#5. Claudia Bouvette – Cool It
Different-sounding songs – I dig em. Newcomer Claudia Bouvette delivers in spades.
#4. wtr – I Think I Love It
Such a great use of a now-famous sample (taken from Noah Slee + Shiloh Dynasty in DGAF… now if they sampled it from somewhere then that’s too far down the sample train for me to ride).
#3. Ofenbach Feat. Portugal. The Man – We Can Hide Out
I love Ofenbach. I love Portgual. The Man. Together… well it’s nice times indeed.
#2. Martin Garrix Feat. Macklemore & Patrick Stump – Summer Days
I knew the second I saw this lineup that we’d already have our anthem for summer. It’s almost too easy that I don’t want to like it… but goddamn is it ever catchy. Also who doesn’t get at least a little nostalgic anytime Patrick Stump starts belting one out.
#1. Kyan – Like Summer (Colors Version)
I’ve featured this before… but it wasn’t until last week that I discovered the Colors version and it’s well worth a repost. This track is both brilliant and gorgeous. It’s easily moved it’s way into my top 10 songs of the past couple years.
