Back in June, we teamed up with Splash House artists to bring you the perfect summer pool party playlist. Well, now that summer is winding down (sad face) and the second installment of Splash House is just around the corner, we’ve asked two artists from the August line-up (Jason Bentley and Viceroy) to share some of their favorite end of summer tunes with us (spotify playlist below).
We didn’t think it was possible, but Splash House really out-did themselves this time around. The 3 poolside stages are set to host a variety of artists including 2014 MTV Artist to Watch, FLUME, and former MTVSoundtrack artist, Chromeo (full line-up). If you’re in the Southern California area, and looking for the perfect way to end your summer, this is it! Throw on this playlist and book a trip to join us– tickets and travel packs are still available at splashhouse.com

Poolside – “Do You Believe”
This summer jammer is the essential pool party tune. It has great downtempo vibes and I play it out at most pool parties.
Syn Cole – “Miami 82 (Kygo remix)”
My homie Kygo has been tearing up the feel good dance game. This tune screams tropical dance party like no other!
Viceroy – “The Life ft. Penguin Prison”
My single “The Life” featuring vocals by Penguin Prison just came out and it’s a pool party banger for sure! A little disco never hurt anyone. (editor’s note: WE TOTALLY AGREE)
Diana Ross – “I’m Coming Out”
I play an edit of this classic in a lot of my sets. Everyone knows it and can’t deny it’s true addictiveness. Plus who doesn’t love Diana Ross?
Duke Dumont – “I Got U”
This came out in March, but it is more relevant now than ever. It’s infectious harmonies and tropical lead make it a true contender for song of the summer.
Glen Check – “Pacific (Justin Faust Remix)”
This is a secret weapon in my sets these days. The guitar cuts with the sultry vocals really get your body grooving. I just want to party in the sun when I hear this remix.
Talking Heads – “This Must Be The Place – Live”
This maybe my favorite song of all time. The live recording is incredible and everyone loves dancing to this feel good jam. Perfect for a nice summer drive or pool party. I made an edit for my sets that get people really grooving!
RAC – “Cheap Sunglasses Feat. Matthew Koma”
There’s nothing better than a well written pop tune. My friends RAC have a single out now called Cheap Sunglasses and it’s a tune anyone can throughly enjoy.
War – “Low Rider”
Had to end this list with another one of my favorite classics. Ive been ending my sets with this song. It is truly one of the best summer anthems ever. That Cowbell and bass line are killer!
Also check out Jason’s other current favorites:
Ten Walls – “Walking with Elephants”
Penguin Prison – “All Night Long”
Claude VonStroke – “Califuture ft. Barry Drift”
Sandman, Riverside, Jeremy Ellis, Ayro – “Into Your Story (Kai Alce DISTINCTIVE Remix)”
