mix series

It’s here, summer that is. And 26-year-old producer Bearcubs has given us a mix that blends emotive electronic music, future garage and lo-fi house in preparation for sultry summer days and sleepless nights.

Get transported to a sonic realm where your feet are dipped in the shallow end of a pool and the warm kiss of sun washes over you. “I wanted to make a mix to ease people into the summer” says Bearcubs, “it’s like a pool party soundtrack but where everyone is slightly weird (in a good way). It features new dance music I’ve been enjoying and a couple of old favourites.”

Cloud-like house tracks from Bicep (with Four Tet on the remix) and Jupiter Jax fade seamlessly into more mystic sounds from the likes of Mall Grab and Chrome Sparks. Sit back, relax, your summer prep start here.
