With summer now in full effect, hanging by the pool is standard procedure. What pairs perfectly with lounging in the sun? Music, obviously. To help us maximize our relaxation, we asked Toolroom's Opolopo to compile his favorite poolside records. Fresh off his Toolroom Poolside Ibiza 2019 mix, he, as expected, has flawlessly delivered a list of sexy and laidback anthems.
Benet - Floating
A nice way to kick things of. A midtempo groover that hits the right spots:
Zhao - Magic (Ed-Ward Love Remix)
Nice and mellow, still splashing about in the pool:
Soulphiction - Bizzness
A sweet dusty groove and lovely vocal sample:
Marc Bianco - Wet Scott
Jazzy and bouncy - the floaters are coming off:
Dego & The 2000 Black Family - Don't Stop (Let It Go) (ft. Izzy Dunn)
Timeless, jazzy boogie groove by some of London's broken beat heroes.
Patrice Rushen - Remind Me (OPOLOPO remix)
This one seems to go down well in most sun-drenched scenarios.
Simbad - Take My Hand feat. Brian Temba
Some gorgeous melancholy to break things up a bit:
Crusaders Feat. Randy Crawford - Street Life (OPOLOPO Rebounce)
You can either have somebody pee in the pool or play this one and people will come running. ;-)
Maddslinky feat. Omar - Special
Played this to death when it came out. Happy, sunny soulful vibes. Maddslinky and Omar - can't go wrong with this one:
Dynasty - Adventures In The Land Of Music
Finishing off with a slow jam. "Adventures In The Land Of Music", that's what it's all about...
