Mix Monday - Penguin Prison July 2012 Mixtape

This summer has been packed with so many shows, it's insane. Ever since my birthday at the end of June, I feel like I've been going to shows nonstop. Not that I'm complaining. Everything has been fantastic! It just hasn't left me much time to write about anything. Oddly, this Penguin Prison mix touches several of the shows I've been to and some of the music I've picked up along the way. I intend to write about these things.

Penguin Prison was one of the artists I went to see back in June at Brooklyn Bowl. His music is so catchy and infectious, the live performance is just icing on the cake. That's definitely one worth checking out. 

Enjoy the mix. Also, if you haven't grabbed the geniusness by RAC featuring Penguin Prison as remixed by The Magician, do that. I'll put some more goodies at the end of the post.

Playlist: "Eclecticism" 7/29/2012

More bass, please. Hope you caught this week's show. I wanted to get away from the tropical disco of summer, and get into some bassy house music. Let's say this was my show's interpretation of UK bass, at least, that's what I was going for. Enjoy!

Mix Monday: LOUISAHHH!!! - Bromance Summer Mix

Bromance and Gotta Dance Dirty present the awesomeness that is this Louisahhh mix. I'm so happy this  came out today. Instead of doing my own show last night, I decided to head to Le Bain. Louisahhh and Chris Malinchak killed it. It was well worth skipping the show for the week. However, I did leave the show feeling a need for more Louisahhh in my life. This mix does the trick for now. Download it here -- this one's going in the car.

Playlist: "Eclecticism" 7/18/2012

Well this is quite unusual for a Wednesday. Since I had off today, I decided to fill in some empty space on the radio this afternoon. I also felt bad that I'll be missing the show this upcoming Sunday. Here's the playlist from my little afternoon show for those who want it. Enjoy the rest of your day!

Mix Monday: Joe Goddard 45 Boiler Room DJ Set

Joe Goddard goes in on this Boiler Room DJ set with some serious UK garage and grime. I can't lie, when I first saw this mix, this was the furthest thing from how I imagined it would sound. The tracks are so bassy and glitchy, but still have a nice chill flow -- it's fantastic. Let's just leave this at, I need to hunt down some more tunes of this variety.

Playlist: "Eclecticism" 7/15/2012

Tonight's show, in my opinion, was truly eclectic. It's been a crazy week of music for me. It started off with some great mixes, Poolside's album took up a huge chunk of listening time, and then ended it all with Tycho at Webster Hall last night. There's a chance I won't be around next week. More about that later. Enjoy the playlist!

Poolside - Pacific Standard Time

Finally, it's here! A whole album of Poolside! At about 3am, something got me to check on the status of Poolside's debut Pacific Standard Time. I'm so happy it turned out to be the day it was released. Not only was I able to order the sweet double LP appropriately on gold and turquoise vinyl, it also came with the download on the receipt. Hooray for instant gratification!

If you haven't heard of Poolside, honestly, I'm sorry. You're missing out. It's been a year since "Do You Believe," and more recently Summer is basically halfway over.The epitome of summer music has been absent from your life. (Unless you're in the southern hemisphere. I guess it's technically winter right now -- hmm.) Everything you do in the summer could be done to this album. Obviously it's perfect for sitting by the pool or on the beach, but you can also get down to a lot of these tracks. There's a great little groove going on here. But to get you up to speed, or for your enjoyment, let's listen to some Poolside.

Mix Monday: The C90s - July Chart Mix

There certainly is no shortage of great mixes floating around right now. I had a few really good ones over the weekend. This Monday, I'm going with The C90s July mix. It's been way hot lately, and I'm ready for that epic dance that brings on the monsoon. While dancing and listening to it this morning, I decided, this would be the soundtrack to my raindance. Bring it on. 

Also, these tracks are fantastic. I've been basking in the rays of all this, what I like consider, tropidisco. This mix really gets into a nice house groove. I love it. Grab the free download of NSW Stomp by Debonair. I couldn't help but notice it was free when I found it on SoundCloud.

Mix Monday: Zimmer - Tobogan | June Tape

There's so much sexy tropical disco going around! I don't know what to do with it all. Zimmer has always been a champion of the sound in my opinion. He was one of the first guys I heard doing this style, and I've always loved all things Zimmer. His latest mix features some awesome tracks, some of which I remember seeing for download. I'll put those at the end. Happy summering!
