Dizzy Vs. The Designer's Republic
I remember MSTRKRFT's follow up to the classic The Looks getting panned a lot on release. Must've done a number on the lads 'cos that's that last LP we've had from them. Granted Fist Of God isn't as solid as it's predecessor, but I'll be damned if it doesn't have a sweet opening track.

Felix was a longstay in our circles, I'd use him alongside Daft Punk's Discovery to introduce people to house with 2001's excellent electoclash infused LP Kittenz & Thee Glitz. As above, this is a tune from the follow up to that album, but unlike the 'KRFT, this one's one of Felix's more popular tunes.

And to finish, Alive 2007. I don't even need to say much here, it's probably one of the best live albums ever and it captures the vibe brilliantly. Would've liked to hear more studio stuff from them that sounded like this, but I suppose they owed disco a lot after the success of Discovery so I can't blame 'em.
