A recent Ministry of Sound Reunion Tour took me back to a time in the early 2000s when clubbing was glam and vocal house was at its peak. In celebration of this time, here are seven club classics from the early 2000s, a time when you may have first fallen in love with dance music

Recently I was fortunate enough to attend the Ministry of Sound Reunion Tour. It took me back to a time in the early 2000s when clubbing was glam and vocal house was at its peak. It got me to thinking, what were my all-time favourite club tracks? Here are my pick.

Finally, Kings of Tomorrow

Everyone can relate to this track. There may have been a time when you were in the middle of a crowded dance floor, and Finally was mixed in and you thought: “this song just gets me!”

Silence, Delerium featuring Sarah McLachlan

McLachlan’s iconic vocals make this upbeat track one of my all-time faves. Five stars!

Good Luck, Basement Jaxx featuring Lisa Kekaula

Selecting only one of Basement Jaxx’s tunes as one of my top clubbing anthems is difficult. With its UK garage sound and great vocal collaborations, Good Luck is the cream of the crop in the Basement Jaxx catalogue.

Believe, Chemical Brothers

The Chemical Brothers knew how to blow up a dance floor. Believe is one of those songs that are so catchy you’ll find it playing over and over in your head all day, not to mention, the film clip is amazing!

Sandstorm, Darude

High energy and an absolute club favourite from the early 2000s, this was the tune of choice for any mainstream DJ at the peak of their set.

I’m in Love, Alex Gaudino

This is just fun! Guaranteed to put a smile on your face whenever it’s played.

Seek Bromance, Tim Berg

While technically not an early 2000s track, Seek Bromance took 2010 by storm! With a film clip alluding to sexual fluidity, lyrics every angst-ridden 20-something can relate to, and a banging beat, it had to be in this list somewhere.
