Big Gigantic‘s Winter Vibes mix was a welcome influx of new and old jams and remixes to break up the monotony of a shitty and cold season. Their new Summer Vibes Mix is no different, except that it’s just welcome. I’m from Minnesota, and warm weather never quite gets the chance to be monotonous. It’s just there and gone in a flash.

Copenhagen-based headphone manufacturer AIAIAI releases an occasional “Music for Headphones” mix, and the most recent one features Hercules and Love Affair stringing together a house-heavy selection dating as far back as the early 90’s. I spent my lunch hour walking around downtown Minneapolis with this blasting in my ears, and I have to agree, it’s perfect for headphones.
I have a soft spot for Ginuwine‘s “Pony” (pun intended), and it would take a really blatant fuck up for me not to post a rePonymix. It’s been made to be a little more modern and trappy with a few breaks and drop additions, though thankfully that god-like bassline remains largely intact.
Lastly, it’s been a while, so I’m going to give you a bonus download from Rustie. It’s a natural extension of his LP Green Language from last year. It’s missing his typical stuttered vocal samples, but it’s still a nice and quick “take me away” kind of track, handy when you need a mental break but don’t have a lot of time.
