Episode: Endless Summer

DJ Pete Savas presents "Press Play" Logo
Endless Summer
It was a long, hot summer, filled with lots of songs with great staying power; so good in fact, they still sound great months later. It doesn't happen often; a full range of songs first finding their way onto the dance scene in Apil, May and June, still charting, getting airplay, club play and requests come fall, but this group surely did. So in the spirit of those days at the beach, by the pool, bar-b-que-ing on the back patio, or just crusing down the highway with the top down and the speakers turned up, I present this collection of chart-toppers (many of which made #1 on the Billboard Dance Chart) for you to use as the blustery weather moves in and the temperatures drop. With any luck, they'll put a spring back in your step, and the sunshine back into your heart. After all, it's an Endless Summer!

The second in a four-episode set, "Freefall" follows "Escape" in style but not necessarily in theme.

There are some definite big hits rolling around in here: Adele's "Rolling In the Deep," Gaga's "Judas," Alex Gaudino's "What a Feeling" (which is sure to be a summer anthem), as well as new songs from Kylie Minogue and Robyn -- both of whom have rocketed into the consciousness of clubbers in the last year, despite their long careers as singers...

DJ Pete Savas presents "Press Play" > Everything Old Is New Again

You can't keep a good song down, or from the hands of remixers! It's something to be grateful for, actually; especially in light of the track listing for this set. Here are some old favorites, made fresh again, and honestly, they've never really sounded better! Spanning eras from the '60's to the '90's, from "classic rock" to "new wave," with artists as diverse as Pink Floyd, Aretha Franklin, Donna Summer, the Eurythmics and David Bowie to name a few, each of these songs has been tremendously influential in their own time...

DJ Pete Savas presents "Press Play" > tech-neeq

Dark, deep, groovy, like molasses for your ears, this is a slice of-tech house through my filter; it's my "tech-neeq." Another episode that has been a long time in the making; this time, it was a combination of technical and system issues, as well as my depression getting the better of me. But here it is, out at last...
