Woah hows that weather eh?! Seems it's either rays of sunshine and happiness or grey downbeat gloom here in Wellington. Which brings us to the this week's playlist, a mix of down-beat and dance.
Kicking off the list this week we have three tracks from the new Late night Tales compilation by Nightmares on Wax. Late Night Tales is a compilation series similar to the classic Back to Mine series. They invite the world's best artists to delve deep into their music collections to create the ultimate "late night" selection. The series features expertly curated mixes by the likes of MGMT, The Flaming Lips, Metronomy, Groove Armada and more top artists.
As you can guess by the name all the tracks are in the downbeat genre but not without a great heaping of groove and soul.
My top 3 from the album are:
- Midnight Maruaders by Joe Dukie & Fitchie
- California Suite - Vagabound mix by King Kooba
- Canta Milla by Tranquility Bass
Omi has a new track out called Hula Hoop. It's a good Follow on from his hit Cheerleader (Felix Jaehn Remix). Hula hoop has all the trademarks of an Omi track, catchy pop beats, that summer jamaican sound and more more horns.
The final track this week is Easy love by Sigala. It's a big banging dance number with a classic sample from ABC by the Jackson 5. Pretty hard to go wrong with such a classic hook.
Hopefully next week is all sunshine and we can do a summer summer playlist. Enjoy
