Damn it's hot out here! Just sayin, y'all, if you visit Austin, TX during the summer you need to know what you're in for. You know what's also hot as hell? This here chart. There are so many fresh releases on our radar that we had to cut a dozen songs from the list in order to keep it to 15! It's tough to get yourself to dance when the temps sneak up into the triple digits but it's even harder NOT to when you're listening to these disco jams! Enjoy!

7. Aroop Roy - Mapora - Kampana

Masterful work on this absolute classic! It’s got that special type of vocal feature that you sing without knowing the words.
