David Solano (original mix)
Grab your mojito and ceviche; Miami based producer David Solano has a delicious South Beach treat for us in Kaboom. This high octane, high pitch synthy dance floor pleaser has everything you need to get your Friday night going. So, what are you waiting for? Press play and start dancing.
There’s something about indietronica that screams summer time. Something about the light dancy beats, the romantically charged lyrics, and the high pitched synths just make you want to grab that special someone, and dance the night away.
German based indie pop trio Claire have recently released this delectable synth pop gem that not only beckons warm sunny days, but those spent with your sun soaked embraced wrapped around that special someone. Take a listen, then head out and buy this incredible track for your summertime playlist.
Games (I Heart Sharks Remix)
Games (MOWSKYY Remix)
There are certain elements of a laid-back tune that elevate it to the status of summer music. We’re talking beach music, long-drive music, afternoon beers on the porch music. For chill summer sounds, the key ingredient is the beat, so this week we’re celebrating with plenty of infectious jams to enjoy for when the days are long and the sun is smiling down.
What better way to get things started than with a funked out collection from the latest album Dowhatyoulove by Aussie beatmaker Ta-ku. He may be immersed in the thick of winter in his part of the world right now, but he’s got you covered with a heap of dope mixes with that signature Ta-ku polish and future groove. The whole 18 track album is a must-listen for sure, but we’ve narrowed it down to the 6 that will get your summer right. A heap of other artists are in the mix with similar sounding fresh hip-hop beats, but as you work your way through the playlist you’ll hit a selection of downtempo trap and electronic flavours as well.
We’ll keep the amount of reading to a minimum though cos the drinks are getting warm. So sit back, hit that play button and do what you love. Peace out.

Unlock Yr Heart
If you happen to maintain as one of the fortunate people “in the know” about the extremely listenable psych-pop/synth-wave duo Psychic Twin, then we commend your taste and cutting edge eye for up and coming talent. On top of that, if you have been following the New York via Chicago band, specifically front-woman Erin Fein on Facebook, then a few weeks ago you may have received the message asking if we the fans would be interested in a new track. Well, after previous singles “Strangers”, “Dream State” and “Are You Gonna Get Her”, self-released mostly through Bandcamp and via exclusive 7″ vinyl pressings, we were salivating like one of Pavlov’s pitbulls for any sort of new material from the uber-talented pair and our answer was an emphatic “Yes!!!!!”. Finally after a slight wait, “Unlock Yr Heart”, Psychic Twin’s newest single was unearthed through an obscure (to us Americans) German source, and lucky for you, it has landed right here in our Ninja laps. The track begins with pretty synth waves and a bass line a la Visions era Claire Boucher, while being bolstered by Fein’s airy, but penetrating vocals. The track rounds out with a pop sensibility that appeals to so many walks of life, signaling an end to Psychic Twin’s air of underground-ness most likeyl. Enough gushing already, just listen to “Unlock Yr Heart” above, and dig into Psychic Twin’s back catalogue if you have the chance, as they will no doubt begin to surface on many a music publication’s radar in the coming year.
Lana Del Rey
Young & Beautiful (Cedric Gervais Remix
If we had a nickel for every Lana Del Rey remix we’ve heard, we’d have a shit load of nickels. Yes, as music bloggers we hear droves of remixes of popular artists. Lana Del Rey is definitely one of the most remixed (although M83′s Midnight City still holds the record). While some are less than desirable, some grab us by the ear and demand our attention.
That’s exactly what we have for you today. French producer Cedric Gervais has taken some time off from his endless quest for a girl named “Molly” to throw down this energetic vocal house remix of Lana’s “Young and Beautiful.” The uplifting synths and dancy big room beats beg to get play time on dance floors this summer, and they most assuredly will.
