If Jonas Rathsman were slightly more consistent with his output of “monthly” mixtapes, his name would be right up there along side The Magician, Aeroplane + Edwin Van Cleef as the most hotly anticipated mixtapes each month. But since October, he’s done an October, January, Spring and now April mix. All fantastic but a little scattered with the consistency. But who gives a damn, right? Bottom line: Jonas Rathsman’s mixtapes are fucking brilliant. His brand of deep, noirish disco + pulsating deep house give his mixes a darker + edgier sound that puts him a notch ahead of his peers on the coolness scale. His April Mix is no exception…check out the coolness below.

Jonas Rathsman’s new Spring Mix 2012 epitomizes all that is fresh + invigorating with electronic music today. The mix is chock full of deep, sexy + soulful goodness with tracks by Mr. Rathsman’s FRΞNCH ΞXPRΞSS labelmate Chris Malinchak, Luv Shack Records’ (my new favorite label) Lee Stevens and a freshly brewed Tagteam Terror remix of the universally loved “Tobago” (just to name a few).
Springtime love starts NOW…
For all those that love getting a tan in the winter, thongs thinner than dental floss, and glistening bootay reflected off the Mediterranean Sea, this mix tape is for you. By our very own Tropicool, this tape will put the funk back in your step and make your day sparkle brighter than a disco ball at Studio 54. There are tons of exclusives littered in this mix tape and all for your aural pleasure. Enjoi, and let the Tropo-funk warm your soul.

Track list + More after the jump
Often times words like “finally” or “at long last” are used when describing our relief & excitement towards a song’s release. Being someone who covers music as we do, our time seems to be converted a little bit differently than most. In the case of “Tobago” by Jonas Rathsman, we first heard the track on previews and mixtapes about three months ago and now the track is getting its full release today. Our GDD™ Time Conversion Chart would tell us that waiting three months for a track to be released actually equates to about eight full months of agony and pain for having to suffer through those damn one and half minute previews or low quality set rips from The Magician’s Magic Tapes. Life can be rough sometimes.
So, after “months” of waiting, at long last FRΞNCH ΞXPRΞSS is releasing Jonas Rathsman’s “Tobago” EP. “Tobago” is easily one of the deepest, sexiest tracks of 2011. Along with the title track, the EP also features the equally brilliant “Feeling You”. The “Tobago” EP is out TODAY exclusively on Beatport.
