I’m finding it a bit hard to believe given the current temperatures, but according to these two good-looking Frenchmen summer is not yet over: in anticipation of their upcoming single Prophet 21 (out on September 23), the Stravinskys of electronic dance music -better known as SALM, or SomethingALaMode- are giving away a mixtape featuring both timeless classics and fresh tracks. Music for sunny afternoons!

Disco Demons – 2012

Disco Demons - 2012

This is:

► 23 days too late, I know. Sorry about that – better late than never.

► a very personal review of what has been going on in my life during the past year. All of these songs are somehow connected to 2012 in my head (not necessarily in the order as they appear in the mix, though), as they remind me of people I’ve met, places I’ve visited, parties I’ve played at. Good times.

► a way for me to say thank you. To all the amazing people I’m proud to call my friends, old and new, for sharing some of the way through this crazy little thing called life with me in the past year. To all the musicians featured in this mixtape, for their never-ending passion in the fight against mediocrity. To all fans, supporters, promoters, fellow DJs and everyone else spending their nights partying with me instead of going to bed – one day you guys will look back on your lives, and the nights you got plenty of sleep won’t be the ones you’ll remember.

This is not:

► a conventional “best of last year” mixtape showcasing my favorite releases of 2012. I did not count, but I’m pretty sure that at least half of the songs in this mix have actually been released before 2012.

► a promo mix. Neither does this mixtape reflect the style of music I play in clubs nor is its intention to show off my mixing skills. It’s sole purpose is to condense a wide variety of genres and styles into one single piece of music for myself and other people to enjoy, so danceability and technical perfection have not always been the prime goals here.

► a complete list. Far from it. This year’s mixtape is even longer than the last one, and yet there are songs coming to my mind as I’m writing this text that I forgot to include in this mixtape and will probably haunt me in my dreams forever.

Adele – Skyfall (SoulCircuit Bootleg)

Adele Skyfall

Before you judge me for posting a Skyfall remix now, after Adele won the Golden Globe and everyone and their mother started remixing the shit out of this song, please note that I haven’t actually posted a single remix of it so far. If you don’t believe me, feel free to use the search.

This one here is special. Slowing things down actually instead of speeding them up, London-based producer duo SoulCircuit turn the beautiful song into a quiet yet powerful deep house jam that Sasche Funke himself couldn’t have done better, complete with subtle percussion grooves and small melodies big enough to get lost in.

SOHN – The Wheel (MAU Remix)

S O H N - The Wheel

Now that’s what I call musical multiculturalism: London-bred but Austria-based artist extraordinaire S O H N, remixed by MAU, a band founded in Denmark but now based out in Portugal.

Somewhere in between dreamwave, post-dubstep and what’s commonly referred to as trap but is actually nothing more than hip-hop influenced by electronic dance music, this amazing remix will make you forget about things as irrelevant as music genres, so stop reading now and press play, for Christ’s sake.

My fellow partners in crime The Shit Is Coming Home have put together a new mixtape, heading towards new directions: “Sometimes you have to go deep to rise up!” is what they have to say about the mix themselves. Somewhere between deep house, acid techno, bassine and garage, The Deep Edition takes you on a trip to sweaty clubs and east London warehouse parties.

Mixhell – Soulwaxmas Mixtape

Mixhell - Soulwaxmas

Brazil’s very own Laima Leyton, ex Sepultura drummer Iggor Cavalera and Max Blum, better known as Mixhell, have put together an exclusive mixtape for what they call “the coolest festival on earth”, Soulwax’s annual Soulwaxmas Christmas bash. The mix is a lot deeper and slower than expected from the trio, ranging from garage smash hits such as Julio Bashmore’s Au Seve to subtle house grooves and underground UK funky basslines.
