The Breakdown of the Playlist
1. Fisher - Losing It
"This song is undoubtedly the tune of the summer. I've heard this everywhere and it always goes off in the clubs."
2. Duke Dumont - Runway
"Duke Dumont has always put out fire records. This one is from his 'For Club Play Only' series and it's a stomper!"
3. Friend Within - The Truth
"As soon as I heard this, I knew it was going to be a big record. It has such good summer vibes."
4. Weiss - Feel My Needs
"I'm a sucker for piano house songs and this ticks all the boxes. This is a perfect summer record."
5. Jack Back - (It Happens) Sometimes
"The sample in this song has been used a few times before by people like Moby. Jack Back brings it into 2018 nicely."
6. David Penn - Nobody
"I always listen to this song loud when I drive down Sunset Boulevard. It's a feel good record."
David Penn 'Nobody' youtu.be
7. Calvin Harris - Promises (Sonny Fodera Remix)
"The original is such a good tune. I love the new direction Calvin is going in and Sam Smith's vocal sound is so smooth. Sonny Fodera's remix is a great spin on the original and sounds amazing in the club."
8. Chemical Brothers - Free Yourself
"The Chem's are back with a massive tune. I love the vocals in this, they sound so weird and rigid. I've always been a huge fan of the Chemical Brothers; I'm so glad they are still making good records!"
9. Secondcity - Tomorrow's World
"Disco and house music is always a good mix, this song has a great blend of both. This song is perfect for pool parties and summer BBQs."
10. Young Romantic - Move (Time To Get Loose)
