So the weathers getting warmer and we’re getting ever so close to the summer and yep you guessed it.. festival season!
I for one am incredibly excited with many a festival etched in the diary, so in sticking with that, the April playlist has a tonne of good feeling summer vibes. It’s all a little chillwave with a bit of rock and rap chucked in for good measure.
I Got U ft Jax Jones – Duke Dumont
It’s probably embarrassing the number of times I’ve played this track on my iPod already, but I don;t care as it’s puts me in the best mood! I love the Jamaican steel drums over the house beat it just works so well!
Waves (Robin Schulz Remix) – Mr. Probz
Another one with far too many iPod plays but again another amazing combination of a classic instrument with a house beat. The vocal in this are gorgeous as well! Get me to the beach!
Cinderella (She Said Her Name) – Bob Sinclar
This song is actually kind of romantic and beautiful which I think it was makes it even better. But it’s techno vibe break down and vocal sample are a perfect pair in this one. It’s a total game changer for Sinclar and he should stick with it.
Changes – FAUL & Wad Ad vs Pnau
Another chillwave track that uses the classix saxaphone to give it a jazz edge. It just works okay?
Hideaway – Kiesza
Seriously where did this girl come from!? She’s just suddenly appeared and grabbed the no.1 spot with her debut track and it’s pretty darn good!
Summer – Calvin Harris
I can’t help but like this guys stuff. A great dance track as always from the newly transformed DJ hottie.
Gonna Make My Own Money – Deep Vally
Yeah I know it’s a year old but these two ladies still fucking rock. This has always been one of my favourite tracks and get me in the mood to rock out at a festival.
The Edge – Tonight Alive
My current obsession is the new Spidey. Seriously go and see it. IT IS THE BEST FILM YOU WILL SEE THIS YEAR. FACT. So naturally as Tonight Alive (a band I love purely because they fit nicely into the female-led punk pop genre) have done a track I love that too. Can’t help myself to a bit of punk-pop under killer female vocals.
Sweetest Thing – The Pretty Reckless
As always these guys along with the viper that is Taylor Momsen have produced a hard rocking track from one bloody good album. Warning: the riffs in this track could make your eyes water.
Cry – The Used
It’s been a while since I’ve listened to these guys, but as there new album ‘Imaginary Enemy’ came out not too long ago I thought it was about time they got my attention again. Yeah it sounds like The Used but I still can’t help but love them. This tracks got a pretty sweet catchy vibe too it as well.
100 (ft. WatchTheDuck) – Iggy Azalea
Oh Iggy how my love of you grows as you fill my obsession with strong females. The New Classic was by no way a let down and this track has become one of my favourites with its summer guitar vibes.
