Mix Tape Monday: Last of the Summer Sun

This Labor Day send summer off with a bang with these dance inducing tracks. They’re perfect for that last summer bash. Let’s get hot in here (while its still hot out)!


Magic System – Magic in the Air. All the songs from this Ivory Coast quartet embody the idea of “joie de vivre” and their song Magic in the Air will put you in the spirit of celebration. For some bubbly sweetness listen to their cover Sweet Fanta Diallo and for their classic zouglou throwback track listen to Zouglou Dance.

Roy (film) – Sooraj Dooba Hai Yaaron. You can’t have a dance party without Bollywood and this soaring harmonic dance hall track will having you letting go on the dance floor (or beach).

Kendji Girac – Conmigo. This Catalan crooner…ahem…French singer, mixes French and Spanish (both language and musical styles) in his tracks. He’s the winner of the French Voice and while are his lyrics aren’t particularly deep but their damn catchy and just plain fun. For more dancable tracks listen to Color Gitano and Andalouse.

LOONA – Vamos a la Playa. Yes, I went there. Listen to Dutch singer LOONA and get yourself to the playa while there’s still time. That’s all I have to say.

Zion.T and HAHA – $ponsor. Ok, you got me, I’m on a major Zion.T kick at the moment, I confess. Play this Korean chill funk track to slow it down and to show off those slow jam moves one last time before the night ends. For more groovy awesomeness try Click Me and See Through.

Enjoy the last of the summer sun everyone! For the playlist click here.
