Summer is in full swing, which means it’s time for the latest installment of DJ Times & SKAM Artist’s Summer Jams 2015 playlist!
This week’s picks come from frequent America’s Best DJ nominee Vice. The seasoned record spinner and producer is a sonic chameleon, always managing to keep his mixes fresh by avoiding being pigeonholed into a single genre. Spending this summer with a constant set of gigs at Las Vegas mainstays like Marquee and Tao (as well as a full slate of tour dates across the country), the Los Angeles-native took time out to name his biggest tracks of the season. Peep them all below.
Vice – “Find A Way”
“Inspired by a recent trip to Africa, I started messing around with some vocals chants. I reached out to vocalist Gary Pine, and the rest is history! Grab a copy of the record July 17 on iTunes!”
Years & Years – “King”
“Such a dope and super catchy song!”
Post Malone – “White Iverson”
“Something about this song is so smooth. Already huge in the clubs.”
Gregory Porter – Liquid Spirit (Claptone Remix)
“When you mix a catchy piano riff and vocals that celebrate the ‘liquid spirit,’ you get this amazing record that people are catching on to whenever I play it out!”
Joachim Garraud – “DJ Play That Beat”
I heard my buddy Bad Boy Bill play this out recently and the crowd’s reaction to it was amazing. Going to be huge!”
Vice – “Hard To See”
“Had to round out the list with my rendition of a 90s classic!”
