Presenting every song you need to make up the ultimate Freshers playlist. Featuring tracks from Julio Bashmore, Redlight and a J-Kwon classic.
As you begin to pack up your bedroom and head to University halls, make sure you're not only armed with books, bedding and a few bottles to keep you going, but also all of the songs that will make up a huge playlist and get your freshers week going.
Thanks to our very own Coco, who presents Clubbers Guide with Ministry of Sound every Friday from 4pm on Capital XTRA, for putting together this list of bangers.
As you begin your night with a bunch of total strangers, it's always a good idea to kick thing off with a total classic - so at least there's some familiarity.
Bring things back to 2014 with Shiba San's party-starter.
Wade and Odyssey update R Kelly's classic 'Bump And Grind' and bring a party-vibe with it into 2014.
This is the kind of track you want on when the drinks are flowing.
The beat on this big new anthem from Kill Them With Colour will help everyone loosen up as your night begins.
Because it's huge!
Wayward, who have recently signed to Black Butter Records, produce a real throwback feel in this bouncy new track. A great one to hit play on as the night begins to build up.
Ill Blu speeds up Melissa Steel's chart-climbing pop-dance track turning it into a total floor-filler.
Has this track been out long enough to call it a classic yet? We think so.
Because this song gets everyone going in the club. So it should work in your halls.
Just don't go all Steve Aoki on everyone and start throwing cakes in peoples faces. That might not go down well.
No doubt this has been one of the biggest songs of 2014 so far, so it has to make the cut.
Because, are any lyrics more appropriate for Freshers week?
When Disclosure dropped this remix earlier this year all of the love everyone had for Pharrell's 'Frontin' came rushing back. The British boys work their usual magic to pump up the volume on this one.
This. Is. My. Bassline.
