Mike’s Monday Playlist – 21.04.14

XWHY’s Mike Thomas Provides Your Bank Holiday Soundtrack

A sunny bank holiday weekend warrants an uplifting set of tunes to see you through the day.

If you haven’t been listening to Clean Bandits ‘Rather Be’ on repeat recently, then you’ve been living under a rock. It. Is. Everywhere. Luckily, it’s a great song, so it deserves the airplay. It’s this track that’s propelled them to prominence. Let’s hope they follow it with another just as catchy.

The Guardian summed Dornik up pretty much perfectly when they described him as what Michael Jackson would sound like if he’d worked with Disclosure. Up beat, preppy, cute pop. A great accompaniment to Monday evening cocktails as the sun goes down.

Cali natives Mansions on the Moon are right on the money with this era’s disco sounds. ‘Radio’ is a sweet blend of nostalgia and happiness. It’s pretty hard not to like it. 

Swedis producer Saturday, Monday has nailed it with ‘Headshake’. Julia Spade’s vocals and the toe tapping beat make for a really fun fve minutes.
