Top Tune Recap – February 2015

It’s that time again. While it is always difficult to narrow down to ten from all the tracks I’ve listened to over the course of a month, I’ve gone through my posts and have selected my top picks. Here we go:

1. Jack Ü – Take Ü There (feat. Kiesza) (Missy Elliott Remix)
Genre: Electro
How many of you waited for the Jack Ü album to drop, like a kid waiting for xmas? I did! Missy, skrillex, and diplo. Sounds like an instant win to me. Bonus points if you watched the 24 (err, 18) hour Jack Ü live stream.

2. Mad Zach – Kräftig EP
Genre: Grime
This is a talent to watch out for. I cheated a bit since this is an EP and not necessarily a track (let’s call it a really LONG track). Well constructed beats + bass!

3. Seinabo Sey – Hard Time (Dimond Saints) Remix
Genre: Trap
Crank the volume up. Gotta love the kicks and vocals in this one.

4. Parov Stelar – “Clap your hands” (Bart&Baker Remix)
Genre: Electro
I am a sucker for songs with classic flair. Fantastic track with swing elements.

5. Sir Sly – Afterlife (Arcade Fire Cover)
Genre: Indie Pop
Still honored to see this band live. I love the spin they put on an already great song.

6. L’homme aux 4 lettres – Macchiato Girl
Genre: TrapDanceClub
Big beats, bass, and intricate sounds. ‘Nuff said.

7. PAJI – Children Of Love
Genre: House
There should be a genre called Feel-Good House. This falls under that category.

8. PROFF – You Wanna
Genre: Electro House
Ever since I found out about PROFF from Above & Beyond, I’ve been hooked. Another solid track with disco flair.

9. SEQU3l – Booka Booka
Genre: Techno
A track that’s a bit hard to pin down genre-wise. Booka Booka definitely tinkers around trance, progressive, and techno styles. In any event, whatever genre it comes down to, this is definitely a go-to late night party track. Check it out.

10. Y.V.E. 48 – On The Road (Addal Remix)
Genre: House
A summertime house tune guaranteed to get you out of this winter funk.
