With summer in full swing there’s no better time to pick the minds of some of our favourite artists and find out what their all time favourite beach tune is!
There are no rules and with it, local legends Set Mo, Kilter, Nina Las Vegas, Roland Tings and a special guest gave us the one track that’ll fill a dance-floor anytime, anyplace… and not always electronic.
Read to the end to find out what festival they’ll be playing at next month!
Sunlight – Bag Raiders
This track sums up an Aussie summer for me – swimming in the ocean and throwing a frisbee around with friends on the beach. The chorus is so feel good, there’s no way you can’t have a good time when listening to it.
Sunlight ft Gaika & Mista Silva – L-Vis 1990
This slow jam from an otherwise quite clubby producer is the musical equivalent of sea spray on a hot day. The perfect respite as the sun sets on a serious day session with all the punch needed to build anticipation for the night.
Nina Las Vegas
Tirzah – Make It Up
Tirzah’s vocals and production always feel so summer to me, and this one is the ultimate. Subtle enough to relax too, but also energetic enough to dance on the drive to the beach.
Top Loader – Dancing In The Moonlight
I once played this at a small party on a beach in the moonlight – just some very good friends dancing on the sand and jumping in the water. It was an amazing experience, might not work for the day time but for the night its very good stuff.
Nora En Pure – Come With Me
my go to beachside song is come with me by nora en pure. the first time i ever heard it was watching the sunset at the beach and i get sent there in my head every time i hear it
Embrace by PNAU.
It’s a classic, nostalgia wins every time.
The Jillionaire (of Major Lazer) :
My go-to beachside party tune is Party Animal by Charly Black, it gets people dancing every single time, even if they’ve never heard it before.
Erick Sermon & Redman – React
My go-to beach and party tune would have to be “React” by Erick Sermon & Redman. I could be deathly ill and if this song came on, I’d jump up out of bed and start dancing. No joke lol.
Phwoar, they weren’t wrong either! Better news still is you can catch them at this years Up Down Festival in Newcastle next month alongside The Bloody Beetroots Basenji, Carmada and more. Be sure to snap up tickets here.
