As part of the Ransom Note team, Matt C be playing at the Wild Wood Disco Festival this month. Here we asked him to take us back to his post club, for the afters. The lights are low, the drinks are flowing, this is the playlist.

1. Jonny Nash & Suzanne Kraft - See Yourself Out of the Way

To start the evening, something from Jonny Nash and Suzanne Kraft goes nicely. It's difficult to pick one track in particular from these two, but this one I always keep coming back to. Simple, beautiful and effective.

2. Spooky - Orange Coloured Liquid

Getting some Spooky in there is essential. A beautiful record that can fit a lot of occasions, start of club nights, sunrise sessions, afters and closing sets.

3. Barker - Paradise Engineering

Next up, some Barker would squeeze in nicely. You could play anything from this album really, it's majestic and the whole thing is wonderful, but Paradise Engineering is the pick for me.

4. Round Five - Na Fe Throw It (Feat. Tikiman)

A dubby and infectious track wouldn't go a miss here, and Na Fe Throw It is perfect listening to get lost in.

5. Saskia - You Left Your Soul Behind

I think you need something with that low slung guitar sound in this type of playlist a well, and this comment says it all: "I am powerless to resist the charms of Saskia. Spellbinding!"

6. Aphex Twin - Xtal

Some Aphex goes without saying.

7. Ghost Vision - OZEN

"A Balearic affair with a sun kissed edge" We need more of this from Danny & Thomas, a gorgeous track that speaks for itself. Really hazy and sets the mood just right.

8. Sun Electric - O'Locco (Kama Sutra)

A proper toe tapper to chill out and kick back to. A track to bring everyone up just a touch before bringing the night to close.

9. Beaumont Hannant - Utuba

Utuba has always been a regular for me to play after hours. Lovely and atmospheric to fit the occasion.

10. Slag Boom Van Loon - Poppy Seed (Boards of Canada Remix)

For the last tune before closing the doors and going to bed, I think it has to end with a classic.
