APRIL 2014 PLAYLIST

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. 

Peace out!

January Playlist Week 1

Hello!

So this is my first playlist for the blog! This week’s a little mainstream if I’m honest! But that’s because there’s actually some decent stuff out at the moment! The other reason is some of them are the jams me and my girls listen to on nights out so they have a lot of memories attached to them 🙂

There are some random ones in there too but you’ll get used to my eclectic taste once a few of these go up. My problem is I get bored of things too easily and need lots of different things to keep me interested!

One last thing, forgive me for having Miley Cyrus in the mix. Listen to the song and you’ll realise why as it’s super catchy! It was produced by Pharrell though and I’ve loved all the tracks he’s been making lately as they all have a real 60s Motown vibe going on, and I can’t help dancing to a good classic beat.

I pretty much have a pattern in a lot of music I listen too and thats energy. If it has added feel good vibes or a kick in the ass bite I’ll fall in love with it. Hence a lot of house/electro also being on the list as well as some acid from Manchester belle Findlay (Trust me she’s amazing).

All the tracks are in a playlist on my Youtube channel! Aren’t I good to you!

Gorgon City ft MNEK – Ready For Your Love

Amazing house beats & in love with MNEK’s vocals.

Brother & Bones – To Be Alive

Love these guys. Amazing rhythm & riffs. Richard’s vocal explosion in the chorus is to die for.

Flux Pavilion – Freeway

An amazing change for Flux in his house sound. His new EP Freeway is ace.

Miley Cyrus – #GETITRIGHT

Love the cheeky tone of this one. Pharell’s production is brilliant. The backing tracks funky rhythm makes up for the shit & cringy bridge.

Storm Queen – Look Right Through

Amazing dance track. Me & the girls can’t help going mental when this comes on. Best is insanely infectious.

Katy Perry – Walking On Air

Some say it was crap. But I love the 80s dance vibes in this track. Always a good driving song.

Pharrell – Happy

Far to infectious not to like. Makes you get up and move your feet!

Findlay – Greasy Love

This rock chick is going places. This track is so gritty and raw it makes your eyes water.

Charli XCX – Superlove

Amazing girl this one. Her synth-pop is insanely good! This track just makes you fall in love all over again.

Foxes – Let Go for Tonight

Great voice & it matched the powerfully emotionally driving chorus in this new track. Can’t wait to hear more!

Have an amazing day!

Peace out!

Sam 🙂
