To top off an incredible year of music, The Warehouse Project are taking us into 2017 with a ridiculous line up in venues across Manchester. SG Lewis is opening up on 23rd September alongside MIA, Mura Masa and a DJ set from Jungle. If you're thinking of heading, check their site.

Despite this freaky Indian summer, we've got to face up to the fact that it's nearly all over! Soon all that'll be left is the memories of being far too sweaty to be out in public. Luckily for you, SG Lewis was up for giving us a reminder of some of the best tracks of summer 2016. So sit back, take a listen and remember all the times you moaned that it was too hot...

Midland - Final Credits

Undoubtedly the record of the summer, this was played in sets absolutely everywhere, and is always the highlight of any set it's played in.

Kaytranada - Lite Spots

One of my favourites off his album, this song is the perfect soundtrack to driving in the sunshine on the way to a festival. Sounds great both in and out of the club, plus the video is DOPE.

Wbeeza - A116

Huge bit of funk leaning Techno, sounds incredible played out, and always gets an amazing reaction.

Bob Moses - Like It or Not (Joris Voorn Remix)

Big fan of Bob Moses, and this remix turns the original into a huge club track. Anyone who knows me knows I'm a sucker for dramatic piano chords.

Vince Staples - War Ready

This dropped really recently, but Vince is definitely one of my favourite new Hip Hop artists, and this track goes in. Production from James Blake too, which is always a good omen.

Recondite - Warg

First heard this track from the stream of Tale Of Us's set from Time Warp 2016 - something about it just has so much understated energy, and sounds ridiculous played out on a good sound system. Dark and beautiful.

Flume - Wall Fuck

Probably my favourite track off skin, the sound design on this track is CRAZY. I think I saw him describing it as the audio equivalent of a tear in time and space, which is pretty accurate.

Pedestrian - Pick Your Shots Clean

Really creative and unique track from Pedestrian, a seriously underrated producer.

Digitalism - Destination: Breakdown (Gerd Janson Dub)

Great bit of ethereal disco, love the 80's feel to it, and the euphoric build into the first breakdown.

SG Lewis - Yours

Because I'm a little self-promoting shitbag...
