4080Records’ Summer Mix

Summer – the season of barbecues, waves, blue skies, beers on patios, packed clubs, and long weekends.  Thoughts of summer are invariably positive, and no other season evokes eidetic responses of similar intensity.  Part of what makes summer so emotionally salient is music.  Dope rhymes and a head-nodding beat are the perfect complement to all the moods of summer: mellow evenings watching the sun set; fast-paced, hedonistic nights at the club; insouciant days at the beach – good music improves them all. On our summer mix we’ve tried to include music for all of summer’s occasions.  We’ve thrown in some laid back, chill tracks (DL Incognito’s “90 Degrees” is perfect for loungin’ to on a balcony on a warm summer evening), as well as some classic bangers that will have the entire neighbourhood dancing at your next barbecue (Ice Cube’s “Check Yo Self” remix and ODB’s “Brooklyn Zoo”).
