AKW
[PUSH]

Matthew Dekay and Lee Burridge
Fur Die Liebe
[All Day I Dream]
A duo who’ve produced some forward-thinking dancefloor material, and the strings on this track get me every time.

Ry Cumin & Frank Wiedermann
Howling (Âme Remix)
[Innervisions]
I don’t usually go for big vocal tracks, but there’s something quite stirring about this guy’s singing – plus the track comes to a pretty powerful conclusion.

Barnt
Geffen
[Cómeme]
It was always fun watching the crowd when dropping this weird little number. Geffen is really nothing more than a beat and a fun little octave-driven synth line, but it drove people crazy every single time.

Maetrik
The Poem
[Ellum Audio]
I still prefer the stuff Eric Estornel produces as Maetrik over his Maceo Plex guise, and this track really sums up why: rib-shaking beats and simple but devastating basslines. Massive.

Ian Pooley
CompuRhythm (Dixon 4/4 Treatment)
[Innervisions]
Have such good memories of catching Dixon at Barcelona in Sonar this year, and he’s fast become one of my favourites. This is his best remix yet, maybe after the 2011 Singing rerubs.

“We don’t care whether you’ve been naughty or nice – we’ve just lined up a night of quality house and techno as a special Christmas present for everyone who likes their music a bit deep and dirty.

On the decks that night will be PUSH co-founders Frankie Lam and Lukas, who have had a huge year hosting events such as the massive Ozone Sky Party series and various PUSH parties around town. They’ll be joined by other DJs who have also had quite an impact in 2012 such as DJ Anthony2 (of Volar/Plan B), Ocean Lam and Casey Anderson (of the booming Humdrum crew), and DJ A-Pak.

KEE would like to wish a very happy Christmas to everyone who’s supported us this year – and also extend an invitation to you all to come and share a bit of festive cheer with us at Kee this Christmas Eve.”
