Bonobo THUMP Mix: Music to D & M to
It happens to the best of us. 1am hits and you grab the hand of some complete stranger or someone on the “outer echelons” of your friendship group, and brain dump everything you’ve ever felt about love, love or anything. Childhood stories, thoughts on the situation in the Middle-east, your ex, your favourite cheese – you name it, topics will be covered whether you can put together full sentences or not. You don’t want music that disrupts the flow of conversation, but you certainly do not want an awkward silence in the background – god forbid. Bonobo is your man to help you truly open up.

Deadmau5 – Music to give you RSI (in a good way)
Despite what he says or does away from the decks, Deadmau5 knows what he is doing. This year’s Itunes Festival in London saw the mau5 knock everyone out of the park with his latest gob smacking live performance. No other DJ has the ability to play the same loop over and over and over again, without an inch of boring. Whether its bopping, fist-pumping or hip swinging you are going to be happily sore in the morning after indulging in this mix.
JD Twitch – Bucky Skank 2014 mix: Time to stop and appreciate
Reggae & dancehall – two genres of music we do not give enough time to. We also don’t give enough time to stop, and think about how fricken sweet life is. Whether you are jam-packed with work, uni, kids or life in general, take a second to hit play and recline and look are everything from a different perspective. Relax…..
