About half of the Paramore album applies but "Idle Worship" is the current standout for me

This is only her second track/single. The first ("Fool") was a dead ringer for Sade, but this is excellent walking at dusk music.

Not my summer jams but apparently everyone else's... here comes the reggaeton brigade:

Danny Ocean - Me Rehuso
Maluma - Felices los 4
Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee - Despacito

Maybe not add them to the playlist just acknowledging what's huge this summer in spanish speaking countries.

Support the Orgone and Sacred Paws as well.

I hadn't cared much about Harris before but the three songs released by him, although a bit homogenic in their palette, are amazing. Definitely buying that one when it comes out.

billstevejim, Monday, 29 May 2017 06:10 (four weeks ago) Permalink

being completely disconnected from the current mainstream, I'm glad this thread exists but so far, none of the tracks has made a big impression on me.
until "Rollin", which is pretty cool and DOES have a cool summer vibe (something g-funkish too). I'm not sure it's a great SONG, though.
I'll have to listen to it more.

AlXTC from Paris, Monday, 29 May 2017 13:39 (four weeks ago) Permalink

Listen to Slide and Heatstroke by Calvin Harris. You might like them better and it seems he's doing a full album of g-funk inspired jams.

dance cum rituals (Moka), Monday, 29 May 2017 14:13 (four weeks ago) Permalink

I actually think Rollin is my least favorite of the three singles so far.

AlXTC from Paris, Monday, 29 May 2017 14:21 (four weeks ago) Permalink

Also I know he's not liked at all over here but this one seems to be a decent summer hit and I love it if only for the moodymann sample:

Drake - Passionfruit.

dance cum rituals (Moka), Monday, 29 May 2017 14:27 (four weeks ago) Permalink

oh yes, that one I know and like a lot !
it would be a perfect summer hit imo but I'm not sure it's a hit so far (or has even been released as a single) ?

AlXTC from Paris, Monday, 29 May 2017 14:33 (four weeks ago) Permalink

Afaik it's huge in spotify which seems to be the easiest global metric to use nowadays.

On the US charts it peaked in 8. I'm starting to hear it in Mexico... I don't think it will have the same impact over here as One Dance did but I like it better. One Dance had that syncopated reggaeton/dancehall beat which latin audiences go crazy for which explains its success over here... Passionfruit's backing track is more like lush house and it's overall a more subtle song.

dance cum rituals (Moka), Monday, 29 May 2017 14:41 (four weeks ago) Permalink

they are maybe 15% as good as Fireball by Pitbull. which is my house's new favorite song btw.

You guys are also giving Calvin Harris much more hate than what he deserves. It's not like he's killing puppies, he just makes crappy music and there's much more worse offenders like say, her ex-gf.

Excuse moi but I just heard despacito for the first time today and had to google it to see if it wasn't a straight up cover of el perdon by nicky jam?????? Which cannot be a particularly obscure song since I found it on one of Spotify's top charts playlist a year or two ago.

musically, Sunday, 4 June 2017 23:12 (three weeks ago) Permalink

Srsly listen to it and tell me

https://youtu.be/hXI8RQYC36Q

musically, Sunday, 4 June 2017 23:14 (three weeks ago) Permalink

Is Despacito one of the first reggaeton songs you've heard?

El perdon was also a very popular reggaeton song last year featuring Enrique Iglesias (400M plays in spotify). It doesn't sound like despacito at all, at least for me... it's more that mostly all reggaeton sounds similar because it's very limited in what it can do with its beat and producers are very lazy to do something creative with it.

Listen to the top songs by Maluma or Zion & Lennox or J Balvin and you'll probably think they also sound like Despacito.

dance cum rituals (Moka), Monday, 5 June 2017 15:35 (three weeks ago) Permalink

That's kind of my problem with reggaeton. Does wonders for a latin party but it's generic to the point where every new reggaeton hit replaced the last one.

dance cum rituals (Moka), Monday, 5 June 2017 15:36 (three weeks ago) Permalink

first time i heard "el perdon" i thought it was a remix of enrique's "bailando" b/c some of its lines sound so similar in melody and cadence

dyl, Monday, 5 June 2017 16:45 (three weeks ago) Permalink

I'm no reggaeton expert but I listen to whatever makes it to the chart roundup playlists/global streaming charts/etc, I've never thought that two songs sounded so damn alike until these two though

now that I'm typing this I remember I was in Miami a few weeks ago and a song came on the radio at the restaurant and everyone was jamming to it and I thought "this song sounds a hell of a lot like el perdon" and figured it was some remix or something, obvs it must have been despacito and I had no clue

re: Reggaeton / Despacito - last time reggaeton made a serious chart impact here int he UK AFAICR was in 2005 with 'Gasolina', which I always liked. I prefer the tough, driving sound of that track over the kind I hear on Despacito, which sounds like a track designed by committee to appeal to US pop audiences

Despacito and Shape of You are the big ones over here but both have been around since January so I don't know if they can qualify as Summer jams... I've listened to them so much in parties at this point that it feels like they've been around for years.
