Every summer, while we’re busy making memories, embarking on long walks and obvs, necking warm beer in a muddy tent, our favourite artists are giving us what we all desperately need to get the most out of the summer vibes: loads of jams.
So with summer so close you can almost taste the inevitable upper lip sweat, we’re getting you in the mood with some seriously huge bangers that should definitely be a part of your ‘Summer 2k17’ playlist.
Prepare to hear these hits being blasted from car radios, at every single BBQ and of course, on the dancefloor of your local Revolution!
Calvin Harris ft. Frank Ocean & Migos – Slide
It seems like Calvin Harris was put on this Earth solely to churn out massive belters, annoy Taylor Swift, and then put out some more massive belters.
And it’s no different with this chilled out anthem, which is guaranteed to get you craving a cocktail at midday.
Zedd ft. Alessia Clara – Stay
Zedd is known for his anthem club tunes, and ‘Stay’ with Alessia Clara is no exception.
There’s no doubt about it, this is a euphoric dose of melancholy and has rightly so, torpedoed straight to the top of the charts where it looks set to ‘Stay’. Geddit?
Kendrick Lamar – Humble
We’re not sure you can really enter summer with any other song.
Take it from us, this 3-minute masterpiece is going to be literally EVERYWHERE this summer.
Mura Mura ft. Charlie XCX – 1 Night
With a melody that just won’t quit, this is a summer hit that’s a little bit impossible to stop listening to.
Seriously, we can’t stop. We haven’t slept for three days. Send help.
Drake – Passionfruit
Drake’s More Life album (mixtape, playlist, whatevs) is already chock-full of summer-ready bangers, but it’s safe to say that ‘Passionfruit’ is an obvious standout.
This is a song so perfect for summer it practically turns up in dodgy sandals and some classic Speedos.
Maggie Rogers – Alaska
If your idea of summer is all about enjoying the great outdoors, strolling through the countryside, and hiking up a gruelling mountain (you absolute sicko), then this is the calming song you NEED not just in your summer, but in your life.
Ed Sheeran – Shape Of You
An underground, tropical-inspired track that you probably haven’t heard yet.
We don’t like to just stick with the mainstream, and with just under 900 million Spotify plays at the time of writing, this is a hit that none of your mates will know about yet.
The Weeknd ft. Daft Punk – I Feel It Coming
When it comes to the songs of summer, Daft Punk are usually always playing a guest role.
And it’s no different here with this summer belter which sounds like Michael Jackson and Toto had a musically-talented baby who can’t get enough of the summer vibes. Good kid.
Major Lazer – Run Up
This island-infused banger is as good as it gets for making you feel summery all year round.
Okay, fine, it probably won’t help when you’re waiting for the bus in February and you’re sure your nose is going to fall off. We’ll give you that one. But it is pretty good.
Paramore – Hard Times
After being your favourite emo band when you were 15, Paramore have only gone and delivered one of the most danceable songs of the summer.
This is a bright, shiny banger that will give you more 80s vibes than a Netflix-marathon of Stranger Things.
Now, this right here is just the start of your perfect summer soundtrack. The trouble is, who has the time to constantly search out the best new bangers?
Well, that’s what we’re here for. Every night we put on a massive party full of some absolute belters for you to attempt to dance along too… ESPECIALLY when you book a massive party with us! Any size, any occasion, any excuse – you bring your mates and we’ll bring the party!
So, without further ado, let’s party, shall we?
