My playlist – DJ Girish

A 20-YEAR career has seen DJ Girish spin the biggest tunes at the hottest venues around the world, which includes a record breaking 13-year residency in Kolkata, private events, as well as sharing the stage with A-list stars.

He primarily plays dance music of various genres that include hip hop, old school, house, EDM, Bollywood and bhangra. The musical maestro has also produced songs, runs a DJ school and hosts a popular weekly radio show, available globally.

Eastern Eye got the dynamite DJ and radio host to select 10 songs he loves.

Return Of The Mack by Mark Morrison: This track has that 1990’s originality and pure r’n’b vibes with Mark Morrison’s infectious vocal quality. It’s an all-time classic.

Killer (Papa Was A Rolling Stone) by George Michael: This record was produced way ahead of its targeted listeners. So pop yet so disco, dark yet so bright, because ofits infamous music video.

Lady by Modjo: At a boring party this track will make me get up and start dancing. It’s house meets disco song and brilliant.

Personal Jesus by Depeche Mode: I love the original version and the Eric Prydz remix as well. I like the Depeche Mode vocals with all the contemporary electronic rock elements and the Eric Prydz remix for all the dance floor bomber reasons.

Another Way by Paul Van Dyk: This was the first ever trance record that I bought, so it has to be on my list of favourites.

Killertone by Ernesto and Bastian: It’s the melody of this classic trance anthem that still plays in my mind and sets me up for clubbing, and when I see flying aeroplanes.

Rockafeller Skank by Fatboy Slim: This is the track that elevated my taste of music from hip hop and r’n’b to break beats. I still play this one.

One More Time by Daft Punk: Only a fan of Daft’s for this record and Around The World. It is house meets electro-pop from back in the days.

Circles by Post Malone: This has an enchanting groove and sing-along vocals on the chorus. I would love to cover this song on a guitar.

Hysteria by Def Leppard: This song reminds me of my growing up on rock music days. I bought at least three of their albums on cassettes only to hear the electronic drumming techniques of Rick Allen, their drummer with a single hand.
