In Chicago – John Summit
If there’s one thing we know about John Summit, it’s that he likes to have a good time, & his ability to make others have a good time always shines through in his music. On his new track, “In Chicago,” he does what he does best making a dance floor ready house track . With a basic but eloquent vocal and some rolling beats & bass-lines, this track will continue to be heard on big stages around the world now that it’s released to the world.
No Gold Teeth – Danger Mouse & Black Thought
Legendary producer and musician, Danger Mouse, has had an incredible career thus far working with some of the biggest artists in the world including The Black Keys, A$AP Rocky, & Adele. His newest project is a collaboration album with The Roots frontman and master rapper, Black Thought. Their first single from the forthcoming project, “No Gold Teeth,” is a great sign of what’s to come with a funky beat, classic sound, and Black Thought’s always powerful flow.

Daydreamer – KC Lights & Leo Stannard
It’s that time of year where we’re starting to see lots of summertime anthems, with “Daydreamer” being one of our favorites so far. This one has some really fun vocals and just the right amount of punchy house-feels to make you wanna move while still being an easier-listening dance tune.
