Toro Y Moi - Boiler Room Los Angeles Mix

Toro's on my mind. The new record is out, I got my ticket to one of the shows in New York, and I finally got to listen to this mix that's been an open tab in my browser for way too long. Nothing from the new album, Anything In Return, appears in the mix, but it definitely reflects how multifaceted Toro Y Moi's sound is. Usually I wouldn't hesitate to put Toro in my mental chillwave file, but this mix definitely delves into solid house territory. The new album does as well. It picks up right where the Freaking Out EP left off, yet still holds to that classic Toro Y Moi sound. Check it out! And, enjoy this mix!

Mix Monday: Duke Dumont - Radio 1 Essential Mix - Future Stars of 2013

A couple of Mondays ago, I posted the first of four episodes that BBC Radio 1 is doing to showcase some big talent for the upcoming year. Duke Dumont appears as Annie Mac's pick, and needless to say, this mix is absolutely fantastic!

"For me, being from the UK, the Essential Mix is an institution, so I am honoured to receive the call from Annie & Pete. My aim was to give listeners an insight into the music that motivates me to record and also to showcase my own material, including some exclusive works. The overwhelmingphilosophy behind the mix wasto represent what I play on a regular basis on my weekly travels around the world. The mix was recorded in a single take on a standard CDJ set-up, with the majority of tracks being edited to help keep a consistent energy throughout the mix. I hope you enjoy my selection and all the best to all upcoming producers & DJ's engaging in their passion for music x". Duke Dumont, January 2013, from the BBC Radio 1 website.

Check out Dumont's latest release "Need U (100%)," and enjoy this mix.

Chill vibes for a chill week. Hope you enjoyed the show. It's about to get really cold in the northeast. The weather people predict a low of 9 on Wednesday. Crazy!

Mix Monday: Future Classic DJs January Heatwave 2013

There's so much awesome stuff lined up for 2013, and we're only a couple weeks in! Future Classic kicks off the year with this heatwave mix. The heat from down under most certainly reaches the northern latitudes. It's been quite warm this past week, at least speaking for New Jersey. Sadly, I didn't see a tracklist for this, but it is a free download. Enjoy!

Mix Monday: BBC Radio 1's Essential Mix with Perseus and Jonas Rathsman

All month long, BBC Radio 1's Essential Mixes will feature their "Future Stars of 2013." Pete Tong brought in French Express's Perseus and Jonas Rathsman to kickoff the four part series with two hours of soulful and sinful house tracks reflecting the mission of the New York label -- protecting the feel good. These two put together a beautiful mix! The entire show (and tracklist) is available from BBC Radio 1's website. Sadly, there isn't a download of this one, so make sure to enjoy it before it's presumably taken down at the end of this month. (Update: It's posted on the French Express SoundCloud. Thanks guys!)
