…and we’re back! Thanks for bearing with us and being with us! Dave lays down a near double-dose to make up for lost time, starting out loud and quick in the mix, and gliding into the sublime: a leisurely float along a space-side beach with nighttime electro twinkling to starboard and waves of lush electronics glistening on the port side.

    The NEW site looks GREAT! Here regularly to get the BEST mixes. Love you guys! Downloading the latest now!

    If anyone has any idea about a mix from sonicsunset with a track in it of some funk with a female vocal singing “I need action..” PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE let us know. Had that mix and lost it due to HD crash and can’t find it since.

    best regards,
    Miss & Mister

    This is gorgeous mate!! The perfect accompaniment for a dusky train ride home from work along the Wellington (NZ) harbour front. The peaceful smiles and feeliings of rightness these mixes induce are so spot on it’s amazing. Keep up the good work people, it’s all fantastic. Cheers. 5&3

    Utterly speechless this mix is an absolute pure house music sermon. The larry heard (the sun cant compare) sticks out and gave me the goosebumps ….are you sure you guys aint angels or something like that.I bet my friend His holiness the Dalai Lama would feel the love in this mix and would have some excellent words of wisdom to share after a listen………CHeers X

    I know sonicsunset since the fabulous B12 Records Special.
    Since then I never miss one of the sets – always sooo much waiting for a new post.

    Your mixes are an inherent part of my car’s ipod.
    Brilliant for cruising and racing.
    Lately I enjoyed the older “Lighter Path” mix on a long drive through Germany. And here’s my comment: Chapeau!

    In my opinion the most spectacular mix ever!
    So elegant and suitable transitions of tunes… Hmmm… Just perfect!

    The selection and order of the tunes in this mix is a proof of your fabulos taste and “understanding” of music. Just brilliant.

    Thank you

    Cheers from Germany,

      Wow, thanks for the feedback! We probably think a little too much about how to put music together, but if in the end it’s cohesive, that’s the goal. Really glad you’re enjoying, and thanks for sticking around after the B12 special!
