If there’s one thing that always goes down a treat in summer, it’s a good beach party. Sun, sea and splendid sounds are a combination to set the heart skipping, and so a new beach party playlist from DJ Haus is just the ticket. Featured as part of XLR8R’s latest Hi-Five series, the feature sees the London producer name Redlight, Mall Grab and more as his perfect seaside listening.
Judging by his pick of the spectacular “City Jam” by Bristolian beatmaker Redlight as one of his five choices, DJ Haus must like the feeling of the sand between his toes, as the piano-driven instrumental is about as stompy as house music gets, bouncing through four minutes of thudding kicks and euphoria-inducing chords. Not dissimilar in tone, the pounding kicks and bright melodies of Mall Grab’s “Pool Party Music” make the track an excellent example of nominative determinism, with further tracks from HNS-X, Hugo Massien and Cliff Lothar also making the cut.

There’s plenty of beach action available this summer, with festivals and parties all across Europe still to come before the season is out. Croatia alone has the likes of Outlook, Fresh Island, Soundwave and Dimensions over the next few months, whilst there are plenty of beach parties going on in Ibiza as well. Sea Dance in Montenegro is another offering sandy shores, whilst for those of you who liked the tunes but fancy cooler climates, Mall Grab and Redlight will both be about in the UK as well. Redlight plays El Dorado, SW4 and Lockdown, whilst Mall Grab heads up Shall Not Fade’s Day & Night Party at Motion on Saturday 22nd July.
