Big new tracks this week some from Calvin Harris, Kid Ink, Martin Garrix and more as the summer anthems begin to roll in to the mix.
Calvin Harris is back back with a big new track and there's no doubt it's going to be a big summer anthem - the clue's in the name. For the first time since his hit 'Feel So Close' the superstar DJ has used his own vocals on the song.
Rising British producer Grades has breathed new life into the classic 2001 Aaliyah song 'Rock The Boat' with a big new remix sure to become a summer favourite. "Growing up I was really inspired by how much R&B of the time pushed the boundaries of production and Aaliyah was certainly one of the most gifted vocalists," says Grades, "People would probably put me in the deep house / club scene, but I take influences from everywhere." Hit play and let us know if you think the remix works in the comments below.
17-year-old Dutch superstar DJ Martin Garrix has hooked up with the duo behind hit single 'Tsunami' DVBBS and Sander Van Doorn for yet another new single 'Sundown.' The track follows 'Proxy' - which made it on to our '5 Biggest Songs Of The Week' list last week, and the Firebeatz collaboration 'Helicopter.'
Sevyn Streeter hooked up with Chris Brown for 'It Won't Stop' and Chris Brown hooked up with Kid Ink show 'Show Me' and 'Main Chick,' so it was about time Sevyn and Kid Ink closed up the triangle and graced us with something new. The 'My Own Lane' rapper has just on Streeter's 'nEXT' to play boyfriend in this smooth track.
Another contender for an early Summer 2014 anthem, Duke Dumont's 'I GOT U' is released next week, but first you need to hear this remix from Bondax.The Jax Jones-featuring song has another injection of feel good thanks to Bondax, who has taken the central vocal hook and delivered an uplifting slice of house music.
