Montreal up-and-comer Mandiz is a DJ who likes the bass down low. Her sets favor a booty bass and G-house sound that she was first turned onto by London duo Amine Edge & DANCE, whose CUFF label continues to turn out the kind of bumping, sleazy productions she’s into. In addition to CUFF, Mandiz is also a devotee of Dirtybird, another label committed to bottom-heavy house music.
This Friday, January 29, Mandiz is set to play Montreal’s Igloofest festival on a stage lineup presented by Beatport. She’s in exceptional company, too, warming up for Canadian DJ-producer Heidi (who also describes her sound as “booty shaking”) and Detroit techno trailblazer Carl Craig. After a well-received set at Montreal’s Piknic Électronik last summer, she’s itching to get on the Igloofest stage. Ahead of the weekend, we asked Mandiz to share 10 of her favorite tracks for making a dancefloor shake.
ENNIO – “Go Insane”
“How can anyone not jam to this track? I am a huge sucker for heavy basslines. This track is a true ‘booty shaker’ on the dancefloor.”
Redlight – “Gold Teeth”
“This track has so much dirt, you might just need a shower after listening to it. The catchy vocals and bumping bassline will have you grooving in no time. I usually drop this at the peak time of my set.”
Justin Martin & Ardalan feat. PartyPatty – “Function”
“The buildup on this one is unreal. This duo is unstoppable whether on Snapchat or on the dancefloor. How about that wobble noise? Too sick! I also like to shake my ass, PartyPatty. Don’t we all?”
Vintage Culture feat. TK Wonder – “Van Gogh”
“This song actually made me want to find the Van Gogh Museum when I was in Amsterdam. I literally vogued on my way there. The raspiness in her voice makes this track absolute ammunition on the dancefloor.”
Volac – “Drug Dealer”
“You just know from the sirens at the beginning that this track will be dope. I absolutely love its vibe and groove on the dancefloor. Cheesy pickup lines never sounded so good.”
Dansson & Marlon Hoffstadt – “Shake”
“This track is all about having a good time. It’s perfect to get you pumped for a fun night out. You instantly get happy listening to that groove. It never fails on the dancefloor, so let’s get shaking…”
Justin Martin – “Don’t Go” (Dusky Remix)
“This track never gets old. Everything is perfect, from the vocals, to the bouncy bassline, to the drop. I just can’t help but start dancing when I play this. It’s all about the good vibes.”
Clyde P – “Rollin’”
“I channel my inner gangster with this one. The lead synth gets me every single time. Excellent production from Clyde P. Keep them coming, oui oui!”
Illusionize & Victor Lou – “Bass Down Low”
“‘I like my beats fast and my bass down low.’ I really can’t disagree with that. This track is so bass heavy. It works wonders on the dancefloor, as people can easily recognize the lyrics and tend to sing along.”
Amine Edge & DANCE – “Going To Heaven With The Goodie-Goodies”
“This track is very special to me as it made me venture into the G-house/booty sound. Amine Edge & DANCE have really paved the way and have discovered amazing talent in the process. I love old school hip-hop, so to be able to sample the vocals and make something fresh is quite astonishing. This is a true feelgood track on the dancefloor.”
