On the Download II

Lei ChicYour big summer bash is just minutes away and you are calm, cool, and collected.

Your gourmet five-step pupu are more than all bite. Those dragonfruit and mango cocktails you mixed are sure to give your guests a chill. And you’re looking hot in your new silk dress and changeable wrap sandals.

But then a memory stops you cold. The last time you partied, your playlist of Spice Girl mixes and Katherine McPhee remakes put the fun on ice.

Don’t sweat it. We turned to radio personality (and all around personality!) Kathy with a K for her 10 picks to help you heat the beat.

1 – "Love is Found" – Sade

2 – "Three Days" – Jane’s Addiction

3 – "Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains)" – Arcade Fire

4 – "Check the Rhyme" – A Tribe Called Quest

5 – "Flashback" – Fat Freddy’s Drop

6 – "Dream Attack" – New Order

7 - "Summer Rain" – Matthew Morrison

8 - "Call Your Girlfriend" – Robyn

9 – "100%" – Sonic Youth

10 – "Dilly" – Band of Horses

Click here to download Kathy’s entire playlist. Tune in to hear her on KSSK 92-3FM/AM590, 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. Mon. - Fri. or follow her on twitter, @KathyWithaK_.

Earlier, we tapped into mixmasters The Hot Muffins for their picks. Click here for their playlist.
