The second part of our summer mixtape. The idea behind the mix was to capture the cyclical nature of the ideological endless summer; Part I took you from early morning to late afternoon and Part II (hopefully) picks up the baton and carries on into the night. It’s a rather eclectic mix with the four of us here each picking a few songs. The first few songs see you through early evening before an electronic-driven party atmosphere arrives. Catch a lift home with Ryan Gosling through the neon-drenched city and sit outside and watch the stars pass. See through the dead of night with Jason Molina before sunrise with Trouble Books. Hopefully you can then loop both mixes so the ‘day’ starts again. I’ve written a little bit more about the idea here.
Hope this works out.

Again, please support the artists on this mix. Our intention is to share our favourite music with others so hopefully you like what you hear and buy some records.
We tried to do something a bit different with this mix and we’d love your opinion on the idea/track listing. Does it work at all or fall flat on it’s face? Do you have any good themes for a future mixtape? Let us know on Twitter, Facebook or the clunky Tumblr message system. We would love to hear from you.
