Right now, you’re feeling energetic. Your last exam is over. All that studying and rushing to finish any last second projects is out of the way, never have to be worried about again (or at least for a few months). You want to party.

You’ve called your mates. You’ve gotten things organised—drinks, food, games. Now all you need is some tunes. Have no fear, for we at Kettle have you covered. Here are the top five songs you should have when putting your ultimate house party playlist together.

Underworld – Born Slippy

This is the ultimate kickstarter to a party—the representation of the climax of studying to the end where the party truly begins. Go on. Rave. You deserve it. No one can tell you otherwise.

Stardust – Music Sounds Better With You

The party has begun. Now that you have that feeling of rave, you must find a tune that expresses one message—I’m done with my exams. I’m having a house party. I want the bloody walls to shake. Look no further.

Thomas Bangalter – Colossus

You are raving—you and your mates are releasing all of that energy, the ‘Thank God this is over’ energy you’ve wanted to release ever since the exam stress marathon began. This colossal tune by the French DJ will help you do that.

Chris Malinchak – You’ve Been So Good to Me

Now, you want to take it down a notch, bask in the reflection of the good times of the past year, and indeed reflect on what fun you’ll have this summer. This tune will do it for you.

Rudimental – Feel the Love

You are winding it down (sort of), but still want to keep the momentum going. You already find yourself in a reflective mood, ready for what the summer brings with you and your mates), but you want to end your party on a raving high.

You want to shut the world out. You want to tell them you’re bloody well raving, and you’re not going to stop, and to bring it on. Let Rudimental (and John Newman) help you do that.
