François Rengère – 11 Months (The Mixtape)
Incredible mix by Parquet artist François Rengère featuring all his own gorgeous, complexly melodic productions. “Equlilibre,” is an absolute bomb of a track; opener “Something About You,” is a gorgeously harmony of airy pads and rich bells; “Greed,” is somber and synth-heavy; and “Clouds,” is lovely and just a tad dark, to name a few of the selections.
JannoPod#35 By François Rengère
Another amazing mix by François Rengère, melodic tunes, some with a much more dark cast. Includes his new absolute fire remix of Mâhfoud – The Giant, as well as David August “Set Me On,” Gardens of God “Gluk,” Oliver Schories & Joris Delacroix – Palm Tree Memories (N’to Remix), and other really incredible tuns I haven’t heard yet.
Aaryon – Steyoyoke Podcast #034
Really spectacular dark mix from newcomer Aaryon, featuring moody bombs from Dahu, Whomi, DJ Koze, Skena, Patlac, and includes his own works “Chlorine” and “Fairy Tales” as well as an upcoming collab with Animal Picnic. Track selection is on point. Free download via Soundcloud.
CONNAISSEUR MIXTAPES #8 Timelapse
A nice darker-tinged, flowing melodic mix with many great tracks including personal favourite bomb Pete Oak – “Tranquila” (Dahu Remix), as well as Mano le Tough “She Sighed,” the dramatic “All Worlds All Times” by Barnt, Show-B “Arps to Heaven,” and Recondite – “Garbo,” as well as some really lovely likely unreleased ones I don’t recognize.
Bedouin – Robot Heart – Burning Man 2014
It’s Bedouin… at Burning Man… what is there to say? Bedouin perfectly channels that Burning Man playa vibe, with the deep, grooving melodies that uniquely characterize a Robot Heart party. Includes &Me – “After Dark”, Bedouin’s amazing remix of “Late Nights Early Mornings,” DJ Koze’s remix of “Bad Kingdom,” and more. Free download.
Âme – Electric Zoo afterparty at Output
Five hours of Âme! Everything good is in here. Just listen.
Krink – Live at Prisma – Studio 80 Amsterdam – 7.11.2014
I love, love, love the unique sound of Krink, and he’s one of those guys that plays only his own productions in his sets. Includes “Money Jar” (I call it the dragon song), and absolute brooding fire “A Passenger.”
Powel NA Tour Mix 2014
Powel’s lovely mix is kinda mellow, kinda upbeat, kinda groovy… some bits are downright mesmerizing.
