Sunglasses & swimsuits on. Time to dance around the pool to this summer groove.
Fennec & Wolf:
In 2012 Compuphonic busted his way into every summer playlist with the dreamy-dancey-drenched-in-summer anthem Sunset.
While not as instantaneously ear addictive as Sunset, Radio Atlantis is a solid addition to any summer playlist. It’s the perfect track for the sunshine and friends; whether you’re yachting, cruising along an ocean road, or just gathered in the park tanning and drinking. The track just begs to be played in quality company – and why wouldn’t you wanna share something that sounds so good?
Older RnB fans will notice the sample (Aaliyah’s ‘Rock the Boat’), but I think you’ll agree, even without it this track would still be a summer bomb.
Whenever I left London to visit my family, I got into this habit of sneaking outside after everyone had gone to sleep. I’d sit out in the backgarden, sometimes with a cigarette, and stare up at the sky.
When you live in London you don’t really see any stars because of all the light pollution – so whenever I went home I made sure I undertook my secret stargazing ritual every night. There’s something about stargazing that gives you a sense of perspective – you realise how small we are; on this planet, in this universe and within these moments of time. It would remind me to chill out and just enjoy the small amount of time I’ve been given here.
This track (aptly named Constellation) by Journeyman (who are also from London), reminds me of that same sense of smallness. It’s quite a freeing feeling.
This is one of those songs I keep finding myself listen to over and over- it’s a great deep house track.
When you listen to pop music, everything is kind of given to you on a plate. A good pop song has catchy melodies and lyrics that make you want to hear the song again, all it needs from you is half your focus.
Deep house is different in the sense that it needs time; time to build, time to get under your skin and time to appreciate. Give this song a few listens (preferably with headphones) and see what you think.
