British house producer is gonna make you wish you were always roadtrippin'.
Seems like British house producer Sigala has rays of sun flowing in his veins, as his tunes are always sunny and easy going (just listen to "Easy Love" and "Sweet Lovin'"), which made him an obvious choice when it came to creating a soundtrack for a perfect summer road trip.
But let's hear it from the man himself: "Everyone loves a summer road trip, right? Get the ice pops out; grab your tightest speedo and crank the tunes. I’ve really enjoyed making this little summer playlist. Most of the tracks I’ve chosen because they mean something to me, whether it’s a track that has inspired me, or something from an artist I have met on my travels or have worked with, or just something which brings back good memories. So apologies if I ramble on, but here’s a cheeky few tracks that always put a smile on my face."
Chris Malinchak - "So Good To Me"
The is probably my number 1 favorite summer record of all time, and was one of my main inspirations to start producing the music I make. I just wanted to make tracks that gave me the same feeling this one does when I listen to it.
The Magician ft. Years and Years - "Sunlight" (Blonde Remix)
I remember the first time I heard this. It was playing in a hotel lobby in Dublin, and I was frantically trying to Shazam it to find out which genius created that slick bassline. It turned out to be the guys from Blonde who I had been working with only a few days earlier. I downloaded it straight away and played it in my DJ set that night. We’ve actually just put out the song that I was working on with them at the time, its called "Don’t Need No Money."
Joe Hertz ft. Kaleem Taylor - "Isolate"
That voice! This definitely fits the summer road trip vibe — get me a convertible and fly me to Miami immediately. Since I first heard this, it has been my mission to work with Kaleem Taylor, and I actually managed to only a couple of weeks ago. His voice is even more amazing in person than on record, if that’s even possible. With most artists it’s the other way around, haha.
Ed Sheeran - "I See Fire" (Kygo Remix)
I can't do a summer playlist and not include Kygo really, can I? This was the track that first got me into Kygo — it's sonically stunning. A real eargasm.
Bob Marley & The Wailers ft. LVNDSCAPE & Boiler - "Is This Love"
I always seem to associate songs with the place I first heard them. I heard this for the first time in boiling hot Malta a few weeks back, which was a perfect setting for this summer vibe. So every time I hear it when I’m home in rainy London, it brings me straight back to sunny Malta. What a place!
Sigala - "Give Me Your Love" (The Rooftop Boys Remix)
I’m a massive fan of everything by The Rooftop Boys, ever since I released my first single I’ve wanted a Rooftop Boys Remix as they always absolutely smash it! And we were able to make that happen for my current single "Give Me Your Love". They went for a slightly more chilled approach to the remixes I had heard previously, which is actually ideal as it fits into this playlist perfectly… so thanks boys!
Coldplay – "Hymn for the Weekend" (Seeb Remix)
I’m a massive Coldplay fan; they continuously deliver such bangers. It’s been a life goal to work with Chris Martin, hasn’t happened yet but I'm working on it! This Seeb remix is such a vibe.
Avicii - "Waiting For Love" (Sam Feldt Remix)
I have played a whole bunch of shows with Sam Feldt this summer — he’s an awesome performer and DJ and whenever I play his remix of this in my set it always goes down well, big sing along vibes.
Junior Senior - "Move Your Feet" (Eric Decks & Jay Frog Rework)
What a classic. This is one that’s stood the test of time, and this rework just brings even more life to it. This literally make me want to move my feet as soon as I hear it, but if you’re listening to this while driving I strongly advise not doing that…
"Ain't No Mountain High Enough" ft. Dionne Bromfield [Luca Schreiner Edit]
Another great new approach to a classic record. I play this in my DJ sets and it always goes off! A great way to finish this summer jam! Thanks for listening/reading, see you next time!
