Can you believe it’s already June? Feels like just yesterday I was putting the finishing touches on the first mixtape for the year. This month’s mixtape has it’s leanings in deep house and melodic house and much more. It features remixes of your favourite artists and some surprises that I think you will love.

Think Bakermat, Goldfish, Aurora, FlicFlac and many more. Enjoy it!

Where To Go: Summer Waves

I can’t believe it is under a week until Summer Waves, under a week until Jasmine Thompson, James Hersey, FlicFlac, Pop Art Live and more take to the stage at Shimmy Beach Club.

Yes, you read that correctly, the chart topping Jasmine Thompson, with songs like ‘Adore’ and collaborations with the likes of Robin Schulz will perform alongside James Hersey, known for his work with Dillon Francis and Kygo on ‘Coming Over’ and the formidable duo FlicFlac are set to shake things up.

It is an absolutely incredible line up and tickets are a steal at just R95.

Summer Waves takes place on Sunday the 17th of April. I’ll see you there!

I have always dored FlicFlac and it’s no surprise that I have had their latest bootlegs on constant rotation for about a month now.

The Austrian duo has a magical ability to subtly tweak songs and leave the essence, all whilst injecting their signature sound. Their take on ‘Riptide’ by Vance Joy has long been a favourite of mine, along with their remix of Nihils ‘Help Our Souls’ and their bootleg of James Bay’s ‘ Hear Your Heart’.

More recently, they have taken Sheeran’s guitar heavy single, ‘Bloodstream’ and turned it into a deep house / tropical masterpiece while still staying true to Sheeran’s signature sound.

It’s light, fresh and, in my opinion, gives the original a run for its money. Enjoy!
