It’s the penultimate weekend of May which, in UKF’s eyes, makes it officially summer.
Cue another sweet season of festivals, parties, BBQs, beaches, roadtrips, holidays and everything else that rocks about this time of year.
We’re not meteorologists so we have no idea if the weather is going to be any good wherever you are in the world. But we are massive music lovers and we do know one thing implicitly: there is a particular breed of tune that fit the sunny season like snug fitting bikinis and swimming shorts. Tunes that, within a strike of a synth or heave of a horn instantly fit ANY type of activity you’ve got going on over the coming months.
Some bright, breezy and bass-tickled, others surging with vocal or synth-charged emotion… You all know the tunes we’re talking about. And these are just 10 we’ve picked from the vaults that we think will soundtrack your summer perfectly. Hold tight for two more over the coming weeks.
Dust off the sunblock. Don your best pair of Ray Bans. Grab a cool drink. Enjoy…
