MIMO - When Music is Your Fix

The August 2015 MIMO Dance/Electronica Playlist

From a deep house reinvention from the world’s richest DJ, to a dream-pop dream team, to a forgotten hip-hop track’s unlikely renaissance, here are five dance/electronica tracks you need to wrap your ears around this month.

Robin Schulz feat. Francesco Yates – “Sugar”

German DJ Robin Schulz cements his status as the king of the remixers by transforming “Suga Suga,” a forgotten 2003 single from Mexican-American rapper Baby Bash, into a 2015 tropical house anthem that will surely be inescapable for whatever’s left of this summer.

Calvin Harris feat. Disciples – “How Deep Is Your Love”

Thankfully not a Bee Gees cover, “How Deep Is Your Love” finds Taylor Swift’s current beau rather belatedly jumping aboard the deep house bandwagon on a more subtle than usual floorfilling collaboration with London newcomers Disciples.

Cyril Hahn feat. Say Lou Lou – “Inferno”

A regular of this feature, Swiss producer Cyril Hahn maintains his winning streak by teaming up with Swedish-Australian twin sisters Say Lou Lou for a blissful blend of dream-pop and 80s electronica which once again makes you wish he’d hurry up and release a full-length album.

Example – “Whisky Story”

An ode to the nights of partying he used to enjoy before becoming a father, the nostalgic “Whisky Story” sees Example return to form on a hangover banger which sounds uncannily like Girls Aloud’s under-rated “Sexy No No No.”

Sinead Harnett – “Do It Anyway”

Early Disclosure vocalist Sinead Harnett continues her bid to become the next featured artist-turned-solo star with “Do It Anyway,” an intriguing statement of independence which segues from moody Lorde-esque R&B to soaring drum ‘n’ bass.

About the Author


Jon O'Brien's love of music began as a six-year-old after becoming bizarrely transfixed with the 80s poodle rock of Heart, Europe and Def Leppard. Switching his attention to pop icon Michael Jackson, he then became addicted to the UK Top 40, becoming a rather pointless walking Wikipedia of chart positions in the process. Driving his poor neighbors up the wall while learning to play the drums as a teen, he toyed with the idea of becoming a musician, but in studying Journalism at the University of Central Lancashire, he realized heÕd rather write about music than perform it. Since then, he's written thousands of reviews and biographies on everything from bubblegum pop to death metal, but electronica remains his main passion, with everything from Aphex Twin to Zero 7 in his spare room-consuming record collection. Jon resides in northwest England near Liverpool.
