We all know too well that festival fashion is extremely important, but what really matters to us are the artists you should see. So whether or not you find yourself in the desert in the next two weekends, do yourself a favor and give these tracks a listen.
OUTKAST - explore Big Boi's soundcloud
"Moves Like Ms. Jackson" is a house mash-up of two classic Outkast songs by an artist who still remains nameless to this day. Either way the mashup speaks for itself, and we couldn't be happier that the dynamic duo of Andre 3000 & Big Boi are back!
BANKS - explore her soundcloud
Sexy - Sensual - Seductive. Banks' vocals in "Warm Water" is basically all of the above. Below is a Snakehips Remix of her track that is too groovy for words.
"I Met You" is a collaborative track between Anna Lunoe & Flume, who are both big names coming out of Sydney, Australia. Everything about this track reminds us of taking a trip down memory lane, as the lyrics go, "Why did I met you you then I can’t believe, believe". Be sure to take the time to explore both of their soundcloud accounts because it's truly a goldmine.
RUDIMENTAL + NAS - explore Rudimental's soundcloud
True to the title of the track, "Free" combines the vocals of Emeli Sande & Nas for a powerful, uplifting song. Also worth noting is that this year marks the 20 year anniversary of Nas' Illmatic.
The original is an immediate classic in our books, but Neus' remix of "Happy" gives it a late-night, after the party chill factor. So clap along if you feel that happiness is the truth.
GALANTIS - explore their soundcloud
Galantis is - Christian Karlsson of Miike Snow and Linus Eklow aka Style Of Eye. If that doesn't ring any bells just listen to the track below. New big room house at its best. That drop is like an explosion of energy (and happiness) when you hear it live.
HOT SINCE 82 - explore his soundcloud
Deep house has never been hotter. "The End."
"Without You" is the track everyone needs post-break-up. "If only you can see the future is all yours now cuz I'll know I'll be higher without you now...". Even if you're "over it," who doesn't need a feel-good reminder?
SHLOHMO - explore his soundcloud
Just let this one take you on a journey. Sometimes if you can't find the right words to say (or text), it is just better to say it with music - props Shlohmo, props.
DUKE DUMONT - explore his soundcloud
"Ask me what I did with my life. I spend it with you..." Play this song with the ones you love and immediately you'll be singing the lyrics out loud to each other. Don't be shy, we got U.
