The Freaks of Nature Tour. The SHM break up. DJ feuds and controversies. EDC New York AND Las Vegas. Tomorrowland. Pryda’s return to the states. These are just a few things that come to mind when we look back on the summer, and suffice it to say, it’s been one of the best and craziest to date. In honor of this record-breaking summer coming to an end, we’ve put together a list of our favorites — the music that summarizes our past couple of months and the memories we’ve made along the way. We hope you enjoy our picks — what tracks will you think of when you look back on Summer 2012?
REBECCA — RÜFÜS – Selena (Frames Remix)
What better way to celebrate Labor Day than with the track that has been my favorite all summer. Check out the rest of the This Summer/Selena EP for a great end of the summer soundtrack.
MELISSA —Sirius XM: Blow Your Head 12 MOOMBAHTON 2k12 MIX
This mix came out 3 months ago & pretty much sums up what I’ve been listening to all summer.
CHLOE — Steve Angello – YEAH (2012 Edit)
Cheers to being super predictable… #SIZEMATTERS
JEROME — Radio INK – Physical (GLOVES remix)
I first heard this track a while back, and listening to it now is just as catchy and refreshing as it was upon my first listen. If only LA summers were as timeless and immutable as “Physical”, but alas, they’re not. Ah well, I’ll drink to summer’s departure this LDW, I suppose, it’s getting too hot anyway.
RUSSELL — Kaskade vs. Qulinez – Stars Troll
Takes me back to EDC Vegas and Freaks of Nature at Staples Center. It was a great summer, thanks Kaskade!
VANESSA — Viceroy – Chase Us Around feat. Madi Diaz
Viceroy’s motto is “Summertime, all the time” so this song is exactly what I want to listen to during the summer months. Go blast Chase Us Around and you’ll know what I’m talking about.
BEN — Delta Heavy x SW4 2012 Mix
Summer is over but that doesn’t mean the bass is going to stop dropping any time soon. Check out this fat mix from Delta Heavy which includes some of the bigger tracks to drop this summer.
ERIKA —Wankelmut – One Day (Reckoning Song – Asaf Avidan & the Mojos)
Number 6 on beatport! One of the Top Ten Ibiza Party tracks!!! I’m in luuuurrve.
DIEGO — Ashford & Simpson – One More Try (Smash Afro Disco Edit – DJ Smash)
Wrap up your summer with a bit of Boogie, courtesy of none other than re-edit champion DJ Smash… It’s sure to make the last ounces of summer sweet & soulful!
LAURA —Sebastian Ingrosso @ EDC 2012
Such an amazing set that will always remind me of Summer 2012. Ingrosso killed it!
