Aly Gillani je prvenstveno promotor i DJ, a onda i vlasnik etikete First Word Records za koju potpisuju imena poput Tall Black Guy-a, Souleance, Yosia Horikawa, kidkanevila, Essae, The Fontanellesa, i mnogih drugih. Svake godine možete ga poslušati na Soundwaveu ili pak Outlooku.

Zamolili smo Alya aka DJ Gillu da nam složi top listu njegovih najdražih ljetnih traka, i o svakoj pokoju riječ, a svatko tko ga želi slušati uživo svakako bi trebao navratiti na ovogodišnji Soundwave, koji i ove godine ima vrlo raznolik program i odlične goste.

1. Lucy Pearl – Without You (Jay Dee Remix)

Classic Dilla production – Jeep music!

2. Roy Ayers – Everybody Loves The Sunshine

An obvious choice, but so perfect: ‘Just bees and things and flowers…’

3. Mtume – Juicy Fruit

The track behind the Biggie classic – a bonafide groove.

4. William DeVaughn- Be Thankful For What You Got

As covered by Massive Attack – a beautiful record and sentiment

5. A Tribe Called Quest – Find A Way

One of my favourite tracks from one of my favourite groups.

6. Fela Kuti – Water No Get Enemy

Afrobeat from the master.

7. Steve Miller Band – Fly Like An Eagle

Cosmic rock with real funk.

8. Nancy Wilson – I’m In Love

A recent discovery – sampled by Erykah Badu in the last few years – real soul music!

9. Souleance – Chemise Re-Edit

One from our own label (First Word) – a disco re-edit that’s an instant party starter

10. Hooked – Sir Own (Kon’s Nite Time Edit)

Another disco edit – a dope bassline, slinky guitar and a vocal hook to die for. Love it!
