.

Musika Third Birthday

Musika celebrate in style as they decamp to the Corn Exchange to fit in the huge line-up of John Digweed, Timo Maas and Tim Green (Cocoon) tearing up the mainroom with house and electro. Sugarbeat lend a hand in room two with a DJ set from Hot Chip, Boy 8 Bit and Utah Saints.
