10 Tracks That Defined ANTS

Friday, May 5, 2023

As we prepare to fire the starting pistol on ANTS 10 YEARS STRONG, let’s take a look at 10 of the tracks that helped define a decade of ANTS

Thick Dick - “Welcome to the Jungle” (Andrea Oliva Remix)

An iconic ANTS anthem from an artist who has been with The Colony since day one. The infectious bassline, propulsive percussion and undeniable groove make this a dANTSfloor destroyer.

Solardo - “Big Talk”

Manchester’s party-starters-in-chief have been firm favourites at ANTS since they debuted, with many of their classic productions like “Move Your Body” and “XTC” becoming instant ANTS anthems. As we look to the future of ANTS, we predict “Big Talk” with Idris Elba will have one of the biggest impacts of the summer.

Chelina Manuhutu - “Amsterdam Rave”

ANTS 10 YEARS STRONG resident Chelina is at the forefront of the new wave of underground ANTS sounds. Her latest release, “Amsterdam Rave”, never fails to whip The Colony into a frenzy.

Francisco Allendes & Matthias Tanzmann - “Disco Mike”

Resident and ANTS RADIO SHOW host Francisco knows the ANTS sound inside out. Each week he shares the freshest underground sounds with The Colony around the globe. “Disco Mike”, his collab with ANTS regular Matthias Tanzmann, is an iconic ANTS favourite.

B Beat Girls - “For The Same Man” (Nic Fanciulli Remix)

This remix of the 1983 classic electro record by Nic Fanciulli is the perfect fit for an ANTS event. A classic foundation brought right up to date by the immense skill of our supremely talented resident.

Vintage Culture - “Tina”

Our superstar resident Vintage Culture has made huge hits across the world. With so much incredible music to choose from, we think “Tina” and its dancefloor propulsion fits perfectly on the dANTSfloor.

Eelke Kleijn - “Transmission" (Joris Voorn Remix)

Joris Voorn is another long-term ANTS associate who has been a fixture at ANTS events since the very early days. His emotional take on underground house and techno is the perfect soundtrack to an ANTS party, and this stunning remix of Eelke Kleijn is a distilled example of the Joris Voorn sound.

Cloonee & Wade - “Mi Amor”

Two pillars of the underground sound and regulars at ANTS events across the world. “Mi Amor” caused a storm on the dANTSfloor when it first came out and has been a crowd favourite at ANTS ever since.

Celeda - “Music Is The Answer (Dancin’ And Prancin’)” (Danny Tenaglia Remix)

Not only an iconic anthem, but a message that is synonymous with ANTS. Music is the ANTSer neatly sums up the ANTS worldview. It’s the music that unites The Colony across the planet.

Paul Woolford - “Mother & Child”

The sound of the end of the Invasion! When Andrea Oliva finished his set at the ANTS Invasion Closing Party last summer, it was an emotional moment that will live long in the hearts and minds of The Colony.
