As I prepare (mentally & musically) to leave for Istanbul, Turkey in about two weeks, I found it very appropriate to write a post with all types of house music…because basically that’s what I’ll be hearing when I travel overseas. I’m definitely looking forward to late nights at Reina and Anjelique overlooking the beautiful Bosphorus – and of course – all the new house music I will be hearing and bringing back with me! So whether you are stuck in the U.S. all summer or not, here’s a little Euro flavor to make you feel like you are on vacation!
European Summer Songs: (Basically, if you want to feel somewhere shall I say “exotic” – listen to and download these goodies)
Gregor Salto’s EP – Horizonte featuring Andalias, Crepusculo, Horizonte (G’s Straight Mix), Okoto, Mundocaso (I recommend downloading the entire album)
My July mix is FINALLY here! House of Hearts will be your newest love affair with dance music.
Download. Listen. and fall in love. xoxo
(Tracklisting to follow shortly)
1. Thomas Gold vs. Matthias Menck- Sky (Nari & Milani Remix) All I have to say is that the first time this song was released, it was such a hit (especially in Europe). The newest remix is back and better than ever. Perfect Summer jam!
2. Yolanda Be Cool & DCup – We no Speak Americano (Chew Fu Rosetta Stone Fix Extended Mix) Featured on my mix “To the Beat, With love… ” We no Speak Americano is fun, quirky, playful and just something you always feel like dancing to. It is being remixed left and right, and so far – these two remixes seem to be something I would put in an upcoming mix..hint hint 🙂 3. Yolanda Be Cool + DCup – We No Speak Americano (Urchins Are Multi-Lingual Remix)
4. Blackfeel Wite – Amnesia (original mix) Featured on Matt Darey’s most recent podcast (110), this semi-dark electronic lounge track will take you on a journey of self-reflection and maybe even relaxation as you listen to the lyrics.
5. Oliver Twizt – You’re Not Alone (Bingo Players Remix) From the original Olive cover, Oliver Twizt (yeah he definitely put a twist on that one) released a bouncy Bingo Players Remix. As I prefer Olive’s soothing vocals over the ones featured on the newest version, this remix is a lot more uplifting than the original.
6. Milk & Sugar – Crazy (Global Mix) Ok I had to include one “crazy” house track in this post. With beats that build, piano, sexy vocals, and a constantly undulating bassline, you might just be tempted to do that [forbidden] fist pump or what I like to call the crazy hair wave. Whatever you do when you dance to house, I’m sure you’ll enjoy this one!
7. John Dahlback vs. Candi Staton – You Got the Valleybrook (Chris Lawyer Birthday Edit) I love John Dahlback and Chris Lawyer. This mashup is an electronic rollercoaster for your ears. It’s popping beats (characteristic of Mr. Dahlback) and Candi Staton’s vocals are a musical delight that trust me…will get stuck in your head.
