After what's seemed like an eternity, summer is finally here. Combine that with the usual silly season shenanigans, and it means that we're getting ready for some serious partying.
The one thing that any party needs, though, is music. We've teamed up with Hennessy to ask ARIA-nominated rapper B Wise for his playlists that set the mood for any occasion — whether for the before party, the party party or the after party.
SETTING THE MOOD: ALTERNATIVE HIP HOP
B Wise checks this playlist as his "personal vibe and taste", while providing a good counterpoint to his own music. "I feel most of my music as an Australian-based rapper feels alternative to the rest of the world."
HYPE MUSIC: BLACK LIVES MATTER
Need to hype yourself up for a night out? Look no further than these songs about empowerment and pride. B Wise says: "the playlist title says it all. Some of the best sounds from Black creators."
TIME TO MOVE: RAP UK
Ready to really get the night started? This selection of UK rap is a sure bet. "When it's time to move like a road man (or hit the gym), this is my vibe."
LOCAL PICKS: A1
This international selection of the hottest hip hop right now is an Australian-curated selection that also includes tunes from homegrown talent. According to B Wise, this playlist "always keeps the big energy up".
HIT THE FLOOR: RAPCAVIAR
You know that time of the night when it's past the point of no return? This is the playlist for that time. "If we partying, this is the first playlist I'm gonna visit."
AFTER PARTY: STRANGE NIGHTS
Naturally, even the after party needs tunes — and this list curated by B Wise himself is sure to strike the right note. "One of those if you know, you know kinda vibes. For the party after the party."
