W elcome to June! We all know that June marks the official start of summer, so it’s time to kick back, relax, and soak up the sun. Summer is all about being surrounded by good vibes– especially good music. That’s why Future House Fridays is back this week with four songs to keep the good vibes going as the weather keeps getting warmer and the days keep getting longer.
First up is Croatia Squad’s single ‘All The Girlz’ off their new EP ‘Back To Life.’ This track is great for summer because it’s got a upbeat, airy, jingle-like tune to it. The vocals are fun and playful– the lyrics call everyone out onto the dance floor. Occasional synths add a nice spontaneity to the track that keep my feet moving. This song is perfect for hanging out with some friends in a backyard on a warm, sunny afternoon.
Next we’ve got Don Diablo’s remix of ‘Never Let You Go’ by UK group Rudimental. This track is relaxing and laid-back. Acoustic guitar creates a gentle melody that’s complemented by a cheerful chorus of vocals that build until the bouncy, futuristic drop. The song is filled with tropical undertones that make this a good-vibes-only classic for the summer.
Third on the playlist is SNBRN’s remix of ‘Activate Me’ by ASTR. This track is definitely the most sensual of the bunch. The deep beat and soothing female a cappella slowly crescendo into a cool climax of funky freshness. This song is great to blast on your car’s speakers with all the windows down while you’re driving a long road this summer.
Lastly, we’ve got Adaptiv’s bootleg of a classic Calvin Harris song, ‘Feel So Close.’ This song is super groovy– it has a minute long intro before Calvin’s vocals kick in. What I really like about this track is the way it oscillates between the bouncy, melodic keyboard of the drop and the smooth, echoey sound of Calvin’s vocals. Although this bootleg is slower than Adaptiv’s other music, the downtempo beat of the track fits nicely with the sexiness of the lyrics.
