Playlist: EKKAH pick out their essential tour tracks

Take a listen!

Having started making music together at school, electronic pop duo EKKAH have been making waves over the past few years with a succession of dancefloor-filling tracks, capturing the imaginations of listeners and tastemakers alike.

The pair have been steadily growing their fanbase by dropping tunes such as Backstreet Driver, Last Chance To Dance, Small Talk, Just A Thing and Homesick

Known for their energy-filled gigs, the duo have performed at festivals such as Glastonbury, Tramlines and Bestival. 

EKKAH hit the road this autumn, kicking things off with a London headline show at Colours Hoxton, before headlining the CloseUp tour in Liverpool, Birmingham and Sheffield. 

Ahead of the gigs, we asked EKKAH to make us a playlist of songs that they’ll be listening to on the road and to tell us a bit about them. 


Sister Sledge – Thinking of You
This classic is pure groove. The strings and guitar are so sweet.


Daebull feat. Holybrune – Break Your Heart
This track has such an awesome hook. It reminds us of working with Dam-Funk in LA… Good times.


Jamiroquai – Canned Heat
There is no better song to warm up your dance moves to before you go on stage. Fact.


Crazy P – Like A Fool
We are huge fans of Crazy P and this has to be their coolest jam.


Jocelyn Brown – Somebody Else’s Guy
This is “our song”. We hear it literally everywhere and when we do we can tend to get a little OTT with our reaction to it. 


Friends – I’m His Girl
Friends are/were the most underrated band in the universe. We have been chatting to the singer Sam about making a track for a while which would be awesome. But keep that between us!


Angie Stone – Wish I Didn’t Miss You
You have to cry sing this out anytime you hear it, it has to make it.


Basement Jaxx – Magnificent Romeo
This mash-up of The Clash and Basement Jaxx is a pure pre-stage banger that makes us wanna dance around the room. 


Purple Disco Machine – Move or Not
This remix is pure genius, enough said.


Roberto Surace – Joys
Because… vibes.


Letta Mbulu (The Revenge Edit) – Kilimanjaro
Because… bass line.
