“Blogwave Summer” Mixtape

dailybeatz

This is the coolest shit!

For their one year anniversary, dailybeatz asked a bunch of their favorite blogs (including forthebeat!) to each submit a track that reminds them of summer, creating the ultimate “Blogwave Summer” Mixtape.

dailybeatz says, “It was an interesting project because everyone has a different definition of the perfect summer tune, but there’s a great mix of upbeat and chill that all flows together in the end.”

Head HERE to download the zip file and/or the single mp3 file.  And here is the track listing, highlighting each of the awesome blogs that participated!

One of EMPT’s fans, KIKI, left an extensive comment list that is nothing short of amazing, describing how each track makes her feel.  Some incredible highlights here:

track 3: I fucking love a-trak. and the word alchemy. at 2:28 I’m jamming with steph in a club and then we’re at the beach and then in a plane….by about 4:25 we’re at hiro.

track 6: YESSSSSSSSSS. NO WORDS. JUST PARTY MOVES AND PARTY DRESSES. SEQUIN ONES. black sequins, and spaghetti straps and champagne and a disco ball and jumping on banquettes. and falling in love or out…

track 8: I wish I could walk around nyc with songs like this blasting from a boom box on my shoulder.

track 9: saturday afternoons during ny winter with no real sunlight and rain and snow and walking down the street with a hat and mittens and loving whats in your ears and loving strangers.

track 13: repeat. repeat. repeat. repeat. repeat. repeat. repeat.

track 14: whatevsky.

track 18: dance party in slow motion. or steph doing the running man…..

<3 the twelves <3

the twelves

I LOVE The Twelves, but the Brazillian DJ duo rarely make it to the U.S.  Their December and January tour takes them to Hamburg, Geneva, London, Scotland, France, Sao Paulo and others – I might try and convince KC to come and follow them over the next month.

So many of their remixes are my favorites including:

- Black Kids: Boyfriend
- The Virgins: Rich Girls
- La Roux: In For the Kill

Here are two must-haves for your undoubtedly well-stocked collection:

Metric – Help I’m Alive (The Twelves Remix)

Alan Parsons Project – Wouldn’t Want to be Like You (The Twelves Remix)
