A really solid house track. Seems rarer these days. Instead of trying to add more, this track stays simple and true to house roots: a great bass-line, breakdowns with a crescendo and drop, enjoyable vocals, and a groove you can’t help but dance to.
This would have been the single on John Mayer’s last album. Massive similarities aside, this is a fantastic song that just screams to be first track on a great road trip mix. Kudos to Justin Bieber for plucking this guy from tiny clubs in Seattle and throwing him into the spotlight, there may be a lot more to come from this guy.
Ignoring the panda mask for the time being, this is a really great tune. This live version especially. Fun uptempo hiphop with a soulful swagger. A thank you goes out to some great germans I had the pleasure of getting to know on a trip through the west coast of the USA for turning me onto this gem. Enjoy!
The latest from Swedish pop mastermind Max Martin. From “I Want It That Way” by the Backstreet Boys to this, Max Martin is the hidden producer behind almost every singalong pop song you’ve grown up with. Don’t believe me? Look him up. He’s created more pop singles than anyone in history. Period. His latest pop masterpiece, like all the ones that came before, is a catchy, funky and very, very danceable pop anthem.
Final Song isn’t even this Danish singer’s most popular song. You probably know her as the singer from Major Lazer and Dj Snake’s massive hit “Lean On” or maybe her first main single “Kamikaze”. Either way, her latest single is my favorite so far and proves to me that she’s not planning on being a one hit wonder and you’ll be hearing more from her in the future.
I’m torn here as to my favorite remix of this song. Popular wisdom would say the Illenium remix which already has over 27 million views on Youtube… which is ridiculous. Still though, the Jenaux Remix has a different vibe, even though most would still class it as a Trap remix. The Jenaux remix certainly is not as polished, but there is still something that in my mind makes it an even competitor. You be the judge.
I already posted the first track I heard from this Welsh band, but this next track is their most popular track (recently). If you haven’t checked them out yet you should, I’m definitely a fan. At the bottom is their currently most popular song, a great acoustic track from 3 years ago called ‘A Part of Me’ feat. Laura Whiteside.
I’m not a huge Adele fan, but when I heard this track is just stuck with me. There’s something about it that I haven’t been able to put my finger on but it’s captivating. I’ve also included a half decent pop cover version by a group called Against The Current.
