Coming off of a momentous 2013 including performances alongside some of his idols and an appearance on GDD’s Wide Awake Art Car at EDC Las Vegas, SURF AMBASSADOR HENDO enters the new year with a renewed vigor and refined vision for his career. In this mix, he brings us a diverse selection of new, old, and unreleased sun-soaked grooves that bring the heat. Check out the outstanding mix below, but before you jump in, here’s an important message from the man himself…
“As 2014 begins to unfold, I’ve decided to simplify a bit. I will be DJ-ing under the name Hendo come this Spring. This exclusive GDD™ Guest Mix is one of the last mixtapes I will do under the name Surf Ambassador Hendo. With a few songs in the works, some great future lineups, and a fresh twist on my mixing style, I’m really looking forward to spreading The Froth this year as I’m only just getting started…”
Time to get the week started right with an exclusive party jam brought to you by Surf Ambassador Hendo. Fresh off the boat, SAH’s brand new Re-Froth features a classic 80s style banger with a modernized dancefloor twist. Featuring plenty of cowbell, synth stabs, and funky basslines; this new track entitled “Lime – Angel Eyes (SAH Re-Froth)” is just the pick-me-up we all need in the remaining hours of our work day…
Foreword from the froth master: My last 2 mixes have been more suited for those beach party/pool froth days where mumus, mojitos, and myrtles run wild like gazelles in the San Diego zoo. Today, I bring you a mix more suited for those wild nights where you tell your buddy: “Fine, I’ll have one beer with you mate, just one” and before you know it, you’re takin’ shots of wild turkey out of a soggy shoe at the West End/Saloon/Jumbo’s Clown Room/Adelita’s etc… Consider this mixtape a tank full of fuel to pump into your El Camino strapped with boards in the back, babe in the front, hands on the wheel, and destination set to 1987. Dedicated to those long summer nites filled with fun, froth, and friends, I hope this mix finds you well and that you share the wealth! Without further adieu, I present to you “Longer Nites & Frothy Bites – July Mixtape” by Surf Ambassador Hendo:
We’ve got a frothy lineup for all of you in Los Angeles this Thursday at VS with Mighty Mouse coming all the way from London to headline alongside our buzzing buddy from San Francisco, Viceroy. Sun-kissed jams will also be provided by Waves≠Raves master, Tropicool, and an opening set by Surf Ambassador Hendo. If you’re not in Miami, you need to be here.
We’ve been waiting for this one for a while! This week at VS., we’re bringing on our good friends from the famed No Shirt/No Shoes events for a night of smooth jams and dreamy vibes. Coming off of a series of amazing pool parties at The Standard Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles this past summer, the trio of residents known as Tropicool, Bixel Boys, and Surf Ambassador Hendo made Nu Disco and Indie Dance readily available to Angelenos on a consistent basis, and now that summer is over, it’s time to move the boys inside at The Central in Santa Monica. As always, expect some great special guests to make an appearance this week as well.
The event will be FREE until 11PM this week w/ RSVP, so make sure to head over to DANCEiSM.com to get on the list!
