Inspired by DJ Supermarkts comments about the influence of the Westcoast AOR sound on some of today’s bands and artists, I have produced a mix that I hope you will enjoy. It includes some of the bands that the afformentioned DJ namechecked (Chromeo, FM Attack, Rhye), some of the more obvious new exponents of the Westcoast AOR genre (Norwegian Fjords, Ed Motta, Sun Rai, Geyster) as well as some that I consider to be carrying the torch (The Pierces, First Aid Kit, Fleet Foxes).
Full tracklist is:
1. You’ll Be Mine (Xkuse Dance Remix): The Pierces
2. Jane (Eric Seed Italo Remix): Geyster
3. Get Lucky (Vijay & Sofia Zlatko Edit): Daft Punk
4. Forever (Dan Lissvik Remix): Haim
5. Sex on Fire (Vijay & Sofia Zlatko Edit): Kings of Leon
