He's remixed Laurent Garnier, Photek, and Deadmau5, and last year he set up his very own imprint 2Swords, and now London producer Copy Paste Soul has dropped a brand new single on Shir Khan's much-loved house label, Exploited. To celebrate the release, that was premiered by BBC Radio 1 selector Annie Mac last month, we sat down with Copy Paste Soul, to find out the top five Exploited releases currently filling his record bag.
Compuphonic 'O Cypres'
"Gorgeous deep music on this one! The chords progression and soft sounding but rolling beats make this a brilliant piece of intelligent deep house!"
Copy Paste Soul 'People On The Street'
"OK so I chose one of mine! But this was a significant record for me then. It has lots of funk and it’s me on that silly vocal! I remember playing this on the Terrace at Space….that was an amazing feeling!"
Claptone 'Another Night'
"The mighty Claptone! An Exploited staple, this for me is one of the best. Love the disco analogue feel of the stabs. Always a floor filler!"
Copy Paste Soul 'Let It Go'
"This was a real fusion record for me. It tiptoes across house and garage and has a very UK sound to it. It’s bouncy but kinda deep too. Vibes!"
Jad & The Ladyboy 'The Bill Collector'
"Perfect early night house — so smooth. Classic sounds and full of class. Have used this a lot when warming up!"
