Summertime is in full swing, and we’re here with music for your summer party playlist that will make you look like a musical genius.
After a week hiatus (even I’m too busy to listen to new music sometimes) we’re back with a house party EP from the queen Anna Lunoe, some heavy bass courtesy of Sully and TYNAN, and everything in between.
Check out our favorite new tracks from the past week, and stream the entire playlist below.
Sensu – Issues (ft Ryck Jane)
The captivating producer Sensu is back with another genre-shattering song, this time enlisting Ryck Jane to double up on the girl power. It’s the third track off her debut album Embrace, which is shaping up to be one of the records of the year.
“In the middle of the album process I was very inspired by Asian music and instruments. Due to the fact that my roots are in hip-hop music, I wanted to create a rap song for my album. I just mixed Asian and electronic sounds with hip-hop elements and thought about adding a female MC to make this track complete. – Sensu
Loge21 – Groove404
French producer duo Loge21 is back with another house heater on the unstoppable CONFESSION label. Indistinct lyrics loop over a hypnotic, captivating beat to create a track perfect for those summer house music parties.
Svrcina – Hearing Color
Nashville via Detroit singer-songwriter Molly Svrcina blessed us with one of our favorite electro-pop songs of the year “Insecure” earlier this year. Now her album is here in its entirety, and the rest of it is just as good.
“Hearing Colour came together piece by piece and song by song. The project seemed to grow with me as I was growing personally, and in the span of time it had been created, everything about my perspective had shifted. I was seeing life with a new lens. I began to truly open my eyes and be inspired by the places I went and people I met. The way I viewed others, identified myself, and approached the creative process completely began to change. Though uncomfortable and even painful at times, I ultimately found joy that I hadn’t experienced in a very long time, and as a result, everything about my heart and artistry became lighter, more colorful, and full of anticipation for all that’s ahead.” – Svrcina
ALIGN – Intertwine EP
After a series of phenomenal singles, ALIGN’s Intertwine EP is finally here, and it’s a sonically emotional tour through sound and space.
“When we finally started to pull out of the winter and darker times, I felt like I had found the direction I needed to go. Overall, ‘Intertwine’ holds its name because the more I think about things, the more I realize they’re all connected, and well, intertwined. This EP generally represents a range of emotions that we go through as humans, and how they’re all connected to each other in one way or another. The tracks on ‘Intertwine’ are not without their flaws, and none are perfect, but neither are we — I look at these minor pieces as things to embrace.” – ALIGN
Anna Lunoe – Right Party EP
If you had to pick one EP to party the summer away, this would be it. “303” is already a certified summer hit in its own right, and now producer, tastemaker, and cool mom extraordinaire Anna Lunoe has given us three more bangers for our summer party playlist arsenal.
32Stitches – Are We There Yet (ft BAER)
Rising producer 32Stitches teams up with vocalist BAER for an emotionally driven electro pop track. BAER’s mesmerizingly passionate vocals complement the emotional chord progression, culminating into a future bass drop that carries as much power as the lyrics themselves.
Casual T – Wanderlove?
Austin-based producer and lover of question marks, Casual T is back with “Wanderlove?”, the third and final single from his debut EP Lovers?. The EP is a formative exploration of modern dating, in which Casual T draws from his romantic experiences to create lush soundscapes contrasted with piercing lyrical content. “
Egzod x N3WPORT – Stay The Night (ft Evoke)
It’s a triple threat as Egzod and N3WPORT join forces to produce a melodic bass masterpiece, complete with emotional vocals and lyrics courtesy of Evoke.
“Stay the Night is about seeking completeness from somebody who you know won’t love you. I wrote this song about a real experience I had, where I fell for somebody who I knew in my heart wouldn’t be a long term partner. I just wanted to feel and enjoy it as much as I possibly could while it lasted. Is it so wrong to want to hold on?” – Evoke
Reptile Room – Design
If Atlanta- based electro-pop trio Reptile Room isn’t on your radar, they should be. Their newest single “Design” accompanies the announcement of a new album Jade, which explores lost relationships, addictions, and internal battles, but also finding peace through it all.
Samuel Jack – Feels Like Summer
As the title implies, this is a feel-good summer track from singer-songwriter Samuel Jack. Jack’s rugged, soulful vocals meld with stomping percussion, anthemic melodies and bright brass to craft a catchy summer anthem.
TYNAN – Diggid
You didn’t think we would leave out the weird bass music did you? “Diggid” hones in on TYNAN‘s signature heavy beats and dark trap sounds, and has some absolutely earth-shattering breakdowns.
Sully – Coast to Coast
The dark, gritty energy felt throughout ‘Coast to Coast’ is a reflection of the frustrations Sully was
experiencing prior to producing the track. The legend Liquid Stranger recently played this track out at Spring Awakening, so you know it’s a banger.
“Most of ‘Coast to Coast’ was produced right after I quit my day job at the beginning of the year and up until that point, I was really frustrated with working a job that just paid the bills. It felt like a huge weight was lifted off my shoulders when I got hired as a full-time studio engineer, and ‘Coast to Coast’ was the creation that resulted.“ – Sully
Tyro – Death Rattle
Tyro has been a fixture on River Beats since we discovered him about a year ago. He is back with his newest release “Death Rattle.” 2019 has been a busy year for Tyro with releases dropping almost every month since February. With a classic blend of catchy samples and a vigorous headbanging melody, Tyro steps up to the plate to deliver a heater that will surely get the whole place moving.
These are just a few of the songs in the newest update to Freshly Picked Beats. Be sure to check out the Spotify playlist in its entirety below.
