Over the past six years, FACT has watched Tom Trago grow from enfant terrible of the Amsterdam house scene to one of the dance world’s most well-regarded DJs, producers and live performers.
He has released on several different labels (including that collaboration with Bok Bok on Sound Pellegrino), but the overwhelming majority of his output has come via Amsterdam’s own Rush Hour. To celebrate his new single, ‘Rise Up’, Trago has picked his five favourite recent cuts from the Rush Hour catalogue; check them out over the following pages.
Londoners can catch the Dutchman play live at Fabric this Saturday, 3 November, as part of a sterling Room 3 line-up that also features Tomoki Tamura, Tuccillo and Lookleft & Bearight. More information and tickets here.

VIRGO FOUR ‘IT’S A CRIME’ (CARIBOU REMIX)
“Amazing new-school acid track and one of my favorite Caribou productions, I still regularly play this one.”
JUMP ‘CHICO’ SLAMM ‘GALACTIC ALIGNMENT’
“One of my favorite house records at the moment. Solid US house. Can’t wait to hear more from this producer. Also check his ‘Feel Free’ track from way back when.”
“My man KiNK never disappoints. This is the B-side of his recent Hand Made EP. Those train sounds are addictive!
SAN PROPER ‘ANIMAL’
“Dutch pride. His album Animal is a great piece of work, and the title track is one of my favorites.”
