Playlist: DJMG's perfect fall playlist
"Fall is on its fast paced way to bring the darkness in our lives, sucking the last bits of energy that we have left after hectic and depressing work, school or any other week. Moreover, the Finnish summer has been far from the warmness that we have so eagerly been expecting.
Luckily 2015 in its entirety came about. This year has brought me various musical gems, old and new ones, which have kept my spirit high and helped me to find that omni-genre style which has been missing from my sets for quite a while. The last 3 years have been incredibly passive for me in terms of my style development. I have been crate digging for new songs, developing new styles of playing records, learning new production techniques and scouting for new genres which to try out. However, results have been weak to say the least. Even though I have played occasional gigs, I realised that my style did not develop to any direction. However, this year has definitely been a game changer.
And guess what? I will share my top 5 songs which will definitely lift you spirits as way to fight the long, dark fall. Don’t worry, the list below pretty much sums up every ingredient needed for that. "
1. BLENDE FAKE LOVE
This one is a personal classic. I remember listening to this track back in 2012, but I did not really listen to it. It had this cool filter-house vibe to it but I missed the small details within the song. 3 years later I realised what I’ve missed and decided that this should never be forgotten again. This one brightens up my day as well as gives my sets that great transition moment from other genres.
2. COSMO'S MIDNIGHT WALK WITH ME (feat. KUČKA)
The minimalist style of Cosmo’s midnight is incredibly addictive and in this piece, with immaculate vocals by KUČKA, this duo simply mastered this song. Great song for making everyone feel good.
3. CLEAN BANDIT STRONGER (Vindata Remix)
Oh….my….lord. If this song will not make you go ape shit then I don’t know what will. Vindata perfected this to the point where no other remix could even compete. Mad props and respect for making the original song even bigger.
4. ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT PEOPLE EVERYDAY (Metamorphosis Mix)
I simply cannot cope with the darkness without the golden 90’s. Whether its 2am or 3pm, this sets a smile on my face every – single – time! An excellent addition to every set imaginable (oh yes, EVERY set!)
5. WE MEAN DISCO DANCING MACHINE (Wacko Jacko EDM Remix)
What I’ve learned from electronic dance music during these past years, is the importance of simplicity. Too much pumped into one song is too much. Wacko Jacko managed to bring about the best bits from the original song and add that hooking edge through the use of bass. This song simply rocks the joint every time I play it, making the dancefloor to self-immolate in the process.
