Fourth of July weekend is finally here, but before you bust out the sunscreen and bikini bottoms, the warehouse warrior they call Digital is here to offer up an irie selection of tunes perfect for chilling with the squad by the pool.
Once you’ve had your fun skinny dipping to the grooves, be sure to download the massive 37-track Technique Summer 2016 Album that’s rammed with sizzling drum & bass cuts from the Technique Recordings fam, including an extra-dutty collab between Digital and label boss Simon Bassline Smith on “First World Problem.”
Out now so lock in yours in here and get to jamming.
DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince “Summertime” (Jive, 1991)
This is an easy one. If I’m by the pool it’s got to be sunny vibes, right? Everyone loves this classic summertime tune.
Tarrus Riley “She’s Royal” (VP Records, 2006)
The sun, a cool pool, and reggae music are all perfect matches. Oh, maybe throw a nice cocktail in there too.
Fingers Inc. “Can You Feel It” (Jack Trax, 1989)
This track would be great by a pool in the sun, in the house when it’s cold by the fire, at a rave, chilling with the lady, and pretty much any other situation you can think of.
Soul II Soul “Back To Life” (Virgin, 1989)
This is another easy one. Not only is it a classic, but everybody needs some soul by the pool, innit!
X-Press 2 ft. David Byrne “Lazy” (Skint, 2002)
When you hear this one come on—no matter where you are—you can’t help but sinking into the chill zone. As a matter of fact, I’m lazily chilling to this chilled out track right now.
