LSM’s 10 Mixes For The Weekend
It’s been absolutely ages since I’ve put together a weekend mix selection box and as I’m off to party in field this weekend, I thought what better time to bring you one. As always there’s a range of different styles in hope that there’s a little something for everyone, so you can expect to hear Disco, Funk, Soul, Funky Breaks, Progressive House, Afro House, Breaks n Bass and Jungle from a number of recognisable names.
Dj XS always delivers great mixes and this 80 minute offering of Funky House and Disco can be used either to warm up your weekend, or wind down after it. There’s some seriously cool stuff going down here!

Ronny has entertained us with a number of tracks since we discovered him, but this is the first time we’ve had the pleasure of bringing you a mix from him. The expectancy levels will always be high for him to deliver a high quality Disco mix, because of the high standards he sets in his production work and we’re pleased to report the expectancy have been smashed. The grooviest of times await!

As we’re huge fans of Shaka Loves You, we’d just like to send our congratulations to them on their recent signing to Finger Lickin’ Records. It’s a move they’re over the moon with so lets all get in the celebratory mood with their latest mix ‘Summer Sessions Vol. 3 – Day & Night‘. This mix is a 50/50 split of easygoing Funk, Soul, Hip-Hop and Reggae that’s just perfect for the afternoon session. The second half sees the tempo and intensity pick up with a wide ranging selection of prime Disco cuts. Great times will be had!

If the news that The Allergies have started up their very own podcast doesn’t get you excited, you might need to check your pulse! This duo really knows their stuff when it comes to all things Funk and Hip-Hop, as the music they make and play proves. This is a podcast, so do expect to hear them talking about many things they’re up to and the news of a new album that’s on the way from them. There’s a few tunes from that new album to be found on this podcast, plus a damn fine mix from their great friend and MC titan, Andy Cooper.

Zemerald’s podcast is always one we keep an eye out for. Only the finest Funk, Soul, Jazz and Disco tunes make it on to his mixes and his latest one is the best of the bunch so far! Summer feels that are accompanied by waves positive, uplifting and feel good vibes. An essential spinner to get the mood just right at your party.

As we reach the halfway point, it’s time for a change in direction and sound as we bring you this truly breathtaking Progressive and Deep House mix from, Andrea Fissore, for Census Sound Recordings podcast. As you can get jaw ache from too much smiling, it’s entirely possible that you may encounter goosebump ache with the fine selection of tracks Andrea has laid down. Just stunning!

London based, Jake Cusack, has a large number of hugely enjoyable mixes on his Soundcloud page. There’s a variation of styles which include Deep House, Tech House, Disco, Funk, Soul and this one we’ve got for you, Afro House. This is a 60 minute ride of intoxicating music if ever there was one! There’s so much energy in this mix that it’s impossible to not to want to get up and move! Think warm summers evening, the suns just gone down and it’s time to start the party proper, that’s when you turn to this party piece.

It’s fair to say that Sychosis was pretty buzzin’ when he got the call from, Electric Daisy Carnival, asking him to come and drop some tunes at their Las Vegas event. It’s also fair to say that all the positive energy he gained from getting the call was put to great use as you’re gonna hear in his mighty Bass and Breaks set that was recorded from the event. It’s also, also fair to say, he smashed it!

The last two mixes in this post are a strictly Jungle affair and will add the fuel to really get you’re weekend going. They come from The Freestylers and Deekline, who both played at, Jungle Mania, in Brighton not too long ago. The Freestylers mix was dropped just before the event and features the lyrical precision of, Navigator. Deekline’s heavy mix was recorded on the night and with names like this dishing out the music, huge things will only ever go down, and they did! Bounce and skank the night away with just under two hours of intensely energetic music.

Have a great weekend everyone!
