Sweltering Summer House Tracks To Get Your Beach Bod Bumpin.
Enjoy The Hottest Chill Dance Tracks of June From Nora En Pure, St. Lucia, Honey Dijon and Claptone
"Don't Look Back" Nora En Pure, Enormous Tunes
Lush house EP Don't Look Back out now from the Queen of Summer Dance.
"A Brighter Love" St. Lucia, Columbia Records
You know its gonna a great year when St. Lucia announces a North American tour and starts dropping fuego singles and edits to go with it. This is Grade A dance pop music.
"Hearts Ain't Gonna Lie (Eden Prince Remix)" Arlissa, Positiva
Arlissa has Whitney pipes and fellow brit Eden Prince's edit really elevates the energy of the original to a track meant for clubs and beach days alike.
"Thunda (HNNY Remix)" Honey Dijon & Tim K feat. John Mendelsohn, Classic Music Company
HNNY always hits the spot, especially when he remixes the masterful Honey Dijon. The remix album Xtra of Dijon's incredible album The Best of Both Worlds is out now!
"Change the World" KC Lights & Nicole Dash Jones, Kerr Slaven
I've heard KC Lights remixes in my day but a true original with compliments from the soul elevating voice of Nicole Dash Jones has this writer excited for the future of KC.
"Abyss of Love" Claptone feat. Nathan Nicholson, Different Recordings
For a second there I thought it was the singer from Hot Chip! Such a simmering house jam off the latest Claptone album that has the blogosphere cheering.
"Across The Room (Tycho Remix)" ODESZA feat. Leon Bridges, Foreign Family Collective
The Leon Bridges feature was the best of any electronic song of 2017 and the Tycho remix might be the most genius of 2018. ODESZA continues to impress me with their magnetism for great talent.
"Tranz" Gorillaz, Parlophone Records Limited
Now this is the Gorillaz I know and love. Their long awaited return album from last year was a bit of a let down but the newly released follow up The Now Now realigns my love for the eclectic force band. Their new tour show was exceptional so make sure to catch them ASAP especially since they'll be playing these new jams!
"Strangers (Jonas Blue Remix)" Sigrid
Jonas Blue has the Midas touch as a producer and remixer, evolving his sound from the once popular tropical vibe to great electronic pop. Sigrid is like if Millie Bobby Brown (Eleven in Stranger Things) and Lorde morphed into one. An absolute force of a young talent on stage, with endless confidence and brain rattling pipes and just a fun, genuine and goofy disposition and tude. She's going nowhere so sit back and enjoy. Check out her evolving EP Raw, out now.
"Feel Good" Maribou State feat. Khruangbin
This breakbeat, worldly instrumental collab between two absolute forces belongs in a surf documentary. It sends you to somewhere raw and wild where nature rules. The UK duo and Houston trio are friends apparently and decided to create a track for Maribou's upcomign album Kingdom In Colour.
"True Colors" Hoodboi, Fool's Gold Records
Daymaker EP Breathing Room out now from the LA-based producer. Great tunes to zone out to or compliment your day while working on those tanlines.
"Little Things" Garçons
Groove, Funk and House Vibes color this irrestible track from my newly discovered duo Garçons, made up of Nigerian/Canadian singer Deelo and producer Julian Strangelove.
"Inhale (The Tribe Of Good Remix)" Duke Dumont, Virgin EMI
I love that Duke added a disco remix to his remix package of killer single "Inhale". Great stuff from The Tribe Of Good, the "London-based collective that fuses dance music with vintage soul and disco." Their debut record drops soon!
"It's Wrong" Michael Calfan feat. Danny Dearden, One More Tune
I can't control how it feels when I listen to this song and start dancing in my cubicle at work. French producer Michael Calfan recruits Danny Dearden for some of the happiest summertime beats out I've heard in a hot hot minute.
"Dangerous (Touch Sensitive Remix)" Umii, Fresh Selects
Portland smooth-as-butta crooner Reva DeVito and collaborator B. Bravo have special magic in their young project Umii, releasing last year's This Time EP and recruiting one of our favorite disco dance producers/pizza guys Touch Sensitive for a sparkly new remix. This one goes well with an Aperol Spritz. Doctors Orders.
