Apple Music’s Summertime Sounds has become the go-to space for all the hottest summer-themed content, and as the weather gets warmer and we inch ever closer towards the best season of the year, Apple Music has round up some of Mzansi’s biggest acts to share the songs they’ll be blasting this summer.
This year’s Summertime Sounds features exclusive guest playlists from K.O, Will Linley, Blxckie, Eloff, Nasty C, Shimza, Tellman, Rooksein, Venom & Shishiliza, Musa Keys and Bye Beneco, as well as Apple Music’s flagship summer playlists Ke Dezemba, Summer Waves, Songs of the Summer, and a brand new playlist called Chill Africa.
“A collection of songs that are largely on my personal rotation when at the gym, driving or just vibing. Also a huge portion of them are records that I’ve encountered at social gatherings, radio and playlists. A selection of sounds that mirrors K.O’s eclectic ear.”
“These are the songs that I’ve been playing the most lately! They feel fun, have such an energy, and make me so happy!”
– Will Linley
“These are the songs I’m currently bumping and will ride with this summer. It’s a super special playlist of songs I listen to especially on the road. I always need one of these bangers to lift up my mood and get me into the zone. Enjoy.”
“Elke song op hierdie playlist het ek gekies omdat ek persoonlik voel dit is die musiek wat my somer vasvang. Ek dink dit is die enigste manier hoe ek vir julle my vakansie kan opsom. Jam saam my uit op ‘n paar lekker treffers.”
“I’m very happy to share this with you all. Whether you’re at a party or on the road, this is the perfect collection of songs to keep your spirits up, and keep you grooving all summer long.”
– Nasty C
“These are the tracks I have been listening to, playing and have been influenced by. They all hold a special place in taking African electronic music to global ears.”
“When I hear the word summer I automatically think of the word fun, diversity and for me this list is a representation of that.”
“With our band, Rooksein, consisting of three complex and totally different individuals it is fair to say that we also have a diverse taste in music and style. We are happy and excited to share our own personal summer-time playlist with you, it’s made up of a combination of each member’s favourite summertime songs. The genres of this playlist stretch across the four corners of the earth. We hope you enjoy!”
