Panama Wedding-Mix: Music To Cook Dinner To
The wine is poured and the mood candles are lit. If you have chosen to spend this chilly winter night in, nestled up in you Snuggie, then this is your perfect cosy playlist. New York-based Panama Wedding have whipped up this perfect mix to cook to, to stir, to bake and shake to, or just stare hypnotically into a lit fire on the couch. Self confessed foodies, this alternative indie/rock 5-piece serves up a smorgasbord of old favourites; Paul Simon, Joni Mitchell, Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan – the gang is all there. Dig in!
Jamie XX – London Rooftop: The Warm Up
You have decided to go out, good on you! Its Summer somewhere else in the world and Jamie XX is outside having a beer with his mates. You should probably do the same. This hour mix is a delight for the senses, with a video on top of Young Turks headquarters in London for a Boiler Room DJ set, all decked-out with pretty lights and bunting. What can only be described as a “A homage to London… an honorary whip through the nostalgic touchstones of UK club music, dashed also with some new material.” Best served with a side of chips and Pimms.
Porter Robinson – Radio 1 Essential Mix: Pass It On
This, ladies and gentlemen, is what we like to call the “Pass It On” mix. 70 songs in 120 minutes; each and every minute worth sharing with your friends. Just look at the track list – Chrome Sparks, CHVRCHES, Nero, Daft Punk, Panama, Touch Sensitive… If you need an education on the current direction of electronic music, then here it is. If you care to venture out, go get lost in China Town tonight with Porter Robinson, Yeo and this epic mix.
What So Not – EDC Las Vegas: From Where You’d Rather Be…
Trapped at a house party? Trapped out on the town? This is the only kinda trap you want to get yourself caught up in on a Saturday night, if you know what I mean (eiy, eiy). On Thursday we featured Dillon Francis‘ epic set at Electric Daisy Carnival LV in our Throwaway Thursdays. Today it is an ode to all the Aussie DJs travelling the world doing awesome things in places you wish you were partying. What So Not, the smash hit duo of Flume and Emoh Instead take us on a ride with all our favs – Rustie, Mr. Carmack, Outkast, Boys Noize and even a cheeky new collaboration with funnyman Dillon Francis. Drop this baby between the hours of 10pm and 1am. House-party style.
i-DJ: Martyn: 3am
Wow, 3am came up quickly didn’t it. You’ve been locked out of Kings Cross – which to many is a God send – so you clamber home back to your mate’s house and need to chill. Not talk, just chill on whatever resembles the comfort of a bean bag. i-DJ: Martyn will take you on a journey through world techno, house and jungle; so press play and let the music do what it needs to do at this god forsaken hour.

Jorge Bonjour‘s “Embrace the Hangover” mix delivers remix after remix. Todd Terje and Holy Ghost! are here to hold your hand and slowly ease you back into society.
