Stealth XV Selections: Matt Tolfrey

The end of April sees the 15th Birthday of Stealth - and to celebrate we have sat down with a number of our residents and regular guests to run through the songs that remind them of their time at the club.

First off we speak to one of our original residents, who went on to release on the likes of Jamie Jones' 'Hot Creations', Damian Lazarus' 'Crosstown Rebels', The Martinez Brothers' 'Cuttin’ Headz', Skream's 'Of Unsound Mind', Radio Slave's 'REKIDS' and his own impressive imprint, 'Leftroom' - it's Matt Tolfrey!

 ----

1. Alter Ego - 'Rocker': This was the ‘original’ anthem of Stealth, and I remember when I managed to get my hands on a promo vinyl of it at Selectadisc in Nottingham.

----

2. Ito & Star - 'Sudoko Kid': One of the biggest tracks I ever signed to my label Leftroom Limited, and still sounds great to this day!!!

----

3. Raudive - 'Here': One of the most mental breakdowns you will ever hear!!!

----

4. Gabriel Ananda - 'Doppelwhipper': 'Relentless driving beats that I played at the club for a very very long time!!!

----

5. John Tejada - 'Sweat (On The Walls)': I think the title of the track says it all!!!

----

6. Matt Tolfrey and Craig Sylvester - 'The Horn': The first record I ever had signed by Damian Lazarus to the mighty Crosstown Rebels. It used to be the anthem of Bugged Out at Stealth back in the day.

----

7. Aphex Twin - 'Windowlicker (Run Jeremy's X-Rated Lick)': The most requested record I ever used to play at the club, so much so I had to buy another copy because my original got worn out!!!

----

8. Mathew Jonson - 'Decompression': Nothing will ever beat the bass in this record. Pushed the Funktion One to their limit!!!

----

9. Derrick L Carter - 'Where Ya At?': One of the most stand out and original vocals you will ever hear in a house record. A genius at work...

----

10. Dave Barker and Brett Johnson - 'Temptations And Lies': This record followed us from The Bomb to Stealth but was the soundtrack to my years spent in Nottingham.

As part of Stealth's 15th Birthday we have been looking back and creating Spotify playlists of the biggest tracks played in the club for each year we have been opened.

First up, it's a selection of the biggest House & Techno tracks of 2004, which include some of Matt's selections:

We've just added the 2005 playlist, and will be posting more in the coming weeks on the Stealth Spotify page.
