Playlist: Chip Merlot's Fall Playlist

"If you're looking to hear these songs on my gigs..

..you're shit out of luck. My five fall picks don't really reflect my live sets, but come from the perspective of what I find myself listening to come fall."

— Chip

1. VERONICA MAGGIO JAG KOMMER

"Like my brother always said, all the best things in life come from Sweden: coffee, vodka, clothing, women, royalty and music. The Swedish Ellie Goulding, Veronica Maggio, has a sweet voice and a classic pop beat. This song works perfectly on those sunny, crisp weekend mornings when you’re sipping on that morning coffee."

2. JACK Ü TO Ü

"The very best from Jack Ü - boy, this track went hard when Rhyme, JYT and myself rocked #NIGHTS at Emo! Big leads and crazy hi-hats. Gets your party night (and me) going like nothing else."

 
The track was released as Swedish House Mafia was breaking up, which gives the track a sense of sadness of its own.

3. CAZZETTE DANCING WITH YOUR GHOST

"I have personally been waiting for this masterpiece. The playful melody of the vocals and the euphoric piano parts in the end get me going every time! Not maybe classic Cazzette but the guys came through beautifully."

4. LUNE LEAVE THE WORLD BEHIND

"No doubt fall is cold and dark, and this is my take on exactly that… Leave The World Behind is originally a track from my all time favorite house group Swedish House Mafia. The boys remade the track and Lune sang the lyrics with her soft voice which fit the mood of the new arrangement perfectly. The track was released as the super group was breaking up, which gives the track a sense of sadness of its own."

5. KYGO NOTHING LEFT

"What does the king of tropical house do in a fall playlist? Well, the Norwegian producer's take on big strings is great, and not too tropical if you ask me. To top it off with his signature soft percussion and that "woah"-shout and some beautiful lyrics really bring this track together. Trust me. the track just works — even in the fall."
