For last Saturday’s party PARIS’ ACID BALL players (Hannah Holland, Sqeaky & Dan Beaumont) nominated their top ten Acid Ball bangers…

The Ride Committee feat Roxy – Get Huh (e-legal mix)
First saw Roxy perform this at Daisy Chain and he certainly tore it up, it has some of the best bitchin ever..I’ll push her down backwards, I HATE HUH! SQ

Armando – Let there be house (on youtube)
I have always been into armando, he has such an amazing catalouge. there are so many tracks of his to choose from but this track is pure Paris acid ball to the core. SQ

Danny Tenaglia – Bottom heavy (bottom heavy remix)
Such an amazing track …and long too. A total ballroom workout. Danny T at his best. It’s got it all: bass, acid, percussion all wrapped in a big sound spectrum. Turn this one up! Fuck the neighbours ITS DANNY TENEGLIA! SQ

Liberty city – Some Lovin’ (Murk mix)
This track is one of the sexiest tracks that liberty city put out. The bass line is OVER gurl! The haunting chords are spine tingling. Again so much to choose from as far as Liberty city are concerned but this is it for me. Ralph falcon at his best. BRING IT! SQ

Junior Vasquez – Get Your Hands Off My Man  (Junior’s Sound Factory Mix)
Top bitch vocals, with a long drawn out bass techy house bounce…GEt YOur…. HH

Willie Ninja – Hot (Adam K & Soha Mix)

The man himself , Willie Ninja , gives it good on this vogue classic. HH (NB… we can’t find this mix on the ‘tube!)

Jeremy Joshua & Harii Bandhu – My Head (Honey Dijon’s Give Me Good Head Mix)
Honey Dijon remixes this jackin pumpin groove, pure New York fierceness. HH

Marlon D – Jesus Creates Sound
This is the absolute ultimate in-case-of-emergency-break-glass Acid Ball DJ tool… Tribally teriffic! “This is a journey into sound…” DB

Angel Moraes – Heaven Knows I Can’t Understand (Angel’s Factory Dub)
Deep, deep down! A totally hypnotic journey deep into the heart of house… Or something. Absolute dancefloor magic; full of space and voodoo. DB

Kiwi Dreams – Y? (Danny’s Ballroom mix)
Sorry… More Tenaglia! But this is such a thumper, not to mention a tried-and-tested Acid Ball all-rounder that I couldn’t resist. Total genius. DB

Hannah Holland in i-DJ

Hannah Holland For i-D Mag by Hannah Holland

i-DJ: Hannah Holland

Hannah Holland is the deeply infectious resident Trailer Trash DJ who is well and truly, totally addicted to bass.

First strumming bass guitar in her best friend's band from the age of thirteen, Hannah's blood pumping live sets are always jam-packed full of dirty rhythms and decent beats. Full of cheek and brazen blonde ambition, she is now co-founder of event-turned-record-label Batty Bass as well as being one of the most reputable, sought after DJs on the East London rave scene. Playing only the tunes she feels the most passionate about, Hannah's daytime activities revolve around her scouting out vintage delights from underground record shops and hitting up her favourite blogs in search of the freshest new tracks to keep her fingers busy and her fans dancing. Describing her signature sound as “dark energy with a whirlpool of bass and rhythm” this one woman party brings the beats that make you move your dancing feet. A regular at events Wet Yourself, Acid Ball and Society, Hannah can also be found at a heap of dance festivals over the summer ahead.

i-D Online caught up with the lady DJ to find out whats happening in front of and behind her turntables right now.

Can you remember the first record you ever brought?

Me and my mate went up to Soho and bought some records from Black Market, It was a pretty intimidating place for two young girls to walk into. Dred Bass was one of the records I bought, a classic jungle tune and I still have it!

What is your favorite track of all time?

That's a hard question, there are so many! Maybe, 'Baby Wants To Ride', Frankie Knuckles (it never left the box); Omni Trio's 'Renegade Snares (Foul Play VIP Remix)' never fails to emote; Rick James, 'Give It To Me Baby'. I'm bad at this question!

Tell us about your most memorable party?

There are many, but one of my favorite was the Trailer Trash First Birthday. It was held in a disused prison, the oldest and largest in London, it used to be home to petty criminals in Dickensian times. It was complete madness, people going bonkers in cells!

What makes a good night?

A combination of a great crowd, who love their music and are there to dance their asses off, a really nice sounds system, originality and true genuine love of what their doing from the people behind it. Magical things can happen when all this is aligned!

You're a professional night owl, what’s your secret behind keeping fresh, awake and together?
Music and adrenaline are very powerful drugs.

Do you think being a female DJ in a predominately male industry makes your job harder?

I try not to think about it, I just do what I love.

Hannah Holland's top five places to party until you pass out:

Berlin - Panorama Bar
London - too many to mention. But Batty Bass is a good start!
Paris - Nouveau Casino
Stockholm - Under Bron
Porto - Plano B
