Soundcloud is over and Spotify is the new playground. This track came out 5 months ago and it’s more than destined for the summer time and beyond, much further beyond. Pretty much like Matt Simmons or many of the other tracks with that beach, tropical, summer feel in mind. It has amassed over 3 Mio plays so far (!!) and is grinding out loads of plays on different college radios and on Spotify on the daily, while it’s still far from peaking! . Funny how that all changed and Spotify alone is the driving force behind this tune, w/o any promotion whatsoever. Let’s see where Spotify pushes this tune to show its dominance and make it among the first tunes to climb the ladder from within Spotify to the outside world…So now here is the first “promotional post” for Sideways which is the very first of many tunes to come by Seaside Highlife. Reminsicent of many things like Milky Chance (Songwriter), Kungs (Horn Drop), Matt Simmons (Tropical Feel) and many more along the lines. Pure summer time feel and feel good fun. Plus that funk feel gives me the goosebumps. “I see you dancing…” Have a greta summer!
Another lovely and super talented Artist we can call ourselves happy to work with. Cajsa Siik – anytime she starts singing and her wispy voice is filling space I want to get up stroked by a feather, take her hand and follow this beautiful lady into the woods. I always imagined she could talk to animals up there in Sweden where she is living. So of course she is talking to trees, too. No doubt. Fun fact I just discovered while writing this post and collecting the links – her label’s name’s Birds Records and I couldn’t think of a better brand to release her brilliant music.
Our beloved producer Duo Lakechild has done some pretty good work with their Remix of Cajsa’s Single “Higher” back in 2014. Check it out if you haven’t already. And another bird tweeted me ‘The YUM YUM’s’ are already working on another version of one of her songs. So exciting how the world is turning!
Talk to Trees is the 1st Single of her upcoming album DOMINO. Can’t wait listen to all the songs.
Oh so many news to tell you! I thought about editing this first post on ChromeMusic about our most favorite project we are working on right now. But I decided to take you with us on this journey and to give you the chance to see our whole story and effort we put in this by heart. You might notice we changed our cover design and hope you like it!
So the news is…The YUM YUM’s are now available on Spotify! Their first Single with the Australian talent Mat McHugh called High Up! is officially out and this is something we want to share with you!
Add the song to your playlist, share it with your friends & make sure to follow The YUM YUM’s & Mat McHugh!

We have finally made a dream come true!
After deejaying and doing edits for a very long time, we (and i mean me, Timo, Tommy & Meskla) finally came up with the idea for a full length Album. We teamed up with our favourite songwriter: Mat McHugh the frontman of the Beautiful Girls, and re-created and re-imagined some of his songs to create something new, an amalgamation of electronic urban sounds with the organic soulful voice of Mat at the centre of it all. And it’s getting a full release later this year, until then we are playing a few gigs live and perfecting the music :) Until then expect a new song every month and the full album and the live shows will be like a YUM YUM Mixtape. Full of Enchantment & Magic!
We had our first song “High Up!” up on the ChromeMusic a few weeks ago, but had to take it down from the blog and from soundcloud etc, bc it’s getting an official release early September. Well this is another favourite of ours. A very minimal approach to one of Mats most beautiful songs. Enjoy A Pocket Full of Shells.

‘Let it go’ including the remix by ‘The YUM YUM’s’ is finally on Spotify!
It’s mostly the best things you have to wait for the longest. This friday the first single “Let it Go” by the German Producer Winterkind together with the American singer songwriter Michael Lane will officially be released. After last years’ online success and going around on youtube for a while the song got stuck in heads of many producers, Dj’s and guys out of the industry. So it’s the generic way to let songs like this one grow and breathe. With this high potential to get on the radio and stay on many summer playlists for a long time this track isn’t meant to be just a one of thing. So it ended finally up in a whole EP including 3 more mixes.
The YUM YUM’s have made it up on this EP as well and just like that you can call it their first official Remix. Read more of the YUM YUM’s here and make sure to keep all the wonderful musicians I am telling you about in mind bc I am pretty sure that’s by far not the end of this story!
Listen to the whole EP on Spotify or pre order the EP instantly!
Hey young world!
We are back babay! The YUM YUM’s & Mat McHugh – [YY:MM]
The Story behind the music: A match made on our music blog!
Mat put that much trust in us and our idea for the remixes that he didn’t hesitate a minute. But we didn’t want to simply remix it and add a beat to that already wonderful, emotionally packed material. We took Mats beautifully crafted vocals & melodies, filled with positive messages, and transported it into new musical landscapes where we re-produced and re-imagined (almost) everything to emphasize the emotional gravitas of Mats music, which then in return prompted Mat to even re-sing most of the material, leading to mostly original music. Here i would like to thank a few people especially who were involved in the process and helped me maintain the course w/o losing focus! I’d like to point out my partners from the almighty Riverside Studio in Berlin, especially Martin the head and chief of Kling Klong Records, Olli Laib, the mad musician who did productions for people like Alle Farben and figuratively everybody else, my long time buddy M-tech/Pitchben who used to be a very well known ITF hiphop DJ and played alongside A-Trak and the likes back in the day, and very much to my partner and my buddy Dominik Graf who is better known as 1/2 of Lakechild , who i also met through the blog 2 years back. They were all crucial and an essential part and framework in helping paint this bigger picture! Thank you all from the heart. You are all part of this!
It amounted to 12 brand-new songs which are being released as an album this September, also entitled “High Up!”
This organic/online collabo between The YUM YUM’s & Mat McHugh, grew into a German/ Australian partnership, that is already planning ahead for more releases and preparing its first Germany & Holland tour this September.
Thanks for taking your time to read it! And ENJOY the song folks! This one’s from the heart!
