This unabashedly commercial set kicks off with the would-be/should-be summertime hit 'Good Time' by the former lead singer of the Gap Band, Charlie Wilson. While the original is outstanding in its own right, the Moto Blanco remix adds that extra summer feelgood-ishness that makes you want to get up and DANCE! I just wish there was a full version available but I'll take whatever I can get because this song is that good.
The overall tone of this mix jumps from one style to another. It features EDM, House, Trap and Reggaeton; basically all the current flavors of the moment.
I have yet again provided an alternate mix to the song of the summer "Despacito", which has gone on to be the most streamed song like ever. For those of us that grew up during the "Macarena" craze in the 90's, Despacito is the equivalent. I decided it was worth taking that trip down memory lane, so I've also included the awesome remix of Macarena by DJ Belindo, which is guaranteed to put you in the mood.
I have been all over "The Sugar Shack" by would-be country singer Tami. I don't know much about her but this song has been on my radar for a while now but I haven't been able to fit it in anywhere. It's on a meteoric trajectory on the Billboard Club chart so I bit the bullet and managed to work in the catchy re-work by DJ Tracy Young.
Another tune I can't get enough of is "Don't Want You Back" by Bakermat featuring the very talented Kiesza. We haven't heard much from her in a while, but if this is the beginning of things to come; there's much to look forward to.
Overall, this entire mix smacks with all of your favorites re-worked for the dancefloor. I hope you have as much fun listening to it as I did putting it together.
That's all I got for today. I'll be back next week with the darker side of summer. Until then...ENJOY!
