This is a massive post. 2 parts. Mentally prepare yourself. We’ve picked out essential songs for every single situation you will find yourself in this summer. Guaranteed. Whether you’re: gearing up for a party, crusin’ down Lake Shore Drive, on the beach with friends, driving with people who only like The Beatles and hate everything else, rolling with the OG’s who miss 90′s music, hanging with the homies or trying to impress the ladies, itching for a chance to display your dance moves, or returning home alone after a great Chicago summer night, ACITM has got you covered. A comprehensive Spotify playlist is available at the bottom. Enjoy and feel free to add on!
These are the songs you can get away with playing whenever, wherever during the summer season. Anyone can be at your party or in your car, and they will generally be ok with the tracks. The “I miss the golden era of music” people will even be satisfied.
ACITM where you at? MIA for a bit, traveling everywhere from Miami, Austin, France, Dublin, and Valencia. Back with the music video for A$AP Rocky’s Skrillex produced banger “Wild for the Night.” The video features the boys spending time in the Dominican Republic, riding mini motor cycles through the streets, walking around with strapped 8 year olds as protection, and playing the track for the DR crowd in a small venue, a size neither have seen probably in years. Awesome video, wonder what the budget was on this one. Watch below!
Brazen Detroit rapper Danny Brown will team up with New York producer Baauer for a string of dates this April dubbed “The Worst of Both Worlds” around their respective appearances at this year’s Coachella Festival.
