Jay Faleye picks his Top 5 tracks for sundown sets

With nearly 20 releases to date, firstly on MC Shortston's Heavyweight Recordings and, since 2008, on Simon 'Bassline' Smith's Technique Recordings and Technique sub-label Worlwide Audio Recordings, the name Tantrum Desire should be very familiar to drum & bass lovers. Tantrum Desire remixes have also graced releases by heavy hitting acts from beyond the D&B scene, such as The Wideboys, Rusko, Skrillex, The Wanted and Utah Saints.

Tantrum Desire's most recent venture on Technique is a track called Tesoro, which features on the Technique Summer 2016 compilation that dropped last week. And to mark that fact, here Tantrum Desire main man Jay Faleye has picked his Top 5 tracks for a sundown set. Take it away, Jay...

Drumsound & Bassline Smith - Rise Of The Black Panther

"Every time I hear the brass elements on this track, the Pink (or black!) Panther pops up in my mind, so it's definitely the right title! This is just such a great track, and it's fun to mix as well."


Tantrum Desire - Tesoro

"I went for a minimal feel on this one, with a bit of roughness around the edges, giving it a balanced setting for the summer."


Document One - Klaxon

"Definitely feeling the bounce on this tune! Again, it's a great track to mix with, but then the Doc One guys are always bringing quality music."


J Majik & 78 Degrees - Day I Left

"Wicked vibe on this one - I can just imagine this setting the scene perfectly for a summer pool party."


Brookes Brothers ft Danny Byrd - Climb High

"Everything in this track fits together so well, it definitely gives you that 'flying high' feeling. Love it!"


Technique Summer 2016 is out now on Technique Recordings
