Tonight was the last show of the year! It's amazing how the year flew by. There were so many amazing songs from 2012. I tried to get as many into two hours as I could, but we didn't even put a dent in the folder I was pulling from. So consider this the pre-gaming to tomorrow night's festivities. The first show of the year will have to be the after party. Come back for that! Judging by what's left in this folder, it's going to be a great time.

Merry Christmas! (And Happy Holidays to those who don't celebrate Christmas!) Normally I would listen to Christmas tunes while wrapping the last of my gifts, but iTunes hasn't been cooperating and I haven't a solution. So, off to SoundCloud where there are lots of readily available mixes for a music junkie's listening pleasure.
Ukrainian dj, Alexander Khomenko (or Sparkless), posted this great disco mix from his podcast "Nu Disco Your Disco." It's not exactly a holiday mix, but the energy and vibes are just right. The classic disco vibes gets a nice little relaxed groove going. After all the holiday craziness, who wouldn't want a relaxing groove? Enjoy this, enjoy your holiday, and and don't forget to relax, because isn't that what the holidays are about?

LOUISAHHH!!! WOO! Every time I read her name, I feel like I have to back it up with energy and excitement. She's is one of my favorites when I'm in need of some moody or edgy house music. Her work with Bromance Records is particularly satisfying.
This is the first of episode of a podcast series for TUNNELFM where Louisahhh djs the first hour, and then a special guest takes over for the second hour. It happens the third Saturday of the month at 11pm (GMT). Stevie Be (one half of Pipes) appears as the first guest of the series. In total, it's a fantastic two hours tracks.

SBTRKT, so I've heard, is a must see. I haven't gotten the opportunity yet, but this 50 minute set he laid down for Boiler Room looks and sounds like a good time. Enjoy it. SBTRKT pulls from quite a variety of genres, including house, hip-hop, and contemporary R&B. I'm in it to get my UK Garage fix, but the flawless change of styles near the middle and end of this set is why SBTRKT is brilliant. Both the video and audio track are posted after the jump. Make sure to grab the download.

Relaxing and dancing are two of my favorite things, and the combination of the two is pure bliss. Any music relating to such activities is also welcomed. I don't know who Eldaran is, but this is a fantastic. He promises good vibes and delivers. Thanks Eldaran, and thanks Luv Shack Records for favoriting this today. Make sure to download this one.
