December 1st officially ushers in Summer for half of the world, and if you’re lucky enough to be soaking up the sweet sunshine this season brings, then we have the perfect playlist to kick-start the best time of the year. It all begins with a glorious tropical flip of Tegan and Sara courtesy of the ever-creative Manila Killa. It takes quite a bit of ingenuity to transform a track that is rock at its core into colorful electronica, but the young talent has proven himself worthy of official remix status, and a second mention in this week’s playlist. Perhaps a little less of a challenge was bringing the same vibe to Felix Jaehn’s ‘Shine’, however the result from Matoma’s handiwork is no less spectacular in its results. The combination of flute, sax and signature melodies is about as close as you can get to your own personal island paradise in your ears, and it’s a destination we have no intention of leaving anytime soon. Once you’re ready to leave though, the next feature switches things up completely as we get a little deeper and darker with Justin Martin. It’s certainly a staple vibe of the dirtybird label, but as heavy as this VIP rendition of ‘Don’t Go’ can be, there is something undeniably chill about the entire production. Underlying all the change-ups and moments of flair is an addictive beat that takes hold and never lets go for the whole six minute ride.

Our week was made that much better with the news of the latest compilation from our favorite collective Moving CastleThe much anticipated Volume 003 released a few days ago, starring some of the best in the future game. We’ve picked out the chillest material of the bunch, with familiar names like WRLD, Bamf, Jailo, AObeats, Kappa Kavi and Hunt For The Breeze all putting their individual brilliance and unique sounds on display. Though not a part of the collective, Tasmanian producer Akouo has plenty of that on his side as well, which you’ll have no time hearing in his official remix of Gorgon City. The vocal work and catchy beat are so on point in this take on ‘Unmissable’, with the bass implemented to absolute perfection from start to finish. Rounding out the write-up for #110 are a couple of ace bootlegs from DJ AA. It’s been a little while since his last additions to the playlist, but these two will serve as a timely reminder for why we dig his blending abilities each and every time.

Even if the warmer months are half a year away on your side on the globe, we’ll make sure we’re turning the heat up in every week until you get there again. Peace out.
