Kungs is the new godfather of French electronic music and, in 2016, was honored as the most Shazam’d artist in the country, thanks to the success of “This Girl (vs Cookin’ On 3 Burners)”. Since then, the radio favorite has hit the north of 6.5 billion streams and earned Diamond status 13 times.
Four years after the release of his career-cementing hit and now 25, Kungs has made appearances at high-profile festivals such as Coachella, Tomorrowland, Ultra Music Festival, and more. He even launched his own Mediterranean-inspired digital fiesta, Club Azur, during the pandemic, which led to the birth of summer 2021’s anthem, “Never Going Home.” This song provided a gateway to her new album, Club Azurewhich features collaborations with Boys Noize, The Knocks, and more.
To celebrate the party-fueled project, Kungs curated an exclusive Orbit playlist for dancing astronaut featuring one of Club Azure“Clap Your Hands,” plus a selection of groovy crate-diggers, including Findlay Brown’s “Promised Land” “Villa Remix,” Liam Doc’s “My Love is Free,” and more.
“For this playlist, I chose songs that I really like and have played a lot this year. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do,” Kungs said. Stream below.
