Christmas is over, and those turkey sandwiches are gradually losing their appeal.
Time for another party, then, to blow away the cobwebs. Thankfully, New Year's Eve is fast approaching, and promoters across the land are gearing up for one of the busiest nights of the year.
House production team The Basement Boys are in town, playing a special set at London's Ministry Of Sound venue on New Year's Day.
As a warm up, The Basement Boys have pieced together this very special New Year's playlist...

1. Michele Chiavarini - 'Let Me See You Clap Your Hands'
This track is the ultimate make u dance song! The piano riff alone is sick, but it's arranged in such a way that hands organically go flying in the air when it's played!
2. Sylvester - 'You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)'
Works like you would not believe. People this song so loudly that you can simply. It the music off and they'll keep singing!
3. Ninetoes - 'Finder'
The tenor pan sound in this track is so infectiously original that it drives dance floors crazy! This is another track that is arranged perfectly!
4. Crystal Waters - 'Gypsy Woman'
What can you say about the infectiousness of this track. Everybody sings it whenever it gets played!
5. Bohannon - 'Let's Start 2 Dance'
If you don't feel like moving, you will when this one gets played! If you don't know the song, others around you will and when they start losing it, so will you.
6. Mass Order - 'Lift Every Voice'
I have seen people lose their voices trying to sing this track that is an ode to Chicago House!
7. Dennis Ferrer - 'Hey Hey'
This track demands crowd response! Still to this day works like a charm.
8. Loleatta Holloway - 'Love Sensation'
Most people wound not even know who Loleatta is, but everybody in one way or another knows 'Love Sensation'. Probably 20 percent of all house tracks have sampled it.
9. MAW - 'Backfired'
India's vocal performance on this track is so incredible that people just start dancing, especially girls.
10. Donna Summer - 'I Feel Love'
Looooove, ooooove, ooooove!! Everybody starts singing and hands fly to the ceiling! The electronic groove is killer, but Donna's super, ultra sexy performance on this track is second to none.
