Such are a few of our musical thoughts right now. And, a little trivia: by what nom de plume does current favorite electro pop producer Harley Streten go? (Hint: it’s also the title of Kulkid’s Bon Iver remix). For the zeigeist’s response, take a listen to exclusive TRENDMIX Summer Crushin’ by DJ/artist/producer SASH, who curated some of the season’s best (and a few great oldies). Some things are for certain: remixes rule, house is blue chip, Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories is solid gold and if these dance tracks don’t get you through this heat I don’t know will. Oh, and love is in the air. Enjoy!

Is Jai Paul the new Prince? Will Duck Sauce claim Record of the Summer with their instant classic “It’s You”? Is trap…still happening?
