Long Drive Playlist: EDM Edition

Posted at June 18th, 2015 | by Sidhantha Jain | in

It’s summer, so we’re right in the middle of road trip season. Whether you’re hitting the road alone or taking off with your best buddies for a weekend, it’s always a brilliant plan to have some carefully selected tunes to make the trip go down smoothly.


Here’s a list of 10 great road trip EDM songs to help those long stretches of empty highway go by a little more quickly.


  1. Major Lazer – Night Riders feat. Travi$ Scott, 2 Chainz, Pusha T, & Mad Cobra


As its name suggests, this Major Lazer’s track off their latest album is best enjoyed at night on open roads. The contagious tune is topped with rap verses from Hip-Hop heavyweights 2Chainz, PushT and Travi$ Scott, which makes this collaboration sound like a Mustang on steroids.


  1. Above & Beyond – We’re All We Need feat. Zoë Johnston


Sometimes all you need is to take the road to nowhere (read it as no-where or now-here, it’s up to you) with your loved one. Whether lost on the road, in life or both, its times like these where “We’re all we need” is appropriate and makes you realise the power of love.


  1. Calvin Harris – Summer (Dropwizz LoveTrap Remix)



To sum it up perfectly, it’s a 4 minute romantic tale with a heart melting melody and radio friendly vocals. The hook is swagged out with a flute cover of the original version, standing out as a must play track for a long trip with bae.


  1. Coldplay – A Sky Full Of Stars (Hardwell Remix)


This song is what your playlist demands if you’re driving a long distance to be with your better half after months of disunion. The Hardwell beat is so exciting, but at the same time, Chris Martin’s voice is so soothing, it calls for emergency rush of emotions and adds to the artistry of the beautifully diamond encrusted sky above.


  1. Swedish House Mafia – Miami 2 Ibiza feat. Tinie Tempah


I’m quite sure you’re not driving from Miami to Ibiza, but this sing-along song from the Swedish House Mafia is must on your travel playlist! The thumping bass, uplifting feel and snappy rap verses make this classic a fast paced runner. Just make sure you don’t over-speed listening to this!


  1. Cosmic Gate & Emma Hewitt – Going Home (Club Mix)



There’s something effortless, calming and reminiscent of this Cosmic Gate hit. There’s no better feeling than sitting behind the wheel and taking the final trip from the airport to your parent’s house. “Going Home” packs in a great tune with soothing riffs and heavenly voice of Emma Hewit.

  1. Orjan Nilsen – The Late Anthem (Way Too Late Mix)


No one likes driving all night, but sometimes you’ve just got to get there. From Armada’s classic collection, this mix is a perfect cup of coffee to a highway morning.

  1. Zedd – Stay The Night feat. Hayley Williams (Zedd & Kevin Drew Remix)



This remix of Zedd’s global hit is the ultimate windows down, volume up and sing-a-song track! Just queue this up when your eyes are starting to get a bit heavy, it’s revved up composition will wake you up and bring back into your senses

  1. Tiësto – Red Lights


Now, we don’t advocate breaking the law, but if you ever find yourself stuck in a bumper-to-bumper traffic jam during a never ending traffic light, there’s no better soundtrack than Tiesto’s Red Lights.

  1. Dannic & Shermanology – Wait For You (Jewelz & Sparks Remix)


This song is not only a commercially banging track but it carries a message of the one who’s waiting everyday for the night when you return home. Leaving isn’t always easy, and this balanced collaboration of emotions and a festive-y feel is a sublime record for those who’re always on a move.
