Well, it's that fateful day again. Lucky I went out the night before so now I have some video editing and some stuff to write up for Uni then huh? Regardless I'm gonna drop some tunes on you because I like procrastinating more than work!
HudMo lays down another of his annual slow jams mixes just in time for the 14th, not your conventional mix by any stretch of the means, apart from Mohawke dropping in some of his beloved gunshots here and there get ready for quarter of an hour worth of slow jams!
And some mo' selections from my catalogue for you. First is Sebastién Tellier with a bit from his fittingly titled Sexuality that has the honor of being produced by Guy Manuel de Homem-Christo, one half of everyone's favourite french house duo Daft Punk.

I'll throw in my favourite remix too, Kavinsky's touch on the opening track from Sexuality is just brilliant, the intro to it is almost perfect. And fits right in with the rest of the album's sound quite comfortably unlike some of the other remixes, which is something I like a lot.

And finally, a couple of tunes from Canadian funk maestros Chromeo. Fancy Footwork is where they started to nail the sound they were going for, and it reflects in the explosion in popularity around that LP in comparison to their first. Here's an under appreciated gem from Fancy Footwork

And I'll end it with the final tune from that album, and something that wouldn't sound too out of place on HudMo's Slow Jams tape up there, but with a little more of a funk vibe to it. Make sure you stay tuned till the end to hear the bonus reprise of Tenderoni!
