Kissdafunk is one of the legendary house music nights born out of the North of the UK (formed by Glyn Tolley and DJ Rob Tissera), which over the years helped carve the scene and pave the way for an unprecedented amount of DJs and producers. It makes perfect sense then for them to start a compilation series reflecting the past whilst looking ahead to the future, and an exciting one it is too. Here we have just shy of 40 full length tracks, for a mere L8.99 and packed full of dance-floor dynamite, with; Will Gold, My Digital Enemy, Carl Cox, The Squatters, Paul Morrell, and Kryder being just a handful of the talent on offer... Get stuck right in!!

The Amsterdam Dance Event is celebrated as the most successful industry gathering in electronic music. It's fitting, then, that this collection should be successful. Covering the more upfront, in-your-face styles, each of the cuts on offer here should be filed under 'peaktime bangers'. Take Schuhmacher's remix of Tobie Allen... If the pummelling tech disco groove of "Reach Out & Change" doesn't elevate your crowd to oblivion then nothing will. The same can be said for the retro vocal house/dubstep fusion of "Sanctuary Of Love" by The Squatters and Rob Tissera. Or the 13 other tracks on offer for that matter. The term 'anthem' should never be taken lightly.
