Awesome Mixes: Our Favourites of January 2015
2015 is off to a great start, with a ton of sonic goodness being put out by Adriatique, Tale of Us, Alex Niggemann, Solomun and Ame, Lee Burridge and Matthew Dekay, Clarian, Nick Devon, Whomi, Hoj, YokoO, The Drifter, Finnebassen, Gab Rhome, Darlyn Vlys, Dahu, Animal Picnic, HearThug, Yokto, and SBTH. As a result of being M.I.A. for over a month in Mexico on a one-way ticket, I’m a bit late compiling my monthly mix collection due to BPM and post-BPM parties/inability and unwillingness to remove myself from prior mentioned parties weeks later/subsequent recovery after grudgingly returning to normality. Check out these great mixes and live sets, including quite a few from BPM:

Lee Burridge b2b Matthew Dekay live @ All Day I Dream BPM 2015
Got some spare time? This is a 5 hour B2B ADID set, recorded live at Mamita’s in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico at the BPM Festival. This party is known for chill vibes and smiles, set on a gorgeous tropical beachscape; and though you may have not been there, the feeling can be channelled from the music.

Another lovely ADID set.
YokoO live @ All Day I Dream BPM 2015

Mantra Recordings IX – Yokto
I love the Mantra Recordings podcast series… really… I do. They carry a certain darker and emotive vibe that just suits me.

Some highlights include WhoMadeWho – Dreams (Adriatique Remix), Of Norway – City Lights (Lehar Remix), Mind Against – Polarstern, and more.

Transitions 544 – Finnebassen (2015-01-30)
Really been getting into Finnebassen recently… heard a few good recent mixes from him and this is no exception, quite a few gems in here. Actually have been listening to this on repeat for the majority of the day. The unreleased opening track (Agents of Time?) is just incredible, and Plastikman – EXhale (Dixon’s Just A Different Mixdown Version) is another new one to me. &ME – Blitz (Rampa & Re.You aka RAR Remix) and Terranova – Tourette (David Mayer Remix) are two tracks with really interesting percussion. Two of my personal favourites, Abeer Sheikh, Talal, Zoi & Saqib – Starry Skies and Kiasmos – Looped, are in here as well.
