Classic tracks you need to hear from Space closing 2016

The tunes that shook us at Space's climactic showdown

Clubs catering for dance music stalkers have had punters queueing up and gaggin' for an onslaught of tunes for over two decades. We've stood outside knuckled between our fellowmen on the rummage for a stack of tunes that'll push us back through the doors feeling elevated and educated.

If you're a part of this game, you know the score and you'll be nodding in agreement when we say that the anticipation for the bombs that would be dropped at Space – an institution that has been giving it to us good for 27 years – undoubtedly hit a peak among the thousands who made it there and the thousands across the globe watching from their homes.

Sunday 2 October had a booming line-up filled with DJs who have eclectic tastes and knowledge of the tracks that during one of its many seasons became synonymous with the club. With that in mind we knew we had 20 hours of magic, memorable moments that will in turn create an experience that will remain locked up and unrivalled in our minds for years to come.

And so, here are our picks of just some of the stellar selections that had us glowing through to 12 PM on Monday for Space's final fiesta.
