STAFF PICKS: Sounds like… Summer
Everyone has a song that symbolises summer. Whether it relives a beloved summer memory, is an exciting discovery from a recent festival, or captures that feeling of kicking back in the sun and sipping on an aperol spritz.
See what soundtracks the T&F team’s summer in our latest instalment of STAFF PICKS:
MARC TANZMANN – HEAD OF MUSIC/MUSIC SUPERVISOR
Tycho – “Awake”
This song is self-explanatory….
ANNA MURAKAMI – MUSIC PRODUCTION COORDINATOR
Scott McKenzie – “San Francisco”
Visiting San Francisco in the summer whilst wearing flowers in my hair and playing this song is on my bucket list!
HATTIE LONG – MUSIC RESEARCHER
Confidence Man – “Out the Window”
My hot summer pick is Out The Window by Confidence Man. That whole album blew my tiny mind last year with its genre-merging joy and their live shows are unreal. This track switches between house banger and gospel singalong so effortlessly that it can’t help but bring out the sunshine wherever I hear it.
KATE SZKOLNY-APSEY – MUSIC RESEARCHER
Shaun Escoffery – “Days Like This (Spinna & Ticklah club mix)”
After boogying to this during one beautiful sunrise at Houghton festival, it sits firmly at the top of my summer playlist.
JERRY WANG – ASSOCIATE MUSIC CONSULTANT
Eddie Cochran – “Summertime Blues”
One of my favourite oldies, really fun to listen to in the summertime and also a great track to play at your summer house party!
BEN ESSER – EXECUTIVE MUSIC PRODUCER
SL2 – “On a Ragga Tip ’97 “
It’s the perfect summer rave track…
LUCIEN BERLEMONT – MUSIC SCOUT
Octave One – “Black Water ft. Ann Saunderson”
This classic masterpiece reminds me of good old summer vibes, one of the most beautiful tracks I have ever heard!
