When Saints Go Machine leads things off with a cover of “Bittersweet Symphony” – one of the definitive tracks of late 90’s alternative rock. Copenhagen electro duo When Saints Go Machine put their own spacey vibe on the track
Halifax, Nova Scotia DJ Ryan Hemsworth give Pipes‘ track “Sleeping” a deep electronic vibe, giving it a late-night, sensual vibe. Deep bass and heavy hip hop style instrumentals give this slow jam some serious muscle.
Punk supergroup OFF! has members from that count the likes of Black Flag, Circle Jerks and Burning Bridges as past projects. “King Kong Brigade” hits fast and hard with serious attitude befitting the group’s pedigree.
Mysto & Pizzi‘s remix of Steve Aoki‘s club banger “Cudi the Kid” gets things moving with a massive trance melody. With vocals from the track’s namesake, Kid Cudi, this one’s sure to be a crowd pleaser.
Magic Wands deliver the second of this playlist’s covers, with an excellent rendition of Madonna‘s hit “Burning Up,” which was off her debut self-title album way back in 1983! The track sounds just as fresh now as it did back then.
Doseone wraps things up on a laid back note. Their track “Last Life” is catchy psychedelic synth pop track perfect for being outside on a sunny day.
