Cosmos Sounds: Summer Vibes

by Panorama Berlin

As soon as spring turns into summer, it’s not only our mood that changes, but also our playlist. Certain songs just seem like they were made for fun in the sun, whether as the soundtrack to laid-back poolside lounging, after-work sundowners on the balcony or barbecues with friends. The perfect compilation of our editorial team’s summer favourites, our Summer Vibes playlist is a vibrant mix of rock, pop, hip-hop and afro beats – from all-time classics such as ‘Underwater Love’ by Smoke City, to ultimate summer hits like ‘Miami’ by Will Smith and current bangers like ‘Coco Mama’ by Dardan. We’re only too happy to share our summer vibes with you, so let’s crank up the volume together. Happy listening!

by Panorama Berlin

German isn’t exactly the most laid-back of languages. For some reason it can often sound stiff, harsh and – it has to be said – somewhat uncool.
