Memorial Day Weekend is here, and you know what that means: Cookouts, block parties, booze cruises, parades, beach parties, and the warm weather music that comes along with it. Gatherings of friends and family are hard to cater to as everyone has differing music tastes so picking smooth, soulful, upbeat jams is essential to creating a positive environment at your MDW shindig. You want those deep cuts. Plus a few borderline bangers. A mixture between danceable tracks and conversation-friendly slow jams are your best friend in this sort of situation, and we're here to help you make that happen. But no matter what you do... start your day out with the summer/cookout track to end all summer/cookout tracks: "Summertime," baby bird. Summertime.
