Hot Summer 2016 Playlist by DJ Gregg Ambient

July 2016 here in our company’s headquarters of Central New Jersey has literally been steaming hot with daily temperatures averaging 95 degrees.  In this blog, Ambient DJ founder Gregg Hollmann (aka DJ Gregg Ambient) shares his top songs of Hot Summer 2016.

Gregg’s selections span pop, electronic, hip hop, Latin, deep house, soca and a Guns N’ Roses throwback (they are currently on tour).   We also debut a new feature in this blog – a suggested “DO NOT PLAY” track!  Immediately below the playlist is a link where you can listen to the playlist (unmixed) on Spotify.  Enjoy and please comment with your own favorite songs of Summer 2016!
