Taste of sounds to come this sum­mer

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - News -

IMAG­INE lis­ten­ing to what a pina co­lada tastes like; that’s trop­i­cal house, says mu­sic ex­pert Ty Th­waites.

And deep house is like lis­ten­ing to what chill­ing out with a wine on a Sun­day arvo feels like, with both styles set to take over the air­waves for sum­mer, he pre­dicts.

Th­waites is the morn­ing an­nouncer at Perth ra­dio sta­tion hit92.9 and says house mu­sic has been flavour of the month lately.

He is also pre­dict­ing Justin Beiber’s new trop­i­cal house song Sorry will be hottest hit of the next few months.

“The deep/trop­i­cal house move­ment has a real sum­mery feel,” he said.

“Most of the ma­jor 2015 sum­mer hits have al­ready dropped in line with the Euro­pean sum­mer. They are all build­ing mo­men­tum now into our Aussie sum­mer.”

Led by a bunch of EDM (elec­tronic dance mu­sic ) stars, we can ex­pect to hear artists in­clud­ing Robin Schulz, Kygo, Alex Adair, Duke Du­mont, Di­plo, Klin­gande, Sam Feldt, Felix Jaehn, Dis­clo- sure and our very own Yolanda Be Cool .

“Th­ese guys have el­e­ments of Ar­mand Van Helden, Bob Sin­clair, Mario G and Martin Solveig of days gone, mixed in with their own unique style,” Th­waites said.

“Kygo is a Nor­we­gian lad who is mas­sive in Europe. He has only just started to crack it in Aus­tralia this year with Fire­stone, with vo­cals from Aussie Con­rad Sewell.

“Ger­man Felix Jaehn remixed OMI’s Cheer­leader and turned it into a com­mer­cial suc­cess. Not many peo­ple know it is be­cause of his hand­work. “He has a sec- ond hit in the charts now, Ain’t No­body, do­ing big things.

“An­other Ger­man, Robin Schulz, is my fave by far. Schulz was at Fu­ture Mu­sic ear­lier this year and has al­ready had suc­cess with Prayer in C, Sun Goes Down, Head­lights and Sugar, all in the past 12 months.
