UK DJ and producer Eli Brown, like the rest of the dance music community, has had his mind on Miami for some time. Though the festivities are over, the effects are still there with new music and maybe a little tan (or just a cold and sunburn). We asked Eli to come up with some of his favorite tracks for and from Miami and he delivered. He shares tunes from Drake, Disciples, Kaytranada, Detlef and himself as he has a new EP out on Sola today and a track on a new Repopulate Mars compilation.
Peep the full playlist below and his explanation as to why each tune slaps. Pick up his new Kingston Crunch EP on Beatport and find the lead track in the playlist below. His tune on the Repopulate Mars compilation is also included.
1. Eli Brown - Kingston Crunch
This is taken from my new EP on Solardo's Sola label. Whilst its a banging club track its full of steal drums which makes it the perfect tune to drop during the Winter Music conference.
2. Drake - Gods Plan
Could have picked a ton of Drake tunes as his tunes make for perfect listening around the pool when the suns shining. However, I decided to pick this one as its something I have been listening to loads lately.
3. Eli Brown - Cartagena
Another tune of mine that's coming on Lee Foss' Repopulate Mars Miami Compilation. The Latin samples and big bass totally lends it self to a Miami pool party!
4. Aura - Panic Room (Camelphat Remix)
Definitely one of my favourite tunes at the moment so had to include it. Not often a club record can spark so much emotion but this tune really achieves that. Perfect for chilling out in the sun or peak time in the club.
5. Mo Stack - What I Wanna
Mo Stack is on fire at the moment, If you haven't heard of him check this guy out! Love this tune, summer party vibes all over it!
6. Disciples - 48 hrs
Love this track, a great mix of house music and pop but executed perfectly. Great summer vibes and definitely something I'd listen to around the pool.
7. Kaytranada - Got It Good ft. Craig David
Wicked vibes all round on this tune. Perfect for sunsets and mojitos.
8. Badsista - Na Madruga - Branko Edit
Love the Latin street vibes to this. This is definitely something I'd be rocking in Miami.
9. Detlef Ft Dejae - Deep Dip
Probably my favourite tune right now. Big vibes from Detlef.
10. Eli Brown & MANT - Feel Good
Out now as part of Sola music's Miami compilation. Big euphoric synths and a heavy drop, been played by quite a varied selection of DJ's from Solardo to Tchami & Malaa.
