Your Ultimate Labor Day Playlist, Curated by Jauz

What’s up, betches and bros. It’s your favorite (and only) Betches music correspondent, Sgt. Olivia Betchson, here. Now, I hate to disappoint you, but I won’t be doing a new music roundup today because I will be getting drunk responsibly inebriated at Ezoo. However, that doesn’t mean I am leaving you high and dry without any cool jams on this most important of Fridays. Instead of me telling you what to listen to this weekend, I’ve enlisted my close personal friend and accomplished DJ, Jauz, to make a Labor Day playlist for you all. YES, Jauz. (No, we are not really close personal friends… yet.)

Who’s Jauz? Well, he’s a 24-year-old (f*ck, I need to be doing more with my life) DJ who’s played at festivals like Hard Summer, Ultra, and now Electric Zoo. Some of his most popular hits include “Magic” with Marshmello and “Feel The Volume”. Even if you don’t know either of those songs by name (which I venture would apply to many of us), you’ve definitely heard them before. So, given that we are about to enter a three-day weekend full of partying and electronic music, who better to curate a Labor Day playlist than an accomplished and talented electronic DJ and producer? Nobody—I answered my own question. It was rhetorical.

So yeah, I asked Jauz to curate a special Labor Day playlist for us. This awesome playlist has many names you’ll recognize, like Kiiara, Krewella, Marshmello, Diplo, and a hell of a lot more. Listen to it below. You can follow Jauz on Instagram at @jauzofficial, and be sure to check out his new album, The Wise And The Wicked, out now! And follow Betches on Spotify for more curated playlists, all my new music picks, and more. And follow me on Instagram @sarafcarter for all my Electric Zoo debauchery. IDK, I just felt like if everybody’s getting a follow shout-out, I might as well give myself one. But anyway, listen to the playlist. You’ll like it, it’s sweet.

Your Ultimate Summer 2017 Playlist

It’s almost the first weekend of summer (but really, hasn’t it been summer since Memorial Day?), and you know what that means: drinking. Lots of it. Drinking outside. Drinking inside. Drinking while you prepare to do more drinking at a bar. Basically the point is, you’re probably scheduled to have way more fun than you’ve been having all winter. And now, we’ve got the perfect playlist to serve as the soundtrack to your drinking summer. It comes straight from the mouth (uh, smile?) of Marshmello, the enigmatic producer who is taking the electronic world by storm. You’ve probably heard his music, even if you haven’t physically seen a face to put the music to—he’s known for his marshmallow helmet with two blacked-out eyes and a smile. But you’ve no doubt heard “Alone” and “Moving On”. As we wrote in our Governors Ball review, if we had to pick one word to describe Marshmello’s music (like, absolutely had to pick only one), we’d pick “fun.” So who better to create your summer 2017 playlist than Marshmello himself? Answer: nobody. Here’s Marshmello’s exclusive Betches playlist. You’ll notice that it’s not super long, and that’s because we know you all have music ADD anyway.

Check out the playlist below and be sure to get Marshmello’s album, JoytimeIt is exactly what the name implies.
