DILBY is an artist that continues to set fire to my inbox.

We caught up with the prolific producer at the end of last year for a great chat and he recorded an amazing mix for The Night Bazaar Sessions, just as this website went gangbusters following the launch of The Night Bazaar weekly column in The Sun newspaper.


Read the interview with Dilby HERE and we’ve posted the mix again below for you.

Dilby promised he would come back to us with a playlist of music he loves and true to his word he’s compiled a playlist of super cool favourites and there are some amazing tracks in there. Listen to the music below and read what Dilby had to say about each track.

Dilby – The Station feat. DNCN [8bit Records]

“The Station is a track from my recent EP on Gorge and Nick Curly’s label 8bit. DNCN is a super talented vocalist and has worked with the likes of Maceo Plex and Riva Starr to name a few. The track has been a standout in my sets since we wrote it at the start of summer 2023. I’m very proud of this one!”



Audiojack – Lost Inside [Knee Deep In Sound]

“Lost Inside is an absolute vibe and such a fun track to play. I was absolutely rinsing this on my recent tour in Australia and New Zealand. Audiojack have such a unique sound and I just love the way they have reinterpreted classic house music. Big respect.”



Tom Evans, Bruno Blanc, Monochrome – Play It Twice (Dilby Remix) [Valiant]

“It was an absolute pleasure to remix this record. The original has such a cool, classic style to it and I enjoyed every second of working on the project. It’s made quite a splash, which is always nice to see. It’s been sitting on the Deep House Top 10 on Beatport and reached number 5 in the ARIA Club Charts (Australia’s version of Billboard).”



Emanuel Satie & DJ T. – The Feeling [Diynamic]

“This is such a beast of a track which brings so much good energy to the dancefloor. It has a very retro feel but it’s masterfully constructed and given Solomun’s seal of approval, being released on his label Diynamic. Perfect summer festival sounds!”



Howling – Lover (Jennifer Cardini & Damon Jee Remix) – [Counter Records]

For me this is one of those songs that make the hairs on the back of my neck tingle. It’s very stripped back but somehow commands a lot of attention with its melancholic power and beauty. It was love at first listen.

Jamie Stevens & Anthony Pappa – Here We Go [Selador]

“This track just ticks all the boxes for me. It has a feel very akin to the music that got me into DJing and writing house records but is expertly crafted to sound bang up to date. As a producer I can often listen to a song and have a pretty good understanding of how it’s been constructed but this track has so many layers and details which have all been meticulously tweaked to perfection. It’s an absolute masterclass!”



Jerome Sydenham & Dennis Ferrer – Sandcastles (Pete Heller Re-Edit) [Ibadan Records]

“Pete Heller is undoubtedly best known for his timeless hit Big Love. But he is also one of the most prolific and influential producers of the last 25 years and did everything from filtered disco to tribal to deep house and back again. I just love the depth and musicality he brings to this record and I consider it a timeless classic.”



Silicone Soul – Chic-O-Laa (H-Foundation Remix) [Soma Records]

“H-Foundation (aka Hipp-E & Halo Varga) reworked Silicone Soul’s disco-sampling house  record into a twisted, driving, tribal workout which destroyed many a dancefloor around 2000 when it was released. In all honesty this track is here to represent the sound I first fell in love with and could just as easily be a track from Peace Division, John Creamer & Stephane K, Oscar G & Ralph Falcon, Joeski, Chris Lum or countless others. It feels and sounds like home!”

Crazy P – Give It Up ( Laid Mix ) [Paper Recordings]

“I just love this funky, loopy, trippy, space-disco vibe of this record. Crazy P are such a cool live act and the original is actually a very cool soulful house song. Laid who did the remix is actually an alias of Stockholm’s Zoo Brazil, one of my favourite artists to this day. I still play this as a closing track in my sets from time to time.”



Echomen – Substance [Forensic Records]

“This is an absolute classic in my opinion and a record that still inspires me now. Echomen are a British duo who also released as Mooncat and were also part of influential groups including Lexicon Avenue, Little Green Men and Happy Clappers. I would consider Echomen a direct precursor to my sound and a constant point of reference for my work in the studio.”
