006 DJ Mix: Open House | For this soulful house music suite, we crashed a bachelor pad in the hills and tapped the rack stereo’s AUX input. Fast forward to Karen Harding and Martha Wash vocals echoing down the canyon. Joy Orbison and Psychemajik’s ace reworks would follow, but not before the Lovebirds lit up the graphic equalizer in bassline bliss.
005 Playlist: Yachtcore | Soft rock’s next wave is upon us, dear listeners. Salty sunsets, colorful cocktails and that Blaupunkt stereo in the daysailer cockpit are the main ingredients. With The Stepkids, The Phoenix Foundation, Thundercat, Sun Rai, and Mac Demarco as the wind in our sails, the marine forecast is looking very fine indeed.
004 DJ Mix: 5x (Darius) | Paris-based producer Darius and his Roche Musique crew surfaced in 2014 with a sound rooted in French Touch but distinctly nouveau. This 5x sampler compiles the self-produced track that started it all with brilliant reworks of MØ, Bondax, Crayon, and The Magician.
003 Playlist: JNSQ (Je Ne Sais Quoi) | There's a summery je ne sais quoi in the air, calling for evening spritzes and chilled piscines, so we’ve paired French favorites Polo & Pan, Poom, Vendredi Sur Mer, Paradis, and Yelle with that magnum of rosé you’ve been saving all spring. Our advice? Pop the cork immediately and press play. Santé.
002 DJ Mix: Deep | It wasn't even 11PM when we hijacked the controls of a killer soundsystem with this one... and it launched like a rocket. You can imagine where things went from there. Kaskade, Miguel Migs, Moon Boots, Gigamesh and Kartell bring the vibe and remind us to go deep, if ever in doubt.
001 DJ Mix: SFTL (Strictly for the Ladies) | Sorry, lads. It's called SFTL because women front this one from beginning to end. When Portugal the Man, Anushka, Charlotte dos Santos, Lion Babe, and Taggy Matcher deliver stellar all-female vocals, it's an SFTL world and we just compile it.
