Spotify playlist: 50 overlooked classics that deliver dancefloor magic

Mixmag’s Overlooked Classics playlist is back with another fresh update, diving deep into the history of dance music to uncover the gems that should never be forgotten.

For this recent update we’re focusing on cosmic house with an essence of funk and class. Leading off is the stripped back sonic excursion by Steve Bug remixing Sven Väth’s ‘Discophon’. Originally released in 1999, Sven’s quirky and squelching rave tune is transformed by Steve Bug who strips back the original to reveal a bassy, soothing and rhythmic jam primed for an after hours session. Certainly not to be overlooked.

Also included is a jacking dancefloor bomb by Derrick Carter remixing Chez Damier, a bouncing house groove by Joey Youngman, a rare disco-infused ballad from the early days of Simian Mobile Disco, a deep, soulful and infecctious low-slung house cut by Manuel Tur and DPlay, plus loads more.

These timeless treasures join the stacked playlist that features material by Sascha Funke, Mr. G, Paul Woolford, Âme, John Tejada and other absolute classics from the early days of dance music’s evolution.
