Turn It Way Up with Pride Beats 2013

By: Scott Ragan

Welcome back to Pride Beats — Gay.net's second annual special section of music featuring essential beats to accompany your Gay Pride experience.

Throughout the summer months of Pride, we'll share new music and videos from the artists and musicians we think you'll love and want to know more about.

Ready to get warmed up? Check out three new tracks below on the Pride Beats playlist that keep us hitting re-peat-peat-peat-peat-peat!


Andreya Triana - "Everything You Never Had" (Breach Remix)

British singer-songwriter Andreya Triana is serving a hefty dose of retro New York house with vocals that sound like a young Aretha Franklin. We can't wait to hear this song blasting loud on a club system — and we hope it's available for purchase soon in the U.S.


The Hood Internet - "Suit & Commercial" (Justin Timberlake vs. Daft Punk)

There has been an astonishing amount of remixes for Daft Punk's "Get Lucky" — and rightfully so — being the "it" single right now. But have you heard Chicago duo The Hood Internet's mash-up that replaces the Pharrell Williams lyrics with JT's? Classy and catchy!


Pretty Lights - "Around The Block" Featuring Talib Kweli

Insanely talented producer Derek Vincent Smith — a.k.a. Pretty Lights — combines a feel-good but edgy combination of hip-hop, funk and glitchy electronic on "Around The Block." Download the track from his official site and get ready to strut your stuff to this exceptional block-rockin' beat.
