In a remastering of the 2009 hit, Calvin Harris is revisiting one of his biggest tracks 10 years later - and giving it a modern 2019 spin. Still fueled by infectious beat drops and the lyrics that we know off by heart, this collection of remixes is giving us all the nostalgia.
Jennifer Lopez Ft. French Montana - Medicine
JLO is back and better than ever. If you thought her vocals alone weren't enough to get you on your feet, add trumpets, a funk-infused beat, and French Montana’s smooth charm. We’re convinced JLO is the medicine to any world problems.
Bazzi - Paradise / Caught In The Fire
Bazzi is back with his unique sound that makes him such a stand out artist. Combining those deep lyrics that get us in our feels with polar opposites that make us want to get on a table and shake what our mama gave us, it’s all sunny when Bazzi is playing. Add to this violins, upbeat tempos and irresistable instrumentals, and you’ve got songs that will define the whole summer.

Tulisa is back, people! The female boss is commanding all attention on this mid-paced, smooth track. Returning to her roots, this song brings us unapologetic realness, honesty, and stays true to exactly who the singer is.
Tom Odell - Summer Day
Sometimes all you need is a Tom Odell playlist to get you through any funk. Bringing us summer in spring on this track, Odell has created a dreamlike instrumental that makes us feel like we’re floating. Paired with his soft vocals and care-free lyrics, and you’ve got the remedy to any cloudy day.
Party Favor, Jet - Dreams
In this electric tune, Party Favor and Jet are taking us on a ride to nowhere, and it feels like a dream. With lyrics that make us want to take risks, and a beat that we have a desire to jam along to all night, and you’ve got the club bop your life has been missing.

Gia Woods is the emerging queer pop star we’re obsessed with. Owning herself in all her beauty, and coming into her own in this track, we’re left craving for more when the captivatingly sexy tune comes to an end.

Big Zuu is proving he’s a force to be reckoned with in this track. Combining compelling lyrics that teach us the beauty is in the grind, powered by a rhythm that’s undeniably smooth, we’re ready to hear so much more from this promising artist.

Former Section Boyz, D Double E, is here with a feature on LITTLEZ brand new track, and it's teasing us with what's to come from his debut mixtape coming later this month. With brazen and confident bars that flow naturally, we’re kept on the edge of what this artist can offer.
Khalid - Free Spirit
Khalid is back with his second studio album, and he’s showing us that the last three years have only seen him grow as an artist. Delivering an album half infused with upbeat and feel good tracks that tell the story of a teen coming of age, followed by songs that allow the artist to open up in ways he never has before, and you’ve got proof that this is an artist whose around for good.

MARINA - LOVE
Including solo hits ‘Handmade Heaven’, ‘Orange Trees’ and ‘Superstar’, MARINA is back and she’s all guards down in this album. Providing a commentary on the horrors that can be modern day life in tracks such as ‘To Be Human’, and then giving us an escape from them in songs such as ‘Enjoy Your Life’, this is an album that finds a balance on highlighting the good and bad, and MARINA does it so damn well.
Circa Waves - What’s It Like Over There?
‘Times Won’t Change Me Now’ was the single that set precedent for the greatness of Circa Waves' third studio album. Continuing to deliver us with indie magic in tracks such as ‘Movies’ and ‘Me, Myself and Hollywood,’ it’s clear this band have the special something that makes all their songs sound like radio hits.
