As we ease our way into the long days of summer, I thought I’d share some killer tracks that will keep your party going. Take a listen, and feel free to share some of your favorites in the comments section.

1) Nice7 – Time to Get Physical (Bontan Remix)

Italian producer, Nice7, teams up with north London producer, Bontan, to release one of the catchiest tunes of the year. From the elastic bass line to the melodic vocal hook, everything about this track will have you bobbing your head and wiggling your booty. It’s tough to outmatch Bontan and Pleasurekraft’s widely popular remix of Josh Butler’s “Got a Feeling” from last year, but this tune is definitely up there.

2) Purple Velvet & Amy Lyon – All My Days

“All My Days” is the debut track from Chris James and Lee Dear’s DIY record label, Secret Reel. The swinging number features Scottish American vocalist Amy Lyon, and it seems like the perfect track to close out the Soundwaves boat party. I just ordered this one in the mail, and I can’t wait for it to arrive.

3) Leon Vynehall – Butterflies

Leon Vynehall is one of the hottest producers right now. His mini-album “Music for the Uninvited” is easily one of the best deep house releases of the year, and he’s constantly dropping new EPs and singles. If you like this track, I highly recommend giving his soulful tune “Time” a play.

4) Corrado Bucci – Open Your Eyes

The young Italian producer’s “Open Your Eyes” EP is truly stellar. The title track gives us a solid mix of soulful jazz, anthemic trumpets, and looping bass frenzy. I highly recommend checking out the rest of this EP too.

5) Nadastrom – Fallen Down

The DC duo recently released this sub-bass grinder from their upcoming debut album. Hearing this tune on the U Street Music Hall soundsystem is on my bucket list for the summer.
