If the TBE 2011 Summer Mega-Mix taught us anything its that summer isn’t over until we say it is! This Tropical Assault mix is our final battle against the forces of autumn, seemingly lurking at every turn these past months. We will not down with out a fight and thankfully there are 14 finely tuned weapons at our disposal, poised and ready to be unleashed on any ear feeling the slightest bit of frost. So throw back the curtains, turn up the speakers, bask in that fantastic artwork, and let’s take summer by it’s horns.
Whereas the Mega-Mix flowed through genres like a summer’s day’s variety of cocktails, this mix is a more hardened and focused thing, culling the collective forces of all things tropical. Whether it be steel drums, bongos, sunny synths, or just a splash of sea water, these songs share that certain tropical something that has been infecting my ears so much lately. Summer on! Read more

In honor of our last post about Erlend Ã˜ye’s other band we have a song named after him! Ok, I actually have no idea if Australian duo Ted & Francis are paying homage to the Norwegian on this track but it doesn’t really matter because this track is hot butter. Ted & Francis have yet to relase any tangible EP or full legnth yet but in the meantime you can get a few more tracks over at Ohh Crapp… (Thanks again to Ohh Crapp….)
