The Kickoff: Zimmer - Méditerranée | July Tape

You guys should be quite familiar with Paris's Zimmer by now. I've probably posted every one of his mixes. They're always so good, I can't help myself. This month, the French producer gives us another lesson in horizontal disco. It starts off slower so we can get some La Roux in the mix, then things take off, only to come back to the slow jams at the end. There are also a lot of top notch edits and mixes of some old school tracks in the mix. It adds a nice touch. I hope you enjoy just as much as I did!

Playlist: "Eclecticism" 7/27/2014

Hopefully you did some dancing for me tonight. The studio got so hot, I had to do the show seated for the first time in a couple of years. Lame. Come back next week for more great summer tunes!

The Kickoff: Waifs & Strays - "Deep House Amsterdam Straf_Werk Festival Podcast #010"

Waifs & Strays are two gents from the UK who surely know how to get down. They come from different musical backgrounds, but came together for their love of house. This mix comes ahead of the Straf_Werk festival in the Netherlands which happens in August. I can only assume Waifs & Strays is playing and it will be a groovin' good time. The boys packed a bunch of soulful, shimmering house tracks into this one, so I hope you're ready to move your feet.

The Kickoff: JBAG - Asia Tour Mixtape

Continental Records label heads Jerry Bouthier and Andrea Gorgerino, JBAG, have a knack for playful, dreamy, and bouncy productions. I've been sort of stuck in that groove since the release of Boys Get Hurt's latest Your Love EP. The B-side track "Sea Through" appears in this JBAG mix. Along with a bunch of other upbeat and poppy tropical tracks, the boys have included their new single "Through Blue." Look for that to release this week. It features another favorite of the show, Kamp!

The Kickoff: DIRTCAST #43 | Kraak & Smaak

Dutch trio Kraak &Smaak never disappoints. Whether it's a track, an album, a mix, whatever it is, Kraak & Smaak will bring the funkiest vibes around. Today, they posted a new single called "Mountain Top," and it's exactly what you want from a these guys. It's groovy, no fills house with a hint of darkness. So to celebrate and continue with the energy, here's a mix that Kraak & Smaak put together for Dirt Crew Recordings. It starts off with a remix of Detroit Swindle's "64 Ways," which you can find out now! Sadly, we'll have to wait until the end of the month for "Mountain Top."

The Kickoff: Boys Get Hurt | Summer House ~ MIX4SWIM2 ~

Japanese producer Boys Get Hurt is a favorite of the show and a go-to for summer vibes. Associated often with French label Kitsuné, the cutesy, playful energy is simply irresistible. Later this week, Boys Get Hurt will be putting out a new EP to follow last month's Your Love EP. I plan to share the new EP this week, so keep an eye out. The playlist for this mix is also something to keep an eye out for, checkout the Summer House Facebook page.
