Australian DJ, Hayden James will be kicking of his summer tour at Lightning in a Bottle this May. In addition, he will be bouncing around the world playing his funkadelic grooves at festivals like Electric Forest, Neon Desert (TX), Longitude Festival (Ireland), Latitude Festival (U.K.), Funk on the Rocks (Red Rocks), Firefly, Dour Festival (Denmark), and Lollapalooza.

To showcase Hayden James, we selected one of his silky smooth funkadelic jams called, ‘Permission to Love’.

Hayden James ‘Permission To Love’

If you were listening to ODESZA’s Diplo and Friends mix that we posted yesterday, you heard this song get teased, so now listen to the full edition. ‘Permission to Love’ was released in 2014 on Future Classic, a record label, artist management team and music publisher based in Sydney. This track tells a story through futuristic vocal sampling, a funky guitar riff, and a bouncy bass line.

Get ready to wiggle down to this delectable funkadelic single by Hayden James.
