“Next to Me” by Otto Knows:
I love the energy and vibe of this song. The earthy, melodic vocals are incredible as well. Whenever I play it, the crowd goes nuts!
“Genius” by Cazzette:
Cazzette always deliver amazing tracks. They’re one of my favorite duos! This track can’t help but make you smile and dance.
“Sun Is Shining” by Axwell & Ingrosso:
This song has a great sense of euphoria and the uplifting lyrics are sure to put you in a good mood. It was a staple summer track for me.
“Push It (Cazzette vs. iSHi Remix)” by iSHi:
iSHi is a seriously talented guy. I love the hard-driving bassline and trap influences throughout the track. It’s a seriously cool mix.
“Opus” by Eric Prydz: “This one is really special; everyone has been talking about it! The way it builds is really intense.”
“Uma Thurman (Didrick Remix)” by Fall Out Boy:
If you haven’t heard ofDidrick, you need to check him out. He’s a really talented Swedish DJ who put a unique and catchy twist on this track.
“Break Through the Silence” by Martin Garrix vs. Matisse & Sadko:
I really enjoy what Martin does with his music and this was another huge moment for him. The energy paired with the melodic builds is just incredible.
