We saw Summer poking it’s head out and invited it to stay. That means tasty festivals, sun-kissed bike rides along the beach, longer days, better lays, and even, a smashing new fixtape to usher it all in. Strait out of Belgium and just touching down on our Southern california turf, Aeroplane has landed and is here to destroy Coachella in all of its cosmic glory. He says this tape is like a bike ride in space, and we must oblige. After all, thats actually a pretty amazing description of Coachella after all.


Our friends over at Solé Bicycles just dropped off the latest installment of their fixtape series, and by golly we couldn’t wait to get our grubby paws on this one. It’s CLEARLY summer in Australia. Transient and euphoric, yet funky, the vibes will plop you down next to a pile of sand, a water source, and curve the corners of your mouth upward in this month’s fixtape. The Miami Horror boys, based out of Sydney, have really put something special together for us. We can’t stop listening, and we’re not sure if thats because we really like it, or because these tones are quite mesmerizing. Probably both. Most tracks are easy to listen to, yet provide just the right amount of funk in your step while the silky smooth vocals elevate the mind and body. Enjoy with a Cocktail. Do less, love more.

This month our friends at Solé Bicycles have partnered up with our pals over at Thump, the killer new electronic music and culture channel from VICE, to bring us a truly special fixtape. The godfather of funk, the french king of disco, the Ed Banger legend himself, Breakbot laid down close to 40 minutes of slow burning grooves. Although this tape is timeless, we highly urge you to throw it on now.

The French lord, otherwise known as Yuksek, has bestowed quite the composition of musical bliss upon us. He comes at us with a slew of timeless gems from the past, along with some tunes from the future, including his remixes of ‘Empire of the Sun – DNA’, & ‘Black Yaya – Paint A Smile On Me’ out on Partyfine now. The overall vibe of this tape encapsulates the end of our summer here perfectly. Euphoric tones & strong beating rhythms drive us strait into fall. Thanks to Solé Bicycles for yet another gem of a mixtape.
