The Cocktail Hour ft. Fout Tet

Four Tet is one of those producers who I know is popular and talented but I never got exposed to him cuz he’s kinda weird and definitely not mainstream. Well not only have I come to realize that I’m missing out of some weirdly awesome music but this guy is playing at Sasquatch. If there’s a place for me to find a groove into a genre I wouldn’t normally slide into, it’s at a music festival. It’s what happened to me with Tycho and I cant stop listening to that guy.

Four Tet, I think I haven’t given you the chance to let me fall in love with you but I’m gonna tap into my younger me’s impressionable mind and see if we can make something click here. My guess is yes.

 

 

The Cocktail Hour ft. Viceroy

I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve featured Viceroy on the Cocktail Hour. But lets face it, hes the embodiment of feel good Friday music. He’s Mr. SummertimeAllTheTime, baby. An inspiration in the winter time but when you get to cut out work early for a weekend getaway and the sun is shining then his flavor of tropical grooves is just what you’re looking for to drive off into the sunset.

Happy Friday, everybody!

The Cocktail Hour ft. Daft Punk

An essential mix for the ages. Bit of Daft Punk and a lot of what was cool as shit in 1997. Get into it.

The Cocktail Hour ft. Daft Punk (1997)

Bring it back to the roots, kids. If this mix doesn’t do it for you then get out of my face. This is where it all began. I cant wait for the 2017 tour.

Majid Jordan – Forever (VIDEO)

This song is seriously lovely. Some beautiful melodies and a tight back beat has me dancing and feeling chill at the same time. Magical.

The Cocktail Hour ft. JUSTICE [A † THE UNIVERSE]

My coworker and I have a little tradition going in my office on Fridays. We call it French House Friday and we simultaneously rock out inside our headphones to classic French house. Usually Justice or Daft Punk. I work in a pretty quiet office with a lot of older guys which makes the party in my headphones quite the contrast.

Every Friday. Banging French house music. You should join us.
