Cool As Ice

Some 80s goodness from both the pop and underground sides of the spectrum work the floor in this timeline rollercoaster of a mix – with beached-out melodies and jack-track jams along the way. Enjoy! -David

Body Sonic

A number of nods to Detroit get the spotlight in this post-festival session that starts uptempo and enters a second movement a little more softly and slowly. On the newer front, check the smoothed-out “dubstep” from Jack Sparrow and the late-80s house revamp from Storm Queen – and going back in time, one of the all-time disco greats from Black Ivory. Enjoy! -David

Rocket Deep

This was going to be part 2 of the last mix, but the last mix ended up pretty long on its own.  This one’s a little faster in tempo, throwing back some industrial and some mid-90s sci-fi cuts I’ve been wanting to play.  Check the new Chicago sounds from Steve Tang and UNLTD / Israel Vines (all of whom we’ve been lucky to have on Sonic Sunset in the past), plus killer broken-up sounds from Shed and Andrea.  -David

Belle Isle Daze

Belle Isle Daze

Hi so it’s been far too long, I hope this helps make up for an extended absence.  A sprawling mix of soul, deep space techno, house and abstract funk. From Detroit to Chicago, UK to NYC and beyond the clouds, won’t you come visit trip city?  -Matt

Matt uncorks a 2.5 hour extended trip through soul in different dance styles. From chill Detroit nighttime transitions to synthy boogie, house, and some abstract dub electronics. Don’t miss your medication from Talking Heads, and Deadbeat’s searing remix of Saul Williams for the closer.

Ghosts

Part 1: Right-click to download (74 min = 86 mb)
Part 2: Right-click to download (76 min = 88 mb)

Part 1 > Music for a hot summer night alone, gloomy soundtracks take a trip. A heartbreak dusty from One Way, icy synthesizers from Joy Division, inner city blues from Curtis Mayfield and deep cuts from Detroit’s Jeff Mills and Urban Tribe. This one isn’t exactly a ‘pick me up’ — but sometimes you just gotta get it all out.

Part 2 > Electronic boogie, simmering house, and dubbed-out techno are carefully tossed into the blender over ice for a midsummer’s treat. New psychedelic oscillations from Newworldaquarium, top-shelf filtered goodness from Substance & Vainqueur, beats broken and voices echoed by Burial, while Sven Weisemann and Oracy keep things smooth and simple.
