Summer's Pick 'N Mix

had to crank this one out before summer ends :P Enjoy this pick 'n mix post, where I hope to have something to tickle every one's fancy (and also may or may not be a regular feature) so, let's start with the Summer themed tracks:

Something new: Malfunction, reminds me of the old house we used to get in the 90's over in jolly old England, and Mr. La Roche should know, being English and all. Perfect summer tune. 'Nuff said

Something Old: same as above, reminds me of simpler times when all I cared about were crisps (that's chips for you in the states) and lemonade before life kicked in. well, that and you cant have summer without some quality house.

I love this next track to bits, (you've probably heard of BoC if you follow Deadmau5's twitter or FB) I play the album it's from every summer and it never gets old. whack this one on when the sun starts to go down, or up, and you'll see BoC really are something else.

and this is where the summer theme stops, and it becomes "Tracks I think you'll like" first up is some vocoded bliss by Chromeo, given a nice dollop of dub by Skream. Don't worry, it's chilled. No filthy wobbles in this post! 

Another oldie that I found on my iPod, the legend Laidback Luke gets remixed by the Dadas, need I say more?

Remember the remix competition Röyksopp held for tricky tricky a while back? I found my stash of them tucked away on my HD. somehow I'd forgotten about this absolute gem. A huge 8 minute progressive house number, adds an extra layer of epic over the already amazing vocals. You'll never want this track to stop, I know I don't.

and that's my summer summed up (bloody hell there's alot of Alliteration in this post :P) wherever you are, enjoy what's left of it, stay safe, enjoy the music.

Enjoying Sunny England,

Epic post
There wasn't one track here that I disliked :)
Malfunction in my opinion is the best track I've heard for summer so far.
Unplugged is really close though, very good :)
I'll be waiting for next post Claude you sexy beast

I don't know anything about Royksopp, but is that Karin Dreijer? Cause it sure as hell sounds like her.
Love it btw!

@Jenny , it is. they got her to do the vocals for one track from The Understanding, their second album, and she appears on even more tracks from Junior. (check it out & see!) And rightly so, she has an amazing voice : )
