Summer is upon us, as the last couple of weeks have proven. Ok, so it’s raining and windy again at the moment, but the sunshine we had just recently is sure to repeat itself in just a month or so, hopefully sooner. Anyway, with that in mind, we thought we’d ask the dynamic duo known as PBR Streetgang to select their top 10 summer jams, so we can enjoy the sunshine with a superb soundtrack and they’ve come up trumps big time with their list…
1. Hatchback – White Diamond
This is a nine-minute slice of Balearic bliss. It still gives me major goosebumps every time I listen to it!

2. Crosby, Stills & Nash – Dark Star
Simply Oooooffff!!!! Need I say anymore?

3. Osunlade – Morning Glory
Taken from one of my favourite albums, this is a serious gem of a summer track.

4. Nuyorican Soul – I Am The Black Gold Of The Sun
When you’re searching for that summer moment, this record will make it all happen!

5. Bill Withers – Use Me
We all love Bill. This record captures and sums up the summer feeling for me!

6. Sun Palace – Rude Movements
This is such a warm summer track, it even has ‘sun’ in the title for Pete’s sake! I couldn’t think of anything better than floating in a pool and listening to this.

7. Earl Flint – People Hold on
For me it’s a slice of Garden Festival memories – great times had to this. One of our favourite festivals we’ve ever played at, and we will be sad to see it go at the end of this July!

8. Soldiers Of Twilight – Believe (PBR Streetgang Remix)
Ok ok yeah it’s a bit of shameless self-promotion but this was a very special remix for us for many reasons and will always remind us of summer.

9. Alena – Learn to Get By (Ron Basejam Remix)
How everyone has slept on this I’ll never understand, but hey at least it’s not overplayed. This basically out-Moodymanns Moodymann. Yup that’s right, that’s what I said! It sounds like a sultry summer storm losing it’s grip half way through and the sun bursting through for a blissful moment.

10. DJ Kaos – Love The Night Away (Tidye Remix)
Almost the epitome of a summer record. Sunshine practically flows out if it!
