MIXTAPES: 4th of July 2017 DAY & NITE

Back again with over 60 songs to keep you moving (or relaxing, whatever you prefer) on this hopefully long holiday weekend. Someone asked me recently “why ‘DAY’ and ‘NITE'”? Well, if you are on the beach this weekend, you really should only be keeping time through the system of daylight = day and night = night time. No need for watches on the beach.

This year’s DAY mix spans 34 tracks that start in the folk/indie pop realm before moving into some upbeat electro pop that should transition to some danceable sunset ready cuts. Dan Auerbach (The Black Keys) brings out sunny rays with the ’60s pop reminiscent “Shine on Me”, while Hoops offers a hazy, lo-fi gem in “Management” that pairs nicely with Jay Som’s bliss pop song “Baybee”. Later, Calvin Harris assembles a pop super force with Pharrell, Katy Perry, & Big Sean on the appropriately tropical hit “Feels”, and BLOWSOM shares their own bit of island percussion and melody on “Sun”. I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention Danny Brown’s excellent feature on Gorillaz “Submission”, which will either garner head nods or wake up as your party nears snset. Let me know where you land.

NITE is also a stacked 34 tracks, but I’d argue you’ll hardly notice after 2 hours later of fire or beachside dancing. Phoenix kicks off the mix with their pulsing single “Ti Amo” before Peking Duk picks up the pace with AlunaGeorge and synth on “Fake Magic”. Viceroy makes two appearances with his well-crafted spiraling dance anthem “Improvise” and groove-worthy take on 50 Cent’s “Disco Inferno”. Other winning combinations include Amelia Airhorn, Skylar Spence & the Knock’s retro NY adventure on “NY Is Red Hot”, Bakermat’s fiery track “Don’t Want You Back” with Kiesza, and Axwell Ingrosso’s hovering cut “Renegade”. Not gonna lie though, my most played track of the summer has been 3LAU’s remix of Katy Perry’s “Bon Appetit”. The tempo is more dance-ready, the synth and percussion is more hypnotic, and Migos flow with the rhythm (rather than distract).
