Here’s something we welcome back with open arms: a brand new mixtape from Edwin van Cleef. Although not as consistent in terms of frequency, Edwin van Cleef’s mixtapes are certainly right on par with the likes of The Magician and Aeroplane in terms of quality monthly mixtapes (some say better). So anytime we can get our mitts on an EvC mix, our excitement levels are on high.
Earlier this year, EvC gave an upgrade to his mixtape titles. No longer does he simply name them after whatever current month he is in; he names his mixtapes after whichever favorite subgenres he is showcasing that particular month (subgenres which he totally doesn’t just make up, of course). This month is his “Starmix”, which I can only imagine is a fusion of subgenres which primarily exist in the outer reaches of the cosmos and were first discovered at some alien discotech or perhaps some pool party on Venus. It’s deep, atmospheric, galactic, funky spacehouse….or “Starmix”.
We also have an exclusive remix of the Edwin van Cleef track “Nala”. It’s an alternate mix of a track from last Winter’s “Falling” EP. The “Summer Best Pals Mix” has a much more fitting vibe to the new season with a fresh, warm Summer night feel. It’s the perfect indicator of things to come this Summer from Edwin van Cleef.
