A bit early to think about this year´s summer holidays? Not for Aka Tell, as he’ll explain in his monthly column. And of course there is a new “Hangover Sessions” mix, featuring 60 minutes of quality club music including tracks by Maxime Dangles, Drums Of Death, Boddika & Joy Orbison, TWR72, Truncate, Keith & Supabeatz, Bart B More, Tracques and many more!

This is my holiday season mix. Of course, it´s still snowing in Austria, and a little easter-bunny was sitting on my shoulder while preparing this mix, but I will leave for some weeks of sun and surfing tomorrow – and this is actually the reason why this months mix is one day early. As my mixes have not been so mellow for quite some time you could also say that you can already feel my holiday mood in it. Ok, to be honest I wanted to do a deeper “Hangover Sessions” mix for some time, but did not find the right opportunity. House and Garage tunes have been an important part of my sets recently. (And also in those of my friends and colleagues. I am definitely part of a scene here.) And so I dedicated a huge part of this months mix to them. And for all those of you, who want to listen to some heavy stuff: skip to the end of the mix, I featured some dirty tracks for you there.
The reason why I go on holidays now is the same why (if you are a producer) should finish your releases for this year’s festival season now: from May onwards there are festivals and there is simply no time to go on holidays then. And as some DJ´s won´t even the find time to add a lot of new music to their sets during the busy part of the year, you should send out your promos soon! I, for my part, don´t care – I will be playing mostly live-acts and my monthly mixes will still feature the latest stuff for you!
