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.

How's Your Party?

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

Hot Chip and Disclosure

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

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.
