The Soundtrack To Your Weekend

14th November 2013 | Posted in Music

Here we are. Another two days of pure work-less bliss!

As always, we're here with a playlist for you to put on and play loud (loud as you can, thanks), with some serious Saturday night tracks at the end, some chilled out house in the middle and a healthy dose of happy feeling Indie vibes to boot

Now, we want to know what you think- so if you reckon we've missed something out, or if you want something in there for next week, give us a tweet at @masdings and we'll see what we can do. We're like the worlds worst radio station request show.

1) Fryars-The Power: Coming off the back of Cool like me, Fryars have released this little gem that's set to get little indie heads spinning in some kind of swallow tattoo fueled hurricane. Don't get us wrong, we're not complaining, we love this track.

2) Rudimental- Free feat Emeli Sande (Roy Davis Jr Remix): Considering Rudimental came out of nowhere a few summer's ago, they're doing pretty well for themselves. Sadly we can't condone this song without the fantastic remix that's been plastered all over it. We saw Rudimental live once. It wasn't too enjoyable unless you like shouting and trumpets.

3) CHVRCHES- Lies (Tourist Remix): We've got an awful lot of time for CHVRCHES. For a Saturday night though, we love the Tourist mix of their freshly released track.

4) Bastille-Of the Night: Right. Let's get a few things straight. The original version of this song by Corona was perfectly good- but fair play to Bastille for having a go at this monster of a 90's dance floor filler- they've added a sad amount of cheese but generally kept it fairly... dance worthy? On second thoughts. Nah. Sorry. We don't really like it that much.

5) SBTRKT-Never Never feat. Sampha: AND BREATHE. Everyone needs to chill out every now and then, and we reckon there aren't many voices better at getting you in a laid back mood than Sampha's. He's already featured with the likes of Drake and Jessie Ware, and this time he's been laced over a pretty trippy beat for the perfect chill out track.

6) Gabriella Aplin-Please Don't Say You Love Me (Cyril Hahn Remix): Look, we really, really, REALLY don't like Gabriella Aplin. She's one of those typical artists who sings about breaking up, making up, or generally, pretty much nothing. ANNOYING. However, thank god Cyril Hahn took pity on her, because he's actually turned one of her songs into a little piece of dynamite. Boom. Yeah we did that. Awkward.

7) Fleetwood Mac-Dreams (Gigamesh remix): Everybody loves a bit of Fleetwood Mac! Come on, don't deny it...

8) Bombay Bicycle Club-Carry me: We love Bombay Bicycle Club, but we love that this sounds nothing like them. Does that make sense? No it doesn't, but oh well. They're taking their sound in a new direction, and if this is anything to go by, it's gonna sound amazing. Again, Indie kids, have a blast.

9)Knife Party-LRAD: This just got awful crazy awful quick. That's what Knife Party do though right? Crazy knife music? Or something... Sounds down right dangerous to us.

10) Sandro Silva & Quintino-Epic: It'd be a shame to let the knifey vibes fade out, so carrying on is this pumpy-jumpy track by Sandro Silva & Quinto, who have names that make them sound like Benidorm Calippo salesmen, or like guys trying to flog beach balls on a beach in Gran Canaria.

11) Kid Cudi-Pursuit of Happiness (Steve Aoki remix): Welcome to the last song of the list. Sorry, we know. It's ok. We're upset too. But what a good way to end it huh? It's a shame Kid Cudi kind of faded into nothing; he was top notch. Much love to Steve Aoki for mixing this up in to a bass fueled sound bomb by the way.

There you have it boys and girls- the playlist to get your weekend off to a flyer. Go out, have fun, be safe, spread some peace and love into the world. Enjoy.
