Bargrooves returns with ‘Summer Sessions 2016’, a shimmering soundtrack to the season, featuring 30 unmixed tracks plus two bonus DJ mixes. The latest edition in the best-selling series features a handpicked selection of the best house music around this summer, alongside some much-loved classics.
Opening with Fusion Groove Orchestra’s hook-filled Boston Bun remix of “If Only I Could“, the album features the hottest new music from a range of world-class producers including Tim Deluxe, Tommy Bones and Fred Everything, each a purveyor of the finest house and disco-infused music. Other highlights include the glorious classic that is Dimitri From Paris’ re-edit of “Don’t Know Malendro” by DJ Gregory, from the seminal Faya Combo catalogue. ‘Don’t Know Malendro’ epitomises the Bargrooves ethos, with its funky instrumental style, acoustic feel and laidback, quirky grooves.
Also worth listening out for are the timeless “Freedom (Make It Funky)” from Black Magic (Color 4 Frankie’s Dub), Heller & Farley’s “Deep Sensation” (Nick Holder Remix), and the recent Beatport top ten hit from Italian duo Alaia & Gallo featuring Kevin Haden, “Who Is He?” which samples the eternally evocative voice of Bill Withers.
For discerning fans of house music in its many guises, Bargrooves Summer Sessions 2016 provides essential listening for those looking to lose themselves in the sounds of summer. Whether you’re poolside, beach clubbing or road tripping, this album delivers what Bargrooves does best; the perfect tracklist to enhance those long, lazy summer days and nights.
