I was fully expecting by now a viral summer dance anthem, by an unknown artist, to be smashing the charts, but I don't see any. nocheer.gif

Is there anyone who could give Kungs a run for their money this year?

Here's a reminder of what was played everywhere last summer from the UK Charts;

It has been a quiet summer for music.

EDIT: Wait no, scrap that. Katie Price's 'I Got U' is clearly THAT summer banger we've all been waiting for.

Ah that changes everything! laugh.gif

Yes I would agree about the staleness of the chart too.

Despacito is the summer smash of 2017.

I guess Mama is the closest we have to a big dance hit right now (hardly a great track to define 2017 is it).

Instruction is the liveliest dance song we've had in a long time with a possibility to become big....looking for that to become the big summer dance hit eventually.

'Despacito' is clearly this year's 'song of the summer' in the same way 'One Dance' was last year's.

It appears that bangers aren't really in-trend at the moment though when instead we have tropical house, future bass and R&B/urban doing well.

All the year's big defining summer anthems I feel are going to be urban actually, we have 'Despacito' (reggaeton), 'Wild Thoughts' (R&B/Latin influence), 'I'm the One' and 'Unforgettable' (hip-hop) which I feel will all go down as the soundtrack to Summer 2017.

But these artists you mentioned, Rudimental, Jonas Blue and Jax Jones are already established artists.

I want to see an unknown artist whose never been in the Top 10 before come along and blow us away.

I was gonna say surely 'Despacito' has that wrapped up? laugh.gif

I suppose we don't have a major out and out dance hit for this summer - the likes of Mama and Came Here For Love probably won't be remembered well in 5 years time I'd imagine. But I think 'bangerz' haven't been the flavour of 2017 so it wouldn't feel right to have one represent the summer.

I would too! But the likelihood of that happening these days is extremely unlikely now OA/OS has been done away with. Kungs got very lucky that R1 picked it up iirc & it was popular enough to take off.

this is what I think too. 2017 won't be remembered for its dance music, it'll be remembered for Ed Sheeran, Drake, Stormzy, Kendrick, Justin Bieber and DJ Khaled.

Something has to change, and I don't mean the likes of established producers Calvin Harris and David Guetta riding on the urban trends.

Anyway, if anyone's looking for summer bangers (which won't necessarily chart high or at all) I recommend:

Jax Jones - Instruction
Lucas & Steve - Up Till Dawn (On The Move)
DJ Licious - I Hear You Calling
John Gibbons - P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing)
Danny L Harle - 1UL
Bakermat feat. Kiesza - Don't Want You Back
Duke Dumont & Gorgon City - Real Life
Oliver Moldan - High & Low

The closest thing we have to a summer banger that will chart well is Sigala's Came Here For Love.

Its a bit like how 2009 is not really remembered for dance music but more for urban and pop.

It's interesting that Calvin Harris and David Guetta are still getting top 10 hits even when their previous popular styles of music have completely passed. You'd think we'd phase them out by now?

Also Despacito is still #1 which very much makes it a summer hit - it's clearly a song made for the sun - aka summer banger.

Although for the U.K. I would say Ed Sheeran, Stormzy, DJ Khalad, Justin Biebar everywhere and Despacito.

DAMN has been my personal highlight although not a massive success in the U.K. Can't say I'll be placing Drake as a memory of 2017. More a relief that he's not going to fluke more success in our charts like he managed in 2016.

So everyone is expecting Instruction to flop then sad.gif

And also Watermat ft Kelli Leigh - Won't Stop and Icarus - King Kong I will add to the list. The latter is daytime playlisted on radio 1 but is unlikely to make top 40 officially sadly sad.gif
