[MIX] TBE Presents: The 2011 Summer Mega-Mix!

Cover Art by DARTS

I don’t wanna hear one peep about how “summer is almost over!” or “but it’s not even sunny where I am” or “this mix is late” or “my eyes are melting from that album art.” Summer is a frame of mind and TBE is about to whip yours into shape! Now that you have grown tired of your own summer mix as well as all the ones that other blogs put out months ago, it’s time to get the summer mix to not only end all summer mixes, but to end summer itself! (Except thats not even true because I have a specially themed bonus summer mix for next week! Stay tuned…) The Burning Ear 2011 Summer Mega-Mix has something for everyone and happens in a few different waves so it’s best listened to in order.

So smooth out those short shorts, dust off those cocktail umbrellas, slide those shades up on the nose, and feel the warm breeze between your sandy toes because this mix is about to start with a bang. And did I mention that album art courtesy of DARTS? I can’t even count the number of awesome things going on. There is at least one for each of the 19 jams happening below. Read more

[EP] COSMONAUT CRECHKO and friends do some SINGIN’ over some sweet beats

i wish you could keep me in your garden

♫ Cosmonaut Grechko – Singin’ (Feat. Joywave) (radio edit)

After a big run in these pages by remixing the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Metric, and Joywave, Russian teenager Cosmonaut Grechko has an EP of his own stuff slated for release. First single “Singin'” features the Americans in Joywave and sounds pretty damn nice. I’m loving the sound of these two forces together again. Grechko kicks the beat out like a featherlight top swirling over a sparkling pool as Joywave bring vocals like crisp watermelon. It’s pretty much the perfect song for a bright sunny day and the world at your fingertips. Cut Copy could take some lessons. The rest of the Alaska 2100 EP contains 2 more originals and a handful of remixes, all sure to keep that shades n’ smile combo working overtime.
