It’s Monday – the first full day of Freshers Week and (even more importantly) the first day of Impact Music‘s week of playlists. Today’s theme is, of course, pre-drinks. We’ve all been there: you want to impress your potential new mates with your eclectic music taste but your mind has gone totally blank. Don’t sweat – just head over to Impact Music‘s Spotify account and thank us later. Here’s a taster of what we’ve got to offer…

Tame Impala – The Less I Know The Better

Tame Impala is almost always a safe bet when it comes to playing something that everyone will appreciate. Here’s one to warm up the room. Bonus: if you’re stuck for conversation then you’ll definitely be able distract yourselves with the music video.


Crazy instrumental by KAYTRANADA. You’ll probably hear it and go, “Oh shit THAT song”. If you’ve never heard it before today, you’re welcome.

Dancing On My Own – Robyn

Trouble making friends? Relax – it’s all just around the corner. In the meantime, you can groove your worries away with this modern party classic. Who needs mates when you’ve got Robyn?

Domo Genesis – DAPPER feat. Anderson .Paak

A little bit of soul to prove to everyone that you don’t just listen to the electronic house pop that is shoved down your throat daily. Don’t worry though, we have some of that in the playlist too.

Rae Sremmurd – Look Alive

You can say what you want about Rae Sremmurd but they stay lit. Another party banger from the 21st Century Kriss Kross.

Grimes – Flesh Without Blood

As the night wears on and the drinks start properly flowing, this track by Grimes is perfect for providing everyone in the room with the energy that they need to get up and go out.
