There's something very special about the spirit of the West Coast. It is the stomping grounds of hip hop legends and a place where the sun always shines. It's also become a mecca of a new wave of electronic music, housing some of the most innovative sounds from up-and-coming producers that call the "left coast" of the United States home.
In addition, there's nothing quite like summertime enjoying festivals and sounds of the West Coast. Soundtracks range from banging tech house from the likes of Dirtybird and Desert Hearts players to the blissed out bass-infused melodies of ODESZA, Bassnectar and beyond.
There's a little something for everybody, as long as you're out on the dance floor and enjoying the sunshine. Get into the playlist below.
