Tingling pianos, rapturous soulful vocals and uplifting choruses are just a few things that make the classic deep house and vocal house sound from the mid-90s to early 2000’s still ignite dancefloors today, especially with folks who used to hit the clubs and festivals and dance parties many years ago. These timeless anthems have crunching breaks and funky bass lines that ooze fun and make you want to sing along and wave your hands in the air. The depth and mesmerising power of these tracks stand the test of time, with many Australian tunes featured. It’s a throwback party vibe that always gets the party rocking and raises spirits on the dancefloor. It really was a golden era for dance music.

From Finally by Kings of Tomorrow, to Music Sounds Better With You by Stardust and Love Generation by Bob Sinclar as well as the massive build-up of Shooting Stars by Bag Raiders and One More Time by Daft Punk, there’s a massive array of quality tunes.

It got us thinking about all the massive vocal house and deep house bangers out there and we quickly concluded that vocal house is one of the most powerful energies in the universe. There’s few experiences quite like getting swept up in the collective ecstasy of belting out lyrics that ascend with supernatural force above a backdrop of spine-tingling production. So we decided to compile a selection of the greatest vocal house songs ever and inject a fat measure of joy into the life of anyone who comes across it.

Big tunes with loads of swagger, we hope you enjoy the list below.
