Dirty Glow, a fun-filled album incorporating everything from R&B, Funk and Jazz to Hip-Hop and Electronica with ease and playfulness, put Naytronix on our Album Picks of 2012. So we're ecstatic to have Nate Brenner, the brilliant multi-instrumentalist and producer behind Naytronix, assemble this month's mixtape for us. We were expecting a wild ride given his abounding creativity and influences, yet he went beyond our expectations. Give it a spin!
We've fallen for Winnipeg's six-piece ensemble Royal Canoe and their unique rhythm, joyful tunes and energetic live performance a long time ago. So we've asked them to soundtrack the month of August for us, and befittingly, they came up with a summery feast. Swooping from Jurassic 5 to Al Green, through 16 tracks filled with nothing but the best genre hopping sounds, this mixtape will get you grooving in the sunshine.
