Vérité - Constant Crush (Mansionair remix)
Reaching back to early summer to throw you Australian outfit, Vérité - Mansionair's funky remix, to be exact. The hypnotic chorus of this track from her 2016 EP, Living, resonates throughout your body while an undertone of light drums will keep your head bouncing.
Cash + David - When You’re Lonely
English duo Cash + David put it all on the table through the addictively desperate lyrics in “When You’re Lonely.” The difficulties behind love, longing and insecurity are perfectly wrapped up into one contagious dance beat that will keep you hitting repeat.
Roosevelt - Fever
Roosevelt’s single off his debut album with Greco-Roman is a shoutout to the nonchalance of a youthful summer, and will have you yearning for August summer nights. His dizzying lyrics and imaginative instrumentals make you feel like you’re living in a dream, and it’s blissfully satisfying.
AlunaGeorge - I’m in Control ft. Popcaan (Trinix Remix)
What do you get when you combine electro-pop AlunaGeorge with a splash of Reggae, a twist of R&B and a future house beat? A summer smash that hits in all the right places. The vocals take a backseat in this Trinix Remix, but I promise you won’t mind. Let your body take control and turn this one up.
Jerry Folk - Where I’m Going
Jerry Folk is funky, and this track masterfully mixes both modern and retro sounds into a nu-indie-disco collaboration that explodes with individuality.
Chet Porter - Stay feat. Chelsea Cutler
Stay by Chet Porter is the latest single to emerge from the visual and musical minds of Foreign Family Collective, and it evokes notes similar to Odeza, Imogen Heap and Pogo. Its whimsical beat encourages hope and naïvety, leaving you with a euphoric feeling that you wished would stay.
Soul Catalyst - Scenic Route Ft. Felish
Scenic Route ft. Felish delivers positivity and introspection with a side of moodiness, creating the perfect blend of rhythm and atmosphere. Let’s do it again.
Sachi - Hold On
