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!

DJ Soo- That’s My Jam

This mix is made of sunshine and smiles 🙂

I first heard this mix one lazy afternoon at Burning Man 2015. I was relaxing up in a 200 square foot hammock with a couple friends when someone put this mix on for our free caesar bar nearby.

This was also the day I got to know Emily. Emily and I camped together at Burning Man but I’ve always connected best with people over music and I learned that Emily was the same. We laid there in the shade with a slight breeze and just talked about music. Chatted about her experience at sound engineering school and her favorite local artists. We reminisced about our favorite recent shows and how we likely shared a mosh pit or two in the day.

Emily and I smiled with every new song in this mix. “oh I love this song.. oh this takes me back.. oh this track is so timeless”

Emily was tragically taken from us in a car accident last month and this mix is my closest connection to her. It is a perfect way for me to remember her. This mix will make you dance, this mix will make you smile, and I hope it will help you remember Emily how I do. Smiling and laughing in a big hammock at Burning Man.

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. Father Funk

Happy New year funkateers!

Our Father, who lays down funk. Wobbly is thy bass. Thy set time will come. Bangers will be spun in thy fields, clubs, and heaven. Give us this night of funky breaks. And forgive us of jives, as we forgive those who jive against us. Lead us no into temptation, and deliver us from EDM. For your is the rhythm, wobble, and the funk. Forever and ever.

Ahmen breaks.

The Cocktail Hour ft. Para One

IM GOING TO PARIS! I scoured the interwebs for some wicked French House shows and I found a few! Cherokee, Brodinski, off to a good start. But then I found Para One doing a show at a place called La Bellevilloie. Para One is Ed Banger. Ed Banger is life. The choice was obvious.

See you next week my friends.
