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. We update this fortnightly with brand-spanking new beats. (Ps. Or just throw on our 5Why Mixtape below, feat. some of the best new and upcoming tunes from Oz and the world.)
#1 Girls Don’t Cry // Young Franco (feat. Maribelle)
It’s been a little wait for new music from the funk-filled Sydney-producer, but his freshest release featuring the fabulous Maribelle, is a smooth jam that is made for weekends. An infectious bass-line is complimented with Franco’s now somewhat trademark synth sound, in an impressive return. More pls.
#2 Journal Entry // B Wise
A new face on the Aussie hip-hop scene, B Wise’s debut album is something straight off the streets. Boating impressive range across his first full record, what I love about Journal Entry is that it feels like just that. The man himself scribing away, telling a little story with a great piano hook, and subtle yet solid production. Watch this guy blow up over the next 12 months in a real way.
#3 Switch // 6LACK
He’s known for being a bit more of a low-key rapper, and 6LACK continues that for the most part on his new record, East Atlanta Love Letter. But on Switch, a Drake-Non-Stop like beat adds proper depth to the American’s smooth style. It’s still dark and deep, but it’s super relatable and will have you feeling the rhythm as you sip some bevs this weekend.
#4 Summer Holiday // FRITZ
A brilliant bloody summer-is-coming tune this. While it’s absolutely made for road trips, this sunkist indie banger will just get you dancing no matter how you’re feeling. FRITZ’s laidback lyrics and muffled guitar makes for the perfect tune to forget about all your worries and just appreciate how good life is.
#5 Body Move // Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs
BANGER ALERT. Okay, now you’ve been warned I’m shedding all responsibility. Many of you will know TEED’s previous early to mid 2000’s hits, and he’s made a bit of a fresh comeback recently. Body Move is slightly less indie-influenced, and a bit more let’s-get-messed-up in attitude. Featuring a hypnotic drum and techno loop, it’s the perfect song to chuck on as you’re waiting for the Uber.
