Weekly Playlist: Winter Weather Mix
Unless you happen to be fortunate enough to live in the Southern Hemisphere, it’s been pretty cold lately, especially in the Northeast of the United States. In honor of this bone-chilling, cheek-numbing cold that even has those of us born and raised in the Northeast reaching for ski jackets and thermal-lined hats, I’ve compiled a winter weather mix for the week.
Kicking off the list is Diplo’s new remix of Avicii’s “You Make Me.” The track is sure to make an appearance in sets this festival season, and until then, it just might inspire you to come out from under the blanket. If not, that’s ok because you can still dance to Artificial’s “Prototype” and the Tritonal remix of Armin Van Buuren’s “Won’t Let You Go” while sitting on the couch all bundled up.
The cold-weather party continues with “Thunderbolt” by Justin Prime & Sidney Samson, and then keeps going thanks to Tritonal’s addictive chart-racer, “Electric Glow.” If that’s not enough to get you warmed up and moving, then perhaps you should visit an audiologist to get your hearing checked (once Mother Nature allows the temperature outside to rise, of course). But in the event you’d rather skip the doctor visit, then let the infectious Myon and Shane 54 Summer of Love Mix of “Wings,” originally by Tom Swoon, take you back to the scorching heat and fun-filled nights of summer vacation.
In an effort to keep the summer memories flowing (with a twist), and your body moving, the mix continues on with the twoloud remix of Nervo and Ivan Gough’s “Not Taking This No More" and Kaskade’s mix of Lana Del Rey’s “Young and Beautiful.” And of course, just as you’re moving and really getting into it, I would decide to start wrapping the mix up; but at least you get to come down from the high with Arty’s “Flashback” and close it out with Lancelot’s “Givin’ It Up.”
Overall we’re looking at a solid 44 minutes of music that can (hopefully) take your mind off of the bitter cold that is life in the Northern Hemisphere this winter. Think I missed something? Well that’s not too surprising since it’s only a ten-track mix and there are thousands of different combination options. Nevertheless, I’d be happy to hear about what you think the mix is missing, and why, in the comments below.
