Tania & Dave's Summer Playlist

The Púca Records duo share some summer tracks ahead of arkaoda this weekend.

By Staff

Refuge Worldwide return to arkaoda this Saturday for the next instalment of our Neighbourhood Dance series.

Joining the party are Tania Just & Dave, two of the masterminds behind Berlin's beloved Fandango series and Púca Sounds record label, (alongside Mark Gill).

To get into the mood, we asked the duo for some of their favourite summer selections.


C.V. Jørgensen - Bellevue

C.V. Jørgensen is a musical icon in Denmark, especially known for smart lyrics. Bellevue from 1977 is a beautiful track about the good and simple summer Sundays listening to music and smoking joints under the sun.   

Dede - Party (Extended Mix) 

Dede, Mexican-born Swedish singer from the 90s with a lovely Rn'B groove to get the summer party started

Cut 'N' Move - Sunshine

One of my fave to come out of Denmark is 90s house/hip hop group Cut 'N' Move. They were early pioneers of Danish dance music and love most of their stuff. It's smooth, silly, and gets you moving, Sunshine included.

Shakatak - Brazilian Love Affair

Currently playing this one a lot - a George Duke cover also from the 90s. Upbeat summer vibe that brings me straight to Ipanema.  


Gratts feat. Nathan Haines & Mr Beale – Sun Circles (for Leo & Ziggy)

My first pick is from good friend Tristan aka Gratts with a new song he wrote for his two young sons, Leo and Ziggy. It’s a feel-good Balearic house number that has been going down a treat in my sets so far this summer! Lovely remix from Alex Kassian on the flip side too.

Stella – Sentimentale

Still in my record bag since its release last summer.. Stella & The Longos delivered ‘Détends-toi’ with 6 tracks packed with zouk, boogie, and sunshine. Co-produced by Ed Longo, this timeless EP will always feature in my summer playlist. Favorite track is  ‘Sentimentale’.

Precious Bloom – Teka Teki Asmara

Precious Bloom is a music group formed in 2022 in Jakarta, Indonesia by Aradea Barandana and Adinda Dwimadasari.

In this track you hear the beautiful vocals of Adinda recreating the glory days of 80’s Indonesian city pop mixed with Latin jazz elements supplied by Aradea, a well known digger and dance music producer. 

Jogada – Masambakatu (Telephones Sambalearic Street Jam)

Telephones takes us from the beach to the streets and back again with this remix of ‘Masambakatu’. Soft synths combined with drivey percussion & dreamy vocals from Letícia de Sá. Just released a month ago on our label Púca Sounds, ready to be part of your summer playlist!
