It’s a necessity in life, pre’s, and while warming up for the main event that your weekend mischief is based on, you don’t want to be feeling flat.
And while pre’s are mainly designed to be a cheap way to
line your liver have a responsible drink or two before you hit that house party, gig or birthday bevs, it’s important to have a solid soundtrack.
And these cracking choons will make sure you’re on a fitting level while sipping on your drink of choice. So kick bloody back, and throw these guaranteed good-vibers into your pre-game playlist. (Ps. Or just throw on our 5Why Mixtape below, feat. some of the best new and upcoming tunes from Oz and the world.)
#1 I Know How It Goes // Nina Las Vegas (ft. Vera Blue & Ecca Vandal)
If you’re about to hit the town for a big one, this an absolute must play. NLV’s first EP has certainly got her trademark dance-bounce style, featuring the vocals of two of our very own powerful Aussie females in Vera Blue Ecca Vandal. It’s a perfect mix of subtlety and hype, which will provide plenty of good vibes, without being a full on head banger.
#2 Flexin’ // Tkay Maidza (ft. Duckwrth)
It’s the first release from the Adelaide pocket-rocket in a few years, but wowwwzers. She brings the rhymes here. In a fire track that is best played just before leaving your place for the club/bar/party, it also features rising American Duckwrth who is surely one of the best young rappers going around right now. She keeps that electronic feel from her earlier work, mixing that with your more expected hip hop beats. SHE’S BACK.
#3 Wish You Were Here // Set Mo
They just keep dropping damn tunes, the Set Mo lads. This one comes with a bit of a disclaimer, though. If you’re missing a particular friend or loved one, maybe fresh out of a break up, just beware that these lyrics could hit ‘ya right in the feels. However, the melodic piano drop and club feel to this one will pull even the saddest to new life. It’s got a real positive energy that continues to build a fab resume for the duo.
#4 I Might Need Security // Chance The Rapper
Now with the above said, if you are freshly emotional or pissed off with someone, play this tune right after. It’s been a long time coming for Chance, but his new music definitely hits the spot. In Security he continues to prove that he is one of the finest lyricists in the game, and it’s worth actually listening to what he has to say. The tune is laced with Fuck You’s left right and centre that are a great mix with drink in hand. Relatable, smart and banging.
#5 Hip Shakin’ Mumma // Alex Preston
A new one on our radar, Alex Preston’s tune is part of a three-track EP which he’s just released – and is absolutely made for #goodvibesonly. Mixing up elements of disco, tech and house, the whole EP is a fab ride. HSM is the standout on the release, blending lead guitars with disco samples and a super upbeat tempo. I can see huge things from this.
