spring has sprung playlist

Tulips are sprouting, cherry trees are blossoming, the air smells sweet....spring is happening in a big way, and not a moment too soon. Some of us have signed up for marathons and now that hibernation is over it's time to get serious about training.

In order to celebrate the longer days and warmer weather, check out this playlist filled with upbeat, dreamy music to match the anticipation of sweet and sweaty days around the corner. Expect some (ahem, a lot of) electro...this playlist may make you want to quit your job, buy a backpack, head to Krabi and start dancing inappropriately with some Australians you met 32 minutes previously in a hostel line up (not that there's anything wrong with that).

spring has sprung playlist

chris malinchak - so good to me

I first heard this song on Hype Machine and was immediately obsessed - it has become the soundtrack to my morning routine before I run out the door each day. Good news: it was just released on iTunes as part of the new Pete Tong album - every track is awesome.

ellie goulding - anything can happen (blood diamonds remix)

I already had a deep love affair with this song - and then I heard this remix at spin class one day. WINNER WINNER CHICKEN DINNER.

disclosure - latch featuring sam smith

90's vocal R&B (I get kind of a Crystal Waters vibe) mixed with ambient electro = major sexy time. Don't blame me if you can't stop putting this on repeat...it has highly addictive properties and has been known to start dance parties. You've been warned.

m83 - reunion (mylo remix)

My favourite M83 song has been remastered by my favourite remix-centric DJ. The results are....mixed. Yes, that just happened.

c2c - delta 

When I first heard this, I wasn't sure if I was diggin' it. Then I played it running one day - the energy of Basement Jaxx with the weirdness of The Flaming Lips kept my interest piqued through two tough hills. Bonus points: they're French (because that counts for something, right?)

two door cinema club - something good can work (rac remix)

Something about this remix is just happy - every time I hear it I am instantly lifted into the clouds. It's the ultimate bad-mood buster if you're having an off-day.

icona pop - i don't care feat. charli xcx

This song has been floating around the zeitgeist for awhile, but ever since it was played on HBO's "Girls" it has hit critical mass. Yes, it's kinda tacky. Yes, the lyrics are juvenile. Yes, it's played out. My rebuttal? Who cares.

rac - hollywood feat. penguin prison

This song is pure cheesy Ibiza-infused good times. Sometimes a little fromage is a good thing.

tegan and sara - i'm not your hero

I know what you're thinking - Tegan and Sara are better for depressing conversations at a coffee shop than on a run playlist. That is, until they got electronic music god David Guetta to produce their latest album. Get into it.

haim - falling

HAIM is my new favourite band, full stop. This track is my current fave...if they'd only do a full tour of North America, I'd be the happiest lady around. Come to Vancouver already!

major lazer - get free feat. amber of the dirty projectors

Okay, full disclosure: I have put this song on a previous playlist. Sometimes, however, a song is so effing incredible that it deserves a double dip. This is one of those rare beauties.

twin shadow - five seconds

If you ever get the chance to see him live, do it. Then message me and we can talk about how your mind is blown and how we can try and put it back together.

bibio -a tout à l'heure

Ambient, swirling bohemia perfect for early summer. Play this on your cool down and dream of sunny days ahead.

Pssst....current state, we are hosting our playlists on 8tracks, but we have something new coming at you soon. Keep your eyes and ears peeled.
