Swedish DJ and producer Ken Bauer is best known for his exceptional ElectroHouse tunes and with a background in teaching digital music production, Ken is something of an expert when it comes to creating stand out releases.

Influenced by the likes of Hardwell, Armin van Buuren, Blasterjaxx and Ummet Ozcan, he has continually proved himself a force to be reckoned with. We caught up with Ken Bauer to discuss his top 10 tracks of all time.

Ken Bauer: “First of all, I want to point out that the list I created is in no particular order. These are all great tracks and each one of them could have been the top one.”

N-Trance – Set You Free

“This is literally one of the tracks I listened to the most during my youth. I fell in love with the vocal and the nice M1 Piano arps.”

Robert Miles – Children

“This proves that even a song without vocals can tell a beautiful story and move you.”

The Popcorn Makers – Popcorn

“This synth hook is just amazing. I have always wanted to make my own instrumental cover. Time will tell if I ever get around doing it!”

Jean Michel Jarre – Oxygene part 4

“This track got me hooked to instrumental music and is one of my all time favourites.”

Kavinsky – Nightcall

“I heard it in the movie ’Drive’ and fell in love with the dark vocal and the dreamy lush female chorus and instantly searched for it on Spotify. I still listen to it on a regular basis.”

Gypsy & the Cat – Parallel Universe

“I just love the chord progression and overall vibe in this. So glad I stumbled across this one.”

Jan Hammer – Crockett’s Theme

“I loved watching Miami Vice and this track was an instant favorite of mine.”

Tony Junior & JETFIRE feat. Rivero – Police

“I got totally obsessed with the sound when I heard this one the first time. The power and punch is just incredible and it has been one of my reference tracks for mix and mastering for a very long time.”

Eric Prydz – Call On Me

“The music video aside, the sidechain pumping in this track literary blew my mind when I heard the track for the first time.”

Red Carpet – Allright – Brad Carter Remix

“The piano chord progression in the breakdown is just breathtaking and still gives me goosebumps. Playing this in a club with powerful speakers still works wonders.”
