Every month, Savoir Flair taps Dubai-based DJ and music producer Chris Degenis (read more about his Evolution DJ Wireless Live Band, a unique, interactive live band concept here), for his newest must-listen music mashups.
Reflecting back on a year’s worth of music, Degenis shares with us that although he’s “not into commercial music”, it was undeniable that female singers dominated the charts in 2015, whether that was Adele or Taylor Swift. “Other honorable music mentions? Justin Beiber (read more on the rise of Justin Beiber, here), Calvin Harris, Mark Ronson, and Ed Shereen also had a great year,” he adds.
When it came to compiling his latest playlist, Degenis opted for a “groovy and elegant” sound perfect for anything from that New Year’s Eve party you’re hosting to the only soundtrack you need for getting ready to hit the town (we’ve got you covered with where to go out in Dubai, here). From old school vibes courtesy of Marvin Gaye to an unexpected remix of ‘Apple Bottom Jeans’, there’s something in here to put a spring in your step as you’re ringing in the new year — or really any other moment in 2016 that requires an amazing soundtrack. Happy New Year, everyone!
