A couple things that have been inescapable this summer, at least for me: 1) the World Cup and 2) the song “Everything Nice” by current FADER cover star Popcaan. I’m not complaining about either; in fact, I couldn’t really dream up a better summer ’14 scenario then sitting in an air-conditioned space with a big TV, soccer game on mute and a Popcaan song playing loudly. Maybe it’s the original “Everything Nice,” or maybe it’s this “World Cup Remix” by Canadian duo Southern Shores, which loosely flips Dubbel Dutch's chewy production into something dreamier and maybe clubbier, while still sounding like it’s meant to be heard with a glass of rum in hand. Southern Shores’ New World EP is out now on Cascine; read our cover story on Popcaan right here.
