When: Donnis’ Snack Pack series are dropping about every 2 weeks.
Why: Much has been made here at TBE about the epic DJ Hotsauce remix of Donnis’ jam “Ring My Bell” but I never really considered tracking down the guy’s original stuff. Well, he just started dropping these free Snack Packs with two songs each and “Gimme”Â immediatelyÂ caught my ear. Donnis keeps his rhymes quick and tight over the song’s minimal melancholy groove and delicate female backing vocals. It just works. If this guy can keep the big-label polish off his collar he just may do something interesting. Snack pack Vol. 2 just dropped today. Get at it.

Ahem! Excuse me. If you thought you were taking a break because last weekend was New Years Eve then forget it. This is the first weekend of 2012 and it’s time to kick things off right. Below is a list of the best remixes of the past 6 months and they are quite restless so please let them out this weekend. Walks and feeding are optional.
Any glaring errors in judgement? Any additions you would make? Any good pizza in L.A.?
17. â™«Â M83 – Midnight City (Alcala Remix)Â / One of the top remixed songs of the year had stiff competition but Alcala’s slow build explodes the original into the stratospheric massiveness that it always hinted at.
8. â™«Â Citizens! – True Romance (Gigamesh Remix)Â / From the moment Gigamesh drops that beat it’s all over. The windows are down and I’m practically climbing out the window to get the whipping wind on my face. Thank goodness for seat belts.
1. â™«Â The Notorious B.I.G – Everyday Struggle (Frogs in Socks BiG Bootleg)Â / Just as you get your head around the odd and minimal beat you realize that Biggie sounds clearly than ever and everything fits in such anÂ awkwardlyÂ perfect way you wonder how such a thing could exist. Then you understand that the world is full of all sorts of miracles that nobody can explain.

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

DJ Hotsauce comes through with a absolutely glorious summer tune. Â If you haven’t made at a summer mix yet, its time you do because this jam deserves to be in it. Â If you have made one, make another. Â DJ Hotsauce has pulled off a new summer of 2011 anthem.
