Platform's Summer Playlist
Five songs that reverberate summer anthems in every beat.
One in a million by Midnight to Monaco
From the album Suicide Produced by the Future Classic on YouTube
A series of staccato sounds that somehow tie together to form a hypnotic rhythm, wonderful for a wind in the hair trip on a long straight country road with lyrics that sow together in a slightly odd, eclectic and existential arrangement.
Always by Panama Sophomore EP
Panama is an electronic band from Sydney, Australia. The band consists of Jarrah McCleary (lead vocals, keys, and guitar) and Tim Commandeur (drums). Panama’s music is a ride on the tempo rollercoaster with slow and reckless rhythm for the track best suited at a drunken weekend on the beach or a drive in the mountains.
Chet Faker - Gold (Flume Re-work)
Gold is the third single by Australian musician Chet Faker from his debut studio album Built on Glass
While the original is a slow masterpiece in itself, the reworked is more about downtempo loving. The tune reminds you of the time you imagined yourself laying in a hammock with the dusk warmth hitting your face, and the cool sea breeze drumming at your feet in the rhythm of the beat.
Faded by Alan Walker
Faded is an electronic ballad by British-born Norwegian EDM artist Alan Walker.
Don’t be mistaken by its slow entrance because the song soon picks up to its intended pace and then it’s no going back. It’s as if the strong percussion wraps itself around you and forces you to move your body to the beat. This music makes you want to drive into the sunset.
Zedd - Beautiful Now ft. Jon Bellion
Beautiful Now is a song by Russian-German musician Zedd featuring vocals from American recording artist Jon Bellion from his second studio album True Colours.
This is the music you need to skinny dip in the moonlight to.
