TBE’s Summer In Hi-Fi /// A Summer Mix, Vol 1

Ahhh, summer… If mine wasn’t currently operating as the antithesis of all this relaxing and peaceful I would definitely have had this mix up sooner, but alas, it wasn’t to be. However, seeing as tomorrow I head out on an 18 day family vacation (never too old!) it’s time to get these summer jams pumping! Today is Volume 1 and the next two Fridays will bring Volumes 2 & 3 respectively. I’ve never understood the concept of an all-encompassing summer mix because like all things amazing, summer has many facets and is home to many moods. So I’ve gone and put together 3 full mixes of summer-themed goodness, each with it’s own sun-soaked vibe. Seeing as how this year’s summer was perhaps the most highly anticipated (and deserved) clump of warm days in Polish history I decided to kick off this summer mix series with a big rousing 54-minute high-five to the summer sun. Summer In Hi-Fi is a mix that celebrates summer with all the energy and eagerness of that first day at the beach or pool. Take a gander at the track list after the jump and download the whole mix right below!

DAVID VANDERVELDE makes me want to LEARN HOW TO HANG ten off a waterslide

you were talkin shit and didn’t know how to tighten your lip

♫ David Vandervelde – Learn How to Hang

I don’t know anything about David Vandervelde except that I should probably know more. The guy has been around for a while now and is on Secretly Canadian, a label behind many other great talents. “Learn How To Hang” has a bit of hip swinging guitar shimmying that dances confidently between scattered handclaps and a twinkling xylophone. It’s not really surf music but it always evokes that vibe in me. Water sports and good times, a lot like that beautiful album photo. Cheers to Summer, wherever you are!
