Ahead of her set at SWG3's iNCEPT Summer Special, The Club Paisley resident Lindsay Green selects ten tracks guaranteed to have the party heaving, from house staples to Blondie and The Rolling Stones

"When you love so much music, it's hard to pick ten tracks and say these are my favourites – I probably have about one hundred," admits The Club Paisley resident Linsday Green. A respected selector within Glasgow's techno scene, Green has played at some of the city's premiere club events, including Return to Mono and Pressure, and has supported the likes of Jeff Mills, Joseph Capriati and Nicole Moudaber. Here, she has picked ten tracks that define her eclectic influences, from after-party bangers to rock n' roll classics; listen to the playlist in the Spotify player below.

Laurent Garnier – The Man With the Red Face
An electronic masterpiece. Laurent Garnier presents LBS Live at the Arches back in 2011 was amazing! It was the first time I heard this performed live and I was blown away. Great one to end the night with! 

Nathan Fake – The Sky Was Pink (James Holden Remix)
Epic remix from James Holden. A good friend of mine, Davie, introduced me to this track at an after party about six or seven years ago. I love the journey it takes you on. I played my first gig in Barcelona earlier in the year at Macarena Club. I ended with this and the reaction I got from the crowd was unbelievable. A moment that will stay with me forever. 

Aphex Twin – Heliosphan 
Selected Ambient Works, what an album! I always get inspired when I listen to it. So many great tracks on there, but Heliosphan is my favourite. I would love to hear Aphex Twin doing this album live. 

Inner City – Till We Meet Again (Carl Craig Remix)

I always remember hearing Slam dropping this in the Arches years ago, it's been a favourite of mine ever since. My boyfriend Raymond has done an edit adding the "Can You Feel It" vocal into the intro. It's great for starting a set off with – the vocal really gets the crowd going, then that lovely bass line comes in. 

Funk D'Void – Diabla (Heavenly Mix) 
Funk D'Void is a class DJ and producer. Whatever he does, it's never monotonous and always oozes quality. The 'Heavenly Remix' of Diabla is very uplifting and atmospheric.

Laurent Garnier – Gnanmankoudji (Horny Monster Remix) 
I first heard the Horny Monster Remix in Laurent Garnier's set from The End closing party. The track is just over 10 minutes long and I love how it progresses. The pads are so powerful and the sax sounds gallus. More recently I have been digging the Emperor Machine Remix, it's got a more funky vibe.

Blondie – Atomic
Blondie have so many great tracks, Atomic is one of my all time favourite records, has been from a young age. I love the guitars in it. I was playing an eclectic set a couple of years ago and finally got the chance to drop it in a club. 

Sylvester – Do Ya Wanna Funk
I love a bit of funk and disco. For me this is one of the best. It's such a feel good track that makes you wanna dance! 

New Order – Blue Monday
I'll never forget the first time I dropped this in a DJ set. I was playing at Boogaloo in Glasgow, this was the last track of the night and the place was going mental. I ended up on the promoter's shoulders, bouncing about the DJ booth!

The Rolling Stones – Gimme Shelter 
I love The Stones and was lucky enough to see them live at Desert Trip in Coachella last year. When I heard the guitar coming in at the start of the track I got goosebumps, hearing it live was something else. You wouldn't think the average age of the band was 73, the guys rocked it! 

Lindsay Green plays iNCEPT Summer Special at Glasgow's SWG3 on Saturday 22 July, featuring Johannes Heil (live), Kim Ann Foxman, Hans Bouffmyhre, and more.
