When the sun starts to shine the people of Melbourne flock to the beach to enjoy the glimpse of hot weather that is upon them. One major hot spot situated right on St Kilda Beach is the very cool restaurant/beach bar called Republica. People were dressed to the nines in their floral jump suits, revealing singlets and the hair and makeup were flawless. If you are looking to people watch and be among the elite crowd of Melbourne, this is definitely the spot for you. Everyone sipped cocktails in the sunshine and enjoyed the beach vibes that Republica emitted. The atmosphere reminded me of a day on a beach in California, the vibes were extremely feel good and carefree which is exactly what you want on the first warm day. For those looking for a fun way to spend your summer days and nights, Republica is definitely the place for you. You can watch the sunset while sipping delicious strawberry margaritas and relax as long as you feel like. So my advice for some fun in the sun is definitely spending a day at Republica on St Kilda Beach.

1) The 1975 – Chocolate
Chill, laid back and perfect for a summer’s day on the beach, The 1975 bring us a tasteful indie rock jam that I guarantee you will love.
2) Deadmau5 – Suckfest9001
What can I say, the Mau5 is good at what he does. Making music comes natural for this guy and Suckfest9001 is a grungy electronic tune that will get your head moving.
3) The Head and The Heart – Shake
This band continues to impress me. Ever since I head their first single “Lost In My Mind” I was completely in love with their music.
4) RAC Feat. Kele & MDNR – Let Go
Indie Electronic Music is popping up everywhere lately and it is only going to get bigger. Such a perfect mix of indie rock and dance music!
5) Of Monsters and Men – Dirty Paws
Peaceful, moving and full of beauty, Dirty Paws is one of the best tracks of 2013.

Chill, relaxing and a refreshing change from my usual hyper love for main stage anthems, Amtrac aces this remix of Two Door Cinema Club’s Handshake. Indie dance continues to weave in and out of the EDM world and I can only see it continuing to grow. Indie rock is the perfect music for anytime a year, any occasion and now with DJ’s incorporating dance music into it, the music is only going to get better. The Irish band Two Door Cinema club does an amazing job of writing lyrics that work well with their choice of background sound, leaving it very easy for any DJ to come in and add some extra productions to the track. They slow down the track leaving you dancing in a dream, a calming summer dream. If you haven’t listened to this remix by Amtrac you must not wait any longer!
