Summertime Gladness// My Top Summer Vibes
Summer is here, and along with it all the great tracks for your summertime soundtracks. This year we have a boatload of great vibes with some proto/nu/future/retro house flavor so in no particular order here you go:
UPDATE: Here is a recent mix I did that has most of these on it, click HERE to listen and download:
Kiesza – Hideaway
Hands down my favorite track in the past year for so many reasons! I love everything about it and the video is spectacular! Already a hit worldwide and finally catching on here.
Route 94 – My Love
Not even a full song but it has captured the love of airwaves and dancefloors around the globe.
Duke Dumont – I Got U
Borrowing the vocals from the late Whitney Houston’s “My Love Is Your Love” this song is hands down one of the best uses of the late singers works yet. Already a hit prettymuch anywhere music exists, if you haven’t fallen in love with this track it’s never too late!
Here is Whitney’s “My Love Is Your Love”:
Cazzette – Sleepless
An artist usually delivering pretty big electro tunes such as “Run For Cover” turns out one of this summers surprise twists. Haunting and moody but right up there with what happening now.
EDX – Cool You Off/Breathin’
EDX’x latest trend seems to be more downtempo housey then his usual progressive anthems but from “Reckless Adour” to his remix of “Back There” and his new track “Breathin'” he has definitely carved out a niche for himself in the summer house arena.
Oliver Heldens feat Becky Hill – Gecko (Overdrive)
Originally an instrumental, “Gecko” was given vocals courtesy of Becky Hill and turned an already breakthrough track into an even bigger one (depending on who you ask). With a sound that has been emulated and copied by both newbies and seasoned producers Oliver Heldens is a rising star, could he be the next Martin Garrix?
Tchami – Untrue
Spinnin’ Records is on the ball scooping up all the hot new summer “house” tracks including “Gecko” and “Breathin'” as well as this one, from undoubtedly my favorite new producer. Everything Tchami touches turns to gold for me.
Clean Bandit – Rather Be feat. Jess Glynne (The Magician Remix)
The original is quite fun, but this mix makes it a bit more dancefloor friendly for me without turning it into a big room banger.
Gorgon City Featuring Laura Welsh – Here For You
Love Gorgon City, especially since half of the duo is FOAMO. This track is definitely creeping up my list to the top of my favorite tracks of the summer.
Mr Probz – Waves (Robin Schulz Remix)
With a vibe reminiscent of “Fast Car” from Tracy Chapman and a smooth vibe that feels like your driving across the country with the top down.
Tourist – I Can’t Keep Up
These vocals, man, just love this track! The Sasha White remix is the biz niz!
Faul & Wad Ad vs. Pnau – Changes
A lot of names, but a simple track that samples Pnau’s song “Baby”. Grab a fuity frozen drink and lay by the pool and catch the rays while this plays.
Disclosure feat. Sam Smith – Latch (Oliver Heldens Remix)
Had to end with a Disclosure track… Oliver Heldens delivers a slightly more driving remix then many that I’ve heard but it works for me.
