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!

zip file —> TBE’s Summer In Hi-Fi (Tracks 9 & 15 are switched in the filenames. Wont be able to fix that for a while. They are correct in the post, though!)

Most of these songs have been featured before but the few new ones will get a little note on their awesomeness. All in all, we’ve got 4 tracks with ‘surf’ in the title, 3 with ‘learn,’ and two with ‘tropic.’ Oh, and one with ‘hammock.’ Sounds about right to me. How about you? Which jam are you loving most? And perhaps even more interestingly, which track are you hating and wondering how I ruined this great mix with it? I wanna hear all sides! Or just put it on your iPod and go enjoy the sunshine!

1. ♫ The Foals – This Orient
