Sunta is a seasoned DJ who has played at parties all over the world from Istanbul to Aiya Napa, she's taken her eclectic pick of the best rock, indie, pop and alternative anthems to a host of events and UK venues.
The Strokes > New York City Cops
Kicking off this party with a guaranteed indie disco floor filler which always make me ‘turn around’.
The Chemical Brothers > Galvanise
I love so many of the Chem’s collaborations but this track with Q-Tip never fails to give me goose bumps.
Primal Scream > Country Girl
Primal Scream have such an incredibly diverse back catalogue. Riot City Blues is an album I find myself returning to time and again and this is a stomper.
The Raconteurs > Salute Your Solution
Hooray! The Raconteurs are back! A group of some of the best musicians you’ll find and this is a classic.
Interpol > Slowhands
Brooding and dark yet energetic and bright – There’s so much going on in this track and it has an iconic video.
Courtney Barnett > Pedestrian At Best
Somehow Courtney manages to make the most normal situation sound like a beautiful complex poem. Plus she rocks.
Viagra Boys > Sports
The energy these guys have is nuts – watching them play live is like being stood in front of an industrial fan. Just awesome.
Run The Jewels > Run The Jewels
Biting social commentary with a kick ass beat. RTJ mean business and you cannot ignore them.
Christine and The Queens > Christine
Effortlessly cool and occupying a really interesting space in music – plus the video for this track is mesmerising.
Idles > I'm Scum
Another live band you just can’t ignore – their gigs are like a new kind of congregation of acceptance and togetherness with a punk kick.
Yonaka > Fired Up
I first heard these guys on Radio X as one of our Great Expectation and I’m a big fan of Theresa’s voice –their session on the website is worth seeking out.
First Aid Kit > Emmylou
My appreciation for country music has grown recently and I love how this track is like a love letter to some of the greats of the genre.
Bon Iver > Towers
Just beautiful. Blissful, full of love and a musical safe place.
Mac DeMarco > Salad Days
This just makes me so happy and warmly nostalgic for the slacker rock I loved in my teens.
Spiritualized > Come Together
This is one of those tracks which pulls you in and builds and builds until you suddenly realise you’ve been holding your breath because it’s all too dramatic, like an episode of Line of Duty!
