ACITM Summer Music Essentials (Pt. 2/2)

Here’s part 2 of the Summer Music Essentials. Enjoy!

If you missed part 1, click here.

Songs Everyone Loves

These tracks are for the people that hate a certain type of genre or for people that hate every single song regardless of what it is. The people that wish the Beatles were still around and take every opportunity to tell you so. These songs are enjoyable for everyone; watch as the foot discreetly starts tapping along to the beat and notice how hours later the stuck in the 70’s music fan is still humming the song they heard in your car.

Calvin Harris feat. Florence Welch “Sweet Nothing” *Diplo Trap Remix*

Diplo knows music, and his rework of the smash hit “Sweet Nothing” is massive. Whenever you get someone chopping up Florence’s beautiful voice, you better hope they know what they’re doing. This is a rip from Annie Mac Show on BBC Radio 1, so if we get an official version, we’ll be sure to update. In the meantime check it out below.

AlunaGeorge “Watching Over You”

I’d be lying if I said AlunaGeorge wasn’t my favorite group currently making music. Yes, they probably surpassed The xx for the time being. Here’s their new track, “Watching Over You,” from the Annie Mac Presents 2012 compilation that dropped October 8th. I’d recommend buying/downloading (I don’t judge) that, featuring songs from Drake, Azealia Banks, M83, TNGHT, Jessie Ware, Diplo, Hot Chip, Nas, Frank Ocean, and A$AP Rocky, with many of them remixed.

They Came, They Played, But They Did Not Conquer- Spring Awakening 2012

DJs Skrillex, Afrojack, Carl Cox, Benny Bennassi and many others made their way to Soldier Field this past weekend for the 1st entirely electronic music festival in the city- Spring Awakening. I watched firsthand as Lollapalooza’s Perry stage has expanded from a small corner stage to a huge canopy-covered house music experience over the past few years, and there is no question in my mind that electronic music has become increasingly mainstream. Spring Awakening may have been the organizer’s response to the growing house music fad, yet still something was missing at the first of its kind music festival last weekend.
