Sunday Coffee v9
While an early spring is always welcome, I'll feel a little silly leaving the house with a sunburn given it's just April 19. After a day spent out in the sun, the rain is finally falling today here in Winnipeg - welcome opportunity for me to stay in and put together a quick mix.
This week's mix is admittedly Adjunabeats-heavy, but a lower key first half seems appropriate given what's happening outside my window. There's a couple vintage Above & Beyond tracks, along with remixes by label-mates Maor Levi, Kevin Wild, and Arty. The latter, a personal favourite of mine, brilliantly reworks Ed Sheeran's "Bloodstream", livening up the + track to add impact to some strong vocals.
I'd be remiss to exclude Jamie xx's awesome "Loud Places" from one of these mixes, as it's wedged in here with a couple other female vocals - thematic! Finally, we finish off with Eric Prydz's new single, "Generate" - a track that finds the legendary producer in fine form, showing off the chord-work that has made him a household name.
Here's this week's tracklist:
0:00-4:35 - London Grammar - Wasting My Young Years (Maor Levi & Kevin Wild Remix)
4:35-9:43 - Above & Beyond - Good For Me (feat. Zoe Johnston)
9:43-14:15 - Jamie xx - Loud Places (feat. Romy)
14:15-20:45 - Ed Sheeran & Rudimentary - Bloodstream (Arty Remix)
20:45-26:03 - Above & Beyond - Sun & Moon (feat. Richard Bedford)
26:03-33:31 - Eric Prydz - Generate
