 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]When it comes to house music, the German duo Milk & Sugar is a voice that you can trust to give you good times. Their track Summertime includes all the right and exact ingredients to become the absolute hit for this summer. Soulful male vocal combined with chunky grooves, funky basslines, guitar licks and trumpet riffs. The result is classy, smooth, sexy and absolutely irresistible. On the excellent original if you add two new silky versions you get an instant classic. Superlover remix provides rolling pumping grooves, deep basslines with funky guitar licks, great application of the male vocal and atmosphere that is warm and sunny without doubts. Siege version continues on the deep house sound with more upfront bouncy grooves, fat yummy basslines, less application of the vocal with additional party like voices and overall more eclectic underground reshuffling of the original. It's your summer hit guaranteed. #PureGold Love IT [/content]
