A walk in the Park, Volume 274

DAILY WARDEN TRACK: Last weekend I spent some time down in sunny southern Alberta (Medicine Hat) with some family and good friends.  While I was hangin’ with my brother, former Bear DJ Trapper John, we were streaming a radio station based in Amsterdam, and every 90 minutes or so we kept hearing a song that truly blew our minds.  It was so smooth & fun & “Summery” & catchy & enjoyable & addictive that I’ve been waking up with the tune streaming in my brain all week long!  When we checked the station website (Radio 538 Party) we found out it’s #1 in the Netherlands & Belgium right now, and is crushing Europe one nation at a time.  The French artist is known as WATERMÄT and world-renowned DJ / producer, Tiësto, is calling it the “Best Track Of Summer 2014.”  The song is so good it makes me feel like I’m on vacation back in Amsterdam when I hear it, check the delicious video here.  Now… Grab a cool drink, twist a Dutchie, imagine you’re on a beach, click “play,” and turn the volume up to 11 for BULLIT.”
