Hello Summer

I know I’ve been bouncing around a lot lately (Hawaii, Oregon, Chicago, San Francisco & Asia since January), but the trip I embark on today is different. Entirely non-work related. Unplugging completely. Gonna be sleeping in a tent on the beach actually. Focussing all my energy on surfing, snorkeling and eating tacos with good friends for the next 7 days. Haven’t been to Mexico since I was a teenager, so I’m very much looking forward to it. It’s my way of properly acknowledging a major transition and stepping forward into Summer on the good foot. No doubt I’ll be soaking up plenty of inspiration for new tunes along the way. I put together this super sunny playlist of tracks I’m feeling right now to help spread the early summer vibes.

Robin Thicke : Blurred Lines ft. T.I. & Pharrell
I know it’s pop as all hell, but this is too good to snooze on. Major jacking of Marvin Gaye’s “Got To Give It Up”, but you won’t hear me complaining.

Laura Mvula : Green Garden (Osage Remix)
better than the remix I was going to make. So so good.

Andrea Calabrese : Africa Intense (Bress Mix)

Juice, Mess & Simone Farina : Corazon (Fanelli Farina Mix)
shout to DJ Cato for this heater

Machel Montano : Vibes Cyah Done (Jus Now Remix)
shout to DJ Nadi for this future soca bomb

Bunji Garlin ft. Nigel Rojas : Differentology

Dub Gabriel : My Gun (Shotnez Remix)

Popcaan : Raving

Dieze Tigrona : Prostituto ft. Jaloo
sweetest sounding trap-baile-funk ode to a hooker ever recorded

Mop Mop : Kamakumba & Phantom Of The Panther
shout out to Dangerscouse for the heads up

The Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band : Pimp
and big up my man Soul Cocina who turned me onto this

    yo been bumping all your mixes for the last while, how the F do you afford to travel all over the place all the time? I wish I had nothing but time to make music and travel and meet artists and kick it! holla back with the tips, do you sell life insurance or something on the side for real.

    Loving the house tunes, Robin Thicke and Mop Mop and Bacao aren’t new to me. Surprising how some great tunes can pass you by…I assumed you’d know Bacao. Good to repay the favour with all of the tunes / artists you get me into

    I got Rob ‘Make It Fast, Make It Slow’ recently too. You might have got it already, I’ve been meaning to buy it for ages. If not, get it. African funk par excellence, and Tricky’s new album ‘False Idols’ is fantastic too.

    Hahaa! Listen Fringe, I took a huge leap of faith 3 years ago when I quit my day job and decided to commit everything to making music and DJ-ing. While it may not appear to be hard work, it is. Fortunately I love doing it so it’s all worth it. And yes, the perks of travelling and working with other artists didn’t happen by accident, I’ve been working towards this since I was a teenager. Anyway, glad you like the music!
