Taste of sounds to come this summer
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.
